Top five NFL MVP candidates
In Week 2 of NFL games, the season has continued to be as unpredictable as ever with Super Bowl contenders such as the New Orleans Saints, San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks all losing their games.
The Green Bay Packers avoided an 0-2 start with a second-half comeback against the New York Jets, and teams such as the Houston Texans have surprised with a 2-0 start.
Here are five takeaways from the latest NFL games.
5. The New Orleans Saints defense is a disappointment
The Saints entered the season as frontrunners to win the Super Bowl, mainly because they have Drew Brees as their quarterback. However, they were also expected to have possibly the best secondary in the league along with a solid pass rush, giving them an elite defense. This was for good reason since Rob Ryan rejuvenated them in his first year in New Orleans by helping them finish in the top five.
They have started the season ranked 30th in total defense and 31st in scoring defense. They allowed Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan to throw for 448 yards and three touchdowns on them, and they allowed the Cleveland Browns to score 26 points on them as they fell to 0-2. Unless the defense can snap out of it, it’s looking like they may hold the offense back from leading this team deep into the playoffs.
