NFL Week 2 What To Watch For 2015

NFL Week 2 What To Watch For 2015

Week Two in the NFL is only a day away now, and with 32 teams playing you can’t watch every game. Here’s a few big matchups to look out for in Week Two:

The Legion of Boom vs. Philip Rivers: River’s had arguably the best season of his career under Mike McCoy’s offensive system, making all the right throws at the right time and fitting balls in windows that didn’t look open. But the question is, can Rivers keep up this productivity against the Seahawks defense? Richard Sherman and company made Aaron Rodgers look like Jamarcus Russell last week; but with all the weapons the Chargers have on offense, will they be able to stretch the field and put some points on the board early?

Cameron Wake vs. Seantrel Henderson: The Buffalo Bills seem to think they made quite the seventh-round selection taking Henderson. After a great game both on run plays and in pass protection, Henderson looks like a potential Pro Bowler early in the season. However, the Bills play the Miami Dolphins this week, which means Henderson will have to prove himself against the pass rushing skills of Cameron Wake. Wake had two sacks last weekend against Tom Brady, so of Henderson’s inexperience proves to be a problem E.J. Manuel could find himself on the ground more often than he’d like.

The Giants offense vs. the Cardinals defense: In their Monday Night loss to the Detroit Lions, Eli Manning and the Giants offense looked sloppy and unprepared. Manning looked all-around uncomfortable in the new offensive scheme, and his receivers seemed confused by the new hand signals. Manning would attempt to signal and change the offensive play, but the receivers were consistently running the wrong routes. The Cardinals defense of the other hand looks phenomenal early in the season. Todd Bowles has done a fantastic job designing a defense that stops the run game, effectively leaving teams no choice but to try and pass against their aggressive secondary which includes superstar cornerback Patrick Peterson. Manning has had quite a problem with interceptions as of last season, and it appears to have carried over into 2014. If the Giants don’t have something hidden up their sleeve, it could be a feeding frenzy for the Cardinals secondary tomorrow in New York.

Peyton Manning vs. the Kansas City Chiefs defense: The Chiefs defense was one of the few defenses in the NFL that was able to slow down Peyton Manning (to a point) last season; however, this is not the same defense by any means. Brandon Flowers was a huge problem for Manning last year in Kansas City, but he’s not with the team anymore. The Broncos on the other hand added Emmanuel Sanders over the offseason, who has proved to be a great option for Manning. Also, due to the NFL’s new drug policy, Wes Welker has been reinstated and may be able to play at least a few downs this week. The Chiefs still have Tamba Hali and Justin Houston, but they will need to get to Manning on almost every down if they expect to stop this high-powered Broncos offense.
