QB Game Ball - Matt Hasselbeck, Tennessee - 30/42, 358 yards, 1 TD, 1 Int
While the Titans running game is still looking to get on track, Hasselbeck is taking it to the air with ease. This week he put up big numbers against a tough Ravens defense to lead Tennesee to their first win of the season. Kenny Britt had another huge game with 9 catches for 135 yards and a touchdown. If Hasselbeck can stay healthy and Chris Johnson finds his groove the Titans should rack up the wins this year.
QB Honorable Mention - Cam Newton, Carolina - 28/46, 432 yards, 1 TD, 3 Int (keeping pace with Tom Brady.)
RB Game Ball - Fred Jackson, Buffalo - 15 carries, 117 yards, 2 TD, 2 catches, 23 yards
The Buffalo Bills are 2 and 0 so far thanks to a high scoring offense. No, really. After pounding the Chiefs last week 41-7 they put up 38 to beat the Raiders on Sunday. Those 79 points lead the NFL. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has gotten off to a great start with 7 touchdown passes in those two games. And the running game has been solid thanks to the man with the quietest name in football - Fred Jackson. The Bills top runner now has 100-yard performances in each of the first two games.
RB Honorable Mention - Matt Forte, Chicago - 10 carries, 49 yards, 10 catches, 117 yards (should probably be listed at WR)
WR Game Ball - Miles Austin, Dallas - 9 catches, 143 yards, 3 TD
The good news for the Cowboys is that they won a game that they probably shouldn't have. (And in dramatic fashion.) The bad news is that after an awesome performance by Austin, he hurt his hamstring and could be out for a few weeks. And after a gutsy performance from Tony Romo, it looks like he has some broken ribs and a punctured lung and may miss time as well. At least it was a great game.
WR Honorable Mention - Eric Decker, Denver - 5 catches, 113 yards, 2 TD (start checking the waiver wire.)
TE Game Ball - Rob Gronkowski, New England - 4 catches, 86 yards, 2 TD
After watching his teammate Aaron Hernandez steal the show in week one, Gronkowski got his due on Sunday against the Chargers. The Tight End duo have combined for 24 catches, 337 receiving yards and 5 touchdowns in the first two games. Unfortunately those joint numbers may start to dwindle as Hernandez may be missing some time with a torn MCL. Either way, Gronkowski has proven he is a big part of a powerful offense.
TE Honorable Mention - Tony Gonzalez, Atlanta - 7 catches, 83 yards, 2 TD (not showing any signs of slowing down.)
THE GAME-USED SOCK AWARD
Stinky Sock Honorable Mention - Matt Cassell, QB, Kansas City - 15/22, 133 yards, 0 TD, 3 Int (and no more Jamal Charles - oof!)
Kerry Collins, QB, Indianapolis - 19/38, 191 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT
One of the hardest things about being a quarterback in the NFL is that when things go bad it is the quarterback that shoulder a lot the blame. The fact that the Colts stink really isn't the fault of Kerry Collins. The defense isn't stopping anyone, there isn't much of a running game and heck, he's only been on the team for a few weeks. But someone needs to take the stinky sock for the horrible performance by the Colts against the Browns on Sunday. If Collins is smart he'll give the nasty smelly sock to the coach or GM or, well, Peyton Manning if he can find him. Good luck Kerry
