Week 2’s Monday Night Football brings NFL fans two games and this AFC North battle is the last one
Last season the NFL decided to test a new format with two Monday Night Football games in Week 2. Apparently, they liked the results because this season the same thing is happening. After some great games on Sunday, Week 2 is ending tonight with two divisional rivalry matchups. The New Orleans Saints and the Carolina Panthers are opening this MNF doubleheader with an NFC South battle.
The Pittsburgh Steelers started the season with a huge 30-7 loss playing on the road against the San Francisco 49ers. Now they will have the chance to make up for their fans. Playing at home, Pittsburgh has to win in order to avoid the Browns to climb up to 2-0. The Baltimore Ravens are already 2-0, while the Cincinnati Bengals are 0-2. The Steelers also don’t want to be 0-2.
Meanwhile, the Cleveland Browns beat the Bengals 24-3 in Week 1. Now they are visiting the Steelers for their second rivalry match in two weeks. They are trying to repeat their performance from last week and climb up to 2-0, tying with the Baltimore Ravens’ record.
Kenny Pickett had a terrible game in Week 1, throwing two interceptions and attempting 46 passes in a desperate move to avoid the loss. On the other hand, Deshaun Watson played well against the Bengals. However, he also threw a pick. But he had a great rushing game with a touchdown.
