The ultimate guide to get ready for NFL Week 2

It’s Week 2. Teams that opened the season with a win will want to keep the good times going. Teams that opened the season with a defeat will desperately strive for that first victory.

Vikings WR Justin Jefferson meets the team that passed on him in the 2020 NFL draft to select Jalen Reagor, who recently was traded to the Vikings.

Sneaky-good game of the week: Miami Dolphins at Baltimore Ravens — A win over the Ravens last season was a turning point of sorts for the Dolphins who entered the Week 10 matchup in Baltimore at 2-7 and finished the season at 9-8.

After surviving until Week 8 last season and going to distance in 2020, we were eliminated right out of the gate this season, no thanks to Nathaniel Hackett’s puzzling late-game management (Status: Eliminated 😞). We weren’t alone … only 1,586 of 4,630 entries remain alive after Week 1 in USA TODAY Pro Football Survivor Pool. 

So, for fun, we will provide one more survivor pick for this season before moving on. And this week, we really like a bounce-back from the defending Super Bowl…
