What we learned in NFL Week 2: Young QBs on the rise; how much trouble are Jets, Chargers in?

What have we learned from the early batch of games? FOX Sports’ staff of NFL writers joined forces to deliver insight and analysis from around the league. In this weekly story, we’ll tell you what we noticed, what we heard and what to keep an eye on next.
