Matt Ryan and the Mallards are one of many 1-1 teams after two weeks
If you're looking for parity, the NFC is the place to be.
Week 1's losers returned the favor in Week 2 as every team is now knotted up at 1-1 in the NFC East and West after two weeks of play.
Leading the charge were the Dragons and Mallards, who both broke the 60 point barrier after a couple of tough luck losses in the opening week. With
Steve's excitement level over Carson Wentz growing by the hour, Matt Ryan appears to have a fire lit under him, as he tied a career high with 24 points
in Week 2 and sits tied atop the league in scoring. Could this be the year that Ryan finally delivers a MVP caliber season for the Mallards?
Meanwhile, the defending champion Dragons avoided a 0-2 start thanks to a combined 8 touchdowns, including three from Matt Forte on Thursday
night. The combination of Forte and Frank Gore continues to roll on despite entering their ninth year together: Gore added 8 points to the team
effort and the duo now sit at #6 and #9 on the all-time scoring list at RB.
Elsewhere around the league, the Llamas, Poop and Merry Men now stand as the only undefeated teams remaining, the Buddies surprised the Thugs
with an ugly 29-22 win that saw the Thugs combine for a total of just 116 yards rushing/receiving between 6 players, and the Orangutangs and Eaters
(both preseason favorites for the postseason) find themselves sitting in a 0-2 hole.
Dragons (-3) vs. Brothers
A potential NFC Title preview with a lot on the line, despite how early in the season it is. For one, the loser of this game falls to 1-2 and will be pressured to make a move to acquire an upgrade at likely a high cost. For now though, the Brothers should be pretty pleased, win or lose, with the fact that their team is 'healthy.' The ageless Dragons RB tandem will be hard to pick against until someone explains to them that they're too old to be doing this.
