NFL Updates: News From Around the League, Week 2 Schedule and More
September 14, 2015
Most of the teams around the NFL have finished up their Week 1 games, and we’ve got even more football to look forward to tonight. In the meantime, let’s check out some of the headlines and notable players in the news right now.
Giants-Cowboys Wrap-Up: Despite some very costly turnovers (two picks and a fumble) which the Giants promptly turned into points, the Cowboys eked out a victory over the New York at home last night 27-26.
Tony Romo found TE Jason Witten twice for touchdowns in the fourth quarter, overcoming the loss of No. 1 WR Dez Bryant, who suffered a broken foot and will be out of action for 4-6 weeks.

The Colts went down in flames yesterday, falling to a supposedly inferior (but realistically much-improved) Bills team 27-14.
New QB Tyrod Taylor was big in this one, logging a 14-of-19 line for 195 yards and a TD. That would equate to a 123.8 passer rating.
Taylor also racked up 41 yards on nine totes, highlighting a solid effort on the ground for the Bills.
Over in the NFC, the Packers got the better of the Bears once again, thanks to a nice effort from QB Aaron Rodgers. He tossed three touchdowns in the 31-23 win, and also managed 35 rush yards.
Green Bay will try to make it two in a row this week when they take on the defending conference champion Seahawks.
Back to the AFC East for a moment, let’s check in on the Jets and Browns. New York opened the season with a win yesterday, thanks to a pair of rushing touchdowns and a pair of passing touchdowns in a 31-10 victory at home.
Johnny Manziel got into this game early, as starting QB Josh McCown exited with a concussion after a crazy spinning hit on a near-touchdown. We’ll have to watch that situation this week to see who’s getting the start in the next game.
