Chris JonesIt looks like Jones is ready for big things. Jones recorded a sack in the Cardinals game, making it two in three quarters. He also intercepted and forced one fumble. He has been replaced at defensive tackle so the Chiefs don't need to worry about him changing his defensive position. Jarran ReedAlso, he had a bag. — Adam Teicher

While it is easy to just say that the preseason doesn't count, there were some plays on Friday night which could have caused concern for the Cardinals. There was some miscommunication in the first quarter between the quarterback and receiver. Kyler MurrayLarge receiver Rondale MooreOne play, one thing A.J. GreenOne team may be better than the other. Perhaps it was a small kink in the system that needed to be fixed, but those kinds of problems so close to the regular-season are not to be dismissed. First-team offense for the Cardinals was a disaster. Murray ran for only one of the four yards, and Murray had just one run for eight yards. Although it may not be important, it was certainly ugly. — Josh Weinfuss

A standout performerWashington RB Jaret Patterson: 16 carries, 71 yards, TD

NFL Week 2 Updates and Schedule

Bengals rookie wide receiver Ja'Marr ChaseThe last 72 hours will be remembered as an educational experience. Bengals cornerback Chidobe AwuzieDuring Wednesday's practice, Chase defeated the 2021 fifth-round pick. Chase lost three targets on Friday against Washington. All of the drops were made by Chase while on third downs. Chase's struggles with dropping targets throughout training camp have been a problem. However, in his breakout 2019 season at LSU, he had a mere six drops on just 124 targets, according to ESPN Stats & Information. Chase may have had trouble getting into the football rhythm since he left 2020. Or maybe it was just an unfortunate couple of days. Chase will look to fix it before the regular season begins. — Ben Baby

Washington's offense was expected to be more efficient this season but it did not perform well against the Bengals. Ryan FitzpatrickThrew for 96 yards and completed seven of his 13 passes. Although he made a good throw, the passing game was lacking rhythm. Dyami Brown for 29 yards. It was inconsistant with the run game Antonio GibsonHe is a large back, but still has to learn how to utilize all of his strength to make more sense in situations where he needs to sprint. Jaret Patterson was undrafted rookie. His work included some practice with starting players and he also returned a kickoff of 37 yards. Washington may need four running backs to help him on special teams. He continues to demonstrate that he is a runner with some speed and patience. It's possible they have discovered a true gem.John Keim

Game on Thursday



Cam Newton scores a touchdown of 28 yards on Jakobi Meyers late in the quarter.

A standout performerPatriots QB Cam Newton: 8-of-9 passing for 103 yards, 1 TD, 0 INT

NFL Week 2 Updates and Schedule

Cam NewtonThe most important statement he made was that he will not give up his job as quarterback. He finished the game 8 of 9, for 103 yards and one touchdown. Newton was as relaxed as he has been in his Patriot days, even against Eagles second-string defense. His 28-yard touchdown to receiver made Newton look as at home as a Patriot. Jakobi MeyersMeyers followed him, and he gave Meyers a hand signal prior to the snap. This was his way of indicating his intent. It shows a QB/WR who are operating at their best from a presnap communication perspective. In the interim, Mac JonesThere were some highlights, including Jones' first drive that covered 91 yard in 17 plays. It took 9:04 off the clock. Jones was 13 of 19 for 146 yards in four drives. — Mike Reiss

Rookie receiver DeVonta SmithMade his preseason debut with two catches of 19 yards and four targets. Smith was able to move freely and wasn't affected by his injury, which kept him away from practice for two weeks. Smith caught his second catch, starting inside. He then hit the brakes and cut back to beat the cornerback. Michael JacksonSmith was able to show his Heisman Trophy-winning qualities for the reception at a distance of 10 yards. Smith had to take some time to shake off the rust. His night began with just a few drops and a pair of passes that were not perfect. Joe FlaccoWho started as a patient with an illness? Jalen HurtsSmith was a smooth player and the games progressed. The game opened pretty regularly. It was an excellent warm-up game for the regular season opener against the Atlanta FalconsOn September 12,Tim McManus
