Presenting the latest version of the weekly snapshot
Hanging by a moment
NFL games are a mix of emotions: anger, sadness, joy, pain, you name it. Often it's easy to pick one particular moment and spotlight that to summarize what went on during the game. So, that's what we did! We present our gallery of images from the latest week of NFL action. By the way, did you know that Vanilla Ice performed at the Titans-Texans game? With that knowledge, let's dive into the the Week 2 Snapshot -- Sid Saraf
Ravens 14, Browns 6
Things weren't looking good in Baltimore. The defending champs were holding on to a one-point lead and could have been in danger of starting the season with an 0-2 record. But, that's when QB Joe Flacco (right) connected with rookie Marlon Brown for a 5-yard touchdown pass to seal the win. Sighs of relief were heard throughout the city.
Raiders 19, Jaguars 9
Two bad offenses clashed in Oakland on Sunday. Someone had to win. But hey, at least Darren McFadden ran for 129 yards!
Falcons 31, Rams 24
The Falcons offense was running hot in the first half and Julio Jones was on fire. His 81-yard catch and run for a score gave Atlanta an early two-touchdown lead and the team never looked back.
Packers 38, Redskins 20
Robert Griffin III didn't have a good game for the Redskins, but would it have mattered if he did? Aaron Rodgers sliced and diced Washington to the tune of 480 passing yards and 4 TD passes. In the end, all RG3 could do was pay respect.
Saints 16, Buccaneers 14
Oh, what might have been for the poor Buccaneers. They had a lead with a couple minutes remaining and somehow managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Welcome to 0-2. And as far as the Saints are concerned, Tampa's loss is their gain.
Cardinals 25, Lions 21
Do you think the Cardinals wanted this win? Check out the reaction after a clutch stop on fourth down with time running out in the fourth quarter.
Dolphins 24, Colts 20
Andrew Luck did his best to put together his ninth career comeback win, but Miami's Phillip Wheeler put a stop to that. His sack of Luck on fourth down late in the fourth quarter ended Indy's hopes and pushed the Dolphins to a 2-0 start. Bravo, sir!
Chargers 33, Eagles 30
Nobody would have blamed the Bolts if they had lost a tough road game in Philadelphia. But sorry, Eddie Royal was having none of that. His third touchdown catch on the game on Sunday kept San Diego in the game and made it possible for Nick Novak to later kick the game-winning field goal with seconds left. Great win.
Broncos 41, Giants 23
That's three wins for Peyton Manning in three games against his little brother Eli. But does that affect their brotherly love? Of course not. The two meet up for a simple exchange after the game is over.
Bills 24, Panthers 23
EJ Manuel got his first victory as a pro, directing a nine-play drive that ended with his 2-yard touchdown pass to Stevie Johnson with 2 seconds left. What makes the win even sweeter? Getting in a hug with his father right after the game. That's cool.
Texans 30, Titans 24
The Texans have been searching for a wide receiver to line up opposite Andre Johnson. That search could be over. Rookie DeAndre Hopkins caught 7 passes for 117 yards, including the game winner in overtime. Way to go, kid!
Bears 31, Vikings 30
Chicago needed to pull a rabbit out of a hat to beat Minnesota at home. Are those long ears on tight end Martellus Bennett? Because the Bears' big offseason acquisition proved he's worth the money, pulling down a TD pass from Jay Cutler with just seconds remaining to push Chicago to the thrilling win. It was Bennett's second TD grab of the game and his third of the season.
Seahawks 29, 49ers 3
Seattle has a defense; so does San Francisco. The Seahawks' young QB struggled mightily on Sunday night; so did the 49ers'. The Seahawks have Marshawn Lynch; the 49ers ... uh, OK, Seattle wins. On Sunday night, the biggest difference between the two Super Bowl contenders was indeed on the ground, where Lynch (No. 24) racked up 98 yards and 2 scores at home; the entire 49ers offense ran for only 100. Perhaps the West will be won on the ground this season.
Chiefs 17, Cowboys 16
Hey, remember how the Chiefs were terrible in 2012? Well, all you have to do is add new coach Andy Reid and let him work his magic. Congratulations, Kansas City ... your team is 2-0 after holding to beat Dallas!
