Jets 20
Colts 7 In a rematch of Super Bowl III, Andrew Luck played like present day RGIII–3 INTs and a career-high 4 total turnovers. No one has turned it over more than Luck has the last two seasons (28) so Indy better get him some help, STAT. And quietly, the Jets are a 2-0 squad with a potentially dominant defense. New York is the first team since the 1992 Steelers to force 5 turnovers in each of its first two games. (AP/AJ Mast)

Rams 10
Redskins 24 For the second straight year, St. Louis followed up a big win over Seattle with a clunker on the road: The ‘Skins — led by rookie Matt Jones’ 123 yards and 2 TDs — ran roughshod over Gregg Williams’ defense, and Kirk Cousins had the 4th best completion percentage in team history (85 percent). Troll that, Jeff Fisher. (AP/Alex Brandon)

Patriots 40
Bills 32
Different city, same results. Rex Ryan may have moved to Western New York, but he’s still talking loud and getting humbled by Bill Belichick. Of course, it’s easy to shut Rex up when you have Tom Brady; his 24 career wins against the Bills are the 2nd most against a single team since the NFL/AFL merger. (Getty Images/Tom Szczerbowski)

Texans 17
Panthers 24 Remember when I said Cam Newton has to be Superman for Carolina to win this year? Well, he’s got the Panthers off to a 2-0 start and making plays like this to notch his 25th career game with both a TD pass and a TD run. (Foto AP/Chuck Burton)
PITTSBURGH, PA - SEPTEMBER 20:  Antonio Brown #84 of the Pittsburgh Steelers catches a 56 yard pass in the fourth quarter against Tramaine Brock #26 of the San Francisco 49ers during the game on September 20, 2015 at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  (Photo by Justin K. Aller/Getty Images)
49ers 18
Steelers 43 Pittsburgh’s offense rolled over San Fran’s defense. No surprise there. The real surprise is that the pro coach in Pennsylvania going hog wild with the 2-point conversion is Mike Tomlin and not Chip Kelly. (Photo by Justin K. Aller/Getty Images)
Bucs 26
Saints 19 Opponents have marched into New Orleans and won 6 straight games, Drew Brees is suddenly “just a guy,” and the defense can’t stop a nosebleed. It’s over for the Saints. And it’s every bit as bad as Jim Mora says it is. (Getty Images/Ronald Martinez)

Lions 16
Vikings 26 Let’s be honest … all is right in Minnesota because Adrian Peterson is back and they’re playing home games outdoors again. (AP/Ann Heisenfelt)
Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson (31) runs past Chicago Bears cornerback Terrance Mitchell (20) for a touchdown during the second half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Sept. 20, 2015, in Chicago. (AP Photo/David Banks)
Cardinals 48
Bears 23 As great as Matt Jones has been for the Skins, David Johnson is scoring almost every time he touches the ball. Johnson is the first player in the last 15 seasons to score a rushing TD, receiving TD and a kick return TD in his first two NFL games. With Seattle slumming, this might be Arizona’s division to lose. Sorry Chicago. The Bears are who we thought they were. (AP Photo/David Banks)
San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers (17) throws in the second half of an NFL football game against the Cincinnati Bengals, Sunday, Sept. 20, 2015, in Cincinnati. (AP Photo/Gary Landers)
Chargers 19
Bengals 24 Philip Rivers leaves this game with the accolades (he extended his completion streak to 22 and passed Jim Fouts as the Chargers’ all-time leader in TD passes), but Andy Dalton comes away looking like the guy with a better chance at lasting longer in the playoffs. Cincinnati looks like the best all-around team in the AFC North. (AP Photo/Gary Landers)
Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel (2) celebrates after throwing a 50-yard touchdown pass to Travis Benjamin in the second half of an NFL football game against the Tennessee Titans, Sunday, Sept. 20, 2015, in Cleveland. (AP Photo/Ron Schwane)
Titans 14
Browns 28 You know it’s a good day in Cleveland when the defense brings Marcus Mariota back to earth (hard) and Johnny Manziel plays so well his agent starts trolling Merrill Hoge on Twitter. Sorry to pee on your hydrant, Dawg Pound … but the last Browns QB to throw 2 TDs with fewer than 10 completions was Tim Couch in 2003. True to form, even when Johnny Football plays well he’s keeping bad company. (AP Photo/Ron Schwane)
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Allen Robinson (15) scores a touchdown as Miami Dolphins cornerback Brice McCain (24) tries to stop him during the first half of an NFL football game in Jacksonville, Fla., Sunday, Sept. 20, 2015. (AP Photo/Stephen B. Morton)
Dolphins 20
Jaguars 23
Blake Bortles and Allen Robinson took Jaguars fans and Dolphins defenders to school in their first September win since 2012. Now click this link so you can fully appreciate this awesome pun. (AP Photo/Stephen B. Morton)
OAKLAND, CA - SEPTEMBER 20:  Derek Carr #4 of the Oakland Raiders celebrates a win over the Baltimore Ravens at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum on September 20, 2015 in Oakland, California.  (Photo by Ezra Shaw/Getty Images)
Ravens 33
Raiders 37 You can look at this as a Baltimore choke job, but I’m calling this a statement by Oakland. The Derek Carr/Amari Cooper tandem led the Raiders to their first September victory in two years, and announced their presence as the league’s pre-eminent young passing combo. And don’t cry for the Ravens. Yes, this was their first game without Ray Lewis, Ed Reed or Terrell Suggs since 1998. Yes, it’s their first 0-2 start since 2005. But their next three games are in-division, with two at M & T Bank Stadium … so they can actually grab hold of the AFC North by sweeping all three. (Photo by Ezra Shaw/Getty Images)

Broncos 31
Chiefs 24 Talk about going from hero to goat: Jamal Charles rushed for 125 yards and a touchdown Thursday, but his two fumbles led to 10 Broncos points that were the difference in the game. Still, Denver has to be the luckiest 2-0 team in the league, overcoming Peyton Manning’s obvious struggles to win their league-record 13th straight divisional road game.
