Two weeks have already passed in this new NFL season, in which we can point out that there is a great parity among the teams, since, even though some of them start as favorites in their respective games, they have failed to meet expectations and, on several occasions, they have not managed to win.
One of the great positive surprises at the beginning of the season is that Miami Dolphins have shown to have the confidence and the illusion to go far this season. The Chiefs continue to reaffirm that they are favorites for the championship title. As well as the Buccaneers want to reach the Super Bowl again and get the victory.
It is still too early in the season to say which team is a step above the rest, besides, every week we get pleasant surprises in the games that are played, and, in this week 2, this was no exception.
But the lesson leaned towards never getting complacent with the score in your favor, whatever the time left on the game clock and the lead you protect, on any given Sunday.
The Browns had a 99.8% chance of winning their game against the Dolphins, as they led by 21 points in the last quarter, but Miami, with a 28-3 run in the final quarter, managed to win with a final score of 42-38.
The Cardinals also had a spectacular comeback in their last quarter against the Raiders, as they were down 23-7 and, with a stupendous 16-0 run in the last quarter and a 6-0 run in overtime, they won 29-23.

One of the big surprises of this week 2 of the NFL was the defeat of the current runner-up, the Cincinnati Bengals with a score of 17-20 against the Dallas Cowboys.
This game was a true reflection of what Dallas has become accustomed to in recent years, full of mistakes, penalties, losing leads, and an offense that disappeared in the second half, but they were still able to take the victory against a Bengals that do not seem to wake up.
Cooper Rush got his second win as a starter in an NFL team, replacing Dak Prescott, with a good game only in the first half.
The Cowboys disappeared offensively in the second half and from being down 17-3 at halftime, allowed the Bengals to equalize with less than five minutes to play in the fourth quarter.
Dallas finally got a dramatic 50-yard field goal with three seconds on the clock to leave the Cincinnati Bengals down 17-20.
Result: Cowboys (20) – (17) Bengals

The Chargers took a 3-0 lead in the first quarter. On their first two drives, the Chiefs turned to the ground attack to try to put points on the scoreboard, both of which were stopped. In the second quarter, Herbert hauled in a pass into the end zone with running back Zander Horvath to extend the lead 10-0.
The Chiefs marched 70 yards in 10 plays that culminated in a touchdown pass from Mahomes to Jerick McKinnon to make it a 10-7 game.
