got any blow?
Hey man, we’re here for the game/orgy.

The beginning of week 2 marks the last bastion of universal optimism towards the new NFL season. Teams that stumbled out of the gate last week were able to attribute their losses to over-preparation or mere bad luck. Fantasy football owners can write off a bad opener to a lineup that needed minor tweaking. However, after this week, what were formerly considered aberrations will graduate to full-blown grounds for panic. Enjoy it while it lasts.

Here’s your early games, graded on Flub’s Foolproof Four Star System:

Baltimore @ Cincinnati ***
Pittsburgh @ Tennessee ***
Miami @ Minnesota **
Buffalo @ Green Bay **
