Quarterback Josh Allen and his Buffalo Bills get off to an outstanding start to the season in the NFL: The Tennessee Titans are picked apart in the second game of the season. But the Super Bowl favorite not only has reason to be happy, because Dane Jackson has to go to the hospital after a violent collision.
Super Bowl favorite Buffalo Bills has cemented their status in the NFL with their second convincing win of the season. In the first home game, the Bills beat the Tennessee Titans 41-7 on Monday night. Quarterback Josh Allen had a strong night of football, just like he did at the start against the defending champion Los Angeles Rams, finishing with four touchdown passes and a total of 317 yards in the air.
Stefon Diggs caught three of the touchdowns, catching a total of 148 yards of passes. "We had some guys with incredible moves but Stefon was amazing," Allen said. "We know he's one of the strongest receivers in the sport right now, if not the strongest,"
There were concerns about a head injury to defenseman Dane Jackson, who crashed into a Bills colleague in the second quarter and had his neck clearly stretched back. The game was then suspended for almost ten minutes. Jackson was eventually taken to a hospital. "He can move his arms and legs completely, which is good, but we're still waiting for more updates," said coach Sean McDermott.
In the second game of the evening, the Philadelphia Eagles won their home game against the Minnesota Vikings 24:7. Quarterback Jalen Hurts was man of the game with three total touchdowns. He got two himself, and made Quez Watkins' one possible with a pass. In total, he threw for 333 yards. The Eagles are one of just six teams in the NFL who are undefeated after two games.
Meanwhile, the police are investigating an unsightly incident on Sunday. Quarterback Kyler Murray is said to have been punched in the face by a fan after the Arizona Cardinals' win over the Las Vegas Raiders. Video of players cheering with fans inside the stadium shows a man's palm landing on Murray's face as several other fans slap him on the shoulder and cheer. Whether the action was intentional or a mistake cannot be said with certainty based on the recording. According to US media, the police in Las Vegas did not provide any detailed information about the incident, but only confirmed investigations.
