Week 2 of the 2010 NFL season is official and things are starting to shake out.
Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts beat up on baby brother Eli and the New York Giants 38-7, and looked a lot more like last year’s Super Bowl team this week. The New York Jets also turned things around from last week’s listless performance and beat the Patriots 28-14. But things are looking mighty dark in Big D, where Tony Romo and the Cowboys lost their second in a row, falling to the Bears 27-20, and equally bad in Minneapolis, where Brett Favre and the Vikings were throttled 14-10 by the Dolphins.
