Week two started early with a Thursday night game in Foxboro Massachusetts. It was a dark and stormy night, though not the only one this week. Lightning and rain actually delayed Sunday games in Tampa, Florida and Seattle, as well. Tom Brady struggled through pouring rain for most of the Patriots' contest with the Jets. After the delay in Tampa Bay, Marques Colston makes a clutch catch from Drew Brees in the waning moments to help set up the winning field goal. Colston only caught four passes for 63 yards, but none were bigger than the last one.  Soldier Field was another sloppy venue, where Jay Cutler lead his Chicago Bears on a game—winning drive to trump the Minnesota Vikings 31—30. On the receiving end was tight end Martellus Bennett; it was his seventh reception of the game.  Ron Parker changes the momentum of the game for the Kansas City Chiefs with this strip sack of Tony Romo of the Dallas Cowboys. The Chiefs went on to get the slim victory by the margin of 17—16.  In Houston, DeAndre Hopkins took over the game for the Texans , capping a seven catch, 115 yard day with this touchdown catch to seal the ovetime win against the Tennessee Titans.  Eddie Royal's three touchdown day ruled the game for the San Diego Chargers as they pulled—out a see—saw battle over the Philadelphia Eagles.  Aaron Rodgers was in the zone with his receivers, leading his Green Bay Packers to victory over the Washington Redskins with 480 passing yards and four touchdowns.  Marshawn Lynch powered the Seattle Seahawks past the San Francisco 49ers with a combination of bruising running and catch—and—run brilliance.  It was a week of close games and exciting finishes. At times, emotions ran high and frustration came to the forefront. But in the end, we saw a great weekend of action from start to finish.
