Texans running back Arian Foster had only 69 yards on 19 carries Sunday, but he took it in stride. "What did we have -- 500 yards passing? They stopped the run," Foster said per USA Today. "But it shows how explosive our offense can be." Foster had a breakout game in week one against Indianapolis.
Ravens Wide Receiver's T.J. Houshmandzadeh and Derrick Mason combined for just one reception Sunday. If the Ravens hope to go far this season they really need to go the two involved, much like the duo did against the Jets in their opener on Monday night.
Chad Ochocinco was frustrated after a subpar offensive day. "(Terrell Owens) continues to remind me when I get frustrated that it's only week two. It's Sunday, but we're only at Sunday school right now," Owens said per CBSSports.com. "It's early. We haven't even gotten to church yet."
On Sunday, Titans running back Chris Johnson had his streak of consecutive 100-yard games halted at 12 by the Steelers. The Steelers defense limited him to just 34 yards on 16 carries. Given the uncertainty at quarterback for Pittsburgh, the great play of the defense on Sunday can boost the 2-0 side, which was supposed to struggle to start the year.
For any talk of which quarterback is better, Peyton Manning is now 2-0 in regular season games against brother Eli. In the two games, he also has better stats. All told in the sibling rivalry, Peyton has combined for 45 completions out of 67 passes, four touchdowns and one interception and 531 yards. Eli's numbers aren't bad with 33 out of 58 completions, 4 four touchdowns and two interceptions and 408 yards. Both brothers have one Super Bowl ring, but Peyton has one more Super Bowl appearance, as well as two more appearances in a conference championship game. Peyton is also closer to getting his pension, as he has been in the league five years more than his little brother.
