Two weeks into the NFL season and eight teams sit at 2-0. Some of them, such as Denver, New England, Houston and Pittsburgh, aren’t that surprising given their respective outlooks headed into this season.

But there have been some early surprises too, like the New York Giants, which may have a defense to complement its potent offense. Baltimore also is 2-0 as the Ravens have made the most of a healthier team, while Minnesota weathered an Adrian Peterson injury on Sunday night to beat Green Bay and move to 2-0 atop the NFC North.

But perhaps the biggest surprise of all to this point is that Philadelphia is 2-0 behind its rookie head coach-quarterback combination of Doug Pederson and Carson Wentz. Wentz has looked poised beyond his years, but the No. 2 overall pick will face a strong test Sunday when the Steelers come to town.

The quarterback position also will be in the spotlight in New England on Thursday night, as the Patriots could be down to their third quarterback, rookie Jacoby Brissett, due to a shoulder injury suffered by Jimmy Garoppolo. Whoever is under center will have to deal with J.J. Watt and a Texans defense that currently ranks third in the league and already has registered nine sacks.

And although both teams aren’t undefeated, Denver’s visit to Cincinnati is still an important one, as Trevor Siemian looks for his first big road win as an NFL starting quarterback.
