The five best games were hard to choose with such a loaded schedule week in and week out. However, the National Football League might have more parity than ever before. Especially in the AFC, it seems like at least 12 out of the 16 teams in the conference could make the playoffs. The only problem is there are only seven spots up for grabs.
While in the NFC for the first time in a while it’s looking a little weak. As you only really have like four main contenders, which opens a ton of playoff spots up for some below par teams this season. This also means there’s a ton of room for mistakes when it comes to the NFC this year. However the season ends up going, we are in store for one of the greatest seasons in the history of the game of American Football. These are the five best NFL games for week two of the 2022 season.
The Five Best Games Of Week 2
Los Angeles Chargers @ Kansas City Chiefs
The AFC West is going to be one of the best divisions in the National Football League this season, which made including this one on my “Five Best Games” of the week an easy decision. The Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers will be two of the best teams in the AFC this season in my opinion. I think that will show in this game as I expect Patrick Mahomes and Justin Herbert to put on a back-and-forth masterclass.
Seattle Seahawks @ San Francisco 49ers
Moving from the AFC West to the NFC West for another crazy divisional matchup this early in the 2022 National Football League season. This was another easy game to add to my “Five Best Games” list, as this one will likely feature brand new quarterbacks for both of these storied franchises. As the Seattle Seahawks moved on from Russell Wilson and the San Francisco 49ers are rumored to be moving on from Jimmy G.
Cincinnati Bengals @ Dallas Cowboys
The defending AFC champions and super bowl runner-ups against the so-called “America’s Team”. The Bengals will be looking to return to the Super Bowl this season and keep the Joe Burrow and Jamar Chase connection. While the Dallas Cowboys will be looking to finally get some playoff wins and return to the glory days of yesterday in big D. This should also be a showcase of running backs as Joe Mixon will be going head to head with Zeke Elliot is one of my Five Best Games of the week for week two of the National Football League.
Arizona Cardinals @ Las Vegas Raiders
It will be Kyler Murray vs Derrick Carr in this early season West Coast matchup between two potential NFL playoff teams in 2022. The Cardinals fell off the wagon last year after Murray’s injury while Carr led the Raiders to the playoffs after a season full of turmoil within the Raiders organization. This could end up being one of the better games of the season as these two underrated quarterbacks are going head to head early on in what should be a great season for both of them. This is easily one of the five best games of the 2022 season for week two.
Tennessee Titans @ Buffalo Bills
Last year’s number one seed in the AFC will face off with another team who choked their way of the playoffs, the Buffalo Bills. The Tennessee Titans are likely in the process of replacing Ryan Tannehill with Malik Willis, while the Bills and Josh Allen are still looking to take the next step and make the Super Bowl this season. This will also be a good measuring stick game to see if Henry has returned to form after his season-ending injury last season. This is easily one of the best five games of week two of the NFL season.
