NFL Week 2 schedule: 5 teams that need to win the most

It’s time for football again, as the NFL Week 2 schedule is here. These five teams desperately need to get in the win column.

5. Cleveland Browns

After almost beating the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 1 before falling 33-29, coming home to take on the Houston Texans (somehow the current No. 1 AFC seed) represents a must-win. Cleveland is the superior team by a wide margin, and with the home opener on tap, it’s a nice spot for Baker Mayfield and Co. to get rolling. If the Browns can get right this weekend, they’d have to feel good about their first two weeks despite the initial setback.

4. Green Bay Packers

No team needs to feel better about itself more than the Packers. Green Bay went into its game with the New Orleans Saints as a favorite last weekend, only to lose 38-3 while Saints quarterback Jameis Winston threw for five touchdowns on only 20 attempts. The humiliating loss has the Packers recovering a bit, but they now welcome in the Detroit Lions on Monday night. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has a perfect opportunity to get a comfortable win here.

3. Minnesota Vikings

Sticking with the NFC North, the Vikings are coming off a horrific loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Minnesota came back from a 21-7 deficit and extended the game to overtime but ultimately fell short. Now the Vikings are on the road again, this time against a quality opponent out west in the Arizona Cardinals.

Minnesota isn’t going to have an easy time slowing down quarterback Kyler Murray and Co., so the Vikings’ offense needs to be on point. A scary thought when you consider the offensive line, and Cardinals edge rusher Chandler Jones notching five sacks in Week 1.

2. Buffalo Bills

After falling to the Pittsburgh Steelers in the opener, Buffalo has a chance to rebound against a divisional foe in the Miami Dolphins on South Beach this weekend. Quarterback Josh Allen and his offense struggled mightily against Pittsburgh, only scoring 16 points. While Miami has a good defense under head coach Brian Flores, the group is inferior to the Steelers. It’s likely Buffalo can’t go 0-2 and have a real shot at contending for the top seed in the AFC, making this a must-win.

1. Baltimore Ravens

This one is simple. The Ravens lost in heartbreaking fashion to the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday night. Now they face the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night in their own building. If Baltimore wants to keep pace in the ultra-competitive AFC North, it needs to find a way. Going 0-2 to start the season doesn’t mean no playoffs by any stretch, but it represents a major, early hill to climb for the division.
