Week 2 NFL Results
Oh boy, what a painful week that was! Figuratively for most but sadly, literally for some key players around the league as the Injuries-Grim-Reaper called on the NFL in week 2.
One of my favourite non-Bears, the Giants’ Saquon Barkley tore his ACL and is out for the season, as did the 49ers defensive end, Nick Bosa and the Broncos’ wide receiver Courtland Sutton. The Broncos also lost their young quarterback Drew Lock, for a few weeks at least and another super star running back, Christian McCaffrey, went down with a high ankle sprain. The 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a similar injury to CMC but it is likely that Jimmy G could play through, so the impact might not be so severe for him.

Week 2 FFL Fantasy Football Results
Another top scoring show from Rob this week, beating Mark with almost 180 points for the second week running. That sees the 2 Far From Lombardi members standing 1st and 2nd in the league at 2-0. Clearly nobody wants a free jersey… Despite scoring 150+ points in both of his games to date, Mark finds himself propping up the table with Lamar MVP, both now on 0-2.
