What you need to know: Packers still own Bears, Tua rolls, Lions and Jaguars rollon September 19, 2022 at 5:32 am

It’s Week 2 of the 2022 NFL season, and we had two epic fourth-quarter comebacks.

Tua Tagovailoa had six passing touchdowns and led the Miami Dolphins back from three scores down against the Baltimore Ravens — in a game in which they trailed from the very first play after a 103-yard touchdown return. In the late window, the Arizona Cardinals overcame a 23-7 fourth-quarter deficit to force overtime with a 2-point conversion with no time remaining, then defeated the Las Vegas Raiders in overtime on a walk-off scoop-and-score.

The rivalry between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the New Orleans Saints got heated. After both teams found little offensive success over three quarters, a scuffle resulted in Marshon Lattimore and Mike Evans getting ejected. Tom Brady and the Buccaneers’ defense came alive in the fourth quarter to lead Tampa to victory.

The Detroit Lions and Jacksonville Jaguars had offensive breakouts, while the New England Patriots and New York Jets got key road wins after Week 1 losses. And the New York Giants are 2-0 — a rare sight in recent years. On the other side of the coin, the defending AFC champion Cincinnati Bengals are now 0-2, losing to the Dallas Cowboys on a walk-off field goal in the late afternoon window.

Also in the late window, San Francisco 49ers second-year quarterback Trey Lance suffered a serious ankle injury that will reportedly keep him out for the season. Jimmy Garoppolo filled in admirably in Sunday’s victory over the Seattle Seahawks.
