It seems fitting that a second-year quarterback and the second coming of Fitzmagic were among the standout performances in Week 2 of the NFL season.
Mahomes took home AFC Offensive Player of Week after he threw six touchdown passes to tie a Chiefs record in the team's 42-37 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. He finished the game completing 23 of 28 passes for 326 yards. Through two games, he's passed for an astounding 582 yards and 10 TDs -- not a bad way to kick off your first season as a starting QB.
Fitzpatrick also is off to a phenomenal start. The 35-year-old connected on 27 of 33 passes for 402 yards and four touchdowns in a 27-21 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles to earn NFC Offensive Player of the Week. The performance -- in conjunction with his 417-yard, four TD effort in the season opener -- has jumpstarted talk about Fitzpatrick staying ahead of Jameis Winston on the depth chart once the former No. 1 overall pick returns from suspension in Week 4.
Tennessee Titans safety Dane Cruikshank was named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week after scoring a 66-yard touchdown off a pass from Kevin Byard on a fake punt during a 20-17 victory over the Houston Texans. San Francisco 49ers kicker Robbie Gould was named the NFC Special Teams Player of Week after kicking three field goals, including the eventual game-winner on a 36-yard boot in the fourth quarter, in a 30-27 triumph over the Detroit Lions.
