Week 2 Results Prove NFL's Parity

(This post sponsored by Prilosec)

As you look at the results from this past weekend and the current standings after two games of the 2010 NFL regular season, there's just no way you could have predicted things would look like this. Just two weeks proves that there is nothing in comparison with the NFL's "level playing field" compared to the mess that is major league baseball.

Who would have expected the Dallas Cowboys to be 0-2 and at the bottom of the NFC East? Likeswise for the winless Minnesota Vikings in the NFC North and the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC West. Who would have put both the Chicago Bears and Tampa Bay Buccaneers at 2-0 at this point? Over in the AFC, the surprises show the Kansas City Chiefs (AFC West), Houston Texans (AFC South) and Miami Dolphins (AFC East) all undefeated and atop their respective divisions.

Even in the powerful AFC North, most wouldn't have expected to see the Ben Roethlisberger-less Pittsburgh Steelers at 2-0, ahead of both the Cincinnati Bengals and our Baltimore Ravens at this point of the season. Of course, so many thing can and will change over the next 14 games but for now, there were some impressive victories in week two and are sure to be more in the crazy, wonderful world that is the NFL.
