Week 2 of the 2018 NFL season is scheduled to get underway on Thursday, September 13, when the Baltimore Ravens take on the Cincinnati Bengals from Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati, Ohio. Both teams were victorious in Week 1, and with the Browns and Steelers playing to a tie on Sunday, this game has already become huge in terms of standings in the AFC North.

AFC title redo

The Week 2 schedule is jam-packed full of great games, but the biggest has to be the AFC championship rematch from last season between the Jacksonville Jaguars and New England Patriots.

In that game, Jacksonville jumped out to a 14-3 lead midway through the second quarter, but as he has done so many times before, Tom Brady led a tremendous second-half comeback to help lead the Patriots to the 24-20 win.

According to a CBS Sports report, the Patriots will head into this matchup as the underdogs - something that has not happened since 2016. Westgate Sportsbook has the Jags listed at -1.5 as of Wednesday morning. While that isn't a big number, Jacksonville is still technically listed as the favorite to win this game.

The Jags seem to be more than capable to pull off the victory this weekend, but Tom Brady and the Patriots just seem to always find a way to win. This should be a heck of a game!

Other marquee matchups scheduled for this weekend include Philadelphia at Tampa Bay, Minnesota at Green Bay, and Denver at Oakland. Two other games to keep an eye on are Detroit at San Francisco and the NY Giants at Dallas. All four teams lost in Week 1, and none of them want to fall to 0-2 on the season.

Detroit Lions fans were holding their breath when QB Matt Stafford went down with what looked like a horrible knee injury.

However, NFL.com is reporting that Stafford is 100 percent and will be ready to go this weekend.
