28. Carolina Panthers

It was a tough start for first-overall pick Bryce Young, who threw for 146 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the Panthers' loss to the Falcons. Another divisional matchup awaits next week when the Panthers host the New Orleans Saints.

27. Tennessee Titans

Tennessee struggled to get anything going offensively against New Orleans. Ryan Tannehill threw for 198 yards, no touchdowns, and three interceptions. It could be a long season for the Titans.

26. Denver Broncos

Are we sure Nathaniel Hackett was the problem last season? The Broncos didn't look much better offensively in their first game under Sean Payton, scoring only 16 points at home against the Las Vegas Raiders.

25. Chicago Bears

Some things don't change. The Bears talked a good game during the offseason, but they were destroyed at home by the Packers. It's their ninth straight defeat to Green Bay, leaving Chicago with a lot of questions moving forward.

24. New England Patriots

The Patriots lost to the NFC-champion Philadelphia Eagles in Week 1, but they kept it close. Some encouraging takeaways for New England.

23. Minnesota Vikings

Minnesota went a perfect 11-0 in one-score games last season but lost at the first time of asking this year, a stunning home defeat to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Vikings have a brutal schedule in the coming weeks.
