NFL Week 2: Sunday TV schedule topped by Raiders at Steelers

Saints at Panthers: New Orleans quarterback Jameis Winston threw only 20 passes Sunday, and five of them went for touchdowns in a 38-3 throttling of a seemingly uninterested Packers team. But the Saints also emerged from the win a bit banged up. Three-time Pro Bowl cornerback Marshon Lattimore reportedly had surgery to fix a chipped bone in his thumb and is week-to-week, defensive end Marcus Davenport probably will miss time with a pectoral strain, and center Erik McCoy could miss six weeks with a calf strain. The Saints also had a pandemic disruption during the week, with six offensive assistant coaches, a nutritionist and one player (all of them vaccinated) testing positive for the coronavirus. While it might be folly to read much into a Week 1 win over the woebegone Jets, particularly when the Jets are starting a rookie quarterback, Carolina looked like it had a fully operational defense, sacking Zach Wilson six times and holding New York to 4.2 yards per play. (Only two teams were worse.) Linebacker Shaq Thompson had a busy day with 10 tackles, an interception, a sack and three pass deflections.
