Aaron Rodgers' injured Achilles gave the Jets hope. Even though they lost their top quarterback
a few plays during their first game, they beat the Buffalo Bills, a Super Bowl candidate.
Then the Jets faced the Dallas Cowboys, the NFL's dominant team so far.
After Sunday's 30-10 triumph, the Cowboys have outscored their opponents by 60 points in the first two weeks,
twice as many as the next closest club. Dallas won its second straight after defeating the Giants 40-0 in Week 1.
It's no surprise the Cowboys are good—they've won 12 games the past two seasons.
It's unexpected that they made a major shift this offseason to win the iconic franchise's first Super Bowl in over three decades on the heels of their recent success.
Dallas hired Mike McCarthy as coach in 2020, and Kellen Moore, the team's offensive coordinator under the previous administration,
was so important that McCarthy kept him. McCarthy, a Super Bowl-winning Green Bay Packers coach, played offensively, an unlikely choice.
