Calvin Ridley's breakout continues in week 2

Calvin Ridley is off to a historic start to the 2020 NFL season. He stole the show on Sunday, catching a team-high seven receptions for a game-high 109 yards and two touchdowns.

In the same game, Julio Jones and Amari Cooper combined to catch eight receptions for 124 yards while failing to find the end zone.

Ridley is currently on pace to finish the season with 128 receptions, 1,912 yards and 32 touchdowns.

For a little perspective, in his first two seasons combined, Ridley caught 127 receptions, 1,687 yards and scored 17 times.

Jalen Hurts make his debut

Jalen Hurts didn't have to wait long to see the field. He lined up as a wide receiver on a few plays for the Eagles.

On one play, Philadelphia quarterback Carson Wentz faked it left to Hurts before tossing a 10-yard completion to tight end Dallas Goedert across the middle of the field.

The Eagles also deployed Hurts on other plays including a running play from the Rams' 3-yard line.

While these trick plays aren't the reason the Eagles drafted Hurts, their inclusion in the second week suggests that Hurts' role with the offense will continue to increase.

Josh Jacobs dominates opening week

Josh Jacobs proved he was a man among boys when he powered the Raiders to a 34-30 victory over the Panthers on Sunday after carrying the ball 25 times for 93 yards and three touchdowns while catching four receptions for 46 yards.

"That was a little bit like (former Chicago Bear running back) Walter Payton used to play," Gruden said to Sacramento Bee reporter Anthony Galaviz. "It was hot as hell. He got beat up early. He insisted on coming back, and he insisted on getting the ball as a runner and receiver. He is special.”

Cyrus Jones eyes return to the NFL

Defensive back Cyrus Jones was cut by Baltimore in November. Shortly after joining the Denver Broncos their team doctor discovered he had a congenital coronary defect and would need open-heart surgery.

“If I would have not got cut by Baltimore, I would have never found out what was really going on with me,” Jones said to Baltimore Sun reporter Glenn Graham. “...They say the majority of the time, you never know until the worst thing happens — you drop dead — and, after the fact, they figure it out. So somebody has been watching over me this whole time, for 26 years.”

According to Graham's reporting, Jones is expected to workout for a handful of teams soon in hopes of landing a spot on someone's practice squad.
