One of the best matchups of the weekend has to be football’s version of the “Running of the Bulls,” a ground-and-pound contest between Texans RB Arian Foster and Raiders RB Darren McFadden.

With Sunday’s action is in the books, some early impressions of what went down in Week 2.
We’re now six days away from the start of the 2011 NFL season. When the Browns host the Bengals on Sept. 11, Cleveland will do all they can to prevent the kind of yardage Terrell Owens dropped on them in 2010 — a 10-catch, 222-yard effort in a game Cincinnati still lost, 23-20.

With Mikel Leshoure now done for the season, the fantasy draft value of Jahvid Best is on the rise.

Appearing on the “Cover Two Podcast” with Steve Wyche and Bucky Brooks, Eagles president Joe Banner openly discussed how the team is actively entertaining trade offers for cornerback Asante Samuel, who could be the odd man out in the secondary after the acquisitions of Nnamdi Asomugha (free agency) and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (trade).
And we’re down to No. 1. In Elliot Harrison‘s breakdown of the top 20 games of 2010, his gold medal goes to a late-season thriller between the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants — that essentially ended the Giants’ playoff hopes and invigorated those of the Green Bay Packers.
NFL Network’s Mike Mayock released his latest rankings of top five prospects per position, with Boise State WR Titus Young making one of the biggest leaps. Young is listed third, behind Georgia’s A.J. Green and Alabama’s Julio Jones.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin has been named as a late addition to the 2011 Pro Bowl, it was announced Thursday.
The good folks on the NFL Network research desk have sent out the statistical notes from the Packers’ 21-16 win over the Eagles on Sunday.
Michael Vick and the Eagles had no comeback magic this time around.
That’s right, many of your fantasy leagues will come down to Tuesday night because Sunday night’s tilt between the Vikings and Eagles has been postponed.
