The New York Giants will host the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday in Week 2 of the NFL 2015 regular season. The Giants will be kicking themselves for allowing themselves to lose a winnable game in Week 1 against the Dallas Cowboys, and they will be hoping to get things back on track today. The game has a scheduled start time of 1 p.m. ET and takes place from the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The game can be watched on TV on the Fox network, but can also be watched online through live stream via the link below.
If things went slightly differently last week then this match up could be seeing the 1-0 New York Giants playing the 0-1 Atlanta Falcons. But slight margins can change games, and so it proved in Week 1, and in the end if ended up being the 1-0 Falcons taking on the 0-1 Giants in this Week 2 clash.
The Giants threw away the game against the Dallas Cowboys, managing the clock in the final minutes poorly, allowing the Cowboys to exploit some under-par defending to crash to a 27-26 defeat.
The Falcons meanwhile looked like they were about to lose the game, but a missed field goal by the Philadelphia Eagles' kicked Cody Parkey allowed the Falcons to claim a 26-24 victory.
Whether the teams will experience similar fortunes in Week 2 remains to be seen.
Week 2 in the NFL regular season will be another weekend packed full of big games.
No fewer than 14 games will be taking place on Sunday as teams look to try and gain an early advantage in their divisions in the race for the Playoffs.
Earlier this week on Thursday Night Football, the Denver Broncos improved their record to 2-0, defeating the Kansas City Chiefs 31-24. The two teams were inseparable for the opening three quarters, and following a pointless first quarter, both teams scored 14 in the second to leave things 14-14 at half time.
In the second half things remained tight, and a field goal for each team in the third quarter saw the game enter the final quarter with the game still deadlocked.
However, the Broncos finally managed to get their noses out in front, scoring two touchdowns to one in the final quarter to maintain their perfect start to the new season.
But things did not come easy for Peyton Manning and his team. It took Broncos cornerback Bradley Roby to return Jamaal Charles' fumble to score a 21 yard touchdown with just 27 seconds remaining to win the game.
In that game, Manning threw for 256 yards and three touchdowns, the third of which came with just 36 seconds to go to tie up the game and set the stage for the dramatic finale and Roby's final touchdown.
The result will be a difficult one to swallow for the Kansas City Chiefs, who slip to 1-1, as Knile Davis had scored with just over two minutes to go to give the Chiefs the lead. However, it was not to be as the Broncos staged an amazing comeback at the death to extend their win streak over the Chiefs to seven straight games. In addition, Manning improved his personal record against the Chiefs to a stunning 14-1.
Whether today's game will be as dramatic remains to be seen.
