NFL scores 2016: Wentz, Eagles stay perfect with win over the Bears

New, comments

The Eagles were just too much for the troubled Chicago team to handle.

Week 2 of the NFL season came to a close with a Philadelphia Eagles victory over the Chicago Bears, 29-14, Monday night.

The Eagles benefited from some solid play from rookie quarterback Carson Wentz, while the Bears suffered at the hands of Jay Cutler, who left early with an injury to his throwing hand.

Highlights

The Ravens got on the board against the Browns when they scored on one of the rarest scoring plays in the NFL.

Move over, Dan Marino. Drew Brees is now third on the all-time passing yards list.

Matthew Stafford absolutely trucked the Titans' Perrish Cox.

The Dolphins are having radio problems in New England. *thinking face emoji*

Kids went all Hunger Games on each other over a Cam Newton football.

Lions tight end Eric Ebron got penalized for faking a defender out of his cleats.

Kelvin Benjamin made a nifty one-handed grab, and the Panthers really enjoy having him back.

LeGarrette Blount is BFFs with a few Revolutionary War soldiers.

Melvin Gordon's mom can finally wear his jersey now that he's scoring touchdowns.

Mark Barron tried to pick off a Russell Wilson pass with his helmet.

Falcons scored a go-ahead TD thanks to an absurd ricocheted pass.

The Jaguars got blown out by the Chargers and Jared Odrick was NOT having it.

The Vikings' new stadium paid homage -- both intentional and not -- to Prince.

Major injuries

Jimmy Garoppolo, filling in for Tom Brady during his four-game suspension, left the game against the Dolphins with a shoulder injury and did not return. Rookie Jacoby Brissett took over for Garoppolo under center. Garoppolo may be ready to play in Week 4, but he will likely miss the Patriots' game against the Texans on Thursday Night Football.

Dolphins running back Arian Foster also exited with a groin injury and was ruled out for the remainder of the game.

In a scary moment, Saints CB P.J. Williams was carted off after taking two hits to the head. He briefly lost consciousness and was transported to the hospital, but he has movement in his extremities.

Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart did not return to the 49ers game after injuring his hamstring. He will sit out Week 3.

Josh McCown injured his left shoulder against the Ravens in the first quarter but came back into the game. He will miss at least Week 3 and the Browns will start rookie QB Cody Kessler.

Browns center Cameron Erving went to the hospital after the game after suffering a bruised lung. DE Carl Nassib will also miss time due to a broken hand.

Lions running back Ameer Abdullah injured his foot against the Titans and did not return.

Doug Martin suffered a hamstring injury early against the Cardinals and didn't return.

Danny Woodhead was carted off the field after taking a hit to his right leg. He was diagnosed with a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the season.

Thomas Rawls is dealing with a leg injury and did not return against the Rams. The X-rays came back negative.

The already banged up Colts added WR Donte Moncrief (head and neck), CB Antonio Cromartie (shoulder) and Darius Butler (hamstring) to their list of injured players. Cromartie returned to the game, but Moncrief and Butler did not.

Broncos right tackle Donald Stephenson was ruled out with calf injury, while DeMarcus Ware left the game and is expected to miss 3-4 weeks with an ulna fracture.

Jaguars OT Kelvin Beachum was carted off the field after apparent head injury.

Adrian Peterson hurt his right knee in the third quarter of the Vikings' Sunday night game against the Packers. He was diagnosed with a torn meniscus, and there is no timetable for his return yet.
