Better start -- Chiefs or Dolphins?
For the Kansas City Chiefs, 2012 was a bizarre disaster (six Pro Bowlers, two wins). For the Miami Dolphins, it was an intermittently successful rebuilding year (7-9 with a rookie coach and QB). For both, 2013 has been quite a bit better. With a 17-16 home decision over the Dallas Cowboys, the now-Andy Reid-led Chiefs matched their win total from a season ago. With a 24-20 victory over Andrew Luck's Indianapolis Colts, the Ryan Tannehill/Joe Philbin Fins also moved to 2-0 -- and matched their road win total (two) from last campaign. It's early -- very early -- but things are looking up for these long-scuffling franchises.
Robert Griffin III ran for 138 yards and two touchdowns in the Redskins' win over the Vikings, snapping Washington's eight-game home losing streak. The second touchdown, a 76-yard scamper, was the longest rushing touchdown by a quarterback since Kordell Stewart in 1996.
Russell Wilson went from hearing talks of his job being on the line to throwing three touchdowns in an upset win over the Patriots.

Andrew Luck got the biggest win of his short career by defeating the Packers in a game dedicated to Colts head coach Chuck Pagano, who is battling cancer. Luck threw for two touchdowns and ran for another in the 30-27 victory, but was his deed Grade-A worthy?
