NFL Week 2 questions

The NFL's second week has come and gone, and both Washingtons made big news. The D.C. version saw its team lose quarterback Robert Griffin III to an ankle injury -- but win in big fashion anyway behind Kirk Cousins. The team from the state of Washington, meanwhile, was stunned in a 30-21 loss to the Chargers, with cornerback Richard Sherman being called out by San Diego players. What do you make of the week's major storylines?

The numbers say Tom Brady no longer is a top-five quarterback. Brady, meanwhile, says only one number matters: the score. All of which is to say, the status of the New England Patriots star is up for discussion. Where does the three-time Super Bowl champion rank among the NFL's signal-callers today?

Giants sign Josh Freeman

Eli Manning's hold on the Giants' starting quarterback position just got a little less secure. The Giants have agreed to a deal with former Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman to be Manning's backup, but given Manning's poor performance last season -- only 16 touchdowns against 27 interceptions -- and recent ankle surgery, this signing might be more than just insurance in case Manning goes down. Freeman has struggled in his career after a hot start, but if Manning starts this season off with a bushel of interceptions, he could find himself with an opportunity to restart his career.
