Let’s hope Week 2 NFL bets in Iowa fare better than Midwest teams did in their openers last weekend.

First, the good news.

The Chiefs get a primetime spot in Week 2 when Patrick Mahomes visits Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday Night Football.

The Chiefs scrambled to a 33-29 nail-biting win at home Sunday against the Browns. The Ravens are coming off a short week after a 33-27 loss against the Raiders.

The AFC West teams went 4-for-4 to start the season. Mahomes found Tyreek Hill 11 times for 197 yards. Tight end Travis Kelce caught two scores, including the go-ahead touchdown with 7:02 left in the game.

The Chiefs-Ravens game kicks off at 7:20 p.m. Sunday on NBC.


NFC North hoping for better NFL Week 2

For those looking to watch and bet on Green Bay, the Packers get the ESPN spotlight for Week 2 on Monday night.

The Detroit Lions come to town to offer a much-needed reset at Lambeau Field. The New Orleans Saints crushed the Packers 38-3 in a Sunday afternoon game that was moved to Jacksonville as Louisiana recovers from Hurricane Ida.

The Packers pulled QB Aaron Rodgers with more than 10 minutes left in the game. He finished with a 15-of 28 passing performance, including two third-quarter interceptions that squashed Green Bay hopes for a comeback. The Packers trailed 17-3 at halftime.

The Lions turned a 38-10 fourth-quarter deficit into a one-possession games against the San Francisco 49ers. But the rally fell short in a 41-33 loss.

NFC North teams went 0-4 in Week 1, so the Chicago Bears (34-14 loss to LA Rams) and Minnesota Vikings (27-24 OT loss to the Cincinnati Bengals) also get do-overs.
