In Week 2, NFL teams went 14-2 at home, a statistic that resulted in a number of upsets.

Teams like the New Orleans Saints, Baltimore Ravens and Denver Broncos—all good teams—were not able to overcome home-field advantage (and/or replacement-referee ineptitude) and found themselves with the short end of the stick.

It's impossible to know if that trend will continue into Week 3 and beyond, but it is notable. If the replacement refs continue to let themselves be influenced by home crowds, visiting teams will find it harder and harder to come out on top.

Week 2 also showed us just how unpredictable this age of parity can be in the NFL. Teams like Cleveland, Buffalo and Arizona looked infinitely better in Week 2 than in Week 1, while teams like Washington, Arizona and the New York Jets fell completely off the map.
