    The ultimate reality show on television today is the NFL. The NFL has all the drama, passion and story lines that any of the other reality shows have on TV today.

    There are many faces in new places in 2010 and a lot of them are helping their new teams win games or helping them more competitive.

    Let's take a look at ten players who performed well in week two with their new teams.

LaDainian Tomlinson

    LaDainian Tomlinson had over 100 yards of total offense against the Patriots. He looked like the LT of a couple years ago who made the Chargers offense explosive.

    It's great to see Tomlinson bring some action to the Jets offense after an Sham-Not-So-Wow performance against the Ravens.

    The Jets beat the Patriots 28-14.

Mark Clayton

    Mark Clayton was with the Ravens since 2005 until he was released this offseason. One teams trash could be another teams treasure.

    The St. Louis Rams picked up Clayton late in the offseason and so far it it paying off.

    Even though the Rams lost to the Raiders, Clayton performed well and helped the Rams keep it close.

Terrell Owens

    Terrell Owens is now with the Bengals after playing with the Buffalo Bills.

    Many thought his career was on the way down, but if you play for Buffalo odds are you are going to have a down year.

    The Bengals played the Ravens on Sunday and their wasn't much offense in the game.

    Owens had three catches for 57 yards which led the team. His partner in crime, Chad Ochocinco, had four catches for 44 yards.

Thomas Jones

    Thomas Jones was among the leaders in rushing last season for the Jets.

    The Jets felt he was no longer needed and the Chiefs felt that he would be a great pick up.

    Jones led the Chiefs in rushing with 83 yards on 22 carries against the Browns. The Chiefs escaped the dawg pound with a victory.

Julius Peppers

    Julius Peppers was an unhappy camper in Carolina. He was all smiles with a new contract and a new home with the Bears.

    His Bears beat the Cowboys in Texas. Peppers helped bring pressure on Tony Romo all day. The Cowboys had to focus a lot of their protection towards Peppers helping other players bring pressure.

    Peppers and the Bears defense had a great game and now are 2-0.

Kamerion Wimbley

    Kamerion Wibley was the Cleveland Browns draft pick in 2006. He was traded to the Oakland Raiders his off season to help stop the run and pressure the quarterback.

    Wimbley recorded a sack for the second straight week in a row against the Rams.

    He helped dominate the Rams in the second half as the Raiders beat the Rams 16-14.

Brandon Marshall

    Brandon Marshall was a solid member of the Denver Broncos until Josh McDaniels ego decided to run him off like he did to Jay Cutler.

    Marshall grabbed four passes for 71 yards in the Miami Dolphins upset over the Minnesota Vikings, which I predicted would happen in my weekly upset prediction article.

Derek Anderson

    Derek Anderson is the new starting quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals.

    He was ousted by the Browns and the new Mike Holmgren regime, and beat out Matt Leinhart for the starting job.

    He had a passer rating of 42.5 and threw two interceptions. He helped the Cardinals lose against the Falcons and did his best to convince Cardinal fans that he is not much better than Leinhart.

T.J. Houshmandzadeh

    T.J. Houshmandzadeh played for the Seahawks last season and played for the Bengals for all of his career prior to that.

    He must have been very excited to be on the Ravens this Sunday when the visited the Bengals.

    Nothing like being shut out by your old team to prove to them that they made the right decision when they let you go.

    He had no catches and helped the Ravens lose to the Bengals.

Kyle Vanden Bosch

    Kyle Vanden Bosch was wearing a different shade of blue in 2009. He played for the Titans and now plays for the Lions.

    The Lions played the Eagles on Sunday and almost made a comeback late in the game. Michael Vick started and getting to Vick is not easy. Vanden Bosch recorded six tackles and 1.5 sacks against the Eagles.
