The first weekend of NFL football had some brilliant performances. Matthew Stafford threw for 250 yards in the first half against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Cam Newton tied a NFL rookie record with 422 yards passing and of course Tom Brady’s performance on Monday night.
While those were certainly some of the most talked about performances, they were not the only ones worthy of recognition. Ben Tate, Mike Tolbert, Kenny Britt and Ed Reed all had big performances that were overshadowed.
The question heading into Week 2 is will any of the top performers last week have repeat success? Most will, some will not. Here are the 20 players most likely to have a repeat performance over the weekend.
