    While the Sunday games in Week 2 of the NFL season weren't nearly as wild as Week 1, there were still plenty headline-generating results and eye-popping scores, especially at the end of the 1 p.m. ET window.

    The Miami Dolphins surged back from a 35-14 deficit against Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens to tie things up at 35 toward the end of the fourth quarter. The Ravens scored a field goal to gain a little breathing room, but the Dolphins marched down the field and got the ball to Jaylen Waddle in the end zone for the 42-38 win.

    The two highest-scoring receivers in fantasy after the early slate of games were both Dolphins: Tyreek Hill and Waddle, each with 40-plus points in points-per-reception (PPR) scoring.

    Meanwhile, the New York Jets were down 13 points with 1:55 left in the game when Corey Davis hauled in a 66-yard touchdown. The Jets then recovered an onside kick and rookie Garrett Wilson scored a 15-yard touchdown on the resulting drive to pull ahead of Cleveland 31-30.

    The Browns had one last drive to right the ship, but an interception from Ashtyn Davis sealed the win for the Jets.

    Thanks largely to the efforts of wideout Amon-Ra St. Brown, who had 39.70 fantasy points, the Detroit Lions stomped the Washington Commanders 36-27. And the New York Giants continued to silence the haters as they went up 2-0 on the season with a 19-16 win over the Carolina Panthers.

    The roller-coaster ride of Week 2 didn't let up as the late-afternoon games kicked off. The Arizona Cardinals escaped with a 29-23 overtime win over the Las Vegas Raiders, due to the heroics of Kyler Murray on a touchdown with 0:00 left on the clock in regulation, two scampering 2 point conversions, and a walk-off 59-yard fumble return by Byron Murphy Jr. to cap off the come-from-behind victory in Las Vegas.

    While the Los Angeles Rams escaped with a 31-27 win over the Atlanta Falcons, they had to fight off a furious comeback by the Falcons, a team that has seen its fair share of blown leads. An interception by Jalen Ramsey in the end zone ended up sealing the game for the Rams, who finally got Allen Robinson II involved with four receptions for 53 yards and a touchdown. Cooper Kupp continued his steady march of excellence, finishing with 11 catches for 108 yards and two TDs.

    The Cooper Rush-led Dallas Cowboys squeaked by on a walk-off field goal to take down the Cincinnati Bengals 20-17, causing the reigning AFC champions to fall to 0-2. Across the country, the San Francisco 49ers pounded the Seattle Seahawks into submission with a 27-7 win in Santa Clara, but it may have come at a cost. QB Trey Lance hurt his ankle during the game and will likely miss the rest of the season.

    Let's take a look at the NFL scores as they roll in, updating after the afternoon slate and Sunday Night Football, as well as the biggest fantasy football stars in Sunday's action.
