Hard-Hitting Fun: Five 2010 NFL Week 2 Games That Will Be Brutal
You want hits? We'll give you hits.
There are hits, and then there are HITS. Ray Lewis and the Baltimore Ravens smashed the New York Jets in Week 1 while the Packers and Eagles forced the creation of a new triage center in the tunnel on the way to the locker rooms.
This Sunday will be no different as some of the matchups will get brutal.
But that's just one of the many reasons we all watch football.
Ray Lewis Will Destroy Carson Palmer
The Bengals got their butts whipped last week by the New England Patriots.
This week they have to deal with Ray Lewis, who even at 35 years old still is a force to be reckoned with.
Expect the sound bytes out of this game to include a lot of groaning and cries of pain.
Mark Sanchez Is In For Another Rough Day
If Mark Sanchez thought last week was tough, now he gets to play a real grudge match against the New England Patriots.
There's no love lost between these two teams, and the bone-crunching hits will be coming fast and furious.
The Steelers vs. The Titans, 'nuff Said
See the guy in the photo with the million-dollar hair? Yeah, Troy Polamalu hits hard.
The Steelers also have one of the league's all-time cheap-shot artists in Hines Ward, so you know there's going to be some pushing and shoving out there.
(Note To Steelers Fans: ESPN and NFL Network have done more than one piece on Ward's reputation as a cheap-shot artist, so save the hate for someone else.)
The Titans under Jeff Fisher always have been a hard-hitting team, so there's going to be some busy trainers on the sidelines at this game.
The Bears Could Be In Trouble
The Bears do not have a good offensive line, and the Dallas Cowboys are going to want some redemption after last week's game.
It could be an ugly day to be a Bears fan.
The Manning Bowl Will Feature Mannings Being Hit
The Manning Bowl is going to be more than a quarterback clinic. Each Defense will be tasked with taking the other Manning down.
That's the best gameplan you can have, and it will be painful for Archie to watch.
