Sunday Night Superstars: Week 2 standouts include Cam Newton, Corey Coleman & plenty more

The end result was the same old, same old for the Cleveland Browns, but how they got there wasn’t the same.

The quarterback looked good in the first half, the running game looked decent and rookie Corey Coleman made it look impressive early on. The rookie out of Baylor had only five catches, but they went for 104 yards and two touchdowns before the Browns browned as usual. Last week Coleman had just two catches but one was for 58 yards as part of a 69-yard day so we have seen so far that this former Baylor standout will be a receiver to watch this year when it comes to big plays that translate into big attention on cardboard.

Jimmy-Garoppolo

— Jimmy Garoppolo The Big Brady’s replacement as the New England Patriots QB came out strong early with three touchdown passes on 18-for-27 passing for 234 yards but he left the game due to injury, handing over the controls to Jacoby Brissett, who went 6-for-9 for 92 yards. Does it matter to chase either of their RCs and autos in three weeks? Probably not, but it was an impressive game for Jimmy G.

— Sterling Shepard The Saints-Giants game wasn’t pretty stats-wise, but Shepard continued to show that he’s a rookie to watch for New York with 117 yards on eight receptions. The former Oklahoma star’s RCs are found throughout this year’s brands from Panini America.

— Dak Prescott With his arm the Dallas Cowboys’ rookie QB completed 22 of 30 passes for 292 yards in the victory, but it was with his legs that he made a little history. He rushed for a TD, which was the first rushing score by a Cowboys QB since 2012, according to ESPN. Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 83 yards and a TD on 21 carries to keep the rookie tandem on collectors’ radars, though neither’ stats are amazing. According to Elias, Prescott also set a record for an NFL rookie with the most passing attempts without an interception in his first two games — 75 for him vs. Warren Moon‘s 72 — and it’s a mark that will grow next week.

cam-newton

— Cam Newton The defending MVP didn’t look good early with a pick on the Panthers’ first possession, but they finished strong with a dominating day. He completed 24 of 40 passes for 353 yards and four touchdowns after that pick in a dominating win. His RCs are found back in 2011 packs.
