Welcome to a new weekly feature here at Dave & Adam’s Card Land as we highlight some of the players that had big days around the NFL. Here are the Dave & Adam’s Card Land “Leaders of the Pack” for Week 2 of the NFL season.
We’ll start off with Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers who led Green Bay to a 31-24 come from behind victory over the New York Jets. The Packers trailed 21-9 late in the first half but Rodgers threw for three touchdowns to lead the comeback, including an 80-yard hook up with Jordy Nelson to give them the lead. He completed 25 of 42 passes and threw for 346 yards as the Pack shake off their opening day loss to the Seahawks.
Be sure to “double-check” out all the Aaron Rodgers cards available on DA Card World including a 2010 Upper Deck Exquisite Collection Premium Patch card. Only 50 of these cards were produced in the year that Rodgers led the Packers to a Super Bowl 45 win over the Steelers.
The Dallas Cowboys picked up their first win of the season thanks to running back DeMarco Murray. Murray ran over the Tennessee Titans defense with 167 yards on 29 carries and a touchdown in the 26-10 win. The Cowboys jumped out to a 16-0 halftime lead and never looked back as they overcame their lackluster week one performance against the 49ers.
Murray burst on to the scene in 2011, in his rookie season, as he rushed for almost 900 yards. We have a 2011 Topps Precision Rookie Autographs Gold Ink card in stock at DA Card World from his first year in Jerry World.
It was an emotional day at Ralph Wilson Stadium on Sunday as the Buffalo Bills paid tribute to their late owner, Ralph C. Wilson Jr., with a convincing 29-10 victory over the Miami Dolphins. Bills first round draft pick, Sammy Watkins, caught his first career touchdown pass late in third quarter to help solidify the win. Watkins finished the game with eight catches for 119 yards to help the Bills improve to 2-0 and take sole possession of first place in the AFC East.
The buzz surrounding the former Clemson wideout will only increase after his performance on Sunday. Look out for Sammy Watkins rookie cards in many of the 2014 football sets, including 2014 Upper Deck Flair Showcase, 2014 Topps Football and 2014 Panini Rookies & Stars Football.
