NFL preseason week 2 results, highlights, updates: Saints first-round WR Chris Olave scores first career TD

The NFL’s preseason has reached the midpoint with Week 2, which serves as a de facto “dress rehearsal” for first-timers to prepare for the start of the regular season — which is just three weeks away. For teams that don’t have joint training this week, week 2 of pre-season is essential.

The Carolina Panthers won’t play Mayfield Baker and Sam Darnold against the New England Patriots Friday, however, New England will play its incumbents after joint training this week. Jordan love will start for Green Bay Packers against the New Orleans Saintswho will be without James Winston (foot). To crown the night will be the Houston Texans at Los Angeles Rams.

Below, we’ll follow all the must-see highlights of Friday’s action, the main course appetizer for the games this weekend.

What makes this Etling touchdown special? The piece occurred during an interview with Aaron Rodgers on the Packers show. Rodgers’ excitement with Etling’s score makes this game even more exciting.

Jordan Love run

Love seemed to be one NFL quarterback Friday night, finishing with 113 yards and a touchdown pass. He also showed his running ability with that 11-yard run for a first down.

Chris Olave scores his first touchdown

Olave gives Saints fans a taste of what to expect when he lines up alongside him Michael Thomas and Jarvis Landry this autumn. The first-round pick connected with Ian Book on a 20-yard touchdown with 12 seconds left in the first half — his first in a Saints uniform.

Olave had just one catch for four yards last week, but had two in the first half of this one.

Patriots Quarterback Bailey Zappe made a dangerous throw rolling to his left, and Hayes read the pass to take the ball the other way and tie the game. Zappe hasn’t been so sharp in his second outing this preseason, the one in which Matt Patricia calls the plays.

Landing of Romeo Doubs

There’s a place for Doubs to earn snaps with the first team this year, and this Jordan Love touchdown shows why. Doubs came on with that impressive four-yard touchdown reception on Brian Allen to put the Packers up, 10-3, over the Saints in the second quarter. Love begins to trust the fourth-round rookie.

59-yard field goal Will Lutz

Lutz missed all of 2021 with a core muscle injury as the Saints missed his reliability in the kicking department. He certainly looked like his old self with that 59-yard field goal to close out the first quarter.

Just 13 of 23 for 50+ yards in his career, Lutz hitting that kick is very encouraging.

Romeo Doubs make his case to move up the depth chart

Doubs was one of the Packers quarterback’s young wide receivers Aaron Rodgers criticized during the week, so he was in the spotlight with the second team members participating in the majority of it. A 17-yard catch on the first drive on a throw from Jordan Love makes a big impression, even though Doubs failed to match a third pass earlier.

No longer a quarterback for the Saints, Hill focused on the tight end for the 2022 season. The No. 2 tight end at New Orleans, Hill made an early impact by catching a 10 assist meters of Ian Book. Hill adds an extra dimension to the Saints offense in his new role and can still play wide receiver and running back in short-range situations.

The Patriots averaged just 1.9 yards per game in the first quarter with just 21 yards on offense, but Nelson Agholor changed that with that 45-yard catch on an impressive throw from McJones. Going against a second-team defense or not is what Patriots fans want to see from their new offense.

New England scored a touchdown – a two-yard run from Ty Montgomery — three games later.
