    Roethlisberger (elbow) completed 39 of 60 passes for 452 yards and three touchdowns and added a touchdown and nine yards on two carries during Sunday's 42-37 loss to Kansas City.

    Analysis: Big Ben wasn't ready to call football a young man's game. After Kansas City's sophomore slinger Patrick Mahomes threw three touchdowns in the first quarter, Roethlisberger responded with three of his own in the second quarter. Roethlisberger also brought the game within a score late after lumbering to the right corner of the end zone for a three-yard touchdown run. Roethlisberger had an uncharacteristically rough game against Cleveland last week. Sunday was a rebound, but it's unlikely that he'll have a duel like he had against Mahomes very often this year.

    Mahomes racked up 326 yards and six touchdowns on 23 of 28 passing during Sunday's 42-37 win over the Steelers. He added 18 yards on five carries.

    Analysis: Mahomes started red hot, finding Chris Conley and Travis Kelce up the seams for two early touchdowns. He showed that he is human by slowing off that otherworldly pace a little bit as the game wore on, but Mahomes still looks like an absolute star to start his career. We're only two games in, but Mahomes' touchdown rate of 18.2 percent is over twice that of Carson Wentz's league-leading rate of 7.5 percent in 2017. Mahomes looks like he can only be contained, not stopped, in Andy Reid's offense.

    Diggs caught nine of 13 targets for 128 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 29-29 tie with the Packers. He also hauled in a two-point conversion.

    Analysis: After a relatively quiet start to the game, Diggs posted huge numbers in the fourth quarter to get his side back in it. He caught a three-yard touchdown pass to begin the period and later scored from 75 yards out to bring his team within two. Diggs then capped off the comeback with a catch for a two-point conversion to tie the score with just seconds left on the clock. He didn't enjoy his greatest performance Week 1, but this excellent showing gives him 12 catches (on 19 targets) for 171 yards and three touchdowns through two games. Diggs should be in for a big year with Kirk Cousins under center and will look to exploit a porous Bills defense this Sunday.

    Kelce snagged seven of 10 targets for 109 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 42-37 win over Pittsburgh.

    Analysis: Kelce fans can breathe a collective sigh of relief. Following a disappointing one-catch outing Week 1, Kelce hooked up with Patrick Mahomes for touchdowns of 19 and 25 yards, both coming up the seam. Kelce is among the best tight ends in the league in stretching the field vertically. Now equipped with a quarterback of Mahomes' arm strength, things can get ugly for opposing defenses. Expect to see more of Week 2 Kelce than Week 1 Kelce moving forward.

    Gurley played 49 of 72 offensive snaps during Sunday's 34-0 win against the Cardinals. In the process, he accounted for 19 carries for 42 yards and three touchdowns to go with three catches (on three targets) for 31 yards.

    Analysis: Gurley didn't have the most efficient game on the ground, averaging just 2.2 YPC, but he made up for it with three visits to the end zone. His final line was impacted by an early departure to deal with cramping, which allowed backup Malcolm Brown to post 12 rushes for 46 yards. With Gurley calling himself "fine" after the game, according to Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site, he'll take on lead duties, per usual, Sunday against the Chargers.
