Week Two of the NFL Primetime schedule features two divisional games and a Monday night game featuring two NFC teams looking to improve on their 2015 records.

Rex Ryan and his Bufallo Bills faced off against the New York Jets in the Bills home opener. Bufallo fell 13-7 to the Baltimore Ravens in week one. The New York Jets lost a heart breaker to the Cincinnati Bengals 23-22. Rex Ryan swept his former team last season. In the season finale, the Bills eliminated the Jets from playoff contention, as the Jets were in a “win and you’re in” scenario.

The Sunday night showdown features the top two teams from the NFC North from a year ago. The Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings will play the first ever game in U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. The two teams split the series a year ago. The Packers won the Week 10 game with the Vikings winning the division championship game in Week 17.

On Monday Night Football, Carson Wentz makes his first road start. The Philadelphia Eagles travel to Soldier Field for a showdown with the Chicago Bears.
