Week 2 couldn't have gone much better for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, as they handled business against the Chicago Bears to improve to 2-0.

Quarterback Baker Mayfield made the Bears defense look silly all afternoon, as they had a difficult time bringing him down on several occasions where it looked like he was dead in the water.

Tampa Bay sits atop the division tied with the New Orleans Saints, heading into a juicy Week 3 matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles. That game should tell us a whole lot about this Bucs team, no doubt.

After Week 2, Mayfield is garnering headlines as he's played well. But, is he the best quarterback in the NFC South at the moment? It's time for our Week 2 quarterback power rankings.

4. Bryce Young, Panthers

Monday night, rookie quarterback Bryce Young had some moments where he flashed. There were a few throws where you might have stopped and said, "Wow, this kid is going to be good." But, in the end, he's still a rookie, and in the end, the Panthers dropped to 0-2 on the year.

Young has engineered an offense that's put up just 27 total points in two weeks, and Week 1 was largely on his shoulders when the Panthers lost to the Falcons. His two interceptions were throws that shouldn't have happened, plain and simple.

Against the Saints, Carolina's offense struggled with penalties and less-than-ideal offensive line play, so that must be said to be fair to Young. But, his night ended with just 153 yards passing, one touchdown and a fumble lost.

Young did add 34 yards rushing, including an impressive 26-yard scramble. But, he still has a ways to go in the NFL. And, make no mistake, he'll get there.
