After Monday night’s doubleheader, only six NFL teams are undefeated. That would be the Buffalo Bills, Philadelphia Eagles, Kansas City Chiefs, Tampa Bay Bucs, Miami Dolphins and the New York Giants.

To break down the 2-0 teams and discuss which teams are real contenders, Locked On NFL insider, former NFL player and Super Bowl champion Isaiah Stanback joined Peter Bukowski on the Locked On Sports Today podcast Peter Bükowsky.

Which 2-0 teams is Stanback most looking forward to?

“The two teams I’m looking forward to the most are the Buffalo Bills and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers,” Stanback said. “The Buffalo Bills look like an unstoppable force. Josh Allen just throws that thing around, Leslie Frazier’s defense plays out the lights, they picked up right where they left off aside from the fact they picked up someone by the name of Von Miller so that defense is even better than the last year.”

“Then you go to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers,” Stanback continued. “Everyone is talking about Tom Brady and his wife and issues he has off the field and he missed 11 days of camp. But at the end of the day, it’s TB12 and it doesn’t matter how well he’s playing at the moment. It does. “No matter what he dealt with in the offseason and what injuries that attack had, as long as he’s on the field you have a chance. And as long as Todd Bowles’ defense is out there, they’re always in a position .” to win.”

The Bills and Bucs are, of course, the Vegas favorites when it comes to Super Bowl time. The Bills lead the NFL by +55 points, more than twice any other team.

But what about those surprising 2-0 teams like the Dolphins and the Giants? Is there a 2-0 team that Stanback isn’t buying yet?

“Obviously the one who jumps at me is the New York Giants,” Stanback said. “There are too many unknowns with this team. Not only do they have a new head coach and they seem to be doing well with Brian Daboll so far, but they still have Daniel Jones in the QB and as long as he’s their quarterback there will always be question marks. I think you still hold your breath every time Saquon Barkley touches the ball. I’m still not sure about them, they obviously have some wins early on. They have a chance to win 3-0 against a Dallas team without Dak, but I’m not convinced yet.

We’ll be down at least one undefeated team next Sunday when the Bills take on the Dolphins, who just beat the Ravens in Baltimore 42-38 with 569 yards and six touchdowns by Tua Tagovailoa plus over 360 combined yards from receivers Jaylen Waddle and defeated Tyreek Hills. Can Miami maintain this early success?

“We knew McDaniel would bring in a quality offense,” Stanback said. “Offensively, they have every weapon imaginable. They are undoubtedly the fastest team. Waddle and Tyreek Hill run circles around the guys… These guys are scoring left and right. While they’re beating the Baltimore Ravens and Bill Belichick’s Patriots, I’m just not convinced yet. They won’t be able to duel and win every week like they did in Week 2 against the Ravens. I’m not sure they will maintain that firepower. Is McDaniel reaching into his pocket too far too soon? At some point, Miami will face a defense.
