Predicting studs and duds for NFL Week 2

Predicting studs and duds for NFL Week 2 The 2019 NFL season kicked off in grand style, and Week 2 will be no different. Let’s take a peek at some players destined to shine and some who will lose their luster on game day. Stud: Lamar Jackson, quarterback, Baltimore Ravens Was it a fluke that Jackson absolutely annihilated the Miami Dolphins with a five-touchdown performance to launch off Week 1? It may have been. However, Jackson has an excellent chance to pile up some big numbers again when the Arizona Cardinals come to town. The Cardinals had no answers for stopping Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford, who threw for three touchdowns and 385 yards.

Three masked teens gunned down during failed home burglary near Atlanta© 11alive.com A homeowner gunned down three masked teens, at least one of them armed, near Atlanta on Monday during a failed robbery that could be an incident of "stand your ground" defense, authorities said.

A Georgia homeowner gunned down three masked teens, at least one of whom was armed, on Monday during a failed robbery that could be an incident of "stand your ground" defense, authorities said.

The three dead, boys 15, 16 and 16, were fatally shot at 4 a.m. outside a home on White Oak Court in Conyers, Georgia, about 30 miles east of Atlanta, according to Rockdale County Sheriff's deputies.

"It could be possibly a stand-your-ground type of case based on the preliminary (information) that we have learned so far," Rockdale County Sheriff Eric Levett said. "It's just a matter of verifying all the information we have."

Georgia is one of the states that have the so-called "stand your ground" protections on the books, which allow some room for deadly force in cases of self-defense.

Two of the boys died at a local hospital while the third was pronounced dead at the scene, officials said. The teens still had their masks on when first responders arrived.

"To this point, the investigation has revealed that the three now deceased individuals had their faces covered as they approached the residence and attempted to rob three individuals in the front yard," according to a statement by Deputy Lee Thomas.

"One of the attempted robbery suspects brandished a handgun and fired shots at the residents before one of the intended robbery victims returned fire."

When the gunfire erupted, neighbor Brian Jenkins said he hit the floor and then checked to see if his wife was OK.

"Upon finding out that she was fine, I heard a guy yelling for help, 'Help me, help me, I'm dying. I'm dying. Help me. Help,' " Jenkins told NBC affiliate WXIA in Atlanta.

None of the intended robbery targets were wounded, officials said.
