NFL Cheerleaders Preseason Week 2

NFL Cheerleaders Preseason Week 2

Week 2 of the NFL preseason is when things start to get good. The teams use their starters for a little while longer, and even the garbage time is filled with guys playing their hearts out trying to make teams.

Some of the teams looked good, and some of them didn't. Tom Brady and the New England Patriots put all doubts aside about his knee not being ready for the real games to start.

The Seattle Seahawks' defense and special teams units were dominant against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos, who moved the ball well but couldn’t stop turning it over. It's good that they got that kind of game out of the way in the preseason -- hopefully.

Michael Vick played well for the Philadelphia Eagles again, almost certainly cementing his spot as the starting quarterback in Philly. While the quarterback situation for the Eagles is coming into focus, it's getting more hazy than ever for the New York Jets.

Geno Smith was brutal in practice last week and didn't even play in their game against the Jacksonville Jaguars because of his injured ankle. The door was wide open for Mark Sanchez to regain his job, but of course Sanchez disappointed and failed to step up to the plate.

But most of the players on the field didn't disappoint this week, and neither did their cheerleaders. They were on top of their game, giving a regular-season performance in the preseason.

These women always step up to the plate when they have the chance.

The Jets may have won their game against the Jaguars, but if they don't find an answer at quarterback, even the cheerleaders are going to have a hard time finding things to smile about this year in the Big Apple.

The Arizona Cardinals brought in Carson Palmer to lead the offense this year, but they certainly don't lack for leadership on their cheerleading squad.
