NFL Week 2 Picks

Posted by

There is nothing better than week 1 of NFL football. Sundays can finally start to feel like Sundays again. The first week of fans back in the stands at their team’s home game was a beautiful sight to see. But thankfully, we have 16 more weeks to go. Let’s see what the second week of NFL football has to bring us.

Washington (0-1) vs. Giants (0-1)

The Ryan Fitzmagic season for Washington looks like it will be put on hold, as the QB went down with an injury in week 1 (Hip). Washington will have to rely on their defense and young studs such as Defensive Player of the year hopeful Chase Young and wideout Terry McLaurin. I still don’t see the loss of their QB1 giving many problems against Daniel Jones and his Giants team. Washington 24, Giants 10

Texans (1-0) vs. Browns (0-1)

Have we been mistaken by Tyrod Taylor’s production? I’m not saying he’s Deshaun Watson, but in his Texans debut, he looked sharp. The QB threw just under the 300-yard mark and tossed 2 TD’s against Urban Meyer’s Jags. The Browns played like a contender for the AFC title in week 1 against arguably the best team in the league. Coming off a gut-wrenching loss against KC last Sunday, I think Baker and the Browns will have a field day against this Texans team. Browns 45, Texans 23

Patriots (0-1) vs. Jets (0-1)

Jones and Wilson go at it as these rookies clash it out in this divisional matchup. The Jets are pretty much always the underdog, and this game won’t be a cinderella story. Patriots 31, Jets 13

Bills (0-1) vs. Dolphins (1-0)

Josh Allen and his Bills look to bounce back after a week 1 loss against the Steelers last week. The fins have a huge opportunity in week 2 to make some noise in the division early. While Flores and his Dolphins team have playoff aspirations, Buffalo will take this one in a shoot-out. Bills 31 vs. Dolphins 28

Broncos (1-0) vs. Jaguars (0-1)

Von Miller and the Broncos Defense gave Daniel Jones a tough time in week 1. The Jaguars started off the Urban Meyer/Trevor Lawrence era looking awful against one of the worst teams in the league. Trevor Lawerence is going to have a hard time against this Denver defense and is going to be scratching his head wondering what went wrong. Broncos 24, Jaguars 6

49ers (1-0) vs. Eagles (1-0)

This matchup has the potential to be the game of the week. With Jalen Hurts still needing to prove himself, and the 49ers defense disappearing in the 4th quarter last week, this is an important game for both squads to get their season rolling in the right direction. Can this Eagles team make a playoff push? Or are we going to see a typical NFC East this season? Eagles 27, 49ers 21

Rams (1-0) vs. Colts (0-1)

The Matthew Stafford era in LA was off to a hot start in week 1. Stafford continues to show off his playmaking abilities and displays that he is a top QB in the league. Indy had their struggles against Seattle in week 1. If Wentz doesn’t have guys protecting him, it’s is going to be a long year in Indianapolis. This will be more of a test for the Rams than Chicago was, but LA will have another good performance in week 2. Rams 31, Colts 17

Raiders (1-0) vs. Steelers (1-0)

Vegas is coming off a short week after their OT win against Baltimore last week. Big Ben and Najee Harris are looking to take a 2-0 start to their season. Will Pittsburgh have another undefeated run this year? We’re taking our money to Vegas and saying yes. Steelers 28, Raiders 16

Bengals (1-0) vs. Bears (0-1)

As long as this Chicago team has the QB1 debate in the air, the Bears are going to struggle. While Fields should get his shot this week, we will see Andy Dalton go up against his former Cincinnati team. Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase get ready to shock the league and be a surprise 2-0 squad. The Bengals won’t need OT this week. Bengals 27, Bears 23

Saints (1-0) vs. Panthers (1-0)

Do I need LASIK? Jameis Winston is coming off what we think was the most impressive week 1 performance. Sean Payton is still alive and well as the Saints absolutely embarrassed the Packers and Aaron Rodgers last week. The Panthers did not impress in the Sam Darnold era debut win against his former team. Jameis Will ball out again this week against their divisional foe. Saints 34, Panthers 21

Vikings (0-1) vs. Cardinals (1-0)

Kyler Murray opened the season showing that he is going to be an MVP of this league before long. Chandler Jones is on pace to have 10 sacks going into week 3. I could see this being one of those down to the wire afternoon games, but I think the Vikings will fall short in this duel. This updated Arizona defense is going to give Kirk and Dalvin some trouble this week. Cardinals 34, Viking 31

Falcons (0-1) vs. Buccaneers (1-0)

The Buccaneers played like last year’s Superbowl team and picked up right where they left off. The Falcons have a scary past with Tom Brady, and I don’t see this game being any different after they looked awful in their season opener against Philly. The Bucs take this one big. Buccaneers 35, Falcons 10

Cowboys (0-1) vs. Chargers (1-0)

Dallas is coming off a game where they looked incredible on offense. Justin Herbert played great last week in LA’s season opener against The Football Team. There were a lot of questions about Dak Prescott and if we would perform at an elite caliber level this season after last year’s injury. Dak answered those last week as he threw for over the 400-yard mark with 3 TD’s. This will be a shootout game, but Dallas will come out on top in this one. Cowboys 31, Chargers 27

Titans (0-1) vs. Seahawks (1-0)

Russell Wilson lead the way to a big opening win against Indy last week. Metcalf and Lockett were reliable as usual, and we see them being pretty consistent throughout the season. After the Titans offense was pretty much non-existent last week, Seattle shouldn’t have much problem with Tennesse in this one. Seahawks 27, Titans 17

Cheifs (1-0) vs. Ravens (0-1)

This is a fun young QB matchup that I always look forward to seeing. Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs come off a hard fought battle against the Browns last week. Lamar and his Ravens come off a hard-fought loss against Vegas on Monday Night Football. Tyreek Hill was 3 yards short of hitting the 200-yard mark receiving in week 1. This will be a fun matchup, watching two of the bright young stars in our league face off against each other. But Kansas City will light up this Baltimore defense in this Sunday Night showdown. Chiefs 34, Ravens 24

Lions (0-1) vs Packers (0-1)

Green Bay is coming into this game with a black eye from last week’s game against the Saints. Despite Detroit’s loss last week, Jared Goff really impressed in his Lions debut against San Fran. Goff led the Lions to a very impressive 4th quarter offensive performance in week 1. This could be a closer matchup than some may predict. Will Aaron Rodgers bounce back and lead the Cheeseheads to at least 1 TD this week? I think Green Bay takes this NFC North matchup, but it won’t be a cake-walk. Packers 30, Lions 24
