Week 2 Picks- Previews and Predictions

Jim Harbaugh

With Week 1 in the books, Week 2 has arrived and there is lots to look forward to on Sunday. Last week in the NFL set many opening day records with five rookie quarterback starters, five teams going over the forty point mark and more replacement refs than ever before.

Thursday Night Football kicked off last night with the Chicago Bears on the road against the Green Bay Packers but it didn’t turn out to be the high-scoring game that many fans were predicting. The Packers got back to winning ways with a 23-10 victory after a dominant defensive performance that held the Bears offense to just 168 total yards.

Looking ahead to the rest of the action in Week 2 and there are plenty of exciting games to watch this Sunday. Ravens-Eagles, 49ers-Lions, and Jets-Steelers are just some of the standout games on show but there will be plenty of other matchups worth watching with fourteen games in total.

Here my picks for this weeks games.

Chiefs at Bills

Mario Williams

If your a fan of defensive football, don’t expect to see much of it in this game.

Prediction

Chiefs- Matt Cassel throws four touchdown passes.

Bills- C.J. Spiller has 100 rushing yards.

Pick

Chiefs Win

Saints at Panthers

Marques Colston

This NFC South clash will be high-scoring with plenty of points on the board.

Prediction

Saints- Drew Brees will have 50+ pass attempts.

Panthers- Cam Newton continues his sophomore slump with another two interceptions.

Pick

Saints Win

Browns at Bengals

Andy Dalton

Preview

These two AFC North teams won’t excite many fans in a low-scoring game.

Prediction

Bengals- A.J. Green is the only spark for the Bengals offense with two touchdowns.

Pick

Bengals Win

Vikings at Colts

Adrian Peterson

Preview

Andrew Luck will improve on a mixed debut against a poor Vikings defense.

Prediction

Colts- Luck shines at home with 300 passing yards and 3 touchdowns.

Pick

Colts Win

Texans at Jaguars

Andre Johnson

Preview

Even with Maurice Jones-Drew at running back, the Jags offense won’t put up much of a fight in this one.

Prediction

Texans- Andre Johnson goes over 100 receiving yards again.

Jags- Blaine Gabbert throws four interceptions.

Pick

Texans Win

Raiders at Dolphins

Ryan Tannehill

Preview

As long as the Raiders solved their long snapping issues, the should be favorites on the road vs the Dolphins.

Prediction

Raiders- Darren McFadden runs for 150 yards.

Dolphins- Ryan Tannehill will rush for 50 yards.

Pick

Cardinals at Patriots

Danny Woodhead

This is the prime candidate for blowout game of the week with the Pats likely to go over 30 points again.

Pats- Danny Woodhead have over 100 all-purpose yards.

Giants- Victor Cruz bounces back with 100 receiving yards and a touchdown.

Pick

Giants Win

Ravens at Eagles

Joe Flacco

Preview

This game will be a thriller with an overtime field goal making all the difference.

Eagles- LeSean McCoy gets more touches and has 150 total yards.

Pick

Ravens Win

Cowboys at Seahawks

Russell Wilson

Preview

The Seahawks are my upset pick this week with Russell Wilson getting his first home start.

Seahawks- Wilson puts on a solid performance with 200 passing yards and no interceptions.

Pick

Seahawks Win

Robert Griffin III is the star attraction going into St.Louis.

Rams- Sam Bradford has one of the worst receiving corps in the NFL and won’t throw for more than 200 yards.

Pick

Steelers- Mike Wallace has a big day on “Revis Island” with over 100 receiving yards.

Pick

Steelers Win
