Week 2 NFL picks


My best guesses on who will win the Week 2 games in the NFL.

Now that we have seen what 30 of the NFL teams look like, it is time to start picking who I think will win every game.

Here I will put down who I think will win each game, and as we get deeper into the season I may even try to do point projections on ever game. Right now, I am saving that for Titans games only.

Now, let’s look at the slate of games:

More from Titans News

Houston Texans at Cincinnati Bengals: Bengals

-You can’t give up 10 sacks against Jacksonville and then expect everyone to believe in you next week. Not only that, but the only tight end they will have on the roster that has caught a TD pass in the NFL is J.J. Watt after a rash of injuries.

So you have a rookie QB making his first start on the road, on a short week, with a banged up ankle behind this offensive line. I can’t get behind that.

Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens: Ravens

-If Myles Garrett was healthy I might change this and I think it will be a close game. Having said that, I think the Ravens win a low scoring, boring affair.

Buffalo Bills at Carolina Panthers: Panthers

-The Bills struggled to topple a tanking New York Jets team, and I don’t really think they want to win that badly as an organization. They are dependent on LeShaun McCoy and the Panthers are going to do their best to take him away.

    -I think this is a good chance for the Cardinals to bounce back, and we could see back-to-back weeks where the Colts offense is outscored by the opposing team’s defense.

    Tennessee Titans at Jacksonville Jaguars: Titans 24-13

    -The best way to stop a good pass rush is with a great running attack. Tennessee is the 3rd best team in the league in rush yards per attempt, with at least 20 attempts. That is really impressive and I expect them to feed DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry in this game.

    Philadelphia Eagles at Kansas City Chiefs: KC

    -Andy Reid doesn’t lose when he has extra time to prepare and they get a young QB at home. It takes a great young QB to beat Reid at home in situations like that and while Wentz is promising I think he could struggle this week.

    New England Patriots at New Orleans Saints: Patriots

    -Andy Reid doesn’t lose with extra time and the Patriots don’t lose back-to-back games. After seeing the Saints struggle how can you think they can beat the Patriots who have two extra days of practice while the Saints are on a short week?

    Minnesota Vikings at Pittsburgh Steelers: Vikings

    -I’m going with an upset here because I think the Steelers are a poor matchup for the Vikings. The Steelers struggled against a Browns defense without its best player, meanwhile new CB Joe Haden gave up the most yards of any CB in the NFL last week.

    If Stefon Diggs can get matched up against him I think Bradford can have a great day through the air, and Dalvin Cook looks like he can make some splash plays.

    Chicago Bears at Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Bears

    -Back-to-back upsets here, people may not realize how good the Bears were last week. They held a healthy Falcons team to 23 points and had a great chance to beat them in the end.

    Meanwhile the Bucs are dealing with a tragedy in their state and they may suffer for it. On the field I don’t like the matchup of the Bucs OL vs the Bears DL if I am TB, and Winston under pressure can lead to some huge mistakes.

    Miami Dolphins at Los Angeles Chargers: Chargers

    -In the end I just think the Chargers are better at every position than the Dolphins except at maybe OL. Going on the road to play a team with that much talent at key positions is just too much.

    New York Jets at Oakland Raiders: Raiders

    -The Raiders are good, the Jets are not.

    Dallas Cowboys at Denver Broncos: Cowboys

    -The Broncos can win a fair amount of games if they can get to the QB and/or force him to throw it at their CBs. I don’t think that anyone can get a consistent pass rush on Dallas and they are happy dumping the ball off to Zeke, Jason Witten and Cole Beasley.

    Washington Redskins at Los Angeles Rams: Washington

    -Washington’s OL should be able to do a better job against the Rams pass rush than the Colts did. If they can, I think Cousins can pick the Rams secondary apart and the Redskins defense can eat Jared Goff alive.

    San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks: Seahawks

    -The 49ers on the road against this defense is going to be a nightmare for San Francisco. I could see this being a 30-6 type game.

    Green Bay Packers at Atlanta Falcons: Packers

    -The Packers just dealt with one of the best defenses in the NFL while the Falcons quietly struggled against a Bears team with clear holes. I think Aaron Rodgers makes a big statement here.

    Detroit Lions at New York Giants: Giants

    -This may be an upset, but if Odell Beckham plays I think Detroit is in for a terrible day. The Giants defense is nasty and they made it tough on Dallas on a night where the offense couldn’t get going.
