NFL Week 2 Picks and Predictions
Updated: July 2018


NY Jets @ Buffalo
An AFC East clash on Thursday night starts the week. The Jets sacked Cincinnati QB Andy Dalton seven times in Week 1 but lost to the Bengals 23-22 on a late field goal. The Jets have not won in Ralph Wilson Stadium since 2011. In fact, they have only won once in the last seven tries. Time for a change… NY Jets 17, Bills 13.

Cincinnati @ Pittsburgh
It’s an early season AFC North battle in Pittsburgh. The Steelers swept the Bengals last year and have won 10 of the last 13. The winner will hold the upper hand in the division. The passing combination of QB Ben Roethlisberger and WR Antonio Brown may be the best in football…Pittsburgh 33, Cincinnati 28.

Tennessee @ Detroit
The Lions surprised some people with a Week 1 win over Indianapolis. The last time Detroit beat the Titans was, well, never but they did beat the franchise when it was known as the Houston Oilers. Detroit beat the Oilers in 1995 at the Houston Astrodome. This time around, it should be a high scoring affair. The Lions have QB Matthew Stafford, who threw for 340 yards against the Colts, and the Titans have a strong backfield with running backs DeMarco Murray and rookie Derrick Henry. Lions get surprised this time… Tennessee 31, Detroit 30.

Baltimore @ Cleveland
Since 2008, the Browns have beaten their AFC rival Baltimore just twice. One of those victories came last year, a 33-30 overtime win at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. The Ravens held last year’s best rushing offense to just 65 yards on the ground and seven points. Cleveland’s offense isn’t nearly as good. While the two teams have played some close games recently, this one could be ugly… Baltimore 27, Cleveland 7.

Dallas @ Washington
Sticking to Week 2’s theme of division rivalries, the Tony Romo-less Cowboys head to the nation’s capital to face the Redskins. Washington has not beaten Dallas at home since 2012. The Redskins did beat Dallas, 34-23, in last season’s regular season finale to win the NFC East. Can Dallas win with rookie Dak Prescott at quarterback? They lost to the Giants, 20-19, in Week 1. Chalk up another loss for America’s team… Washington 24, Dallas 17.

New Orleans @ NY Giants
In last season’s meeting, the Giants squandered two late touchdowns as they lost on a last-second field goal, 52-49. Drew Brees threw seven touchdown passes and Eli Manning six in the high-scoring affair. Expect more of the same in 2016. Brees threw for 423 in the Saints opener, a 35-34 loss to Oakland. New Orleans loses another close one in Week 2… NY Giants 38, New Orleans 37.

San Francisco @ Carolina
Panthers QB Cam Newton had to deal with the Denver defense in Week 1. The 49ers aren’t as skilled as the Broncos and Newton will make them pay. San Francisco won the last time the two teams played in 2014. Prior to that, Carolina won four in a row. It’s a different time these days. The Panthers are an NFL power. The 49ers are getting used to new head coach Chip Kelly… Carolina 38, San Francisco 14.

Miami @ New England
The Dolphins, surprisingly, have won three of the last five against New England. What they have not done recently though is win at Gillette Stadium. Miami has not beaten the Patriots in Foxborough since 2008. Miami led Seattle late in their Week 1 game but gave up a late touchdown to lose in new head coach Adam Gase’s NFL debut. The Patriots took care of business with Jimmy Garoppolo subbing for the suspended Tom Brady at quarterback. Expect it to happen again on Sunday… New England 28, Miami 14.

Kansas City @ Houston
New Houston QB Brock Osweiler was impressive in his debut with the team last week. He connected on 22-of-35 passes for 231 yards and two touchdowns. RB Lamar Miller ran for 108 yards and the Texans defense produced five sacks. This year should be a lot different than 2015’s meeting when the Chiefs won 30-0… Houston 27, Kansas City 20.

Seattle @ Los Angeles
The Seahawks defense is still one of the best. They held Miami to just 10 points in Week 1. The Rams will counter with RB Todd Gurley and a pretty good defense of their own featuring the likes of All-Pro DT Aaron Donald. The Rams have actually swept the season series last year. Don’t expect that to happen again in 2016… Seattle 17, Los Angeles 10.

Tampa Bay @ Arizona
Jameis Winston started off his second season with a four-touchdown performance against the Falcons in a 31-24 win. Arizona dropped a close one to New England. The two teams have played seven times since 1992. Each game has been determined by less than a touchdown. Arizona won’t lose two in a row at home to start the season… Arizona 33, Tampa Bay 30.

Jacksonville @ San Diego
The Jags surprised Green Bay somewhat in Week 1 but still could not come up with a win. QB Blake Bortles and receivers Allen Hurns and Allen Robinson make the Jacksonville offense go. The Jags have never won in San Diego. Chargers WR Keenan Allen will miss the season with a knee injury. Given they are playing at home, they get a slight edge… San Diego 28, Jacksonville 27.

Atlanta @ Oakland
Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio played to win last week going for two in the final minute of play to give Oakland a 35-34 win over the Saints in New Orleans. Oakland hasn’t beaten Atlanta since that famed George Bush Jr.-Al Gore election of 2000. The Raiders are solid on defense with DE Khalil Mack and QB Derek Carr to WR Amari Cooper is going to become one of league’s top threats… Oakland 31, Atlanta 28.

Indianapolis @ Denver
The Colts and Broncos have met ten times since January of 2005. Two of those meetings have come in the postseason. Surprisingly, it is Indianapolis that holds a 7-3 advantage, including six straight wins between 2005 and 2013. Last year, the then 4-5 Colts upset the 7-1 Broncos, 27-24. Denver has found a new QB in Trevor Siemian and the Broncos defense is as good as ever. Andrew Luck was impressive in Week 1 (385 yards, 4 TDs). Will the Colts continue their dominance? Not likely… Denver 24, Indianapolis 17.

Green Bay @ Minnesota
The Packers have won three of the last four games in this historic series. That includes two wins at TCF Bank Stadium where the two teams will play on Sunday night. Both teams won in Week 1, but it is unlikely that Minnesota’s defense will score twice again this week. The Vikings offense was unimpressive, as expected without starting QB Teddy Bridgewater, in their 25-16 win over Tennessee… Green Bay 28, Minnesota 17.

Philadelphia @ Chicago
The Eagles and Bears haven’t met since 2013 when Philadelphia put a serious hurting on Chicago. The Eagles won 54-11, but the names have changed this time around. Philadelphia has a new head coach in Doug Pederson and a rookie quarterback in Carson Wentz. They beat Cleveland 29-10 last week, while the Bears allowed their QB, Jay Cutler, to get sacked five times in a 23-14 loss to Houston. At Soldier Field on Monday night, the Bears may play with more energy…
Chicago 24, Philadelphia 20.
