NFL Week 2 Predictions

Week 1 saw new teammates gelling together, while others started the season off slow. As always, I always skip the Thursday night game, but congrats to Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Jets on a hard-fought win over the Bills. Last week, I picked 10/15 correctly. Here’s my Week 2 predictions:

1) Saints 31-34 Giants

Last year was a high-scoring affair. I expect the same again this year but with a different outcome

2) Titans 14-31 Lions

Marcus Mariota struggled to hold on to the football last week, where his new running back Demarco Murray impressed. Matt Stafford and a rejuvenated offence will be too strong.

3) Cowboys 20-14 Redskins

I’m focusing on my favourite rookie duo again this week. Zeke will break out for 100 yards in this game.

4) Chiefs 24-20 Texans

These two met in last year’s playoffs, with the Chiefs blowing Houston away. A closer affair this time, but with a similar outcome.

5) Dolphins 13-21 Patriots

Patriots had a great win over the Cardinals and Jimmy Garoppolo will continue this momentum, despite Gronk not playing.

6) Ravens 17-9 Browns

Not expecting a high-scoring affair. Browns already down without RG3.

7) 49ers 14-31 Panthers

Panthers will be too strong at home. More interested in the Niners quarterback off the field than the one on it.

8) Bengals 24-27 Steelers

Steelers to edge out the Bengals in a thriller. The best rivalry in the NFL right now.

9) Buccaneers 17-27 Cardinals

Cards will bounce back by picking off Jameis twice in this game.

10) Seahawks 10-13 Rams

Both offences seem to be down, which is why I have the Rams stealing it at the end.

11) Falcons 27-31 Raiders

Michael Crabtree to catch for over 100 yards in this one.

12) Jaguars 30-24 Chargers (OT)

My overtime pick of the week. Jags to pick off Rivers in overtime and score a pick six for the win.

13) Colts 17-20 Broncos

Broncos’ defense will rally and force 3 turnovers from Andrew Luck (2 picks and 1 fumble).

14) Packers 17-13 Vikings

Sam Bradford will make this game closer than Shaun Hill. Enough said.

15) Eagles 34-24 Bears

Carson Wentz will continue his strong start to the year, throwing 3 TDs. All three to Jordan Matthews. Kevin White will get his first score for the Bears as well.
