Now that week 1 in the NFL is in the books, it is time to get prepared for week two. As in most situations every single year, there are some teams that begin off like a cannonball becoming shot out of a cannon, then coming crashing quickly back down to earth. On the other hand, there are teams tripped more than their shoelaces at the beginning line, then rapidly catch up to speed. Only time will inform this season who those teams are.
Last week, I went 11-five in my predictions. Since I didn’t make an official short article, I’ll recap my Week 1 predictions:
Giants more than Cowboys
Bears over Colts
Falcons more than Chiefs
Eagles more than Browns
Saints more than Redskins
Lions over Rams
Patriots over Titans
Bills more than Jets
Texans more than Dolphins
Seahawks more than Cardinals
49ers over Packers
Panthers more than Buccaneers
Broncos more than Steelers
Ravens more than Bengals
Chargers more than Raiders
Right here are my week 2 predictions:
Packers 31, Bears 27
In a very close game that could go either way, I feel the Packers will edge out the Bears. The Bears have enhanced in the offseason, but we need to see them beat a critical contender 1st, rather of a rebuilding Colts team.
Bills 31, Chiefs 29
Yet another extremely close game that could go either way. Last year, the Bills demolished the Chiefs 41-7 in the season opener, but that was last year. Each the Chiefs and the Bills lost convincingly to their week 1 opponents, and appear to redeem themselves in week two.
Saints 38, Panthers 20
Are the Saints 1 of the week 1 teams that tripped themselves up at the beginning line? That is extremely attainable. I see the Saints rebounding this week over the Panthers.
Bengals 30, Browns 19
Neither team looked good final week. The Bengals had the daunting activity of taking on the defending AFC North division champs, the Ravens on the road in Baltimore, and were beaten soundly in all three phases of the game. The Browns on the other hand were in “the battle of the interceptions” as Browns rookie QB Brandon Weeden and Eagles QB Mike Vick had 4 interceptions every single. I like the Bengals at property on this 1.
Vikings 27, Colts 23
Each the Colts and Vikings are rebuilding, so this is another game that could go either way.
Texans 31, Jaguars 13
Texans are proving that they are a leading contender in the AFC, whilst the Jaguars hired former Bills HC Mike Mularkey, who was not too long ago fired as the Falcons Offensive Coordinator (OC). Texans will prove to be also significantly for the Jaguars.
Raiders 20, Dolphins 12
Both the Raiders and Dolphins continue their HC and QB carousel. The Dolphins have lost also considerably in the offseason and look to have a single of the worst records in the NFL this year. Advantage: Raiders.
Patriots 40, Cardinals 13
The Patriots have arguably one of the greatest offenses in the NFL, which will prove to be as well a lot for the Cardinals on Sunday.
Giants 20, Buccaneers 17
The Giants look to rebound after finding beat by division rivals, the Cowboys in the season opener. Can the Bucs take benefit of the injuries to the Giants secondary? In a game that could go either way, I’m hunting for the defending Superbowl champs to rebound this week.
Ravens 41, Eagles 10
Anticipate a Baltimore beat down of epic proportions on Sunday. If Eagles fans had concerns about their team going into the season, they must be very concerned this Sunday. In a town that booed Santa Claus, anticipate Eagles fans to be calling for the whole coaching staff and Mike Vick to be fired!!
Cowboys 27, Seahawks 15
Are the Cowboys legit this year? For Cowboys owner Jerry Jones’ sake, they better be as Jones place a lot of resources into the team in the offseason.
Redskins 34, Rams 27
Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (RGIII) showed in week 1 that he was worth the very heavy investment the group put into him in this year’s draft. Are Rams fans going to be second guessing the trade with Redskins for RGIII? If Rams QB Sam Bradford doesn’t turn out to be a probowl player that leads the group to multiple playoff wins, then Rams fans will start off their grumbling.
Jets 27, Steelers 23
The key to this game will come down to whoever can get the most pressure on the opposing QB. I like the Jets in a close one.
Chargers 20, Titans 18
In a game that could go either way, I see the Chargers squeaking by on this a single.
49ers 31, Lions 20
49ers look to be a single of the more dominating teams in the NFC this year. The 49ers currently beat the Lions division rivals the Packers in week 1, and appear to do the very same against them. I like the 49ers at property.
Falcons 31, Broncos 27
Each the Falcons and Broncos have produced substantial upgrades in the offseason. The Falcons hired Dirk Koetter as their OC, and Mike Nolan as their Defensive Coordinator. The Broncos acquired arguably 1 of the very best QB’s in the game this offseason, Peyton Manning. In a game that could go either way, I give the edge to the Falcons, only since of the limited quantity of time Manning has had so far with the Broncos. If this game took location towards the finish of the season, I would lean far more towards the Broncos.
