Chicago Bears at
Green Bay Packers
Chicago 10
Green Bay 23
Big time NFC North battle at Lambeau. The Packers are coming off a tough loss, and the Bears looked great week 1. That being said, I see the Pack getting back on track this week. Thur, Sept 13 8:20pm NFLN
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at
New York Giants
Tampa Bay 34
New York 41
Both teams looked pretty bad last week, despite Tampa getting a victory. The G-Men should get to Josh Freeman and force mistakes. Giants will win this at home. Sun, Sept 16 1:00pm Fox
New Orleans Saints at
Carolina Panthers
New Orleans 27
Carolina 35
The Saints are coming off a bad loss to the Redskins, but their offense was on point. They should rip up the Panthers, but I do expect lots of points from both teams. Sun, Sept 16 1:00pm Fox
Arizona Cardinals at
New England Patriots
Arizona 20
New England 18
The Arizona QB carousel started early with John Skelton getting injured. Kolb takes the reigns against the Pats and it will be ugly. New England will win this easily. Sun, Sept 16 1:00pm Fox
Minnesota Vikings at
Indianapolis Colts
Minnesota 20
Indianapolis 23
Andrew Luck had a tough time in his debut, but still showed signs of promsie. The Vikings do have Adrian Peterson healthy, and he is a big difference maker. Vikings take this one. Sun, Sept 16 1:00pm Fox
Baltimore Ravens at
Philadelphia Eagles
Baltimore 23
Philadelphia 24
The Ravens were probably the most dominant team in week 1 dismantling the Bengals. The Eagles scored 17 points againt the Browns. Give me Baltimore. Sun, Sept 16 1:00pm CBS
Kansas City Chiefs at
Buffalo Bills
Kansas City 17
Buffalo 35
The Chiefs put up a valiant effort against the Falcons before Atlanta pulled away. The Bills "new improved defense" gave up 48 points to the Jets. With Fred Jackson down, the Bills are much weaker. KC will take down Buffalo. Sun, Sept 16 1:00pm CBS
Oakland Raiders at
Miami Dolphins
Oakland 13
Miami 35
Yikes! Do I have to pick someone in this? Ok, um, Raiders. Sun, Sept 16 1:00pm CBS
Cleveland Browns at
Cincinnati Bengals
Cleveland 27
Cincinnati 34
Oooof! Another lousy matchup. The Bengals at least have some weapons on offense, so I will take them. Sun, Sept 16 1:00pm CBS
Houston Texans at
Jacksonville Jaguars
Houston 27
Jacksonville 7
The Texans were hitting on all cylinders against the Phins this week and they will easily dispose of the Jags. Sun, Sept 16 1:00pm CBS
Dallas Cowboys at
Seattle Seahawks
Dallas 7
Seattle 27
Tony Romo looked great last week, and the Cowboys played a great game. They will head to a tough place to play this week in Seattle. The 12th man will be in full effect, but it won't be enough. Dallas takes it. Sun, Sept 16 4:05pm Fox
Washington Redskins at
St. Louis Rams
Washington 28
St. Louis 31
The RGIII Era began with a bang. The 'Skins offense looked fantastic. They will face a solid defense in the Rams, but I like Griffin on the turf. Give me Washington. Sun, Sept 16 4:05pm Fox
New York Jets at
Pittsburgh Steelers
New York 10
Pittsburgh 27
The Steelers are going into the game very angry, while the Jets are flying high after an amazing performance against Buffalo. I think this will be closer than people think, but I'll give the nod to the Steelers. The home crowd will be fierce. Sun, Sept 16 4:15pm CBS
Tennessee Titans at
San Diego Chargers
Tennessee 10
San Diego 38
Another "eh" matchup this week. The Titans really showed me nothing this week. The Chargers were their usual inconsistant self, but they have the better QB and defense. I'll take San Diego. Sun, Sept 16 4:15pm CBS
Detroit Lions at
San Francisco 49ers
Detroit 19
San Francisco 27
This will be an interesting game. If you remember last season, there were some fireworks between the coaches after last years game. Both of these teams will be up for this one. I'll take the Niners and their D in this one. Sun, Sept 16 8:20pm NBC
Denver Broncos at
Atlanta Falcons
Denver 21
Atlanta 27
Well, sure looks like Peyton Manning is back. So with that, I take Denver. Mon, Sept 17 8:30pm ESPN
