Week 2 NFL Picks

Last week I decided to go against 11 home teams, which ended up being a pretty bad idea.  How bad?  7 of my 8 losses were teams I had picked to win on the road.  Note to self: Don’t try that again.

Considering things went so poorly with my road warriors and I’m only sitting at a game under .500, we can consider that a victory.

Week 2 in the NFL doesn’t offer a whole lot of easy picks, but I’m confident that I can put up a 10 or 11 win batch.


Last Week: 7-8-1
Season: 7-8-1

Arizona at Atlanta (-7) – Falcons

Baltimore at Cincinnati (+3) – Ravens

Kansas City at Cleveland (-1.5) – Chiefs

Chicago at Dallas (-7.5) – Bears

Philadelphia at Detroit (+6) – Lions

Buffalo at Green Bay (-14) – Packers

Pittsburgh at Tennessee (-5.5) – Titans

Miami at Minnesota (-6) – Vikings

Tampa Bay at Carolina (-3.5) – Panthers

Seattle at Denver (-3.5) – Broncos

St. Louis at Oakland (-3.5) – Rams

New England at NY Jets (+3) – Patriots

Jacksonville at San Diego (-7) – Chargers

Houston at Washington (+3) – Redskins

NY Giants at Indianapolis (-6) – Colts

New Orleans at San Francisco (+6) – Saints

The tables are turned this week as I take 10 home teams.

It really is hard to feel comfortable about much early on this season.

I mean, Houston looked great running the ball against the Colts last week, but can then march into Washington and do the same thing against a Redskins team that didn’t allow a run over 12 yards last week?  Even if you think they can, it’s hard to give Washington a field goal at home.

Jacksonville is going cross country after a nice win against the Broncos to take on what will surely be a desperate Chargers team.  But San Diego didn’t look dominant Monday night and if you think that will be close, the Jaguars could still a game for you.

The schedule is full of those “makes me nervous” matchups.  But nervous or not, I am confident that I’ll endure for double digit wins.
