Minnesota Vikings VS Philadelphia Eagles (Thursday, 8:20pm EST)

Pick: Philadelphia Eagles 24-21


Pick: Philadelphia Eagles 28-13


Pick: Philadelphia Eagles 35-10

Reason: Am I upset about the Vikings performance last week? You bet I am. Is it going to get better in week two? Probably not.

Pick: Philadelphia Eagles 30-23

Reason: Hurts should have a good day versus the Vikings defense.

Pick: Minnesota Vikings 24-17

Reason: Jalen Hurts struggles again and JJ gets 3 TDs.

Pick: Philadelphia Eagles 34-24

Reason: Jalen Hurts and the Eagles bounce back here. The Vikings looked rough in week one.

Baltimore Ravens VS Cincinnati Bengals (Sunday, 1:00pm EST)

Pick: Cincinnati Bengals 27-24


Pick: Cincinnati Bengals 24-14


Pick: Cincinnati Bengals 28-24

Reason: The Bengals looked awful last week. I don't expect that to continue against the Ravens.

Pick: Cincinnati Bengals 27-23

Reason: Bengals looked off last week and Ravens didn’t look great either. Cincinnati avoid 0-2.

Pick: Cincinnati Bengals 27-21

Reason: Joe Burrow looks to forget about last week.

Pick: Cincinnati Bengals 37-28

Reason: Perfect spot for Joe Burrow and the Bengals to remind everyone of who they are.

Seattle Seahawks VS Detroit Lions (Sunday, 1:00pm EST)

Pick: Seattle Seahawks 24-17


Pick: Detroit Lions 24-17


Pick: Detroit Lions 17-14

Reason: The Lions are going to fight hard every game, especially in the home opener. Seattle looked weak against the Rams and will fall to 0-2.

Pick: Detroit Lions

Reason: Everything went wrong for Seattle last week and now they face a tough time in Detroit.

Pick: Detroit Lions 28-13

Reason: Lions beat down on the Seahawks and Geno throws 3 picks.

Pick: Detroit Lions 34-21

Reason: Lions are 13-4 ATS at home in the past two seasons.

Indianapolis Colts VS Houston Texans (Sunday, 1:00pm EST)

Pick: Houston Texans 13-10


Pick: Indianapolis Colts 24-3


Pick: Indianapolis Colts 21-17

Reason: The Colts were fun to watch in week one and I believe they have a better team than the Texans.

Pick: Indianapolis Colts 19-16

Reason: Colts looked good last week and Texans did not. This may be a tie like last year but a fun rookie duel.

Pick: Indianapolis Colts 35-14

Reason: Battle of the rookie QBs but AR shines in week two.

Pick: Indianapolis Colts 28-24

Reason: Colts QB Anthony Richardson is questionable for this matchup. I’m gonna assume that he plays and the Colts win this matchup.

Chicago Bears VS Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Sunday, 1:00pm EST)

Pick: Tampa Bay Buccaneers 21-20


Pick: Chicago Bears 24-21


Pick: Chicago Bears 21-20

Reason: The Bears got off to an awful start in Week One. I think they bounce back against the Bucs.

Pick: Tampa Bay Buccaneers 24-10

Reason: Are the Bears really bad and the Bucs really good? We find out this week in a must win for both teams.

Pick: Chicago Bears 24-13

Reason: Baker struggles while Fields and Moore go to work.

Pick: Tampa Bay Buccaneers 34-27

Reason: Bears looked rough in week one and the Bucs upset the Vikings.

Kansas City Chiefs VS Jacksonville Jaguars (Sunday, 1:00pm EST)

Pick: Kansas City Chiefs 31-28


Pick: Kansas City Chiefs 31-17


Pick: Kansas City Chiefs 28-21

Reason: The Chiefs are going to prove they're still a top team in the league.

Pick: Kansas City Chiefs 30-20

Reason: AFC divisional rematch from last year ends in the same story. Jaguars can’t sneak a win.

Pick: Kansas City Chiefs 35-31

Reason: Both teams go back and forth till the Chiefs get the ball with 1 minute left for the game winner.

Pick: Jacksonville Jaguars 31-27

Reason: The Chiefs and Jaguars both looked beatable in week one. Except one team won and the other didn’t. I’m not sure about the status of Travis Kelce and the KC wide receiver core looks horrid.

Green Bay Packers VS Atlanta Falcons (Sunday, 1:00pm EST)

Pick: Green Bay Packers 17-10


Pick: Green Bay Packers 20-7


Pick: Green Bay Packers 24-21

Reason: Few teams looked as cohesive in their opening game than the Green Bay Packers. They win a close one on the road.

Pick: Green Bay Packers 27-23

Reason: Love and Ridder duel but Packers defense gets the edge in a close one.

Pick: Green Bay Packers 31-17

Reason: Jordan Love shows the Falcons defense some love.

Pick: Green Bay Packers 27-24

Reason: These are very similar teams but I trust the Packers’ defense and coaching staff more. Packers leave Atlanta with a W.

Las Vegas Raiders VS Buffalo Bills (Sunday, 1:00pm EST)

Pick: Buffalo Bills 28-17


Pick: Las Vegas Raiders 17-14


Pick: Buffalo Bills 35-24

Reason: The Bills want to win the home opener. They roll past the Raiders.

Pick: Buffalo Bills 24-17

Reason: Bills will get back on track and Raiders can’t keep the magic forever.

Pick: Las Vegas Raiders 21-20

Reason: Close game that comes down to wire.

Pick: Buffalo Bills 31-17

Reason: Perfect bounce-back spot here. Bills win at home.

Los Angeles Chargers VS Tennessee Titans (Sunday, 1:00pm EST)

Pick: Tennessee Titans 28-27


Pick: Los Angeles Chargers 16-10


Pick: Los Angeles Chargers 38-13

Reason: The Chargers and Dolphins played arguably the best game of Week One. The L.A. offense rolls in this game.

Pick: Los Angeles Chargers 34-20

Reason: Both teams fell just short but if the Chargers start 0-2, their fans will start to panic. Vrabel is the better coach but LA has the better team.

Pick: Los Angeles Chargers 31-21

Reason: Derrick Henry has more yards than Tannehill but still lose.

Pick: Los Angeles Chargers 33-21

Reason: The Chargers are the better team. I hesitate because I like Vrabel, especially at home. Justin Herbert is so much better than Ryan Tannehill though.

San Francisco 49ers VS Los Angeles Rams (Sunday, 4:05pm EST)

Pick: Los Angeles Rams 17-13


Pick: San Francisco 49ers 34-13


Pick: San Francisco 49ers

Reason: As fun as the Rams win was last week, the 49ers are the better team.

Pick: San Francisco 49ers 34-27

Reason: It seems like no matter how good LA is, the 49ers seem to dominate and this doesn’t change this week.

Pick: San Francisco 49ers 20-14

Reason: Purdy and McCaffery rush for over 200 rush yards combined.

Pick: San Francisco 49ers 27-10

Reason: The 49ers looked like the best team in the NFL in week one. The Rams shocked the Seahawks in a week one upset. The 49ers will win this and cover easily.

New York Giants VS Arizona Cardinals (Sunday, 4:05pm EST)

Pick: New York Giants 27-10


Pick: New York Giants 14-10


Pick: New York Giants 28-7

Reason: The Giants get a big win over the terrible Arizona Cardinals.

Pick: New York Giants 24-17

Reason: The Giants looked like the 2021 team against the Cowboys. Is it panic time for the G-Men just yet or can they shake off last week?

Pick: New York Giants 20-7

Reason: Giants get some confidence after a week one beating.

Pick: New York Giants 27-20

Reason: The Giants looked like the worst team in the NFL last week. I still think they beat the Cardinals.

New York Jets VS Dallas Cowboys (Sunday, 4:25pm EST)

Pick: Dallas Cowboys 17-7


Pick: Dallas Cowboys 24-10


Pick: Dallas Cowboys 35-14

Reason: I'd be surprised if Zach Wilson has any time to throw. Cowboys win big

Pick: Dallas Cowboys 35-24

Reason: Life without Aaron Rodgers (again) starts against Dallas, who looked like the most complete team last week.

Pick: Dallas Cowboys 31-20

Reason: Cowboys dominate most of the game and Dalvin Cook scores his first touchdown.

Pick: Dallas Cowboys 21-10

Reason: This game will be very low-scoring with two of the best defenses in the NFL.

Washington Commanders VS Denver Broncos (Sunday, 4:25pm EST)

Pick: Denver Broncos 23-21


Pick: Washington Commanders 23-17


Pick: Denver Broncos 21-17

Reason: Denver should win at home against a confusing Commanders team.

Pick: Denver Broncos 23-20

Reason: Washington almost got embarrassed last week while the Broncos disappointed. Sean Peyton gets back to .500.

Pick: Denver Broncos 27-14

Reason: Russ cooks up his best meal as a Bronco.

Pick: Denver Broncos 31-24

Reason: Broncos country lets ride?? This will be Sam Howell’s first real test. I think Sean Payton and Russ squeak out a win at home.

Miami Dolphins VS New England Patriots (Sunday, 7:20pm EST)

Pick: New England Patriots 20-17


Pick: Miami Dolphins 34-10


Pick: Miami Dolphins 24-16

Reason: The Pats defense is able to slow down Tua, but it's not enough for the win.

Pick: Miami Dolphins 23-18

Reason: Tua has never lost to the Patriots and Miami starts 2-0 once again!

Pick: New England Patriots 28-24

Reason: Mac Jones goes off again and Boutte catches game winning TD with both feet inbounds.

Pick: Miami Dolphins 31-24

Reason: The Dolphins looked insanely explosive in week one against the Chargers. I think the Pats’ defense can keep this game close but eventually, the disparity of playmakers on the Dolphins will overcome the Pats. Tua extends his record of 4-0 against the Pats to 5-0.

New Orleans Saints VS Carolina Panthers (Monday, 7:15pm EST)

Pick: New Orleans Saints 27-17


Pick: New Orleans Saints 30-17


Pick: New Orleans Saints 21-14

Reason: Carolina still has a lot to prove before I consider picking them over the Saints.

Pick: New Orleans Saints 28-20

Reason: Derek Carr and the Saints barely beat the Titans and now hope to avoid Carr’s unlucky stat of potentially losing to 31 teams.

Pick: New Orleans Saints 28-13

Reason: Dereck Carr throws 4 TDS passes and 1 goes to Taysom Hill.

Pick: New Orleans Saints 24-10

Reason: I’m fading the Panthers here. Cam Jordan is going to disrupt Bryce Young. With the loss of Jaycee Horn, Chris Olave is in a prime position to have a big game.

Cleveland Browns VS Pittsburgh Steelers (Monday, 8:15pm EST)

Pick: Pittsburgh Steelers 17-13


Pick: Cleveland Browns 20-6


Pick: Pittsburgh Steelers 27-17

Reason: The Steelers come out victorious in an AFC North clash.

Pick: Cleveland Browns 29-24

Reason: I can’t see Pittsburgh starting 0-2, but the Browns are too good to pick against. Might regret this one.

Pick: Pittsburgh Steelers 24-10

Reason: Kenny Pickett hits Pickens twice for long touchdowns.

Pick: Pittsburgh Steelers 24-14

Reason: The Browns started off the season strong and the Steelers did the opposite. However, I think this is a bounce-back spot for the Steelers. The Steelers under Mike Tomlin are 10-2 after a loss by 20 points or more since 2007. They are also 20-0 in their last 20 home games on Monday Night Football.
