NFL Picks Week 2: King of the Hill, Top of the Heap

Week 1 is in the books and now we turn our attention to Week 2 of the 2013 NFL season.


Week 1 turned out quite well now, didn't it? Good guys 1-0, bad guys 0-3, now the Saints sit alone atop the NFC South. Can the Saints go "wire-to-wire?" Well, its way too early for that talk, so let's start with Week 2.

Last week I went 11-5

I told you so: Eagles over Redskins!

What do I know: Vikings over Lions?



Thursday, September 12th

Jets(1-0) at Patriots(1-0)

Thanks for the assist last week, Jets. I'd expect the Pats to be more disciplined than Tampa though.

Pick: Patriots


Sunday, September 15th - Early Games

Rams(1-0) at Falcons(0-1)

Steven Jackson gets reacquainted with his old friends, at their expense.

Pick: Atlanta


Chargers(0-1) at Eagles(1-0)

LeSean McCoy and the Eastern time zone should be the difference for Philly.

Pick: Eagles


Cowboys(1-0) at Chiefs(1-0)

I'm getting the sense that Andy Reid may have a few tricks left for his old rivals in Dallas.

Pick: Chiefs


Dolphins(1-0) at Colts(1-0)

Miami impressed defensively last week, but the competition just got better.

Pick: Colts


Titans(1-0) at Texans(1-0)

Houston will put the type of pressure on the Titans that Pittsburgh couldn't muster in Week 1.

Pick: Texans


Redskins(0-1) at Packers(0-1)

Green Bay should emerge victorious in a battle of two teams coming off of disappointing Week 1 losses.

Pick: Packers


Browns(0-1) at Ravens(0-1)

Baltimore should rebound from their second half collapse in Denver.

Pick: Ravens


Panthers(0-1) at Bills(0-1)

EJ Manuel vs Cam Newton should make for an interesting matchup.

Pick: Panthers


Vikings(0-1) at Bears(1-0)

Adrian Peterson looks to rebound and lead the way against the Chicago defense.

Pick: Vikings


Sunday, September 15th - Late Games

Lions(1-0) at Cardinals(0-1)

Larry Fitzgerald vs Calvin Johnson. Awesome.

Pick: Cardinals


Jaguars(0-1) at Raiders(0-1)

Week 2 edition of the "Johnny Footbowl", Raiders should roll at home though.

Pick: Raiders


Broncos(1-0) at Giants(0-1)

Although the Giants have no ground game, I expect a surprisingly close game here.

Pick: Broncos


Saints(1-0) at Buccaneers(0-1)

The Saints are finally rid of Ronde Barber just to see him replaced with Darrelle Revis, great. The Saints should handle the Bucs in front of their rollicking crowd of roughly 320 people.

Pick: Saints


Sunday Night Football

49ers(1-0) at Seahawks(1-0) - Game of the Week

I don't expect the blowout we saw late last season, but homefield advantage will be a big factor for Seattle. Also, Colin Kaepernick won't put up 400+ passing yards on this defense.

Pick: Seahawks


Monday, September 16th - Monday Night Football

Steelers(0-1) at Bengals(0-1)

Bengals rebound from Week 1 loss by catching a depleted Steeler team at home.

Pick: Bengals
