NFL Picks, Week 2

Thinking It Through

NFL Picks, Week 2

After week 1, I find myself trailing my Gazette colleague Ken Schott by two. Will I catch up this week? We'll see! 

As always, winning teams are in caps. 

And if you want to see Ken's picks, click here

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at CAROLINA PANTHERS - Both these teams are 0-1, but the Panthers looked a lot better than the Bucs last week. 

NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS at Miami Dolphins - New England sometimes struggles against Miami, but it's hard to see the Dolphins winning this one. 

Arizona Cardinals at BALTIMORE RAVENS - Ravens looked good against Miami, and I expect they'll look good against the Cardinals, too. 

San Francisco 49ers at CINCINNATI BENGALS - Bengals pick up their first win. 

LOS ANGELES CHARGERS at Detroit Lions - The Lions didn't exactly light the world on fire last week. They blew a big lead and saw what looked like an easy win evaporate into a tie. I don't know what will happen this week, but it's hard to have any confidence in Detroit after that. 

Minnesota Vikings at GREEN BAY PACKERS - Aaron Rodgers' comeback year? Sure, why not. 

Jacksonville Jaguars at HOUSTON TEXANS - I know nothing about these teams, this pick is based on the fact that the Texans are playing at home, and the Jaguars are not. 

BUFFALO BILLS at New York Giants - I don't think the Giants are going to be very good this year. 

SEATTLE SEAHAWKS at Pittsburgh Steelers - Steelers bounce back! 

Indianapolis Colts at TENNESSEE TITANS - Titans looked good in week one, while the Colts played better than I expected after the departure of Andrew Luck. 

DALLAS COWBOYS at Washington - Cowboys looked strong last week. 

Kansas City Chiefs at OAKLAND RAIDERS - OK, maybe the Raiders are better off without Antonio Brown. They certainly didn't seem bothered by his absence in week one ... 

Chicago Bears at DENVER BRONCOS - I don't know what to do here. Neither of these teams are off to an impressive start.

New Orleans Saints at LOS ANGELES RAMS - Could be an exciting match-up! 

PHILADELPHIA EAGLES at Atlanta Falcons - Falcons looked terrible last week. 

Cleveland Browns at NEW YORK JETS - Who knows.

Last week's results: 

Ken Schott: 11-4-1 

Me: 9-6-1
