Who would have thought this would be a battle of running backs Daryl Richardson and Michael Bush? Not me. If neither Matt Forte or Steven Jackson plays, it’s a big hit to both offenses, obviously. The Rams are playing pretty good football as of late, but this game is in Chicago.
PICK: CHICAGO BEARS
Both teams are on the rise after their performances last week, and the Browns are still looking for their first win of the season. I think Buffalo’s defense and special teams will be the difference here.
PICK: BUFFALO BILLS
The Bucs just don’t inspire enough confidence for me just yet. I still think the Cowboys are a potentially elite team, and they’ll bounce back at home after a big road loss.
PICK: DALLAS COWBOYS
The Titans look like they could take a while to mesh. I think the Lions bounce back after a tough loss to the 49ers last weekend.
PICK: DETROIT LIONS
Both teams are going to be picking in the top 15 in next year’s draft, likely, but I think the Colts match last season’s win total this week against the Jags.
PICK: INDIANAPOLIS COLTS
I don’t know what to make of this game. Both teams have had dominant performances, and both teams have gotten crushed. Call it a tie?
PICK: NEW YORK JETS
The Niners are dominating everyone they play. The Vikes will be pumped up, but definitely overmatched.
PICK: SAN FRANCICSO 49ERS
Both teams are 0-2. That’s pretty crazy in itself. I think New Orleans gets off the schnide this week.
PICK: NEW ORLEANS SAINTS
This is another tough game to pick. I really like RG3, but that Skins defense is going to have a tough road ahead without Brian Orakpo and Adam Carriker.
PICK: CINCINNATI BENGALS
Who would have thought after the first two weeks that both these teams would be 2-0? Not me.
PICK: PHILADELPHIA EAGLES
This is close to being the game of the week. Atlanta is hard to stop right now, especially if their defense plays like it did against Denver.
PICK: ATLANTA FALCONS
The Raiders are simply too banged up at this point. I don’t think they have a shot here, but just when you start to think that about the Raiders, they go ahead and shock you.
PICK: PITTSBURGH STEELERS
THe Texans are just rolling through their first couple of games, and Denver’s had some up-and-down performances. I think that home field advantage is going to play in today.
PICK: DENVER BRONCOS
This is a tough, tough game to pick. The Ravens are nearly unbeatable at home, but how do you pick against Tom Brady? I don’t do things like that.
PICK: NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS
This is going to be a tough matchup for the Seahawks, but something gets into them when they play at home. I still like Rodgers and the crew.
PICK: GREEN BAY PACKERS
