|Sowing's Week 2 Predictions|
Went 9-6 last week, 5-4 on upsets.
I once again missed the Thursday night game due to life happening, but oh well. Here's the rest of the picks!
The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me
Texans 23, Panthers 19 (Upset Pick): I don't think the Panthers' O-Line has Watt it takes to keep Newton upright against that front 7, especially on the road where it's bound to be noisy. Expect a defensive battle with a flurry of late touchdowns, the last of which will be a strike to DeAndre Hopkins for the win.
Steelers 31, 49ers 17: I'm calling the 49ers' week 1 dominance a fluke until they prove otherwise. The Steelers have one of the best offenses in football and face an early must-win game. 0-2 in Pittsburgh doesn't really fly.
|3||Godspeed You! Black Emperor|
Saints 33, Buccaneers 14: The Bucs looked truly awful at home against Tennessee. Now they go on the road to face Brees? No thanks.
Lions 27, Vikings 21 (Upset Pick): I like the Lions - and particularly Calvin Johnson - to rebound in this game, leaving the promising Vikings season in early jeopardy. I'd also like to apologize to Minnesota for drafting Adrian Peterson as my top overall fantasy pick, seeing as that is the most plausible explanation for his terrible week 1 outing. #ihavetheworstluck
Cardinals 24, Bears 17: The Bears gave the Packers a run for their money last week, and I think they'll do the same here. They simply don't match up well against Arizona though, and I'm projecting one of those dreaded turnover-filled afternoons by Jay Cutler.
Patriots 20, Bills 17: An upset pick is tempting here, but I like the experienced Patriots coaching staff and defense to edge an offense led by Tyrod Taylor.
|7||Tigers on Trains|
Bengals 30, Chargers 21: This could go either way, but I'll take the Bengals at home against a Gates-less San Diego.
Browns 23, Titans 17 (Upset Pick): Most rookie quarterbacks can't continually string together 4 TD outings. Even though Mariota is no typical rookie, I think Cleveland's defense shows him a thing or two that the pathetic Bucs didn't last week.
Giants 35, Falcons 31: There will be no shortage of offense in this one. Last team with the ball probably walks away with the W.
Rams 34, Redskins 0: Call it a hunch, I just see this being that once-a-year outing in which the Rams totally dominate a team and shut them out.
Dolphins 27, Jaguars 10: I expect huge games from Lamar Miller and Jordan Cameron in this one.
For Emma, Forever Ago
Ravens 31, Raiders 21: Flacco and co. get back on track against the league's laughing stock.
All We Love We Leave Behind
Eagles 38, Cowboys 27: I still think the Eagles are a championship caliber squad.
My Favourite Faded Fantasy
Colts 30, Jets 27: This will be much closer than most people think.
England Keep My Bones
Packers 27, Seahawks 20: The Packers are dying to avenge that NFC Championship loss, and Seattle is full of question marks ranging from Kam Chancellor's holdout to Pete Carroll's questionable decision making.
