Sowing's Week 2 Picks

Back at it this week to provide you with the cold hard facts. As always, list is digs. (Sowing's Record - Last week: 10-6 // Year: 10-6)
1Ruston Kelly

Browns 24, Bengals 16 - Joe Burrow looked the part of a first overall pick on that final drive, before Randy Bullock pissed away the comeback attempt with a missed chip shot. The Browns predictably got mauled against the Ravens, but I like them to bounce back in Week 2 against a rookie QB.
2Jimmy Eat World

Titans 27, Jaguars 13 - Give those scrappy Jags credit for upsetting the Colts last week. However, I'm still hesitant to become a believer in a team that simply lacks talent across the board. Minshew and Chark will hook up for another touchdown this week, but after that the Titans will manhandle them.
3Alex G
House Of Sugar

Buccaneers 34, Panthers 20 - Brady and co. will bounce back against a Panthers defense that couldn't stop a runny nose last week. Carolina has some offensive firepower that might keep this game from becoming a blowout, but this is Brady's revenge week.
In Cauda Venenum

Steelers 20, Broncos 13 - The Steelers' defense looked legit against what I was expecting to be a fairly dangerous Giants offense. The Broncos' offense isn't quite as potent, so I expect the Steelers to again hold their opponent to under 20 points, which should make victory attainable for Roethlisberger, Snell, and JuJu,
5Great Grandpa
Four of Arrows

Eagles 24, Rams 22 - The Eagles looked downright atrocious in their shocking loss to the Washington Football Team, when Wentz was sacked a whopping 8 times. The Rams have arguably equal or better pass rushers to that of Washington. Yet, something tells me the Eagles will rally here. It's easy to forget that they started off red-hot and went up 17-0 early last week. If they can adjust their protection a bit and even cut the number of sacks in half, they'll position themselves to at least make this a close tilt - which I expect this to be regardless of outcome.

49ers 26, Jets 20 - An underrated storyline here is the ageless Frank Gore playing against his former team, filling in as the starter for an injured Bell. I think the Jets will go out of there way to get him a goal line carry or two. San Fran "should" easily outclass New York, but don't underestimate the Jets' ability to keep things tight. Their rush defense is excellent, and that's the 49ers' strength. The stage is set for a closer than expected game - I won't go as far as predicting an upset, however.
Ode to Joy

Bills 24, Dolphins 17 - The Bills' defense is one of the best in the league this season, and they have the added benefit of kicking off 2020 with tilts against the Jets and Dolphins. The only way the Bills lose this game is if Josh Allen goes full drunken giraffe and turns the ball over three times. Otherwise, with a ball-control mentality on offense, the Bills should cruise to a comfortable but not overly impressive win.
Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost - Part 2

Vikings 30, Colts 24 - The Colts -3.5 line is somewhat surprising to me considering they just blew it against Jacksonville and now face a team that just put up 30+ against Green Bay. Both teams are coming off losses and will be desperate to avoid an 0-2 start. It should be a shootout, but I think the Vikings have more talent on both sides of the ball.
9Julia Holter

Packers 27, Lions 23 - The Packers are coming off a huge, high-scoring win over the Vikings while the Lions are fresh off blowing a big 4th quarter lead to the Bears. Logic suggests that the Lions might come out extra hungry, and the Packers could be sleeping on this game a bit. It has trap game written all over it, but I still think Green Bay comes away with the win.
10Antarctigo Vespucci
Love in the Time of E​-​Mail

Cowboys 31, Falcons 28 - Both of these teams can put up points, so I expect a shootout. Fantasy managers should feast in this game. The Falcons' defense is one of the worst in the league, which should help the Cowboys' offense atone for the meager 17 points they scored in Week 1. Cowboys win on a late field goal.
You Won't Get What You Want

Giants 24, Bears 23 - Trubisky had an impressive second half against the Lions and earned the right to temporarily silence doubts about his tenuous hold on the starting QB job. The Giants had the misfortune of playing the Steelers unreal defense week 1, and still fared okay, so I think they take a leap forward offensively in this one. This match is truly a toss-up, but I'm feeling the Giants.
12Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds

Cardinals 24, Football Team 20 - Washington's dramatic second half turnaround was the result of stout defense and careful offense. If they take that same approach here, they actually stand a chance to win again - their front 7 on defense is legitimately terrifying. I think Murray is more capable than Wentz of escaping pressure, which should alleviate some but not all of those concerns. The Cardinals will need to bring their A game to come out of this with a win.
13Marilyn Manson
We Are Chaos

Chiefs 37, Chargers 20 - The Chargers will feel the full effect of going from Joe Burrow to Patrick Mahomes as the Chiefs put up what has become a standard 35+ point effort. I don't think Tyrod Taylor will be able to keep up. Chiefs continue their easy stroll to start 2020.
14The Flaming Lips
American Head

Ravens 34, Texans 23 - The Ravens looked every bit the part of the team that went 14-2 last season. The Texans, on the other hand, appeared weaker sans Hopkins - and their defense is still just as porous. It won't be a total blowout, but the Ravens won't struggle to win this one either.

Seahawks 30, Patriots 22 - This is a weird game to predict because I'm still not sure how good the Patriots are. I accurately predicted that Belichick would shift to a run-dominant scheme, and I think Cam got off to a great start. Seattle is likely too much for this new-look Pats squad though - Russell Wilson absolutely lit up Atlanta and while New England's defense is much stronger, I don't think they will be able to limit him to the extent that they would need to (24 or less points) in order to prevail with their ball-control offense. Seattle starts 2-0 and hands Belichick his first loss A.B. (After Brady).
16Angel Olsen
All Mirrors

Raiders 30, Saints 27 - Here we GO. Now this is how you do an upset pick. I'm sure somewhere unclereich is cheering, or knocking on wood, but I stand by my dark horse team of 2020. The Saints are without Michael Thomas, and Brees is aging quickly. The Raiders are young and inexperienced, but they have some serious talent on offense. I like Josh Jacobs to rush for 100+ yards and 2 scores as Las Vegas keeps pace with Kansas City in the AFC West.
