Sowing's Week 2 Picks

Went 10-6 last week, including correctly picking upsets for the Bengals, Steelers, and Saints. Here's Week 2. As always, list is comprised of recent/current digs.
1Other Lives
For Their Love

Giants 20, Football Team 17 - You can always count on NFC East rivalry games being physical and ugly, and this will feature a lot of both (especially the ugly part). WFT just lost their starting QB, I think the Giants can squeak out a road win on a short week as they finally remove the leash from Saquon.
2Trophy Scars
Astral Pariah

Jets 21, Patriots 20 - The Jets showed grit against the Panthers, and Zach Wilson did pretty good for being under constant duress. Things won't get easier against the Patriots defense, but I expect the NYJ to hang around. Zach Wilson looks the part of the next QB phenom, and I think he'll make a few wild throws down the stretch to pull off a huge upset.
3Sleigh Bells

Broncos 27, Jaguars 13 - The Jaguars made the Texans look good, which is the worst insult I can think of for any NFL team at the moment. On the other hand, Denver's defense looked as good as advertised, and Teddy Bridgewater is the steady hand and game manager that their offense needs. Broncos coast to a comfortable win.

Bills 30, Dolphins 24 - It's never fun to get pitted against a superbowl contender a week after they get embarrassed, but Miami is a really good team in their own right. The Bills should bounce back with a win, but it won't come easy.
5Honey Harper

Eagles 28, 49ers 23 - In preseason, I would have predicted a blowout victory in favor of SF. But oh, how one week can change things. The Eagles are fresh off a blowout road win over Atlanta, and I see them at least hanging with the 49ers. Call it a gut pick, but I think the Eagles win at home on the legs of Jalen Hurts.
Among The Ghosts

Rams 27, Colts 20 - The Colts played a decent game against Seattle, but Carson Wentz still looked like Carson Wentz: good, but not a difference maker. On the other hand, Stafford looked the part of LA's savior. IND will lean heavily on the run to control the clock, but LA will pull this one out.
7Gregory Alan Isakov
This Empty Northern Hemisphere

Steelers 31, Raiders 23 - I was right when I said people were overlooking the Steelers against the Bills. Now they get the Raiders, a far less frightening opponent even if they did just upset the Ravens. I think Najee Harris will get going this game, opening up PIT's offense. This won't be as close as the score indicates, LV will get a garbage time TD late in the 4th.

Bears 24, Bengals 21 - This is an interesting matchup no matter who starts at QB for the Bears. On the one hand, I think Fields would allow CHI to take off and become a playoff contender. On the other hand, it'd be fun to watch Andy Dalton go against his old team. The Bengals are a sneaky good team, but I have a feeling the Bears will best them at home regardless of who is under center.
9Jon Foreman

Browns 38, Texans 14 - What we saw in Houston week 1 was an apparition; this Texans team might have some core talent but their domination of JAX was both a fluke and an indictment of how bad that team is. The Browns are a totally different animal, and this won't even be close.
10Jon Foreman

Panthers 27, Saints 24 - Call it a homer pick if you want, but I still feel like the Panthers are a dark horse. There are red flags: like the fact that they struggled to close out the Jets and that the offense played streaky all game long. But that defense is young, fast, and aggressive. I admire Jameis Winston's week 1 performance (and I called it!), but he's still Jameis - which means he's bound to fall back to earth with a slew of turnovers. Can the Saints overcome that against a surprisingly good defense and a team that can just have McCaffrey touch the ball 30 times when all else fails? I'm calling the upset.
11Jon Foreman

Cardinals 32, Vikings 27 - I wasn't surprised that the Cardinals beat the Titans, but I was surprised by how easily they did it. I don't expect that sort of domination from this team weekly, but I do think they'll outclass a Vikings team that just lost to the Bengals.
12Jon Foreman

Buccaneers 34, Falcons 17 - The Falcons looked abysmal against the Eagles on both sides of the ball, now they get the defending superbowl champs and the GOAT. Good luck with that.

Seahawks 28, Titans 24 - It's strange to think that the Titans could be staring down an 0-2 record, but kicking things off against the Cards and Seahawks isn't the easiest task. The Titans looked a bit lost against the Cardinals, now they face a similar QB and head on the road to one of the toughest places to play. They'll play better this week no doubt, but I have a feeling it still won't be enough. Wilson has a knack for pulling rabbits out of hats, and that'll happen again in the 4th quarter to secure a 2-0 start for Seattle and an 0-2 start for Tennessee.
[untitled] e.p.

Chargers 30, Cowboys 26 - The Cowboys opening schedule is brutal. After getting sliced and diced by Brady on the road, they now have to travel to LA to face Herbert and the upstart Chargers. This should be a shootout and either team could prevail, but I think LA has the edge here.
Halo of Hurt

Chiefs 33, Ravens 24 - The Ravens defense looked suspect against the Raiders, which doesn't bode well with Mahomes coming to town. The Ravens have historically struggled against Mahomes (who hasn't, tbh), but now they're banged up and facing some questions sitting at 0-1.
16Brand New
Science Fiction

Packers 34, Lions 20 - Is it sad that I had to think about this for a minute? Yeah the Lions dropped 33 on SF, but it came primarily in garbage time. Also, Rodgers was just humiliated and now has a chip on his shoulder. Yeah, the Packers will win this one.
