We have already taken a look at Week 1 of the NFL season and made prediction, so we might as well head into Week 2. As mentioned in the previous piece, it is obviously way to early to be making these types of predictions, but it will be cool to look back and see how we made out once the games begin. As with Week 1, the picks here are all straight up, as we will save the other stuff for closer to the start of the season. Let’s get right into our Week 2 picks so you can get ready to bet against their NFL odds.
NFL Week 2 Picks: Early Predictions for Every Game
New York Giants at Washington Football Team – A huge early season divisional game here. I am taking Washington for the second straight week.
Cincinnati Bengals at Chicago Bears – It will be fun to see Andy Dalton line up against his former team, but I think he gets the last laugh with a Bears win.
Houston Texans at Cleveland Browns – It looks like a total shambles in Houston at the moment, so this should be a blowout win for the Browns.
LA Rams at Indianapolis Colts – This looks like an absolutely fantastic matchup and a tough one to pick. Leaning ever so slightly towards the Rams.
Buffalo Bills at Miami Dolphins – We have a few divisional games on tap this week and this is a good one. Should be another win for the Bills.
New England Patriots at New York Jets – The expectation is that both of these teams will be better this season, but I think the Patriots will be a little better in this one.
San Francisco 49ers at Philadelphia Eagles – I have already taken a few road teams in Week 2 and I’m doing it again here by picking the 49ers.
Las Vegas Raiders at Pittsburgh Steelers – The Steelers have made a lot of salary cap moves this offseason and will look different. I like them to win their home opener, though.
New Orleans Saints at Carolina Panthers – There may be no more Drew Brees, but the Saints still look stacked. This should be a win for New Orleans.
Denver Broncos at Jacksonville Jaguars – I had Trevor Lawrence and the Jags winning in Week 1, but I think they come back to earth this week.
Minnesota Vikings at Arizona Cardinals – I said it in Week 1, and I’ll say it again here. I think the Cardinals are a dark horse. I’m taking them in this one.
Atlanta Falcons at Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Another divisional game with this one and what looks to be a rather comfortable win for the Bucs.
Tennessee Titans at Seattle Seahawks – It’s always tough to win on the road in the NFL, but some places are tougher than others. I have the Seahawks winning at home.
Kansas City Chiefs at Baltimore Ravens – The Sunday night game is arguably the game of the week and a tough one to predict. Slight edge to the Chiefs.
Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers – The Monday night game is a whole lot easier to predict. The Packers win easily, with or without Rodgers.
