Last Week: 11-5 .688
Season Total: 11-5 .688
Falcons 23 Rams 20
In a match up of teams that won despite playing poorly in Week 1 look for the Falcons to take advantage of the home field and win in the final minutes.
Ravens 20 Steelers 17
The Ravens offense struggles again, but with a few key turnovers are able to win tie the game late winning in overtime, as the Steelers get the cover.
Lions 34 Texans 13
Coming off their first road win in over 3 years the Lions keep rolling by blowing out the Texans at home to improve to 2-0.
Packers 37 Bears 17
Sadly in recent years this rivalry has lost some of its luster as the Bears have not put up much of a fight. Looking for more of the same as the Packers win easy.
Jaguars 20 Broncos 16
Upset of the Week: The Jaguars quietly may have one of the best defenses in the league as they kept them in the game long enough for their last second win in Game 1. Look for them to steal another as they upset the Broncos in their home opener.
Chiefs 24 Panthers 17
In a battle of division winners trying to avoid a 0-2 start look for the Chiefs to use their home field advantage to even their record at 1-1.
Redskins 27 Giants 13
Look for Clinton Portis to run wild all day as the Giants continue to struggle, being blown out in their home opener while Coach Tom Coughlin fines contemplates fining fans who leave early.
Colts 38 Titans 17
Game of the Week: In a battle that could have an early say on who wins the AFC South look for the Colts to continue their recent dominance of the Titans by winning big as Peyton Manning has an MVP day with 4 Touchdown Passes.
Saints 24 49ers 7
After surviving Hurricane Ivan, New Orleans will have no problem beating the 49ers with former Hurricane Ken Dorsey as the 49ers fans continue to suffer a tropical depression over their team.
Buccaneers 17 Seahawks 13
The Buccaneers still have one of the best defenses in the NFL. Look for them to take advantage of a weary Seahawks team traveling cross-country for the 2nd straight week, that maybe be playing without star RB Shaun Alexander.
Patriots 27 Cardinals 13
As the NFL remembers Cardinals star Pat Tillman the Patriots and Cardinals combine for 40 points Tillman's number which the Cardinals will retire Sunday. Unfortunately 27 of them will be from the Pats.
Cowboys 24 Browns 20
The Browns got off to a solid start stunning the Ravens at home in Week 1. However on the road in Dallas they will have a much harder time look for the Cowboys to grab an early lead to hold off the Browns in their home opener.
Raiders 20 Bills 10
Last week the Raiders battled back from an early deficit only to lose on the final play while the Bills lost the game after having the lead the entire game. In Oakland the Bills hangover continues as the Raiders improve to 1-1.
Jets 24 Chargers 20
Last week both teams had solid wins, with the Jets Curtis Martin rushing for nearly 200 yards. Look for Martin to be the key again as the Jets will be flying high at 2-0.
Eagles 30 Vikings 24
Look for plenty of fireworks in a match up of two of the game's best QB-WR combo. However in the end the Eagles defense will hold the Vikings out of the endzone late as the Eagles get off to a 2-0 start.
Bengals 24 Dolphins 7
After being run over by Curtis Martin in Week 1 the Bengals defense takes on the Dolphins who continue to experiment without playing with an offense scoring just 1 late TD again while falling to 0-2.
