Jets at Patriots (Thursday 8:25pm)

Heavy rain expected, so expect a wet, soggy, slug-it-out affair in Foxboro. It'll be close for sure.
Winner: Patriots

Falcons at Ravens (Sunday 1pm)

Joe Flacco dreams of repeating his first 16 minutes from Tampa last Sunday. It won't be 5 TD's, but it'll be good enough.
Winner: Ravens

Vikings at Bills (Sunday 1pm)

Oh what might have been for these two teams.
Winner: Bills

Dolphins at Bears (Sunday 1pm)

At least the Dolphins won't have to be worried about getting duped again by Aaron Rodgers' fake spike.
Winner: Bears

Saints at Lions (Sunday 1pm)

Even without Megatron, the Lions should have enough against the underachieving road Saints.
Winner: Lions

Panthers at Packers (Sunday 1pm)

The biggest question mark is can the Packers get Eddie Lacy back on track?
Winner: Packers

Bengals at Colts (Sunday 1pm)

What has happened to the Bengals defense - MIA the past two weeks?! Andrew Luck won't help answer that this Sunday.
Winner: Colts

Browns at Jaguars (Sunday 1pm)

Suddenly, the Browns are favorites and an easy schedule on the forefront. How quickly things change in the NFL.
Winner: Browns

Seahawks at Rams (Sunday 1pm)

Seattle will not be happy going into this one.  Sorry St.Louis!
Winner: Seahawks

Titans at Redskins (Sunday 1pm)

A couple of weeks ago, Kirk Cousins was the golden child.  Now, there are Colt McCoy whispers.  At least, he'll get a reprieve with the Titans in town.
Winner: Redskins

Chiefs at Chargers (Sunday 4pm)

San Diego survived their trap game last week in Oakland.  Eyes should be wide open this week.
Winner: Chargers

Giants at Cowboys (Sunday 4:25pm)

When will the bottom fall out on the surprisingly 5-1 Cowboys? The wait continues...

Bears at Falcons (Sunday 1pm)

Home Sweet Dome for the Falcons.  Just in the nick of time.

Will there be a Sunday night hangover for Bengals from the drubbing at the hands of the Pats or was it a wake-up call?
Winner: Bengals

Steelers at Browns (Sunday 1pm)

The Steelers were lucky to fend off a furious Cleveland rally in week 1.  Browns have a little momentum after a 25-point comeback win in Tennessee last Sunday.

Everyone wants to pick the Cowboys against Seattle on a short week and a 3,000 trip back home.  Not us!

Could be a good time for LeSean McCoy to get his mo-jo back after a rather improving Giants team.
Winner: Eagles

Vikings at Packers (Thursday 8:25pm)
Looks like no Teddy Bridgewater for the Vikes.  Packers offense looks to be headed in the right direction, which is bad news for Minnesota.
Winner: Packers

Bears at Panthers (Sunday 1pm)

This could be a cure-all game for the Bears after a turnover-filled loss to the Packers last Sunday.
Winner: Bears

Browns at Titans (Sunday 1pm)

The Titans have the 3rd worst point differential in the NFL (-50). It'll get worse after this one.

Baltimore's past meet's Baltimore's present.  The Colts just aren't that good.
Winner: Ravens

Steelers at Jaguars (Sunday 1pm)

Thank you NFL, says Steelers Nation.

Chiefs at 49ers (Sunday 4:25pm)

Giants at Redskins (Thursday 8:25pm)
The Giants offense has gotten better.  The question is whether the Redskins can continue to roll up over 400 yards a week against the Giants defense.
Winner: Redskins

Packers at Bears (Sunday 1pm)

How bad did the Green Bay offense look last week in Detroit? Just 7 points and a loss.
Winner: Bears

Bills at Texans (Sunday 1pm)

It's the Ryan Fitzpatrick reunion game.  Gifts will be INT's on both sides.
Winner: Texans

Titans at Colts (Sunday 1pm)

The Colts righted the ship last week in Jacksonville.  Now having said that, it was Jacksonville.
Winner: Colts

Panthers at Ravens (Sunday 1pm)

The Ravens continue the "us against the World tour."  So far, so good.  Plus, it doesn't hurt that former Panther now Raven Steve Smith wants revenge at any cost!
Winner: Ravens

Lions at Jets (Sunday 1pm)

All signs point to a Detroit win right? Well, you know when that happens, run the other way.
Winner: Jets

Buccaneers at Steelers (Sunday 1pm)

The aging Steelers defense should be licking their chops over this one.
Winner: Steelers

Dolphins at Raiders (Sunday 1pm)

The Dolphins don't want to commit to a QB.  The Raiders are banged up and playing a home game 5,345 miles from home in London.
Winner: Dolphins

Jaguars at Chargers (Sunday 4pm)

They may have to throw the ball 50 times without Danny Woodhead and Ryan Mathews, but that shouldn't be a problem for Philip Rivers as he faces Blake Bortles in his first NFL start.
Winner: Chargers

Eagles at 49ers (Sunday 4:25pm)

The Eagles mentality of coming from behind to win again will be tested against the suddenly offensively-challenged Niners.

Winner: Cowboys

Buccaneers at Falcons (Thursday 8:30pm)
Things should be a bit easier for Falcons after facing the Saints and Bengals to start the season. The Bucs, no without Doug Martin, have lost to two backup QB's at home.
Winner: Falcons

Raiders at Patriots (Sunday 1pm)

The Raiders look more lost than the Patriots looked in the second half in Miami week 1. Time to get that offense fixed Tom Brady!
Winner: Patriots

Chargers at Bills (Sunday 1pm)

How good to Phillip Rivers look against the Seahawks last week? We should know if the Bills are for real after this one.
Winner: Chargers

Cowboys at Rams (Sunday 1pm)

Raise your hand if you can figure out either of these two teams after two weeks.
Winner: Cowboys

Redskins at Eagles (Sunday 1pm)

No RG3, no problem for Redskins. Kirk Cousins will do just fine, but can they keep up with the Eagles who are just crushing in the 2nd half.
Winner: Eagles

Texans at Giants (Sunday 1pm)

Simply put, neither team is as good or bad as they've shown so far this season.  This is the definition of trap game.
Winner: Giants

Vikings at Saints (Sunday 1pm)

The Vikings (sans Adrian Peterson) are just what the doctor ordered for the 0-2 Saints.
Winner: Saints

Titans at Bengals (Sunday 1pm)

How disappointing were the Titans in a 26-10 home loss to Dallas? Bengals keep rollin' rollin' rollin'!
Winner: Bengals

Ravens at Browns (Sunday 1pm)

Quite possibly, the toughest pick of the week.
Winner: Browns

Packers at Lions (Sunday 1pm)

After facing the Seahawks and Jets front lines in the first two weeks, this will seem like summer vacation for Aaron Rodgers.
Winner: Packers

Colts at Jaguars (Sunday 1pm)

Must win for both.  OK, really just for the Colts since we know Jaguars are playing for 2015.
Winner: Colts

49ers at Cardinals (Sunday 4pm)

If Carson Palmer plays, it might be different, but it doesn't look that way.
Winner: 49ers

Broncos at Seahawks (Sunday 4:25pm)

Tough spot for the Broncos. Super Bowl rematch (a game they lost by 35 points) in hostile territory after the Hawks lost in San Diego last week.
Winner: Seahawks

Chiefs at Dolphins (Sunday 4:25pm)

The freefall continues for the Chiefs.
Winner: Dolphins

Steelers at Panthers (Sunday 8:30pm)

Can the aging Steelers keep Cam Newton in check?
Winner: Panthers

Bears at Jets (Sunday 8:30pm)

Primetime spot #2 after a huge comeback for the Bears in SF last Sunday night.  It won't be easy, but the Jets shouldn't have the firepower to keep up.
Winner: Bears

Last week: 6-9
Season: 17-14
