If your team still has a Quarterback, you should be grateful. Brees, Roethlisberger, and Darnold join Foles on the list of significantly injured signal callers. Week 2 is always fun because of the stats that show how hard it is to make the Playoffs after starting 0-2 (although 2 teams did it last season). We were 10-6 this week with the predictions, let’s look around the league.
Buccaneers 20 Panthers 14 – Jameis Winston had a decent game as the Bucs surprised the Panthers.Cam Newton lost his 8th straight start and the Panthers offense was worse this week than last. His outfits are also getting worse.
Cowboys 31 Redskins 21 – Dak Prescott proved again why he is deserving of a QB 1 contract. The Cowboys scored over 30 again and get the Dolphins next week. Adrian Peterson passed Jim Brown on the Rushing TD list.
Colts 19 Titans 17 – Jacoby Brissett only threw for 146 yards, but he tossed 3 touchdowns. The Colts are determined to not be an easy win even without Luck.
Seahawks 28 Steelers 26 – Ben Roethlisberger is done for the year. Mason Rudolph played well but Russell Wilson threw for 300 yards and 3 TDs.
Bills 28 Giants 14 – Eli Manning is done whether the Giants are ready to admit it or not. The Bills look like they have a solid defense and have taken care of the other New York teams to start the season.
Patriots 43 Dolphins 0 – Football fans worst fears were confirmed as Antonio Brown fit in with the offense right away. The Pats have a 76-3 advantage in the first 2 weeks while the Dolphins have been outscored 102-10.
Jaguars 12 Texans 13 – There were 12 punts and 3 field goals in the 1st 3 quarters. J.J. Watt picked up a fumble and Deshaun Watson ran it in for the first touchdown of the day. Gardner Minshew led a gutsy drive for a touchdown before Leonard Fournette’s run up the middle was stuffed.
Vikings 16 Packers 21 – Aaron Rodgers went 9-10 with 2 touchdowns in the 1st quarter as the Packers jumped out to a 21-0 lead. It looked like it was going to be a perfect passer rating day for Rodgers, but 21 was all the points they would score. The defense forced 4 turnovers in another solid game.
Chargers 10 Lions 13 – That’s another game where the Chargers are left with plenty of questions. The Lions have to feel good about that win despite being outplayed in a number of areas.
49ers 41 Bengals 17 – 572 yards of offense has the 49ers riding high. Jimmy G looks like a franchise QB so far as they tore through the Bucs and Bengals.
Cardinals 17 Ravens 23 – Lamar Jackson was great throwing and running the ball for the Ravens. Kyler Murray threw for a ton of yards but no touchdowns as the Cards couldn’t complete another comeback.
Chiefs 28 Raiders 10 – The Chiefs scored 28 points in the 2nd quarter as Patrick Mahomes led them to yet another win. Rookie Josh Jacobs ran for 99 yards.
Saints 9 Rams 27 – Drew Brees is hurt and may be out for six weeks. The Rams weren’t dominant, but they pulled away in the 2nd half.
Bears 16 Broncos 14 – Trubisky hit Allen Robinson for 25 yards to set up the game winning field goal by Eddie Pineiro. It doesn’t cure all of the Bears ills, but they will take it.
Eagles 20 Falcons 24 – SNF is officially back as we got a great game. Ryan threw 3 picks, but Julio Jones caught 2 TDs and is the all-time leader in receiving yards for the Falcons.
Browns 23 Jets 3 – Yikes. The Jets are on their 3rd QB and 4th kicker in week 2. The Browns had fun though as OBJ caught a slant and took it to the house for an 89-yard TD. Next week against the Rams will be a big test.
Week 3 picks
So far: 10-6
