Last Week: 12 - 4.
Season: 22 - 10.
Not a bad week, with a two-game improvement over week 1. I made a big mistake in thinking that San Francisco could beat the best home team in the league, but other than that one, the other losses were pretty close and for the most part, mild upsets. In some other observations, the Redskins look pretty bad and need to make some big defensive adjustments heading into next week, although even at 0 -2, they aren't in terrible shape considering there are no 2 - 0 teams in the NFC East. I like what Andy Reid is doing in Kansas City with Alex Smith on offense and as well as how they're playing on the defensive side of the ball. And Miami appears to be able to challenge the Patriots in the AFC East if New England continues to have trouble finding consistent offensive weapons to support QB Tom Brady.
WEEK 2 PREDICTION RESULTS:
NEW ENGLAND 24 New York Jets 16: Correct. 13 - 10.
GREEN BAY 28 Washington 24: Correct. 38 - 20.
BALTIMORE 27 Cleveland 20: Correct. 14 - 6.
ATLANTA 27 St. Louis 24: Correct. 31 - 24.
PHILADELPHIA 38 San Diego 27: The Eagles need to shore up their defense in order to be successful this season, especially if they continue playing a hurry up style that gives their opponents the ball so many times during a game. NO. 30 - 33.
CHICAGO 27 Minnesota 21: Correct. 31 - 30.
BUFFALO 20 Carolina 24: This was really close, as I thought it would be. The Panthers are probably better than 0 - 2, but I doubt they have the talent to compete with Atlanta and New Orleans in the NFC South. NO. 24 - 23.
HOUSTON 27 Tennessee 21: Correct. 30 - 24.
INDIANAPOLIS 28 Miami 27: I was tempted to take the Dolphins, and probably should have. NO. 20 - 24.
KANSAS CITY 30 Dallas 27: Correct. 17 - `16.
TAMPA BAY 17 New Orleans 31: Correct. 16 - 14.
ARIZONA 27 Detroit 24: Correct. 25 - 21.
NEW YORK GIANTS 30 Denver 34: Correct. 23 - 41.
OAKLAND 27 Jacksonville 14: Correct. 19 - 9.
SEATTLE 20 San Francisco 28: This was easily my worst pick of the week, college or pro. I fell asleep at the switch here. NO. 29 - 3.
CINCINNATI 21 Pittsburgh 20: Correct. 20 - 10.
