NFL Week 2 picks

NFL Week 2 picks

Week 2 of the NFL is this week and here we are with half of the 32 teams with winning records of 1-0 and the 16 with losing records of 0-1. No division has an all winning or all losing record. So, it starts. We have the “professionals” idea of who will win and mine. I’m not a professional picker but I don’t consider  anyone a professional picker. I mean heck there has been allegations for years that games have been like WWE matches. So I look at all the stuff they do, the weather, whose hurt, blah blah blah and pick whose gonna win or lose but we all know there will be one game somewhere in the season where one team will defy all odds and beat the team that all chose to win.

So for the “experts” I chose NFL.com and ESPN.com they have Dan Hanzus, Gregg Rosenthal, Kevin Patra, Marc Sessler, Chris Wesseling, Allen, Golic, Hoge, Jaworski, Joyner, Mortensen, Scheften, Schlereth, Wichersham, Jackson, Johnson, Ditka, and Carter. Then we are also going up against Vegas and what The Machine is picking.

So we’ll see where I stand at the end of it all.

Thursday 09/11

Pittsburgh Steelers 1-1 @ Baltimore Ravens 1-1 0725 final score 6-26

The Ravens ended up beating the Steelers last night by alot so I’m up that one.

Sunday 09/21

Miami Dolphins (1-0) @ Buffalo Bills (1-0) 1200
ESPN – 7 chose Dolphins / 6 chose Buffalo
NFL –  all 5 chose Dolphin
The Machine – Bills
Vegas –  Dolphins (-1)
Me – Bills

I’m choosing Buffalo only because the weather is showing 90’s and rain all week long EXCEPT on Sunday. We all know that that is highly unlikely that it’s going to be raining every day except on Sunday. I think Buffalo plays in a open air stadium in New York and not in sunny Miami they will be better equipped to play in rain. So I’m going with Buffalo.

Jacksonville Jaguars (0-1) @ Washington Redskins (0-1) 1200
ESPN – 4 chose Jaguars / 9 chose Washington
NFL – all five chose Washington
The Machine – Washington
Vegas – Washington (-6)

Even though I’m a Packer fan I am secretly hoping for the Panthers to win but for the purpose of being true to my picks I believe the Panthers will win.

St. Louis Rams (0-1) @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-1) 305
ESPN – all 13 for Buccs

Are we really surprised here. I mean no one should be like WHAT? You are picking Denver over KC? Yeah. I don’t explaining why this pick is the way it is is neccessary.

Chicago Bears (0-1) @ San Francisco 49ers (1-0) 730
ESPN – 13 49ers / 1 Bears
NFL – 4 49ers / 1 Bears
The Machine – 49ers
Vegas – 49ers (-7)

I’m an old school 9ers fan but not so much a Colin fan but I still like to see them win against the Bears.

Monday 09/22
