Week 2 Predictions.
So when we left our intrepid heroes, Duncan had beaten Dan by one game, putting him up 1-0. Enter Jon who will be joining us in making his predictions this week and from now on.
New York Jets @ New England Patriots
A game that at the start of season would have been thought to be a walkover. But thanks to a number of important injuries for the Pats and some improved play from the Jets and Geno Smith, we’re looking at a much closer game than we thought.
Dan: Patriots Win
Duncan: Patriots Win
Jon: Patriots Win
St Louis Rams @ Atlanta Falcons
So another game that is closer than we would have thought. The Rams Offence looks like it can score points and the Falcons D, looks beatable. However don’t write off what Ryan with some ridiculous talent on Offence can do.
Dan: Falcons Win
Duncan: Falcons Win
Jon: Rams Win
Cleveland Browns @ Baltimore Ravens
So we’re all backing the Browns and want them to do well. But we’re also losing confidence rapidly. Can they bounce back against a Ravens team that is looking beatable? Will Weeden improve? Or will they fall victim to a Ravens team looking for a bounce back win.
Dan: Ravens Win
Duncan: Browns Win
Jon: Ravens Win- But Browns win the moral victory…for being the Browns
Carolina Panthers @ Buffalo Bills
So EJ Manuel got some heads turning and rightly so. But this week he goes up against the impressive front 7 of the Carolina Panthers. Last weeks results have set up a great game here.
Dan: Bills Win…but I don’t feel good about it
Duncan: Bills Win
Jon: Bills Win
Minnesota Vikings @ Chicago Bears
On paper this should be pretty one-sided, but when you have Adrian Peterson in your team it is pretty obvious that you are always in the game and Jared Allen likes nothing more than bringing Cutler to the ground.
Dan: Bears Win
Duncan: Bears Win
Jon: Bears Win
Washington Redskins @ Green Bay Packers
Both teams lost. Both teams looked like they could win some. Does RGIII take advantage of a weak Packers team? Or does Rodgers take advantage of a weak Redskins Defence. Basically there could be some really bad Defensive play.
Dan: urgh Packers Win
Duncan: Packers Win
Jon: Redskins Win
Tennessee Titans @ Houston Texans
Titans won a tough fought game against an ailing Steelers team. The Texans overcame a huge deficit to win a close game against a bad Chargers team. But who has the legs to go 2-o
Dan: Titans…really not feeling good about this one!
Duncan: Titans give them a scare, but Texans Win
Miami Dolphins @ Indianapolis Colts
This game could separate the men from the Boys. Both teams were highly rated and have not necessarily looked their best. Hopefully atleast one team manages to pick it up a bit.
Dan: Colts Win
Duncan: Colts Win
Jon: Dolphins Win
Dallas Cowboys @ Kansas City Chiefs
The Cowboys looked the less awful team against the Giants. The Chiefs looked like a very well put together team that will not make the same mistakes that an exciting Cowboys side has the potential to make.
Dan: Cowboys Win
Duncan: Cowboys Win
Jon: Chiefs Win
San Diego Chargers @ Philadelphia Eagles
Every week I will be waiting to see if this is the week the Eagles make huge mistakes with the fast paced Chip Kelly Offence. But against the Chargers, this probably isn’t the case.
Dan: Eagles Win
Duncan: Chargers Win
Jon: Eagles Win
Detroit Lions @ Arizona Cardinals
Interesting game here. The Lions looked like there was very little that could stop them scoring. The Cardinals looked improved in all areas, with Palmer bringing the best out of Fitzgerald.
Dan: Cardinals Win
Duncan: Lions Win
Jon: Lions Win
New Orleans Saints @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers
but need to cement that with a win here. That being said…
Dan: Buccaneers Win
Duncan: Saints Win
Jon: Saints Win
Denver Broncos @ New York Giants
ITS THE MANNING BOWL! This however could be really one-sided.
Dan: Broncos Win
Duncan: Broncos Win
Jon: Broncos Win
Jacksonville Jaguars @ Oakland Raiders
Dan: Jaguars Win
Duncan: Raiders Win
Jon: Football…Football is the loser.
San Francisco 49ers @ Seattle Seahawks
Easily game of the night. Both teams are clear Superbowl contenders. Both teams have young talented teams and both teams hate each other.
Dan: Seahawks Win
Duncan: 49ers Win
Jon: Seahawks Win
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Cincinnati Bengals
The Bengals go into this one as favourites as the Steelers flounder in injury hell. The Bengals need to win this to be seen as favourites in this Division.
Dan: Bengals Win
Duncan: Bengals Win
Jon: Bengals Win
So that’s week 2, enjoy people.
