NFL Week Two Pigskin Predictions

PACK over bears
The Packers are not going to open the season 0-2 at home. Green Bay beats the Bears by six.

Prediction: PACK 30, bears 24 [RESULT: PACK 23, bears 10]
Vikings RB Adrian Peterson

vikes over COLTS
Coming on an impressive week one re-debut, Adrian Peterson steamrolls the Colts to lead the Purple to 2-0.

Prediction: vikings 24, COLTS 20

BILLS over chiefs
The Chiefs allowed 40 points at home to the Falcons last week. Buffalo’s offense may not be as prolific, but it will be enough for a win.

Prediction: BILLS 23, chiefs 17
Bengals S Reggie Nelson (left)
BENGALS over browns
Cleveland has no hope in this one. Cincinnati rebounds from a sloppy second half at Baltimore last week to clobber the visiting Browns this afternoon.

Prediction: BENGALS 27, browns 6

raiders over FINS
The Dolphins hope to bounce back from a 20-point drubbing in Houston last week –the operative word being hope. Oakland rumbles by Miami as Fins fans realize in person just how bad their team is this year.

Prediction: raiders 23, FINS 10

PATS over cards
New England offers no shred of light for Arizona today. The Patriots win its 2012 home debut in blowout fashion.

Prediction: PATS 31, cards 10

GIANTS over bucs
Following a dismal 4-12 season last year, the Buccaneers began its new campaign with an impressive win over Carolina. But there’s no way the reigning NFL champs lose this one. The Giants halt Tampa and win handily.

Prediction: GIANTS 27, bucs 10
Eagles QB Michael Vick

EAGLES over ravens
Michael Vick rebounds from a four-pick debacle in Cleveland last week to lift his Eagles past the Ravens in today’s battle of the birds.

Prediction: EAGLES 20, ravens 17

Saints over PANTHERS
Cam Newton and company gives their hometown faithful a show. But the visiting Saints have too much firepower and survive this shootout by six.

Prediction: SAINTS 33, panthers 27

texans over JAGS
Blaine Gabbert was impressive last week in Minnesota. However, he’ll face a tougher defense today. The visiting Texans tame Gabbert’s Jaguars in Jacksonville.

Prediction: TEXANS 23, jags 13

RAMS over skins
St. Louis nearly nabbed a big upset victory in Detroit last week. Meanwhile, Robert Griffin III opened up his NFL career with a spectacular win in New Orleans. Griffin is going to have a great year, but he gets temporally grounded today. The Rams manage to sneak by the Redskins in overtime.

Prediction: RAMS 23, skins 20 (in OT)

HAWKS over boys
Unleash the beast! Marshawn Lynch punishes Dallas defenders in Seattle this afternoon as the Seahawks edge the Cowboys by four.

Prediction: HAWKS 21, boys 17
Steelers S Ryan Clark
STEEL over jets
Pittsburgh safety Ryan Clark is itching to play after sitting out his team’s first game last week in Denver. Clark picks off Jets QB Mark Sanchez as the Steelers top New York by two touchdowns.

Prediction: STEEL 24, jets 10

CHARGERS over titans
San Diego backs up its road win against the Raiders last week by conquering the Titans at home today.

Prediction: CHARGERS 24, titans 17

NINERS over lions
San Francisco’s suffocating D is too much for a potent Lions O as the host 49ers defeat Detroit in primetime tonight.

Prediction: NINERS 20, lions 17

Falcons QB Matt Ryan
FALCONS over broncos
Move over Saints, it’s looking like the Falcons may finally take that step past you this season. Peyton Manning looks poised to be NFL’s comeback player of the year, but Matt Ryan and his tremendous receiving weapons prove too much for the wily vet to overcome tomorrow night. Atlanta defeats Denver by six.

Prediction: FALCONS 30, broncos 24
