◼️ Five teams are guaranteed to continue their perfect start now that we arrive at the second week of the campaign.
The first week of the campaign came and went faster than a night of good company and drinks and, like a good party, I always have more questions than answers. Week 2 promises exciting matches and clashes that will surely leaves with some surprises and amazing moments.
Game Of The Week
Vikings in Green Bay (-1): Aaron Rodgers is simply ridiculous. He is the best quarterback of today and his performance of “Look mom, without a leg” on Sunday night only ratified his status and justified his check. But I don’t think I can repeat it. Even if he’s healthy enough to play, or half-heartedly against Chicago, the Vikings defense will not give him a free pass. They’re going to press him, they’re going to harass him and they’re going to put that left leg to the test. Minnesota has two things that Chicago doesn’: the defense to besiege Rodgers and the offense to demand the Green Bay attack to run at a high level. Vikings 27-24 Packers.
The ‘Easy Money’ Pick Of The Week
Cardinals in L.A. Rams (-12.5): The Cardinals are the Angry Birds … some red birds that everyone throws around and were relevant five years ago. Rams 34-20 Cardinals.
The ‘Shock’ Of The Week
Seahawks in Chicago (-3.5): The Seahawks already showed that they are perfectly capable of scoring 23 points against a good defense. Against Trubisky is all that is needed. Seattle 23-21 Chicago.
Ravens (-1) in Cincinnati: The Ravens have an outstanding revenge thirst after the unlikely defeat of week 17 that left them out of the last season playoffs: Baltimore 28-21 Bengals.
Chiefs in Pittsburgh (-5): A nice reminder to Ben Roethlisberger: The guys in red are not in your team. Steelers 36-31 Chiefs.
Panthers in Atlanta (-5.5): The Falcons already had 10 days to figure out how to finally overcome the red zone. Atlanta 26-19 Carolina.
Chargers (-7.5) in Buffalo: Let’s put it this way: No Jim Kelly. Chargers 37-20 Bills.
Texans in Tennessee: Someone should tell Mariota that he’s still injured. Texans 20-17 Titans.
Browns in New Orleans (-9): The Browns are like a baby sea turtle … the Saints are the shark. Saints 38-14 Browns.
Dolphins in N.Y. Jets (-3): Two quarterbacks with outstanding performances in the first week. One of them will return to reality, the other is Sam Darnold. Jets 23-17 Dolphins.
Eagles (-3) in Tampa Bay: There are lies of politicians with more sustenance than Ryan Fitzpatrick. Eagles 27-17 Bucs.
Colts in Washington (-6): The Colts are not as bad as they were in week 1 … they are worse. Skins 27-20 Colts.
Lions in San Francisco (-5.5): The most important question for Matt Patricia on this trip to San Francisco is if there’s anything good to eat? 49ers 28-23 Lions.
Raiders in Broncos (-5.5): With the arrival of Martavis Bryant, the Raiders will finally be able to put pressure on the quarterback … his own. Broncos 24-17 Raiders.
Patriots (-1.5) in Jacksonville: The Jaguars could well be foreign builders, they will deliver the work seven months late. Jacksonville 21-20 Patriots
Giants in Cowboys (-3): Watching this game, everyone loses. But the Giants more than anyone. Cowboys 26-23 Giants.
