Miami Dolphins (-7) at Jacksonville Jaguars
Miami (1-0) looked very average in beating the Redskins last week. Yet that is alright, because the Jaguars (0-1) would love to look average at some point this decade. At what moment do Jacksonville fans just rise up and take the field for their own? All things considered, 22 fans couldn’t be worse than this grease fire.
Pick: Miami 23, Jacksonville 11
Baltimore Ravens at Oakland Raiders (NO LINE)
There i no line yet because the Vegas oddsmakers are unsure whether Derek Carr is going to start, or if the immortal Matt McGloin is going to play. Oakland (0-1) looked very much like Oakland in Week 1, getting blown out by the Bengals. Baltimore (0-1) also played lousy against the Broncos and need a win. Guess which way I’m leaning?
Pick: Baltimore 23, Oakland 13
Dallas Cowboys at Philadelphia Eagles (-5)
How are the Eagles (0-1) favored by five points in this game? The Eagles played like hot garbage and lost to the Falcons in Week 1, while the Cowboys (1-0) overcame a million mistakes to score 27 points and beat the Giants. This feels like a Tony Romo special against a highly-overrated Philadelphia secondary.
Pick: Dallas 28, Philadelphia 24
Seattle Seahawks at Green Bay Packers (-4)
This is the best game of the weekend, along with the Chiefs and Broncos. Green Bay (1-0) could put Seattle (0-1) in dire straits should it win. The Packers would have a two-game lead for home-field advantage over the Seahawks in the NFC and own the tiebreaker. This is a huge game, and I am rolling with Aaron Rodgers against a Kam Chancellor-less defense.
Pick: Green Bay 27, Seattle 24
New York Jets at Indianapolis Colts (-7.5)
Indianapolis (0-1) is in need of a win and New York is feeling confident after beating up on Cleveland. It seems like the week where the Colts come out in front of the home crowd and just bury the Jets before the first quarter is over. Indianapolis’ defense is appalling, but Ryan Fitzpatrick is not good enough to take advantage.
Pick: Indianapolis 30, New York 19
Last week: 9-7
