2007 4-Caster Frank's NFL Picks
Panthers 20 Texans 10
Two teams with solid wins in Week 1 face off in Carolina. While former Texans QB David Carr sits behind Panthers QB Jake Delhomme you just have to know he wishes he had a chance to beat his former team. He will have to settle for his teammates doing it as the Texans may be turning the corner, but won't win on the road.
Jaguars 20 Falcons 3
After a 24-3 loss to the Vikings in Week 1 it is safe to say the Falcons season is gone to the dogs. Expect more pain this week as Joey Harrington starts to contemplate a career as a concert pianist, since his NFL career is nearing a quick pathetic ending, as one of the biggest busts ever.
Bengals 27 Browns 10
The battle of Ohio, has one team feeling high after a Week 1 win over the Ravens, and the other feeling a mile low, after trading Week 1 starting QB Charlie Frye. Look for both teams to have the same feelings, as the Bengals start 2-0 while the Browns start looking toward the future with Brady Quinn getting a few snaps.
Packers 38 Giants 17
Bad news for the Giants their defense looks like Swiss Cheese, and Eli Manning is doubtful to play in the home opener. Look for the Giants defense to take another flogging as Tom Coughlin is booed. Perhaps this is why Michael Strahan was named Captain, despite holding out all pre-season, because nobody else has a pulse.
Steelers 24 Bills 13
The Steelers had an easy Week 1 win, while the Bills had a heart wrenching loss on and off the field, as special teamer Kevin Everett lay in a hospital struggling just to regain use of his legs. Pro athletes can circle the wagons in tough situations like this, but going into Pittsburgh will make winning nearly impossible.
Rams 27 49ers 17
After losing at home last week to the Panthers, the Rams are in a must win situation in Week 2. A loss will put them in a deep hole before autumn begins. They have allot of talent and for that reason alone they will get the win, holding off the young 49ers coming off a short week, and a tough game.
Season Total: 14-2 .875
Saints 24 Buccaneers 10
The Saints after a 41-10 thumping on Opening Night have been waiting 10 days to get up off the mat, and get the bad taste out of their mouth. Facing the Buccaneers in Week 2 will give them the perfect opportunity as the Bucs limping home for their own tough loss drops to 0-2, with Drew Brees having a big day for the Saints.
Colts 28 Titans 17
When last these two met the Titans stunned the Colts with a 60-yard game winning Field Goal. This time in Week 2 both teams are 2-0 after solid Week 1 efforts. However, it is the Colts who are the better team here, and it will show on Sunday as their defense holds Vince Young in check, to collect the win on the road.
Lions 30 Vikings 20
Believe it or Not, one of these teams will be 2-0 after this week. While truth be told their wins in the opener came against the little sisters of the poor, any good start is good for confidence with a young team. Look for the Lions to get the boost, as the offense is solid with Mike Martz calling the plays, as the Vikings won't be facing Joey Harrington this week.
Cowboys 21 Dolphins 13
The Cowboys offense is not as good as it looked in Week 1, and their defense is not as bad as it looked either. Look for both to come back to more normal numbers this week as the Cowboys get a solid road win, against the Dolphins whose offense is as bad as it looked in Week 1, while their defense has room for improvement.
Seahawks 24 Cardinals 20
The Cardinals had their hearts ripped out in Week 1 as the 49ers won the Monday Night Opener with 22 seconds left. This week in their home opener against the Seahawks they get a chance to make an early statement they wont go away quietly, and for most of the game they will lead, but just like Charlie Brown always misses the football, the Cardinals always lose in the end.
Ravens 20 Jets 10
Week 1 was as tough as can be for both teams, losing to division rivals while injuries hit key players. Ray Lewis is questionable, as is both Quarterbacks in this game. While the Ravens have the home crowd the Jets have bigger problems, as a bad ankle against the Ravens defense will make Chad Pennington a sitting duck, and if the Jets start Kellen Clemens the Jets will be a dead duck.
Bears 24 Chiefs 0
Brodie Croyle, come on down, you soon will be the starting Quarterback of a team that just aint right. Ahh yes I can hear that sound just like when you miss out on the new car, the Chiefs keep missing out on the endzone as the Bears after a tough loss in Week 1, comes home and shutout the anemic Chiefs.
Broncos 27 Raiders 6
An old man gets into a line for soup at the mission, behind him a kid looks up and says didn't you used to be the champ. Well the Raiders are the old man and the mission is where the Raiders hopes are, as last place is now painted black and silver, because this franchise is now perhaps the worst in all of sports, amazing for a team that once seemed to be in the AFC Championship annually.
Chargers 31 Patriots 20
The Patriots were lucky to beat the Chargers in the playoffs last here, as the game was gift wrapped to them by former Chargers Coach Marty Schottenheimer. The key there is former coach, as the Chargers out for revenge make a primetime statement by beating the Pats in their home opener, as their ability to cheat has been compromised by getting caught.
Eagles 27 Redskins 10
By the time the Eagles take the field Monday Night for their home opener the Phillies will be done, as the Wild Card slips further away, and the Mets out for revenge for a sweep in Philly, comes closer to winning the division by hammering the Phillies at Shea. Oh the football game the Redskins are lucky to be 1-0, and the Eagles are better then 0-1 look for the Eagle to win easy.
