The Ravens don’t know who will start at QB, and against a team like the Cardinals who is showing signs of turning the corner that could be dangerous. However, at home with their defense they will find a way to pull it out, but it will be close all the way.
After struggling in his first two games, you have to expect LaDainian Tomlinson to have a break out game sooner rather then later, and that break out game will come in Lambeau Field, as the Chargers but up an impressive road win against the Packers, with Brett Favre closing in on the Interception record.
Both teams are 2-0, while the Colts are hardly a surprise to be there, the Texans are and with their defense they may actually be for real. However, the Colts just know how to win, and on the road they will continue their string of good starts by playing their usual solid game to beat the Texans.
The Chiefs have had a Hard Knock Summer, winless in the pre-season, 0-2 to start the regular season. However, on Sunday it will be fall and the Chiefs will finally get a notch in the win column as they come home and host the Vikings, who are not much to write home about themselves.
The Patriots have looked like monsters so fat hammering the Chargers and Jets 38-14 to start the season 2-0. The Bills have had a player nearly paralyzed and have played poorly starting 0-2. Look for things to stay the same as the Patriots make it 3-for-3 and 38-14 again.
Two teams at 0-2, playing an early elimination game in the AFC East. The winner has some hope, the loser should start focusing on 2008. The Dolphins are 0-2 becuase well they are a bad team, while the Jets have had a tough schedule. That tells you all you need to know, as the Jets get back on track and the Dolphins stay on the road to nowhere.
One team is 2-0, the other is 0-2, not a surprise when the season began, but it’s not who you thought it would be as the young Lions have played well at 2-0, while Donovan McNabb is still slowed with his knee injury for the 0-2 Eagles. On Sunday it will get a little back to normal as the Eagles earn a solid win.
After a tough 2006, the Steelers have looked like they’ve regained their 2005 Super Bowl form, winning games with defense, as Ben Roethlisberger has shaken off the nagging injuries and regained his All-Pro form. Look for the Steelers to climb to 3-0, winning a battle of 2-0 teams.
The Buccaneers looked good last week as they hammered the Saints, while the Rams offense sputtered as they lost a heartbreaker to fall to 0-2. Even in their Week 1 loss to the Seahawks, the Bucs played well, look for them to play well again as they beat the Rams.
Sometimes it’s not how you win, just as long as you win. Just ask the 2-0 Broncos who beat the Bills in Week 1 on a hurry up game winning Field Goal, and then dodged a bullet with the Raiders missing a FG in OT, to win with Jason Elam’s leg again in week too. Look for the Broncos to win again at the wire by a Field Goal.
Here you Raiders fans after holding a brief 4th Quarter Lead in Week 1, and having a game winning Field Goal wiped out by a time out in Week 2, the time has come for a win for the Silver and Black, as Derek Anderson and the Browns will be hard press to match last week’s offense output.
Matt Hasslebeck, Shaun Alexander, and the rest of the Sehawks’ mouths must be watering at watching the way the Bengals defense was sliced, diced and a spiced by the Bengals last week by the Browns. Look for the Seahawks to put up a big number as the Bengals lose another high scoring game.
After losing their first two games on the road the Falcons finally come home. Don’t expect things to get any better, as Joey Harrington continues to stink it up while Byron Leftwich gets a crash course on the Falcons playbook. Look for Harrington to get benched at the end of this one as the Falcons remain in the dog house.
I weigh 450lbs, and cant run 10 feet without getting winded, but if I were to dress up for the Redskins, the Giants secondary would not be able to cover or tackle me, as holdout Michael Strahan continues to demonstrate he is the captain of a sinking ship with the Giants falling to 0-3 and getting lit up again.
This Sunday Night showdown could be replayed in January with a trip to the desert of Arizona on the line, as early on they look like the class of the NFC. Look for the Bears defense to shutdown Tony Romo, as the Bears use the edge of Solider Field to pull out a close game with the Cowboys.
After starting 0-2, the Saints suddenly find themselves in a must win game with their home opener on Monday Night. Look for the gumbo to be the best medicine as the Saints look like the Super Bowl favorite they were expected to be for the first time this season with a get well win over the Titans at the Superdome.
