Danny's Week 2 Selections
Tampa Bay @
New York Giants -7
have the extra rest here, and coming off a terrible home loss after the
Championship ring ceremony I find it hard to believe they won’t get it done
today.Tampa will struggle to run the
ball which will hurt them to keep pace with the Giants.
Giants 24 – Bucs 14
New England -14
will have no problem getting on the board against the Cardinals in
Foxboro.Brady and his tight ends will
do work, and expect a big day from Welker.Welker wasn’t a big part of the game plan last week, but knowing Brady
and Belechik, expect Welker to make some noise today.
liked the Colts in this game, but then Freeney and Collie were ruled out.It is hard to say which team will show up and
play better.The Vikings will use AP all
day and try to make the Colts front seven pay with the running game.But, I don’t know how much I trust Ponder
throwing the ball when he has too.The
Colts on the other hand, have the home opener and the beginning of the Luck era
in Lucas Oil Field.I think this will be
similar to last week with the Viking/Jaguars game, home team wins again in OT.
Colts 23 - Vikings 20
@ Carolina +3
This is a
hard game to pick.Brees has always
played well against the Panthers, but you wonder is this year different.Cam Newton and the Panthers are coming off a
terrible performance against Tampa Bay, and they will look to establish the run
game early in order to open up the field for Newton to throw.This is a close game; edge goes to the better
Saints 34 – Panthers 27
@ Buffalo -3
rebounds at home on Sunday afternoon.Chiefs make the long trip to Buffalo, play in the time change zone, play
in different weather, and play against a more motivated team that can stop the
run, throw the deep ball, and have a big weapon in the backfield
themselves.I continue to say the Chiefs
will get off to a slow start and then make a late season run at the
playoffs.Don’t trust Cassel today.Stick with the Harvard grad.
Bills 30 – Chiefs 20
What a game
in Philly on Sunday.The Eagles are in a
must win situation against the Ravens, if you ask the Philly fans, and I think
they will get it done.No way Vick plays
as bad as he did in Cleveland again, and no way Flacco puts up 40+ again.The Eagles defensive line will put pressure
on Flacco and get him off his game.The
Eagles front seven has looked great against the run all preseason and against
the Browns as well.Can the Eagles
secondary keep Torrey Smith and Boldin in check?I believe so, and as long as the Eagles
utilize Shady McCoy on the ground, and Vick stays smart through the air, the
Eagles get this one and head to Arizona 2-0.
Eagles 27 - Ravens 23
@ Miami +2.5
me the cross country travel talk; the Raiders handle their business in Miami on
Sunday.Tannehill will not beat Carson
Palmer, Reggie Bush will not outperform Run DMC, and the Raiders defense will
shine against a rookie quarterback.Welcome to the NFL against Tannehill, best of luck next week.
Raiders 20 – Dolphins 7
@ Cincinnati -7
are in a “must-rebound” situation here.They have to bounce back with authority.20 points wins this game, but they need to post up a donut hole or a 3
spot as a defense.Expect Weeden to be
under duress all game by the Bengals front seven, and expect Gresham and Green
to both have TD catches.Dalton will
get back to his routine here, and BenJarvus will stabilize the offense as well.
Bengals 24 – Browns 6
nervous that this line has not moved at all…Me neither.Texans win again.
Texans 28 – Jaguars 13
ALERT!Seattle is a tough place to play
and the 12th man will be going crazy to rattle Romo and the
Cowboys.The extra days should have
helped the Cowboys get healthy and prepare for this game, the Seahawks are
coming off a should-have been-a win game in Arizona last week.Dallas will sneak out with a win, but do not
be surprised if Russ Wilson and his boys pull off an upset here.Trust me when I say the Seahawks defense is
legit and will force turnovers from Romo, I just question Wilson against the
Cowboys defense too..
Cowboys 17 – Seahawks 16
@ St. Louis +3.5
SPECIAL Part 2!Pierre Garcon is likely
out for the Skins, the Rams defense offers much more of a challenge than the
Saints defense, and RG3 will be under pressure all game.Jeff Fisher has been in football too long to
let a rookie, mobile, quarterback eat up his defense like the Saints allowed
him to do last week.Low scoring game,
the Rams will use Steven Jackson and short passes to eat up the clock and put
points on the board.I am high on the
Redskins, and high on RG3, but I think he is humbled today and the Rams take
down the Skins at home.Sam Bradford is
in his third year behind center, he knows how to win games in the NFL.He will make smart decisions with the
football and the Rams defense will create turnovers.
-Rams 20 – Redesigns 17
Jets @ Pittsburgh -5.5
Polamalu look to be out again for Pittsburgh, but Revis is out for the Jets
too.It’ll be Cromartie and Wilson
taking on Wallace and Brown, Sanchez vs Big Ben, and Rex vs Tomlin.I give the edge to the home team in what
appears to be a must win game.Jets look
like the preseason Jets in this one.
Steelers 20 – Jets 10
San Diego -6.5
needs to rebound, but the Chargers defense was impressive against the Raiders
last week.Kenny Britt to see some
action today?Can the Titans get it done
on the road against Phil Rivers without Ryan Matthews?Advantage home team.Stop Chris Johnson and the Chargers should
win this game.
Chargers 23 – Titans 20
San Francisco -7
Detroit.The 49ers at home are very
tough to beat.Harbaugh will not lose
this game; I just cannot wait for the post game handshake.
-49ers 24 – Lions 20
the week?!Peyton and his boys cross the
country to play a Monday night matchup in Atlanta.Matty Ice looked stellar last week and I expect
that trend to continue. But Peyton looked sharp too, and Atlanta doesn’t offer
much of a pass rush to shut him down, so I expect this game to be pretty high
scoring.Peyton will utilize the no
huddle offense to get the Falcons defense tired come the fourth quarter.But, Ryan has more weapons to use and Michael
Turner will bust out for some big runs to ignite the offense and the
crowd.Settle down Peyton bandwagon,
plenty of games this season.
