Week 2 NFL Matchup: Baltimore Ravens @ Tennessee Titans
Date: Sunday, September 18th, 1:00 ET
Location: LP Field, Nashville, TN
NFL Lines: Baltimore -5.5
Over/Under 38
Week 2 NFL TV Schedule: CBS

Sorry, Tennessee. You just don’t cut it in this one. If the Titans had even an average quarterback, we’d love their chances at an upset. However, if QB Matt Hasselbeck can’t move the ball against the Jaguars, what chance does he have against the Ravens? We’ve already seen that Baltimore can run up and down the field against the Steelers, who arguably have the best defense in the league, and we’d be shocked if Tennessee held it to fewer than 24 points. That being said, we’re not so sure that anyone is scoring 20 against the Ravens right now, especially after forcing seven turnovers last week. Quoth the Ravens, never score.

Week 2 NFL Pick: Baltimore -5.5

Week 2 NFL Matchup: Kansas City Chiefs @ Detroit Lions
Date: Sunday, September 18th, 1:00 ET
Location: Ford Field, Detroit, MI
NFL Lines: Detroit -8.5
Over/Under 45
Week 2 NFL TV Schedule: CBS

As long as WR Calvin Johnson plays, we just don’t see any reason that the Lions won’t win this game and win it handily. QB Matt Stafford looked sharp last week, and now he gets to go against a KC secondary that was just flat out awful last week against Ryan Freaking Fitzpatrick and the Bills. Oh yeah, and S Eric Berry is out for the season as well. Detroit should be able to name its number against the Chiefs, and if that’s the case, don’t be shocked if this one turns into a wicked romp. We just don’t see QB Matt Cassel and RB Jamaal Charles being able to keep up when push truly comes to shove. Get ready to party like it’s 1997, Motown! After all, that was the last time you covered a spread as a touchdown or greater favorite.

Week 2 NFL Pick: Detroit -8.5

Week 2 NFL Matchup: Arizona Cardinals @ Washington Redskins
Date: Sunday, September 18th, 1:00 ET
Location: FedEx Field, Landover, MD
NFL Lines: Washington -3.5
Over/Under 44
Week 2 NFL TV Schedule: FOX

Two plays in this one, and both of them make a whole heck of a lot ot sense. About the only team that might have a secondary as bad as that of the Giants right now is Arizona, which allowed over 400 passing yards to QB Cam Newton in his first professional game. Needless to say, that just won’t cut it to say the least. QB Rex Grossman at least looked competent last week, and we know that he will have the ability to throw for at least 300 yards again in this one. That being said, QB Kevin Kolb looked relatively comfortable in his first game with his new team, and we expect that WR Larry Fitzgerald is going to have a rock solid game as well. Don’t be surprised if this one ends with a high scoring ‘W’ for the hosts.

Week 2 NFL Pick: Arizona/Washington Over 44 and Washington -3.5

Week 2 NFL Matchup: Houston Texans @ Miami Dolphins
Date: Sunday, September 18th, 4:15 ET
Location: Sun Life Stadium, Miami, FL
NFL Lines: Houston -3
Over/Under 48
Week 2 NFL TV Schedule: CBS

Pardon us as we wipe the drool off of the floor left by QB Matt Schaub and WR Andre Johnson. These two have to be absolutely salivating over the idea of going against a Miami defense that just allowed over 500 passing yards to QB Tom Brady and the Pats. However, we know that the key man might be TE Owen Daniels, who also has to be loving life after the Fins allowed 200 yards to the New England tight ends. The Dolphins can’t afford to lose this game, and knowing that, we expect just that to happen. The Texans are the real deal, and they’re going to prove it this weekend by wiping the floor with Miami.

Week 2 NFL Pick: Houston -3
