The CHEAT SHEET in the CHEAP SEATS – Week 2 (pt 2)

RG III blew up on the scene like I (didn’t) know he would. Time to head to the city he nearly landed in for week 2.

 

Week one had a few surprises for my initial call. There was no way I saw RGIII arriving the way he did, and even the 49ers showing up how they did was a big surprise. However, for the most part I made out well in week one.  The Rams, Cowboys and Seahawks were surprising effective, win or loss. However, I need to see more out of the Eagles, Saints and Jets this week. Bring it to the middle, although as you’ll see…this isn’t the week for one of them to do it. Yet.

This week has already started out well, with the Packers making prediction #1 ring true, so the hope of the perfect week is still alive. Here’s how the week 2 of 17 will play out.

Last Week: 10-5

Season: 11-5

 

Kansas City Chiefs (0-1) at Buffalo Bills (0-1): KC’s defense is beat up already, and the Bills are suffering from a few crucial injuries as well in Fred Jackson and David Nelson, but Ryan Fitzpatrick still be able to exploit the deep defense for a Bills win.

Cleveland Browns (0-1) at Cincinnati Bengals (0-1): A rebound week for the Bengals, who looked solid on O, but porous on D vs. the Ravens on Monday. These Browns are not the Ravens, and it’s the perfect O for Cincy to work the defensive kinks out again. Bengals win.

Minnesota Vikings (1-0) at Indianapolis Colts (0-1): Adrian Peterson put on in a way that only he could in his first game action in over a year. The Colts D is still rebuilding, and he should have another strong day this week. The Vikes will surprisingly open up 2-0 with this win.

Arizona Cardinals (1-0) at New England Patriots (1-0): The Cardinals held out to win a last second win in week one and even got some inspirational play out of Kevin Kolb as a late plug in. Tom Brady and his 11th home debut are on deck this week, and he’s yet to exploit the full potential of his offense yet. That should take place this week in a Patriots rout.

Oakland Raiders (0-1) at Miami Dolphins (0-1): There’s not much to get excited about from these Dolphins, and Carson Palmer should be able to pick his shots as he sees them all day. Raiders win.

Tampa Buccaneers (1-0) at New York Giants (0-1): If Josh Freeman gets his line to hold, Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams could definitely put up numbers on a shaky looking Giants secondary. But Eli Manning and company will definitely put up a big number on the board, and rebound to 1-1. Giants win.

Baltimore Ravens (1-0) at Philadelphia Eagles (0-1): Baltimore kicked in on Monday night, and didn’t even have to fully unleash Ray Rice to do it. The Eagles on the other hand survived around four picks into a last second W. That chance won’t be there this week, as the Ravens put this one away early.

New Orleans Saints (0-1) at Carolina Panthers (0-1): The Saints got blindsided by the Skins last week, in a big upset. They face a team this week with a similar type of attack and a stronger D. The Saints interim regime will start getting some pressure this week, after the Panthers win.

Houston Texans (1-0) at Jacksonville Jaguars (0-1): Jags looked better to start the year than they finished it last year, and MJD finally got some practice in this week. Too bad the Texans await all of this progress and an inevitable setback waits. Texans win.

Washington Redskins (1-0) at St. Louis Rams (0-1): RGIII made a debut that looked exactly like he did at Baylor, although it was versus an NFL Playoff team. The opposite awaits in the Rams this week, but an injury to Pierre Garcon, as well as a Rams defense that played much better in Detroit await, and the surprise win of the week for the Rams as well.

Dallas Cowboys (1-0) at Seattle Seahawks (0-1): The Cowboys looked as impressive as any offense in week one, but the Seahawks defense showed its preseason effort was no fluke. This game will be closer than it would seem, but the Cowboys have too many weapons. Boys win.

New York Jets (1-0) at Pittsburgh Steelers (0-1): The Jets offense scored as many points last week as many assumed they would this month. The Steelers ran into a vintage Peyton Manning last week, and still weren’t embarrassed on D. With Ryan Clark back and a home debut in store, the Steelers get right this week and win it.

Tennessee Titans (0-1) at San Diego Chargers (1-0): The Chargers tossed the ball around well last week, and will be able to stretch the field with ease against these Titans. And they’ll also grab an easy win.

Detroit Lions (1-0) at San Francisco 49ers (1-0): Another tough offense awaits the Niners in week two, fresh off a big win in Lambeau. Megatron will show his foot injury was overplayed, and have a big day, but Alex Smith will counter by showing the new balanced Niner O is the real deal. SF wins.

Denver Broncos (1-0) at Atlanta Falcons (1-0): For a change, the best game of the week, or at least the most exciting, should be the last one. Peyton came back like he never left in week one, while Matt Ryan broke out a Falcons offense that looked to be ready to overwhelm anybody in its way. This will be a high scoring affair, but the Falcons have been one of the best home teams in football the last three years, and they’ll show why on Monday. Falcons win.
