FanIQ GameDay Live: Week 2
St. Louis at Atlanta
Jen: I don't fear the stache, so Falcons win.
Eric: I don't particularly fear, or know much about, the Rams, so I'll take the Falcons. I'd feel better about this if their good receivers were healthy though.
Cleveland at Baltimore
Jen: I like the underdog. Browns.
Eric: The Ravens probably aren't as bad as they looked last week. The Browns probably are as bad as they looked last week, particularly Weeden. Easy win for Baltimore.
Carolina at Buffalo
Jen: The Bills kept pace with NE last weekend. The Panthers seem to have a decent defense, but you need a good offense to score some points. Bills by more than the Panthers.
Eric: I'm still driving the Panthers bandwagon, although it's about to spin like Clint Bowyer. Panthers, although Ron Rivera will probably find a way to screw it up.
Minnesota at Chicago
Jen: Bears, not for any other reason except I just can't pick the Vikings.
Eric: My fantasy team this year ended up with Adrian Peterson and Matt Forte as my starting running backs. Add Tom Brady to the mix and I wouldn't mind having a terrible fantasy season. (Pick: Bears)
Washington at Green Bay
Jen: I know what I should say, but I just can't.
Eric: RGIII showed some inevitable rust and DC inevitably freaked out. He'll be fine. It's the rest of the team that could be a problem. The Packers, meanwhile, have licked their latest San Francisco wounds and look to do to Washington's defense what the Eagles did. I, of course, think they can.
Tennessee at Houston
Jen: The battle of the T's. I'm taking the Texans.
Eric: My apologies for using the city names and thus not helping you sell that joke. The Titans are a question mark. Are they as good as they looked in Week 1, or are the Steelers just bad? Houston is probably better regardless.
Miami at Indianapolis
Jen: Go Dolphins, I refuse to choose the other team
Eric: Do the Colts ever play a game that doesn't go down to the wire? My guess is they do again, but this time their luck runs out and the Dolphins take it.
Dallas at Kansas City
Jen: Oh please let the Chiefs be a good enough team to beat Dallas. Chiefs
Eric: Kansas City is going to match their 2012 win total in two weeks this season.
San Diego at Philadelphia
Jen: If the Chargers can play all four quarters and not implode they might win this. Eagles played well against the Skins last week, but also faltered in the second half. Chargers.
Eric: But if they played all four quarters and not implode, they wouldn't be the Chargers. This, plus the West Coast team playing at 10 am thing* means I'm taking the Eagles.
* I'm convinced this is a thing, but don't have proof. I'm sure someone out there has done the research, but I'm too lazy to look it up.
Detroit at Arizona
Jen: I haven't a clue. Cardinals, maybe.
Eric: The Lions pretty much dominated the Vikings except for stupid mistakes that made it closer than it looked, which sounds exactly like the Lions. I'll pick them to win even though this feels like a game they would blow.
New Orleans at Tampa Bay
Jen: Bucs have so many holes to fill. Saints have all their weapons and a fresh start. Saints.
Eric: The Bucs are a complete disaster, as it turns out Greg Schiano is a dumbass. Saints.
Denver at N.Y. Giants
Jen: Peyton best live up to his reputation. Ugh Giants. Broncos.
Eric: Denver got the extra days off coming off a virtuoso performance, The Giants are coming off a high profile loss and are so desperate for a running back they brought back Brandon Jacobs. So why am I picking the Giants? Because football is whack, Jack.
Jacksonville at Oakland
Jen: Go Raiders.
SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL
San Francisco at Seattle
Jen: Oh man, at the risk of Jess not speaking to me for a day or so, I have to take the Niners. Seattle just didn't play that well last week. Niners.
Eric: I don't know why Jess speaks to me anyway, so I might as well risk it to. Niners, because as a Packers fan I'm used to them dominating. It's a form of Stockholm Syndrome I think.
There you have it. Don't forget to place your bets on today's games at the GameCenter, and to Q it up throughout Week 2.
