That 'We' I'm referring to is the Buffalo Bills. That's right I'm on the team. Although I could see how you might mistake it with my work as a prognosticator in week 1. But much like the Bills - I'll have to try to keep momentum going now that expectations have been raised, everrrrr so slightly. Click for my Week 2 picks after the jump...
Sunday, September 18th (1:00 ET Kickoffs)
Two teams that are just wildly unexciting. I'll go with the Colts plus the points.
Sunday, September 18th (4:00 ET Kickoffs)
Dallas Cowboys (-3) vs. San Francisco 49ers
Mr. Romo - oh how you make my blood pressure rise. It's no secret, I'm a big believer of this Dallas Cowboys team this year. I think that they have all the pieces in place, but they just find a way to lose the big games. Last week was no different as Romo had two Costly turnovers that allowed the Jets to literally take the game away in the final moments. Maybe I'm a little too emotionally invested in the Cowboys (I just made a trade this week to acquire RB Felix Jones in my big money Fantasy League). But I just don't see this team losing another game especially against a team from the NFC West. Take the Cowboys and pray that Romo doesn't F this one up.
Houston Texans (-3) vs. Miami Dolphins
Arian Foster is expected to play for the Texans this week. This will definitely help the Texans and Fantasy owners - but I'll be going with the Dolphins in this one. I think the Dolphins look like an improved team. The "White Vick" aka Chad Henne, moved the ball all over the field (416 yds passing) and even used his legs (59 yds rushing) last week against the Patriots. I like what he showed and will be taking the Dolphins plus the points in this one.
San Diego Chargers vs. New England Patriots (-7)
Now this is a foooootball game... The Patriots were on fire last week. Both of these teams tout great quarterbacks with weapons all over the field. The over/under in this game is currently 53.5 points so we should be in for some high fantasy numbers. I missed the premier of the Bill Belichick documentary on NFL Films, but I'm sure the gist of it goes like this: Bill Belichick is an awesome coach. In the Patriots first home game of the season, I'll be riding with the Pats to handle the visiting Chargers convincingly.
Cincinnati Bengals vs. Denver Broncos (-3.5)
Another awful game. I just don't see how the Bengals will be able to go on the road two weeks in a row and come away with two wins. Denver should be able to bounce back from that slugfest with the Raiders, and who knows maybe Tim Tebow will grace us with his presence. I'll take the Broncos to win at home.

Monday Night Football - 8:40 PM EST Start
St. Louis Rams vs. New York Giants (-6)
Nothing like a battle of 0-1 teams on MNF! Great news for the Rams that QB Sam Bradford is expected to play and will not miss any time. That's a huge relief for a team that looks like they will be without its star RB Steven Jackson, leading receiver last year WR Danny Amendola, and starting CB Ronald Bartell. I know that the Giants are dinged up too - but I still think that they will win this low-scoring game. I also fully expect Eli Manning to give us this face at least once throughout the night. Because of that face, I'll be taking the Rams with the points on the road.
Enjoy week 2 of the season!
