Not So Expert Picks: Week Two Edition
Buy Panthers Tickets
Hey sports fans, T-Bone, Bruce and Chris here with our picks for the NFL slate this weekend. We’re going to keep track of these for bragging rights, so we’ll keep you updated each week with who’s in the lead and who doesn’t know as much as they think they may.
After one week here are the standings, T-Bone 10-6, Bruce 9-7, and Chris 8-8. Here are our picks for week two.
Thursday Night Game
Bears @ Packers: Just like Chris’ picks this game was an ugly one. T-Bone and Chris pick up an early win with Green Bay, while Bruce had Chicago.
Chiefs @ Bills: Last week we all thought the Bills looked bad, so we are all taking Kansas City, sweep it.
Browns @ Bengals: Cincinnati should have no problem handling the Browns on in the battle of Ohio. All three of us are taking the Bengals.
Vikings @ Colts: Both teams are coming off of losses from last week, Bruce and T-Bone like Indy to be 1-1 come Monday. Chris is going with the Vikings.
Saints @ Panthers: This is going to be a dog fight to grab some footing in the NFC South. Chris and Bruce like Cats to bounce back. T-Bone is going with the Saints to come marching in.
Texans @ Jaguars: In a game that we expect to showcase two of the best running backs in the NFL, MJD and Arian Foster, everybody is taking the Texans to come out on top.
Raiders @ Dolphins: The Raiders had some trouble getting the running game going late last Monday night. If they are going to take care of business in South Beach they will have to make some from for Darren McFadden. All three of us think that will happen and are taking the Raiders.
Cardinals @ Patriots: The Cardinals could be one of the worst teams in the league and the Pats could be one of the best. No questions here, New England.
Buccaneers @ Giants: Tampa took advantage of the holes in the Panther defense last weekend, the Giants showed quite a few holes themselves last week. We all expect the Giants to fix that this week though.
Ravens @ Eagles: Michael Vick threw four interceptions and was still able to come away with a win; he could face a similar problem this week with Baltimore coming to town. T-Bone is taking the home team Eagles, while Chris and Bruce both like the Ravens.
Redskins @ Rams: RGIII was quite impressive in his debut last weekend. Chris and Bruce are buying the hype and taking the Skins. T-Bone isn’t a hundred percent sold and he is going with the Rams this week.
Cowboys @ Seahawks: How bout them Cowboys last week? Dallas looked good enough last week to get the nod from Bruce and T-Bone. Chris is taking the Seahawks and their twelfth man for the win.
Jets @ Steelers: The Jets were clearly playing opossum in the preseason, as they scored 48 points in their season opener. The awaken Jets are enough to convince Bruce, but Chris and T-Bone like the Steelers in this AFC matchup.
Titans @ Chargers: Chris Johnson of the Titans decided not to show up last week sort of like Chris Johnson of WFNZ didn’t show up with his picks. It’s yet to be seen if either Chris will show up this week so we are all taking the Chargers.
Sunday Night Game
Lions @ 49ers: This game has become known as the “handshake bowl” after the coaches’ not so warm embrace last year. Well there will no warm embrace between the three of us this week as well, Chris and T-Bone are backing the 49ers, and Bruce is shaking hands with the Lions.
Monday Night Game
Broncos @ Falcons: Monday night is going to be a shootout between these two quarterbacks. Bruce and T-Bone are picking the Falcons and Chris is picking the Broncos.
