NFL Week 2 Top Picks

NFL Week 2 Top Picks

The first week of the 2020 NFL season is officially in the books and if you are ready for NFL Week 2 action keep reading for the must bet games everyone needs to target!

NFL Week 2 Top Picks

Atlanta Falcons at Dallas Cowboys

Two of the best offenses in the NFL clash when the Falcons battle the Cowboys. Last season, Atlanta’s offense averaged 379.7 yards per, ranking fifth in the league. The Cowboys averaged about 21 points last season. Dallas’ offense will be better in 2020 than it was in 2019. The Falcons’ offense should be better as well. So, expect a close and exciting matchup.

Minnesota Vikings at Indianapolis Colts

The Colts and Vikings run similar offensive and defensive packages. Both teams will look to establish the run. Neither squad has a true advantage except, maybe, at running back where Dalvin Cook is a slightly better player than any RB on the Colts’ roster. Some may argue that Philip Rivers is the much better quarterback than Kirk Cousins. Either way, this is a Week 2 game that could come down to the final possession. 

L.A. Rams at Philadelphia Eagles

Football fans should love watching this matchup. One of the top defenses in the NFL, the L.A. Rams, goes up against one of the most creative play-calling coaches, Doug Pederson, and one of the league’s top quarterbacks in Carson Wentz. If the Eagles defense comes together in this, they might beat the Rams by a touchdown. That could be their lone touchdown unless the Rams defense lays an egg. 

Denver Broncos at Pittsburgh Steelers

The two squads are close in talent. Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger could have a field day, though. The Broncos will be without Von Miller, their best defensive player. Without Miller pressuring Ben, he should find it easy to connect with one of his talented tight-ends, Vance McDonald and Eric Ebron as well as top WR JuJu Smith-Schuster. Also, the Broncos could have trouble stopping Steelers running back James Connor.  

Kansas City Chiefs at L.A. Chargers

In Week 1, the Chiefs proved they’re still the best team in the NFL. Kansas City beat Houston 34-20. But the Chargers have a stronger defense than what Houston puts onto the field. LAC’s defense will stop the run, which means Patrick Mahomes must win this one with his arm. We know he can do that. The Chargers didn’t lose either of their games last season by more than 10 points and, again, the Bolts’ defense is better this season, though.  

Baltimore Ravens at Houston Texans

The Ravens figure to rock the Texans, right? Not so fast. Baltimore’s offense is terrific, but Houston’s defense played much better in the game versus than Chiefs than many believe it did. Eventually, Mahomes and the offense got it going to post 34 points. Deshaun Watson rallied the Texans late to cut the lead. On Sunday, David Johnson’s rushing ability could keep the ball out of the hands of Lamar Jackson. That gives the Texans a chance.    

New England Patriots at Seattle Seahawks

Patriots versus Seahawks projects as one of the closest Week 2 games. Seahawks will start the better quarterback. The Patriots have the better defense and better coach. But if it comes down to the final offensive series for each team, Russell Wilson gets the edge over Cam Newton, which makes the Seahawks the squad to consider backing. 

New Orleans Saints at Las Vegas Raiders

This will be the City of Las Vegas’ first-ever professional football team game. Don’t expect the Raiders to wait for Drew Brees to carve them up. If Jon Gruden has his way, Josh Jacobs will rush for 200 yards and Brees and the Saints will have the ball for 15 minutes in a 60-minute game. This one should be exciting even if the new stadium is at quarter capacity.
