Here are my Week 2 picks. I’ll try posting before the games next week, but you’ll be able to tell that I didn’t make any changes. I swear I watch football. MP.
Date & Time Favorite Spread Underdog
9/16 1:00 ET At NY Giants -7 Tampa Bay
Michael Strahan (ex-Giant) is joining Kelly Ripa as her permanent co-host. Sooooo, ya – the Giants have momentum.
9/16 1:00 ET At New England -13.5 Arizona
Zoltan Mesko (Patriots punter) forgets which foot he kicks the ball with after two straight games of not punting.
9/16 1:00 ET Minnesota -3 At Indianapolis
Andrew Luck (AKA “The Architect”) questions the structural integrity of “The House That Peyton Built.”
9/16 1:00 ET New Orleans -2.5 At Carolina
Drew Brees’ baby is angry about last week’s loss to the ‘Skins. Very angry.
9/16 1:00 ET At Buffalo -3 Kansas City
My one fault is that I’m a Matt Cassell fan. And I eat way too many M&Ms.
9/16 1:00 ET At Philadelphia -2.5 Baltimore
Ray Lewis says he lost 30 lbs in the offseason. I’m not sure if the two are connected, but he is also now the prime celebrity endorser of Shake Weight.
9/16 1:00 ET Oakland -2 At Miami
Both of these teams had awful season openers; since Miami is in the Patriots division, they have my blessing to continue losing.
9/16 1:00 ET At Cincinnati -7 Cleveland
In the “Battle of the Ugliest Team Colors”, the team whose mascot is an endangered species gets the nod. Ironyyyy.
9/16 1:00 ET Houston -7 At Jacksonville
Jacksonville lost its dignity last week after Minnesota beat them out. They are already playing the role of “The Spoiler”, and it’s only Week Two.
9/16 4:05 ET Dallas -3 At Seattle
As much as it pains me to pick a Romo-led team in any contest, Seattle did lose to Arizona last week. Arizona.
9/16 4:05 ET Washington -3.5 At St. Louis
RGIII forgets to wear his lucky socks and plays like he lost his mojo.
9/16 4:25 ET At Pittsburgh -5.5 NY Jets
I still don’t have any confidence in Mark Sanchez, even if he is dating Eva Longoria.
9/16 4:25 ET At San Diego -6.5 Tennessee
The replacement refs rally around Tennessee after blowing many calls last week in the Pats game.
9/16 8:25 ET At San Francisco -7 Detroit
This is a rematch of the infamous post-game handshake between Jim Schwartz and Harbaugh. My money’s still on Harbaugh and the Niners.
9/17 8:35 ET At Atlanta -3 Denver
Atlanta has Asante Samuel now, who has made a living off of Peyton Manning’s interceptions.
