NFL Predictions: Who will win in Week 2?

Cincinnati Bengals beat writer Jay Morrison offers his predictions for Week 2 of NFL games.

Cleveland Browns (0-1) at Baltimore Ravens (1-0)

The Ravens rarely lose at home, the Browns rarely win … anywhere.

Pick: Ravens 23, Browns 17

Chicago Bears (0-1) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-0)

The Buccaneers will have gone 17 days without playing, but still, it’s the Bears.

Pick: Buccaneers 31, Bears 20

Minnesota Vikings (1-0) at Pittsburgh Steelers (1-0)

Don’t be fooled by the Steelers’ lackluster opener, they’re a different team at home.

Pick: Steelers 24, Vikings 16

New England Patriots (0-1) at New Orleans Saints (0-1)

The last time the Patriots started 0-2 was 2001, a year that ironically ended in New Orleans with their first Super Bowl championship.

Pick: Patriots 35, Saints 20

›› Two more Bengals return to full practice participation

Philadelphia Eagles (1-0) at Kansas City Chiefs (1-0)

Brutal start to the schedule for the Eagles with back-to-back road games.

Pick: Chiefs 28, Eagles 23

Tennessee Titans (0-1) at Jacksonville Jaguars (1-0)

Are the Jaguars for real? Is Bigfoot?

Pick: Titans 21, Jaguars 16

Arizona Cardinals (0-1) at Indianapolis Colts (0-1)

Even without David Johnson, the Cardinals should handle the hapless Colts.

Pick: Cardinals 27, Colts 13

›› Pacman plans to address teammates about what he saw Sunday

Buffalo Bills (1-0) at Carolina Panthers (1-0)

The Bills are coming off a season-opening win, but the Panthers aren’t the Jets

Pick: Panthers 28, Bills 17

New York Jets (0-1) at Oakland Raiders (1-0)

The Raiders beat a good team on the road. Imagine what they’ll do to a bad one at home.

Pick: Raiders 37, Jets 10

Miami Dolphins (0-0) at Los Angeles Chargers (0-1)

There’s no hurricane in LA. Or Chargers fans. Or home-field advantage.

Pick: Dolphins 24, Chargers 20

San Francisco 49ers (0-1) at Seattle Seahawks (0-1)

The Seahawks have won six straight and eight of nine vs. their division rivals.

Pick: Seahawks 34, 49ers 13

Washington Redskins (0-1) at Los Angeles Rams (1-0)

The Rams haven’t started 2-0 since 2001, but the Redskins aren’t good enough to keep that streak active.

Pick: Rams 23, Redskins 20

Dallas Cowboys (1-0) at Denver Broncos (1-0)

The last time the Cowboys won in Denver, Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott hadn’t been born.

Pick: Broncos 24, Cowboys 23

Green Bay Packers (1-0) at Atlanta Falcons (1-0) Sunday night

After shaking off their Super Bowl hangover last week, the Falcons christen their new stadium in style.

Pick: Falcons 31, Packers 27

›› Bengals stats in opener were historically bad

Detroit Lions (1-0) at New York Giants (0-1) Monday night

No way the Giants offense can look that bad two weeks in a row.

Pick: Giants 28, Lions 20

Houston Texans (0-1) at Cincinnati Bengals (1-0) Thursday night

There could be more sacks than points in this one, but give the edge to the home team.

Pick: Bengals 16, Texans 10

Last Week: 10-4

Season: 10-4

When looking at this year's Hall of Fame ballot, three names that sprung to mind were Jonah Keri, Dan Le Batard and Ryan Thibodaux. None of them is actually on the ballot as they weren't players.
