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
