Predicting The Entire NFL Season: Week 2


In our last post we started the NFL season a few months early, setting out to make some way-too-early predictions for 2014′s first week.

Still no word from Kate Upton, so we will press ahead with Week 2.

First, here’s a look at our projected standings after Week 1:

AFC EASTWL
New England Patriots10
Buffalo Bills10
New York Jets10
Miami Dolphins01
AFC NORTHWL
Pittsburgh Steelers10
Baltimore Ravens10
Cincinnati Bengals01
Cleveland Browns01
AFC SOUTHWL
Houston Texans10
Indianapolis Colts01
Tennessee Titans01
Jacksonville Jaguars01
AFC WESTWL
Kansas City Chiefs10
Denver Broncos10
San Diego Chargers01
Oakland Raiders01
NFC EASTWL
Philadelphia Eagles10
New York Giants10
Washington Redskins01
Dallas Cowboys01
NFC NORTHWL
Detroit Lions01
Green Bay Packers01
Minnesota Vikings01
Chicago Bears01
NFC SOUTHWL
New Orleans Saints10
Carolina Panthers10
Tampa Bay Buccaneers01
Atlanta Falcons01
NFC WESTWL
Seattle Seahawks10
St. Louis Rams10
San Francisco 49ers10
Arizona Cardinals10

On to the action…

Steelers @ Ravens: This is our lovely reminder that we’ll be dealing with Thursday night games all season long. Baltimore 21, Pittsburgh 10

Dolphins @ Bills: As noted in our last post, I really believe the Bills are trending upward. As Chris Berman likes to say, they’ve circled the wagon in Buffalo. Buffalo 26, Miami 17

Jaguars @ Redskins: Washington will get some momentum back after falling in their opener. As for Jacksonville, I figure they’re another two years away from really making a play. They’re going to take lumps this year and are probably better off doing so for their longterm success. Washington 32, Jacksonville 16

Cowboys @ Titans: I’m not feeling good things for either of these two teams, but Dallas was a better road team last year. Dallas 24, Tennessee 21

Cardinals @ Giants: Arizona was a team that probably should have made they playoffs last season. They’re going to make a push early in 2014, but a cross-country trip in Week 2 will be tough. New York Giants 27, Arizona 21

Patriots @ Vikings: Tough early test for New England, but these guys are going to have a serious bounceback campaign. New England 30, Minnesota 24

Saints @ Browns: Everything tells me New Orleans will win this game, but for some reason… Cleveland 28, New Orleans 24

Falcons @ Bengals: I like the Bengals to make a big push this season. It starts here. Cincinnati 34, Atlanta 20

Lions @ Panthers: Detroit is another one of those teams that didn’t do enough in the offseason. They’ll start realizing that soon enough. Carolina 19, Detroit 12

Rams @ Buccaneers: St. Louis is the beneficiary of a soft early-season schedule as they go to 2-0. St. Louis 29, Tampa Bay 13

Seahawks @ Chargers: Seattle is too good a team to lose a game on the West Coast to any team not named San Francisco. Seattle 38, San Diego 20

Texans @ Raiders: The Houston Texans at 2-0? Yikes. Houston 22, Oakland 20

Jets @ Packers: Michael Vick against the Packers. We’ve seen this movie before in Philly. Now it premiers in New York. Green Bay 23, New York Jets 13

Chiefs @ Broncos: Peyton Manning versus Andy Reid. Sorry, Big Red. Denver 40, Kansas City 17

Bears @ 49ers: This might be a rough season for the Bears. And the 49ers, well, they’re pretty good and are going to be right there in the hunt again. San Francisco 21, Chicago 12

And, finally…

Eagles @ Colts: I like the early part of the Eagles’ schedule, with the exception of this game. I have Indy coming off a loss, and I believe that team is too good to be 0-2. This should be a good game, but the Birds will come up short. Indianapolis 33, Philadelphia 30
