OK so the first week of the NFL season seemed easier to pick than it was.  Regardless, I still managed a winning record, certainly nothing to write home about though.

I shouldn’t even mention it in this post, but what the hell…

Last week: 9-7
Season: 9-7

Week 2

(Home team in all CAPS)

Sunday, Sept 19
ATLANTA over Arizona
Baltimore over CINCINNATI
Kansas City over CLEVELAND
DALLAS over Chicago
Philadelphia over DETROIT
GREEN BAY over Buffalo
TENNESSEE over Pittsburgh
MINNESOTA over Miami
CAROLINA over Tampa Bay
DENVER over Seattle
OAKLAND over St. Louis
New England over NY JETS
SAN DIEGO over Jacksonville
Houston over WASHINGTON
NY Giants over INDIANAPOLIS<—-upset of the week

Monday, Sept 20
New Orléans over SAN FRANCISCO

Reasoning behind my upset of the week:

The Giants aren’t earth movers defensively and I do expect Peyton Manning to have a field day, just like Week 1 against the Texans, BUT I believe that if the Colts are going to contend this year they simply cannot allow their defense to be a sieve like it was in week 1.  The Giants have very good running backs (Jacobs & Bradshaw) and a, potentially, exceptional passing attack.  If they can hold onto the ball that is.
