Hi everyone! Today I want to talk about the week 1 predictions I made last week. I got some of them right and some of them wrong. I predicted that the 49ers would beat the Lions 26-21, but the final score was 41-33 49ers over the Lions. I predicted that the Cardinals would beat the Titans 28-20, but the final score was not even close! The final score was 38-13 Cardinals over the Titans. The defensive end for the Cardinals Chandler Jones had 5 sacks against the Titans and he won the defensive player of the week! Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray threw 4 touchdown passes. Two of them were wide receivers DeAndre Hopkins and Christian Kirk. The running game was so much better because of the addition to Rodney Hudson, a former Raider center that got traded. The whole Cardinals team played extremely well by not allowing Derrick Henry the running back to break free like he always does! I predicted that the Broncos would beat the Giants 24-17, but the final score was 27-13 Broncos over the Giants.
I predicted that the Chiefs would beat the Browns 34-31, but the final score was 33-29 Chiefs over the Browns. It looked like the Browns were going to win the game, but they started imploding at the worse time. I predicted that the Rams would beat the Bears 23-16, but the final score was 34-14 Rams over the Bears. I predicted that the Colts would beat the Seahawks 30-27, but the final score was 28-16 Seahawks over the Colts. Yeah, I should not have underestimate the Seahawks because they are still a good team. I predicted that the Packers would beat the Saints 37-29, but the final score was not even close. The final score was 38-3 Saints over the Packers. The offense and defense did not play good at all for the Packers as the Saints offense and defense smothered the Packers team. I was not expecting a blowout from this game. I predicted that the Ravens would beat the Raiders 31-24, but the final score was 33-27 Raiders over the Ravens. The Ravens had the opportunity to go down the field and win the game after the Raiders turned the ball over at the goal line after the touchdown was taking away, but the Raiders got another chance and this time they were able to score a touchdown in overtime to seal the game.
So based off my predictions, I got 5 out of 8 picks correct!
Now let’s move on to week 2 NFL predictions, shall we?! The first game I will predict is the 49ers @Eagles game. I think that this will be a good game. The Eagles demolished the Falcons last week 32-6 and the 49ers pretty much demolished the Lions defense by scoring 41 points on them. I think the Eagles will win in a close game 27-21 over the 49ers. The next game I will predict is the Broncos @Jaguars game. I think the Broncos should win this game pretty easily 34-17 over the Jags. I think the quarterback Trevor Lawrence is still learning in the NFL and I think the Broncos will be a little bit better this year. The next game I will predict is the Rams @Colts game. The Rams are coming off with the win over the Bears and the Colts are coming off with the loss to the Seahawks. I think the Rams will be able to pull this one off over the Colts 29-17 because the Colts did not look all that good vs the Seahawks and the Rams can put up a lot of points against anybody in the league. The next game I will predict is the Vikings @Cardinals game. The Cardinals are coming off with a big win and performance over the Titans and the Vikings are coming off with a loss in overtime to the Bengals. The Vikings have a running back name Dalvin Cook who can be a shifty guy and break tackles. This is going to be another test for the Cardinals rush defense and then you have 2 wide receivers including Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson. The Cardinals just need to pressure the quarterback Kirk Cousins to put him off his spot and the defense needs to stop the running game of the Vikings like they did last week against the Titans. A former corner back for the Cardinals Patrick Peterson will be returning to State Farm Stadium to play his former team. I assume that he will be trying to cover DeAndre Hopkins. I do think that the Cardinals will find a way to pull this game off over the Vikings 31-17. The Red Sea basically will distract the Vikings offense by trying to make them lose badly because they’re will be a lot of Cardinal fans in the stands. The next game I will predict is the Titans @Seahawks game. I do think that the Seahawks will come on top of the Titans 34-23. I think the Titans may get their running game working again, but I don’t think it may be enough to beat the Seahawks because Russell Wilson is pretty good at finishing games by scoring long touchdown drives.
The next game I will predict is Chiefs @Ravens on Sunday Night Football. I think that this will be a great game, but the last time these 2 teams played, the Ravens were getting blown out by the Chiefs. I don’t think that it will be a blowout, but I think the Chiefs might be able to pull this one off barely over the Ravens 33-27. The Chiefs offense is just too fast for any defense to stop them and they are desperate to going back to the Super Bowland winning it again because they got whooped by the Super Bowl Champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31-9 last season. The last game I will predict is the Lions @Packers game. The Lions have not won in Lambeau Field since 2015 and the Packers are coming off a real disappointing loss to the Saints. I do think the Packers will rebound over the Lions 36-20 because I think that Aaron Rodgers the quarterback will be shredding the Lions defense and he is angry and desperate to get his first win of the season. The next game I will predict is the Cowboys @Chargers game. I think the Chargers may pull this one off over the Cowboys in a close game 23-17.
So, what do you guys think about the week 2 NFL picks?! I would love to hear lots of comments, opinions, thoughts, concerns, or questions down below!
