NFL Week 2 Picks for Every Game

Athlon's experts predict winners for every game, including an AFC Championship Game rematch between the Patriots and Jaguars

Week 1 of the NFL season is in the books and as is typical, it featured a little bit of everything. There was a tie, impressive debuts (such as Khalil Mack in a Bears uniform), some welcome sights (Andrew Luck back on the field), several performances that are best left forgotten (Bills vs. Ravens, Lions vs. Jets, etc.), and a Titans-Dolphins game that was delayed twice by lightning and took more than seven hours to play.


NFL Picks Week 2: Aaron RodgersThere also was an unbelievable second-half comeback orchestrated by Aaron Rodgers, who was basically playing on one leg; while Sam Darnold made the most of becoming the youngest quarterback to start an NFL game. So what does Week 2 hold? Fans of teams like the Jets, Ravens, Buccaneers and Redskins are hoping for more of the same. While teams like the Bills, Lions, Cardinals, Saints and Cowboys are more than happy to turn the page and shift the focus to the next game.


The Week 2 slate opens with an AFC North matchup on Thursday night between the aforementioned Ravens and Bengals, who also got off to a solid start by beating Luck and the Colts on the road. Other divisional pairings include Panthers vs. Falcons, Texans vs. Titans, Raiders vs. Broncos, and Giants vs. Cowboys.


The most important one, however, could be the Vikings and Packers' get-together at Lambeau. Of course the most important storyline leading into this one is Rodgers' health. He got the job done against the Bears, but Minnesota's defense is among the league's best and boasts a solid secondary that works well in tandem with a loaded front four.


But arguably the most intriguing game on the Week 2 schedule is New England's trip to Jacksonville. Both teams took care of business in Week 1 but you know the Jaguars had this AFC Championship Game rematch circled as soon as the schedule was announced.


So which teams will come out on top in every NFL game in Week 2? Athlon's own Rob Doster (AthlonDoster) and John Gworek (JohnGworek), along with contributor Bryan Fischer (BryanDFischer), predict the winners for every game this week:
