Predictions for Every NFL Game in Week 2

Matt Ryan NFL Picks: Week 2

Matt Ryan NFL Picks: Week 2

NFL Picks: Steelers

Week 1 of the NFL season is in the books and everything went according to plan, right? Well someone forgot to tell Kansas City (beat New England on the road) or Jacksonville (won at Houston), among the many other opening week surprises.

And as exciting as Week 1 was, Week 2 could prove to be even more entertaining at least in part based on some of the matchups. For starters, several head coaches and players will be facing familiar faces as Buffalo (head coach Sean McDermott) heads to Carolina, New England (Brandin Cooks) is in New Orleans, Chicago (Mike Glennon) travels to Tampa Bay, and the Los Angeles Rams (head coach Sean McVay) host Washington.

If that’s not enough there’s also an NFC Championship Game rematch with Green Bay at Atlanta on Sunday night, Dallas heads to Denver, and Minnesota takes on Pittsburgh in another intriguing NFC vs. AFC pairing.

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:
