The FGR's Week 2 NFL Picks

We're going to handle the NFL picks a bit differently this year. Some weeks there will be written nuggets to go along with each game but other weeks are going to be devoted to more substantial writing so the individual game analysis (to the extent you can all it "analysis") is going to suffer. This is going to be one of those weeks because I have a few things that I need to get off my chest about the Ray Rice situation. Look for that in the near future but, in the meantime, here are this week's picks. I actually recovered a bit from last Sunday's blood bath with a sweep on Monday and a Thursday night winner so I currently stand at 8-9. We can build on that.

Some key elements of the old format will
remain intact. I'm not dead inside (yet).
Carolina by 2.5 over Detroit: The Pick - Lions
Buffalo Pick 'em v. Miami: The Pick - Dolphins
Washington by 6 over Jacksonville: The Pick - Jaguars
Tennessee by 3.5 over Dallas: The Pick - Titans
Arizona by 2.5 at N.Y. Giants: The Pick - Giants
New England by 6 at Minnesota: The Pick - Vikings
New Orleans by 6.5 at Cleveland: The Pick - Saints
Cincinnati by 5.5 over Atlanta: The Pick - Falcons
Tampa Bay by 6 over St. Louis: The Pick - Bucs
Seattle by 6 at San Diego: The Pick - Seahawks
Houston by 3 at Oakland: The Pick - Texans
Green Bay by 8.5 over N.Y. Jets: The Pick - Packers
Denver by 12 over Kansas City: The Pick - Chiefs
San Francisco by 6.5 over Chicago: The Pick - 49ers
Indianapolis by 3 over Philadelphia: The Pick - Colts

Last Week's Record: 7-9
