NFL Week 2 Predictions

The NFL is back, and we saw plenty of intriguing week one matchups. The Bears and Packers debuted their defenses in a Thursday night showdown, while the Ravens, Chiefs, and Titans put up massive offensive numbers. The Browns and Steelers greatly underwhelmed, and the Eagles and Bills both led comebacks to secure victories. The Cardinals fought their way back from a deficit and forced a tie in overtime against the Lions. Week one offered many interesting storylines, but, again, it was only week one. Week two will show if week one was a fluke or a sign of things to come. Starting 0-2 is detrimental to early momentum, and the difference between 2-0, 1-1, and 0-2 is huge. Which teams will emerge victorious this week? Find out below:
