5 NFL Teams That Will Definitely Win In Week 2
NFL Week 2: 5 Teams That Will Definitely Win
The NFL season started with a bang, a flurry of exciting games and even some surprising upsets.
Week one began in great style on Thursday, opening night, as the defending Super Bowl champs, the Baltimore Ravens, faced off against Peyton Manning and the high-powered Denver Broncos. I think many people realized the Ravens defense was weaker than it was in its championship run, but I doubt most thought the Broncos offense was going to post a record seven passing touchdowns.
The rest of week one did not disappoint either as there were multiple results that caught fans and analysts alike off guard. One such game was Monday night’s second contest featuring the San Diego Chargers and the Houston Texans. The questionable Chargers were set to face one of the NFL’s best defenses from 2012 and most had this game penciled in as a Texans win early on. Alas, Philip Rivers and the Chargers gave Houston a run for their money. Only 17 unanswered fourth quarter points allowed the Texans to scrape out a 31-28 win.
Similarly, the Oakland Raiders battled well against the Indianapolis Colts in a surprising four-point loss and the Buffalo Bills gave the New England Patriots all they could handle as the Patriots only won by two points.
The most surprising game of the first week came from MetLife Stadium where the seemingly discombobulated New York Jets managed to upset the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a one-point victory that featured a last-second, game winning field goal.
I can’t promise that week two will have as many interesting games, but there will certainly be some good ones. Without further ado, I present my slideshow of the five NFL teams that I can guarantee will win in week two.
San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks
Believe it or not, I think the Seattle Seahawks will upset the San Francisco 49ers in week two. You might think I am crazy, but hear me out. The first thing the Seahawks have going for them is a strong defense which will be crucial in order to stop the 49ers’ potent offense. Colin Kaepernick is very similar to Cam Newton who the Seahawks successfully shut down in week one. Secondly, the Seahawks were a perfect 8-0 at home in 2012 in what is known as one of the loudest and craziest environments in all NFL stadiums. Although the 49ers sneaked by with a 13-6 win in San Francisco last season, the Seahawks blew their divisional foes out at home 42-13. Expect another win for Seattle this week.
New York Jets at New England Patriots
No matter what the Jets did last week against the Bucs, the chances Geno Smith can pull off the upset against Tom Brady and the Patriots is slim to none. The Pats don’t boast the world’s best defense, but it will suffice for the Jets who surely will not get lucky two weeks in a row.
Washington Redskins at Green Bay Packers
The Washington Redskins almost pulled off a comeback against the Philadelphia Eagles, but the Redskins will not be able to limit Aaron Rodgers and the high-powered Green Bay Packers offense. Further, the Packer defense is much more physical than the Eagles and will be able to shut down Robert Griffin III and the Skins’ offense. Look for Green Bay to win easily at home.
Denver Broncos at New York Giants
The New York Giants played a Sunday night thriller against the Dallas Cowboys which resulted in a loss for Eli Manning and his team. Manning looked like both Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in that game, but probably will not struggle in consecutive weeks. Nevertheless, expect big brother Peyton to come away with the win as the Giants’ defense will not be able to contain Demaryius Thomas, Julius Thomas, Eric Decker and Wes Welker.
That does it for my slideshow. Please comment below which games you agree or disagree with and any other teams which you think have a week two win locked up. Thanks for reading!
