Here are 10 predictions and things to look out for as the 2014 NFL preseason moves on to a second week of action.

10. Seattle Seahawks to Continue Super Bowl Hangover

In Week 1of the preseason, the Seahawks repeated their Super Bowl matchup but failed to come up with the same result, losing to the Broncos. They face the San Diego Chargers in Week 2, and I predict them to continue the poor start. It's never easy coming off of a Super Bowl Victory.

9. Broncos at 49ers the Game to Watch

This is a game of two great franchises. The Broncos have an incredible offense, and the 49ers keep improving. Expect to see some great football even if there aren't that many points scored.

8. Ryan Fitzpatrick 2 TDs vs. Falcons

Fitzpatrick has something to prove, plain and simple. He wants the Texans' starting spot, and he needs to start playing well if he wants to earn it. Two Touchdowns may be a stretch, but that is the target he will have in place. He will do everything to reach that goal.

7. No Brady Again

Tom Brady is the New England Patriots' offense. They rested him in Week 1, and I don't think coach Bill Belichick will want to risk getting his starting quarterback in Week 2 of the preseason.

6. Cleveland Browns Will Win

The Cleveland Browns lost a tight game against the Detroit Lions, and now they square up against the Redskins. I think Johnny Manziel will start and lead the Browns to victory.

5. Teddy Bridgewater to Outperfom Matt Cassel

Cassel and Bridgewater shared the starting job in preseason Week 1, and neither performed very well. However, now that Bridgewater has faced his first game of NFL football, he will be ready to put out his college level performances or closer to it than he did in Week 1.

4. New York Jets to Go 2-0

The New York Jets have the most underrated squad in the NFL. In preseason Week 1 they beat last season's AFC South champions, and I expect them to keep their roll going when they face the Bengals.

3. Green Bay Packers to Recover Loss

Green Bay Packers have an incredible offense with one of, if not the best quarterback in the NFL. They did suffer a poor defeat in preseason Week 1, but I expect them to bounce back at the St. Louis Rams.

2. Tennessee Titans to Scare New Orleans Saints

The Titans are the team that beat the Packers in Week 1. I think they will continue their good form, but they will fall just short of victory against the Saints while providing a scare.

1. Baltimore Ravens at Dallas Cowboys Will Be High Scoring

If history says anything about this game it says "POINTS" and lots of them. The last two meetings had over 50 points scored. In fact the last one had exactly 60 points scored, so if you want points tune in to this game.
