Week 1 of the NFL season gave us a great preview for a wild season, and Week 2 kicks off right where Week 1 left off.
#3. Minnesota Vikings @ Indianapolis Colts
12 pm FOX
We talked about this game in our weekly podcast, and my boy Ice said it best: start any fantasy player in this game and TAKE THE OVER! These two desperate 0-1 teams have offenses that are capable of dropping 35+ whenever, and their defenses will just sit and watch. I predict a Minnesota upset and a shootout for very fun game to watch.
#2. Baltimore Ravens @ Houston Texans
3:25 on CBS
Two of the NFL's premier quarterbacks going up against each other will always be a must-watch game. The Texans look a little different than last year without their top wideout DeAndre Hopkins, and I think it will be very obvious in this one. The Ravens offense is going to be hard to stop, but the Texans may have a tough time finding the endzone frequently. Baltimore wins.
#1. New England Patriots @ Seattle Seahawks
7:20 on NBC
Set anything aside for this one: Sunday scaries, homework, GONE. I’m so excited for this game because it showcases two of the best coaches in the NFL, Russell Wilson against Cam Newton, and more. It's not the typical Sunday Night Football in Seattle with earthquake-level crowd noise, but it will be a big test for this Patriots team led by Cam Newton. I was so tempted to pick New England in this one, but I think Russell Wilson will defend his home turf and his MVP candidacy.
