Spiars' Quick Picks resulted in a 14-2 record last week; the only thing that surprised me was the epic failure of the Houston Texans. Picking Miami over Atlanta was one of my predicted upsets; unfortunately, upset picks don't always pay off.
Green Bay Packers (1-0) vs. Cincinnati Bengals (0-1)—Green Bay Packers
Although Green Bay's offense was nullified against Chicago, their defense truly shined with four interceptions on a supposed "great passing attack."
Green Bay's defense will surely shut down Cincinnati's offense, considering the Bengals struggled to put up points against Denver's relatively weak defense. Also expect Aaron Rodgers and Ryan Grant to put up some numbers against Cincinnati.
Denver Broncos (1-0) vs. Cleveland Browns (0-1)—Cleveland Browns
All of the predicted woes of the Denver Broncos showed against Cincinnati. The offense struggled behind Kyle Orton. The defense appeared solid, but against Cincinnati, that is no outstanding feat.
Cleveland did well against a stout Minnesota defense; expect Brady Quinn to find his grove against Denver. Also consider that Denver struggled against Cincinnati's defense; Cleveland is notch above.
New York Giants (1-0) at Dallas Cowboys (1-0)—New York Giants
Both teams looked impressive in their last game. New York's defense continue to look great, stymieing Washington through out the game. Tony Romo deflated the Buccaneer's come back chances early in the fourth quarter.
Although Romo seems poised to have a true break out season, New York's defense will continue to shine behind the constant pressure of Justin Tuck and his fellow defensive linemen.
