NFL Picks Week 2: Which Week 1 Losers Are Ready to Step Up?

Week 1 of the NFL season was not one for the ordinary mind.

Things happened that nobody expected to happen, and some things that we expected to happen didn’t.

There were upsets, and there were calls that prevented upsets.

Offensive juggernauts stalled while some respected defenses didn’t quite live up to that billing.

All of the aforementioned added to the complexity and confusion of a week that saw the Dallas Cowboys lose on the road to Redskins by scoring only seven points, the Redskins beating the Cowboys without scoring an offensive touchdown, the Ravens and Jets combining for only 19 points, the Saints and Vikings taking turns punting the ball, and the Bengals laying a complete egg in New England. 

So as we gear up for Week 2, lets ponder a few teams who lost in Week 1 that should, or need to, win in Week 2. 

Granted, a 0-2 start doesn’t exactly disqualify you from playoff contention, but there are some teams in particular that will burn over a white-hot fire if they lose back-to-back games to start the season.

Here are a handful of teams to watch this weekend to see their response to Week 1 losses.
