Pittsburgh Steelers at Tennessee Titans

Alex's Pick: Titans

Why:  Chris Johnson, Vince Young and Dennis Dixon.  Vince Young is a winner, Chris Johnson is electrifying and Dennis Dixon is too inconsistent to lead an offense.

Miami Dolphins at Minnesota Vikings

Alex's Pick: Vikings

Why:  Adrian Peterson.  He is a freak and could be in for a big day against the Dolphins.

Arizona Cardinals at Atlanta Falcons

Alex's Pick: Falcons

Why:  Matt Leinart.  After narrowly escaping the lowly Rams, the Cardinals' QB disaster will catch up with them sooner rather than later.

Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals

Alex's Pick: Ravens

Why:  Anquan Boldin.  The Ravens finally have a legitimate threat at receiver to go along with their strong run game and punishing defense.

Kansas City Chiefs at Cleveland Browns

Alex's Pick: Chiefs

Why:  Chiefs' rookies.  Dexter McCluster and Javier Arenas were huge for the Chiefs in week 1, so expect to see more of their explosiveness this week.  (Plus, they need to beat the lowly Browns for Keith's 10-6 prediction to come true!)

Chicago Bears at Dallas Cowboys

Alex's Pick: Cowboys

Why:  The Cowboys HAVE to play better than they did last week.

Philadelphia Eagles at Detroit Lions

Alex's Pick: Eagles

Why: Matt Stafford.  I had the Lions as the winner of this game until I thought about Matt Stafford's impact on the Lions' success.

Buffalo Bills at Green Bay Packers

Alex's Pick: Packers

Why: C.J. Spiller.  The fact that the Bills drafted a top-10 player who plays the position that they are deepest at shows the Bills are going nowhere.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Carolina Panthers

Alex's Pick: Panthers

Why:  Deangelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart.  The Panthers will run the ball all game this week.

Seattle Seahawks at Denver Broncos

Alex's Pick:  Seahawks

Why: Poodle Pete.  Pete Carroll could be pretty successful in his second NFL stint...the 'Hawks looked great last week while dominating the 49ers.

St. Louis Rams at Oakland Raiders

Alex's Pick: Rams

Why: Sam Bradford.  The #1 pick this year threw the ball over 50 times in his debut and did not look like a rookie at all.  Two of his three INTs were prayers, also known as good plays by him.

Houston Texans at Washington Redskins

Alex's Pick: Texans

Why:  Andre Johnson.  As dominant as Arian Foster was last week the Texans are a passing team.

New England Patriots at New York Jets

Alex's Pick: Patriots

Why:  Receivers under 25.  The Patriots have so much young talent at wide receiver.  Brady can spread the ball around very effectively, even against the Jets defense.

Jacksonville Jaguars at San Diego Chargers

Alex's Pick: Chargers

Why: Jaguars defense.  They won't be able to stop Rivers, Gates and Mathews.  (And hopefully Malcom Floyd, he's on my fantasy team...sleeper alert!)

New York Giants at Indianapolis Colts

Alex's Pick: Colts

Why: Peyton Manning.  Duh.

New Orleans Saints at San Francisco 49ers

Alex's Pick: Saints

Why: Saints defense.  The Saints are known for Drew Brees and their high-powered offense but their defense will shut down a 49ers offense that struggled against the Seahawks.
