NFL Picks Week 2: What Game Will Be the Upset of the Week?

The first week of the 2011 NFL season is in the books and as fun and exciting as each game was, it’s time to focus on Week 2. Teams like the Philadelphia Eagles, New England Patriots, Baltimore Ravens and Green Bay Packers (among others) all started the season off with a check mark in the win column, as were expected.

Among the unexpected wins, Week 1 embraced teams such as the Buffalo Bills and Houston Texans who both won their games in dominating fashion.

Below are my predictions on each NFL game for the second week of the season, what teams do I see continuing their winning ways who won’t, and who will regress in Week 2? Read on to find out!
