It’s Week 2 NFL picks with the FanSided staff, and we are pumped to be mostly correct (hopefully).
Alright, some things went well last week and some went poorly with our picks. Incredibly, our NFL expert Matt Verderame went 7-9, and if he has another week without at least 10 wins, he’s fired. As for the rest of the crew, we saw strong efforts out of most, including a 10-6 start for social media personality and superfan, Mia Khalifa.
As for this week, these are the picks from our staff and the Sports Asylum. If you aren’t familiar with all of the pickers, reference here for the descriptions of each.
Khalifa is the lone wolf going with the Tennessee Titans, who fell in their season opener at home to the Minnesota Vikings. Meanwhile, the crew is unanimously going with the Denver Broncos to beat up on the Indianapolis Colts, sans for Jim Cavan and the Asylum. Both of them are going to regret that decision.
We did see five games get picked unanimously. The Seattle Seahawks, New England Patriots, Carolina Panthers, Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers are all expected to roll. Pittsburgh is the only surprise of the bunch, considering the Cincinnati Bengals won the AFC North last year and won in Pittsburgh.
None of the games were picked evenly, with the Kansas City Chiefs, Chicago Bears and Dallas Cowboys getting the lowest majority at 60 percent.
