Use this as the open thread to discuss the afternoon games from week 2 of the NFL season.
4:05 PM EST
Buccaneers at Cardinals (-7): The Cardinals didn’t look great against the Patriots, so I think they’ll have a rebound game. That said, I think the Cardinals win, but I think the Buccaneers cover. Patriots will want the Cardinals to win for strength of schedule.
Seahawks (-6.5) at Rams: The Seahawks have a hobbled quarterback and the Rams always give them trouble. Then again, the Rams are the Rams. Seahawk will win and cover. The Patriots will play both teams later this year.
4:25 PM EST
Jaguars at Chargers (-3): The Chargers lost their best receiver and they’re favored? I think the Jaguars win this one walking away. The Patriots don’t really care which team wins because they’re likely competing for 3rd place in their respective divisions.
Falcons at Raiders (-5): The Falcons looked bad last week, so I wouldn’t be surprised if the Raiders won this one. Patriots would probably rather the Raiders win, too, to take the crown from the Broncos.
Colts at Broncos (-7): The Patriots will want the Colts to win to topple the Broncos. I actually think it’s possible since the Broncos don’t have a great enough offense to take advantage of the Colts terrible defense. Colts will cover and I think they sneak out the win, too.
