Each Thursday this season, I'm going to predict the outcome of every NFL game that weekend - including games played by the Buffalo Bils, of course. I generally am not very good at this, but thankfully, the job is made easier by the fact that I won't have to pick against any sort of spread. Still, I'm betting if y'all play along, many of you will wipe the floor with me. On to the Week 2 picks!
Bengals 20, Browns 6: Dick Jauron has a pretty good defense down there in Cleveland, but there's no offense to speak of. Cincinnati was a massive Week 1 disappointment, but this will be a great "get right" week for them.
49ers 31, Lions 27: This should be a fun game. The 49ers play football the right way, and the Lions have two of the game's elite players on offense. San Fran is an easy pick at home, but this will be a shootout of sorts.
Chiefs 27, Bills 20: I'd love to pick Buffalo this week, but after their performance in New Jersey, I couldn't bring myself to do it. The Chiefs are getting a major boost defensively in the form of Tamba Hali and Brandon Flowers back in the lineup, while the Bills will be without two of their four most important offensive weapons. I do think Buffalo will be much more competitive this week, but moral victories are for the birds; I like Kansas City to win it.
