Are the Miami Dolphins and Kansas City Chiefs as good as their 2-0 records? Are the Pittsburgh Steelers and New York Giants as bad as 0-2 might indicate? We're going to start finding out this week.
A pair of wins is a good start but doesn't necessarily mean you should start selling playoff tickets, and a pair of losses doesn't mean you should start sending your coaches out to college games on Saturdays to start scouting draft picks (OK, maybe Jacksonville and Cleveland should). And for the other half of the NFL at 1-1, who knows how things are going to shake out. That's why week three is important. It's the first real division of winners versus losers. Unless there's a tie, nobody ends the week at .500.
The same is true for our staff competition at Rams 101. Brent and Betsy hold a narrow lead over me at 20-12 to 19-13. This week we'll start to see some trends emerge. Here's who we have winning:
|Houston at Baltimore||Ravens||Ravens||Ravens|
|San Diego at Tennessee||Chargers||Chargers||Titans|
|Tampa Bay at New England||Patriots||Patriots||Patriots|
|Cleveland at Minnesota||Vikings||Vikings||Vikings|
|Arizona at New Orleans||Saints||Saints||Saints|
|Detroit at Washington||Lions||Lions||Redskins|
|Green Bay at Cincinnati||Bengals||Packers||Bengals|
|NY Giants at Carolina||Giants||Giants||Giants|
|Atlanta at Miami||Falcons||Falcons||Dolphins|
|Jacksonville at Seattle||Seahawks||Seahawks||Seahawks|
|Indianapolis at San Francisco||49ers||49ers||49ers|
|Kansas City at Philadelphia||Chiefs||Eagles||Eagles|
|Buffalo at NY Jets||Bills||Bills||Jets|
|Chicago at Pittsburgh||Bears||Bears||Bears|
|St. Louis at Dallas||Rams||Rams||Rams|
|Oakland at Denver||Broncos||Broncos||Broncos|
Ten of this week's 16 games have us with unanimous picks. Betsy likes the Jets, Dolphins, Redskins and Titans while Brent's going with the Packers on the road against the Bengals and I like Andy Reid to go back to Philadelphia and get the win with Kansas City.
