Best Game: New England Patriots vs. Seattle Seahawks, Sunday 8:20 p.m. NBC
We all love our NFL primetime games especially when they’re expected to result in close finishes like the Thursday night extravaganza in Cleveland. The New England Patriots boast the NFL’s best defense and they get their chance to prove they’re still the top dog. Russell Wilson, Chris Carson, Tyler Lockett, and D.K. Metcalf will prove to be a dynamic challenge for the 2019 top defense in terms of points allowed. How will this game end? No one knows!
Patriots quarterback Cam Newton didn’t have a game against the Miami Dolphins in week one but he could surprise fans in week two if he adjusts to Bill Belichick’s system. Will Newton get back on track and pass for more than 200 yards against the Seahawks electrifying defense?
Prediction: Seattle 27 New England 21
Other top Games:
Washington Football Team vs. Arizona Cardinals 4:05 Fox
Remember, we all have to stop calling this team the Washington Redskins. Washington finally turned over a new leaf and started the road to rechristening the team name. Arizona and Washington both won in week one upsets and everyone gets to see which team is better. DeAndre Hopkins gives Kyle Murray the big-time receiver he needs and he occupies defensive coverages which should give Larry Fitzgerald a lot of opportunities as well. The Cardinals well-oiled offensive machine also thrives from Kenyan Drake’s production. Washington rookie defensive end Chase Young could give the elite Cardinals offense a tough time. Fitzgerald and Hopkins suffered injuries in week one. However, both receivers appear ready for this game.
Will Washington’s offensive line crumble though? They need to give second-year quarterback Dwayne Haskins time to throw the ball.
Prediction: Arizona 35 Washington 17
Kansas City Chiefs vs. Los Angeles Chargers
Kansas City looks ready to challenge everyone in the NFL with their elite offense. Their rookie running back, Clyde Edwards-Helaire, looked every bit as good as Kareem Hunt. The Chiefs appear to have made the right call by drafting him rather than Deandre Swift. Patrick Mahomes looks to continue his winning ways after leading Kansas City to their first Super Bowl win in 50 years and their week one win over Houston.
The Chargers barely outlasted the Cincinnati Bengals 16-14. That’s a concern because there is no way the Chargers offense should’ve struggled like that. However, Tyrod Taylor is taking Philip River’s place and he has a long way to go to adjust to being the Chargers starter. He should do better in week two.
Prediction: Kansas City 38 Los Angeles 24
Monday Night Football
New Orleans Saints vs. Las Vegas Raiders
We finally get to see the opening night at Allegiant Stadium! There is going to be an electrifying vibe on Monday night. This is going to be fun!
Saints quarterback, Drew Brees, won’t have Michael Thomas to pass to due to an injury. Brees will have to find other ways to get the offense moving which could be extremely tough. However, Brees has the experience to get the job done. The Saints might not have enough offensive success to defeat the Raiders on their opening night in their new home.
The Raiders outlasted the Panthers and Derek Carr looked like he made things happen. The Raiders have nice offensive weapons in running back Josh Jacobs, tight end Darren Waller and rookie receiver Henry Ruggs III.
Carr threw for 239 yards and achieved a quarterback rating of 107.5. Carr started his NFL career in 2014 and struggled to pass for many yards. He has passed for over 4,000 yards just twice in his career. Perhaps Carr is ready to join the ranks of top tier quarterbacks. He needs to deliver a win for the opening night of Allegiant Stadium.
