Interstate 70 Staff’s Week 2 NFL Picks

What a wild Week 1 in the NFL. Nine underdogs ended up winning, and a whopping TWELVE underdogs covered the spread, a record in the Super Bowl era. Here’s what the staff at I-70 Sports thinks will happen in Week 2!

Current Records:

Jeremy: 8-9

Adam: 10-7

Ilene: 8-9

Parker: 7-10

Andy: 10-7

Rene: 7-10

*Records through 9/17/2021

Thursday Night

NYG @ WAS

Jeremy: WAS = No FitzMagic? No problem. The Giants have Saquon, but not much else around him.

Adam: WAS – Not even the Giants fanbase truly believes in Danny Dimes, why should we?

Ilene: WAS

Parker: NYG

Andy: WAS – Two teams I don’t like, probably doesn’t end in a tie – so I’m going with Washington based on their defense, and Jason Garrett being an absolute moron as a coach.

Rene: NYG

Sunday

NE @ NYJ

Jeremy: NE – Have no fear New England: Mac Jones is here. As for the Jets…. ehhh….

Adam: NE – New England has a team built around their rookie QB and well the Jets are the Jets.

Ilene: NE

Parker: NYJ

Andy: NE – Not many chants of J E T S, JETS, JETS, JETS will be heard as NE pulls away late.

Rene: NE

DEN @ JAX

Jeremy: DEN – Losing Jerry Jeudy is a big loss for the Broncos. Not big enough to not handle the miserable Jaguars, however.

Adam: DEN – Don’t sleep on the Broncos this year, Teddy won’t be the reason they lose games. Quintessential game manager.

Ilene: DEN

Parker: DEN

Andy: DEN – Lawrence isn’t necessarily the problem, but that Jacksonville defense is!

Rene: JAX

BUF @ MIA

Jeremy: BUF – Josh Allen is MVP caliber. But the rest of the team needs to follow suit. I think they will against Miami.

Adam: BUF – The fact that Buffalo refuses to run the ball scares me, but at this point I’ll take Allen over Tua.

Ilene: BUF

Parker: BUF

Andy: MIA – Hard to think Buffalo starts 0-2, but I like the Dolphins at home.

Rene: BUF

SF @ PHI

Jeremy: PHI – Jalen Hurts has firmly established himself as the future in Philly. Against a banged-up 49ers team, he’ll show why.

Adam: PHI – I don’t have a real reason why I think Philly wins other than something tells me to pick the Eagles.

Ilene: PHI

Parker: SF

Andy: SF – ShEagles lose to the 49ers, and I hope SF destroys them.

Rene: SF

LAR @ IND

Jeremy: LAR – Matthew Stafford is putting up the same numbers he did in Detroit (which is good). Except this time, he’s getting wins instead of losses.

Adam: LAR – Stafford!!! Thank God they left St. Louis.

Ilene: LAR

Parker: LAR

Andy: LAR – Shouldn’t have left St. Louis, but the Rams leave Indianapolis 2-0

Rene: LAR

LV @ PIT

Jeremy: PIT – Upsetting the Ravens in Vegas stunned everybody. Losing to the Steelers in Pittsburgh wouldn’t shock anybody.

Adam: PIT – I think the game will be close, but the Steelers defense is the real deal.

Ilene: LV

Parker: LV

Andy: PIT – Hard to EVER pick the Steelers, but they looked pretty good in Week 1 – should win at home.

Rene: PIT

CIN @ CHI

Jeremy: CHI – Joe Burrow came back in strong fashion last week against the Vikings. But beating the Bears IN Chicago? That’s a tall task.

Adam: CIN – The fact that Chicago is starting Dalton over Fields blows my mind, they deserve to lose just for that.

Ilene: CHI

Parker: CHI

Andy: CHI – I never root for ANYTHING out of Chicago (except maybe the deep dish and the hot dog), but I think the Bears find a way to beat the Bungles at Soldier

Rene: CIN

HOU @ CLE

Jeremy: CLE – “Same Ol’ Browns” no longer. Barely losing to Kansas City last week, they should have no problem with Houston.

Adam: HOU – The Browns took a moral victory last week in a loss, this week they’re just taking a solid L.

Ilene: HOU

Parker: HOU

Andy: CLE – Not your teenage Browns any longer, they win after giving KC a scare.

Rene: CLE

NO @ CAR

Jeremy: NO – This will be the second week in a row Jameis Winston outplays a former first-round quarterback

Adam: NO – Saints roster top to bottom is much better than the Panthers. If they avoid turnovers this should be an easy game.

Ilene: NO

Parker: NO

Andy: NO – Will Jameis throw 5 more TD? Probably not, but they will beat Carolina.

Rene: NO

MIN @ AZ

Jeremy: AZ – Chandler Jones might have double-digit sacks before Week 3.

Adam: AZ – Never bet on Cousins.

Ilene: AZ

Parker: AZ

Andy: AZ – Kyler Murray is a stud, and the Vikings always find a way to lose.

Rene: AZ

ATL @ TB

Jeremy: TB – Matt Ryan suffers from “Matthew Stafford Syndrome”: a great quarterback on a porous team. Brady owns the Falcons.

Adam: TB – ATL is going to be a train wreck this season.

Ilene: TB

Parker: TB

Andy: TB – Brady beat by ‘Boys in Week 1, he puts Ryan & Atlanta away with ease.

Rene: TB

TEN @ SEA

Jeremy: SEA – I said it all off-season: Tennessee will have a down year. Week 2 will add to my point.

Adam: SEA – LET RUSS COOK!!!

Ilene: TEN

Parker: SEA

Andy: SEA – Tough to beat the 12th man at Home.

Rene: SEA

DAL @ LAC

Jeremy: LAC – losing DeMarcus Lawrence already hurt a beat up Cowboys defense. Herbert will continue to thrive.

Adam: LAC – Don’t sleep on the Chargers, I think they win 10 games this year.

Ilene: DAL

Parker: DAL

Andy: DAL – My Cowboys, who have been letting me down since the late 90’s, even it up at 1-1 after slipping past a good Chargers bunch.

Rene: DAL

KC @ BAL

Jeremy: KC – If week one proved anything, it’s that you’ll need to score over 40 points to beat Mahomes. I don’t believe Lamar Jackson can.

Adam: BAL – This one hurts, but KC has won 4 straight vs Baltimore, I feel like the Ravens are due.

Ilene: KC

Parker: BAL

Andy: KC – Should be a shoot out, KC just does enough to outlast the Ravens.

Rene: KC

Monday Night

DET @ GB

Jeremy: GB – Rodgers finally gets his head out of his… back side… and torches the Lions like he always has. No Okudah makes it even worse for Detroit.

Adam: GB – Thankfully we have the Manning’s alternate broadcast. That’s the only way this will be watchable. Rodgers throw’s 4 TD’s.

Ilene: GB

Parker: GB

Andy: DET – The Lions finally showed up late in the 4th quarter in Week 1, I think GB takes them for granted and gets embarrassed at home.

Rene: GB
