NFL picks, Week 2: Falcoholic editors all take Falcons in NFC Championship rematch

New, comments

Let’s hope it turns out this way.

The final game in the Georgia Dome was also one of the best Falcons games in recent memory. Confetti rained down as we all tried to wrap our brains around the fact that the Falcons were headed to the Super Bowl. It was glorious, and our editors here at The Falcoholic believe the team will emerge victorious over the Packers once again on Sunday.

The only other game we’re all in agreement on is the Patriots vs. the Saints. Let’s be honest: The Saints are trash, and Tom Brady and Co. are not, regardless of New England’s Week 1 loss to the Chiefs.

We’re evenly split on the Thursday night game, with half of us picking the Bengals and half going with the Texans. Both Cincinnati and Houston looked absolutely terrible in Week 1, so this one should be a real barnburner.

Most of us are rolling with division rivals Tampa Bay and Carolina this week. Four editors chose the Buccaneers over the Bears, and five chose the Panthers over the Bills. A majority is also taking the Lions over the Giants.

So far, Matt Chambers is in the lead with a perfect record. Dave Choate is sitting pretty at 5-1, and Kevin Knight and I both went 4-2 last week. Kendall Jackson and David Walker are both at .500, which is still better than the Saints fared over the past three seasons.

Here are this week’s picks. Weigh in with your selections in the polls below.
