Every week there’s a handful of numbers that make you wonder how it happened. I’m going to list my 5 BOLD predictions for Week 2 and a few may be very bold. Why not go crazy though, if it pans out, I look like a genius.
Denver records double digit sacks – We saw Denver on opening night handle the Panthers, especially later in the game when it mattered. If they can dominate a good offensive line, what are they going to do to the less than stellar Colts line? I’m sorry Andrew Luck, it’s going to be a long day.
Rams upset Seattle – Let’s not forget the Rams beat Seattle in both matchups last year. Seattle struggled heavily against a mediocre Miami team and in the game Russell Wilson tweaked his ankle. Los Angeles played awful against the 49ers but I expect them to win a low scoring game in their home opener.
Dez Bryant is woeful, again – The numbers show that Bryant is not a top tier WR when Romo is out, well it might be a rough year for Dez. The Redskins will look to make Norman earn his pay by sticking to the stud reciever unlike the game plan against the Steelers.
Big Ben torches Cincinnati – Pittsburgh has a nasty offense, that’s no secret. This week we will see a rivalry that is going to be a old school fight for your life game. Big Ben and Antonio Brown will connect for multiple scores and possibly a record breaking number of yards? We will see.
Adrian Peterson gets his groove back – After an awful opening week I think we will se the AP of old. 31 yards will likely be passed in the first quarter as Peterson breaks the century mark in this game. If Minnesota wants to be a contender, it goes through the legs of number 28.
