Indianapolis Colts (1-1) vs Baltimore Ravens (2-0), Sunday at 1 P.M. EST

Prediction: Ravens 27, Colts 19

Baltimore hasn't done too many great things in their first two wins despite not beating themselves. That has always been their issue over the past couple of seasons other than their issues with injuries. The Colts are young, but they are not going to be able to put enough pressure on the Ravens to emerge victorious. Another safe and controlled game by the Ravens here to get the win.

Tennessee Titans (1-1) vs Cleveland Browns (1-1), Sunday at 1 P.M. EST

Prediction: Titans 24, Browns 21

Cleveland is coming off a tough loss to the Steelers this past Monday and they're without Nick Chubb. Both teams have a similar play style and that will cause a close game to happen. Without Chubb, the Browns offense is going to struggle. The Titans should be able to force Deshaun Watson to commit a couple of turnovers. That will set up Tennessee in prime position to win the game.

Atlanta Falcons (2-0) vs Detroit Lions (1-1), Sunday at 1 P.M. EST

Prediction: Lions 26, Falcons 18

Detroit is coming off an overtime loss that saw them battle back into the game. There has been a lot of pressure on the Lions to succeed early in the year whereas the Falcons have come out of nowhere to shock many. Detroit is the better team and should be able to clean up a lot of their mistakes. This should be a perfect rebound opportunity for them to shut down the run and attack the passer.

New Orleans Saints (2-0) vs Green Bay Packers (1-1), Sunday at 1 P.M. EST

Prediction: Packers 19, Saints 14

New Orleans has not been a great offense thus far, but their defense has been able to slow their opponents down just enough. That will fail this week as Jordan Love has been one of the better passers in the NFL to start the year. Green Bay is also getting some pieces back from injury that should allow them to move up and down the field a little easier.
