Week two of the NFL is just about to kick off and there are some fascinating games to watch. Week one brought some upsets and other clubs underperformed to their potential. It will be interesting to see how certain teams rebound or continue to fall during the early portion of the season. Teams like the Bills, Bengals, and Chiefs are a few teams in the AFC that need to get better.
Week one was full of upsets, and it will be interesting to see if certain clubs like the Steelers are able to turn things around. The NFL is unpredictable in certain ways and that should continue this week with a couple of matchups that will ignite battles of the fields this weekend. There are a few big games to pay close attention to as week two gets going.
Minnesota Vikings (0-1) vs Philadelphia Eagles (1-0), Thursday at 8:15 P.M. EST
Prediction: Eagles 28, Vikings 20
Minnesota is coming off a tough loss in week one that saw them get upset with the expectation-less Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It seems like Kirk Cousins could start to decline at this portion of his career, but he was still able to apply numbers. The Vikings should be able to stick in the playoff hunt after this, but Philadelphia is a big test to overcome.
Expect the Eagles to get out of their home stadium with a victory over Minnesota. They have a lot of talent on both sides of the ball and should be able to cover the Vikings receivers. They match up well and can stop the Vikings running game, which has no quality backs right now. Expect this contest to be tight, but Philly will pull away at the end of the game.
