Green Bay Packers (1-0) vs Atlanta Falcons (1-0), Sunday at 1 P.M. EST

Prediction: Packers 26, Falcons 16

Jordan Love did well in his first start of the new era in Green Bay. He was able to help lead the charge against the Chicago Bears. He should be able to continue that here as the Atlanta Falcons are one of the bottom feeders of the NFL this season. The Falcons might have won last week, but they will not be able to outperform a better team in front of them.

Las Vegas Raiders (1-0) vs Buffalo Bills (0-1), Sunday at 1 P.M. EST

Prediction: Bills 23, Raiders 17

It is tough flying across the country to play a football game and that will affect the Raiders. Buffalo needs to fix the ship now or they could find themselves in a hole early. Josh Allen needs to improve this week against a Raiders secondary that is suspect. The Bills still have the talent to be good AFC contenders, but they did raise some doubts in week one. Expect them to win this game even if the final score is close.

Baltimore Ravens (1-0) vs Cincinnati Bengals (0-1), Sunday at 1 P.M. EST

Prediction: Bengals 21, Ravens 19

Cincinnati is still the favorite in this one when you look at the betting odds despite an embarrassing blowout loss to the Browns in week one. The Bengals are a much better team than that loss even though they seem rusty. It is going to be a tight battle as the Ravens do have talent on their club, but they have been hit by a couple of notable injuries. Expect it to be close, but the Bengals sneak out with a close win because of ongoing rust issues.

Seattle Seahawks (0-1) vs Detroit Lions (1-0), Sunday at 1 P.M. EST

Prediction: Lions 25, Seahawks 21

Seattle was another team that struggled last week against a club that holds no expectations. Detroit is a real contender right now and has a lot of positive things going in their direction. Add that quality roster with extra rest since last Thursday's game and the Lions are a big favorite. It is going to be the home opener at Detroit with hype around the ball club for the first time in a while.
