Indianapolis Colts (0-1) vs Houston Texans (0-1), Sunday at 1 P.M. EST

Prediction: Texans 20, Colts 17 (OT)

The battle of the first-round quarterbacks here as Anthony Richardson takes on C.J. Stroud. It is going to come down to the wire here as both rosters have severe faults in front of them. Expect the Colts to try and beat the Texans on the ground, but they are without Jonathan Taylor. Stroud leads to Texans down the field late to pull ahead with a game winning field goal.

Kansas City Chiefs (0-1) vs Jacksonville Jaguars (1-0), Sunday at 1 P.M. EST

Prediction: Chiefs 27, Jaguars 23

Kansas City is going to be out for blood this week after a sloppy season opener at home last week. They have also had extra time to prepare since they have not played since last Thursday. Expect a cleaner performance by their offense and that alone should get them ahead in this contest. Jacksonville is no slouch either, but this might be the best game of the week.

Chicago Bears (0-1) vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-0), Sunday at 1 P.M. EST

Prediction: Buccaneers 24, Bears 21

Chicago fans are a bold group, and they bring lofty expectations when a new year hits, especially since Aaron Rodgers is gone. They failed last week, and it seems like another ugly year is in store for Chicago. This is a game they need to win, but Baker Mayfield and the Bucs are a safe team and have a favorable matchup this week against Chicago.

LA Chargers (0-1) vs Tennessee Titans (0-1), Sunday at 1 P.M. EST

Prediction: Chargers 31, Titans 18

LA lost in a shootout last week against the Dolphins, but they will not go up against another strong offensive powerhouse this week. They need to be prepared against the run, but Ryan Tannehill is not the same type of quarterback that he used to be. Expect another offensive attack by the Chargers that gets them a dominant win.
