New York Giants (0-1) vs Arizona Cardinals (0-1), Sunday at 4:05 P.M. EST

Prediction: Giants 24, Cardinals 10

Arizona is in trouble and things probably won't be fixed even when Kyler Murray returns from injury. Their offense will be minimal, and their defense has issues all over the field. The Giants got blown out last week and have to fly across the country, but even they should be able to handle Arizona this season. Expect a blowout going in New York's direction this time around.

San Francisco 49ers (1-0) vs LA Rams (1-0), Sunday at 4:05 P.M. EST

Prediction: 49ers 33, Rams 22

The 49ers are coming off a commanding win over the Steelers on the road last week. They have several favorable matchups in this contest too and should be able to take care of business. Don't expect another 30-7 win for a second week in a row, but it should be another stress-free day for San Francisco fans. The Rams just have too many holes on defense to compete.

New York Jets (1-0) vs Dallas Cowboys (1-0), Sunday at 4:25 P.M. EST

Prediction: Cowboys 25, Jets 14

Aaron Rodgers is lost to the season and that will probably sink the Jets chances of making the playoffs. Zach Wilson was alright last week, but the offense did not accomplish much. Their team is basically the same as last year and that won't do them many favors. The Cowboys should be able to do enough on offense to get past a tougher defense this week.

Washington Commanders (1-0) vs Denver Broncos (0-1), Sunday at 4:25 P.M. EST

Prediction: Broncos 27, Commanders 20

Who are the Washington Commanders? They are probably in a rebuilding year, but the Denver Broncos are not much better. Expect a couple of turnovers by Sam Howell in this one that gets Denver's defense a touchdown or two. Russel Wilson seems like his career could be getting close to being over. He does enough here to get a win at home.
