BBV Week 2 Pick'Em

I offered WillG and TroyO the opportunity to send me a winner's preview of this week's games. Neither has, so in the interest of establishing a format, I will do it for them. This is the format we are looking for from weekly winners.

Lock: Patriots defeat Cardinals. The biggest point spread of the week ... BY SIX. Pats are 13.5 point favorites and they're home, where they almost never lose. They were 7-1 at home last year (ha ha!), and that loss to our G-men was the only one in FOUR YEARS for a Brady-led Pats team at home. Bank it.

Upset: Panthers defeat Saints. Personally, I don't see it. But EJAAY does, and he picked the Skins in week 1. Now they're on the road against a division rival. Somebody's gotta go belly up -- might as well be the Saints.

Close call: Denver Broncos. Not many hella tough games in my eyes this week, but this is a matchup of two good teams. I think the Broncos showed a lot of mettle in beating the Steelers in week 1. I know the Falcons are a good team. They're taking the NFC South this year. But the Broncos -- along with the Giants, 49ers, and Patriots -- are a team I just might pick every week. Peyton is back, and it's gonna be a slugfest of a barnburner of a slobberknocker.

As always, please go back and recount your tally here. If anybody who did not play in week 1 would like to join, they will be awarded the worst record from the previous week. At this point that is not too big of a hurdle to overcome, 4 games over hundreds.

After the jump are this week's games.

If I am going to do this again next week, please save your cutesy nicknames and just name the team. Have all picks in before the kickoff of Thursday night football. Having it split into two posts is a pain in the butt.
