Week 2 NFL picks and predictions from the experts present some interesting arguments. There are many NFL analysts who feel that the Detroit Lions will beat the New York Giants, the Denver Broncos will beat the Dallas Cowboys, and that the Green Bay Packers will beat the Atlanta Falcons. The Giants and Falcons are playing home games in the Week 2 NFL schedule, likely making it more difficult for fans of those teams to hear these predictions.
The Thursday night game (September 14) on the Week 2 NFL schedule is the Houston Texans vs. Cincinnati Bengals. According to the NFL picks and predictions from the CBS experts, the Bengals should have no problem winning this battle of AFC opponents. Both teams lost their opening week games, so it raises the stakes for this Week 2 game. It could also turn one of the teams from playoff contender to a team already looking toward the 2018 NFL Draft.
A report by the Sporting News also gives the Week 2 NFL picks and predictions, providing another look to compare to what the CBS Sports experts are stating will happen with the Week 2 schedule. While CBS Sports predicts that the Bengals will win on Thursday night, the Sporting News is siding with the Texans. To play the tiebreaker, we turn to the FOX Sports simulator, which picks the Cincinnati Bengals as the favorite to win on Thursday night.

Half of the experts at CBS Sports picked the Denver Broncos to beat the Dallas Cowboys, presumably using a home field advantage on Sunday (September 18). The other sites predict a slim margin of victory for the Cowboys, but this could be a very close game between two playoff teams. Pete Prisco, Jason La Canfora, Will Brinson, and Jamey Eisenberg are currently picking in favor of the Broncos. CBS Sports is also split on the Detroit Lions vs. New York Giants games, with the other sites favoring the Lions to pull off the road victory.

The most competitive game on the Week 2 NFL schedule may be the Green Bay Packers vs. Atlanta Falcons. The experts differ in the Week 2 NFL picks and predictions when it comes to that game, showing how evenly matched the two teams are that just met in the NFC title game last year. The Packers beat the Seattle Seahawks in Week 1, while the Falcons took care of the Chicago Bears on the road. Both teams are now on a path to battle for the best record in the conference again.
