Bears preview
Chicago makes a big trip to the Big Easy, hoping to start 2011 2-0 vs. 2010 playoff teams.
Chicago-New Orleans is also our Game of the Week on CHFF TV.
Broncos preview
If Denver can't figure out a way to win the rushing battle, this game could get uglier than a night out in Austin with Cedric Benson.
Browns preview
Cleveland suffered a double-digit home loss to the Bungles in Week 1, yet somehow find themselves favored on the road at Peyton-less Indianapolis.
Buccaneers preview
The Tampa offense seemed dispirited, hesitant, and out of sync in a Week 1 loss to Detroit; the Bucs must set things straight at Minnesota.
Cowboys preview
Dallas visits 1-0 San Francisco following a heartbreaking loss against the Jets in Week 1.
Dolphins preview
Miami looks to rebound from its Week 1 loss to New England at home against Houston on Sunday. The Texans have beat few teams consistently, but boast a 5-1 record against the Dolphins.
Giants preview
If Big Blue is to rebound from its Week 1 thrashing in Washington, the Giants must snuff out the “Burning Point” that seems to haunt this inefficient team week after week.
Jets preview
The Jets shut down Dallas’s explosive ground game in Week 1; expect them to make Jacksonville one-dimension in Week 2.
Patriots preview
The Patriots welcome class dunce San Diego in a Clash of Statistical Titans in Foxboro. This AFC showdown is also our Game of the Week on Sports Illustrated.com and we also discuss it on CHFF TV with Comcast Sports Net.
Saints preview
New Orleans already suffered one loss to a NFC North foe and now must overcome that division’s 2010 champ to avoid starting the season 0-2.
Chicago-New Orleans is also our Game of the Week on CHFF TV.
Steelers preview
The Steelers can overcome their Week 1 Mulligan vs. Baltimore, as they have several times in their history. It begins with a Week 1 visit from Seattle.
Titans preview
The last time the Titans welcomed the Ravens to Nashville, it ended with a disastrous playoff loss that ruined Tennessee’s 13-3 season of 2008.
Vikings preview
Minnesota lost at San Diego Week 1, but at least the Vikes looked better statistically than their Week 2 opponents from Tampa Bay, ranking a full 10 spots ahead of the Bucs in our Quality Stats Power Rankings (No. 20 vs. No. 30).
