2017 NFL Week 2 Predictions



Aaron Rodgers faces Matt Ryan in a rematch of the 2017 NFC Championship game.





Chris Ransom Last Updated: September 13, 2017.



Houston Texans 0-1-0
Versus
Cincinnati Bengals 0-1-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Our NFL Predictions are back. Jesse Lucas, Oren Shiri, and Jason Bantle all went 9-6 in week 1. Tany Holmes and myself are tied for last place at 7-8. Tampa Bay and Miami didn't play last week. I started 23-30 last year in last place through 5 weeks and still came back to win. The last two seasons I began the year 5-11 and 6-10 and still avoided last place. There is still a whole lot of football left.



Why the Houston Texans Will Win: Deshaun Watson is making his first start. Houston's defense should play much better after that embarrassing performance at home against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Cincinnati has a weak offensive line so I expect J.J. Watt and this pass rush to get pressure on Andy Dalton like the Ravens did. Kareem Jackson, Jonathan Joseph, and Kevin Johnson should have no problem blanketing Andy Dalton's wide receiver targets. Baltimore held Cincinnati to a shutout and the Texans defense is better.


Why the Cincinnati Bengals Will Win: Andy Dalton has way more experience than Watson. Tyler Eifert should have no problems against Houston's mediocre safeties. Cincinnati's pass rushers could take off if Duane Brown does not end his holdout at left tackle.


Jordan Willis who had 4 sacks in the preseason will start at 4-3 right end next to Carlos Dunlap. Willis may be a factor in this game with Duane Brown still out at left tackle. Willis and Dunlap will both get pressure on Watson throughout the game.


Houston has a ton of injuries. Will Fuller is out. C.J. Fiedorowicz is on injured reserve. Ryan Griffin and Stephen Anderson are out so all 3 of Houston's tight ends are out. Right guard Jeff Allen is out. Brian Cushing begins his 10 game suspension tonight. J.J. Watt left on Sunday with a dislocated finger.


Prediction: Cincinnati enters as a 5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $200 dollars, the maximum bet is $240 dollars with the average gambler betting around $220 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 38 points. I am taking the under. The Bengals win and Texans cover the spread with the under.


Final Score Bengals 19 Texans 17

Cleveland Browns 0-1-0
Versus
Baltimore Ravens 1-0-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Joseph Potter, the co-host of my podcast also has his own channel on The Evolution Network. New episodes air every Monday.


Why the Cleveland Browns Will Win: Kizer is gonna need a huge game. Cleveland isn't gonna win, but they could cover the spread.


Why the Baltimore Ravens Will Win: Ronnie Stanley is gonna give Joe Flacco a wall in the pocket once again. Cleveland has suspect corners. I thnk Joe Flacco will have a big game versus Cleveland.


Prediction: Baltimore enters as a 7.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $300 dollars, the maximum bet is $360 dollars with the average gambler betting around $330 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 41 points. I am taking the under. The Ravens win and the Browns cover the spread with the under.


Final Score Ravens 20 Browns 14

Chicago Bears 0-1-0
Versus
Tampa Bay Buccaneers 0-0-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Tony Mario posted his NFL Power Rankings and his 2018 NFL Mock Draft. Check them out for his insight on the NCAA and NFL.


Why the Chicago Bears Will Win: Mike Glennon was once the starter in Tampa Bay. He will be motivated to play his heart out versus Tampa Bay. This game will be a lot closer than people think.


Why the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Will Win: Jameis Winston should carve Chicago. Mike Evans should have a huge game as well. Winston has an abundance of weapons he can use to carve Chicago. Brent Grimes and Vernon Hargreaves III don't have to worry about Cameron Meredith or Kevin White.


Prediction: Tampa Bay enters as a 7 point favorite. The minimum bet is $120 dollars, the maximum bet is $140 dollars with the average gambler betting around $130 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 43 points. I am taking the over. The Buccaneers win and the Bears cover the spread with the under.


Final Score Buccaneers 34 Bears 28 OT





Who Everyone Else Picked






Tanya Holmes Oren Shiri Jesse Lucas Jason Bantle


Minnesota Vikings 1-0-0
Versus
Pittsburgh Steelers 1-0-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


The Draft Utopia podcast is back for season 8 on Talkshoe and this is also our first season with live episodes of the podcast on Youtube.


To call in just dial 724-444-7444 and then 114547#. After that you need to create a Talkshoe account with a phone number and then you dial that phone number and press pound or you can press 1# after dialing in 724-444-7444 and then 114547#.




Why the Minnesota Vikings Will Win: Minnesota has a defense that can fluster Pittsburgh. If they step up and Sam Bradford plays like he did on Monday Night, Minnesota has a chance to pull an upset in Pittsburgh.


Why the Pittsburgh Steelers Will Win: Pittsburgh's offense is far more potent than anything the Vikings encountered in their home opener against New Orleans. Pittsburgh's defense is much more battle tested than New Orleans which is why Sam Bradford won't make as many big plays when he has defenders in his face like last week.


Prediction: Pittsburgh is a 6 point favorite. The minimum bet is $240 dollars, the maximum bet is $280 dollars with the average gambler betting around $260 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 45.5 points. Pittsburgh wins and Minnesota covers with the under.


Final Score Steelers 17 Vikings 14





Who Everyone Else Picked






Tanya Holmes Oren Shiri Jesse Lucas Jason Bantle



New England Patriots 0-1-0
Versus
New Orleans Saints 0-1-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


We have a brand new 2018 NFL Draft Game where you can draft up to 140 different players. We will add more players as the season progresses.


Why the New England Patriots Will Win: New England is pissed about losing to the Chiefs. New Orleans has a ton of players injured. WIth Terron Armstread and Zach Streif injured at offensive tackle the Patriots should get pressure on Drew Brees. Tom Brady will pick apart New Orleans without Delvin Breaux. New England has the secondary to limit what Drew Brees does this week.


Why the New Orleans Saints Will Win: New Orleans has to win this game. If Hightower and Vincent Valentine are injured and ruled inactive for week 2 then Mark Ingram, Adrian Peterson, and Alvin Kamara can control the clock on this run defense and come up with a game plan similar to the Chiefs. The Patriots could start 0-2 and still get home field. New Orleans on the other hand the Saints need this win to avoid being two games down in the NFC South to start the season assuming Atlanta or Carolina wins at home this week.


Prediction: New England enters as a 6.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $250 dollars, the maximum bet is $300 dollars with the average gambler betting around $275 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 54 points. I am taking New England to win and cover in New Orleans with the under.


Final Score Patriots 35 Saints 14





Who Everyone Else Picked






Tanya Holmes Oren Shiri Jesse Lucas Jason Bantle


Philadelphia Eagles 1-0-0
Versus
Kansas City Chiefs 1-0-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


NFL Big Brother a lot of plot twists for season 3. Andy Reid got turned into a Kool-Aid man following his victory over the Patriots. We are already down to 26 teams with 6 teams being evicted in the first week. You can read about it here 2017 NFL Big Brother Week 1 Eviction. New England defeated the Lions to win season 2 of NFL Big Brother.


Why the Philadelphia Eagles Will Win: Doug Peterson worked with Andy Reid in Kansas City before coming to Philadelphia. Zach Ertz could have a big game now that Eric Berry is out for the Chiefs.


Why the Kansas City Chiefs Will Win: Kansas City's passing game will build on last week now that Ronald Darby is out. I expect Alex Smtih to connect with Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce. Running back Kareem Hunt took off versus New England and he will have an impact versus Philadelphia unless the Eagles front 7 can keep him in check. Even if that happens Hunt will still have an impact in the passing game.


Prediction: Kansas City enters as a 4.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $180 dollars, the maximum bet is $210 dollars with the average gambler betting around $195 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 47.5 points. I am taking Kansas City to win and cover with the under.


Final Score Chiefs 24 Eagles 19

Tennessee Titans 0-1-0
Versus
Jacksonville Jaguars 1-0-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Tanya Holmes set her week 2 lineup on Draft Kings. Winston should go off so this is a smart lineup. Go to Draft Kings and sign up with the promo code draftutopia for your 20 dollar entry fee since this weeks DraftKings contest has a $20 dollar entry fee.




Why the Tennessee Titans Will Win: Marcus Mariota will have more time in the pocket than either one of Houston's quarterbacks since left tackle Taylor Lewan and right tackle Jack Conklin will buy him time in the pocket. Brian Orakpo and Derrick Morgan should get some pressure on Blake Bortles. If Logan Ryan and Adoree Jackson play well like they did versus Oakland then the Titans should have no problem winning.


Why the Jacksonville Jaguars Will Win: Leonard Fournette will have to be the man again. Cam Robinson will have to pave the way for Fournette and keep Orakpo from sacking Bortles if the Jaguars expect to win. Jacksonville had 10 sacks versus Houston last week and called themselves Sacksonville on Twitter so they will get by Tennessee's interior offensive line and get some pressure on Mariota. They have to get sacks if they want to win in week 2 and start 2-0.


Prediction: Tennessee enters as a 1.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $100 dollars, the maximum bet is $120 dollars with the average gambler betting around $110 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 43.5 points. I am taking Tennessee to win and cover with the over.


Final Score Titans 26 Jaguars 24

Arizona Cardinals 0-1-0
Versus
Indianapolis Colts 0-1-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


You can go to Fanpicks and enter the Promo Code draftutopia to win $20 dollars. We also have a Draft Kings advertisement on our home page so you can go there to sign up for Fantasy Football as well.


Why the Arizona Cardinals Will Win: Carson Palmer should shred this weak Colts defense. Andrew Luck and Vontae Davis are both still injured for the Colts so the Cardinals should have no problem beating the Colts.


Why the Indianapolis Colts Will Win: David Johnson is out with an injury. If this pass defense can game plan around Carson Palmer and Larry Fitzgerald then Indianapolis has a slim shot of winning at home.


Prediction: Arizona enters as a 7.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $290 dollars, the maximum bet is $350 dollars with the average gambler betting around $320 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 44.5 points. The Cardinals win and cover with the under.


Final Score Cardinals 24 Colts 10

Buffalo Bills 1-0-0
Versus
Carolina Panthers 1-0-0


You can click this link to check out our 2018 NFL Mock Draft. My mocks are updated every Tuesday. This three round mock draft features my top 100 for the 2018 NFL Draft. Buffalo moved up in my mock and Carolina moved into my playoff picture so check it out.


Chris Ransom's Pick


Why the Buffalo Bills Will Win: Sean McDermott is facing his former team. Buffalo is going to be motivated to pull the road upset and win this game.


Why the Carolina Panthers Will Win: I think Cam Newton is going to have a big game as well. Buffalo like Carolina has a weak secondary. Both quarterbacks will capitalize off of this, but this game will come down to who makes the fewest mistakes.


Prediction: Carolina enters as a 7.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $260 dollars, the maximum bet is $320 dollars with the average gambler betting around $290 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 42.5 points. Carolina wins and Buffalo covers. I will take the over in a shootout.


Final Score Panthers 31 Bills 28

New York Jets 0-1-0
Versus
Oakland Raiders 1-0-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


My friend Luis Tirado Jr. has some fantastic content over at The Jet Press. Check them out for more information on the Jets in 2017.


Why the New York Jets Will Win: The Jets have a great guard tandem with Brian Winters and James Carpenter. Bilal Powell and Matt Forte are facing weak Raider linebackers. The Jets can cover the spread if the running game steps up and McCown avoids turnovers. I don't think the Jets match up well with Oakland though.


Why the Oakland Raiders Will Win: Derek Carr should dominate. The Jets have good safeties, but mediocre corners. We could see both Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree get 100 receiving yards on the Jets.


Prediction: Oakland enters as a 14 point favorite. The minimum bet is $700 dollars, the maximum bet is $1,100 dollars with the average gambler betting around $900 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 43.5 points. Oakland wins and covers. I will take the over.


Final Score Raiders 37 Jets 13

Miami Dolphins 0-0-0
Versus
Los Angeles Chargers 0-1-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


You can check out US Football Tips our newest partner with us at Draft Utopia. Feel free to compare our point spreads to theirs.


Why the Miami Dolphins Will Win: Jay Cutler makes his first start. Jay Ajayi will be able to run on Los Angeles with Denzel Perryman injured. Laremy Tunsil and Ju'Wuan James have to give Cutler time if Miami is to have a chance. Miami has a better run defense than Denver so Melvin Gordon may have problems moving the chains like last week. Some of the Dolphins have been in Los Angeles before the Chargers left for Denver so you could argue Miami has more of a home field because of that plus the Chargers have the NFL's smallest stadium.


Why the Los Angeles Chargers Will Win: The pass rushing tandem of Melvin Ingram and Joey Bosa gave Denver problems. I expect them to do the same with Miami. Philip Rivers will play turnover free football against Miami since they have a weak secondary. Keenan Allen should carve Byron Maxwell or Xavien Howard in this game.


Prediction: Los Angeles enters as a 4.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $190 dollars, the maximum bet is $220 dollars with the average gambler betting around $2-5 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 45.5 points. I like the Chargers to win and cover this game as I will take the over.


Final Score Chargers 28 Dolphins 23

San Francisco 49ers 0-1-0
Versus
Seattle Seahawks 0-1-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


You can check out 4th And Long a Facebook group my friend Sam Pittman runs.


Why the San Francisco 49ers Will Win: I don't think San Francisco will win this game. Go ahead an lock Seattle in as a survivor pick for week 2 if you don't want to lock in Baltimore over Cleveland as a survivor pick for week 2.


Why the Seattle Seahawks Will Win: Russell Wilson will get Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett involved. Expect Wilson to go off versus San Francisco.


Prediction: Seattle enters as a 13.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $650 dollars, the maximum bet is $950 dollars with the average gambler betting around $800 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 43 points. Seattle wins and covers. I will take the over.


Final Score Seahawks 31 49ers 13

Washington Redskins 0-1-0
Versus
Los Angeles Rams 1-0-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Speaking of Bill Clinton. Every week leading up to the College Football Playoff we will have Bill Clinton's College Football Playoff where Bill Clinton ranks the top 4 teams in College Football. This is the third year Bill Clinton has posted his College Football Playoff.


Bill Clinton's College Football Playoff Selection Special



  1. Alabama Crimson Tide

    Alabama is the number one team again as Nick Saban is once again the biggest pimp in College Football.





  2. Clemson Tigers

    At #2 we have the Clemson Tigers. Clemson beat Alabama to win the 2017 College Football Playoff.





  3. Oklahoma Sooners

    Watching Baker Mayfield mark his territory versus Ohio State at the 50 yard line by planting his flag was glorious.





  4. UCLA Bruins

    Josh Rosen led UCLA to a 34 point comeback versus Texas A&M after trailing 44-10 at one point. Josh Rosen is what legends are made of.






Why the Washington Redskins Will Win: Josh Norman and Breshad Breeland have to play much better than they did in week 1. Kirk Cousins needs a huge game as well. His offensive line has to give him more time in the pocket. Trent Williams and Morgan Moses have to step up at offensive tackle for the Washington Redskins.


Why Los Angeles Rams Will Win: I think Jared Goff can pick apart this secondary. As long as he gets time in the pocket you have to like the Rams. Sean McVay was once the offensive coordinator for the Redskins. Wade Philips will devise a game plan that will fluster Kirk Cousins. Robert Quinn and Connor Barwin will get pressure on Kirk Cousins.


Prediction: Los Angeles enters as a 2.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $120 dollars, the maximum bet is $140 dollars with the average gambler betting around $130 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 46 points. I like the Rams to win and cover this game as I will take the over.


Final Score Rams 28 Redskins 27

Dallas Cowboys 1-0-0
Versus
Denver Broncos 1-0-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


The Dallas Cowboys are now 30-20 under Bill Lumbergh. Lumbergh enters year four as the Dallas Cowboys GM with a 1-2 record in the Playoffs after winning a playoff game in his first year as a GM.




Here is this weeks advice from Bill Lumbergh.

Hey Dak Prescott. What's happening? If you can invade Denver and beat the Broncos that would be terrific.


Why the Dallas Cowboys Will Win: Dallas has an excellent offensive line with left tackle Tyron Smith, center Travis Frederick, and right guard Zack Martin. Ezekiel Elliott didn't get suspended. He will exploit Denver's front 7 with Derek Wolfe and Shane Ray injured. I don't trust Denver's offense at quarterback. Dak Prescott is less likely to commit a turnover than Trevor Siemian.


Why the Denver Broncos Will Win: Denver has a top 5 defense when they apply themselves. The problem is they have an average quarterback that can make good not great decisions and a shaky offensive line. Trevor Siemian has to avoid turnovers all together in order for Denver to win. I doubt that happens.


Prediction: Dallas enters as a 2 point favorite. The minimum bet is $115 dollars, the maximum bet is $135 dollars with the average gambler betting around $125 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 42.5. Dallas wins and covers with the over.


Final Score Cowboys 31 Broncos 17





Who Everyone Else Picked






Tanya Holmes Oren Shiri Jesse Lucas Jason Bantle


Green Bay Packers 1-0-0
Versus
Atlanta Falcons 1-0-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


All ten teams in the BFFL League have team logos. I'll use this section to rank where the 10 teams stand on Yahoo.



  1. H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes 1-0

    H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes began the year with 169.68 points on last years defending champions The Chosen Ones. I can't argue with Heath Berman's team being ranked first overall after laying down an impressive 169.68-114.46 win over last years champs.





  2. Team Mouserat 1-0

    I recruited Mark Sciubba to the league this year after a spot opened up. He drafted well and defeated my team thanks to drafting both Matthew Stafford and Tyrod Taylor having big weeks at quarterback. He also got Brandin Cooks and Tyreek Hill at wide receiver. Both wide receivers had big weeks as well and can agree with Mark at 2 after one week.





  3. Brees Nutz 1-0

    Mitch Pabst owner of Brees Nutz dodged a bullet when Ezekiel Elliott avoided his suspension. Using a first round keeper on Elliott and a tenth round keeper on Michael Thomas were brilliant decisions. Mitch also landed Drew Brees in our league draft too. He needs to remind himself to bench Allen Robinson with him on IR though.





  4. Taco Corp 1-0

    Taco Corp put their two keepers Odell Beckham Jr. and Ty Hilton on the bench last week and still won by getting off to a 1-0 start. I'm actually extremely impressed that Selvan won while benching his keepers. That's an achievement that warrants a round of applause as well as a virtual medal from Yahoo.





  5. Anti Bantle 1-0

    Anti Bantle won the league three years ago. They used keepers on Antonio Brown and Tom Brady before losing in the Semifinals of last years playoffs. They also drafted Rob Gronkowski and can field a playoff team if their running backs step up.





  6. Gangster Squad 0-1

    I lost because I started Chris Hogan over Kenny Golladay. The good news is I can use a sixteenth round keeper on Kenny Golladay next season MUHAHA!





  7. TD Sprinkles 0-1

    Its like Flow from Progressive says "Sorry Jimmy Sprinkles are for winners."





  8. The Chosen Ones 0-1

    Our league commissioner kept drafting quarterbacks that got injured like Andrew Luck and Ryan Tannehill. They also used a keeper on David Johnson which is the biggest reason his team is 0-1. The Chosen Ones need to beat the next ranked team on our rankings.





  9. Avengers 0-1

    Avengers had the leagues worst record last year and actually drafted a really good team. They used the #1 overall pick on Le'Veon Bell who was on my team last year so I'm a little bit surprised they are 0-1. They face the Chosen Ones in a pivotal matchup with two competitive teams hoping to avoid 0-2 starts.





  10. Car RamRod 0-1

    Andrew Kermish one of the co hosts from our podcast is 0-1 to begin the year. I'm just glad the Cowboys and Alabama are still undefeated otherwise I'm not sure he'd be too happy about how everything is.




Why the Green Bay Packers Will Win: Bryan Bulaga is out at right tackle. All the matchups favor Atlanta. The only reason Green Bay may win is simply due to this being a revenge game. Green Bay is 2-3 in their last 5 Sunday Night Football games.


Why the Atlanta Falcons Will Win: Matt Ryan and Julio Jones will carve Green Bay's cornerbacks. Mohamed Sanu should make some big plays too. Takkarist McKinley and Vic Beasley will get pressure on Aaron Rodgers. The Falcons also have Desmond Trufant so if Rodgers thinks last time was a pain in the rer end he will have even more to worry about now. Green Bay couldn't score on Seattle in the first half and this defense is even more lethal.


Prediction: Atlanta enters as a 2.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $125 dollars, the maximum bet is $145 dollars with the average gambler betting around $135 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 53.5 points. Atlanta wins and covers the spread with the under occurring.


Final Score Falcons 38 Packers 13

Detroit Lions 0-0-0
Versus
New York Giants 0-0-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


I just cannot stand ESPN's Monday Night Football Coverage. Monday Night Football On KDKA is back with Bob Pompieni, Mark Madden, and Andrew Filiponi. Tonight the gang is in New York.


Pompieni: Welcome to Monday Night Football. Bob Pompieni along with Mark Madden and Andrew Filiponi covering ESPN Monday Night Football on KDKA from MetLife Stadium. Mark what are your thoughts on this game?

Madden: Welcome to New Jersey. This game isn't in New York it's in New Jersey. Tonight Detroit travels to New Jersey hoping to piss off some asshole New Yorkers known as the Giants.

Filiponi: Matthew Stafford is clutch. More fourth quarter comebacks than any other team in the NFL.

Pompieni: That's a very good point about Stafford Poni. Mark is also correct about this game being played in New Jersey.

Madden: I am picking the Giants.

Filiponi: Well, I like the Lions. Matthew Stafford should step up tonight.

Pompieni: Tonights game is brought to you by the Met Life.

Madden: No Bob, tonights game is sponsored by The Jersey Shore.

Pompieni: Jesus. Alright tonights game is brought to you buy Met Life and The Jersey Shore. We'll be back with kickoff after these commercial messages.



Why the Detroit Lions Will Win: Matthew Stafford has to be the man once again. That's what I said about the Lions in week 1 and that's the biggest reason why the Lions prevailed. Right end Ziggy Ansah is healthy again and he has a great chance of getting some quarterback hurries on Ei Manning since Ereck Flowers is a mediocre left tackle. Odell Beckham Jr. is injured without him the defense may play well enough to win.


Why the New York Giants Will Win: Eli Manning should carve this defense. I could see Paul Perkins having a big game too. Perkins is going to have to step up if Odell Beckham Jr. is out again. The Giants defense is much tougher than the Lions so that is one reason why the Giants will win.


Prediction: New York enters as a 4 point favorite. The minimum bet is $170 dollars, the maximum bet is $200 dollars with the average gambler betting around $185 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 43.5. New York wins and Detroit covers with the over.
