Really rough week 2 for me, going 6-10 and putting me at 15-17 for the season.
After only two weeks it has already been one of the most unpredictable seasons yet, especially in the NFC where 10 of 16 teams are 1-1 and only 3 teams, the Giants, Vikings and Eagles remain undefeated. On to week 3.
Denver Broncos (2-0) at Cincinnati Bengals (1-1)
(-3.0) (O/U 41.0)
Denver has established themselves as having the best defense in the NFL yet again and harassed Andrew Luck all game last week with 5 sacks and two defensive TD’s. Rookie QB or not it’s hard to pick against that defense.
Minnesota Vikings (2-0) at Carolina Panthers (1-1)
(-7.0) (O/U 43.0)

Picking winners in week 1 is a crap shoot. You just never know what good teams from last year will fall apart this and what bad team will step it up and become playoff contenders. But I am committed again this year so let’s get right to it.
Green Bay Packers at Jacksonville Jaguars
(+4.5) (O/U 48.0)
Everyone always like picking the Packers. They have a high powered offense with Aaron Rodgers, and Jordy Nelson is back after missing all of last season.
But you know who else has a high powered offense? This Jaguars team. Blake Bortles threw for 4428 yards and 35 TD’s last year. Mainly to his two elite receivers Allen Robinson (1,400 yards, 14 Td’s) and Allen Hurns, ( 1,031 yards, 10 Tds) their defense needs work but they can keep up with the Packers high paced offense.

Hawk’s Preview of the AFC West, which includes the Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders, and San Diego Chargers.
No one expected Denver’s offense to match its record breaking output of 2013, where they averaged 340 yards and nearly 38 points a game, but their 2014 version was pretty damn good too. They averaged 291.3 yards a game, 4th highest in the league and 30.4 points a game, 2nd highest. Leading the charge in 2015 again will be Peyton Manning
whom enters his 4th year as a Bronco. 39 year old, hes a future 1st ballot Hall of Famer
and has had a remarkable career. His 530 career TD passes is an NFL record, and at 69,691 career passing yards he should easily break Brett Favre
‘s NFL record of 71,838 yards this season.
Despite dealing with a torn quad the last month of the season Manning still managed to throw for 4,727 yards (4th most in the NFL) and 39 Td’s, 2nd most in the league.
Once again Manning’s favorite receiver was Demaryius Thomas whose 111 catches for 1,619 yards receiving was 2nd only to Pittsburgh’s Antonio Brown in both categories. He also scored 11 times.

Note from DouBle B: This past Sunday Hawk and I were celebrating the Seahawks dismantling of the Cards and he said we need a picture of a Turducken for this week’s NFL Picks, in honor of Thanksgiving. So behind the text in the pic above? That’s a deboned chicken, stuffed into a deboned duck, stuffed into a deboned turkey. AKA “The Turducken”.
