What number of 1000’s throughout North America have been booted from their survivor swimming pools already, after one Sunday?
Who thought Tampa Bay with Ryan Freegin’ Fitzpatrick on the helm may upset the Saints in New Orleans? The Bucs in all probability didn’t even see that one coming.
That end result typified my awful picks to kick off the season. Onward to Week 2:
Baltimore at Cincinnati, Thursday
KRYK PICK: Baltimore
I used to be mistaken. Picked it Wednesday. Right down to Zero-2 on Thursdays for the season. Good begin to the brand new week.
Carolina (1-Zero) at Atlanta (Zero-1), Sunday, 1 p.m. EDT
KRYK PICK: Atlanta
The Falcons misplaced a few key defenders in Philly – LB Deion Jones til not less than midseason and S Keanu Neal for the 12 months. Nonetheless, the Panthers assault seemed shaky vs. Dallas. Falcons win massive.
LA Chargers (Zero-1) at Buffalo (Zero-1), Sunday, 1 p.m. EDT
(CTV Toronto/Kitchener; through CBS)
KRYK PICK: Los Angeles
The final time Phil Rivers performed in Buffalo, in 2014, Josh Allen was a freshman at a Reedley, Calif., junior school. Allen makes his first regular-season professional begin at QB for the Payments. Lengthy day of studying.
Minnesota (1-Zero) at Inexperienced Bay (1-Zero), Sunday, 1 p.m. EDT
(CTV Atlantic/Montreal/Ottawa/Winnipeg/Saskatchewan/Alberta; through FOX)
KRYK PICK: Minnesota
Count on Packers QB Aaron Rodgers to limp round on his sprained left knee and, usually, not be as efficient as he was Sunday evening in that epic comeback. The Vikes are only a higher staff proper now.
Cleveland (Zero-Zero-1) at New Orleans (Zero-1), Sunday, 1 p.m. EDT
KRYK PICK: New Orleans
Do the Browns win for the primary time since December 2016? Uh, no. Tyrod Taylor final 12 months in Buffalo was completely feeble vs. the Saints D. His longest cross: 9 yards. Whole cross yards: 56.
Miami (1-Zero) at NY Jets (1-Zero), Sunday, 1 p.m. EDT
(TSN3, TSN5; through CBS)
KRYK PICK: New York
Nonetheless can’t consider these groups are undefeated. If Sam Darnold can repeat his implausible professional debut from Monday evening in Detroit, the hyperbole specific will change into unbearable in a single day.
Kansas Metropolis (1-Zero) at Pittsburgh (Zero-Zero-1), Sunday, 1 p.m. EDT
(CTV Northern Ontario and CTV2 Toronto/Atlantic/Ottawa/London-Windsor/Alberta/BC; through CBS)
KRYK PICK: Pittsburgh
Until Massive Ben can’t play for the Steelers (he’s questionable with an elbow harm), and presuming he’s unplugged his inside turnover machine, the Steelers should bounce again from their tie.
Philadelphia (1-Zero) at Tama Bay (1-Zero), Sunday, 1 p.m. EDT
KRYK PICK: Philadelphia
An NFC title-game preview? Nicely, let’s not extrapolate the Bucs’ gorgeous begin too far. If that is actually going to be Nick Foles’ final begin at QB earlier than Carson Wentz’s return, he’ll in all probability shine.
Houston (Zero-1) at Tennessee (Zero-1), Sunday, 1 p.m. EDT
KRYK PICK: Houston
Each beginning offensive tackles for the Titans, Taylor Lewan (concussion) and Jack Conklin (knee), are out. QB Marcus Mariota is questionable (throwing elbow). Yeah, take the Texans.
Indianapolis (Zero-1) at Washington (1-Zero), Sunday, 1 p.m. EDT
KRYK PICK: Washington
The Colts needs to be simpler to defeat for the Redskins than the Cardinals had been final week in Arizona. And the Playing cards had been no match for the run-based, Alex Smith-led Washington assault.
Arizona (Zero-1) at LA Rams (1-Zero), Sunday, four:05 p.m. EDT
KRYK PICK: Los Angeles
If the Playing cards couldn’t put up a lot of a battle at house towards Washington, they don’t determine able to even conserving it shut towards the Rams in Tinseltown.
Detroit (Zero-1) at San Francisco (Zero-1), Sunday, four:05 p.m. EDT
(TSN3, TSN5; through FOX)
KRYK PICK: San Francisco
The Lions had been an across-the-board mess towards the Jets on Monday evening – by far the most important Week 1 disappointment. Don’t search for them to bounce again on a brief week, cross-continent.
Oakland (Zero-1) at Denver (1-Zero), Sunday, four:25 p.m. EDT
(CTV Winnipeg/Saskatchewan/Alberta/BC; through CBS)
KRYK PICK: Denver
Panic appears to be setting in already on the Raiders, after the sudden re-signing of oft-troubled WR Martavis Bryant only a couple weeks after Jon Gruden reduce him. Denver wins.
New England (1-Zero) at Jacksonville (1-Zero), Sunday, four:25 p.m. EDT
(CTV Ontario/Montreal and CTV2Atlantic; through CBS)
KRYK PICK: Jacksonville
In anticipated 35C warmth, unbearable humidity and perhaps storms too, the Jaguars maintain an especial home-field benefit. Tom Brady and the Pats seldom play properly in Miami in such circumstances.
NY Giants (Zero-1) at Dallas (Zero-1), Sunday, Eight:20 p.m. EST
(TSN; CTV Two; through NBC)
KRYK PICK: Dallas
The Cowboys don’t at all times play properly at house towards the Giants. When Giants S Landon Collins prompt stopping the run seemingly will result in victory, QB Dak Prescott stated: “Problem accepted.”
Seattle (Zero-1) at Chicago (Zero-1), Monday, Eight:15 p.m. EST
(TSN; through ESPN)
KRYK PICK: Chicago
If the Bears on either side of the ball can repeat what they did in taking a 17-Zero halftime lead at Inexperienced Bay, they are often aggressive in each sport. Do it for greater than a half, they’ll beat anyone.

BYES THIS WEEK: None.
SEASON RECORD: 7-Eight-1 (.469), by means of Week 1.
