Pudge’s Power Rankings – Week 2

September 14th, 2006

For those curious how I did on my “predictions” last week based on the power rankings, I was an exceptional 8-8. Of the 5 games that I thought would be blowouts, only 1 was (Bears vs. Packers). Of the 11 other games that should not have been blowouts, 3 were (Falcons-Panthers, Bucs-Ravens, & Chargers-Raiders). Well, here we go again with another bout of predictions, although I must again warn that these rankings are not designed to predict which teams will have the best records, thus whether or not a team wins/loses individual games, but rather designed to predict which teams are in the best shape to win the Super Bowl. Based on Week 1′s results, I’m going to bet that by the end of the year, the overall record is going to be sub-.500.

Week 2 games:

Colts over Texans*
Saints over Packers
Bengals over Browns
Bears over Lions*
Ravens over Raiders*
Falcons over Bucs
Eagles over Giants
Panthers over Vikings*
Dolphins over Bills
Seahawks over Cardinals
Rams over 49ers
Chargers over Titans
Patriots over Jets
Broncos over Chiefs
Cowboys over Redskins
Steelers over Jaguars

* indicate expected blowouts

    I was 14-2 in Week 1, but I’ll still go with your Week 2 picks except for:

    Giants over Eagles
    Vikings over Panthers
    Jets over Patriots
