Just to give you an idea of how competitive the NFL is right now six out of our top ten teams lost in Week Two. We went 8-8 for our BUY & SELL predictions and just missed the playoffs; our hope is that Week Two will turn out differently.

Here is an overview on what we called right:

Philadelphia Eagles (SELL) – Lost to New Orleans should rebound with Kansas City scheduled for Week 3.

New Orleans Saints (BUY) – Caught Philly at the right time. This team looks for real after two easy wins.

Indianapolis Colts (BUY) – The good teams always find a way to win and this was the week of the Manning’s proving their value.

Atlanta Falcons (BUY) – This team is strong and the upcoming games against New Orleans will be huge.

Buffalo Bills (BUY) – Buffalo is looking like a solid divisional contender with New England struggling and Miami 0-2. Will this division flip-flop and the Jets and Bills take over the top slots?

Washington Redskins (BUY) – Trying to duplicate the Bengals vs. Denver classic of week one, a win is a win even if you can not score a TD.

Carolina Panthers (SELL) – This team has to be concerned. Their division is getting better and they as a team are getting worse.

St. Louis Rams (SELL) – This can be the Lions (2008) team that we can bet against every week.

Here is an overview on what we missed on:

Pittsburgh Steelers (BUY) – Jeff Reed missed two FG’s and we have a loss against Chicago.

Green Bay Packers (BUY) – Ouch loss to Cincy at home, OchoCinco doing the Lambeau Leap, tough week.

New England Patriots (BUY) – The NY Jets pull this one out and we now need to question whether New England is as good as people think.

Tennessee Titans (BUY) – Where’s the defense? Is Houston that good? This is the best 0-2 NFL team.

New York Jets (SELL) – We thought the Rex Ryan era was overhyped, we were wrong.

Chicago Bears (SELL) – Cutler proves that this team will be as unpredictable as he is.

Houston Texans (SELL) – What a difference a week makes! 34 points put up against Tennessee, once again, are the NY Jets that good?

Cincinnati Bengals (SELL) – Right when we thought the days of Cincy were done and they would give up, CedBen and the Bengals sneak a victory in Green Bay.

Score: ESPN 3, IAA 1, Tie 1 (IAA Record 1-3-1)

• Dallas Cowboys (IAA=4, ESPN=13) – ESPN was more right than us on this one; however that game could have went either way.
• New England Patriots (IAA=9, ESPN=2) – IAA wins this one, we had some concerns here.
• Minnesota Vikings (IAA=2, ESPN=8) – We will call this a tie for now.
• Chicago Bears (IAA=21, ESPN=15) – ESPN wins, Chicago beats Pittsburgh.
• Kansas City Chiefs (IAA=24, ESPN=30) – ESPN wins, Kansas City lost to Oakland.

Teams That We Currently Disagree On

• San Francisco 49ers (IAA=20, ESPN=13) – This could go either way based on the outcome at Minnesota. We are a little concerned that SF is better than we think.
• Dallas Cowboys (IAA=9, ESPN=15) – This team almost beat the NY Giants and had it not been for some strange INT's, tune in Monday night.
• New York Jets (IAA=14, ESPN=8) – We are still not comfortable saying the Jets are back, so they will get their chance against Tennessee this week.
• Arizona Cardinals (IAA 12, ESPN 18) – The game this week with Indi will be an entertaining one.
