Prisco's NFL Week 2 picks: Giants go to 2-0 with win over Panthers, Saints knock off Tom Brady once more - CBS activities

the first week of the NFL season is at all times so unpredictable. So I can be happy with my first week of picks after seeing what transpired in Week 1.

I went eight-eight in opposition t the spread, which is so-so. but the first rate news is that I went 5-1 with my surest bets as part of the prefer Six Podcast. And if no longer for me adding the Jacksonville Jaguars late, it could had been a clear sweep. Even that seemed respectable for ages, too.

It won't at all times play out that way, however I suppose it will this week in a lot of the games.
