Week Two of the NFL season is here folks. Well, it already started actually. Thursday games are awful. Either way, here at FFStatistics we decided to finally get to “NFL Staff Picks” thing going. Better later than never right?
Every week our staff members will make their picks and we will crown a winner based on the best record at the end of the season. Why are we doing this? Why not. Making picks are fun and we like things to brag about and interact with our readers.
These picks will be straight up picks. No line, just who we think is going to be the winner. At least for now, I can feel the pushback already. So, who did our staff pick this week?

Staff Chalk Picks
Every single staff member agreed on the following games:
Saints defeat Browns
I am a bit surprised, to be honest. The Saints offense certainly looked like a juggernaut Week One. But, they did lose to Tampa Bay, while the Browns pulled off a tie with division rival Pittsburgh. The Saints are likely looking for redemption in a big way, and I think our staff all feel the same way. Can Cleveland keep up in this likely shootout? Apparently, none of us think so.
Chargers defeat Buffalo
I am not entirely sure I need to explain the logic here. It would be hard to pick the Bills over may Division One college programs at the moment. Look for this to be a beating of epic proportions.
Rams defeat Cardinals
Did you see both of these teams last week? The Rams offseason moves appear to have paid off, as they look like the class of their conference right now. Look for LA to give Arizona fits all day on both sides of the ball. It must be tough to be a Cardinals fan. You have DJ at least, right?
Broncos defeat Raiders
Again, a bit surprised to see chalk here. Obviously, I took the Broncos, so who am I to question it? The Raiders are certainly better than their performance last week and this game should be closer than many expect. That being said, we all think when the clock hits zero, the Broncos will be celebrating a win.
Staff Surprise Picks
@Willson8tor picks the Seahawks to defeat the Bears
Seattle has a great hurry up offense and Wilson will always give them a chance. Record 19 4th quarter TDs last year.
@Pahowdy picks the Dolphins to defeat the Jets
@Dfs_mathlete picks the Colts to defeat the Redskins
After a big win in Arizona, I think this is a let down spot for Washington. I think Luck will continue to improve and will have a good game.
@TheDude_Z & @Pahowdy pick the Titans to defeat the Texans
