Welcome to Week 2 in the NFL. Here at Nice Pick Cowher, we are not only a bunch of nerds who follow the Pittsburgh Steelers tirelessly, but we are also a bunch of nerds who follow the NFL tirelessly. Therefore we put our money (or maybe just pride) where our mouths are and make picks on every NFL game each week. We don’t mess around with point spreads or anything like that. Just straight up picks.
This week will feature a lot more divisional games with the week starting off having the Jets, coming off of their improbable last-second win against Tampa Bay, traveling to Foxboro to take on the Patriots. Could there be a butt fumble the sequel? Man I hope so. There’s always the ever popular Manning Bowl to be played this week in New York. I wonder if Eli will be as generous with his brother as he was with the Cowboys and cough up the ball a gazillion times again. The Steelers will take on the Bengals for some AFC North road action on Monday night. Not much could go wrong there right?
Not much is wrong with the fact that I’m currently co-leading the standings after the first week. Craig and I lead the pack with 12 winners while Dom is holding down the caboose with 9 winners. Our reader participant, Jenn, went 7-9 in her attempt to challenge the staff. Shout out to Jenn for playing along.
Feel free to join us in making some picks of your own in the comments section, or take the opportunity to heckle and criticize our predictions if that’s your deal. We’ll see who comes out on top after Week 2. Make some picks or root for your favorite NPC staffer! Here we go Steelers!
Here are the overall standings:
Kim = 12-4
Dom = 9-7
Craig = 12-4
Nick = 11-5
Scott = 10-6
Jim = 11-5
