Fav QB Matchup
Michael Vick vs San Diego Chargers

Mike Vick sure did look comfortable running Chip Kelly's offense in the first half of Monday night's game against the Redskins and the Chargers pass defense could not stop Matt Schaub and the Texans, despite a 21 point lead and knowing they were going to abandon the run. Schaub completed 34-45 for 329 yards and 3 TDs.

Fav RB Matchup
Doug Martin vs New Orleans Saints

Doug Martin could not do much in week 1 against a stingy Jets run defense, but he'll face a much easier task in the Bucs home opener as they host the Saints. The Saints only saw 14 rushes in week 1 against the Falcons but they allowed 6.3 yards per rush. The Bucs will likely give Martin a heavy workload Sunday and he should run wild on the Saints.

Fav WR Matchup
Wes Welker, Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker vs. Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks, Rueben Randle

This is the Manning Bowl and the brothers each threw for 450 yards last week. Welker and Thomas each scored 2 TDs and I expect Decker to get into the mix against the Giants. Cruz, Nicks and Randle each hit the century mark, surpassing 100 yards against Dallas and the Giants will probably be playing catch up again this week. Denver never runs to begin with and the Giants have serious trust issues with David Wilson. So expect the Manning brothers to throw the ball all over the field in this shootout on Sunday.

Fav TE Matchup
Kellen Winslow @ New England Patriots

Kellen Winslow had a big game in his debut with the Jets, bringing in 7 passes for 79 yards and a touchdown. He's a big target for Geno Smith who looks his way often. Expect the rookie QB to throw his way some more as the chemistry is there and the Jets wide outs are banged up.

Fav DEF Matchup
Oakland Raiders vs Jacksonville Jaguars

Not much to say here besides the fact that Jags scored 2 points against the Chiefs in the season opener. Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne combined to go 19-41 for 157 yards, 0 TDs and 2 INTs while being sacked 6 times. Maurice Jones-Drew wasn't all that great either, rushing the ball 15 times for 45 yards. There is nothing to like about the Jags offense, and the Raiders defense played well against the Colts giving up just 21 points.

Upset of the Week (0-1)
Cowboys @ Chiefs

Pick 6 (5-1)
Falcons vs Rams
Bears vs Vikings
Ravens vs Browns
Raiders vs Jaguars
Bengals vs Steelers

Things to Look For
How much playing time will the Giants give David Wilson
Who will step up in the Patriots passing game with Danny Amendola out
Was the Eagles first half offense a fluke
Can Dez Bryant play through his foot injury
Will Jacksonville score any offensive points
