NFL Bold Predictions Week 2
Kyler Murray and Lamar Jackson combine for over 800 yards and 7 touchdowns
I think this ends as the highest scoring game of the week. You never expect to put up a lot of points against the Ravens defense, but they struggled a little big against 11 personnel vs the Dolphins which is encouraging for the Cardinals who's base offense is out of 11 personnel. On the other side of the ball, Lamar Jackson was the MVP of week 1. Jackson didn't use his legs much last week against a weak Dolphins defensive line, but expect him to get busy against Chandler Jones. Jackson is going to have a great game and so is Kyler.
Alvin Kamara goes 150 yards rushing and 100 yards receiving
Alvin Kamara is one of the most dynamic running backs in the NFL and he is going to have one of the best games of his career. This is one of the biggest games of the Saints season and they are looking to get revenge from the NFC Championship game. All offseason long, the only thing the Saints have heard about is this non pass interference call. They can move past it by running through the Rams defense. Kamara runs through tackles effortlessly and he's going to do the same thing that Christian McCaffrey did last week.
There will be a combined 15 sacks in the Vikings Packers game
Two dominant defenses are going face to face this week. This is a division game and the division games usually are close and hard fought. I think Danielle Hunter is going to have a field day and the Smith brothers will get after Kirk Cousins. Both defenses are going to finish in the top ten this season and we'll see a defensive matchup in this early window game.
Derrick Henry runs for over 200 yards
Derrick Henry is the most physical back in the NFL and will be a force vs the Colts. The Colts run defense looked god awful against the Chargers. Henry is going to run all over this defense. Henry is going to wear this defense out and even though I love Darius Leonard, I just think Henry will out physical the Colts front 7.
Odell Beckham Jr. returns to form
When a player plays with passion, he is deadliest. I think he's genuinely mad with all the publicity he's received for wearing his watch and mad about Greg Williams' game strategy. OBJ is a generational player and I think we see his connection with Baker Mayfield come to fruition this week. Odell is going to be dancing in the end zone on monday night football. He is just better than anyone who lines up in front of him.
