Super Bowl: Kansas City Chiefs vs. How miserable is the Seattle offense? Those Dolphins went on to cough up 31 points in a loss to a Jimmy Garoppolo-led New England offense the next week.
The game in the trenches? Seahawks offensive line ranked in bottom four in both pass and run blocking PFF. Now the Seahawks have to deal with the San Francisco 49ers, a team that shut out those Rams in fashion to start the season. Though the 49ers came back to earth in a loss to the Carolina Panthers last week, this is still a rough divisional matchup and a plodding Seahawks team. This isn't meant to suggest the Seahawks will take a loss.
The defense has still played quite well. It is the Wilson-led offense not upholding its end of the bargain. But the defense can shutter Carlos Hyde 3. The gut instinct when looking at this line is to take the Indianapolis Colts over the San Diego Chargers and call it a day.
The Colts took a loss to the Detroit Lions in Week 1. Last week was a bombing at the hands of the Denver Broncos. Andrew Luck isn't getting any help at all, not from a ground game that has yet to hit the yard mark in a contest or a defense that can stop anything. Compare that to the Chargers, a team that lost a heartbreaker in overtime to the Kansas City Chiefs while also losing star wide receiver Keenan Allen.
Philip Rivers and the team rallied, though, blowing away the Jacksonville Jaguars, Rivers was quick to point out that the two games, in which the Chargers had a healthy lead in both, provided the necessary learning experience. The Colts won't have an answer for San Diego running back Melvin Gordon, who is coming off his first yard game.
This will open things up in the air for Rivers, and honestly, Luck and his offense haven't shown enough through two weeks to inspire confidence when it comes to keeping pace. In the process, Jay Cutler , Lamarr Houston, Eddie Goldman and several other players suffered injuries of varying severity, as compiled by Eli Kaberon on the team's official site.
Now those hobbled Bears have to turn around on a short week and make the trip to Dallas for an encounter with the Cowboys on Sunday Night Football.

Miami Dolphins Jacksonville Jaguars After both teams fell behind in their Week 2 matchups, the Dolphins and Jaguars had dramatic comebacks, but could not finish them off.
Both teams covered the spread, which is all that matters at the end of the day. A battle of Florida bottom feeders as both teams are not expected to do much in This could end up being a sloppy Week 3 Thursday night matchup. Miami does feel like they are the better team on paper. However, traveling for a Thursday night matchup is never easy, so there is not a huge surprise that Jacksonville opened up as the favorite.
The Giants and Bears came down to the final play of the game as Chicago had a goalline stand against the G-men. The Falcons could not hang onto their incredible first-half lead as the Cowboys won on a game-winning field goal.
Atlanta feels like the side to take after the Falcons should have won Week 2. On top of that, there is an argument that the Bears should be in after the meltdowns that have happened in their games. This also says a lot that the Atlanta is favored in the Week 3 matchup. Houston Texans Pittsburgh Steelers The Steelers struggled to put away Denver after quarterback Drew Lock went down early in their matchup, and the Broncos were able to hang around.
The Texans are off to a rough first two weeks with losses to Kansas City and Baltimore. The Steelers will be fortunate to be home back to back weeks as well. The Steelers have been very good on defense, but the offense has been stagnant at times. Look for the key matchup to come down to how Houston can limit Big Ben and Co.
If they struggle to contain the offense, then the Texans will start Tennessee Titans The Titans picked up its second win this season after a win over the Jaguars. The Vikings, however, fell to Indianapolis This could be a buy-low spot for the Vikings after two tough losses. The Titans have also looked vulnerable in their two wins this season.
However, Kirk Cousins has historically struggled against teams above. The spread is tight as Tennessee is a 1. After the Giants fell behind early on against the Bears, they roared back to get stopped on the goal line as time expired.
This game could become an interesting matchup this week, given the injuries on both sides. San Francisco is dealing with an incredible amount of injuries this week. Jimmy Garoppolo and Raheem Mostert both left the games with injuries as well. The Giants have been playing tough in the first two weeks, and the situation could allow them to capitalize on a banged-up 49ers team.
The Patriots are coming off a tough loss in Seattle on Sunday night when they were stuffed at the goalline to lose the game. The Raiders will be coming off a short week after playing the Saints on Monday night. Although New England could not pull off the Week 2 win, something says the Bill Belichick will have this team ready to go against the Raiders. Defensively, Las Vegas is struggling to stop teams, and Cam Newton could have another big game next week. The short rest certainly puts the Raiders at a disadvantage heading into Sunday.
Cincinnati Bengals Philadelphia Eagles The Bengals have the extra rest this week after playing on Thursday night against the Browns while the Eagles fell to the Rams on Sunday. Both teams are to start the season, as one of them will try to secure their first win in Week 3. The Eagles opening at 6. The Raiders trail only the Ravens in the AFC for points scored and the Patriots put up 30 last week when they let Cam Newton rip the ball through the air. Take the Over.
Both teams are off to hot starts and have proved they can put up big offensive numbers or win with defense. Both teams have solid defensive fronts that can kill off drives and force teams to string together plays to score. Take the Under. The Texans have had the worst schedule in the league opening with the Chiefs and Ravens.
I don't think they're going to win, but I think they'll put enough of a fight to take the Over. The 49ers are beat up thanks to the turf at MetLife Stadium and return to the scene of the crime for Round 2 against New York teams. The Giants offense revolved around Saquon Barkley, so the 4-point spread for both seems about right. But, the Niners defense is superior despite suffering devastating losses.
Take San Francisco and lay the points. Kirk Cousins in struggling on offense and Minnesota's secondary is awful. For a team that made the playoffs and beat New Orleans in their yard last season, all the losses on defense have taken a toll. The Titans should win, but the odds get better if they lay 2. Take the Titans and lay the points. The Browns dominated the Bengals, but only one by five points and didn't cover the 6-point spread.
They're favored by a point more this week at -7 for both teams , but Cleveland has too many weapons on offense for the WFT to hold down. Take Cleveland and lay the points. The Eagles have been one of the biggest disappointments of so far, which makes it questionable why they're favored by 4.
I firmly believe they have a good chance to win, but I'm willing to give away points quite yet. Take Cincinnati and the points. Risk-free first bet. Terms and conditions apply. Bet now! Atlanta has a penchant for blowing leads and did it again last week at Dallas. Had they won, they likely would be a 5- or 6- point favorite over a pretty good Bears team. Instead, they're favored by 3 points on both sides.
Matt Ryan will be in his comfort zone and the Bears won't be able to keep Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley from doing damage. Take Atlanta and lay the points. I hate giving 11 points with a good team, much less a suspect team like the Colts. But, the Jets are a hot mess and will struggle to score points. The Colts could score 30 and this could still not make it over the point.
No team depends on a non-quarterback to carry their team as much as the Panthers and Christian McCaffrey. With Run CMC out, the offense will be scrambling to fill that void - something they never had to do in 50 games since he arrived. The point spread has the Chargers at 6. There are too many questions with the Panthers right now. Take the Chargers and lay the points.
The Lions are a frustrating team for bettors because they can look like world beaters one weak and a dumpster fire the next. Arizona is hitting its stride and are only a 5.
