Week 2 NFL

Updated: Sep 17, 2023

Week 1 Summary: NFL was a shit show


Week 2 Premium Plays:


Dolphins -2.5 (2 units): Yes, it is a division game. Yes, it is in Foxborough. Yes, Tua is 4-0 against the Patriots. I am a firm believer the teams that did not play starters in the preseason started slow week 1 compared to teams that got their starters reps in the preseason. To that point, the Pats were able to keep it close against a foe that is above their weight class in the Philadelphia Eagles. Dolphins seemed to avoid the Week 1 woes, at least on offense. I don’t see the Patriots defense being able to consistently stop the Dolphins offense. Dolphins swim circles around the Pats en route to a 31-20 win.


Bengals -3 (2 units): Injuries, injuries, injuries. Baltimore Ravens have injuries at key positions all over the field. Ronnie Stanley, Lindenbaum, Simpson, Humphreys, Williams, are all starters for the Baltimore Ravens that will not be taking the field this week. Yes, the Bengals looked awful in week 1 but I am charging that to no preseason action (see above). Bengals Dlineis going to push Lamar in to the RB1 roll he fits so well resulting in a one dimensional Ravens offense. Bengals out muscle the Ravens 24-17.


ADDITION: (12:37 PM, 09/17/23)

Packers +3 (3 units): HE IS RISEN! HE IS RISEN INDEED! I have risen with a crippling hangover. Packers +3 is about as free as it gets. Falcons should not be laying 3 to anyone let alone the Green Bay Packers and their defense.


Rapid Fire Leans (0.5 units each)


Packers ML (+140): Would have this as a premium play if Aaron Jones was suiting up in Atlanta. Packers are a well run organization with a good roster outside of the question mark at QB. I think Jordan Love gets it done against a Falcons team that refuses to use its best offensive weapons in Kyle Pitts and Drake London. I think the Packers win a close one.


Jags +3.5: Gut feeling. I think the Chiefs look better this week and likely pull out a win but I like the Jags with the hook at home in a year that feels like they are primed to make a run in a week division. Jags keep it between the number. Chiefs 27 – Jags 24


Seahawks +5: See week 1 Saints/Titans write up. Complete cock-around game. Going to be a fun one but Lions will come back to earth and give us an entertaining track meet.


No time for sicko plays, I gotta drink.


Respectfully,


William Tickets, esq
