2022 NFL Week 2 Game Picks, Predictions: Battered Bucs will get everything Saints have in divisional bout

The Chargers already lost, so Sunday we all just get to be football fans.

NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Dallas Cowboys Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Week two of the 2022 regular season was kicked off with an incredible matchup between two elite quarterbacks on Sunday night. In a game where both quarterbacks made their fair share of highlight reel-worthy plays, only one could end up the victor in the end.

The early window of games today is highlighted by Patriots (-3)-Steelers, Ravens (-3.5)-Dolphins, and Saints-Buccaneers (-2.5). That last game should be quite interesting as Tom Brady’s offensive line is still banged up and that Saints defense is once again one of the most-intimidating in the league.

As for the afternoon slate, I can’t say I’m too excited about many of these matchups. I was very intrigued by Cowboys-Bengals (-7.5) but that game lost a lot of luster following the injury to Dak Prescott. After their win against the Broncos last week, the Seahawks heading to San Francisco (-9) might end up being a fun one, especially as a heated divisional matchup.

Tonight’s night cap is the historic rivalry between the Packers (-10) and Bears, although it hasn’t been much of a rivalry as of late. Regardless, here’s to hoping for some quality football.

As always, all of today’s odds are from the folks at DraftKings Sportsbook.
