New England backed for victory in Miami

Published

 

on

Week 1 of the NFL was pretty horrendous all round, so with Week 2 kicking off on Friday, a number of teams will be looking to change their fortunes.

Week 2 features 16 big games and after the Patriots beat the Steelers by a whopping 33-3, all eyes are sure to be on the New Englanders when they take on the Miami Dolphins.

The Patriots are the favourites by a mile and Miami has already suffered a crushing 59-10 defeat at the hands of Baltimore.

The fact that the Patriots are the current Super Bowl champions and are tipped for glory again this year won’t make the Dolphins much more confident.

Another big game to watch will be the Los Angeles Rams and the New Orleans Saints, as both are hungry to win. Last season each team racked up 13 victories before The Rams pipped the Saints to the post in the NFC Championship, but the game was fraught with tension and a shocking missed pass interference call that ended up leading to an NFL rule change.

Now, nearly 9 months later, the 2 teams are set to face off on the Rams home ground.

Other match ups for NFL Week 2 include:

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Carolina Panthers
San Francisco 49ers vs. Cincinnati Bengals
Los Angeles Chargers vs. Detroit Lions
Minnesota Vikings vs. Green Bay Packers
Indianapolis Colts vs. Tennessee Titans
Buffalo Bills vs. New York Giants
Seattle Seahawks vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
Dallas Cowboys vs. Washington Redskins
Arizona Cardinals vs. Baltimore Ravens
Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Houston Texans
Kansas City Chiefs vs. Oakland Raiders
Chicago Bears vs. Denver Broncos
Philadelphia Eagles vs. Atlanta Falcons
Cleveland Browns vs. New York Jets

The biggest rivalry match for Week 2 will be between the Vikings and the Packers, but the Packers will need to silence a very heavy defence if they want to come out on top.

All in all, Week 2 looks set to offer plenty of action and there may well be some surprises in there too.
