Default ProFootballTalk's Week 2 Picks

Texans at Dolphins

Florioís take: After beating the Colts in Week One of the 2010 season, the Texans lost 10 of their next 15. Though they likely wonít suffer a similar fate in 2011 after again taking down the Colts, winning at Miami against an improving offense wonít be an easy feat. The Dolphins played the Pats tough on Monday night, and it wasnít until that 14-point swing fueled by a failed fourth-and-goal and a 99-yard touchdown pass that the game was decided.

Florioís pick: Dolphins 24, Texans 21.

Rosenthalís take: Cutting Benny Sapp was an odd solution to Miamiís problems. Perhaps drinking more water during the week to avoid cramps would be a better approach. Miamiís defensive line is very deep and can slow down Houstonís rushing attack. I still like the Dolphins corners. The Dolphins didnít get their first home win until mid-November last year, but theyíll get it out of the way early this time.

Rosenthalís pick: Dolphins 27, Texans 24.

Brady shredded their D with Tecmo Bowl like numbers, a patched up O line and almost no running game.

Schaub can put up Tecmo Bowl like numbers, we have an O line that is considered one of the best units in the league and our 3rd string RB got over a 100 yards last week.

Hhhhmmmm.....PICK THE DOLPHINS!!!

I can't help but think that the addition of one David Anderson is really having a negative impact on the Texans in the Predictions department...

In all seriousness, both predictions are not way out there or anything... I can see it...

Default Re: ProFootballTalk's Week 2 Picks

Yeah, well here are Rosenthal's "winners" from Week 1: Link

Rosenthal’s take: These are the two best teams in the NFC. Both boast terrific continuity with their players and scheme, especially on offense. The Saints added bulk to their defensive line, while the Packers welcome injured players back throughout their championship roster. It’s a new year, however. And the Saints are my new conference favorites.

Rosenthal’s pick: Saints 31, Packers 28.


Rosenthal’s take: The Steelers trot out the same old defense, with nine starters over 30 by year’s end. The Ravens look much different, with big changes to the offensive line, wide receiver, and in the secondary. For Week 1, that favors the old guys. Mike Tomlin said he expects “James [Harrison] to be James.” I expect Bryant McKinnie to be Bryant McKinnie.

Rosenthal’s pick: Steelers 20, Ravens 14

Rosenthal’s take: The Bears could quickly erase all the bad vibes from the last month with a win over a quality team. Unfortunately, they play a Falcons team that is a lot more versatile on offense with Julio Jones and Harry Douglas emerging. Chicago’s so-so secondary held up last year, but it’s overdue to get exposed.

Rosenthal’s pick: Falcons 24, Bears 20.

Rosenthal’s take: Cleveland’s schedule sets up well for the Browns to be this year’s Tampa Bay. Playing the Bengals twice and the NFC West is a huge bonus. With all the conference realignment talk these days, relegating the Bengals to the NFC West actually makes sense. Perhaps they can be swapped with the Rams if St. Louis climbs above .500 this year.

Rosenthal’s pick: Browns 28, Bengals 13.

Rosenthal’s take: The Titans are one of the toughest teams to evaluate. They have new schemes on both sides of the ball, but they also boast a powerful offensive line and Chris Johnson. I’m not sure what the Jaguars do well besides push the pocket with their defensive tackles. Expect the calls for Blaine Gabbert to pick up after this one.

Rosenthal’s pick: Titans 17, Jaguars 13.

Rosenthal’s take: Does the preseason matter at all? If so, the Chiefs offense is in huge trouble. No group looked more disjointed. They haven’t solved their receiver issues and the offense line struggled badly. Buffalo’s attempts to improve their rush defense will be tested here. They’ll pass the test.

Rosenthal’s pick: Bills 26, Chiefs 21.

Rosenthal’s take: This is a rough first matchup for Philadelphia’s ever-changing offensive line. The Rams pass rush is among the league’s best and will have Michael Vick running for his life. Josh McDaniels started fast in Denver as a head coach and he’ll do it again as an offensive coordinator in St. Louis.

Rosenthal’s pick: Rams 24, Eagles 21.

Rosenthal’s take: Fun game. Everyone is on the Lions bandwagon and this is the type of game a young improving team should win. Tampa is youngrier. The Bucs are the rare team that has someone to cover Calvin Johnson (Aqib Talib) and a young quarterback with as much potential as Matthew Stafford (Josh Freeman). Plus I know Florio will pick Detroit.

Rosenthal’s pick: Bucs 31, Lions 27.

Rosenthal’s take: I picked the Giants to win the NFC East in July, and was too stubborn to change it when they started losing defensive players every week to injury. Washington’s strong preseason has Redskins fans wildly optimistic despite the strong presence of Rex Grossman. Something has to give here. I’ll say its Grossman giving the Giants turnovers and sacks.

Rosenthal’s pick: Giants 19, Redskins 10.


Rosenthal’s take: The Broncos defense can be a lot better right away with Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil rushing the passer. Their defensive tackles may get run over on the ground, but that weakness won’t show up as much if they play with the lead. The John Fox/John Elway honeymoon will have legs.

Rosenthal’s pick: Broncos 27, Raiders 17.

Dayum, that's a pretty bad winning % for Rosenthal. Just another talking head.

So, our running game, which is significantly better than the Pats, will be stopped when they really didn't stop the Pats run? Not buying it. 24-10 Texans.

If we could jump off to a big lead like we did against Miami last year it won't even be close. Even just 14 points or so. I think our defense is overall better than their offense, who played a disjointed Pats defense switching to a 4-3. We switched too, but most of our players have played together for a while.

It's funny to me that both writers pick the Dolphins to win, but...

Their Week 1 Power ranking are:

10. Texans (No. 12; 1-0): The 2011 season started the same way that the 2010 season began. The Texans need the next 15 games to go slightly better.
.
.
.
.
.

30. Dolphins (No. 29; 0-1): Yeah, that preseason No. 29 ranking for the Dolphins was wrong. It was too high.

Default Re: ProFootballTalk's Week 2 Picks

Everyone was talking about the Dolphin's "sturdy" defense, and attributing the Pats high score to Brady just being that good. Brady is good, I'm a Brady and Pats fan (originally from Massachusetts) but I didn't see anything all that sturdy about the Dolphin's defense.

Brady hardly look pressured throughout the game, and some of that comes from him just being Brady, but I think Schaub is reaching a point where has that same calmness to execute good passes, not to mention a great O-line. Combine this with all of our passing targets and I think our passing game will put up big numbers.

Add this onto our running game. The Pats barely even tested the Dolphins defense with their RBs, and when they did the Dolphins did just ok. I think even Tate could tear up that run D, let a lone a health Foster.

What I think it will come down to is the Dolphins' offense. Henne looked pretty damn good, if not a little frantic in the red zone late in the game. I also think they have the potential run the ball well against our D.

It would be a close game, but I'd still give it to the Texans if I had to guess.

If the Frank Bush Texans could demolish the Dolphins in Miami in 2009, they can do it just as easily as the Wade Phillips Texans in 2011.

Texans should be favored by at least 6.5 points this game. No way do they lose to Chad Henne.
