Tom's Take: Week Two's lead NFL analyst, Tom Marino, takes a look at the Week 2 slate of games and projects the winners. Check out his picks inside...

Bolded teams are the projected winners

Atlanta at Jacksonville - The Jaguars are better both on paper and on the field. They're not going to lose a second home game in this young season.

Buffalo at Pittsburgh - A home victory, but it won't be easy. Hard-luck Bills play hard, but don't have the depth or the offensive firepower.

Cincinnati at Cleveland - The Bengals dominated the Browns in '06, and I see no reason that their '07 matchup will be any different.

Green Bay at NY Giants - Lots of holes on this Giants squad but even without some key personnel, I like their chances versus the Pack.

Houston at Carolina - Panthers appear to have too much firepower for the new-look Texans. Look for the Panthers to shut down the Texans' run game.

Indianapolis at Tennessee - Indy has not forgotten their Week 13 loss to the Titans last season. Peyton gives the champs a huge advantage.

New Orleans at Tampa Bay - Expect Brees to rebound from a disappointing season opener versus Indy, and for Saints DEs to put plenty of pressure on Tampa Bay QB Jeff Garcia.

San Francisco at St. Louis - Both squads were unimpressive in season openers. I look for "Monday night blues" to be the difference in this Rams victory.

Dallas at Miami - Expect the Cowboys to play better defensively and have to much talent on offense for the Dolphins.

Minnesota at Detroit - I'm going to say it just one more time, this Lions squad is for real folks! Vikings QB Tarvaris Jackson is not yet ready to engage in a shootout with the Lions' passing game.

Seattle at Arizona - It was frightening to see just how bad the Cardinals looked Monday night. A short week doesn't make it any easier, but they should keep it close at home.

Kansas City at Chicago - I see the Chiefs as having absolutely no chance versus the Monsters of the Midway. Even with their lack of offensive punch, I see this as the Bears winning in a rout.

NY Jets at Baltimore - Even if the Jets were to steal their signs, look for the Ravens defense to totally shut down the Jets offense.

Oakland at Denver - Broncos coach Mike Shanahan has never forgiven Raiders owner Al Davis for his 1989 firing and points to this match up each season.

San Diego at New England - Chargers have been pointing to this game since April. Distractions will play a major part in this week's upset special.

Washington at Philadelphia - Expect McNabb and the special teams play to improve significantly in Week 2. The Skins' tough, young defensive unit will keep them in this contest.
