Texans +7: This is a gut-check game for Houston. Are they a team other teams should fear or are they on their way to a(nother) disappointing season.
Packers -9: The Bengals aren't exactly known for having the best character. After last week's devastating loss, does anyone think they'll respond with a great performance? Count me among the non-believers.
49ers -1: San Fran has the most impressive showing in my mind during Week 1. We have no idea how good Seattle is since they only had to play the Rams at home.
Lions +10: AP might run for 350 yards but I think Detroit makes it interesting.
Giants +3: Although not overly impressive in Week 1, the G-Men have a solid defense and a capable offense.
Survivor Pick: Packers
Week 1: 3-2 (Survivor - 1-0)
Season Record: 3-2 (Survivor - 1-0 - Ravens)
