Looking at expert predictions


Despite a loss in their opener at Green Bay, the New Orleans Saints are the strong favorite by our panel of experts in their Week 2 game against Chicago.

All eight experts, plus Accuscore and Pigskin Pick ‘Em have the Saints winning against the Bears. The panel also likes the Falcons over the Eagles on Sunday night. The Falcons are picked eight out of 10 times.

Not surprisingly, it’s a sweep when it comes to the Green Bay Packers and Carolina Panthers. All 10 picks are for the Packers. Yeah, Cam Newton threw for more yards in his debut than any player in history, but the Panthers are still a very long shot against the defending Super Bowl champion.

The panel was originally divided 6-4 on the game between the Minnesota Vikings and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but the final picks now have eight selecting the Vikings to come out on top.
