2014 Week 2 NFL Picks: 5* Seahawks -3.5, 4* BRONCOS -13 #freenflpicks #nflpick

[Seahawks/CHARGERS] Week 2 is always the week that we find out who is for real.   I am one that believes that the Seahawks are for real. Look for the CHARGERS rushing attack, that only powered 52 rushing yards in Arizona, to find little traction versus a Seahawks defense that allowed only 80 yards in its opener.  Particularly troubling for the Chargers is their defense is facing off with Wilson,  110.9 rating, after allowing over 400 yards in its opener.  The recent undefeated 0-4-1 historic record against the Seahawks will definitely be on their mind.

[Chiefs/BRONCOS] After getting blown out in Week 1, the Chiefs arrive as 13 point Underdogs; the largest spread over the last decade.  After an outstanding Week 1 performance, it is simply too hard to resist taking a BRONCOS team versus a injury-ridden Chiefs defense that allowed over 400 yards at Home in Week 1.  Manning powering a 111.9 rating it their opener by averaging over 12 yards per catch to all his leading receivers. Having lost by 35 points and 20 points in two of their last four visits to Denver, look for the Broncos’ stingy rushing defense that allowed only 54 yards in its opener to hold Charles down again, and turn their recent 1-4 record ATS around.

  1. LOSER – Seahawks 21, CHARGERS 30 – San Diego, CA (SportsNetwork.com) – Philip Rivers threw three touchdown passes to Antonio Gates, and the San Diego Chargers handed the reigning Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks a 30-21 loss on Sunday. Rivers went 28-of-37 passing for 284 yards and the three scores to his tight end, while Gates hauled in seven receptions for 96 yards. Nick Novak knocked down three field goals for the Chargers (1-1), who opened the season with a disappointing 18-17 setback at Arizona on Monday. San Diego running back Ryan Mathews was carted off the field early in the fourth quarter and the Chargers said after the game that they are concerned that the back has an right MCL sprain. He will undergo an MRI on Monday. Russell Wilson converted 17-of-25 passes for 202 yards and two touchdowns for Seattle (1-1), which had an eight-game winning streak snapped that dated back to last season and included the three-game run to win the Lombardi trophy. Robert Turbin and Marshawn Lynch each caught touchdown passes from Wilson, while Percy Harvin rushed for 45 yards on two carries with a touchdown in the loss.

  2. LOSER – Chiefs 17, BRONCOS 24 – Denver, CO (SportsNetwork.com) – Stopping Peyton Manning was already going to be a daunting task. Stopping him without three defensive starters only made it that much tougher. Alex Smith did all he could to keep the injury-riddled Kansas City defense off the field in the second half, but Manning tossed three touchdown passes in the first 30 minutes and Denver held off the Chiefs, 24-17, on Sunday afternoon. Defensive tackle Terrance Knighton tipped Smith’s 4th-and-goal pass to ensure the victory with 15 seconds left. The Chiefs, who held a 43-15 advantage in plays run and held the ball for 20:54 in the second half, regained possession at their own 34-yard line with 3:20 remaining after Brandon McManus booted a 20-yard field goal to give Denver a 24-17 advantage. Kansas City was aided by a trio of penalties on the drive, the first one an offsides call that negated an Aqib Talib 41-yard interception return for a touchdown on a 3rd-and-5. Smith hit Travis Kelce for 20 yards on an ensuing 3rd-and-9 and the Chiefs’ luck continued when it appeared that DeMarcus Ware strip-sacked Smith from behind two plays later. Nate Irving recovered the fumble, but it was ruled that Smith’s arm was moving forward following a review and KC kept the ball. A backpedaling Smith lofted a 21-yard completion to Dwayne Bowe to set up a 1st-and-goal from the 9, but Denver’s defense stiffened up from there.
