  • New England Patriots (-4) at New York Jets 

Sunday, 1 p.m., CBS 

It’s a battle of rookie quarterbacks in Mac Jones and Zach Wilson, and it comes down to which quarterback can be more efficient. Wilson completed 54.1 percent of his passes and took sacks in Week 1. Jones completed 74.4 percent and took one sack. The Patriots win a tight one.

Pick: Patriots 20, Jets 17

  • Denver Broncos (-6) at Jacksonville Jaguars 

Sunday, 1 p.m., CBS

Is the Urban Meyer era already in jeopardy? It will be a challenge against Denver’s Teddy Bridgewater, who had the second highest completion percentage in Week 1 at 77.8. Jacksonville needs to get more of a running game going behind Carlos Hyde and James Robinson. Still, it’s the home opener or Trevor Lawrence, and we think he delivers a memorable moment.

Pick: Jaguars 21, Broncos 20

  • Buffalo Bills (-3.5) at Miami Dolphins 

Sunday, 1 p.m., FOX 

The Bills were upset in Week 1, which puts more urgency on a road AFC East matchup against an improved Dolphins team. Josh Allen is 5-1 as a starter against Miami but oddsmakers have overrated the Bills this season due to their solid ATS record and playoff run last season.

Pick: Bills 28, Dolphins 27

  • San Francisco 49ers (-3.5) at Philadelphia Eagles 

Sunday, 1 p.m., FOX 

This is one of the few NFC matchups between 1-0 teams, and the 49ers looked like a Super Bowl contender with a healthier team. Deebo Samuel and George Kittle will create mismatches, and San Francisco will build an early lead. The Eagles rushed for 173 yards in Week 1. San Francisco will make that job a lot more difficult.

Pick: 49ers 28, Eagles 21

  • Los Angeles Rams (-4.5) at Indianapolis Colts 

Sunday, 1 p.m., FOX 

The Colts dominated time of possession in Week 1 but simply couldn’t finish drives for touchdowns. Matthew Stafford enjoyed a stellar debut with the Rams, but this is one of those time-zone trap games that could lead to a closer game than expected. The Rams have been a .500 team on the road the last two seasons. Colts defense has just enough to Hang in!

Pick: Colts 28, Rams 26

  • Las Vegas Raiders at Pittsburgh Steelers (-6.5)  

Sunday, 1 p.m., CBS

The Steelers silenced some critics with a key victory against Buffalo in Week 2. Now, they get the Raiders on a short week. Look for rookie running back Najee Harris to see better results in his second game, and T.J. Watt will ignite the pass rush. Steelers much underrated this year.

Pick: Steelers 30, Raiders 20

  • Cincinnati Bengals at Chicago Bears (-3.5)  

Sunday, 1 p.m., FOX

The Bengals still have work to do, but there is a belief around No. 1 pick Joe Burrow that showed in the overtime victory against the Vikings. Chicago needs to move Justin Fields from role player to starter to start the same chain reaction. Instead, Burrow will engage in a duel with former Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton. Ja’Marr Chase may play hero again but the Bears are not as bad as last week’s score vs Rams. Bears laying short price at home.

Pick: Bears 23 Bengals 16

  • Houston Texans at Cleveland Browns (-12.5)

Sunday, 1 p.m., CBS

The Browns lost a heart-breaking opener to the Chiefs, but Baker Mayfield proved the Super Bowl-contender hype is justified. Tyrod Taylor, who Mayfield replaced in Cleveland, makes his return with a lesser supporting cast. This is the type of game the Browns should control from start to finish. But they are coming off emotional loss on road which is never good in the NFL. Texans for backdoor cover!

Pick: Browns 33, Texans 23

  • New Orleans Saints (-3) at Carolina Panthers 

Sunday, 1 p.m., FOX

The Saints were masterful in attacking the Packers in Week 1, and Jameis Winston proved he can be effective in a high-percentage offense built around Alvin Kamara. New Orleans’ defense also is improved, and they’ll force a few turnovers from Sam Darnold. New Orleans is a road favorite we like. They are 8-3 ATS as a road favorite since 2019.

Pick: Saints 24, Panthers 17

  • Minnesota Vikings at Arizona Cardinals (-3.5) 

Sunday, 4:05 p.m., FOX

Kyler Murray flourished in Week 1, and the Cardinals showed an improved defense with bookends Chandler Jones and J.J. Watt. Can they win a grind-it-out-game against Minnesota, which will slow that tempo around Dalvin Cook? We’re going to trust Arizona.

Pick: Cardinals 27, Vikings 23

  • Atlanta Falcons at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-12.5) 

Sunday, 4:05 p.m., FOX

Cue the Tom Brady-Atlanta jokes. There won’t be a need for a giant comeback in this one. Brady averaged 394.5 passing yards in the two meetings against the Falcons last season, and another monster game awaits.

Pick: Buccaneers 35, Falcons 20

  • Tennessee Titans at Seattle Seahawks (-5.5) 

Sunday, 4:25 p.m., CBS

We’re tempted to take the Titans here because of the desperation factor, but the defense was shaky in Week 1 and Russell Wilson can replicate all those issues for the defense. Both teams light it up in the passing game, but Seattle survives.

Pick: Seahawks 32, Titans 29

  • Dallas Cowboys at Los Angeles Chargers (-2.5) 

Sunday, 4:25 p.m., CBS

The Chargers won on the road in the opener, and they have a chance to drop Dallas to 0-2. Justin Herbert will enjoy another 300-yard game, but Dak Prescott keeps that Dallas offense moving. Per usual, the Cowboys play in one of the most-entertaining games of the day.

Pick: Cowboys 33, Chargers 31
