Kansas City at Buffalo.... The Bills are looking to bounce back from an embarrassing performance against the Jets in week one, making what looked like an awful Jet offense look like a proverbial juggernaut. Mario Williams blamed the replacement officials for his disappointing debut, not a good omen for the Bills faithful. The Cheifs meanwhile were also lit up by an offense that looked every bit as good as advertised in the Matty Ice led Atlanta Falcons. Both defense's look much better on paper then they did on the field in week one, the question in this one is which defense will prove week one's poor effort was a fluke. The Bills lost Fred Jackson in week one for the first month of the season to a knee sprain as well as starting wide receiver David Nelson for the season, meaning that they will depend on former number 9 overall pick CJ Spiller to carry the load not only in the running game, but a great deal in the passing game as well. The Chiefs on the other hand will not be nearly as much of a one man show, Jamaal Charles looked impressive in defeat week one coming off a season ending knee injury from a season ago and Peyton Hillis is there to keep him fresh come the 4th quarter as well as handle the short tough yardage situations. Be assured that the Chiefs saw the big numbers that rookie WR Stephen Hill had against this Bills defense, so look for the more experienced and accomplished and equally physical Dwayne Bowe to be a major factor in the Chief gameplan. The Chiefs simply have too many more weapons then the already injury riddled Bills do in this one, the Chiefs will steal one on the road here.

Cleveland Browns at Cincinnati Bengals.... The Bengals will be thrilled to see the Brandon Weeden led Browns come to town after looking awful against Joe Flacco and the Ravens Monday night. Weeden simply isn't a starting caliber NFL quarterback, so look for the Bengals to get well against their division rivals in week two. The Browns have a scrappy tough defense, but they simply won't be able to put up enough points or overcome the mistakes and turnovers of their hapless offense.

New Orleans Saints at Carolina Panthers.... The Saints defense looked terrible against RG3 and the Redskins, now they will face the man who everyone compared the impressive rookie to, Cam Newton and his Panthers. It's tough to see the Drew Brees led Saints starting 0-2, look for the Saints defense to struggle, but their record setting QB will bounce back from an ordinary performance in week one to pull them out of the fire and win in a shoot-out on the road.
