Kansas City

KRYK PICK: Can the Ea­gles open 2-0 on the road? If they were play­ing this week at the Colts or Jets, sure. Not at Kansas City. Look, the Ea­gles’ pass rush is for real. Chiefs won’t put up 500+ again. But they’ll win.

Pitts­burgh

KRYK PICK: If the Vik­ings’ of­fen­sive ex­plo­sion Mon­day against the Saints wasn’t a fluke, this could be the game of the week. But how bad is Sam Brad­ford’s knee swelling? Steel­ers will be sharp in home opener.

Hur­ri­cane post­poned the Bucs’ opener. They’re over­rested. Al­though Chicago played the Fal­cons close in Week 1, Jameis Winston and co. aim to prove just how high­pow­ered their ’17 at­tack will be.

New Eng­land

KRYK PICK: If an­other ter­ri­ble Saints de­fence can make Sam Brad­ford look like Tom Brady, what will ac­tual Tom Brady do to them? An an­gry, em­bar­rassed Tom Brady, even with­out Amen­dola? Pats win a shootout. 4:05 p.m. ET KRYK PICK: Dol­phins starters haven’t played in three weeks. Jay Cut­ler has taken just 32 snaps since Oc­to­ber, all in the pre­sea­son. So yeah: Miami rust. Be­fore hun­dreds of their own new fans, Charg­ers will pre­vail.

Los An­ge­les

4:05 p.m. ET KRYK PICK: Let’s re­view the only ways the Jets can win: [Er­ror 404 — This file does not ex­ist].

Oak­land

fan­tas­tic in wip­ing out the Giants on Sun­day night. It was an em­phatic mes­sage. O-line and D-line both dom­i­nated — a sur­prise. And road games don’t scare this bunch. 4:25 p.m. ET KRYK PICK: The Red­skins blew it in their home opener. Can’t and won’t do it two weeks in a row. DT Aaron Don­ald, who ended his hold­out this week, is back for the Rams. Prob­a­bly won’t play much. Take the Red­skins.

Washington

4:25 p.m. EDT KRYK PICK: When the Sea­hawks are steam­ing mad, as they were af­ter some game-chang­ing ques­tion­able calls in a loss last week at Green Bay, look out. Aw­ful O-line and all, they’ll crush a re­build­ing Nin­ers team.

Seat­tle

8:30 p.m. ET KRYK PICK: You mean to tell me you think the Lions can open the sea­son 2-0 by de­feat­ing any team, let alone a New York team, on the road, on a Mon­day night? Well think again. Giants can’t af­ford to start 0-2.

New York

AP

Tom Brady and the Pats will look to bounce back from a rough Week 1 loss by lay­ing waste to the Saints pu­trid de­fence in New Or­leans. Right, Jameis Winston and the Bucs make their sea­son de­but vs. Chicago.
