WEEK 2 5 VITAL QUESTIONS
■ Can the Falcons do a number on the Packers again?
In their fancy new digs, the Falcons hope to prove that under whichever Atlanta roof they play, they still own the Packers. But do they?
■ Is Sam Bradford really that good now?
The Vikings QB played like an all-pro in carving up the Saints on Monday. If he can do it again at Pittsburgh, sore knee and all, he’ll make more believers.
■ Are Patriots defenders really that awful?
Against the Chiefs a week ago Thursday, they looked slow, slow to react, overmatched and confounded. Drew Brees and the Saints might do it again.
■ How badly will the Raiders crush the Jets?
No offence, Buffalo, but if the Bills could rip up the Jets for more than 400 yards, imagine what Derek Carr, his receivers and Beast Mode will do.
■ How horrible are the Colts?
Never mind the Jets. The Colts might actually be the NFL’s worst team. Last week they lost 46-9 to a Rams team that lost 12 of 16 last year. Think about that.
