New Orleans starts divisional play with a big home game against the Falcons. Atlanta stuttered in their opening game at Pittsburgh but looked more like the Falcons we know when they disposed of Arizona in a 41-7 beat-down. Matt Ryan will need to play an error-free game to keep Atlanta in contention on this road trip as this Saints defense knows how to force turnovers. After two weeks of mediocre play, I like the Saints’ offense to finally wake up in this game and pick up the win.

Over in the AFC East the Dolphins lead the way with a 2-0 start to the season. Miami welcomes the Jets to town this Sunday in a game that promises to be big on defense. These teams have combined to concede just 44 points between them in the first two weeks of the season. The Jets are on a high after Mark Sanchez put in his best ever performance in the NFL against the Patriots. Whether he can repeat the feat against the Dolphins is another story however as Miami will bring some big pressure on Sunday. I expect this game to be low scoring, with home advantage proving the difference in the end.

The Chicago Bears carry an unlikely 2-0 record into their meeting with Green Bay, another 2-0 team. A controversial call helped Chicago beat Detroit while the Bears outsmarted Dallas, despite giving up 374 passing yards. Lovie Smith should consider a second career as a magician if he pulls a win out of his hat this week. The Packers looked solid against the Eagles and cruised past the Bills, establishing Green Bay as the team to beat in the NFC North. I like the Packers to move to 3-0 this weekend.

The team that used to be the Cleveland Browns meet the new Cleveland Browns this Sunday, or in other words the Ravens host Cleveland in AFC North action this weekend. The big story going into this game is Baltimore’s failure to make the most of the offensive weapons at Joe Flacco’s disposal in the first two games of the season. All that talk will end on Sunday as the Ravens will be much too strong for Cleveland.
