Nover: Taylor Prop Didn't Quite Pay Out

It's a strong statement, but I'll go ahead and make it: Tyrod Taylor is more dangerous than Cam Newton. Both quarterbacks are highly mobile, excellent runners. Taylor gets the edge because he has superior skill position weapons.

Before preseason you wouldn't dare to make a Newton-Taylor comparison without getting laughed out of the room. Few could envision Taylor beating out veteran Matt Cassel and former Bills No. 1 draft pick EJ Manuel for the starting spot. Many thought Taylor wouldn't even make the team let alone be named the starter.

Manziel, Mariota, Winston QB Prop Bets

The Johnny Manziel era in Cleveland might have started last week, when Josh McCown suffered a concussion. With the possibility that Manziel is the new signal caller for the Browns, Bovada has released a bunch of props for the sophomore quarterback.

After stepping under center in the final moments of the first quarter in Week 1, Manziel threw for 182 yards with one touchdown and one interception. The happy-footed quarterback also rushed for 35 yards on five carries.

NFL Week 2 Expert Betting Odds Picks

Hold off the Chip Kelly Hall of Fame talk.

Kelly's coaching reputation took a hit following Monday's road upset loss to Atlanta in which the Eagles played flat for a half and 2014 rushing leader DeMarco Murray ran for a mere nine yards. Those are on Kelly.

I do see the Eagles, though, bouncing back at home against Dallas winning by at least a touchdown.
