2010 NFL Week 2 Predictions: In the 2010 NFL week 2 predictions battle of the birds, the Arizona Cardinals vs. Atlanta Falcons in Atlanta in an NFC conference NFL predictions match-up during week two of the NFL season. The Las Vegas odds makers have installed the Falcons as -7(+100) NFL predictions week 2 favorites at home. These two teams met in the NFC playoffs in 2008 and the Cardinals prevailed with a 30-24 NFL predictions victory.
The Cardinals (1-0), minus key players such as Kurt Warner and Anquan Boldin, are a much different offensive team yet they managed to defeat the Rams 17-13 in their week 1 NFL predictions contest of the NFL season.
Derek Anderson is the new gunslinger in Arizona and the ex-Brown quarterback had a good start to the 2010 NFL predictions season, throwing for 297 yards and the winning touchdown to wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald. Anderson has compiled good statistics while in Cleveland and might be a good alternative to bust Matt Leinart. With Beanie Wells injured heading into week 2 of the NFL predictions season, the Cards still managed a ground game behind Tim Hightower and LaRod Stephen-Howlings. Fitzgerald is still Fitzgerald and Steve Breason took over the Boldin role well with 7 catches and 132 yards. Arizona, though, lost four fumbles in the week 1 NFL predictions contest and Anderson was constantly harassed, if not sacked.
Anderson and company will have to pick up the pace in this week 2 NFL predictions battle against the Falcons (0-1), who usually play inspired defense at home. Atlanta’s defense played well enough to win their NFL predictions match-up against the Pittsburgh Steelers in their 15-9 overtime loss. Defensively, linebacker Curtis Lofton led the way with 11 tackles on a team that controlled the ground game until the last 50-yard burst by Rashard Mendenhall on the winning touchdown run and kept Dennis Dixon and the Steelers passing game in check as well. The Steelers played conservatively with their young quarterback and Anderson will not. He will throw the ball and throw the ball deep.
The Vegas spreads in this 2010 NFL weeks 2 predictions contests might be too high. If Beanie Wells can play, the Cards can run the ball more effectively, opening the way for Anderson. Teams from the west rarely win on east coast trips, especially at 1pm games, so give the nod to the Falcons but look for the Cards to cover in a closer NFL predictions battle than Vegas is predicting.
