Sam Farmer's Week 2 NFL picks

Sam Farmer, Los Angeles Times on

Published in Football

Line: Patriots by 5 1/2. O/U: 42 1/2.

Mac Jones is the real deal, and he's hard to fool for a rookie. The ball goes where it should. The Jets' defense did a decent job against Carolina, but that offense isn't quite there yet.

Prediction: Patriots 28, Jets 20

Raiders (1-0) at Steelers (1-0)

Sunday, 10 a.m.

Line: Steelers by 5 1/2. O/U: 46 1/2.


The Raiders are coming off a huge win, and Gus Bradley's defense looks really promising. But they have to go across the country to face a solid bounce-back team with a good offensive line rebuild.

Prediction: Steelers 27, Raiders 23

Saints (1-0) at Panthers (1-0)

Sunday, 10 a.m.
