Week 2 brings new NFL stadiums to your eyeballs: the Atlanta Falcons’ Mercedes-Benz Stadium and the Los Angeles Chargers’ StubHub Center. Week 2 also brings another round of picks to your blood-shot wallets:

Texans 17, Bengals 16: If you get blanked in your home opener, you will lose there again four days later. Happy 22nd birthday, Deshaun Watson, the Texans’ ninth starting QB since 2014.

49ers 21, Seahawks 20: Rain is a needed equalizer against the 14-point favorites, allowing the 49ers to steal a franchise-turning win on the road like October 2011 at Philadelphia.

Raiders 31, Jets 10: Is this the Raiders’ final season opener in Oakland, or is it next year, or 2019? It’s time to feel nostalgic, especially with the A’s now planning to also ditch the Coliseum for greener pastures (with less sewage) up I-880.

Ravens 16, Browns 14: The Indians can’t lose, and the Browns can’t win. Fair trade, right, Cleveland?

Panthers 23, Bills 13: The Original Panthers win their home opener against The Buffalo Panthers, whose coach and general manager and No. 2 running back are Carolina transplants.

Cardinals 23, Colts 20: Andrew Luck’s agent disputed rumors that the injured Colts quarterback wants a trade. Might behoove the Cardinals to check on that while in town.

Buccaneers 20, Bears 7: Jameis Winston wins his season debut against his former understudy, Mike Glennon, who soon will be usurped by his own understudy, Mitchell Trubisky.

Chargers 26, Dolphins 24: Hurricane Irma forced the Dolphins to practice this week in Oxnard. Dean Spanos forced the Chargers to move out of San Diego. Natural disasters come many ways.

Cowboys 30, Broncos 14: The Cowboys start 2-0. The last time they did that was in 2015, when they lost 12 of their next 14.

Washington 24, Rams 17: Kirk Cousins reportedly gave Sean McVay, the Rams coach and former Washington coordinator, a signed jersey that says, “I owe you my career.” When the 49ers visit next month, Cousins can give Kyle Shanahan his bank’s routing number for 2018 free agency.

Titans 24, Jaguars 21: Marcus Mariota avenges last season’s broken leg by beating the one-week wonders known as the Sacksonville Jaguars.

Chiefs 31, Eagles 16: Flash forward to NFL Honors show in five months: Alex Smith accepts the NFL MVP award, Andy Reid is Coach of the Year and Kareem Hunt is Rookie of the Year.
