My NFL Picks Week 2: The Vikings open their new stadium against the Packers and Peyton’s former teams meet

With just one week of the 2016 NFL season in the books, we’re still trying to get a sense of how good or bad some teams are. There are a few notable matchups in Week 2, beginning with a Thursday night battle between AFC East rivals when the Jets visit the Bills. QB Jimmy Garoppolo looks to go 2-0 as a fill-in for Tom Brady on Sunday as the Patriots visit the Dolphins in the other AFC East game. A new era begins for the Vikings with the first regular-season game played at their new stadium, US Bank Stadium, against their NFC North rivals, the Packers. Peyton Manning’s two former teams play each other in Denver as the Colts look to get in the win column against the Broncos, who pulled off a somewhat-surprising victory over Cam Newton and the Panthers in Week 1. I went 9-7 last week, though I missed a couple of those losses by just .5 points. I’m using the lines from ESPN’s Pigskin Pick ‘Em game. My picks are in bold and my survivor pool pick is in red
