There are currently nine NFL teams that are 0-2 to begin this season. This week will expose which teams are serious about tanking for Caleb Williams and for Drake Maye.

Last week's record: 10-6.

Overall record so far: 21-11.

All times listed below are Eastern Standard Time (EST).

Thursday, September 21st

New York Giants (1-1) at San Francisco 49ers (2-0) - 8:15 PM.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley is out for the next three weeks. Pick: Niners.

Sunday, September 24th

Tennessee Titans (1-1) at Cleveland Browns (1-1) - 1 PM.

Browns RB Nick Chubb is out for the season. Also, Browns QB Deshaun Watson showed that he still can not finish without some help in Cleveland's loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers Monday night. Pick: Titans.

Atlanta Falcons (2-0) at Detroit Lions (1-1) - 1 PM.

Falcons RB Bijan Robinson is for real. The Lions are not for real after losing to the Seattle Seahawks last week. Pick: Falcons.

New Orleans Saints (2-0) at Green Bay Packers (1-1) - 1 PM.

The Saints defense will be the key in this game. Pick: Saints.

Denver Broncos (0-2) at Miami Dolphins (2-0) - 1 PM.

Miami QB Tua Tagovailoa is playing at a higher level this season. Pick: Dolphins.

Los Angeles Chargers (0-2) at Minnesota Vikings (2-0) - 1 PM.

The Vikings corrected their mistake in the off-season of letting former starting RB Dalvin Cook go by trading for Cam Akers earlier this week. Plus, Minnesota is stating that Akers could play on Sunday. For the Chargers, RB Austin Ekeler will more than likely be out for this game. Pick: Vikings.

New England Patriots (0-2) at New York Jets (1-1) - 1 PM.

The Patriots have proven in their first two games of the season that they have a problem finding that play to win in the fourth quarter. Pick: Jets.

Buffalo Bills (1-1) at Washington Commanders (2-0) - 1 PM.

Buffalo appeared to have fixed some of their issues last Sunday. Pick: Bills.

Houston Texans (0-2) at Jacksonville Jaguars (1-1) - 1 PM.

Jacksonville should bounce back this week. Pick: Jaguars.

Indianapolis Colts (1-1) at Baltimore Ravens (2-0) - 1 PM.

Colts starting QB Anthony Richardson is still in concussion protocol. Pick: Ravens.

Carolina Panthers (0-2) at Seattle Seahawks (1-1) - 4:05 PM.

Panthers QB Bryce Young will more than likely be out for this game after suffering an ankle injury on Monday. Pick: Seahawks.

Chicago Bears (0-2) at Kansas City Chiefs (1-1) - 4:25 PM.

The Bears passing on drafting Patrick Mahomes is the worst drafting decision in NFL history. The Bears also have other troubles going on with their former defensive coordinator being raided by the FBI earlier this week as if he lived at Mar-a-Lago and QB Justin Fields blaming his horrific throwing on the coaches instead of on him not throwing the ball unless a receiver is five yards open on the field. Pick: Chiefs.

Pittsburgh Steelers (1-1) at Las Vegas Raiders (1-1) - 8:20 PM.

Pittsburgh's defense will look to win another game on Sunday after scoring two TD's in Monday's victory against the Browns. Pick: Steelers.

Monday, September 25th

Philadelphia Eagles (2-0) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-0) - 7:15 PM.

The Buccaneers are off to a surprising start, but that was because they played the Vikings and the Bears. Pick: Eagles.

Los Angeles Rams (1-1) at Cincinnati Bengals (0-2) - 8:15 PM.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow re-aggravated his injured calf on Sunday and is now listed as day-to-day. Pick: Rams.
