Live Blog - Week 2 NFL Late Games Thread

Who do you got this afternoon? I took the Dolphins, Ravens and Eagles.

With the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs having played on Thursday Night Football, we've got ourselves a short list of afternoon games. The Broncos won that game by the way, in case you were living under a rock or have forgotten. Just thought I'd remind everyone.

The first two games should be fairly easy picks with the Miami Dolphins facing the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Baltimore Ravens travelling to face the Oakland Raiders. I think the Dolphins game might be close, but the Ravens should blow out the Raiders on the road. The Raiders pass defense is a joke.

The big game is between the Dallas Cowboys who will travel to face the Philadelphia Eagles. The Cowboys escape with a win last week against the New York Giants, but this week I think Demarco Murray runs hog wild against his old team in a bit of retribution for kicking him to the curb last offseason. This is the kind of game that could quickly turn embarrassing for the Cowboys if they struggle offensively like they did early on against the Giants last week.

Who are you rooting for in these early games?
