For some teams playing a real game is probably what they needed to chisel off some of the rust from seven months of inactivity. A common strategy used by coaches is to keep starters and regulars on the shelf during exhibition games. That’s a sound game plan from a health standpoint, but we saw a number of teams look rusty and out of sync in Week 1. It even got to the point where Philadelphia Eagles coach Nick Sirianni second-guessed his plan of sitting Jalen Hurts the entire preseason. At one point during their game with New England, the Eagles had four straight three-and-outs. Last season with Hurts behind center the Eagles never had that many three-and-outs in a game.

The important thing is winning, which the Eagles did thanks to their defense and special teams. Philly forced a pair of turnovers with their lone interception resulting in a 70-yard return for a score by Darius Slay. And Jake Elliott made all four field goal attempts, including two beyond 50 yards, in the 25-20 win. The Eagles get the betting week started hosting the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday Night Football as a 7.5-point favorite on the opening NFL betting line.

Week 2 also features a Monday Night Football doubleheader with the hosts looking for their first win. The No. 1 overall pick in the recent draft makes his home debut when the Carolina Panthers welcome NFC South rival New Orleans. Bryce Young tossed a pair of interceptions in the Panthers 24-10 loss to Atlanta on Sunday. The Saints had a better outcome with their new QB beating Tennessee 16-15 with Derek Carr throwing for 305 yards and a TD. The Saints opened as a 3-point favorite.

The nightcap features another division matchup with AFC North foes Cleveland and Pittsburgh hooking up. The Steelers were embarrassed by San Francisco in the opener, 30-7, managing just 239 total yards against last season’s top ranked defense. Kenny Pickett tossed a pair of interceptions and was sacked five times. The Steelers have won three of the last four meetings and they are 6-1 ATS in the last seven encounters.

Not counting the records of Monday Night Football combatants Buffalo and the Jets, there will be only two games featuring unbeatens in Week 2. The surprising Rams host their in-state and division rival San Francisco in Sunday’s late window. The Rams are the biggest dog on the early board getting 8-points. San Francisco is 8-1 SU and ATS in the last nine meetings, but the lone setback was a big one. The Rams won the NFC Championship in 2022 en route to the Super Bowl title.

For the first time since 1992 the Packers opened a season with a quarterback not named Favre or Rodgers, and the result was exciting. Jordan Love tossed the first of three TD passes on Green Bay’s first possession and the Pack rolled to a 38-20 win over Chicago. The Pack visits Atlanta on Sunday laying 1-point on the opening line.

It turned out to be a good opening weekend for underdogs with teams catching points on the closing line winning seven games outright while going 9-6 ATS. The Lions got the week started beating defending champs Kansas City 21-20 as a 4-point dog on Thursday night. The biggest upset winner was the Los Angeles Rams beating Seattle 30-13 as a 4.5-point dog. And for the most part the offenses were a little behind with seven of the 30 teams reaching the 30-point mark and the UNDER going 11-4.
