NFL Picks Week 2: Packers Vs. Panthers

The Packers head to Carolina to play Cam Newton and the Panthers on Sunday. Is anyone picking the home team?

NFL picks are usually a pretty controversial topic, but the Week 2 meeting between the Green Bay Packers and Carolina Panthers goes a bit against the grain. Yes, despite Cam Newton's Heismanesque performance in his NFL debut, the Packers are being picked by nearly every NFL expert on the internet.

Yahoo! Sports hadn't submitted their Week 2 picks when this article was being published, but luckily SB Nation's Andrew Sharp has submitted his Week 2 NFL picks. Sharp went with the Packers, but gave some wise advice after noting the fact that people are still skeptical of Newton -- despite his Week 1 performance.

Bet accordingly. [you'll still probably lose, but at least you'll feel smart]

The group over at ESPN, from Merril Hoge to Chris Mortensen to their Accuscore computer pick'em system, has decided that the the away team will leave Carolina with a victory as they all decided to pick the Packers -- one of nine games the World Wide Leader's crew was unanimous in picking.

Nothing new from the crew at CBS Sports, either, as Will Brinson, Mike Freeman, Pete Prisco and the rest of the crew all decided to go with Green Bay. Considering the Packers vs. Panthers odds currently favor the away team by more than 10 points, that isn't exactly a surprising revelation.

All that said, it seems safe to pick the Packers this weekend -- beware of Cam Newton, however, as Week 1 might not have been as much of a fluke as it originally seemed.
