NFL Picks Week 2: Ravens Vs. Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles and Baltimore Ravens both won their openers, and they'll meet for a Week 2 clash in Philadelphia.

The Ravens won easily on Monday night, defeating the Bengals, 44-13. Baltimore was one of the most impressive teams in the league in Week 1, looking fantastic on both sides of the ball.

The Eagles were involved with a tighter affair, getting by the Browns, 17-16, despite Michael Vick throwing four interceptions in the contest. Philly's offense amassed plenty of yards if it can manage to cut back on the turnovers.

After watching the two openers, most experts are favoring the Ravens to come out on top in Philly. Everyone that's made their picks at both ESPN and Yahoo! has gone with Ray Lewis and Baltimore. Pete Prisco of CBS is one of the few writers out there that seems to think the Eagles will be the victorious side on Sunday, and he had the following to say:

The Ravens looked great beating the Bengals. The Eagles looked awful in barely beating the Browns. So why do I like the Eagles? They're at home. They can get after Joe Flacco. And there is no way Mike Vick plays like he did against the Browns. This is where not having Terrell Suggs shows up. Eagles get it going.

The game is scheduled to kick off Sunday at 1 p.m. ET, and can be seen on CBS.
