What an ugly week it was for picks. Week 2 was brutal on our staff picks overall, with only one prognosticator not with a losing record (yours truly). It was a week of upsets, including the Raiders taking down the Ravens -- a game the staff unanimously had going the other way.

The other big ones that wiped out the staff last week were the Chiefs losing to the Broncos, Titans falling to the Browns (who the Raiders face this week), the Rams losing in Washington, the Bucs beating the (S)aints, the Jaguars taking out the Dolphins, and the Colts losing to the Jets.

Now let's pick up the pieces this week and try to recover.
