18. Joe Flacco and the Jets win again…convincingly

The New York Jets pulled off an improbable comeback victory in Week 2 over the Cleveland Browns. Joe Flacco was out there wheeling and dealing like it was the 2012 playoffs or something. What got into this guy?

Not only was Flacco out there making plays, but he was also distributing the ball all around to the Jets’ new plethora of receiving targets. It was a sight to behold. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that Flacco gets the job done again in Week 3. The Jets are taking on the Cincinnati Bengals, who are a shocking 0-2 team. Could the Bengals start the season 0-3 with a loss to the Jets?

Robert Saleh might just have this Jets crew believing after that Week 2 miracle.

17. Davante Adams scores three touchdowns in a win

The Las Vegas Raiders looked like they were cruising to a win over Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals in Week 2…until they weren’t. The Cardinals came storming back and the Raiders blew their second straight game to open the season. It was an ugly loss at home for the Raiders, but will they bounce back in Week 3?

I think the Raiders are going to force-feed their new best offensive weapon, Davante Adams, who has already been targeted a whopping 24 times in the Raiders’ first two games. I think Adams will get three touchdowns in this game for the Raiders, and Vegas will get on the board for its first win of the 2022 season in convincing fashion over the suddenly hapless Titans.
