Week 2 NFL Picks: Can Cowboys Beat The 2015 Preseason World Champions?

The BTB writers weigh in with their picks for the Week 2 games.

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

At the end of Week 2, no more than 13 teams will be able to claim a perfect 2-0 record, leaving at least 19 clubs at 1-1 or 0-2. We know that since realignment in 2002, 61 of the 106 teams that started 2-0 also made the playoffs, which should be an extra incentive for the Cowboys as they face the 2015 Preseason World Champion Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles in turn would like to avoid an 0-2 start, as only 10 of the last 107 teams to start the season 0-2 made the playoffs.

Below are our Week 2, 2015 picks. Agree, disagree? And do you think the Cowboys can pull off the upset against the preseason champs? Let us know in the comments section.
