I'm getting in late but am afforded the rare choice between 2 Monday games. I'll go Houston.

Several interesting choices. The Pats are an obvious one but they have an easy schedule and I'm not sure I want that option off my board this early.

The Falcons shouldn't be 0-2 so a home date against the Rams is a good choice but, again, do I want the Falcons off my selection board this early?

Likewise, the Packers ought not start 0-2 and they have a home date against a Redskin team on a short week. Even with RG3 bouncing back, can I trust the Pack to win this?

I'm tempted to take the Bengals at home over Pittsburgh who looked very vulnerable the way Tennessee destroyed them. But those are the Steelers and those are the Bengals. A risky play.

Oakland looked surprisingly stable against Indy in week one and return home to face the Quagmires. Taking the Raiders means choosing a team you wouldn't expect to need later in the season. Another risky play.

Could the Super Bowl champs fall to 0-2 against the Browns at home? Not likely, but their wallets looked fat and happy in the second half on Thursday night.

Then there's Houston at home against the Titties. Even with a short week, the Texans ought to pull it out but do I really want to test the jinx?

After careful consideration, I'm going with...

Green Bay. They won't have many other opportunities on their early schedule where I would regret choosing them this week.

I've burned myself in the past trying to be cute. This time I'll just go with the big favorite. I can always regret burning the good choices later.

Week 1: IND
Week 2: GB
Week 3: SEA

Even if this is a trap game and even if Seattle comes out flat, I don't see any way the Quagmires are going to be able to bring it in Seattle's house. Lock city, baby!

I'd like to get fancy here and not shoot the SEA bullet so early in the season and against such an awful team, but being fancy usually gets me eliminated early in this game. So...

Week 1: IND
Week 2: HOU
Week 3: SEA

After Week 2, is there really a trap game? I thought I had a sure thing picking New England. Those of us that picked Houston did, too. We all got by, but only by the skin of our teeth!
