BRONCOS (2-0) at BENGALS (1-1), 1 p.m.

Outlook: There were a handful of other solid Game of the Week candidates but I’ll take this AFC duel pitting Cincy’s high-motor offense vs. Denver’s super-stout defense. The Broncos lead the series 20-9. Andy Dalton has 16 TD passes and a 106.8 passer rating in his past nine home games. Upset watch, but the Broncos will miss injured LB DeMarcus Ware.

Television: CBS

Prediction: Bengals, 23-20

CARDINALS (1-1) at BILLS (0-2), 1 p.m.

Outlook: This admittedly is a big dice roll, because a blowout win by the Cards would probably be less surprising than a victory by the desperate Bills. But sometimes you have to go with the gut, right? Tyrod Taylor has a 110.3 rating in his past five home games, and I think Rex Ryan’s defense will rise up and limit Carson Palmer’s potent attack.

Prediction: Bills, 27-23

BROWNS (0-2) at DOLPHINS (0-2), 1 p.m.

Outlook: Make this game the Dog of the Week in dishonor of the Browns being so awful that even a winless Miami is a near double-digit favorite. Shouldn’t the Browns have been relegated to the Canadian league by now? This is the opener for Miami’s newly refurbished and renamed stadium. The Browns will help the Dolphins christen it right.

Prediction: Dolphins, 27-10

RAIDERS (1-1) at TITANS (1-1), 1 p.m.

Outlook: The Titans are a sorrowful 2-15 in their past 17 home games in seeking their first back-to-back wins since 2013. Their offense hasn’t been very good but could find its remedy in a Raiders defense that has allowed more than 1,000 opponent yards in its first two games. In this case, though, I’ll saddle up the better team. Upset.

Prediction: Raiders, 27-20

RAVENS (2-0) at JAGUARS (0-2), 1 p.m.

Outlook: Blake Bortles’ 43 completions of 25-plus yards since the start of last season lead the league. The Jaguars are on the rise but have a ways to go, as seen vs. San Diego last week. The Jags are a tempting home underdog but the Ravens know how to win.

Prediction: Ravens, 23-21

LIONS (1-1) at PACKERS (1-1), 1 p.m.

Outlook: This is no longer the lopsided matchup that once saw the Lions lose 24 straight in Green Bay. Nor is this the Aaron Rodgers we’re used to. His 2015 lull has carried over; he has 14 consecutive games without a 100 passer rating. I predict that streak ends, but I like the Lions to keep it close.

Prediction: Packers, 28-24

VIKINGS (2-0) at PANTHERS (1-1), 1 p.m.

Outlook: Carolina, even missing Jonathan Stewart, seems to have its offense on track and has won 14 consecutive home games. The Vikings have lost Teddy Bridgewater and now Adrian Peterson (again) but still bring enough defense to keep this one close.

Prediction: Panthers, 23-20

WASHINGTON (0-2) at GIANTS (2-0), 1 p.m.

Outlook: Worth the price of admission: Washington cornerback Josh Norman vs. Giants receiver Odell Beckham. Be ready, Josh. Odell has 363 catch-yards and five TDs in three career games vs. injury-wracked Washington.

Television: FOX

Prediction: Giants, 30-27

RAMS (1-1) at BUCCANEERS (1-1), 4:05 p.m.

Outlook: I thought the Rams were awful. Then they beat Seattle last week. I thought the Bucs were not bad. Then they lost 40-7 to Arizona. Welcome to the UnpredictaBowl. Which L.A. defense will appear? Did the Rams remember to pack an offense for the trip? Which Jameis Winston shows up? Venue pick.

Prediction: Buccaneers, 19-17

49ERS (1-1) at SEAHAWKS (1-1), 4:05 p.m.

Outlook: Tough week for the Seahawks. Their offensive woes continued in a 9-3 loss, and the club was fined $400,000 by the NFL and made to forfeit a fifth-round draft pick over excessive offseason practices. Feel-good remedy: A visit from the Niners. The Seahawks need to solve their offensive line struggles but I see a breakout game by Russell Wilson.

Prediction: Seahawks, 24-9

JETS (1-1) at CHIEFS (1-1), 4:25 p.m.

Outlook: Kansas City has won seven straight games at Arrowhead but all streaks must end. The Chiefs’ rotation of young cornerbacks has really struggled and I see that translating to a big game by Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. Upset.

Television: CBS

Prediction: Jets, 23-20

CHARGERS (1-1) at COLTS (0-2), 4:25 p.m.

Outlook: Philip Rivers is hot, 5-1 against the Colts and facing a defense that has allowed 73 points in two losses. The Chargers could see the debut of Joey Bosa. Oh, and Andrew Luck has a sore throwing shoulder, though he says he’ll play. Yes, there are reasons to like San Diego but I resist.

Prediction: Colts, 37-31

STEELERS (2-0) at EAGLES (2-0), 4:25 p.m.

Outlook: This Keystone State duel had Game of Week cred as the only Sunday matchup of 2-0 teams. I also like Big Ben Roethlisberger matching arms with early rookie of the year frontrunner Carson Wentz. The Steelers’ defense poses the first real test for Wentz. Pitt defense wins.

Prediction: Steelers, 26-17

BEARS (0-2) at COWBOYS (1-1), 8:30 p.m.

Outlook: Chicago bombed in prime time last week but now gets another shot. This time it’s with Brian Hoyer in for the injured Jay Cutler, but I’m not sure that’s a huge dropoff. And isn’t Dak Prescott due a mistake or two? Upset, anyone? No.

Television: NBC

Prediction: Cowboys, 24-20


FALCONS (1-1) at SAINTS (0-2), 8:30 p.m.

Outlook: The game marks the 10th anniversary of the reopening of the Saints’ stadium after Hurricane Katrina, promising an emotional night. And an aerial show. Drew Brees has four straight 300s vs. Atlanta, while Matt Ryan has topped a 100 passer rating in four straight vs. New Orleans.

Television: ESPN

Prediction: Saints, 31-27
