This is our weekly round-up of Stampede Blue editors and writers and their picks for the coming week in the NFL.

In the picks we all agreed on for Week Two in the NFL, Stampede Blue's brainiacs went 6-2. Had New England not choked away that game at home against the Cardinals, we'd be 7-1 and drinking martinis on the roof deck (Grecco's buying).

On the picks we disagreed on...

Matt: 10-6

Nick: 8-8

Brad: 12-4

Awwwwwwwwww yeah, fellas! That'll teach you to believe that the Chiefs (HA!) could walk into Buffalo and beat the Bills, something they haven't done since 1986.

FYI: I'm talking smack now because I have a feeling that Grecco will kick both our butts going forward. Damn you math!

Overall records so far (not including last night's Panthers v. Giants game, which had us all going G-Men):

Nick: 16-16

Brad: 21-11

Matt: 20-12

My AWESOME!!! Week Two picks 'splosion puts me in the lead. Can I stay ahead? Will Nick finally get over .500? Will Matt drink too much beer this weekend watching Notre Dame? Is a bear Catholic? Does the Pope take a dump in the woods?

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Dallas Cowboys (Cowboys)

Detroit Lions at Tennessee Titans (Lions)

New York Jets at Miami Dolphins (Dolphins)

Kansas City Chiefs at New Orleans Saints (Saints)

Philadelphia Eagles at Arizona Cardinals (Eagles)

Pittsburgh Steelers at Oakland Raiders (Steelers)

Side note: Not as much disagreement this week. Hmmmmm...

Picks We Disagree On:

Buffalo Bills at Cleveland Browns

The Bills bounced back last week by blowing out the Chiefs at home. The Chiefs are terrible, and I still have no faith in Ryan Fitzpatrick. This is a very winnable game for Cleveland. Trent Richardson looks healthy, and Brandon Weeden did a nice job of not playing like an embarrassment (as he did in Week One). If Weeden and Richardson play as well against Buffalo as they did v. the Bengals, the Browns will record their first victory of 2012.

My Pick: Browns

Nick's Pick: Bills (boo!)

Matt's Pick: Browns

Houston Texans at Denver Broncos

Peyton Manning played terrible on Monday night against the Falcons. He clearly has arm issues throwing the ball deep up the seam. He can deny it all he wants. The tape doesn't lie. The Houston Texans will exploit this, and they will take away other routes, forcing Manning to make that throw. If he doesn't, the Broncos will lose again. I think Manning and the offense will rebound. The key with Peyton is limiting turnovers. His running game is awesome, and his defense can keep Denver in games. If Manning doesn't throw three picks Monday, I think the Broncos beat the Falcons. If he limits turnovers here, Denver wins.

My Pick: Broncos

Nick's Pick: Texans (boo!)

Matt's Pick: Texans (boo!)

Other Picks We Are Squabbling Over

Cincinnati Bengals at Washington Redskins

My Pick: Bengals

Nick's Pick: Redskins (boo!)

Matt's Pick: Redskins (boo!)

Atlanta Falcons at San Diego Chargers

My Pick: Chargers

Nick's Pick: Falcons (boo!)

Matt's Pick: Falcons (boo!)
