Sunday Night: San Francisco 49ers @ Seattle Seahawks
Monday Night: Pittsburgh Steelers @ Cincinnati Bengals
Bye Week: None until week 4

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 2:

Lightning (-1/2) vs Misfits, Inc.
Our top ranked team in the draft needed some help to eek out a victory last week. Meanwhile, FitzCorp was busy putting up the second highest point total in the league. The difference will be the Bengals D against the Steelers on MNF. Who are you rooting for, Coach ThadTotti?

Dumbbums (-1) vs. Predacons
The 'Bums had a decent week to start the season. They won't break any other records this week, but they're still poised to score a bunch of points. The Preds on the other hand were pretty average. Expect the Steelers D to give Coach Coaldog the win, if things aren't already decided before MNF.

Stiletto Stompers (-1/2) vs. The Comfy Chair
Take your pick here. If both of these managers start the right personnel this one could go either way. It will probably come down to Frank Gore's performance on Sunday night, but it's going to be close. You'll have to stay up the whole time.

THE Haw (-1/2) vs. Marauders
After last week's loss, Yahoo's season projection for the Marauders has been lowered from 2-11 to 1-11-1. What? I guarantee they will win more than one game this year. Not this week, however. But sometime.

Spiked Vipers (-1) vs. Baltimorons
The 'Morons scored the lowest total in the league last week - they totaled only 5 points more than Peyton Manning himself. They probably won't get a reprieve from 12th place when they face Cam Newton and the Vipers.

And the game of the week...

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Renegades
If you look at these teams on paper, you have to be surprised that neither earned a win in week 1. One of them will get one here but it won't be easy. It's going to be a close one and it will all be finished before the work week starts.

Good luck this week.
