What a Week 1 it was in the NFL.

Green Bay Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers looked to be done for the season in the first half of Sunday night’s game against the Chicago Bears, only to return in the second half and lead the Pack back from a 20-0 deficit.

What’s in store for Week 2, which includes an AFC Championship rematch between the New England Patriots and the Jacksonville Jaguars?

Caddie Nick Hughey offers up his picks for how he thinks Week 2 will unfold…

Minnesota at Green Bay
Point Spread: Minnesota -1

Pick: Minnesota
Why?: I don’t think Aaron Rodgers is going to play and they needed him to barely get by the Bears last week.

Kansas City at Pittsburgh
Point Spread: Pittsburgh -5.5

Pick: Kansas City
Why?: They looked great last week against the Chargers. We don’t know if Big Ben is going to play, but if he doesn’t KC wins outright.

New England at Jacksonville
Point Spread: New England -2

Pick: New England
Why?: I don’t think Blake Bortles can get it done for Jacksonville in this AFC Championship rematch. It would take an off game for Brady and company to lose here.

Oakland at Denver
Point Spread: Denver -4.5

Pick: Denver
Why?: Oakland looked rough on Monday night. Combine that with a short week and it doesn’t bode well for Gruden and the Raiders.

NY Giants at Dallas
Point Spread: Dallas -3

Pick: NY
Why?: Dallas looked awful on Sunday with hardly no weapons. The Giants lost to a good Jacksonville defense. I think this is a coin flip, but I’m rolling with the points.
