Pro Canes Preview: NFL Week 2

It’s Sunday, and you know what that means... Pro Canes Preview time.

NFL: Chicago Bears at Houston Texans Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

I hope you all enjoyed Miami’s 45-10 thrashing of App State as much as I did. Let’s celebrate the victory by watching some of our favorite former Canes hit the field this Sunday.

NFL Schedule Week 2

Saints @ Giants, 1:00 p.m. EST: Keep an eye on Giants left tackle, Ereck Flowers, as he matches up with Paul Kruger, the Saints DE.

Titans @ Lions, 1:00 p.m. EST: Veteran, Andre Johnson, will look to help mentor the young Tennessee receivers. Johnson didn’t do too bad in his first game with his new team. He caught 3 of 7 passes in his debut. The Lions recently picked up former Cane, Thurston Armbrister.

Chiefs @ Texans, 1:00 p.m. EST: Former Cane, Allen Bailey, has been a bit of a headache for Houston in the past. I don’t think the 27-year-old defensive end will look to stop his streak of terror against Houston today. Texans RB, Lamar Miller, carried the ball 28 times in Week 1. Will he get 20-plus touches today? Probably.

Ravens @ Browns, 1:00 p.m. EST: It’s worth watching this game if you wanna watch Devin Hester in the return game for Baltimore. You never know what he’ll do. Browns RB, Duke Johnson, only touched the ball three times in Week 1.

49ers @ Panthers, 1:00 p.m. EST: If you are a big Ray-Ray Armstrong fan, this game may be worth watching. The Niners have been between him and Gerald Hodges when it comes to the starting middle linebacker spot. The Panthers will look to keep tight end, Greg Olsen, involved. Last week, he had seven catches.

Bengals @ Steelers, 1:00 p.m. EST: Look for rookie corner, Artie Burns, to keep developing. He’s been trying his best to cover Antonio Brown in practice.

Buccaneers @ Cardinals, 4:05 p.m. EST: In his Week 1 showdown against New England, D-End, Calais Campbell, had three total tackles. He’ll try wreak havoc against the Bucs. You can also watch former FSU kicker, Roberto Aguayo, possibly botch an easy kick like he did in the pre-season. This guy was drafted in the second round.

Seahawks @ Rams, 4:05 p.m. EST: Jimmy Graham played 17 snaps in the season opener for the Seahawks. Graham (rupture patellar tendon) had one catch for 11 yards. Peter Carroll said his tight end is ready to go this week, and will see more playing time.

Falcons @ Raiders, 4:25 p.m. EST: You can keep your eye on Falcons punter, Matt Bosher, or Raiders tight end, Clive Walford, and guard, Jon Feliciano.

Jaguars @ Chargers, 4:25 p.m. EST: Week 1, Jags’ receiver, Allen Hurns, caught four passes for 75 yards. He’ll look to improve against San Diego in Week 2. Chargers’ receiver, Travis Benjamin, caught seven passes in week one. Linebacker, Denzel Perryman, had four tackles in Week 1 for San Diego. As of Friday, Orlando Franklin was labeled “iffy” by San Diego media. The left guard has a neck injury.

Colts @ Broncos, 4:25 p.m. EST: Veteran RB, Frank Gore, touched the ball 14 times, for 59 yards in his first game. The Colts will face a stout Denver defense. Former Canes receiver, Phillip Dorsett, played very well in Week 1 against Detroit. He had four catches for 94 yards.

Packers @ Vikings, 8:30 p.m. EST: Packers’ corner, Sam Shields, was ruled out of this game (concussion). That should benefit the Vikings, considering that they have to start Sam Bradford at QB.

Eagles @ Bears, 8:30 p.m. EST (Monday Night Football): Bears’ corner, Deon Bush, has been battling a hamstring injury.

... And there you have it. Enjoy your Sunday, and go Canes!
