Schwartz’s Trench Report: Week 2 NFL Bets Based on Offensive Line Play

  • Former NFL lineman Geoff Schwartz offers his two best Week 2 bets based on the battles up front.
  • It was clear how much the Cowboys missed Travis Frederick in their season opener.
  • So what does that mean for their matchup with the Giants? That's one of two picks for this week's slate.

The Trench Report started the season on fire, going 2-0 in Week 1. So let’s continue the fun!

Below are a pair of Week 2 picks based on the battles up front. We’ll start with the Philadelphia Eagles-Tampa Bay Buccaneers matchup in the Sunday early games, then look at Sunday night’s NFC East showdown between the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys.

Philadelphia Eagles at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

  • Spread: Eagles -3
  • Over/Under: 44
  • Time: 1 p.m. ET
  • TV channel: FOX

The Eagles are above and beyond better than the Buccaneers on both lines.

While the Bucs scored a gazllion points last weekend in New Orleans, they didn’t rush the ball terribly well (they ranked 25th by Football Outsiders for the week). And when they struggle to rush the ball again this week, it will force Ryan Fitzpatrick to throw.
