Week 1 of the 2020 NFL season brought fans plenty of surprises. Underdogs like the Arizona Cardinals and Washington Football Team came out on top, and those two likely spoiled a few survivor pools.

That wouldn't have happened if you followed our advice, though, as our Week 1 survivor pool picks went 3-0. With that in mind, here are our picks for Week 2.

3. Buffalo Bills at Miami Dolphins, Sunday 1 pm

Yes, it was against the New York Jets, but Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills' offense looked different on Sunday. In fact, it was arguably the most dominant performance of his career. He threw for a career-high 312 yards, adding another 57 and a TD on 14 carries on the ground. That dual-threat ability should come in handy against a Miami Dolphins team that just let Cam Newton run for 75 yards and 2 scores. Buffalo shouldn't have much trouble here.

2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Carolina Panthers, Sunday 1pm

The Tom Brady era in Tampa Bay didn't get off to the start they were hoping for, but he wasn't nearly as bad as fans are making him out to be. Plus, the Buccaneers are the biggest favorites of the week (9.5 points on FanDuel Sportsbook). Carolina just surrendered 34 points to the Las Vegas Raiders, so expect this Tampa Bay offense to do some damage come Sunday.

1. Dallas Cowboys vs Atlanta Falcons, Sunday 1pm

The Dallas Cowboys are going to decimate the Atlanta Falcons' secondary. Atlanta just let Russell Wilson complete 31-of-35 attempts for 322 yards and four TDs. They just don't have the depth to cover Michael Gallup, Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb, so expect a big game from Dak Prescott. Plus, Dallas' defense held a really talented Los Angeles Rams' offense to 20 points. The Cowboys could blow this one open early.
