Campana’s sleeper: Chicago Bears (Campana is 9-5 on the year)

You have got to love what the Bears showed against the Falcons last week. They were just a play or two away from a huge upset. The versatility in the backfield is what I believe can set this game apart, as the Tampa Bay backfield looks a bit shaky. 

Devine’s sleeper: Green Bay Packers (Devine is 10-4 on the year)

I always have confidence in Aaron Rodgers and always feel like he can outplay any quarterback. I respect the guy. The Falcons are opening their new stadium but the Chick-Fil-A there is closed on Sundays anyways so that’s a bad omen. Pack wins.

Leady’s sleeper: Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Leady is 10-4 on the year)

The Bucs look very solid on both sides of the ball this year. Winston has always been a team leader since the time he as joined the NFL. Winston will lead the Bucs offense in a tight match against the bears always impressive defense. Bucs come out on top in a very close game.

Decker’s sleeper: Chicago Bears (Decker is 7-7 on the year) 

After seeing how all the teams played overall in Week 1, a lot of them were flat. Tampa Bay not playing in a game that counts yet could hurt them. If Mike Glennon and the Bears offense can move down the field, they have a shot at winning today after almost upsetting Atlanta last week.

Drame’s sleeper: New Orleans Saints (Drame is 9-5 on the year)

Both defenses appear to be trending downward in the early parts of the season, but the Saints are always a good bet to score points. The Patriots are dealing with key injuries on both sides of the ball with Hightower and Amendola. The Saints are at home for this matchup so look for the Saints to send the defending champs to 0-2.

Kass’ sleeper: Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Kass is 7-7 on the year)

My sleeper this week is Tampa Bay. The Bucs play at home against Chicago, and are better rested than the Bears thanks to Hurricane Irma. Should lead to a close win, but a win nonetheless.

Layton’s sleeper: Denver Broncos (Layton is 8-6 on the year)

My sleeper pick is the Broncos. They have the defense to stop Zeke and will take advantage of the Cowboys depleted secondary.
