AFC West Sneak Peak:

Houston Texans (2-0) at Denver Broncos (1-1)
Kickoff:
3:25pm
Line: Pick Em
Preview: The Broncos look to bounce back in a short week after falling 27-20 to Atlanta on Monday night. There was much talk about Peyton Manning's lack of arm strength – now how will he respond with the quick turn around. Houston is the best team in the AFC.

Atlanta Falcons (2-0) at San Diego Chargers (2-0)
Kickoff:
3:05pm
Line: San Diego -3
Preview: The Atlanta Falcons look to go 2-0 versus the AFC West while San Diego is near the bottom of the NFL in rushing (90-yards per game) without a healthy Ryan Matthews but an improved defense leads the NFL in rushing yards against allowing just 41.5 yards per game including holding Tennessee's Chris Johnson to a mere 17-yards last week.

Pittsburgh Steelers (0-2) at Oakland Raiders (0-2)
Kickoff:
3:25pm
Line: Pittsburgh -5
Preview: The Raiders offense is in disarray with Darren McFadden catching passes for more yards than he's rushing for. Oakland's defense isn't in much better shape giving up a whopping 355-yards per contest.
