Two of the most surprising teams in the league play each other on Sunday for the right to start 2-0 as Washington visits the Arizona Cardinals at 4:05 p.m. ET. Washington rallied from a 17-point deficit to beat the Eagles 27-17 last weekend, while the Cardinals overcame two fourth-quarter deficits to upend the defending NFC champion 49ers, 24-20. Washington's victory puts them alone atop the NFC East, but Arizona is a seven-point favorite in the latest Week 2 NFL odds from William Hill.
Can Dwayne Haskins and Washington keep up the momentum and improve to 2-0, or will Kyler Murray and Arizona stay undefeated atop the NFC West? And which team will cover one of the largest NFL spreads this week?

Top NFL predictions for Week 2
One of the top Week 2 NFL predictions the model recommends: the Ravens (-7) cover against the Texans. Baltimore looked dominant last week against the Browns, easily covering a touchdown spread after winning by 32 points.
This week, the model is calling for more of the same from Lamar Jackson and company. It's calling for three total scores from the Ravens' quarterback in a decisive 30-18 victory. Baltimore runs for almost 200 yards, while Texans quarterback Lamar Jackson has nearly the same chance of throwing an interception as a touchdown. Baltimore covers in nearly 60 percent of simulations.
Another one of the top Week 2 NFL picks from the model: The Chiefs (-8.5) cover as road favorites against the Chargers. The Chiefs looked strong against the Texans in Week 1, winning 34-20. Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes threw for 211 yards and three touchdowns, while rookie Clyde Edwards-Helaire ran through the rain for 138 yards and another score.
While the Chargers weren't as dominant in Week 1, the result was the same. Los Angeles engineered a fourth-quarter rally to upend Cincinnati 16-13, with Tyrod Taylor throwing for 208 yards and Austin Ekeler adding 84 rushing yards.
The Chiefs are riding a six-game winning streak against the spread versus teams with winning records and are 11-1 against the number in their last 12 September games. SportsLine's model says Mahomes throws for over 280 yards and two touchdowns and that Edwards-Helaire is the game's leading rusher, with the Chiefs covering in almost 60 percent of simulations. The over (47.5) also clears well over 50 percent of the time.
