Week 2 NFL Picks brings NFL the Handshake Part II as Jim Schwartz matches wits with his new coaching nemesis, Jim Harbaugh. As everyone knows the two hard nosed competitors nearly came to blows after last year’s meeting at Ford Field. Schwartz felt Harbaugh was overly aggressive with his post-game handshake and, per usual, Schwartz failed to keep his cool.

Obviously what takes place on the field between the Lions and Niners is of greater import here, though. If last week’s games provided any indication, Detroit could be in trouble. The Lions struggled mightily at home against a Rams team that won just two games in 2011. To their credit the Lions prevailed, but they needed a last second touchdown pass from Matthew Stafford to Kevin Smith to earn their 27-23 victory.
San Francisco was far more impressive, going on the road to Green Bay where it whipped the Packers 30-22. The Niners held Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay’s potent offense to 324 totals yards. Alex Smith was efficient, as usual, completing 20-of-26 passes for 211 yards and two scores while running back Frank Gore tallied 112 yards and one touchdown on 16 carries.
There is no question the Lions have an explosive, quick strike offense, but San Francisco has proven under Harbaugh that it can handle such threats. The Niners have also been against the spread gold since the former Stanford front man took over last year, going 7-1 both straight up and against the spread as a home favorite.
