NFL Week 1: Mercy Please
Titans at Steelers
A better game than perhaps some people think. Jeff Fisher will have his team ready but the Steelers are not losing at home, first game of the season, in title protection mode.
Vikings at Browns
The Vikes flex their muscles (more Peterson, less Farve) and pound the Browns.
Broncos at Bengals
Who in the world wants to watch this game? The Bengals edge the Broncos in a snoozer.
Dolphins at Falcons
It's almost automatic to pick the Falcons because of last year but I'm going with the fish. Miami's defense will be the difference.
Jaguars at Colts
This is historically a nasty division and will be no different with the extra intensity of opening week. Injuries will ensue but I'm giving Peyton the benefit of the doubt.
Lions at Saints
What a horrible way to start the season for the kitty cats. The Saints will jump all over the Lions early forcing Stafford to play catch up. The rookie throws at least two picks.
Cowboys at Buccaneers
The Bucs will punch the Boys in the mouth early. The Cowboys regain composure and win big.
Eagles at Panthers (SHOCKER ALERT)
A lot of people are really up on the Eagles to get to the Super Bowl this year which is very reasonable considering the talent. However the Eagles and Mcnabb can sometimes surprise you in good and bad ways depending on your take. I'm taking the Panthers in a nail nibbler.
Chiefs at Ravens
God help the Chiefs. Ravens lay the wood in a blood bath
Jets at Texans
Mario Williams reminds rookie Mark Sanchez that the regular season is a little different than preseason. I think it will be close but the Texans pull it out.
Redskins at Giants
Everyone bases their picks on last year's results. (We are all guilty including me) Though I think the Giants are the better team I have a feeling the Redskin's defense will come to play. The Redskins win in a NFC East slugfest.
49ers at Cardinals (SHOCKER ALERT)
I have no real good reasons to do this but I have a sneaky suspicion that Mike Singletary will have his young defense fired up to shut down the returning NFC champs. Niners win in the upset of the week.
Rams at Seahawks
Hasselback is healthy and ready to roll. The Seahawks pound the lowly Rams into pieces.
Bears at Packers
Lambeau field, home opener, Sunday night football...The Packers! That's easy. Only a crazy person would take the Bears. I'm a little crazy and I'm taking the Bears as Cutler guns down the Pack.
Bills at Patriots
Unless Brady gets his knee injured again the Bills are toast, T.O. or not.
Chargers at Raiders
I know about the whole AFL anniversary thing but this is a horrible reason to stay up and watch Monday Night Football. Chargers embarrass the Raiders if they can possibly be embarrassed any further.
