NFL Picks – Week 1

Cowboys at Giants (Wednesday 8:30pm)
Defending champs are 8-0 on Opening Night.  Jason Witten is likely out for the Cowboys (spleen).
Winner: Giants

Patriots at Titans (Sunday 1pm)
Will the Patriots, who’ve won 8 straight openers, carry a chip from losing last season’s Super Bowl in the final seconds? Will RB Chris Johnson rebound? QB Jake Locker gets a quick test right out of the gate for the Titans.
Winner: Patriots

Bills at Jets (Sunday 1pm)
The Jets were awful offensively in the preseason, but the Bills weren’t much better.  DE Mario Williams
should make an immediate impact here.
Winner: Bills

Dolphins at Texans (Sunday 1pm)
If QB Matt Schaub were healthy last season, it very well could’ve been the Texans in the Super Bowl, not the Patriots.  Even without Mario Williams, the Texans have enough D to get past Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill.
Winner: Texans

Colts at Bears (Sunday 1pm)
Welcome to the Andrew Luck era! The stats will be good but the wins won’t be plentiful.
Winner: Bears

Falcons at Chiefs (Sunday 1pm)
Two teams that have their sights set on getting to that upper echelon of their respective conferences.
Winner: Chiefs

Eagles at Browns (Sunday 1pm)
The biggest question each and every week for the Eagles is can QB Michael Vick stay healthy.
Winner: Eagles

Rams at Lions (Sunday 1pm)
The Lions look loaded, but can they mature to let their talent show it? Welcome back Jeff Fisher.
Winner: Lions

Jaguars at Vikings (Sunday 1pm)
RB Maurice Jones-Drew reported after his training camp holdout, but should only be a 3rd down back.  As for RB Adrian Peterson, how much playing time will he get as he comes back from his torn acl?
Winner: Jaguars

49ers at Packers (Sunday 4:25pm)
Game of the day in what could’ve been the NFC Championship Game if not for Eli Manning and the Giants. Packers have something to prove.  Will Randy Moss do the same?
Winner: Packers

Seahawks at Cardinals (Sunday 4:25pm)
QB Russell Wilson gets the nod for the Seahawks.  Does it really matter for the Cards (Skelton or Kolb)?
Winner: Seahawks

Panthers at Buccaneers (Sunday 4:25pm)
A road test right off the bat for QB Cam Newton and the Panthers against a Bucs team that greatly disappointed and now has Greg Schiano at the helm as head coach.
Winner: Bucs

Steelers at Broncos (Sunday 8:20pm)
QB Peyton Manning’s first NFL start not in a Colts jersey.  He’s got weapons, but can he get them the ball?
Winner: Broncos

Bengals at Ravens (Monday 7pm)
If not for a Lee Evans dropped TD pass, we could be talking about the Super Bowl Champs, no?
Winner: Ravens

Chargers at Raiders (Monday 10:15pm)
Let the Phillip Rivers redepemption tour begin.
Winner: Chargers
