Alright, Week 1 of the NFL season is upon us. So, without delay ... here we go with my picks:
Redskins-Giants: Both teams have injury issues. The last time these two met, Washington cruised to a win. Since then, Eli Manning has surged. I just think this is too much for Washington right now. GIANTS WIN.
Bengals-Ravens: Both teams suck. At least the Bengals are starting an Pro Bowler with a broken beak. Ravens are starting the new fish. BENGALS WIN.
Jets-Dolphins. I think this will be a darn good game. I know the Jets made some nice offseason moves, but they won just three more games than the NFL-worst Dolphins. Still, Favre will find a way to pull this out. JETS WIN
Chiefs-Patriots. Are you kidding me? PATRIOTS WIN
Texans-Steelers. Houston is everyone's trendy darkhorse. Yeah, I look for teams without a starting running back and a QB tandem of Matt Schaub and Sage Rosenfelds as my buzz-worthy pick. STEELERS WIN.
Jaguars-Titans. Interesting game. The only thing is that David Garrard has more toys than Vince Young. The boy with the most toys wins. JAGS WIN
Lions-Falcons. Why do we care? LIONS WIN
Seahawks-Bills. This is a game that makes us care about the Bills again. Well, no. But Seattle just has too much going against it right now. BILLS WIN
Buccaneers-Saints. Tampa should upset N'Awlins in this one. I mean, the Saints have been in Indy practicing and not knowing what is going on with Hurricane Gustav. I just won't bet against them right now. SAINTS WIN.
Rams-Eagles. The Eagles are focused ... while the Rams are just, well, not. EAGLES WIN
Cowboys-Browns. I'm not on the Cleveland bandwagon. How could anyone? COWBOYS WIN
Panthers-Chargers. No Steve Smith for Kakalaka. No win. CHARGERS WIN
Cardinals-Niners. This game is usually good in a morbid way. Who would've thunk we'd be seeing Kurt Warner vs JT O'Sullivan? CARDINALS WIN
Bears-Colts. So what if the Colts will be rusty? COLTS WIN
Vikings-Packers. I may be one of the few people rooting for Aaron Rodgers to do well. With all that Brett Favre mess going on, he really showed a lot by trying his best to stay out of it. I want Green Bay to shine on Monday night. PACKERS WIN
Broncos-Raiders. Denver is my sleeper pick. Oakland is still Oakland. BRONCOS WIN
