WEEK ONE NFL PICKS

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 9

COLTS AT BEARS

Andrew Luck might be the future but the game one prediction is pain at the hands of the Monsters of the Midway. Bears 28-10

 

FALCONS AT CHIEFS

Arrowhead Stadium is one of the toughest places to play in the NFL. Former Longhorn Jamaal Charles is back and ready to run. Chiefs 21-14

EAGLES AT BROWNS

The season opener will feature the Browns holding a reluctant moment of silence for former owner Art Modell and their lost football season. Eagles 34-17

REDSKINS AT SAINTS

After the bounty suspensions and reversals, I pity any team playing in Superdome on Sunday. Not a good place for RGIII to open his career. Saints 35-10

RAMS AT LIONS

The Rams have lost more games the last five years than any team in NFL history. They got a new coach. But it’s the same old Rams. Lions 30-13

PATRIOTS AT TITANS

Tom Brady vs. Jake Locker. Looks like a mismatch. Smells like a mismatch and Sounds like a mismatch. Well, it is what it is. Patriots 27-14

JAGUARS AT VIKINGS

The Vikings are not the same team without Adrian Peterson. He will be limited in the game if he plays at all. Jaguars 17-16

BILLS AT JETS

The circus that is the Jets get serious in opener with a solid win against the Bills who have a revamped defense but the same woes on offense Jets 14-10

DOLPHINS AT TEXANS

And you thought Hardknocks was just a television series. It is real life for the Dolphins in the biggest season opening mismatch in the league. Texans 35-7

 

SEAHAWKS AT CARDINALS

The Cardinals may have questions at quarterback but their defense is solid and they are playing a Seattle team with a rookie QB without Marshawn Lynch. Cardinals 20-17

 

49ERS AT PACKERS

The 49ers find out early that it’s a lot different when success is expected rather than being a surprise team of a year ago.  Packers 24-20

 

PANTHERS AT BUCCANEERS

There will be no sophomore letdown for Cam Newton. He is the real deal. And he will prove it against a revamped but still longing Tampa team. Panthers 26-21

STEELERS AT BRONCOS

Tebow is gone. But they now have a true football god in Denver in Peyton Manning. The result is another mile high loss for the Steelers. Broncos 23-17

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 10

 

BENGALS AT RAVENS

The Ravens are my pick represent the AFC in the Super Bowl and they get off to a strong start with a beat down of the Bengals. Ravens 27-17

 

CHARGERS AT RAIDERS

The Ryan Matthews injury is huge for the Chargers who become one dimensional if he doesn’t play. Look for Darren McFadden to have a huge opener. Raiders 24-21
