The Associated Press isn't exactly known for their innovation -- they just started doing power rankings this year! -- but they do pick the games each week. Barry Wilner of the AP has submitted his Week 1 picks and we have a bit of a surprise.
For the KC Chiefs and Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, Wilner has the good guys winning in an upset.
Wilner takes Chiefs, 17-14, in his "UPSET SPECIAL" of the week.
KC is a 2.5-point 'dog against the Falcons.
The Houston Texans over the Miami Dolphins in that double digit point spread game is the "BEST BET" of the week while the Falcons-Chiefs game is the only "UPSET SPECIAL" the AP has picked this week.
(They like capital letters at the AP.)
Here are some other comments from in the AP's power rankings.
