NFL Picks, Week 1: Rolling With The Chiefs

Getty Images

The NFL season is underway with the Dallas Cowboys beating the New York Giants. If I would've posted my Week 1 NFL picks before that game I would've picked the Cowboys winning 24-17 so I guess I'm 1-0 on the season? Yeah, we'll go with that.

I've got all my picks posted after the jump but there's one we really care about -- Atlanta Falcons vs. Kansas City Chiefs.

My official pick for the game: 23-20, Chiefs.

I'm ignoring some of the signs in this game, namely that the Chiefs defense is really beat up. But whatever. It's the home crowd, it's the season opener, Arrowhead will be rockin'. I gotta take the Chiefs.

Winner in bold. Pick explanations here.

Indianapolis Colts vs. Chicago Bears: 28-24

Philadelphia Eagles vs. Cleveland Browns: 27-7

Washington Redskins vs. New Orleans Saints: 31-20

St. Louis Rams vs. Detroit Lions: 35-28

New England Patriots vs. Tennessee Titans: 27-21

Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Minnesota Vikings: 17-14

Buffalo Bills vs. New York Jets: 14-10
