NFL picks Week 1: Predictions on all the games

Let’s talk about some Week 1 NFL picks. Obviously, I picked the Chiefs to beat the Patriots as everyone expected. I wouldn’t even click on this link to my picks over at SB Nation because they probably made a mistake and said I picked the Patriots, which is obviously wrong. I always believed the Chiefs could beat Brady and the champs at home. Ahem...

If you’re doing a survivor pool, I like the Bills over the Jets or the Steelers over the Browns. Divisional games can always be weird though. I didn’t pick the Bears but I would love to see an upset over Atlanta and a city like Chicago go crazy for their football team again. I am also picking the Titans to beat the Raiders, who are very overhyped. Elsewhere in the AFC West, the Broncos host the Chargers on Monday night.

Chiefs vs. Patriots: Patriots


Jets vs. Bills: Bills

Picking against the Jets is a good survivor league strategy this year.

Falcons vs. Bears: Falcons

Tempted to pick Chicago due to the Super Bowl hangover.

Ravens vs. Bengals: Bengals

Vontaze Burfict’s suspension makes this game safer for everyone.

Steelers vs. Browns: Steelers

Division rival on the road was enough for me to avoid this as a survivor league pick but Pittsburgh should win. It would be a bigger upset than the Chiefs win if they didn’t.

Cardinals vs. Lions: Lions

Lions are going to be really good this year. The Cardinals are a year too old.

Jaguars vs. Texans: Texans

Oh to see Blake Bortles light up the Texans.

Raiders vs. Titans: Titans

A bunch of us are picking the Titans. The Raiders are overhyped.

Eagles vs. Redskins: Redskins

I’m not in love with this pick.

Colts vs. Rams: Rams

Someone should be fired over their quarterback situation. Yikes.

Seahawks vs. Packers: Seahawks

Best game of the week (besides, well, you know).

Panthers vs. 49ers: 49ers

The upset. I think the 49ers are going to be decent this year.

Giants vs Cowboys: Cowboys

Zeke is playing.

Saints vs. Vikings: Saints

Saints will put up like seven touchdowns to the Vikings six.

Chargers vs. Broncos: Broncos

I want to pick the Chargers here. I think they’re better. But not in Denver on opening week.
