Week One Picks

It’s a whole new football season full of possibilities. Week One is always brings some interesting – and often unexpected – results. Strong teams from the previous year can fall, the Lions might start strong and locker room dynamics during the off-season can influence how teams start out of the gate. All of this conspires to make prognosticating winners more difficult since preseason doesn’t really tell us much about how teams are going to gel.

All that being said, here are my Week One picks.

Ravens vs Broncos: Last time these 2 teams met up, the Ravens came out triumphant, which led to their Super Bowl appearance. Peyton Manning is unwilling to rehash last year’s play-off loss. I’ll help him: hey, Peyton. You lost! Moving on… this one is being played in Mile High Stadium. I think Manning is going to fight like hell to bring retribution to the Raven’s for last year’s play-off loss. Broncos, 24-20.

Patriots vs Bills: Tom Brady takes on Ryan Fitzpatrick. Bills enter this one the underdog… and likely walk out of this one with a loss under their belts. Patriots, 28-17.

Seahawks vs Panthers: Seattle will have undercover cops at the game. One person they won’t find is Percy Harvin. Pete Carroll also has to face the possibility that Marshawn Lynch won’t be able to play. He’s currently questionable. Meanwhile, the Panthers have listed RB Jonathan Stewart as questionable as they await doctor approval on his surgically repaired ankle. Prevailing wisdom says that the one team who made the play-offs last year wins this game. Despite that, I think the Panthers might pull this one out. Panthers, 21-17.

Bengals vs Bears: He may be retired, but Brian Urlacher is letting loose some secrets of the Bears’ game planning – which includes faking injuries. For week one, I think home field has the advantage here. Bears, 24-21.

Dolphins vs Browns:  Dolphins, 20-17

Vikings vs Lions:  Vikings 24-21

Raiders vs Colts:  Colts, 28-24

Chiefs vs Jaguars:  Chiefs, 24-17

Falcons vs Saints: Saints, 27-14

Buccaneers vs Jets: Bucs, 23-19

Titans vs Steelers: Steelers, 28-24

Packers vs 49ers:  49ers, 27-20

Cardinals vs Rams: Rams, 20-19

Giants vs Cowboys: Giants, 21-17

Eagles vs Redskins:  Redskins, 28-24

Texans vs Chargers:  Texans, 23-14

Week Three Picks Recap

Well, coming into Week 3, I was at 18-14 in my picks. Let’s see what happened after Week 3 was in the hopper.

Giants vs Panthers: Panthers by 7
Wrong. The Panthers could only score 7 points.

Rams vs Bears: Bears by 4
Right. The Bears looked better – but beatable!

Bills vs Browns: Bills by 7
Right. But Spiller took a spill.

Buccaneers vs Cowboys: Cowboys by 3
Right. Cowboys eke out a win despite themselves.

Jaguars vs Colts: Jaguars by 3
Right. Indeed, the Jaguars win.

Jets vs Dolphins: Jets by 7
Right. But by 3 in OT.

49ers vs Vikings: 49ers by 10
Wrong. And, I must say, I’m happy to be wrong!

Chiefs vs Saints: Saints by 3
Wrong. Saints 0-3. I like it.

Lions vs Titans: Lions by 7
Wrong. Stafford went down with an injury, Shaun Hill got them in position to make a comeback… but, alas, it was not to be.

Bengals vs Redskins: Redskins by 7
Wrong. Dalton out-performed RGIII. Fascinating.

Eagles vs Cardinals: Cardinals by 3
Right. Although the score was much more in favor of the Cardinals. What the heck is going on in AZ?

Falcons vs Chargers: Falcons by 7
Right. Falcons have momentum.

Texans vs Broncos: Broncos by 3
Wrong. Broncos started really slow and could never catch up.

Steelers vs Raiders: Steelers by 7
Wrong. Last second FG sealed the deal for the Raiders after DHB went down in a scary collision.

Patriots vs Ravens: Patriots by 7
Wrong. Patriots have lost their mojo. Or the Ravens found theirs.

Packers vs Seahawks: Packers by 7
Wrong. Hilarious!

So, with my 7-9 performance this week, my new total is 25-23.  I’m going to need to step up my pick performance if I’m going to do as well as I did last year.
