Picking Winners for Week 1 in the NFL
Buffalo at Los Angeles Rams Los Angeles Rams, but Buffalo won.
San Francisco at Chicago San Francisco. The 49ers want to show the world that Trey Lance can play well. Beating the Bears won't prove much, but it would be a nice start.
New Orleans at Atlanta New Orleans. The Saints go marching in... and through the Falcons.
Philadelphia at Detroit Philadelphia. Don't be surprised if the Lions win this one.
Jacksonville at Washington Jacksonville. The Jags are the underdog in this game. I don't think they should be.
Pittsburgh at Cincinnati Cincinnati. The Steelers beat the Bills in their first game last year. If they can do that, they can upset the Bengals. However, I'm not sure Mitch Trubisky can pull it off.
New England at Miami Miami. Maybe Tua is not a better QB than Mac Jones. Even so, Miami is better than the Patriots right now, especially in the sweltering heat of South Florida.
Baltimore at New York Jets Baltimore. Lamar Jackson starts his assault on the NFL.
Cleveland at Carolina Carolina. This is a revenge game for Baker Mayfield. I think he does just enough to edge out his old team.
Indianapolis at Houston Indianapolis. The Colts have lost a gazillion opening day games in a row. It has to end sometime, doesn't it?
New York Giants at Tennessee Tennessee. Daniel Jones against Ryan Tannehill. May the worse QB lose!
Green Bay at Minnesota Green Bay. I had the Vikings picked to win this game originally. You know what they say about going with your first instinct. I just can't do it with Aaron Rodgers on the other side while knowing of his dominant history against the NFC North.
Kansas City at Arizona Kansas City. If the Cardinals start this season on fire, like they did last year, they will probably win this game. I just can't see Kyler Murray beating Patrick Mahomes in the opener.
Las Vegas at Los Angeles Chargers Los Angeles Chargers. The Raiders knocked the Chargers out of the playoffs in the Chargers' last game last year. They will likely get revenge in this one.
Tampa Bay at Dallas Tampa Bay. The Cowboys are notorious for winning when most people think they will lose, but can they beat Tom Brady? They NEVER have... 0-6.
Denver at Seattle Denver. Russell Wilson makes his return to Seattle. The Seahawks are about to find out why they were boneheaded to have traded him away.
May God always be your number 1 draft pick!
