NFL PICKS WEEK ONE 2016

Well, finally Football is Back! It seemed to sneak up on me. One more season of picks with dinner on the line. The week one picks are: 

1.)  Atlanta Falcons    at home   (-2.5)   vs.  the  Tampa Bay Buccaneers   
  
 The Falcons don't seem to have improved in the off season and this young Bucs squad is just one year older but better. Devonta Freeman is a legit star in the running to balance Julio Jones in the passing game. However, their offensive line is sub par. Expect Mike Evans to have a big day and look for new starting TE, Cameron Brate in the red zone.

PREDICTION: BUCCANEERS

2.) Minnesota Vikings   (-2.5)  at  Tennessee Titans

Everybody is excited about the Titans fielding a better team on both sides. They have a young, physical OL, a stacked backfield and a Head Coach who knows how to coach up Mariota. However, I expect the Vikings will rally in the wake of Bridgewater's injury.

 PREDICTION: VIKINGS

3.) Philadelphia Eagles   at home   (-3.5)   vs.   Cleveland Browns

Is it a good idea to start Carson Wentz? We're going to find out and they better be right. The Browns look like they are headed in the right direction, but it's a long road ahead.

PREDICTION: EAGLES

4.) Cincinnati Bengals   (-2.5)   at   New York Jets

Both teams need a win to start the season, but a strong home dog in week one? NAH.

PREDICTION: JETS

5.) New Orleans Saints  at  home   (-1.5)  vs  Oakland Raiders

The Saints will score a lot of points but they will give up a lot more.

PREDICTION: RAIDERS    

6.) Kansas City Chiefs   at home   (-6.5)   vs.  San Diego Chargers  

The Chiefs are stacked and ready to roll.

PREDICTION:  CHIEFS

7.) Baltimore Ravens   at  home  (-3)   vs.  Buffalo Bills

Neither of these teams impresses me, so I'll go with my gut.

PREDICTION: BILLS

8.)  Houston Texans   at  home  (-8)   vs.  Chicago Bears

I'm not big on the Texans but the Bears are atrocious.

PREDICTION: TEXANS

9.) Green Bay Packers   (-5.5)   at  Jacksonville Jaguars   

Both teams neeed to shoe me something. The Jags need to demonstrate they really are a team to be reckoned with. Winning at home against a perennial contender like the Packers would be a good first start. Oh, and the points are too high.

PREDICTION: JAGUARS TO COVER

10.) Seattle Seahawks  at home  (-10.5)  vs.  Miami Dolphins

Dolphins suck.

PREDICTION: SEAHAWKS

11.) Dallas Cowboys   at home  (PK)   vs.  New York Giants

Eli Manning versus Dak Prescott? Ill take Eli.

PREDICTION: GIANTS

12.)  Indianapolis Colts   at home  (-3)   vs. Detroit Lions

The Lions never fail to disappoint.

PREDICTION:  COLTS

13.)  Arizona Cardinals  at  home   (-7)   vs.  New England Patriots

No Brady. No Gronk. Do the math.

PREDICTION: CARDINALS

14.) Pittsburgh Steelers   (-3)  at  Washigton Redskins  

Flip a coin.

PREDICTION: STEELERS

15.)  Los Angeles Rams  (-2.5)  at San Francisco 49ers

The 49ers are the worst team in football and Chip Kelly can have them.

PREDICTION: RAMS.
