Since I began this blog two years ago...I have been providing a weekly preview and also picking my winners and losers each week. In past years I had special guests join in with their two sense and opinions. This season will be no different. So without further a due...here are my picks and predictions for Week # 1: In the past I have given my picks against the spread; however this season I will just go with straight up winners and losers.
Now onto the Falcons. Atlanta was one of last season's most disappointing teams. Matt Ryan had his worst professional season. The Falcons did have many injuries. Number one receiver Julio Jones was lost for the season and Free Agent Running Back Steven Jackson spent most of the season on the sidelines. The Falcons have sured up their offensive line so there is hope that "Matty Ice" can turn it around. The Falcons have improved in the secondary so they hope that will limit the amount of big plays they give up.
MY PICK HERE IS THE NEW ORLEANS SAINTS 35-24
MY PICK IS THE VIKINGS 24-17
MY PICK IS THE STEELERS 16-13
MY PICK PHILADELPHIA EAGLES WIN 42-20.
MY PICK IS THE NEW YORK JETS 23-13.
MY PICK IS THE BENGALS 27-20.
MY PICK IS CHICAGO BEARS 23-13.
MY PICK IS HOUSTON 27-23.
MY PICK IN AN UPSET INDY 38-35.
