Well, it’s finally here! And, if you’re like me, it isn’t a moment too soon! Let’s get right to the predictions!
(0-0-0) Jaguars I expect the Jags will be much improved from last year. The Pack don’t typically start off hot, so, I’m going with the Jags. This should be a great game if you like a lot of offense.
(0-0-0) Chiefs The Chargers always seem to play the Chiefs pretty tough. But, I see KC challenging for the division this year, and I don’t see it with the Chargers.
(0-0-0) Raiders This will be interesting to me, because, I see the above mentioned division title to be a race between the Raiders and the Chiefs …… that was before the Denver win on Thurs. As we go into the season I see their division as the strongest division in the league.
(0-0-0) Bengals You know, it seems like every year I hear about how the Jets are going to be much improved over the last year. Blah, blah, blah…….. Cincy takes this one.
(0-0-0) Browns This is probably a case where my heart is leading my head, but, watch RGIII! Word is that he’s got it together in Clev.
(0-0-0) Vikings This is an interesting game to watch. Hometown hero Shaun Hill is starting at QB for the Vikes. (Sam Bradford will take over later, and work as QB until he gets hurt again, and then Hill can finish up for the Vikes.) The Titans are supposedly much improved, we’ll get to see how they are against a tough defense and AP.
(0-0-0) Texans Honestly, I’ve no idea how the teams are going to work out this year. No one really does. But, I’ll take the Texans on this one.
(0-0-0) Ravens Again, I’ve no clue. The Bills are supposedly improved, but then, the Ravens are supposedly, as well.
(0-0-0) Buccaneers Atlanta folded last year. I’ll pick against them until they show me something different.
(0-0-0) Seahawks My fish open against a tough opponent, one of the class teams in the league. We’ll see how the new coach approaches this game, but, I think the Hawks will get this one. (But, watch Tannehill and Arian Foster!)
(0-0-0) Cowboys There are a lot of people very optimistic about the Cowboys this year. I’m not. In fact, if it weren’t for them playing the Giants, I’d be picking against them. They have a rookie QB and a rookie starting at RB. Both are about to see something they’ve never seen before. I think, though, at least in the start of the season the ‘boys would be well served to interject Alfred Morris quit a bit at RB. He looked good in pre-season and Dallas could use some experience in the backfield.
(0-0-0) Colts Well, if you like passing, you’ll love this game. My prediction is that nearly 100 passes will be thrown in this game.
(0-0-0) Cardinals Game of the week!!!! This should be a great one to watch. No Brady in this one though, so it may not be such a great game to watch. We’ll see.
(0-0-0) Steelers The Redskins are suppose to be greatly improved this year. They’ll have to show me.
(0-0-0) Rams Eh, ……. well, who cares?
Well, those are my picks for this week. What do you think?
