Last week, I went 9-5 in the picking …… really for the first week of the season, I’d say it wasn’t bad. But, I do hope to improve. Let’s see what on schedule for today …..
(1-0-0) Ravens Ahh, yes! The old Browns vs the newer Browns. Cleveland looks like they finally started to improve, at least, they did last week. The Ravens OTOH, looked like they were ready to be a good football team, this year.
(0-0-0) Buccaneers I’ve no idea what the Buccs are like, this year. The Bears were surprisingly competitive against the Falcons, last week, so I may have this pick wrong. But, I’m going with the home team.
(1-0-0) Steelers The Vikings looked good last week ……. against the Saints. The Steelers did not look all that sharp. But, they’re back at home. I’m going with the Steelers.
(0-1-0) Patriots This ought to be an interesting game. It also figures to probably break records in the amount of passes thrown. It’s a hard pick considering both teams starts. I just can’t see the Pats losing two in a row.
(1-0-0) Chiefs I love these sorts of matchups! Already separating the prentenders from the contenders! We’ll see if the lose of Berry will be significant or not to the Chiefs D. But, the Chiefs really looked good last week.
(1-0-0) Jaguars This is another hard one to pick, but, I like the fact that the Jags discovered that you can run and be successful in this league. I don’t know where the Titans are. They didn’t look very good against the Raiders, but, then, they were playing the Raiders ……. so, today will tell us more about both teams.
(0-1-0) Cardinals This game is the opposite of separating pretenders/contenders. This game will let us know which team is really terrible. The Cards lost their stud RB last week. I had thought Palmer could still throw …… after last week, I’m less sure. Today, we get to see.
(1-0-0) Panthers Another hard call …… but, the Panthers at home is usually a good bet.
(1-0-0) Raiders I think the Raiders will be too much for the Jets.
(0-0-0) Dolphins Well, I’m probably just picking with my heart, here. But, Miami is supposed to be significantly improved this year. We’ll see.
(0-1-0) Seahawks I saw nothing from SF to think they’re going to be competitive this year. Should be an easy win for the ‘hawks.
(1-0-0) Rams The Rams looked good against the Colts, but, it was just the Colts. We’ll see how they do against the Redskins.
(1-0-0) Cowboys This should be a very good game! It’s always hard to play at Mile High … Siemian looked okay last week, but, that was against the Chargers. And, the Broncs running game looked good. But, I think the Cowboys are going to be too much for the Broncs.
(1-0-0) Falcons This should also be a great game to watch! And, I’m not sure how it will go, so, I’m going with the home team.
(0-1-0) Giants Historically, the Lions aren’t very good away from home, and I think the Giants are a better team than what they showed last week.
Well, that’s how I picked ‘em! What do you think?
