An Idiot’s Guide to Week 1 NFL Predictions

Giants over Cowboys…

Yeah, I know the game is already over but I’m a huge fan of upsets. 

Actually, I had picked the Cowboys over the Giants.  (So +1 on the season, so far).  Here are my slightly less certain predictions for week 1 of the NFL.

Bears over Colts
Chiefs over Falcons
Eagles over Browns (but low scoring, something like 17-6)
Saints over Redskins
Lions over Rams (Rams actually keep up in this shootout)
Titans over Patriots (upset of the week)
Vikings over Jaguars
Bills over Jets
Texans over Dolphins
Seahawks over Cardinals
Packers over 49ers (in a blowout)
Panthers over Bucs
Steelers over Broncos (Big Ben wins by a neck)
Ravens over Bengals (but barely)
Raiders over Chargers (McFadden puts up over 150)

Fantasy Stud of the Week: Kevin Ogletree.  Just got a feeling.
Serious Fantasy Stud of the Week: Matthew Stafford
Fantasy Sleeper of the Week: Greg Olsen

Other crazy picks:

Kamerion Wimbley 3 sacks vs. the Pats
Robert Turbin 100 + yards on the ground
Michael Vick only plays one half due to injury
Jason Witten plays with a missing spleen
Beanie Wells and Ryan Williams combine for about 56 yards rushing
The Jets have 1 passing touchdown
Replacement refs do just as good as the regulars but look much less self-assured
