    Oak at NE -

    Oak - 21 NE - 24
    I was going to give the edge to Oak, but how can you pick against the reigning superbowl champs at home. Plus, it will take a while for Oak to develop chemistry between Collins and Moss.

    TB at Min

    TB - 7 Minn - 14
    Even though I don't think Minn will have as good as of a year as they are being predicted to have, I still believe they will win this 1st home game. TB just doesnt have enough offensive weapons.

    Tenn at Pitt

    Tenn - 3 Pitt - 21
    I think this is probably the easiest pick of the draft. A rebuilt offense versus a Superbowl defense and a non-existant Dline versus a run heavy offense.

    Chi at Wash

    Chi - 7 Wash - 10
    Who knows what will happen in this one. I don't think either team is really all that "predictable." That being said, i think Wash has made a good addition with Moss and Rogers.

    NO at Car

    NO - 14 Car 10
    I feel like NO really got back on track last year, and with the loss of Moose and the possibility that Davis might not be at 100% again, I think the nod goes to NO.

    Sea at Jac

    Sea - 7 Jac 21
    Jacksonville has a good run defense set up again this year, and so Alexander won't be as effective in this game as usual. Taylor should be healthy as well (its the start of the season) and Leftwhich is primed for a big season.

    Hou at Buff

    Hou -14 Buff - 10
    Maybe this is because Im a Texans fan, but I really don't think Losman will have a strong fist game. The texans know he is a rookie and so will stack the boxand stuff the run. This will force JP to beat us with his arm, and given our great DBs, I think he'll get nervous and throw INTs. Evans and Moulds vs. Robinson and Bucchanon will be a great matchup though. That being said, scoring 14 against Buf could be tough.

    Cin at Cle

    Cin -28 Cle 10
    Chad Johnson is a beast and I think Cin will have a great year this year. Cle just doesnt have anything special on offense. 3 RBs would be better off as 1 RB and 1 WR if you ask me.

    NYJ at KC

    NYJ - 21 KC -24
    KC added some much needed defense and maintained a killer offense. Maybe Green and Holmes will slip this year, but I think it will be enough in this first game. Plus they are at home and that stadium is tough.

    GB at Det

    GB - 21 Det - 35
    This is conditional given that Harrington won't suck too badly. 3 Great WRS against a weak GB secondary could be brutal, or Harrington could have a bad game and be benched for the rest of the season. Either way, Garcia or Harrington should put up some big numbers here.
    GBs offense should do well, but the lions have the better defense.

    Dal at SD

    Dal - 7 SD - 24
    SD is great at stopping the run and I don't think Dal has a viable passing offense. Dallas is trying a new defense in the 3-4 and SD will tear them apart.

    Stl at SF

    Stl - 28 SF - 10
    I don't think I even really need to explain this one. Stl has a great offense and SF is still rebuilding. Look for Alex Smith to have an unremarkable first game.

    Ari at NYG

    Ari - 21 NYG - 14
    I think Arizona will finally come into their own this year. They have sped up and powered their defense and had a great draft.

    Ind at Bal

    Ind - 17 Bal 20
    Best offense versus the best defense? I think it cancels out, but the Baltimore offense is better than the Ind defense, and so I think Baltimore gets the nod in this situation. D. Mason is used to running routes against Indy DBs and so should have a great game.

    Anyway, these are by no means meant to be accurate, just for fun. Let me know what you think.

    That is a most daring pick. If you feel confident, I would advise you to place some $$ because you could get great odds on it.

    Over here.
    My prediction is that you guys will make massive changes to those picks by the time preseason is over--and then the original picks will be more correct anyway, lol.

    good picks everyone. I believe the Ravens will beat the Colts. Colts have weak D and strong offense, but i think Ravens Offense can get enough done and the Defense will win it for them.

    The lions either win game 1, or they get swept by Greenbay this year.

    Because we flat out can not beat them on the road...Ever....
