NFL Week 1 Predictions

Sorry I haven't updated in 2 weeks. Law school, Rosh Hashanah, and some other stuff got in the way.

I will put up my weekly predictions on the blog, (usually) before the first game of the week (I know I missed the Saints-Vikings, and while I would've picked the Saints, I won't count it in my record). By the way, this is picking who will win, with the spread having no relevence.

Here we go (home team in CAPS, the starred game is the one I have selected in my suicide pool):

Dolphins over BILLS
BEARS over Lions
*TITANS over Raiders*
PATRIOTS over Bengals
GIANTS over Panthers
Falcons over STEELERS
Browns over BUCCANEERS
Broncos over JAGUARS
Colts over TEXANS
Cardinals over RAMS
Packers over EAGLES
49ers over SEAHAWKS
Cowboys over REDSKINS
JETS over Ravens
Chargers over CHIEFS
