Thoughts from insidej0b
New England – Because the Jets are a dumpster fire.
Atlanta – At home and the Rams might be improved, but not that much. I could see Courtland Finnegan starting a brawl that gets half of the Falcons
ejected. If that happens, I’m all in on St. Louis.
Buffalo – Home team, hung with New England. CJ Spiller wins this game.
Chicago – Adrian Peterson is all Minny has. He was shut down last week other than his first touch of the game. He may regret talking as much as he did in the off season.
Indianapolis – The Dolphins suck. Beating Brandon Weeden doesn’t change that.
Green Bay – No way this team loses two in a row to start the season even if they aren’t as good as years past.
Houston – Pittsburgh looked like they could be the worst team in the league last week, with Houston showing what they’re made of with that comeback
against the Chargers.
Chiefs – I believe in the Chiefs this year. Think they are going to turn some heads. A quarterback and a head coach can go a long way, especially on
a team that was already loaded with pro-bowlers. And, oh yeah, Tony Romo.
Eagles – If the Chargers can blow a lead like they did on Monday against a team with years of tape on them, then they are going to have some real
trouble with Chip Kelly’s offense, unless they knock Vick out of the game, which could (and will at some point in the season) happen.
Ravens – Brandon Weeden.
Lions – Coin flip. I’m pulling for the Cards but think that a combination of Reggie Bush and Calvin Johnson is going to be too much for a lot of teams to
handle this year.
Saints – Even though the Bucs are coming into this game angry with something to prove against a division rival after that late-game debacle against the
Jets, the fact that the Jets were still hanging around for that to happen says all that needs to be said about the Bucs.
Broncos – Because they’re the best team in the AFC and the Giants aren’t close to the best in anything.
Raiders – The Raiders managed to put up 17 points on the Colts last week, who are a good team. The Jaguars are not a good team. I’m not even sure
they’re a team at all.
Seahawks – Another coin flip. Going with the Seahawks because of the home field advantage.
Bengals – This Bengals defense is for real. Again. And Pittsburgh only got into the end zone one time against a Titans defense that isn’t in the same
league as these Bengals. The Bengals have a great chance to run away with the AFC North this year.
