NFL Week 1 Preview and Picks

Chiefs vs Texans
Look for the Texans to win in a low scoring affair. Kansas City has a good defense but their offense is too predictable. Watch out for WR Jacoby Jones of the Texans who will play opposite Andre Johnson in the Texans offense.

Broncos vs Bills
Denver will win this game as they have the better QB and defense. Travis Henry will run all over the Bills and Champ Bailey will shutdown Lee Evans in the passing game. Bills might be 0-3 after their first three games as their next two games are on the road.

Steelers vs Browns
No upset here. Steelers will win with defense.

Titans vs Jaguars
Let's see if Vince Young can pass the ball and avoid the rush against the vaunted Jacksonville defense. It will be interesting to see how well new starting QB David Garrard does also for the Jags. I will give the advantage to the Jags today due to the running back duo of Fred Taylor and Maurice Jones-Drew.

Panthers vs Rams
This will be one of the better games of the week. Tough game to call here but I will take the Panthers in an upset. The Rams defense will not be able to stop Steve Smith or the running of DeShaun Foster and DeAngelo Wiliams.

Eagles vs Packers
The Packers have no running game right now and Brett Favre does not even have any healthy WRs to throw to today. Packers defense should be improved. This game could be close and I would have to give the edge to the Eagles because they have more explosive playmakers on offense.

Falcons vs Vikings
Very intriguing game here. I will go with the Falcons in an upset. These two teams won't be going anywhere this year.

Dolphins vs Redskins
Another game with two teams who won't make the playoffs. I would give the slight edge to the Redskins as they are at home but Jason Taylor will create havoc for Jason Campbell all day long. Look for Portis to get at least one TD today. This will be another low scoring game.

Patriots vs Jets
This game will be very compelling as the two coaches dislike each other very much. Patriots will win the game but it won't be easy. The game of the week next week is the Patriots vs the Chargers.

Buccaneers vs Seahawks
Seahawks will win this one going away. Jon Gruden will be on the hot seat after this game.

Bears vs Chargers
This could be a Super Bowl preview right here. Chargers will win this game because they are at home and because they have the best RB in football in LaDanian Tomlinson. Rex Grossman is not a very good player and will throw a costly INT or have more fumble problems.

Lions vs Raiders
Raiders will win this game because the Lions D is terrible. Their corners cannot stop anyone and Jerry Porter should have a big game as well as LaMont Jordan. Jon Kitna will throw at least 2 INTs and get sacked a few times.

Giants vs Cowboys
Dallas in a landslide here. Eli is not his brother and has not shown the accuracy to be a great quarterback in this league. Giants will miss Tiki Barber more than they think. Tom Coughlin is on the hot seat.

Ravens vs Bengals
Ravens will win this one due to their stingy defense led by Ray Lewis. I hope Chad Johnson gets in the end zone but it will be tough. Johnson has stated he will do something very entertaining if he scores a TD.

Cardinals vs 49ers
49ers have lost four straight times to the lowly Cardinals. I expect that to change Monday night as Frank Gore rushes for 2 TDS and the 49ers win in a high scoring affair.
