Week 1 never fails to have a few surprises and the 2011 season is no exception. For most of us, the Cleveland Browns weren't who we thought they were. The same can be said of the Atlanta Falcons. The Pittsburgh Steelers. Fortunately, our faith in the Cardinals was justified! Most participants ended the night with a winning record (thank you Raiders), but CardsIrish and don f showed us all how it's done, predicting all but the Browns game correctly. Congratulations, fellas. They will share the Weeks Won Point, the first tie breaker.
With just one week in the books, there's plenty of season to make runs especially as teams fall into predictable outcomes. I try my best to pick game that have good upset potential and I suspect I have some gems for Week 2 as well. The selected games follow the standings after the jump.
