The regular season is here and the Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers face off in the season opener. That means we need to make out picks for the week.
Matt Ufford for Uffsides and the SB Nation staff highlight some of the games to watch and makes their picks.
But the gloating Seahawks fan is not the only one to make his NFL picks. Our ROTB staff made picks as well (some of them, at least). We welcome new staff writer Delilah Cassidy (a girl!).
Here are the picks of the week:
|Week 1 games||Jess Root||Delilah Cassidy||Jesse Reynolds||Alex Mann||Michael Oliver||Jason Mulkey||Skii|
You can see that we all went homer for the week as the Cardinals open the season on Monday Night Football at home.
But there was a lot of agreement. The Pats get the unanimous treatment, as do the Bears, Saints, Eagles, Jets and Lions.
The big upset picks of the week? Michael Oliver has the Packers upsetting the Super Bowl champs (that would be fantastic) and he goes with Andrew luck over Peyton Manning. Alex, perhaps channeling his inner hate for the Niners has the Cowboys upsetting San Fran. Delilah goes with the Browns over the Steelers, but looking at a season ago, it really doesn't qualify as an upset.
What do you say about these picks?
