2014 NFL picks, Week 1: Patriots, Bears, Eagles get all the love

New, comments

Uffsides and the ROTB make their weekly picks.

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
GB/SEA SEA SEA SEA SEA GB SEA GB
NO/ATL NO NO NO NO NO NO NO
CIN/BAL BAL CIN CIN CIN BAL BAL CIN
BUF/CHI CHI CHI CHI CHI CHI CHI CHI
WAS/HOU WAS HOU HOU WAS WAS WAS WAS
TEN/KC KC KC KC TEN KC KC KC
NE/MIA NE NE NE NE NE MIA NE
OAK/NYJ NYJ NYJ NYJ NYJ NYJ NYJ OAK
JAX/PHI PHI PHI PHI PHI PHI PHI PHI
CLE/PIT PIT CLE PIT PIT PIT PIT PIT
MIN/STL STL STL MIN MIN MIN MIN MIN
SF/DAL SF SF SF DAL SF SF SF
CAR/TB TB CAR CAR CAR TB TB CAR
IND/DEN DEN DEN DEN DEN IND DEN IND
NYG/DET DET DET DET DET DET DET DET
SD/ARI ARI ARI ARI ARI ARI ARI ARI

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?
