9-7 in Week 1, which I forgot to mention is always the hardest week to pick in the entire season. Was on a roll with only 3 wrong until the late Sunday games tripped me up. Split the Monday night doubleheader to finish above .500 on that night.
Earlier on Twitter I picked Green Bay over Chicago. A much easier win than I thought. Onto today’s games.
Oakland 0-1 at Miami 0-1
Saw parts of San Diego/Oakland while at work. You didn’t miss much if you couldn’t stay up. Most notable for Oakland losing pretty much because of a backup long snapper’s horrible performance. Caused a couple of fumbles and bad punts. Miami was worse last Sunday so have to go with the Raiders.
Houston 1-0 at Jacksonville 0-1
Houston versus a team that is giving up some home games for London, England in the future. Needless to say not much a home field advantage in Jacksonville.
Cleveland 0-1 at Cincinnati 0-1
The Browns rookie quarterback, Brandon Weeden, got run over by a big American flag and then had a horrible game. Think I should go with the Bengals.
Kansas City 0-1 at Buffalo 0-1
My pick of the Bills last week didn’t work out. Laid an egg.
Baltimore 1-0 at Philadelphia 1-0
Eagles barely beat the lowly Browns. Baltimore looked good in the first week. Although go back a year ago and same thing happened. Followed up a big Week 1 win with a bad loss. I still will go with the Ravens.
Minnesota 1-0 at Indianapolis 0-1
Indy struggled against Chicago. Minnesota won a overtime game against Jacksonville, which is still a win. You can tell I’m not a fan of the Jags.
Arizona 1-0 at New England 1-0
New Orleans 0-1 at Carolina 0-1
New Orleans should get back on track against an overrated Cam Newton. Look at the 2nd half of last season and Newton had a dropoff in passing.
Tampa Bay 1-0 at NY Giants 0-1
NYG don’t have a good record at home over the last few seasons, much better on the road. Road record since 2006 is 32-17 and in New Jersey they are 25-23? Weird.
Washington 1-0 at St. Louis 0-1
Robert Griffin III with a great debut. I still say I’m looking forward to 2013. A decent season for 2012 is good enough for me. That trade with St. Louis was one I agreed with and now I’m very glad they did that.
Dallas 1-0 at Seattle 0-1
I’m picking Dallas to go 2-0. I can leave my allegiances at the door when making picks.
Tennessee 0-1 at San Diego 1-0
San Diego won on Monday, not impressive by any means. But the Titans have a rookie QB and not much going for them.
NY Jets 1-0 at Pittsburgh 0-1
Like my Packers pick over the Bears I think Pittsburgh needs this game more than NY.
Sunday Night, Detroit 1-0 at San Francisco 1-0
San Fran handled Green Bay so they should be able to handle a lesser team from the NFC North.
Monday Night, Denver 1-0 at Atlanta 1-0
Just a hunch.
