So I'm bored, and I feel like I need something to do. I am going to try to post my weekly NFL picks, and give a reason why I chose that team to win. I'm going to warn you now: these picks are picked SOLELY on my opinion. Very little if ANY research will go in to any of these picks. Hopefully I can keep this up, and have a little bit of fun while doing it. OK. Here we go!
Baltimore vs Denver
Reason: I pick Denver to win this game because...well...Peyton Manning. He shocked the NFL last year when he returned with his new surgically repaired Cyborg neck, and I feel like he will continue that success this season. He will also be looking for some revenge after that playoff loss to them last year. Also, Baltimore sucks and I hate them.
New England vs Buffalo
Winner: New England
Reason: Do I really need a good reason? Buffalo is Buffalo, and New England is Tom Brady.
Seattle vs Carolina
Reason: Have you seen Seattle's defense lately? I have a feeling they will slow down, and stop Cam Newton and his rag tag group of Panther friends.
Cincinnati vs Chicago
Reason: I'm going to be honest here: I have no idea WHY I am picking Cinci to win this game. I'm just going with what my gut is telling me, and that is, Dalton and AJ Green are going to bring it the heat.
Miami vs Cleveland
Reason: Oh look! A game I have zero interest in! I think Cleveland pulls out the W here. I feel it will be a close game and Richardson will be the reason for the win.
Minnesota vs Detroit
Reason: The Vikings are going to hand the ball off to AP all day. AP will then run over Detroit all day. Detroit took a big step backwards last year, and I'm not 100% convinced they have done enough to get themselves back into playoff contention. These two teams are divisional rivals, and they won't be afraid to beat up on each other.
Oakland vs Indianapolis
Kansas City vs Jacksonville
Winner: Kansas City
Reason: ANDY REID IS A QUARTERBACK GURU AND ALEX SMITH WILL SHOW THE 49ERS THEY ARE DUMB!!!!111 They are also playing the Sparkle Kitties and what better way to start the season then with a warm up against a (should be) high school team.
Atlanta vs New Orleans
Reason: Daggum this is a good match up. I pick Atlanta because I feel they upper hand defensively. It's a great divisional game to start the season off with, and I'd probably actually watch the game if they weren't playing at the same time my beloved Titans were.
Tampa Bay vs New York (Jets)
Winner: Tampa Bay
Reason: The Jets
Tennessee vs Pittsburgh
Reason: I cannot EXPRESS how pumped I am for this game. Tennessee vs Pittsburgh. I pick Tennessee to win this game for obvious reasons, but also because I hate Pittsburgh with a growing passion. Typing the word Pittsburgh even pisses me off.
Green Bay vs San Francisco
Winner: Green Bay
Reason: Not gonna lie, this pick doesn't make much sense to me. I guess I just feel like Rodgers is going to go out there and put up enough points on the board to pull out the win. That 49ers defense is really good though....dammit...you know what
Green Bay San Francisco
Arizona vs St Louis
Winner: St Louis
New York (Giants) vs Dallas
Winner: New York (Giants)
Reason: I love watching "America's Team" lose, and I love watching them lose to a divisional rival. I think the Giants will come out swinging...hard...and Dallas won't be able to do enough to stop them.
Philadelphia vs Washington
Reason: (jeez there are a lot of good divisional games kicking off this season) RG3 returns, and I think he comes back trying to show the world that his repaired knee will be something to be feared...unless he takes a helmet to the knee on the first snap. I think Philadelphia will still need just a LITTLE bit more time to fully get this new fangled offense they are under.
Houston vs San Diego
Reason: *sigh* I really really reaaaaalllllly hate picking Houston to win, but I feel like I have to. San Diego has a mess of an offensive line, and Houston has Watt.
Whelp. There you have it. Jerlindsey's week one picks! Hopefully I can keep this up, and hopefully it is at least a LITTLE bit entertaining. If not, then that's OK, I'll make it up by posting a gif or something in the comment section on a few threads.
