Season starts on Wed. - no time to waste.

Heavyweight battle late Sun with SF/GB. Late games are starting at 4:25 ET instead of 4:15. Five rookie QBs to start the season - four will be on the road. How much will we be talking referees instead of players? Replacement refs were last used for regular games in week 1 in 2001 season - that was enough.

OP, question. How do you figure St Louis gets up to 31? I know Detroit's Pass D is bad but I don't see many threats to score on St. Louis Offense.

I don't know how the Rams offense gets to 10, yet alone 31. Perhaps he 'fat fingered' the 3.

Another thing, and this might be going out on a limb: I don't see the Packers hanging 34 on the Niners defense this week. If Cedric Benson is unable to run effectively, the Packers are going to have to make adjustments, because even Rodgers isn't good enough to throw against 5 and 6 DBs on every down.

I'm with you Mike! I really, really want the Packers to beat the 49ers but will not be a blowout, easy game. I don't see 34 or 24.

Alex Smith is a game manager, not a long ball QB, Moss will be interesting! I remember watching games where they had receivers wide open, ended up kicking field goals, lots of field goals.

I could see the Packers in the 20's, and SF in the high teens.
