Welcome to our 0-1 party!

Almost all of us picked the dirty, rotten Bengals, with the exception of a couple whose coin flipped the Texans way!

I have to believe that Marvin Lewis (HC since 2003) may be in trouble, unless he has something on the owner?

Bengals play GB next at Lambeau. Only team Rodgers hasn't beat. A writer wrote, trouble with the game is Packers are known for fixing whatever ails any given team??? What??? Can we please concentrate on Week 2 first!

I can't understand how he wasn't fired after their humiliating playoff loss to Pittsburgh 2 seasons ago.

Damn those Texans, being less sucky than Cincinnati. I'm befuddled how Marvin has a job with 14 years without one playoff win. Yes, he made the Bengals revelant but you gotta set higher standards at some point.

haha, it's more that I will never ever trust the Bengals and pick them. Lewis shouldn't even be a question at this point, fire him and start over.

Houston Texans at Cincinnati Bengals. Both teams stunk last week, so this is basically a pick em....however....I think the Texans with Watson have more upside than the Bengals do. Watson wasn't very good either but I have a feeling these are what the Bengals are, a mediocre to bad football team. Will get the rest in over the weekend.
Buffalo Bills at Carolina Panthers. Panthers should win in their home opener
Minnesota Vikings at Pittsburgh Steelers. I picked against the Squeelers last week and they won. Hopefully picking them to win means they lose!
New England Patriots at New Orleans Saints. Patriots defense was bad, but I see them bouncing back. Saints defense is STILL bad and are already having locker room issues.
Philadelphia Eagles at Kansas City Chiefs. Are the Eagles for real?? Almost nobody is picking Philly, so I could steal a game here if the Eagles win.
Chicago Bears at Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Bucs at home over the toothless & clawless Bears.
Arizona Cardinals at Indianapolis Colts. Can I pick a tie?? Palmer looks to be on his last legs and the Cardinals are a greater than touchdown favorite......on the road! Without Luck, I think the Colts maybe the worst team in football. Nobody was more embarrassing week 1 than the Colts.
Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens. This will be a close game as the Brownies are much improved, but the Ravens take it.
Tennessee Titans at Jacksonville Jaguars. This is a tough game. I'm thinking the Jags may surprise this year, and if they want to, they better win games like this at home.
New York Jets at Oakland Raiders. Should be an easy.
Miami Dolphins at Los Angeles Chargers. I actually liked the Chargers until I heard Melvin Ingram's idiotic comments the other day when he basically said Cutler brings nothing to the table. You lost to Trevor freaking Simien in week 1, shut up!
Dallas Cowboys at Denver Broncos. Broncos at home.
San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks. I've got the Seahawks in the survivor league, so better pick them here.
Washington Redskins at Los Angeles Rams. Another tough pick Obviously the Redskins are better then the Colts, the Rams may actually have to break a sweat this game. But the Redskins have to fly across the country, and McVay would love to beat his old employer. I'll take the Redskins just because I trust Cousins more than Goff, even though Goff severely outplayed him last week.
Green Bay Packers at Atlanta Falcons. Packers open the Mercedes Benz stadium with a road win.

Detroit Lions at new York Giants. Yes, I know Caldwell is a better coach than McAdoo, Stafford is now a better QB then Eli, and the Lions are a better team than the Giants. if this was in Detroit it would be a no brainer, but I still can't pick myself to pick the Lions on the road in a national TV game.
