Now, for those of you new to our site, I pick games a little differently. I poke fun at every team (including our bumbling band of motley pirates) and try to have fun with these picks.
Don't bet your house on them. Don't expect to get rich quick on my football prognostication skills. Drink responsibly.
I will say though last year I didn't do so bad at throwing Saints on the wall and seeing if it sticks, hitting in at the 60% range (better than Aguayo) and that would have placed me higher than many NFL "experts". Unlike many of them, I actually pick an upset every week (which likely brought my average down a little further).
Alright, let's get this wagon train going!
Last Week: 0-0 100% Upset Specials: 0-0 100%
Final Regular Season Record:155-101 60% Upset Specials: 16-24 53%
Panthers 27, Broncos 13 - I don't expect either one of these teams to get close to the Super Bowl LI but the Broncos may not even make the playoffs with Trevor Siemian (who?) as QB. Then again, I was the guy who said the Patriots were doomed when Bledsoe went down and some guy named Brady took over as QB.
Upset Special #2: Browns 23, Eagles 16 - Yes, Crazy DLT is back...picking the Cleveland Browns - yes the Cleveland Browns to win a road game in Philly. Now, this wouldn't have happened had the Eagles not traded away Sam Bradford and started green rookie QB Carson Wentz but they did so I'm rolling with the newly revitalized RG3.
Raiders 34, Saints 20 - Oakland is everyone's off-season darling, they have to prove it. Saints are who we thought that are...were? I'm so confused. Denny Green, we miss you.
Cardinals 27, Patriots 20 - Yes...all part of my master plan for the Bucs. The Cards will be riding high from their home win over the deflated Pats and overlook the little band of bumbling Buccaneers from Tampa Bay in Week 2. Yes....muh hahaha.
