NFL Picks: Week 1 Results / Week 2 Picks




Welcome to Week 2 of NFL Picks.

Here were the standout picks from Week 1:

  • Correct Picks for everyone: Texans, Eagles, Cardinals, Patriots
  • Wrong Picks for everyone: Titans, Browns, Falcons
  • JohnnyX77 was the only one to choose the Buffalo Bills and got it right.

Our standings from Week 1 as well as our overall PowerRankings, presented this week by the 9/11 Memorial Foundation:

1.) Deus Legend / 10
T2.) BlazenHawks / 9
T2.) JohnnyX77 / 9
T4.) Stopable / 8
T4.) Jerhawk / 8
6.) SRO / 7

Here's the Week 2 games. Please have your picks in prior to the kickoff of the particular game you're choosing for. Normally we don't do the upset specials until Week 10, but this week has a special game in it due to the high point spread:

Chiefs @ Lions

*Seahawks @ Steelers (Super Bowl XL Grudge Match)(Steelers favored by 14.5 pts)

Bears @ Saints

Jaguars @ Jets

Browns @ Colts

Cardinals @ Redskins

Packers @ Panthers

Buccaneers @ Vikings

Ravens @ Titans

Raiders @ Bills

Cowboys @ 49ers

Chargers @ Patriots

Bengals @ Broncos

Texans @ Dolphins

Eagles @ Falcons (Sunday Night is Vick Night)

Rams @ Giants (Monday Night)

So, if you decide to pick the Seahawks and they win, you'll receive 2 points due to the high point spread in that game. If the Steelers win and you choose them, you'll still get 1 point.

Thanks everyone, and good luck.

Hello everyone and welcome to NFL Picks. Week 1 of NFL Picks presents the most possible points of the entire season. I'll separate this week into three parts.

We'll get season 4 started by picking the Week 1 games. These games are all worth one point each. Please have your picks in prior to the kickoff of the particular game you're choosing for:

Vikings @ Chargers

Panthers @ Cardinals

Seahawks @ 49ers

Cowboys @ N.Y. Jets (Ryan Bros. Sunday Night Showdown)

Patriots @ Dolphins (Monday Night Game 1)

Raiders @ Broncos (Monday Night Game 2)

Picking for those games was Part 1 of Week 1. This week presents many bonus point opportunities that you can get at the end of the season. In Part 2, we'll be picking each divisional winner. These are worth 3 points each, and will be added to your total score if you pick the division winner correct.
