NFL Predictions 2013: Week 1 (plus season picks)
Authored by: dbsmall onThursday, September 05 2013

I'm not as detailed as Norcalfella, but here are my straight-up picks for the week:

 

DEN
 
NE
PIT
TB
NO
KC
SEA
CHI
CLE
MIN
IND
ARI
SF
NYG
 
WAS
HOU

 

Some of you are probably saying...wait, what?  Arizona over St. Louis?  Minnesota over Detroit?  Yes.  And Yes.

For ARI vs. STL, I always take experience and guile over youth and exuberance.  I'm no Carson Palmer fan (though Alexander is exciting), but he's been around the block.  By contrast, I expect a lot of flash from some of STL's offense, but I don't expect consistent play through more than 3 quarters.

For MIN vs. DET, you have to realize that both teams are struggling with QB inconsistency.  That means the ground is where it's at.  All. Day.  (And Calvin Johnson will be a non-issue.)
