Schon: NFL Picks Week One

Hey kids… Welcome to Week One of the NFL season – the weirdest week in football. It's almost easier trying to figure out me ex-wife than it is to hit it big this early in the year.

Hey kids… Welcome to Week One of the NFL season – the weirdest week in football. It's almost easier trying to figure out me ex-wife than it is to hit it big this early in the year – but thanks to years of study, combined with more than a fair share of Coors Lite, I'm busting these out - ATS… The way I look at it when three different teams (Buffalo, Kansas City and Tampa Bay) fire their offensive coordinator, just weeks before the start of the season – you're in for a wild ride.

A few things to keep in mind for 2009 - the Broncos have absolutely zero-chance of making the playoffs, the fact that Brett Favre took a giant whiz on Green Bay fans by signing with the Vikes puts Minnesota back in contention in the NFC and even with T.O. in Buffalo and Matt Casell in KC, neither team has enough talent on the backside to make a serious run in their division.

Like I said, it's gonna be wild...

Titans +6 over the Steelers - W
Atlanta – 4 over the Fins - W
Ravens +12.5 over KC - W
Philly – 2.5 over Carolina - W
Cincy – 5 over the Broncos - L
Vikes – 3.5 over the Browns - W
Jets +4 over the Texans - W
Indy –6.5 over the Jags - L
Detroit +13.5 over the Saints - L
Cowboys – 4.5 over Tampa Bay - W
AZ – 6 over the 49ers - L
Giants – 6.5 over the Politically Incorrect Redskins - L
