The NFL is back, and now the games matter!

No one is more excited for Week 1 of the NFL season than Bleacher Report's lead writing crew. For your reading enjoyment, we've provided our picks and will do so all season long. In future weeks, we'll even be "keeping score" of our predictions so we can keep each other honest. There may or may not be bragging rights involved as well. 

This week is going to come roaring out of the gate with a fantastic Baltimore-Denver matchup that ended up in Mile High because of an Orioles game in Baltimore. From there, fantastic divisional matchups like Atlanta-New Orleans, Minnesota-Detroit and Philadelphia-Washington will have our interest piqued. 

Of course, the storyline of Week 1 is new faces in new places. How will Chip Kelly fare in Philadelphia? What about Carson Palmer in Arizona, or Alex Smith in Kansas City?

Disagree with our picks? Great. Give us yours in the comments below, and tell us why you're right and we're wrong.
