    OMG I have been waiting so long for the NFL to get back here. You may not no but i am a suffering Met fan. That's why. No I'm joking but I'm sure you were waiting for Week 1 to get here. 

    With great match ups like Vikings-Saints, Bengals-Patriots, and Ravens-Jets, this is going to be a great week to start the year.

    In my opinion, I don't think Chris Johnson will have as great of a year as last year. But against the Raiders, he will dominate.

    Titans- 41


Panthers @ Giants
