    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.

    What a game this is going to be. Rematch of the NFC championship game. But the Saints proved last year how good their defensive line is.

    Saints-27

    Vikings-24

    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

    Raiders-21

Panthers @ Giants

    Last season the Panthers dominated the Giants 41-9 late in the year. That is something that will hang over from last year.

    Panthers-28

    Giants-21

Lions @ Bears

    These 2 are a perfect match for the Redskins. And they will show it against the Cowboys in an upset.
