2010 NFL Week One Picks

Paul RaymondCorrespondent ISeptember 9, 2010

Alright, it’s time for another season of NFL FOOTBALL!!!! Who else is excited??? With kickoff about an hour away I’m finally starting to get in the mood for the season. (That’s what happens when you’re a New York Yankees fan, baseball season overshadows football for a bit).

This week’s picks won’t be all up tonight, which means this post will be on going. I have my totals as I’m part of a pick ‘em competition in the Nationals Scores Predicting League. Those totals are posted below while I work on the details.

As with last year the home team will be denoted by all caps.

NEW ORLEANS 31 – Minnesota 24 – This is without a doubt the game of the week, what a treat after their NFC Championship game may have been the game of the 2010 NFL season. With Brett Favre back in the fold for the Vikings it definitely makes the game a lot more interesting, so how does it turn out? I say the Saints ride the emotions that the Who Dat nation provides to victory. The two sides are pretty evenly matched but I think the brief time the Vikings had to gel will come back to haunt them. So with that being said, I’m going with the Saints tonight.
