Pete's Week One Picks

Pete TreperinasCorrespondent ISeptember 6, 2008

Detroit @ Atlanta. 12-6 Lions. They'll squeak by a weak Falcons team, but the Lions won't look too good in week one.

Cincy @ Baltimore. 17-7 Bengals. The Bengals will take the Ravens at home. Flacco has lots of work to do, while Palmer might just connect with Ocho Cinco a couple times.

Seattle @ Buffalo. 20-17 Seahawks. Hasselbeck versus Edwards. Who would you take?

NY Jets @ Miami. 28-20 Jets. The new-look Jets offense gets the best of Tuna's Dolphins.

Kansas City @ New England. 45-17 Pats. Tom Brady and Randy Moss set the pace for the Patriots first of many wins.

Tampa Bay @ New Orleans. 32-24 Saints. Brees will have a big game, while it starts to become clear that Jeff Garcia is simply just too old now.

St. Louis @ Philadelphia. 31-13 Eagles. The Rams don't stand a chance.

Houston @ Pittsburgh. 21-20 Steelers. The Texans will show up for this one, but Big Ben will prevail.

Jacksonville @ Tennessee. 20-17 Jaguars. I believe that these two teams will be wildcard winners this year, making this a close, cut-throat game. I'll give Garrard the edge at home.

Dallas @ Cleveland. 14-10 Cowboys. This one will be a defensive battle. D-Ware and co. will get the job done though.

Carolina @ San Diego. 41-21 Chargers. The explosive offense of the Chargers runs all over the Cats in this one.

Arizona @ San Francisco. 17-3 Cardinals. Frank Gore can't do it by himself. It looks like J.T. O'Sullivan is hurt, so it'll be Shaun Hill or Alex Smith. I'll take Kurt Warner to take control of this game.

Chicago @ Indianapolis. 38-20 Colts. Peyton should be close to 100%, which means the Colts win this game easily.

Minnesota @ Green Bay. 24-17 Packers. The Vikings will win the division, but the Packers will win on Monday night.

Denver @ Oakland. 23-20 (OT) Raiders. Cutler will play average, and so will the Raiders. I'll take a shocker, and Oakland at home.
