Week 1 NFL Picks And Parlay

Ginants CowboysWeek 1 of the 2013 NFL season is officially underway as the Denver Broncos destroyed the defending Super Bowl champions, the Baltimore Ravens, 49-27 on Thursday night in Denver, Colorado. Peyton Manning and the high-powered Broncos offense absolutely torched the Ravens defense with a fast paced offense and two new key additions to the passing attack. Peyton Manning tied the NFL single game record with SEVEN touchdown passes, yeah, seven touchdown passes on opening night against the defending champs and a defense that isn’t too shabby. Manning was the first quarterback to toss seven touchdown passes in a game since Joe Kapp of the Minnesota Vikings in 1969. The game was very close at halftime though with the Ravens leading the Broncos 17-14, but in the second half the Broncos just went full beast mode and Manning played like a robot. It was a great way to open the 2013 NFL season and I also picked the Broncos to win the game and if you don’t believe me, go scroll down my twitter and check my prediction @ScoreboardSteve. If the Broncos play like this on a weekly basis, they may go undefeated, but lets not get too far ahead of ourselves after one game. Their defense has some question marks still, as we have to see if they can hold up without LB Von Miller, who will miss the first six games because of suspension. Either way though, Denver looks like one of the top teams in the league and Baltimore could definitely use some help in their secondary. I’m not buying that, that was the Ravens team we will see all season and I’ll stick by my prediction of the Ravens winning one of the two wild card spots and returning to the playoffs this season.

We have quite a few more marquee big game match ups to go in week one still and here they are: Cincinnati Bengals @ Chicago Bears, Minnesota Vikings @ Detroit Lions, Atlanta Falcons @ New Orleans Saints, Green Bay Packers @ San Francisco 49ers, New York Giants @ Dallas Cowboys, and the Philadelphia Eagles @ Washington Redskins. So the NFL did a very good job with their week one scheduling and it should be a fun and exciting first Sunday of the football season. I did very well in my regular season and playoff picks last season, although I was wrong on the biggest pick of them all, the Super Bowl. In the Super Bowl I picked the 49ers over Ravens, 27-24. Hopefully I get it right this year. Here are my week one picks.

New England Patriots over Buffalo Bills
Pittsburgh Steelers over Tennessee Titans
New Orleans Saints over Atlanta Falcons
New York Jets over Tampa Bay Buccaneers
