Who do you have this morning? I decided to go with the Falcons, Packers, Bengals, Colts, Chiefs, Patriots, Giants, Panthers, and Ravens. My pick'em year is toast at this point being just outside the Top 10 out of the 42 opponents I am up against, so now its all about Fantasy Football!

There are certainly some potential this morning for some upsets, but I am sure most eyes will be on Johnny Manziel. This could be his "Tim Tebow" rookie moment. Of course, I'm not a Cleveland Browns fan, so I'll be taking the woefully unpredictable Cincinnati Bengals today.

The only game this morning where MHR's Pete Baron and I differ on is the Atlanta Falcons and Pittsburgh Steelers game. He's probably going to be right, but I just have to believe one of the teams in the NFC South will wake up and somehow get to seven or eight wins to close out the season. Please God, one of you get there. I have no desire to hear about how a ten-loss team got into the playoffs while a 10-win team did not.

Here is what Pete had to say on this game:

Which Steeler team will show up this Sunday? The high powered offensive juggernaut with a stifling defense? Or the anorexic offense that we saw last week? The same can be said about the Falcons. Will Matt Ryan show up and score in bunches like they did last week? Or will they struggle to do anything like we've grown accustomed to? Both teams are fighting for their playoff lives which adds an extra dimension to this game. Prediction: Steelers 31, Falcons 27

Who do you have in these early games?
