For the first time since I was probably a pre-teen boy, I have taken the Buffalo Bills to win for the first three weeks of a season. I was a pre-teen boy back in the early 1990's and yes, my family did straight up pick'em in a spiral notepad every week during the regular season when I was growing up. And no, I did not win in that pick'em league until I was 20 years old.
I feel like the Miami Dolphins could win this game, but I really have liked what I've seen from the Buffalo Bills so far. More so than what I've seen from the Dolphins, but I am definitely not taking into account that this is Miami's home opener. Suffice to say, I'll probably regret this pick.
The other two games are much easier picks for me. I think the San Francisco 49ers are going to have their hands full against the Arizona Cardinals, which will likely end in a double digit victory for the home team. Then you have a desperate Seattle Seahawks team at home against the Chicago Bears, who will be without Jay Cutler and Alshon Jeffery. That game will likely end in a debacle for the visiting Bears, getting the Seahawks away from their 0-2 start.
Who are you rooting for in these early games?
