We’re trying something new this year with our weekly NFL picks. It is Jess Place, Laurie Lattimore-Volkmann, and myself going at it head-to-head-to-head for the NFL picks guru Mile High Report crown. I’m also going to try something out with the community here by adding a poll at the bottom for readers to vote on who will likely get the better record for that week - provided we don’t randomly pick all the same teams. I’d also love to see people follow along with their own weekly picks in the comments section below.

For me, I tend to be pretty conservative with my picks early in the season because basing picks off of last year’s performances doesn’t always translate well to the next season. The riskiest pick I think I made this week was the Miami Dolphins over the New England Patriots,but it would appear that risky pick won’t even matter this week as they all picked the Dolphins too! Most of the rest of mine were pretty basic picking the favorites mostly.
