Can you believe we're about to close out the first month of the 2016 season? And what a tough season it's been to predict across the board. Teams starting rookie quarterbacks (Eagles) and third string quarterbacks (Patriots) are undefeated while teams picked to compete for the Super Bowl have just one win and at the bottom of their division (Cardinals).
Hopefully the predictions will get easier, but for now it has a couple of the staff at or below .500 in their predictions this season. That's what Tyler gets for picking the Browns to win every week.
The staff looks to be pretty well split on the Raiders in Baltimore. Some have thanked me for picking against the Raiders considering the one time I picked them to win (along with the rest of the staff) was the one week they lost. Those people will be happy once again this week. I got your back. Then there's Jeff and Tyler who have picked the Raiders to win every week. Yay team!
And for what it's worth, I was 9-7 in my weekly Raiders picks last year.
This week's unanimous selections are the Bengals, Colts, Lions, Texans, Washington, Broncos, Cardinals, and Steelers.
