NFL picks and predictions week 1

New, comments

The Silver & Black Pride makes their picks for the first week of the 2016 NFL season.

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Football is back! I know, we've said that before, but that was preseason. These games actually count. The games begin with a case of deja vu. It's weird but it seems like the last time we saw meaningful football it was the same two teams that we will see tonight.

Our staff is unanimous that the Panthers will take the Broncos in this one. Though, the Broncos won't be giving up their Super Bowl rings should they lose and Cam Newton may or may not throw another tantrum if the Panthers lose.

Other unanimous picks from our staff are the Chiefs over the Chargers, Texans over the Bears, Bengals over Jets, Seahawks over the Dolphins, and Cardinals over the Jimmy Garoppolo led Patriots.
