Can you believe the second half of the 2017 season starts tonight? Man, where does the time go.

It was a banner day for the staff picks last week. Had we not all been stupid enough to pick the Raiders to win in Buffalo, Chris and Marcus would’ve had a perfect week. But alas, homerism won again.

I guess we’ll never learn because once again we have all picked the Raiders to win (*unless RDreamer has a surprise in store). With my historically terrible season on Raiders picks (I have correctly picked just one Raiders game this season), I thought about doing everyone a favor and picking them to lose. But that seemed like the wrong reason, and I prefer banging my head against a wall.

*RDreamer’s pick will be revealed in his Friday Foretelling.

At least we’re not alone. It would appear the readers also picked the Raiders to win because no one had a perfect week. Six readers matched our staff best of 12 correct picks.
