NFL: New York Jets at Buffalo Bills Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Greetings, Raider Nation, and welcome to the 2019 edition of our Silver and Black Pride staff pick ‘em contest! Most years, our fearless leader Levi Damien is the best at this, but last season’s contest was won by Ryan Lipton. That contest was against the spread, but we’ve decided to go back to standard pick ‘em this season.

We have a seven-man panel of pickers including Levi, myself, Marcus Allen Krause, BD Williams, Cyril Penn, Evan Groat and Thomas Wheaton. I’ll also be presenting the community results as tallied by Adds99, just as soon as I have results to share next week.

Without further ado, here are the predictions for Week 1.

As always, the Great Raiderdamus’ pick for the Raiders game will be revealed in the Foretelling on Friday morning. I know you all can’t wait.

The picks were evenly split for the Green Bay vs. Chicago game on Thursday night and for the Minnesota vs. Atlanta game, but we had several unanimous choices including Cleveland, Baltimore, Philly, both Los Angeles teams and Dallas. Assuming the Great Beyond picks the Raiders, they too would be a unanimous pick. I myself went out on a limb taking the Jags over the Chefs, and Cyril is the lone voice in the wilderness saying the Bills will overcome the Jets.

I’ll bring you results and laughing and pointing next week.
