4caster Frank's Weekly Picks

Last Week:
Season Total:

WEEK 1

-2.5

49ers 24 Giants 13

Giants TE Jeremy Shockey will be a star, but the lack of a running game and an inexperienced offensive line will doom them against good defenses like the 49ers.


+3

Bills 20 Jets 17

Drew Bledsoe shines in his season debut in front of the home fans of Buffalo, by leading a last minute drive that wins the game with a FG.

+1

Eagles 24 Titans 20

Last year the Eagles were road warriors winning 7 games on the road. Look for the Eagles to continue to fly high away from the concrete field of the Vet by beating the Titans.

-8

Redskins 27 Cardinals 21

The Redskins will win the game, but they will not win by 8 points, as Steve Spurrier finds out its harder to roll up the score in the NFL Regular Season.

+2

Ravens 10 Panthers 9

Stinker of the Week: Two years removed from the Super Bowl the Ravens look like an expansion team, the Panthers have just named Rodney Peete their starting QB. A Beer League playing in the park is more entertaining.


-3.5

Bears 27 Vikings 20

Even playing away from their home in Champaign, Illinois the Bears will still be a contender, while the Vikings are just on the road to recovery.


-1.5

Bengals 24 Chargers 20

Two teams hoping to make strides from the bottom this year, both will improve, but the home standing Bengals will have the edge in Week 1.

+2.5

Chiefs 27 Browns 24

Even if QB Tim Couch plays he won’t be a 100% and if Couch is not healthy the Browns won’t beat anyone.

+8.5

Packers 31 Falcons 24

In a battle of star QB present in future look for Brett Favre to start the season off on a winning note, but look for Mike Vick to give the Falcons a backdoor cover with a late TD.

-2.5

Colts 38 Jaguars 17

The Jaguars are in for a very long season, as the team begins the rebuilding process, by getting blown out by the Colts at home.


-8

Dolphins 27 Lions 6

The Dolphins will feast on the Lions all day as Ricky Williams runs wild while the Dolphins defense smothers the young Lions.


+3

Broncos 35 Rams 30

Even the high-flying Rams will get winded in the high altitude of Denver, as the Broncos win an offensive shootout.

+8

Raiders 20 Seahawks 17

Last year Seahawks RB Shaun Alexander sliced the Raiders for over 200 yards. Not only will they not over, but they might also have a tough time winning.


-5.5

Buccaneers 20 Saints 3

The Gruden era in Tampa starts with a dominant win over the New Orleans Saints as the Bucs take control of the weak NFC South early.


+8.5

Texans 24 Cowboys 20

Upset of the Week: With 5 recent All-Pros the Houston Texans are not your traditional expansion team. Beating the Cowboys in primetime will prove they belong n the NFL, and give them immediate bragging rights.

+1.5

Steelers 20 Patriots 17

Game of the Week: The Pats return to reality as the Steelers get revenge for the AFC Championship Game by spoiling the Monday Night opener at Gillette Stadium.
