Evan Kessler Dot Com

The Home of the Brave

Are You Ready For Some Football?!?!?!?!

This guy certainly is and with good reason, the NFL season kicks off Tonight with the Pittsburgh Steelers starting their title defense against the Miami Dolphins at home at Heinz Field. For the last 15 years or so I’ve been making picks against a family friend, Bruce. Each year the winner is taken out to lunch or dinner by the other, so there’s a lot at steak…er…stake. Anyway, I thought I would bring this battle to EvanKessler.com, because what’s more fun than showing everyone how incompetent I am at something I’ve been doing for so long?

So without further ado, my week 1 predictions:
Dolphins over Steelers (Bruce went with the Steelers)
Baltimore over Tampa Bay (Bruce went with Tampa Bay)
New Orleans over Cleveland
Panthers over Atlanta
Seattle over Detroit (Bruce went with Detroit)
Philadelphia over Houston
Tennessee over NY Jets
Cincinatti over K.C.
Denver over St. Louis
New England over Buffalo
Dallas over Jacksonville (Bruce went with the Jags)
Chicago over Green Bay
Arizona over 49ers (suicide pool pick)
NY Giants over Colts
Vikings over Redskins
San Diego over Raiders

So there you have it, my picks for week 1. There was no special method to my madness since there’s precious little we can tell at the outset of the season. I contemplated using the Balki Bartokomous sysem (i.e. A Panther is stronger than a Falcon, therefore the Panthers would win) but I decided against my better judgement not to employ this sort of desperation as of yet. Bruce on the other hand has never failed to pick the Jets to win any week since we’ve been doing this until this week. That’s how little faith he has in the current squad. He usually always picks the Falcons so there are some noticeable changes in his game plan. Alright, I have to go to work now. Stay tuned.
