The hot start I was hoping for did not materialize as my Bill Cosby (sleeper) team, the Vikings, let me down. And San Francisco which is starting 21 new players after everyone from last year's team except Colin Kaepernick left or retired, shocked me as well. No time to lick our wounds, another slate of games is upon us. new england -2 1/2 BUFFALO As you know by now, I place very little value on intangibles like Rex Ryan's attitude, or the Patriots wanting to come out hot in week 1 to stick in to the league. I believe in Tom Brady vs. Tyrod Taylor. Taylor may well turn into the black Tom Brady someday, but he's gonna have to prove it to me first. tennessee -1 1/2 CLEVELAND This is a tricky one for me because I know Mariota is not going to play like that again. But this is a pick against Manziel. He is not a NFL level starting QB. He's very Tebow-like in his ability, great college player, not NFL-caliber. arizona -2 CHICAGO I really like the Cardinals offense and hate just about everything about the Bears. PITTSBURGH -6 1/2 san francisco I'll give picking against the 49ers one more chance. BEST BET CAROLINA -3 houston Maybe I put a little too much faith in the Texans defense. It can't be a good sign that they changed QBs after one week. Last week: 2-3 (1 point) Season: 2-3 (1 point) Best Bets: 0-1 (0-1) Home Favorites: 0-0 (0-0) Home Underdogs: 0-1 (0-1) Road Favorites: 2-2 (2-2) Road Underdogs: 0-0 (0-0)

Each new season provides a new opportunity. An opportunity for what? That remains to be seen. I haven't been doing well the past few seasons but I trust this is my year to turn it around. indianapolis -2 1/2 BUFFALO The Colts are my Super Bowl pick and Andrew Luck is my MVP. And Buffalo doesn't have a QB anywhere close. carolina -3 JACKSONVILLE The Jaguars are still really bad, thought I don't love the Panthers this year I do think they are better than the Jags. HOUSTON +1 kansas city I don't like Alex Smith going up against this defense. Though with Foster and without a real QB, the Texans might have trouble scoring. green bay -7 CHICAGO This is a pretty big spread but I trust the Packers to put up enough points to cover. BEST BET minnesota -2 1/2 SAN FRANCISCO Pretty sure the 49ers have 100% turnover rate on their roster from last season, and no Harbaugh either. The Vikings are my Bill Cosby (sleeper) pick this year thanks to Teddy PuenteAgua (Spanish for Bridgewater).
