Each week at Fake Teams our writers will offer their predictions for the upcoming games. This was a recent decision, so no one will profit from Clark’s contrarian Kansas City pick this time around. But be sure to check in each week for staff picks and a running tally of the most accurate writer. Hint: It will probably not be yours truly.
Buffalo (-385), Atlanta (-250), and Pittsburgh (-440) were all unanimously picked to win by our staff. Each are heavy favorites, so this comes as little surprise.
Mark is the only writer to pick Detroit. Pete is the only Jaguars believer. Is J.E. Barnett an Indianapolis fan? Matias and Clark appear to be banking on Kyle Shanahan working some offensive magic in a home-opener against my Panthers...I find that offensive.
I am most surprised by three writers (Pete, Clark, Ghoji) choosing the Chargers over Denver. Maybe they know something I don’t. I told you I am bad at this. We shall see.
