Pop’s Picks Week 1: Sloppy Sunday

Last year the Philadelphia Eagles gave us a preview of what it is like to field a team with a much-depleted roster due to injury. Coach Pederson did a great job of successfully managing games with practice squad players. Teams that can emulate that kind of coaching will be at an advantage. The lack of preseason games will make for interesting result I will be picking a winner without the spread for each game and I will be picking three games with the spread. I am really looking forward to this season, after thinking back in April that the 2020 season was in serious jeopardy. Have a great Sunday !

PickPick with spread
At Chiefs9TexansChiefs will start defending their Superbowl title by beating the Texans. Texans are good but not ready for the Chiefs.
At Bills6.5JetsThe bills have added some key elements, the Jets have too many holes to fill. Stefon Diggs will add a new dimension to the offense. Bills already have a solid defense. The Jets will not be up for this challenge.
At Vikings2.5PackersThe Packers beat the Vikings twice last year. Not going to happen this year. Vikings will win this one by more than 2.5 points.
Eagles6At RedskinsThe Washington Football has improved, good defense, Haskins will be better. The Eagles will win and cover.
At Ravens8BrownsRavens!!!
Colts7.5At JaguarsColts will win. First of many losses for the Jaguars.
Raiders3At PanthersI don’t think the Panthers are ready to win yet. Raiders win a close one.
