NFL Picks Week 1 2018: Predictions by Football Writers

New, comments

Predicting the winners of this week’s NFL games.

NFL: NFC Divisional Playoff-Atlanta Falcons at Philadelphia Eagles James Lang-USA TODAY Sports

The Bleeding Green Nation weekly writers picks are back for the 2018 NFL season! Each week we’ll predict the winners of each and every game on the schedule. We’ll tally the results along the way and see who comes out on top at the end of the season. Feel free to post your own predictions or discuss the writer predictions in the comments. Let’s get to this week’s picks.

You can also vote for who you think will win the games. I’ll tally those results in a “BGN Community” column. I’m sure you readers will be quick to remember that you were the winners of last year’s BGN picks. Just another example of how you (collectively) always know more than I do. :)

Vote in the polls beneath the table. (Click here if you can’t see the polls.)
