NFL Week 1 Game Picks

Predicting the winners of this week’s NFL matchups.

NFL: NFC Divisional Playoff-Atlanta Falcons at Philadelphia Eagles Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

The 2021 NFL season is HERE! We have a real, live game taking place tonight. Isn’t it great?

Football is back and so are the Bleeding Green Nation writers’ picks. Every week we’ll predict the winners of 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.

You, the reader, can also join in on the fun by voting for who you think will win the games (scroll down for polls). I’ll tally those results in a “BGN Community” column. The community finished in second place last year with John Stolnis edging you folks out as the overall winner. For the second year in a row! Let’s do our best to prevent him from getting the threepeat, shall we?

When it comes to this week’s Philadelphia Eagles game, not everyone is confident in the (midnight green) Birds starting the season with a win.
