Hello football fans! Welcome back to he NFL season!
We start this 2014 campaign with a clean slate. But let’s catch you up to speed just in case you forgot.
The Seattle Seahawks destroyed the Denver Broncos to win their first Super Bowl in the first winter environment. Since then, new faces have emerged in the NFL.
Johnny Manziel brings his “Johnny Football” persona to Cleveland, but their starting quarterback for Week 1 is Cleveland native Brian Hoyer. The Vikings selected QB Teddy Bridgewater, and he’ll also watch from the bench in favor of Matt Cassell.
Suspensions galore have been handed out. Ray Rice, Aldon Smith, Wes Welker and even Jim Irsay (Colts owner) received suspensions for various reasons. As you can see, we already have fireworks.
Yet, there still must be football to be played. Here are my picks for this week. Remember, the s.o. initials stand for my shutout pick.
