Hello football fans! Welcome to the official start of the 2016 NFL season.

We start with a rematch of the Super Bowl, as the Carolina Panthers visit Denver to seek revenge against the Broncos.

The Panthers are back for this rematch, except for Josh Norman, who went to join the Washington Redskins in the NFC East. His team will host the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first of two Monday Night games.

Speaking of returning, the Los Angeles Rams return to the City of Angels. Before they have houseguests, they make the trek to Santa Clara to take on the San Francisco 49ers.

We’re also in a new era of quarterbacks, as barely proven arms take over high-profile jobs. Can Brock Osweiler right the ship in Houston? Will Sam Bradford reignite his college days with Adrian Peterson in Minnesota? Can Dak Prescott hold the fort in Dallas?

Perhaps the biggest question will be hinted at this Thursday night. Trevor Siemian will take the helm against Carolina. He hasn’t thrown a single pass in preseason.

Is he the next step for Denver after Peyton Manning’s retirement? Let’s see if Gary Kubiak’s plan pays off.

Here are my picks for this week. Remember, the s.o. stands for the shut-out pick:

 Thu Sep 8 8:30 pm  Carolina Panthers  Denver Broncos
 Sun Sep 11 1:00 pm  Buffalo Bills  Baltimore Ravens
  1:00 pm  Chicago Bears  Houston Texans
  1:00 pm  Cincinnati Bengals  New York Jets
  1:00 pm  Cleveland Browns  Philadelphia Eagles
  1:00 pm  Green Bay Packers  Jacksonville Jaguars
  1:00 pm  Minnesota Vikings  Tennessee Titans
  1:00 pm  Oakland Raiders  New Orleans Saints
  1:00 pm  San Diego Chargers  Kansas City Chiefs
  1:00 pm  Tampa Bay Buccaneers  Atlanta Falcons
  4:05 pm  Miami Dolphins  Seattle Seahawks
  4:25 pm  Detroit Lions  Indianapolis Colts
  4:25 pm  New York Giants  Dallas Cowboys
  8:30 pm  New England Patriots  Arizona Cardinals
 Mon Sep 12 7:10 pm  Pittsburgh Steelers  Washington Redskins (s.o.)
  10:20 pm  Los Angeles Rams  San Francisco 49ers

Keep in mind all times and games are subject to change. Good luck to all teams and those who are also making picks as well.
