NFL Picks Week 1 2016: Predictions by Football Writers
Football is finally back. The 2016 NFL season officially begins Thursday evening as the Denver Broncos host the Carolina Panthers in a Super Bowl 50 rematch. In honor of the new season, we’re starting up a new weekly NFL picks prediction column. Every Thursday, the Birds 24/7 staff will predict the winners of each and every NFL game that week.
We’re also inviting you, the readers, to get involved by voting in the polls below. We’ll take your favorites to win each game and log them in the “Community” column in the prediction table. 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.
