2016 NFL Picks Week 1

I'm back with what will be my fifth (!) year of NFL picks. I ended up picking nearly 63% of last year's games correctly, down a bit from 68% in 2014. Click the "NFL Picks" tag below to see my past picks. I'll once again attempt to pick at 70% or better this year...

I had a great playoff run last season, finishing 9-2 (82%) despite an incorrect Super Bowl 50 pick. It was my best playoffs in terms of correct predictions, though there is still room for improvement.

For those new to my picks, or those that need a refresher:
  • Winners will be bolded
  • Upsets will be italicized
  • *Pick of the Week* will be offset by asterisks
  • Picks will be made straight up, though upsets are determined by the spread
  • Upsets determined from SportsLine
On to the Week 1 picks for the 2016 NFL season!
