STRAIGHT UP John Kryk
No point spreads here. tells you who is going to win each game ... and why LATER GAMES
KRYK PICK: Can the Eagles open 2-0 on the road? If they were playing this week at the Colts or Jets, sure. Not at Kansas City. Look, the Eagles’ pass rush is for real. Chiefs won’t put up 500+ again. But they’ll win.
KRYK PICK: If the Vikings’ offensive explosion Monday against the Saints wasn’t a fluke, this could be the game of the week. But how bad is Sam Bradford’s knee swelling? Steelers will be sharp in home opener.
Hurricane postponed the Bucs’ opener. They’re overrested. Although Chicago played the Falcons close in Week 1, Jameis Winston and co. aim to prove just how highpowered their ’17 attack will be.
KRYK PICK: If another terrible Saints defence can make Sam Bradford look like Tom Brady, what will actual Tom Brady do to them? An angry, embarrassed Tom Brady, even without Amendola? Pats win a shootout. 4:05 p.m. ET KRYK PICK: Dolphins starters haven’t played in three weeks. Jay Cutler has taken just 32 snaps since October, all in the preseason. So yeah: Miami rust. Before hundreds of their own new fans, Chargers will prevail.
4:05 p.m. ET KRYK PICK: Let’s review the only ways the Jets can win: [Error 404 — This file does not exist].
fantastic in wiping out the Giants on Sunday night. It was an emphatic message. O-line and D-line both dominated — a surprise. And road games don’t scare this bunch. 4:25 p.m. ET KRYK PICK: The Redskins blew it in their home opener. Can’t and won’t do it two weeks in a row. DT Aaron Donald, who ended his holdout this week, is back for the Rams. Probably won’t play much. Take the Redskins.
4:25 p.m. EDT KRYK PICK: When the Seahawks are steaming mad, as they were after some game-changing questionable calls in a loss last week at Green Bay, look out. Awful O-line and all, they’ll crush a rebuilding Niners team.
8:30 p.m. ET KRYK PICK: You mean to tell me you think the Lions can open the season 2-0 by defeating any team, let alone a New York team, on the road, on a Monday night? Well think again. Giants can’t afford to start 0-2.
Tom Brady and the Pats will look to bounce back from a rough Week 1 loss by laying waste to the Saints putrid defence in New Orleans. Right, Jameis Winston and the Bucs make their season debut vs. Chicago.
