Week one NFL game picks: Vikings nip Packers Week 1 NFL Game: Vikings Nip Packers Seahawks Very Well Surprised Russell Wilson-Led Broncos

Which Stadium: Mercedes-Benz Stadium (Atlanta) What time: 1 p.m. ET | fox Moneyline: Saint: -235 | Falcons: +192 Spread: Saint-5.5 | O/U: 42.5

The beginning group of saints paid a lot of attention to this when they had the opportunity in August. 

Jamies knows the Winston plan better than he did the year before, and the weapons have been greatly improved. 

The rivalry is full of surprises Falcons coach Arthur Smith might have planned up the sleeves, making

making the point impressive. New Orleans' lead should be ahead of him on either side, wearing Atlanta down.

Which Stadium and Where: Bank of America Stadium (Charlotte, NC) What time: 1 p.m. ET | CBS Moneyline: Brown:-105 | Panthers: -115

Spread: Panthers -1.5 | O/U: 42.5 Brown is no longer as talented. He currently ranks near the bottom of the league in quarterback,

 wide receiver, center, defensive tackle right tackle if Jack Conklin is not healthy. The Panthers are upgrading 

all the spots by bringing back healthy players (RB Christian McCaffrey, CB Jesse Horn) and finding a capable

starting quarterback. Gives a slight edge with the caveat that I have a lot of confidence in this game scoring less than any team wins.

Where: Soldier Field (Chicago) What time: 1 p.m. ET | fox Moneyline: 49ers: -320 | Bear: +250 Spread: 49ers -7 | O/U: 40.5

Does Chicago have enough crowds to make San Francisco's new offensive line look young? Could a worse

 opponent have been chosen to take against the Bears' patchwork line? The focus on Trey Lance has generally been overtaken

by the fact that the 49ers' defense with a running game involving Lance can win the game without much help from the forward pass.

Where: Pecor Stadium (Cincinnati) When will it start: 1 pm. ET | CBS Moneyline: Steelers: +228 | Bengal: -285

Spread: Steelers +6.5 | O/U: 44.5 This is called threading the needle when an underdog keeps the game close to the spread

point without an outright win. The Steelers would anticipate becoming the threading-the-needle champion

in the season. They're going to win more games. They've got plenty of friends to defend right now, coached by Mike

omlin because the quarterback's outside skill-positioning talent is undeniable. Still very few will come because of his

quarterback. It's a wild world when Bengals have a more stable QB and a loaded overall roster in this AFC North matchup.
