RSO Staff Picks: Week 1

Updated: September 6th 2018

And. We. Are. Back. The NFL season kicks off tonight in the City of Brotherly Love as Matt and my beloved Eagles play host to the Atlanta Falcons in a playoff rematch from last year. With Carson Wentz not back from injury yet, Nick Foles gets the opportunity to prove that last year’s magical run was not a fluke and that with our without him at the helm, the Eagles are a true threat to defend their Super Bowl Championship in 2018-19. In this post last year, we spoke about Tom Brady and getting back to the Super Bowl game, which he did, coming up just short but playing one of the best games by a QB ever (not just in a Super Bowl). Which teams will surprise in 2018 and which familiar squads from last year’s playoff picture will make another run? Cannot wait to find out. As we have in prior years, Matt, Kyle and I will pick each game every week of the season (the rest of the writers will join us for the playoffs). Matt won again last season in an extremely tight year long race where every one of us had a really solid win-loss record. We look to get off to a hot start again this year with our Week 1 picks, which are below. Enjoy the games!
