RSO Staff Picks: Week 1

Updated: September 5th 2019

And just like that, the summer is in the rear view mirror and the 100th NFL regular season begins tonight in the Windy City of Chicago with a classic Packers-Bears matchup. After an injury plagued 2018, Aaron Rodgers will look to make a statement tonight proving all his doubters wrong. On the other side, third year QB Mitchell Trubisky will look to take another step forward as the defending NFC North Champions look to make a deeper playoff run in 2019. It all gets going at 8:20 EST on NBC tonight, and we are pumped for the start of the NFL and RSO!

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). Kyle edged out Matt in the final week of the season last year for the year long crown and bragging rights. Week 1 is always a bit of a crap shot, so here are our picks for opening week below. Enjoy the games!
