Solid week for all of us with another crazy tie thrown into the mix. Definitely a weird first couple weeks of the season. Personally, I watched a lot of the Saints-Browns game and if Zane Gonzalez is still a kicker in the NFL by the end of the year, he has more mental fortitude than most humans. Just an excruciating game for him and another heartbreaking loss for the Browns, who are still looking for their first win in about 650 calendar days. Other surprises…FitzMagic knocks off the SB Champions and may have cemented the starting position until he regresses to the mean (would you take him out if you were the head coach?), the Dolphins are 2-0 and look pretty decent, Patrick Mahomes is on pace to be the best QB ever (and with Andy Reid as his coach, this could get real fun to watch), Rams are as good as last year and the Cardinals are just plain awful, Jon Gruden’s Raiders can’t get to Las Vegas soon enough, the Bears Defense led by Khalil Mack is the real deal, and the Jaguars are probably the best team in the AFC. It’s been two weeks, but with the NFL, extrapolation with little data is the name of the game. We start tonight with the Browns looking for a big win at home with Sam Darnold’s Jets coming to town. Here are our picks (Mr. Papson is on an island a bunch down there – could be a big week for him if things work out):
