Lock of the Week:

Week 1 is probably one of the hardest weeks to find a lock.  You don’t exactly know what teams are like, and you don’t know what to expect, and anything could happen.

Ryan: Giants – I guess I don’t have faith in Matt Moore, and the Giants will be at home, that combination smells like a lock to me.

Matt: Dolphins – They’re traveling to Buffalo, but Buffalo is just awful. They might not win a game this year.

Upset Special

Maybe we think this is actually going to happen, maybe we are only making the pick to try to find an upset special.

Ryan: Vikings – Maybe I am going with my heart here, and not so much my head.  But Favre comes back from the dead to beat the team that crippled him.

Matt: Panthers – They have the great running game the Giants used to have and their defense is underrated.
