Predictions for Every NFL Game in Week 1

The NFL is back! Athlon's NFL experts pick their winners for every game in Week 1.

As entertaining as the first week of the college football was, it’s time for the big men on campus to step aside for the professionals – the NFL is back! After a seven-month hiatus, the 2016 regular season kicks off Thursday night with a Super Bowl rematch between Carolina and Denver.

And speaking of the Broncos, starter Trevor Siemian isn’t the only quarterback making his debut, whether it’s for a new team or as a pro. Former Bronco Brock Osweiler makes his first appearance for the Texans against the Bears, while Robert Griffin III will lead Cleveland against No. 2 overall pick Carson Wentz and Philadelphia. Elsewhere, the Eagles’ former starter, Sam Bradford, and/or Shaun Hill will look to fill Teddy Bridgewater’s shoes as Minnesota opens on the road against Tennessee. And in Dallas, Dak Prescott gets his first shot as Tony Romo’s injury replacement against the division rival Giants. And let’s not forget about the Jimmy Garoppolo-led Patriots out in the desert against Arizona on Sunday night.

 

So which teams will come out on top in every NFL game to open the 2016 season? Athlon's own Rob Doster (AthlonDoster), John Gworek (JohnGworek), Steven Lassan (AthlonSteven), and Mark Ross (AthlonMarkR), along with AthlonSports.com contributor Bryan Fischer (BryanDFischer), predict the winners for every game this week:
