    The Ranker NFL Pickoff- Week 1 (Make Your Predictions)

    Angie Marie asked if I would consider doing a NFL pickoff also. So here it is, it's a lot harder to find the top 5 games of each week in the NFL, because there are so many meaningful games, but here are the top 5 marquee games in my opinion.

    Washington at Green Bay- My pick is Green Bay
    St. Louis at Atlanta- My pick is Atlanta (I'm a huge Falcons fan so we better not lose this one)
    Denver at New York Giants- My pick is Denver (I think Peyton going to do a little more than Eli in the "Manning Bowl")
    San Francisco at Seattle- My pick is San Francisco (This one is really tough, been going back and forth, but I think the momentum from that Green Bay win will propel them to a victory)
    Pittsburgh at Cincinnati- My pick is Cincinnati

    Good luck with your picks!

    Thanks for playing, PolkadotKing, that San Fran/Seattle game is a tough call on everyone.

    To be honest, I almost picked St. Louis myself, our offensive line did not look good last week, but we're playing at home, so hopefully we will do better. Thanks for playing and good luck with your picks this week.

    Yay, Mikey! I'm definitely in on this one!

    Washington at Green Bay: Green Bay (Rodgers over RG3 any day of the week)
    St. Louis at Atlanta: Atlanta (As much as I can't support the Falcons, I do think they are the better team)
    Denver at New York Giants: Denver (Let's play which Manning do I dislike the least.)
    San Francisco at Seattle: Seattle (This one's really hard!)
    Pittsburgh at Cincinnati: Pittsburgh (Bengals, LOL)

    Thanks for playing Stokified, how many touchdowns do you think your boy is going to get this week? I'm an Atlanta Falcons fan, but there's part of me that is pulling for Peyton Manning to get one more, so people won't be able to say that Eli has more than he does, because in my opinion Peyton is a much better QB, Peyton is up there with some of the greatest ever in the history of the NFL. Good luck this week!

    I think Peyton will throw 4 touchdowns this week. Hopefully the Giants have 6 turnovers this week like last week. If the Giants had one less turnovers they probably should have won, that shows you how bad the Cowboys are. The NFC east is the most overrated division in the NFL. I'm so glad the Broncos play that division this year.

    Only one I care about is Skins-Packers and there you've gotta take GB. RG3 is like a wounded antelope and the big cats on the Packer defense (esp. Clay Matthews) are going to separate him from the herd and then devour him.

    How's that for a goofy sports/wildlife metaphor??

    Stanley if you like rooting for the 9th best team in the NFL go ahead (NFL Power Rankings: Broncos replace Niners at No. 1; Saints rising - CBSSports.com). The Packers will probably beat the Redskins, which doesn't say much about the Packers. I would rather watch the 2nd best team the 49ers play the third best team the Seahawks. And I would rather watch the best team the Broncos play the 20th best team the Giants. I would rather watch the 8th best team in the Falcons play the 18th ranked team in Rams than the Packers vs. Redskins game. Your going to be missing some good football, I hope you enjoy watching 1 game a week.

    Ok here's my picks mikey...
    The Packers will defeat the Redskins big
    The Falcons will easily handle the Rams
    The Broncos have far too much firepower for the Giants to deal with
    The Seahawks just get by the 49ers...homefield advantage and a great secondary are big in this one
    and the Bengals easily beat down the anemic Steelers and their tepid offense...Big Ben's time has run out...
