2021 NFL Week 1 Picks | Chris’ Picks

NFL Picks 9/12/21

Eagles vs Falcons

The first game on Sunday’s card is the Eagles taking on the Flacons. The Eagles are fully in on the Jalen Hurts era with Carson Wentz being moved out of town. While the Falcons hope to improve this season, Matt Ryan is not the guy that he once was. I am taking the Eagles +3.5 in this game.

Chargers vs Washington

The second game on this card is the Chargers taking on Washington. Washington enters this game with one of the best on paper defenses in the league this season. The Chargers should be a good team, but I think that they start off slow with a new head coach and a QB who didn’t play in preseason. I am taking Washington 1H -108.

Steelers vs Bills

The final game on the early slate is the Steelers taking on the Bills. The Steelers enter this season following a major let down in the second half of last season. For the Bills, they were a win away from the Super Bowl and Josh Allen looks to have finally found his footing. I am taking the Bills -6.5 in this game.

Broncos vs Giants

The only game I’m looking at in the afternoon slate is the Broncos taking on the Giants. The Broncos and Teddy Bridgewater are looking to put together a successful season in Denver. On the other side, Daniel Jones has yet to show much of anything and could be on his way out entering his 3rd season. I am taking the Broncos -3 in this one.

Bears vs Rams

Finally, for SNF we have the Bears taking on the Rams. The Rams went and got Matt Stafford in the offseason who should be very familiar with this team. The Bears also made a change at QB and it looks like they will be riding with Andy Dalton to start the season. I think this game will be a high scoring one and I like the Over 44.5.

  • Eagles +3.5 (-110)
  • Washington 1H -108
  • Bills -6.5 (-108)
  • Broncos -3 (-104)
  • CHI-LAR Over 44.5 (-105)
