     I have been working at Prettyman Broadcasting since 2010, doing a little bit of everything, but my passion is Sports! I graduated from Shepherd University in 2010, with a degree in Mass Communications and New Media. I hosted a sports radio show there for 3 years. I love sports writing too, so expect some fun articles on this blog. I love talking NFL, NHL, MLB and NBA. Make sure you comment on the blogs too, because I love discussing sports.

Week 1 NFL Picks/Playoff Predictions

The time has come! The Regular Season is upon us! Time for my weekly picks. Week 1 has some great match-ups too. It is great to see Peyton Manning back, as the Broncos takes on the Steelers in a great Sunday Night Match-up, RGIII Era begins vs. Drew Brees, two top NFC teams square off with the Packers hosting the 49ers. As Tim Tebow would say: "I'm excited!"

Wednesday Night Football:
Dallas Cowboys at New York Giants
The Super Bowl Champs seem to always win these season openers and I expect it to continue this Wednesday. No doubt Dallas is talented and could easily win, but i'll take the Giants 38-31.
Sunday:

Indianapolis Colts at Chicago Bears

Atlanta Falcons at Kansas City Chiefs

Philadelphia Eagles at Cleveland Browns

Washington Redskins at New Orleans Saints

St. Louis Rams at Detroit Lions

New England Patriots at Tennessee Titans

Jacksonville Jaguars at Minnesota Vikings

Buffalo Bills at New York Jets

Miami Dolphins at Houston Texans

Seattle Seahawks at Arizona Cardinals

San Francisco 49ers at Green Bay Packers

Carolina Panthers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Sunday Night Football:
Pittsburgh Steelers at Denver Broncos
This is a really tough pick. I think Peyton Manning and the Broncos will pull out a close win though. Might not be too high scoring: Broncos 24-20.

Monday Night Football:
Cincinnati Bengals at Baltimore Ravens
The Bengals are good, but it is too hard to win at M&T Bank Stadium. Especially during the opening week of the season. The Ravens also want to wash that AFC Championship Game out of their mouth. Ravens 34-13.

San Diego Chargers at Oakland Raiders
This is a toss-up. Never easy to win in the Black Hole, but the Raiders don't impress me too much this season. I give the Chargers the edge: 31-21.

Now to my Playoff Predictions. I did my season preview, but it did not include the playoffs. Fun thing about these is that they are almost always wrong. Have to try though. So here they are:

AFC:
1. Patriots
2. Steelers
3. Broncos
4. Texans
5. Ravens
6. Jets

Wild Card Weekend:
3. Broncos over 6. Jets, 5. Ravens over 4. Texans

Divisional Round:
5. Ravens over 1. Patriots, 3. Broncos over 2. Steelers

AFC Championship Game:
3. Broncos over 5. Ravens

NFC:
1. Packers
2. 49ers
3. Giants
4. Saints
5. Bears
6. Lions

Wild Card Weekend:
3. Giants over 6. Lions, 5. Bears over 4. Saints

Divisional Round:
1. Packers over 5. Bears, 3. Giants over 2. 49ers

NFC Championship Game: 1. Packers over. 3. Giants

Super Bowl XLVII: Packers over Broncos
