Time is something I've had none of so I will slip this under the wire and worry about my divisional picks later. I will also keep exposition to a minimum.
Considering how large a role Tom Brady plays in the 'Greatest of all TIME' conversation, I was looking forward to seeing if he was more important to his team than Le'Veon Bell to the Steelers. Though we now won't get to find out, I still suspect not.
Until I see otherwise, I find an Alex Smith lead offense suspect against the Texan's defense.
Another prediction: Mariota looks better than Winston. The rest of the Titans however ...
The pick I am least comfortable with is the Seahawks over the Rams in St. Louis. I, for one, do not underestimate the gaping hole left by Kam Chancellor's absence of leadership in the Legion of Boom.
Every year, I look forward to end of the bye weeks. Strangely this year I have a similar feeling about the suspension weeks. I feel like the first 4 games are being dictated as much by Commissioner slap-down as good coaching roster decisions.
On with the games.
