FootFlash Football Follies, week 1 picks 

Flash and Learned Foot have entered their selections for the three gams I offered on Wednesday.

Week #1

  1. KC (-1) @ Oakland. Flash wants the Raiders, Foot thinks this is KC in a walkover
  2. Miami @ Jets (-6). LF will lay the touchdown and take the Jets; Flash says Jets win but don't cover the number.
  3. Buffalo @ Tampa Bay (-2.5). Foot wants the Bills and the points. Flash is over the moon for Gruden and says Tampa easily wins this game.
Interestingly, they are against each other on all three games, so we'll have a leader after week 1. I will refrain from picking the games here myself,

UPDATE: Was busy catching a train, hit publish too early. I mislabeled Flash's pick in game 2 (noted in italics, sorry Foot!) and I meant to add that Tampa Bay is the trendy pick in Vegas this week. Is it resurgent Grudenmania or belief that Cadillac breaks on through? The Scholars are bullish on the TB running back, but the Bills are no ordinary defense. The bigger question is whether McGahee can run on the Buc defense: Bills are 8-0 when he gets a c-note on the ground.
