Welcome in! We're back for what we believe is our sixth season of some of the most half-assed, uneducated and completely untrustworthy National Football League predictions on the web.
Don't take us seriously, people -- we sure don't.
The format for the season will be explained fully in the full Week One edition, but here's how the columns will be released this year:
Wednesday night/Thursday morning: Thursday night game (if applicable)
Thursday night/Friday morning: Sunday & Monday games (also posted as always with our friends at SportsFilter
Over the weekend: Any news we think worth passing along, or line moves worth taking advantage of
For now, here's the Thursday night season opener. Enjoy the season!
Baltimore (+9) at DENVER (48): Retired Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis said this week the blackout at last year's Super Bowl was intentional because the Ravens had a big lead. It's a good thing the lights came back on, or everyone in the building could have wound up mysteriously stabbed (in a manner that absolutely nothing to do with Ray Lewis, of course -- just his friends). Broncos 24, Ravens 23.
