The only for entertainment purposes Colts 101 weekly NFL regular season picks are going to make another appearance this season.
With our two-time reigning champion having moved on this season to our sister site in St. Louis, this gives us the chance to find someone new to pick against, and of course lose. With that in mind, I'd like to introduce our weekly guest picker, Chris Brown.
No, not that Chris Brown. But then again, I'm not that Steven Wright, either. This is just the site writer against an average Joe fan, or average Chris fan, who I've known since high school.
But for your reading purposes, feel free to pretend we have a long-time stand up comedian being pitted against a musical performer on a weekly basis.
The format for the competition remains the same. For all 17 weeks, we will pick the winner of every NFL regular season match up straight up, not against the betting lines, as this is not for gambling purposes. At the end of the season, we'll add up our totals and declare Chris …, err, either one of us the winner. I mean, who knows? Miracles can happen, right?
With that, here is how we see week one.
Baltimore at Denver
Chris: Broncos – Peyton Manning has been a beast.
Steven: Broncos – Colts fans know this to be the case better than any other. Denver won this game for the first 59 minutes last season in the playoffs, and they'll get the job against the defending Super Bowl champions.
New England at Buffalo
Chris: Patriots – The Patriots are such a dominant team and Buffalo, it's tough to think about them.
Steven: Patriots – All good things come to an end, and the Patriots organization must know time is starting to run short. I'm not certain the future of the Bills is on the other sideline though.
Seattle at Carolina
Chris: Seahawks – The Seahawks defense is great and they're my top defense on my fantasy team. I think Cam Newton will do a good job, but Seattle should dominate.
Steven: Panthers – Cross country trips always make me weary for the visiting team. It shouldn't matter as much in week one, but I'm banking on Newton to begin a huge season starting in this one.
Cincinnati at Chicago
Chris: Bengals – This is a tough one with two good defenses. Soldier Field is a tough place to play as well, but my gut goes with Cincinnati.
Steven: Bengals – Call it the Hard Knocks effect, as I enjoyed that show very much this year and am high Cincinnati's chances.
Miami at Cleveland
Chris: Browns – I don't see either being very good, but the Browns were more polished in the preseason.
Steven: Browns – Hopes are going to be on Trent Richardson's shoulder more than Brandon Weeden's this season for Cleveland, but both play well this week.
Minnesota at Detroit
Chris: Lions – I might be wrong here, but I'm sticking with it.
Steven: Vikings – It is on Detroit's defense to take its team as far towards a playoff push as it can this season. Won't it be a great start.
Oakland at Indianapolis
Chris: Colts – Oakland has to figure everything out on a yearly basis and it's no different this year. Andrew Luck after last season as a rookie has built up a lot of confidence.
Steven: Colts – Chris is already getting on the fan base's good side, I see. This one is going to be close if Terrelle Pryor uses his feet, as the Colts run defense still needs work.
Kansas City at Jacksonville
Chris: Chiefs – This may be an ugly game. I like Andy Reid's chances to turn the Chiefs around.
Steven: Chiefs – Two-toned helmet for Jacksonville. I may pick against it every game.
Atlanta at New Orleans
Chris: Falcons – Matty Ice against Drew Brees. The Saints offense should play well, but I think both sides of the ball for the Falcons will make the difference.
Steven: Falcons – Surprising big win for Atlanta on the road.
Tampa Bay at New York Jets
Chris: Buccaneers – Can we skip this one and just move on with the season? The Jets needed to stay with Mark Sanchez. I just don't have a lot of confidence in rookies making early starts.
Steven: Jets – I'm buying into the move to Geno Smith. Something has to give players on the team hope, and Sanchez being removed for now could quietly be a shot in the arm.
Tennessee at Pittsburgh
Chris: Steelers – Titans don't have what it takes this early in the year.
Steven: Titans – This could be a long year by Pittsburgh standards, and the Steelers need this one to avoid possibly a really rough start.
Green Bay at San Francisco
Chris: Packers – This probably can be the game of the weekend. Both teams are great, but I'm still skeptical on Colin Kaepernick.
Steven: 49ers – On the flip side, the 49ers defense should again be a strong force.
Arizona at St. Louis
Chris: Cardinals – Carson Palmer is a good fit in Arizona.
Steven: Rams – St. Louis could be a sleeper in the NFC, but the defense needs to show some evidence of improvement first.
New York Giants at Dallas
Chris: Cowboys – Giants are 4-0 in AT&T Stadium, but Dallas changes that. Tony Romo will be a different player this year.
Steven: Cowboys – Chris throwing out the stats. I'm foolishly buying-in again on Dallas being a possible playoff team.
Philadelphia at Washington
Chris: Redskins – The Redskins won't be running RG III like they did last season. I'd like to see Chip Kelly get his first NFL win, but it doesn't happen this week.
Steven: Redskins – Cannot wait for Griffin to take the field again so certain networks can dissect every play for five minutes each. Late score is needed to win.
Houston at San Diego
Chris: Texans – Houston has turned itself into such a powerhouse and San Diego is always a disappointment.
Steven: Chargers – Arian Foster has the most carries over the past three seasons. Houston should really think about a carry count for a few weeks this year.
