Eagles at Falcons (+3). 7 p.m. ET

The Philadelphia Eagles have all their fans fooled again.  Not only them however many other gamblers are jumping on the guaranteed Bismarck.  Chip Kelly has amassed a real team but are we really supposed to believe that Sam Bradford can catapult them to the glory they so desperately need.  Sam Bradford has had not 1 but 2 career threatening knee injuries.  Even prior to that he was no Joe Montana.

The Falcons are strong at home and have a plethora of great offensive options.  Matt Ryan at QB will no doubt start the season well.  They have also drafted well and fixed a shoddy pass rush.

The Pick: Falcons (+3)

Vikings at 49ers (+2), 10:15 p.m. ET

Given my love for the Packers I tried really hard not to let it sway me on this.  I just think the 49ers cannot be any worse than last year.  They have some players returning and have a new deep threat in Torrey Smith to counter the scrambling  threat that Kaepernick is so adept at.

The Vikings will be a tough nut to crack however.  I just cannot see them going to SF and winning.

The Pick: 49ers (+2)
