Baltimore Beatdown Picks: Week 1 Starting this season , Baltimore Beatdown staff members will pick the winners for each week’s slate of match ups. Readers will also be able to cast a vote for each game at the bottom of this article. The staff and reader poll results will be tracked through the year to see who predicts the most games correctly.An analysis of the Baltimore Beatdown staff picksConsensus winnersOut of 16 games, Beatdown writers agreed across the board on just fourcontests: Ravens over the Bills (BAL -7.5)Saints defeat the Buccaneers (NO -9.5)Packers best the Bears (GB -7.5)Rams win on the road against the Raiders (LAR -4.0)With Nathan Peterman starting for the Bills, it is difficult to envision the Ravens dropping their home opener. With Tampa Bay losing quarterback Jameis Winston to suspension, New Orleans has a much clearer path to victory. The return of a healthy Aaron Rodgers is a scary prospect for Chicago, hence the agreement among the staff. As one of the most electric teams in 2017 Cheap Mark Andrews Jersey , Sean McVay’s Rams made lots of moves this offseason to position themselves for success, and the Raiders will be adjusting to new head coach Jon Gruden, making it harder for Oakland to come out on top. ‘Lone wolf’ picksSome staffers find themselves on a island with their predictions:Zachary is the only writer to pick the Texans to upset the Patriots in Foxborough (NE -6.5)Kyle B. is alone in his idea that Ryan Tannehill can get the W against the Titans (TEN -1.5)Logan goes against the popular vote for two games: Browns over Steelers (PIT -3.5) and Cowboys winning against the Panthers (CAR -3.0)And I am the only writer who thinks Sam Darnold will win his regular season debut for the Jets against the Lions (DET -6.5) Home field advantage...?Baltimore Beatdown writers are 50/50 on the power of home field advantage. The majority of writers predict eight teams will lose in their house during Week 1:Eagles (PHI -1.0)Giants (JAX -3.0)Dolphins (TEN -1.5)Colts (IND -3.0)Browns (-3.5)Broncos (DEN -3.0)Cardinals (ARI -1.0)Raiders (LAR -4.0)With Carson Wentz still not ready to start, most of the staff thinks the Super Bowl hangover will get to Philadelphia for Thursday’s opening contest. While the Giants have fire power in Saquon Barkley and Odell Beckham Jr., the Jacksonville defense is expected to contain New York. Coming off a wild comeback victory over the Chiefs in last year’s playoffs , Marcus Mariota and the Titans should be able to handle the floundering Dolphins. Andrew Luck is likely to still be shaking off the rust when the Bengals travel to town. While the Browns have made personnel strides, it is unlikely they will be able to vanquish the reigning AFC North champion this early in the rebuild. The Cardinals are also in transition, making Glendale fertile ground for Alex Smith to make his first start as a Redskin a victory. All writers’ picks can be found in the table below.NFL Week 1 PicksPicksDustinFrankJakeKyle A.Kyle B. LoganSageVasilisZacharyPicksDustinFrankJakeKyle A.Kyle B. LoganSageVasilisZacharyJoin in and vote below for each Week 1 match up!PFF: Anthony Averett played well and Orlando Brown Jr. shines again Pro Football Focus had their eyes on last night’s exhibition against the Rams and found some exciting stats to share with the readers of Baltimore Beatdown!OffenseThis is Zeus Jr.’s second-straight pre-season game delivering impressive results. Against the Bears he and Jermaine Eluemunor allowed only a single pressure each on 48 pass-blocking snaps, meaning he’s allowed only one pressure on 83 pass-blocking snaps. His fall to the third round is paying dividends with the Ravens now.The 2013 first-round pick desperately needed to get back on the board after the ugly drop-turned-interception against the Bears in the Hall of Fame Game. He caught two passes on the run and capped the night off with a deep touchdown grab in the fourth quarter. Now for Breshad to continue his play against the second-string defenders against the Colts on August 20.DefenseHe needed an encore performance to be in the conversation of the final 53-man roster, but with his quiet night and Tim Williams rocking it won’t be easy. There are still three more pre-season games left Cheap Hayden Hurst Jersey , though.Yes, in nine snaps both starting outside linebackers notched both a sack and a stop. Judon’sdevelopment from impressive D-II prospect to explosive edge-rusher has been one of the most fun progressions to watch these past few years.It’s no longer just me touting the rookie cornerbacks play in practice, but he’s replicating the skill in games and PFF is talking about him. If only the players above him on the depth chart weren’t also so darn talented, we could see more of him in the regular season.
