Gridiron Guru: Which S-T Sports staffer has the best NFL game

Most pick 'em contests begin with Week 1 of the NFL season. But what does that get you? After last week, misses thanks to the injury to Tom Brady and poor performances by the Chargers and Colts.

Our sports geniuses at the Daily Ticket have decided to begin their pick 'em contest with Week 2. Follow their standings through the NFL season and see who reigns supreme.

New England Patriots at New York Jets (-2)


David Thomas, "Expert" Picker/Humor Columnist:

Brett Favre has had more starts at quarterback for the Jets than the Patriots’ Matt Cassel has had since he left high school.

Pick:

Jets 17-10.

Keeli Garza: Patriots, 17-14

Scooter Hendon: Patriots, 16-13

Scott McCoy: Patriots, 20-17

Seth Schrock: Patriots, 21-20

San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks (-7)


Scott McCoy, Fantasy Sports "Genius"/Resident Hater:

Seattle has no healthy receivers but that shouldn't be a problem against San Francisco. The 49ers don't have any decent quarterbacks. And their receivers aren't too good either.

Pick:

Seahawks, 24-10

Keeli Garza: Seahawks, 27-7

Scooter Hendon: 49ers, 28-24

Seth Schrock: 49ers, 14-10

David Thomas: Seahawks, 28-13

Indianapolis Colts at Minnesota Vikings (+1.5)


Keeli Garza, S-T Sports webmaster/Token Girl:

How does Colts QB Peyton Manning get over a loss? He watches film. A lot of film. Look for Peyton's chair in the Colts' filmroom to have a permanent butt-mark after a second-straight loss this week.

Pick:

Vikings 21, Colts 20

Scooter Hendon: Colts, 30-20

Scott McCoy: Colts, 21-17

Seth Schrock: Vikings, 34-21

David Thomas: Colts, 27-23

New Orleans Saints at Washington Redskins (pick)


Scooter Hendon, Stats Geek/NFL Idiot:

This week I'm picking all cities that have to deal with hurricanes on a yearly basis. New Orleans, welcome to a win via karmic gift from my Southeast Texas brethren.

Pick:

Saints, 35-24

Keeli Garza: Saints, 21-10

Scott McCoy: Saints 31-13

Seth Schrock: Saints, 38-17

David Thomas: Saints, 20-13

Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys (-7)


Seth Schrock: NFL "Expert"/Human

The Eagles looked great last week in their 38-3 win over the Colorado State Rams and head to ... oh, wait a minute, I'm now being told that was the

St. Louis

Rams. Sorry about that, I wasn't able to tell the difference. I think this one will be closer to the 38-17 beating the Cowboys put on the Eagles last November than the 10-6 upset the Eagles pulled last December.

Pick:

Cowboys, 31-21

Keeli Garza: Cowboys, 31-17

Scooter Hendon: Cowboys, 24-21

Scott McCoy: Cowboys, 27-14

David Thomas: Cowboys, 31-17
