Every year, around week 13, I get so sick of my picks. They become a nightmare of an obligation, and I eventually post a half-assed parade of picks where I don’t both to explain a single game. SO THIS YEAR, I BROKE THE CODE. I’m literally just posting my picks! I’m not going to explain a single one of them.
Fight me in the street, algorithm.

So much for my “lock of the week” nonsense. My lock went 0-1 to start the season! Can’t imagine that’s a promising start. Having said that, my lock of the week is the Kansas City Chiefs coming into knockoff Arrowhead and crushing the Baltimore Ravens. That offensive line surrendered the highest pass rush win rate in the entire league to the Las Vegas Raiders, and gave up over 500 yards of offense.
Games I feel iffy about? Bills/Dolphins could be funky, depending which Josh Allen shows up. The Eagles could upset the 49ers. I might be putting too much faith in the Chicago Bears, and hey, hi, ya never know, maybe the Raiders defense is legit, and they pull off the upset in Pittsburgh.
