NFL Week 1 Preview
Sunday 4:30 PM ET
PANTHERS AT BUCCANEERS
Cam Newton’s fractured back will be the story going into this NFC South matchup. If he plays, which HC Ron Rivera says he will, the Buccaneers much improved defense will be ready. Michael Johnson and Gerald McCoy will be testing the Panthers offensive line early on and without Jordan Gross holding down the blindside, Carolina will be forced to go through some growing pains.
Buccaneers 27 Panthers 17
49ERS AT COWBOYS
The 49ers are being forced to dig deep into the depth chart to form a starting lineup with injuries and suspensions building up and their offense took a few weeks last year to gel, as it looks like it may this season after their preseason performance. The Cowboys know their defense is lacking able bodies and come out ready to compensate offensively. Defense is optional in this NFC Matchup.
UPSET SPECIAL: Cowboys 38 49ers 35

COLTS AT BRONCOS
The NFL provided a great matchup for the first SNF game of the year. Peyton Manning is getting his revenge on the Colts after losing in his 2013 homecoming. The Broncos defense is loaded and should be ready for their AFC Championship preview: 2014 Predictions
MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 8TH
7:10 pm ET GIANTS AT LIONS
The Giants offense looked about as awful as a team that went 5-0 in the preseason can go and the Lions look like they are trying to be the most explosive offense in NFL history by their offseason moves. The Lions defensive line will make enough plays against a poor offensive line for the Giants to see at least 3 solid #ManningFace’s. It’s a good thing we have a doubleheader on Monday Night, because this one if going to leave fans unsatisfied.
Lions 35 Giants 16
10:20 pm ET CHARGERS AT CARDINALS
The Chargers are going to have one of the better offenses in 2014 and the Cardinals defense should be solid. The injuries to the Cardinals defense become visible in this random AFC-NFC matchup to start the season, but the Carson Palmer-Larry Fitzgerald connection is going to be much improved in their 2nd year together and win a wild one in the desert.
Cardinals 28 Chargers 27
