The beginning of the National Football League season is finally here! After a lengthy hiatus Johnathan Abram Jersey , the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles will host the Atlanta Falcons to kick off the 2018-19 season on Thursday.With the season returning, as does our NFL pick ’em. Without further ado, let’s get this show on the road (home team in bold). Game lines taken from Odds Shark.Philadelphia (-1.5) vs. AtlantaCarson Wentz isn’t back yet, but it seems like he will be ready very soon. In a rematch of last season’s NFC Divisional Round, I’ll take the Eagles at home in front of an emotional Philadelphia crowd.<em>Pick: Philadelphia (-1.5)</em>Baltimore (-7.5) vs. BuffaloThe Ravens’ defense led the NFL in takeaways last season, with 34. The Bills have announced Nathan Peterman as the week one starter at QB… The same Nathan Peterman who threw five interceptions in week 11 last season against the Chargers.<em>Pick: Baltimore (-7.5)</em>Indianapolis (-3) vs. CincinnatiWhat are we going to see from Andrew Luck in his return? That is the million dollar question.<em>Pick: Cincinnati (+3)</em>New England (-6) vs. HoustonThe Patriots lost their home/season opener last season against the Chiefs, and I just don’t see them dropping back-to-back home openers. I like Houston as a team this season, but in this matchup I like Brady & the Pats more.<em>Pick: New England (-6)</em>Jacksonville (-3) vs. New York GiantsJalen Ramsey vs. OBJ. This one should be fun. The Giants win & begin their redemption tour after an embarrassing 2017.<em>Pick: New York Giants (+3)</em>Pittsburgh (-3.5) vs. ClevelandLe’Veon Bell will not play week 1, and it seems like the Pittsburgh locker room is just about done with him. The new-look Browns are a popular underdog pick this season, but they get knocked down a peg in the season opener.<em>Pick: Pittsburgh (-3.5)</em>Minnesota (-6) vs. San FranciscoSimply put, the Vikings are the more talented team.<em>Pick: Minnesota (-6)</em>New Orleans (-9.5) vs. Tampa Bay9.5 points is a lot, but I’ll take the Saints here. They are bound to put up a plethora of points at home and the Bucs won’t be able to catch up.<em>Pick: New Orleans (-9.5)</em>Tennessee (-1) vs. MiamiThis has got to be the season in which Marcus Mariota starts playing up to his potential.<em>Pick: Tennessee (-1)</em>Los Angeles Chargers (-3) vs. Kansas CityThe Bolts are division favorites, but it would be <em>so </em>Chargers to lose their opener with so many expectations. However, I don’t think they do.<em>Pick: Los Angeles Chargers (-3)</em>Carolina (-3) vs. DallasI’m picking the Panthers. Prediction: One player who makes a huge leap this season will be Christian McCaffrey.<em>Pick: Carolina (-3)</em>Denver (-3) vs. SeattleA lot of people are writing Seattle off this year. I think this unit Maxx Crosby Jersey , with a chip on their shoulder, goes into Denver and pulls out a win.<em>Pick: Seattle (+3)</em>Arizona (-1) vs. WashingtonThe real question is, how long until Josh Rosen time in Arizona?<em>Pick: Arizona (-1)</em>Green Bay (-7.5) vs. ChicagoAaron Rodgers. Back. Fresh off a monster extension, this will be his night in Lambeau.<em>Pick: Green Bay (-7.5)</em>Detroit (-7.5) vs. New York JetsSam Darnold marches into Detroit and wins his first NFL start on Monday night, sending the New York media into a frenzy.<em>Pick: New York Jets (+7.5)</em>Los Angeles Rams (-4.5) vs. Oakland The Raiders, from their relationship with the city of Oakland to trading their best player (Khalil Mack), are a mess.<em>Pick: Los Angeles Rams (-4.5)</em> OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP)Don Martindale wondered if he would ever get a second chance to be an NFL defensive coordinator after his one-and-done disaster with the Denver Broncos in 2010. The Broncos went 4-12 that season and gave up more points (29.4 per game) and yards (390.8) than any team in the league. Those miserable numbers, not surprisingly, cost Martindale his job. He latched on with the Baltimore Ravens in 2012 as linebackers coach. After working diligently with several stars, including Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs, Zachary Orr and C.J. Mosley, the 54-year-old Martindale last week was promoted to defensive coordinator. To say he’s pleased to be in charge of an NFL defense again would be a profound understatement. ”Without a doubt Foster Moreau Jersey ,” Martindale said Thursday. ”My family knows it. Everybody knows it. My players know it. I can’t wait.” His performance in Denver eight years ago is hardly worth putting on a resume, but Martindale believes it was a worthwhile experience. ”Even though the stats were what they were, I was really proud with how we played,” he said. ”I’m glad I went through that process because I think that makes me a better coach today. It’s like I tell my guys: You either win or you learn.” Martindale’s new job with the Ravens carries the responsibility of overseeing a unit that has long been among the best in the NFL, thriving under notable leaders such as Marvin Lewis, Rex Ryan, Chuck Pagano and Dean Pees, who retired on Jan. 1. ”I’ve been preparing for this job all my life,” Martindale said. ”It’s very humbling, but I understand the pressure and I look forward to the challenge.” Martindale takes over a defense that this season ranked 12th in net yards allowed, first in takeaways (34) and sixth in fewest points allowed (18.9). He has no plans to revamp the unit or change the philosophy, especially since head coach John Harbaugh stressed the need to retain continuity before launching his search for Pees’ replacement. Martindale will, however, put his own stamp on the unit. ”I think personality-wise Joey Bosa Jersey , and just calls, there’s going to be some things that are the same. And then there are going to be sometimes where I’m going to pressure more,” Martindale said. ”I just think I have a more aggressive personality in calling the game. Sometimes, too aggressive. That’s some of the things I’ve learned from the past.” His most daunting task will be finding a way to make the defense to come up big late in the game. In 2016, a fourth-quarter collapse in Pittsburgh cost Baltimore a playoff berth. This season, a fourth-down touchdown pass in the final minute by Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton bounced the Ravens from the postseason chase. ”Our mantra has always been to finish,” Martindale said. ”We’re close. Obviously, the last two years, it’s been the last play that’s knocked us out of it. We are going to work diligently – all of us – with our package and situational football. ”That’s going to be the next step, I think, that will skyrocket us. That’s the big thing that I see. We were really good. Let’s make it great.” —
