16 Free Picks for Week 1 of 2011-2012 NFL season
The bold teams are the winners. The teams with point spreads are my picks against the spread. The last number is my projected score for the game. That should give readers an idea for what I think the total of the game will be. Key injuries don't necessarily mean that the player won't play.  Keep yourself updated with injuries throughout the week. Here are injury reports from covers.com.
