Coming off rough opening weekend, Pro Picks needs to rebound

Must read

Opening week of the NFL season often includes upsets (Steelers, Dolphins), over-the-top achievements (Raiders, Eagles) and underwhelming performances (Packers, Titans). Finding the correct ones is a major challenge for prognosticators.

Thus, a rugged start for Pro Picks.

Time to rally beginning with Thursday night’s not particularly stellar matchup between the New York Giants and the Washington Football Team.

Both of these NFC East occupants were beaten at home by AFC West opponents, the Giants falling without much of a fight to Denver, and Washington offering a bit more in losing to the Chargers. Of course, in their division, where something around .500 might mean a title, how much can be expected from either club?

There are some intriguing angles, though. Washington lost veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick last Sunday to a hip injury, so Taylor Heinicke goes at quarterback. He brings high energy, which he first displayed last January.
