Week 1 NFL Picks: Cowboys Unanimous Favorites Over Giants

Ronald Martinez

The BTB writers weigh in with their picks for the Week 1 games.

The Cowboys will kick off the 2013 NFL season on Sunday night, which means it's time for us to kick off our time-honored BTB tradition of having the front-page writers embarrass themselves publicly by picking their winners for each NFL weekend. Each week, the BTB front page writers will publish their straight-up picks for each game.

Here at BTB, we're very objective about our lack of objectivity. Most of us pick the Cowboys to win every game regardless of who the opponent is, though that's not really an issue this week - the Cowboys are our unanimous favorites against the Giants, and for good reason: the Cowboys have an NFL best .673 (35-17-1) winning percentage in season openers.

Over the last three seasons, we've had three different winners in our contest:

2010 - rabblerousr: .652 (167-89)
2011 - OCC: .691 (177-79)
2012 - KD Drummond: .684 (175-81)

Who do you think will take the crown this year?

Below are our Week 1, 2013 picks. Agree, Disagree? Let us know about it in the comments section.
