NFL Week 1 – Survivor Pool Pick (2012)

Posted by in NFL Survivor Pool Picks on September 5th, 2012 | Comment »

Week 1 Survivor Pool PickWe posted potential survivor pool picks for the entire 2012 football season earlier.

My original survivor pool pick was New Orleans Saints over Washington Redskins.  The reason I picked the Saints was because there’s simply no other home game until the play Bucs in December which should be an easy win for them. I changed my picked to the Houston Texans over the Miami Dolphins. I still think the Saints will win this one, but the Redskins may put up a fight. With the Saints coaches suspended the Saints missing their best two defensive players in Jonathan Vilma and Will Smith, there was just too much risk with this pick. RGIII can also come in and have a Cam Newton-like debut.

Texans over the Dolphins is the much safer play this week. We all know the Dolphins offense will struggle to come up with points this season and the Texans were the 3rd best defense in the league last year. Look for the Dophins to be completely shut down while the Texans offense takes care of business to book the win. The Texans are the largest favorites this week as 12-point favorites.

Other potential options for you are the Chicago Bears over the Indianapolis Colts, Detroit Lions over the St. Louis Rams, or Philadelphia Eagles over the Cleveland Browns. They’re all winners in my book.

Here is my full analysis for the Texans vs. Dolphins game. My prediction in this one is Texans 24 – Dolphins 10.  Good luck everyone.
