’21 NFL Pick’Em Week 1

After taking the 2020 NFL season off, we returned to the Pick’em game with two things in mind. The first one is to avoid missing a whole week’s worth of picks (happens every season), and then contend for the best record in our league.

Each week we will break down our picks, showcase where we went right and where we wrong, as well as provide some off beat commentary to keep you engaged as you browse our pick selections.
