Free Week 1 NFL Pre-Season Predictions

NFL Preseason Week One Preview/Picks

As we head into the first full week of the 2010 NFL preseason there are some interesting position battles heating up on all 32 NFL teams.

There are a couple of rookies trying to fight their way into the starting lineup and some veterans who will need to step it up just to keep their jobs.

Let’s take a look at some of the more intriguing match ups where a solid performance this week could go a long way toward figuring out the starting rosters for opening day.

Thursday, Aug 12th 8:30 P.M. (ET)
Week 1 Preseason Carolina @ Baltimore (-3)
Week 1 Preseason Over/Under Line 34

With former Carolina starting quarterback Jake Delhomme now in Cleveland, the Panthers will go with Matt Moore as their No.1 guy heading into the 2010 season. Moore, who is in his fourth season in the league, started five games for Carolina in 2009. He threw for 1,053 yards completing 61.6 percent of his passes. He passed for eight TD’s and only had two picked off, ending the year with a rating of 98.5.

As much as Carolina thinks that Moore is extremely capable of leading the offense, the main subplot in this game will be the play the Panther’s second round pick; former Notre Dame quarterback Jimmy Clausen, who has made no bones about wanting to compete for the starting spot.

Carolina is 6-1 in Week 1 of the preseason over the last seven years and despite the fact it does not really mean anything, will once again be looking to start off with a win to get things going in the right direction.

The Pick-Carolina and UNDER

Saturday, Aug 14th 8 P.M. (ET)
Week 1 Preseason Cleveland @ Green Bay (-2.5)
Week 1 Preseason Over/Under Line 34

Mike Holmgren returns to Green Bay as Cleveland’s new team president, after taking over the role at the end of last season. With numerous personnel moves already in place, Holmgren has wasted little time in putting his mark on this team. Jake Delhomme is the Browns new starting quarterback after Derek Anderson was released and Brady Quinn was traded.

While first round draft pick CB Joe Haden and second round pick FS T.J Ward should add a spark to the Brown’s defense, all eyes will be on third round pick QB Colt McCoy when he gets his chance to lead the offense.

Even though the starters will only play a series or two and it is preseason, Green Bay is a much deeper team than Cleveland to lose at home.

The Pick- Green Bay and UNDER.

Saturday, Aug 14th 9 P.M. (ET)
Week 1 Preseason Chicago @ San Diego (-3)
Week 1 Preseason Over/Under Line 34

When Chicago traded quarterback Kyle Orton to Denver as part of the deal to land Jay Cutler, the Bears had hoped they had finally solved their problem at that position. Cutler’s numbers last season spoke for themselves as he led the league in interceptions with 26. Now the Bears are hoping that bringing in Mike Martz as their new offensive coordinator will solve their problems with Cutler and their offense.

Do not be surprised if the first team Chicago offense gets a little more playing time than expected as they try and work out the kinks of Martz’s offensive scheme.

At this point San Diego has nothing to prove, but Chicago does.

The Pick – Chicago and OVER.
