Steelers are 10-8-1 as divisional home favorites under Tomlin; they went 8-8 SU in each of last two years, are -27 in turnovers last three years, so there is pressure on them.

Over is 4-1 in Buffalo’s last five road openers, 3-0 in Bears’ last three home openers.

Redskins @ Texans -- Houston went 2-14 LY, losing last 14 games after going 24-10 in previous 34, so they changed coaches, traded for Mallett Sunday, so current QB Fitzpatrick is lame duck starter; Texans won last four home openers, covering three, scoring 30+ points in all four- six of their last nine home openers stayed under total.

Just had an itch to take Vikings +4.

Feel like Cassell is super underrated. Petersen and Patterson huge playmakers.

HUGE Packers fan here. Love Eddie Lacy over 79.5 yards +110. He is going to be an even bigger part of the offense this year, a 3 down back. They are going to emphasize the run to be able to set up play action so Rodgers can beat Seattle tough secondary.

Seems like I am the only one that believes the Packers pull out the upset tonight and it is near blasphemy to predict Seattle to lose at home. What's your thoughts on the Packers chances to win outright?

Looking for others opionions as well

I think they have a great chance, the Seattle crowd/homefield advantage and that defense is just what is scaring everybody. I expect that Packers to have a very balanced offense and do not expect Seattle offense to have that easy of a time with the Packers D. I haven't put any bets on the spread or moneyline though partly because I will be cheering for Packers win obv and don't want to feel like I have some bias. I was leaning to towards Packers +6 and ML+220 but action must have came in and made those worse.

I think its a longshot they win @ Seattle, but it's the nfl anybody can win and that's not  just a saying in this league. Just don't like packers WRs vs that Seattle D. But I think the packers are gonna be pretty good This year IF lacy stays healthy

I'm not sure that they win outright, but I did tease them to +12.5 along with over 39.
