Here is one guys breakdown of a couple of early games this week….

Green Bay at Chicago – Much has been made over the last 5 seasons about Aaron Rodgers, when healthy, being the best QB in the NFL. Sure, he may be the most talented, but the bottom line is, the results have not been there. Here we have the Bears, arguably the better team, at home in a nationally televised game. The Bears are on the improve, while the Packers have been totally reshaped this off-season.

Tennessee at Cleveland – When you play the pickā€™em game to win, you need to find a game or two where you can go against the grain and eliminate a bunch of your competition. This is one of those games. The Browns have more talent, all the headlines, and the expectations going into the season. However, the Titans are not a pushover, and they have guys playing for their jobs. This is the kind of squad that could walk into Cleveland, give the Browns fits, and walk out with a win.
