NFL Picks Week 1: Chris Simms’ Game-by-Game Picks

You probably know me as Chris Simms, Bleacher Report NFL analyst and former quarterback. 
But when kickoff approaches and it's time to pick a winner and a loser? That's when people around the Bleacher Report office start calling me "The Oracle."

Is the team physical?
