NFL Picks Week 1: Teams That Will Win High-Scoring Games

September 7, 2013   ·     ·   Jump to comments

If Thursday night's season opener is any indication, the NFL's scoring barrage will only grow fiercer this season. Some key Week 1 matchups look prime to produce more shootouts.
The Denver Broncos initiated the season by whooping the Baltimore Ravens, 49-27. Peyton Manning left the Ravens defense and NBC production crew gasping for air with an unrelenting offensive attack. The days of gradually wearing down a defense through the ground are fading, and scoreboards across the country are displaying higher numbers.
Last season, five teams (including the New York Jets) scored 40 or more points during their season opener. The postseason also saw its fair share of offensive explosions, most notably the San Francisco 49ers' 45-31 victory over the Green Bay Packers.
Expect some more crooked numbers this weekend as high-powered NFC offenses square off against one another. Even better, most defenses need some work, so someone in this bunch could easily crack 40 by Sunday's end.
