Week 1 NFL Picks Against a 6-Year-Old

We are back!  It has been a while since we've taken to this blog, but with football season around the corner, it is time to get back to our annual tradition of picking football games against a little kid.

The kid is now 6 (or at least he will be next week), and he is learning more and more about sports.  He knows if Jeff Baker or David Murphy should be playing left field based on which hand the starting pitcher throws with, and he can tell who is batting based on their stance.  But, football is a different story.  He's still learning the game.

To recap, there will be four of us competing: me, the kid, JDaddy, and Uncle J.  The first year we did this, the kid won.  Last year, it was yours truly that blew away the competition.  But the kid was 1 win away from a .500 finish.  Not too bad and exactly where you would expect him to finish considering his picks are pretty much random.

After the jump, find out our 2013 Week 1 Picks
