Staff Picks: Bengals, Texans, Dolphins, Broncos and Panthers
Staff Picks: Bengals, Texans, Dolphins, Broncos and Panthers

This article is part of our Staff Picks series.

This is the 19th year of Staff Picks. Erickson, Pianowski and I have been here since the inception in 2000 and had you told me in 2006 - when I had won or tied for the title five out of the first seven years - that I wouldn't win again through 2017, I probably would have shut it down. But here we are.

For some reason, Week 1 always seems to be our groupthink week. Last year we had nine unanimous picks, and this year five: the Bengals, Texans, Dolphins, Broncos and Panthers. Both Stopa and I have the Bengals as our best bets.
