UPDATE (Sunday): Big choke job by SD in the 2nd half today.  Give NY credit for making the plays when they had to, but it's not often Rivers plays that bad in a half.  HOU took care of business rather easily for a 1-1 week on sides.  Looking over most of the scores in the early games, I feel pretty good about taking a pass on most of them. There was a lot of ugly matchups and awful football going on today.

Each week I'll keep an eye on how the public and the pros are doing with their top picks and review what went wrong and what went right as the season unfolds.  The picks below are in order from the most selected to least selected among the top 5.
