NFL Picks Week 1: Eagles Vs. Browns

Analysts covering the NFL rarely agree, but they seem fairly certain that the Philadelphia Eagles will beat the Cleveland Browns in week one at 1 p.m. Sunday.

All fourteen experts picking games for ESPN went with the Eagles. All eight analysts for CBS Sports chose Philadelphia and all three picking for Yahoo! Sports think the Eagles will prevail.

The Browns are coming off a 4-12 season and will be led by a rookie quarterback in Brandon Weeden. Fellow rookie first round pick, running back Trent Richardson, is still recovering from surgery and it's unclear how much he'll be able to contribute.

The Eagles, a team that fell short of expectations after many predicted they'd be a Super Bowl team last season, finished 8-8, one game out of first place in the NFC East.
