The NFL season kicks off Thursday night with a matchup featuring the Kansas City Chiefs vs. Detroit Lions. The anticipation is high for an eventful Week 1. Teams will make final adjustments as we close out the rest of the business week.
Before the countdown to the regular season ends, here are a few bold Week 1 predictions, including some fantasy football projections to monitor.
Bold NFL Week 1 Fantasy Football Stat Prediction #5:
Jacksonville Jaguars defeat Indianapolis Colts by 14+ points
This year would be the perfect time for Press Taylor’s offense to strike. Their divisional rivals are strong but show signs of a necessary rebuilding phase. The Indianapolis Colts will enter Week 1 with a lot to prove. They’ll play without Jonathan Taylor and a rookie quarterback under center. If the Colts get behind on the scoreboard, Anthony Richard will look to stretch the field. A lack of experience could result in turnovers – giving Jacksonville a comfortable lead.
