Justin: David Wilson @ Dallas Cowboys
David Wilson was the recipient of a lot of hype over the offseason with the departure of Ahmad Bradshaw. Then, the hype started to fade as it became clear that Andre Brown would shoulder most of the goal-line carries. But Brown broke his leg in the fourth preseason game and the Giants placed him on Injured Reserve, leaving the bulk of the running game to Wilson.

In addition to running the football, Wilson will also handle the kick-return duties. Look for Wilson to explode onto the scene against the rival Dallas Cowboys in Week 1 and pay dividends for all the owners who waited a few rounds to nab their second running back.


David: Michael Vick @ Washington Redskins
The last time Michael Vick played a MNF game at Washington, he racked up 333 passing yards, four passing touchdowns, 80 rushing yards and two touchdowns. Granted, that was his magical 2010 season in which he won comeback player of the year, but there’s no denying the immense potential against a Redskins secondary that struggled throughout 2012.

Chip Kelly will want to strike quickly and often. He’ll have plenty of tricks up his sleeve in this high-octane offense.


Bret: T.Y. Hilton vs. Oakland Raiders
The Oakland Raiders are a hot mess.  There could be several Colts that reach double digit points against the Raiders Sunday.  T.Y. Hilton is the most talented wide receiver on the Colts roster.  He may be third behind Reggie Wayne and Darrius Heyward-Bey, but he will get plenty of looks that equate to big plays in this game.
