Taylor’s Tuesday Top 25, College and Pro Pick
The Carolina Panthers really, really, really need to beat the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. The franchise hasn’t had a winning record at any point since the 2008 season, their 6-12 in openers, and have only made the playoffs once after losing the first game. More importantly, Ron Rivera and Cam Newton have never taken the field with a winning record. Fine, the first game isn’t a must win, but its as close as it gets.
Den, Mia, NE, Cincy, Indy, KC, Pit, Carolina, Det, Saints, Bucs, GB, Rams, Dallas, Skins, and Houston.
That might’ve been Clemson’s biggest victory in several decades. They deserve to be ranked 4th in the country. They have one of the best on field leaders in America in Tajh Boyd, and great skill players. But after watching Jameis Winston and FSU, the Tigers will have to play even better to beat the Noles.
Wake +2.5, Fla -3, UNC (haven’t seen a line), Clem, VT, Ducks -21.5, Md, Duke -5.5, N’western, NCSU, ECU -20.5, Cocks +3, Mich -3.5.
