is not going the way that wide receiver Jarvis Landry imagined.Landry was acquired in an off-season trade with the Miami Dolphins and quickly signed to a five-year contract extension that included $47 million in guaranteed money. While that may seem like a lot of money for a player coming off a season where he averaged just 8.8 yards per reception [url=https://www.brownsfanshop.com/Chris-Hubbard-Jersey]Chris Hubbard Color Rush Jersey[/url] , there was some excitement because Landry caught 400 passes in his first four seasons in the league.The belief among many Browns fans was that Landry would flourish in Cleveland after being “misused” with the Dolphins.That isn’t how the season has played out for Landry, however, even though he does lead the Browns in receptions (60) and receiving yards (630) heading into Sunday’s road game against the Houston Texans. (Although his catch rate of 54 percent is hard to understand for a player that had good hands in Miami.)At his current pace, Landry will finish the year with 87 receptions (his lowest total since his rookie season in 2014), 916 receiving yards (the third time in his five NFL seasons where he will be below 1,000 yards) and just three touchdowns (the lowest of his NFL career).It would be understandable if Landry was discouraged by the individual results, but that does not seem to be the case for the simple reason that the Browns are slowly learning how to win games. As Landry explained to clevelandbrowns.com:Landry may not be living up to the hype that was created, through no fault of his own, after he arrived from Miami. But that doesn’t necessarily mean he is having a bad season. If he hits those projected numbers for the season [url=https://www.brownsfanshop.com/Seth-Devalve-Jersey]https://www.brownsfanshop.com/Seth-Devalve-Jersey[/url] , Landry’s 87 receptions would tie him with Josh Gordon (2013) for the second-most in a single season in franchise history. And if Landry hits 916 receiving yards, that would land him just outside the top 20 for a single season in franchise history and make him just the 13th different wide receiver in franchise history to top 900 yards in a single season.Landry may not be having the type of season that some fans believed he would.But the season he is having might end up being not that bad. The beginning of the National Football League season is finally here! After a lengthy hiatus, the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles will host the Atlanta Falcons to kick off the 2018-19 season on Thursday.With the season returning, as does our NFL pick ’em. Without further ado, let’s get this show on the road (home team in bold). Game lines taken from Odds Shark.Philadelphia (-1.5) vs. AtlantaCarson Wentz isn’t back yet, but it seems like he will be ready very soon. In a rematch of last season’s NFC Divisional Round, I’ll take the Eagles at home in front of an emotional Philadelphia crowd.<em>Pick: Philadelphia (-1.5)</em>Baltimore (-7.5) vs. BuffaloThe Ravens’ defense led the NFL in takeaways last season, with 34. The Bills have announced Nathan Peterman as the week one starter at QB… The same Nathan Peterman who threw five interceptions in week 11 last season against the Chargers.<em>Pick: Baltimore (-7.5)</em>Indianapolis (-3) vs. CincinnatiWhat are we going to see from Andrew Luck in his return? That is the million dollar question.<em>Pick: Cincinnati (+3)</em>New England (-6) vs. HoustonThe Patriots lost their home/season opener last season against the Chiefs, and I just don’t see them dropping back-to-back home openers. I like Houston as a team this season [url=https://www.brownsfanshop.com/Kevin-Zeitler-Jersey]Kevin Zeitler Jersey[/url] , but in this matchup I like Brady & the Pats more.<em>Pick: New England (-6)</em>Jacksonville (-3) vs. New York GiantsJalen Ramsey vs. OBJ. This one should be fun. The Giants win & begin their redemption tour after an embarrassing 2017.<em>Pick: New York Giants (+3)</em>Pittsburgh (-3.5) vs. ClevelandLe’Veon Bell will not play week 1, and it seems like the Pittsburgh locker room is just about done with him. The new-look Browns are a popular underdog pick this season, but they get knocked down a peg in the season opener.<em>Pick: Pittsburgh (-3.5)</em>Minnesota (-6) vs. San FranciscoSimply put, the Vikings are the more talented team.<em>Pick: Minnesota (-6)</em>New Orleans (-9.5) vs. Tampa Bay9.5 points is a lot, but I’ll take the Saints here. They are bound to put up a plethora of points at home and the Bucs won’t be able to catch up.<em>Pick: New Orleans (-9.5)</em>Tennessee (-1) vs. MiamiThis has got to be the season in which Marcus Mariota starts playing up to his potential.<em>Pick: Tennessee (-1)</em>Los Angeles Chargers (-3) vs. Kansas CityThe Bolts are division favorites, but it would be <em>so </em>Chargers to lose their opener with so many expectations. However, I don’t think they do.<em>Pick: Los Angeles Chargers (-3)</em>Carolina (-3) vs. DallasI’m picking the Panthers. Prediction: One player who makes a huge leap this season will be Christian McCaffrey.<em>Pick: Carolina (-3)</em>Denver (-3) vs. SeattleA lot of people are writing Seattle off this year. I think this unit, with a chip on their shoulder, goes into Denver and pulls out a win.<em>Pick: Seattle (+3)</em>Arizona (-1) vs. WashingtonThe real question is [url=https://www.brownsfanshop.com/Joel-Bitonio-Jersey]Joel Bitonio Color Rush Jersey[/url] , how long until Josh Rosen time in Arizona?<em>Pick: Arizona (-1)</em>Green Bay (-7.5) vs. ChicagoAaron Rodgers. Back. Fresh off a monster extension, this will be his night in Lambeau.<em>Pick: Green Bay (-7.5)</em>Detroit (-7.5) vs. New York JetsSam Darnold marches into Detroit and wins his first NFL start on Monday night, sending the New York media into a frenzy.<em>Pick: New York Jets (+7.5)</em>Los Angeles Rams (-4.5) vs. Oakland The Raiders, from their relationship with the city of Oakland to trading their best player (Khalil Mack), are a mess.<em>Pick: Los Angeles Rams (-4.5)</em>
