The NFL regular season kicked off with our second season of tracking NFL Handicappers. Jason Logan (Covers) and Larry Hartstein (Sportsline) led the way in the first week as both registered perfect 3-0 records against the spread. Another pair of Sportsline handicappers, Hank Goldberg (4-1) and Mike Tierney (5-2) also had strong showings.
