Each week we’ll take a look at the TV genius class predictions from the pregame shows, and grade how they matched up with what actually happened. Are these guys truly “experts?” You decide:

Grading Scale:
A – Picked the winner, and told us how and why.
B – Picked the winner, and was more right than wrong in the analysis.
C – Picked the winner and offered no commentary
D – Picked the winner, but was dead wrong in the analysis; or picked wrong, but offered valid insights.
F – Picked wrong, and either didn’t tell us why or booted the analysis.

Here’s what actually happened Sunday night:

Both defenses played well enough to win. In the end the Dallas D dropped two picks and the KC D forced two fumbles. Those big plays were the difference and Kansas City’s pro bowl punter pinned the ‘Boys back all day, as the Chiefs moved to 2-0 with a 17-16 victory.

Though I don’t carry the mantle of “expert,” nor the fame and six-figure salary, in the interest of fairness here’s my own pre-game prediction, which you can see here:

Alex Smith doesn’t have the big arm to exploit coverage breakdowns, so Kiffin’s bend-but-don’t-break defense forces a field goal fest. Callahan’s offense is still a few weeks away from clicking on all cylinders. This game comes down to turnovers and special teams; I’ll go with the hot hand in both: Cowboys win 27-19.

Loser! So let’s grade the other winners and losers.
