Welcome back to Around The NFL's weekly picks. This season will be a little different. We'll have all our picks as usual and include our Duracell Power Picks below them. That's the pick of the week we feel most confident in. (No easy calls allowed.)

Gregg Rosenthal's power pick: Ravens over Buccaneers. Tampa Bay has played far better the past two weeks, but Baltimore is quietly one of the most complete teams in the league.

Marc Sessler's Power Pick: Packers over Dolphins. I like to keep things simple. This is simple.

Chris Wesseling's Pick: Packers over Dolphins. Nobody has played better than Green Bay since Aaron Rodgers told the football world to R-E-L-A-X. The Packers are the better team, now clicking on all cylinders.

Dan Hanzus' pick: Cardinals over Redskins. Arizona is 8-2 at home in the Bruce Arians era. Carson Palmer could be back, and even if he isn't, Drew Stanton can adequately hold things down. Also considered: The Redskins aren't very good at football.

Kevin Patra's power pick: Packers over Dolphins. Is there a better place to R-E-L-A-X than Miami?
