Week 3 NFL Predictions
In week 1 I went 9-7. In week 2 I went 8-8. My current picks record it 17-15 and am currently one game ahead of Common Sense Football Co-Owner John Langley.
Week 3 picks:
Falcons @ Buccaneers
Reason: The Falcons looked great week 1 against the Saints and terrible against the Bengals. I think the Falcons offense looks like it did week 1 and Tampa Bay can’t keep up.
Chargers @ Bills
Reason: The Chargers just beat the defending champion Seahawks. Rivers is red hot and the Chargers will use the momentum to win a tough road game.
Ravens @ Browns
Reason: If the Browns beat the Ravens, I will buy the hype of the new look Browns. Until then I am picking my team to knock them back down to earth.
Titans @ Bengals
Reason: The Bengals defense will make Tennessee one dimensional and Jake Locker will struggle.
Cowboys @ Rams
Reason: The defensive line of the Rams will frustrate the Cowboys, stifle their running game and get to Tony Romo.
Packers @ Lions
Reason: I think Green Bay is the better coached team with a better quarterback. Give me Rodgers and the Pack in this potential shootout.
Texans @ Giants
Reason: The Cardinals just beat the Giants with a back up quarterback. There is no reason the Texans can’t win as their defense is similar to Arizona’s. The Giants are a wreck right now.
Colts @ Jaguars
Reason: The Colts may be the best 0-2 team I have ever seen. Chuck Pagano will have his team ready.
Vikings @ Saints
Reason: I doubt Sean Payton will allow his team to lose two games in a row to opponents they should beat.
Raiders @ Patriots
Reason: This is self explanatory right?
Redskins @ Eagles
Reason: After an impressive come from behind win against the Colts, how can I pick them to lose to the Skins?
Cardinals @ 49ers
Reason: The 49ers know they need to win this game. They will play with urgency.
Broncos @ Seahawks
Reason: Its hard to ignore the Super Bowl result from last year when making this pick.
Chiefs @ Dolphins
Reason: Kansas City kept up with Denver despite losing. I think they may dominate the Dolphins.
Steelers @ Panthers
Reason: The Panthers have been a surprise. The Steelers have been unimpressive.
Bears @ Jets
Reason: Jets are a tough team at home.
