NFL Week 3 Picks

NFL Week 3 Picks

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Atlanta Falcons
-Falcons were able to win at home versus the Saints…I think they can handle the Bucs.

Atlanta 28 Tampa Bay 17

Oakland Raiders at New England Patriots
-The Patriots are going up against the worst team in the NFL in their season opener.  Do you need more?

New England 38 Oakland 17

San Diego Chargers at Buffalo Bills
-Tough game to pick being that it is in Buffalo, but San Diego is coming in off a massive win over the defending champs

San Diego 24 Buffalo 21

Tennessee Titans at Cincinnati Bengals
-Bengals dominated the Falcons at home WITHOUT AJ Green; I think they can handle the Titans

Cincinnati 31 Tennessee 21

Baltimore Ravens at Cleveland Browns
-Browns coming off a big win against the Saints, and I think they can carry over that momentum.  Division rivalry game that will be incredibly fun to watch

Cleveland 20 Baltimore 17

Dallas Cowboys at St. Louis Rams
-Murray is running the ball like crazy for the Cowboys, and if he continues, then Dallas can continue winning

Dallas 24 St. Louis 14

Green Bay Packers at Detroit Lions
-The Packers had to come from behind against the Jets, and Detroit was exposed by the Panthers defense.  This is going to be a high flying affair, and I’m gonna go with the QB edge in Green Bay

Green Bay 45 Detroit 35

Indianapolis Colts at Jacksonville Jaguars
-The Colts are my LOCK OF THE WEEK (I know the Saints didn’t win last week…but who saw them starting out at 0-2)

Indianapolis 31 Jacksonville 14

San Francisco 49ers at Arizona Cardinals
-Interesting game.  The 49ers will need to rely on Colin Kaepernick with the Cardinals stout rushing defense.

San Francisco 20 Arizona 17

Denver Broncos at Seattle Seahawks
-While the game will be much better than the Super Bowl, I still can’t pick against the Seahawks at home, specially coming off a loss.

Seattle 27 Denver 24

Kansas City Chiefs at Miami Dolphins
-Jamaal Charles is banged up, and for some reason my gut tells me the Dolphins will stop the Chiefs offense just enough.

Miami 21 Kansas City 20

Pittsburgh Steelers at Carolina Panthers
-Carolina’s defense was able to shut down the Detroit Lions, and Pittsburgh does not have nearly as many dynamic playmakers on the offensive side.

Carolina 24 Pittsburgh 13

Chicago Bears at New York Jets
-The Jets secondary got torched by Aaron Rodgers, so if the Bears wide receivers do play, New York would be in big trouble

Chicago 24 New York 21

Last Week: 4 – 12 (I know that’s horrible)
Overall: 14 – 18
