Last week’s upsets and injuries proves the adage that on any given Sunday any team can win. But that doesn’t stop us from coming up with the best picks for Week 3’s NFL games.
Cincinnati at Baltimore—Bengals: The Ravens have been struggling tremendously. The Bengals on the other hand look about as good as an Andy Dalton-led team can.
New Orleans at Carolina—Panthers: Drew Brees is out and the Saints couldn’t win with him in the first place.
Tampa Bay at Houston—Houston: As much as I don’t trust Brian Hoyer, the Texans can’t go on losing and being horrible on defense forever. Look for them to bounce back against the rookie Winston.
Jacksonville at New England—Patriots: The Jaguars are traveling to New England. This one doesn’t even need an explanation.
Philadelphia at New York (J) —Jets: The Jets actually look good. The Eagles do not. Amazing to think that a Ryan Fitzpatrick team may be a contender.
Oakland at Cleveland—Browns: This is a tough call. Both teams (surprisingly) look decent, but I like Johnny Manziel to come off the win fired up and squeeze out another one at home.
Atlanta at Dallas—Falcons: The Cowboys are without Dez Bryant or Tony Romo. Let the woes in Dallas begin.
Indianapolis at Tennessee—Colts: As much as I don’t want to pick the Colts after they made me wrong last week, I don’t see them starting 0-3 against a weak Titans team.
San Diego at Minnesota—Chargers: The Chargers are hot right now. The Vikings still need to get things going. This game could be close, especially if Adrian Peterson really comes to play.
Pittsburgh at St. Louis—Steelers: The Rams looked absolutely pitiful against the Washington Redskins of all teams. The Steelers on the other hand look like very legitimate contenders. Should be an easy win.
San Francisco at Arizona—Cardinals: The 49ers were absolutely embarrassed this past week after a solid victory over the Vikings. The Cardinals should have no problem tearing them down and staying on top that division.
Chicago at Seattle—Seahawks: Jay Cutler would hurt himself after throwing a pick-six. Jimmy Clausen may be an improvement (or may not be), but either way this game is the perfect chance for the Seahawks’ defense to get back in form.
Buffalo at Miami—Bills: The Bills defense was victim of a great offense and turnovers last week. Look for them to bounce back against a demoralized Dolphins squad that couldn’t even stop the Jaguars.
