Let's keep this going! Get your picks in and don't forget to include your total!

Eagles vs Chiefs: Chiefs... Andy Reid gets revenge on his former team.

Bengals vs Packers: Packers... Bengals fall after Monday Night hangover.

Cowboys vs Rams: Cowboys... Rams are improving, but not quite there yet.

Titans vs Chargers: Chargers.... Look for this one to come down to the wire.

Vikings vs Browns: Browns... Maybe my homerism is showing, but something has to give. Browns get Gordon after 2 game suspension. Browns defense can shut down the run, but can they shut down the pass?

Patriots vs Buccaneers: Patriots... This one too will be closer than we think. New England lacks the offensive fire power of years past.

Saints vs Cardinals: Saints... Are the Saints for real? Yes.

Redskins vs Lions: Lions... Looks like RGIII is in the start of a Sophmore jinx.

Panthers vs Giants: Giants...The Giants need this one in order to avoid 0-3.

Ravens vs Texans: Texans... The Texans have the offense, and the Ravens don't.

Dolphins vs Falcons: Falcons... Dolphins suffer first loss after a suprising 2-0 start.

Jets vs Bills: Bills... No proven veteran QB... No problem.

49ers vs Colts: 49ers... Could Andrew Luck be suffering from a Sophmore Jinx as well? At least in this game he will be.

Seahawks vs Jaguars: Seahawks.... Being that the Seahawks once again have to travel clear across the country, could it be possible that the Jags pull the upset? Nope.

Steelers vs Bears: Bears... Ruh-Roh REORGE!!! Looks like troubling times in DA BURGH, as DA BEARS send the "STILLERS" to 0-3!

Broncos VA Raiders: Broncos... Manning is just making it look too easy.

#1brownsfan, I almost took the Browns. A team that can play defense the way they do should be in every game. I just don't have any confidence in their offense. That game really can go either way, just like so many others this week.

Like I said. Something has to give. The city of Cleveland will be on the verge of mutiny if the Browns start off at 0-3 again! Furthermore, Christian Ponder isn't exactly Tom Brady, or Aaron Rogers. The Vikings do have Adrian Peterson, but so far the Browns have been good at shutting down the run. I just hope that the Browns secondary can stop the pass. That is the glaring weakness on defense right now! As for the offense, they're not sure if Weeden can go (and I'm OK with that) and we could see Campbell (God I hope not) or Brian Hoyer (which I'd prefer). I hope they go with Hoyer, because this team is young, as is he. Why not let the youngsters gell together? I am starting to have concerns as to whether Trent Richardson has what it takes to carry the load. The knock on him is too much dancing around and the inability to hit the hole. As the game goes on he needs to be able to kick it up a notch, and grind it out.

I would take the Browns because stopping what pass? Ponder isn't the most consistent QB, AP is their offense usually.

Eagles/Chiefs - Chiefs

Bengals/Packers - Packers Go Pack Go!

Cowboys/Rams - Rams

Titans/Chargers - Titans

Vikings/Browns - Browns

Patriots/Buccaneers - Patriots

Saints/Cardinals - Saints

Redskins/Lions - Lions

Panthers/Giants - Giants

Ravens/Texans - Texans

Dolphins/Falcons - Falcons

Jets/Bills - Bills

49ers/Colts - Colts

Seahawks/Jaguars - Seahawks

Steelers/Bears - Steelers

Broncos/Raiders - Broncos

I made some unusual picks, trying to maintain my 8-8 status! Definitely not as technical as you guys! No secret I'm 16-16 overall!

Good news: Speedy WR Josh Gordon is back from suspension.
Bad news: Brown's QB Weeden might not even play ... they're on the road and may be starting Jason Campbell/Brian Hoyer.
