49ers @ Cardinals
Chargers @ Vikings
Steelers @ Rams
Jaguars @ Patriots
Bengals @ Ravens
Raiders @ Browns
Colts @ Titans
Bears @ Seahawks

Washington at New York- The Giants cannot start 0-3. Big Blue pulls it off.

Atlanta at Dallas- My early prediction was that the Cowboys would win the NFC East, but with Romo gone for several weeks, Weeden the starter and Dez Bryant gone for the year, things are going to get a little dicey in Big D.

Indianapolis at Tennessee- With the splash that the Colts made in free agency, they need this one badly. Marriotta proved he will be damn good NFL QB, but he will still go through some growing pains. Indy gets a much needed win.

Oakland at Cleveland- Can you believe one of these two teams after this game will be 2-1? The Raiders have some talent, and yes they did beat the Ravens at home, but suffer a setback and lose in a squeaker. Look for a lot of mistakes from both teams on both sides of the ball.

Cincinnati at Baltimore- Home sweet home for the Ravens, and a much needed win.

Jacksonville at New England- If Tom Brady through for over 400 yards last week against what was perceived to be one of the leagues toughest defenses in Buffalo, I hate to see what he is going to do to the Jags.

New Orleans at Carolina- It appears that the Saints are going back to being the Aints!

Philadelphia at New York- Don't look now, but here come the Jets as they soar to 3-0.

Tampa Bay at Houston- JJ Watt will be teeing off on Winston all afternoon.

San Diego at Minnesota- I'm definitely torn on this one, but the Bolts have the more experienced QB in Phillip Rivers, and I have to give them the edge.

Pittsburgh at St. Louis- As much as I'd love to see it, I don't think the Rams have enough to pull the upset on the Steelers.

San Francisco at Arizona- Is there a new sheriff emerging in the NFC West? I think so.

Buffalo at Miami- The Bills defense will keep this a low scoring affair.

Chicago at Seattle- The Seahawks at 0-2 is quite misleading. They are definitely better than their early record shows, and I think that The 12th Man helps the Seahawks to their first win.

Denver at Detroit- It seems that Matthew Stafford forgot that he has a big WR. I wonder if this is the week Denver finally finds their offense?

Kansas at Green Bay- No discount double check, or hesitation here. The Pack will topple the Chiefs.



I can't do any worse than last week! Good luck everyone. Enjoy the games!

Washington at New York / Might be a homer pick, but the Redskins right now look far better than the Giants.
Atlanta at Dallas /Romo Out. Dez Out. 'nough said.
Indianapolis at Tennessee /This is going to be interesting. This is not a gimme game for the Colts. The 0-2 Colts that is.
Oakland at Cleveland /I think these teams are evenly matched and this pick can go either way.
Cincinnati at Baltimore /Baltimore won't go 0-3.
Jacksonville at New England /Goes without saying.
New Orleans at Carolina /The Saints need a miracle.
Philadelphia at New York /Jets are going to be a tough team to beat, but the Eagles won't go 0-3.
Tampa Bay at Houston /If JJ Watts can play quarterback, I might change this pick.
San Diego at Minnesota /.
Pittsburgh at St. Louis /I think Pittsburgh is at least the #2 team in the league right now, right behind New England.
San Francisco at Arizona /San Fran is circling the drain.
Buffalo at Miami /My fellow Hokie Tyrod Taylor is making Buffalo into a contender, with help from Shady!
Chicago at Seattle /Hard to imagine Seattle going 0-3, but definitely hard to imagine going 0-3 against the Bears.
Denver at Detroit /Not sure what's happening with Detroit but they're starting to go backwards.
Kansas at Green Bay /This is not going to be an easy game, but Rodgers should continue having some good games, because he needs to win me some fantasy points!

All those upsets last week sure do make picking harder to do this week. I'm not sure if Week 2 was an anomaly or if some teams are better or worse than I thought they were, but here goes nothing.

Redskins @ Giants-After 2 close losses, I can't see Eli and ODB going 0-3 against a Redskins team they should be able to dominate.

Falcons@Cowboys-With Romo out, the Cowboys are deflated. They've proven they can win without Dez Bryant, but I don't see them winning much with Brandon Weeden under center. Falcons are a good enough team to go into Arlington and win. Dallas didn't lose on the road during the regular season last year, but they did drop a few at home. I hate the Cowboys and I hope they lose the rest of their games, but I still feel bad for Romo and Cowboys fans though.

Colts @ Titans-I've never thought the Colts were a good football team. I believe they were merely beneficiaries of playing in a bad division last season. Despite an 0-2 start, they were 6-0 against division foes last season and still rule the roost in the weak AFC South. Getting to play the Jags, Titans, and Texans twice should get them 6 wins again this year.

Raiders @ Browns-This should be a close game. Although Johnny Nightclub had a good game in Week 2, I was more impressed with what the Raiders did to the Ravens. Derek Carr looked great against what I thought was a tough defense.

Bengals @ Ravens-There's no way Flacco and company are going 0-3 in their home opener.

Jaguars @ Pats-This one is a gimme.

Saints @ Panthers-I keep picking the Saints and they keep losing, so let's try something different this week.

Eagles @ Jets-Jets D will have a field day against Sam Bradford. Jets go 3-0 and Eagles go 0-3. Bizarre.

Bucs@Texans-JJ Watt smokes a Winston this week.

Chargers@Vikings--AP goes off in a squeaker over the Chargers.

Steelers @ Rams-I expect a shootout and believe the Steelers have more firepower than Foles and company.

49ers @ Cardinals-What a difference a week makes. I loved my Niners after beating the Vikings, but they are ticking me off again after an abysmal performance in Pittsburgh. I expect them to suck again in Arizona.

Bills @ Dolphins-I think the Bills are a better team and should win this, but I have a feeling the Fins pull this out despite losing to the Jags in Week 2.

Bears @ Seahawks-I remember everyone wondering what was wrong with the Seahawks when they started 3-3 last year. They proceeded to win the next 9 out of 10 games and ended up being 1 bad play call away from winning the Super Bowl. While they're 0-2 right now, there's no need to panic. They'll be there in the end as long as they can get Cam Chancellor on board. This should be an easy win against the Bears even though Cutler isn't playing.

Broncos @ Lions-I like the Lions at home, just not against the Broncos whose defense is playing excellent right now.

Chiefs @ Packers-I'll take the Packers at Lambeau every time as long as Aaron Rodgers is under center.
