NFL Picks..... Week{3}

Posted on: September 25, 2009 11:30 am
Ok, wow, like I said, all credibility needs to be recovered this weekend after a pathetic predicition session last week...
9-7 Last Week, combined with the 13-3 form Week 1 brings my overall record to
22-10, Not to bad, but 10 losses this early isn't lookin to good.

This week comes loaded with interesting matchups, the Oakland/Denver is virtually a split for me, I might just literally do a coin toss to decide the winner. Atlanta Falcons, and New England Patriots is another good matchup. Michael Turner is 10th in the league in rushing and the Patriots haven't been great at stoping the run thus far. And will Detroit FINALLY get a win!?!?

Maybe it's because I tried to "look to into things" last week, telling why I felt each game is what it is.... This week I'm just going with my picks, highlighted in bold

Ravens v. Cleveland Browns
Detroit Lions v. Washington Redskins
Houston Texans v. Jacksonville Jaguars
Minnesota Vikings v. San Francisco 49ers
Atlanta Falcons v. New England(?)
New York Jets v. Tennessee Titans
Kansas City Chiefs v. Philadelphia Eagles(?)
Green Bay Packers v. St.Louis Rams
New York Giants v. Tampa Bay Bucs
Buffalo Bills v. New Orleans Saints
Chicago Bears v. Seattle Seahawks
Cincinnatti Bengals v. Pittsburgh Steelers
Oakland Raiders v. Denver Broncos(?)
San Diego Chargers v. Miami Dolphins
Arizona Cardinals v. Indianapolis Colts
Dallas Cowboys v. Carolina Panthers{{Panthers have a shot though.=]}}

?'s are the games that I could easily flop either way...
NE/ATLI'm taking the Patriots because Wes Welker will be back, and after hearin' all week that "they aren't what they were" they game plan like crazy, like always. No back to back losses since what 2001!? Thats crazy!.
KC/PHI Pending DeSean Jackson and Westbrook start.  I'm sure phillys defense will be able to control the line of scrimmage, but that offense might be abysmal without there 2 big weapons on the field.
Oak/Den: Oak has played surprisingly well, but with Robert Gallery out, I'm not sure what kind of protection JeMarcus Russel will get on the outside from Elvis Dumervil....

thats why I went how I went....=]

Enjoy the great football weekend...

NCState University v. Pittsburgh =]
3:30 ESPNU, will be a great game
27-17 please.

NFL Picks..... Week{3}

12-3 thus far, but betting against my beloved panthers ...=[
Oh well, I'd take a panthers win over a Pick'em win. =]

I still DON'T get why WASHINGTON, who has a quarterback that can throw the ball 70 yards from his knees, would run a hook an ladder on the last play. The only thing I could come up with is the height, they have no tall receviers but I still like my chances with the hail mary from 40 yds out rather than a hook and ladder.

NFL Picks..... Week{3}

I agree with all of your picks except I picked Atlanta to upset New England because I'm not sold on the Patriots after they got exposed by the Bills and got held in check by the Jets. The only factor that will help NE is the weather and the fact that the Falcons play in a dome. I still think the Falcons will win though.

NFL Picks..... Week{3}

Like your picks Bradman,think Cincy/Steelers could go either way sa Steelers,with Parker and Mendenhall can't run the ball.The loss Pomeleau really hurts their defense.
