Week 3 NFL Pics

Here we are already at week 3. Last week I went 10-5 and my lock of the week was correct. Here we go week 3 version... hopefully a little better than 67% this week. Here we go.

K.C. @ Atlanta- Again some growing pains for the young Falcons. Larry Johnson will push a struggling K.C. team to a victory and avoid going 0-3.

Oakland @ Buffalo- Buffalo is the real deal and they will beat the young Raiders with the home field advantage. Raiders will continue to gain confidence, but not quite good enough to win in Buffalo.

Tampa Bay @ Chicago- This could be a very low scoring game with two good defenses and not very potent offenses. I have Chicago winning because they are at home and I think the Bear Defense will be too much for the Buccs.

Carolina @ Minnesota- Two teams going in opposite directions. Carolina cruising and getting Steve Smith back... while Minnesota is benching Jackson and AP is a little banged up. I have Carolina going 3-0 and J Stew continuing his run at ROY.

Miami @ New England- I think I might be able to QB New England to a victory over the Dolphins. New England in this one.

Cincinnati @ NY Giants- Cincy will have a decent showing (or better than the last two weeks) however, it will not be enough to win. Cincy will lose a close one.

Houston @ Tennessee- Two words. Kerry Collins. Houston will win this one. Two weeks to prepare and Kerry Collins is still a back up. Played well last week but he will show why he is second string. Houston will win this one.

Arizona @ Washington- Kurt Warner is playing like the 2 time MVP that he is and the Cards will win this one and may solidify that Leinart will be riding the pine for a while.

New Orleans @ Denver- Denver will win because their defense is playing with a swagger that they haven't had for a couple of years... and Invesco is a great home field advantage.

Detroit @ San Francisco- Again the Lions are horrible and their Defense will be why they lose a close one on the road. The only way this one gets out of hand is if Martz decides to run up the score on his former team, which would not surprise me one bit.

St.Louis @ Seattle- We have the Seahawks trying to do everything in their power just to have enough receivers to suite up. Koren Robinson will catch some balls and the lowly Rams will struggle with the 12th man in Seattle.

Cleveland @ Baltimore- Cleveland will win this because they will actually put points on the board. Flacco was less than impressive in week 1 and the Baltimore offense will struggle.

Jacksonville @ Indianapolis- The only thing that is making this one a tough decision is the fact that Bob Sanders is out. However, with the return of Jeff Saturday the running game will open up, which will open up the passing game for Manning. Indy in a close one.

Pittsburgh @ Philadelphia- A short week for Philly coupled with the tough loss on Monday night will have them slightly mentally drained and not quite ready to go against Pittsburgh. The Steel Curtain will win this one.

Dallas @ Green Bay- Everyone seems to want to take Dallas in this one. But I don't see it. Green Bay's Defense is better than everyone realizes as is Aaron Rodgers. Dallas is the popular pick because everyone loves Romo, but this is just another game that Rodgers will show why the Packers decided to part ways with Favre.

NY Jets @ San Diego- I have the Chargers winning a close one. They will be bitter about their loss at Denver but Favre will keep the Jets in the game but they just wont have enough to overcome and aggressive Charger team.

And My lock of the week is....New England over Miami. Miami is no good. New England could probably win with out scoring an offensive touchdown.
