It’s week 3 in the NFL, and yes there have already been big upsets, disappointments, and surprises. The Saints starting at 0-2? The Patriots losing to the Cardinals? The Eagles are 2-0 with 9 turnovers in those 2 games? Anything can happen on any given Sunday…Check out the week 3 matchups below!
The biggest game on the slate looks to be New England at Baltimore. Both teams are 1-1 and are coming off a loss (did New England ruin your survivor pool too?), and they’ll be hungry for wins. This should be a great game.
New Orleans cannot go 0-3 to start the year, especially with all the parity in the league now, as some bad teams have started to turn the corner. They have it somewhat easy this week as they host the 0-2 Chiefs, but their defense is very suspect. This has high scoring game written all over it.
Survivor pool picks: Chicago over St. Louis, or New Orleans over Kansas City
Chicago’s defense will help them past St. Louis, and they’ll get back on track being at home this game. New Orleans HAS to win this game to stay competitive in their division.
Against the spread: Miami +3.5, San Diego – 3
Miami manhandled Oakland at home last week (yes, we know it’s Oakland, but they still won handily), and the Jets got shown the door in Pittsburgh. Now the Jets have to travel to Miami to face a divisional rival who’s on a high. We’ll take the points.
Atlanta looked good on the scoreboard against Denver, but that’s thanks to 3 picks thrown by Peyton in the first quarter. Without those, Atlanta probably would have had 13 less points and lost the game. Now they have to travel across the country to face a hot San Diego team at home, who’s defense is playing great.
