I've been a decent 20-12 thus far. But a blind rat can do that. I need to do better. So here is my no-frills picks for Week 3:
REDSKINS [0-2] OVER TEXANS [0-2]: If the Skins can't get off the mat in this one, they may as well just hang up the season.
LIONS [0-2] OVER PACKERS [0-2]: Flip a coin on this one.
DOLPHINS [0-2] OVER TITANS [0-2]: This could be the 3rd and Final game of the Kerry Collins Era in Nashville.
PANTHERS [0-2] OVER BUCCANEERS [0-2]: At least Carolina has been in one of the their games.
COLTS [2-0] OVER JAGUARS [2-0]: These usually turn into great games. Should be same on Sunday.
BEARS [2-0] OVER VIKINGS [2-0]: Sorry, but I'm gonna pick the team that's blown out their two opponents over the one that's won by two late FGs.
BENGALS OVER STEELERS: Both teams are banged up and this game will be plenty physical. So I like that Cincy offensive line and Rudi Johnson to do damage.
SEAHAWKS OVER GIANTS: This should be a great game to watch!!!!
BILLS OVER JETS: Willis McGahee owns the Jets....and I'm banking on a big day from him.
RAVENS OVER BROWNS: Let's see....Baltimore gets to face a bad young QB for the third straight week [Simms, Walters, Frye].
EAGLES OVER NINERS: Donovan McNabb shreds that Niner defense.
CARDINALS OVER RAMS: Why not? I mean, St Louis did lose in San Fran last week. And Arizona has yet to lose a regular season game in the history of Cardinals Stadium. Well, they are 1-0.
PATRIOTS OVER BRONCOS: I can't in good conscience pick a team that has yet to score a TD to beat the Pats in New England.
FALCONS [2-0] OVER SAINTS [2-0]: This will be the most emotional game of the weekend and should affect us all. In a perfect world, the Saints will win this game. But as the citizens of N'Awlins can tell you.....it isn't.
