Week 3 – Survivor Pools

Well, it was a disappointing Week 2 as the Packers could not beat the Bengals at Lambeau Field. The Redskins survived a close game with the Rams while 

Buffalo controlled the game against

the

Tampa

Bay.

Minnesota was able to overcome an early 10-0 deficit to pull away for the victory. A good amount of people were likely eliminated in your pool. But if you survived, check out the Week 3 analysis.

New England – Win

Week 2

Green Bay – Loss

 

Week 3 games …

 

Browns @ Ravens

Baltimore is a double-digit favorite against what may be the worst team in football. This is a divisional game, but it does not matter. The Browns are terrible.

 

Redskins @ Lions

Washington could barely beat

St. Louis at home, so I’m not trusting them this week, even against the Lions.

 

Jaguars @ Texans

– Never know with these AFC South teams. Stay away.

 

Falcons @ Patriots

– Great NFC/AFC matchup in

New England.

 

Packers @ Rams

– What happen to that revamped defense Sunday,

Green Bay?

 

Giants @ Buccaneers

– I’d look elsewhere after Big Blue came off a big SNF win and are in the second of three straight road games. I’d rather roll with a home team.

 

Titans @ Jets

– Very intriguing AFC game as the Titans look to avoid an 0-3 hole as the Jets will try to start 3-0 with a rookie QB at the helm.

 

Chiefs @ Eagles

– If Donovan McNabb starts, this choice is easy. However, it still is a good choice as the Eagles will not drop two straight home games in September. The Eagles are a top choice this weekend.

 

49ers @ Vikings

– This is the most interesting NFC game as these 2-0 teams square off in Minnesota, where Brett Favre will make his debut in front of the Viking fans.

 

Saints @ Bills

– Another game for

New Orleans on the east coast. Good thing for Drew Brees owners is that this one is in September and not December. Avoid this one.

 

Bears @ Seahawks

– Too close to call. Matt Hasselbeck’s status is not clear.

Steelers @ Bengals

– How will

Cincinnati respond after a big win in Lambeau? How will

Pittsburgh play after a tough loss in

Chicago? Big game for 1-1 teams in the AFC North this early in the season.

 

Broncos @ Raiders

– 

Denver is 2-0 after many thought they were in for a long season. Or could they still be?

Oakland has looked decent through two games. AFC West rivalry.

 

Dolphins @ Chargers

– I would consider

San Diego this week after they lost a tough one to

Baltimore last week.

Miami also is coming off short rest to Peyton Manning and must come to the west coast. If the Chargers can control that running game, they’ll have no problem beating

the Dolphins.

 

Colts @ Cardinals

– We have had some great primetime games so far this season and this one should not be any different. Offense, offense, offense.

 

Panthers @ Cowboys

– If the Panthers were not desperate and 0-2, I’d love the Cowboys this weekend. They can’t start off 0-2 in that new stadium, can they?

Carolina will give it all they have on Monday night as an 0-3 start would not bold well for their playoff chances.

 

My picks

:

Baltimore,

Philadelphia,

San Diego. I’m going with the

RAVENS to handle the Browns at home.

Cleveland is a mess and even though this is a divisional game, the Browns are on the road.

Baltimore should control the clock and dominate this game on the ground.
