A little delayed, but here we go:
Daniel: BUF, DET, BAL, CLE, TB, NO, NYJ, PIT, WAS, GB, DAL, DEN, HOU, PHI, NE, NYG (14-2)
Ryan: BUF, DET, BAL, IND, TB, NO, NYJ, PIT, ARI, GB, DAL, CIN, HOU, ATL, NE, STL (13-3)
Week 3 Picks:
NE over BUF – While the Patriots defense is suspect, they still have Tom Brady. As great as Fitzpatrick has played this season, Brady is still the best in the league.
CAR over JAX – 2 combined starts between the two QBs in this matchup. Cam has thrown for 800+ yards and has the weapons to win while Gabbert has the same tools Garrard had…..doesn’t bode well for the Mizzou great.
CIN over SF – The 49ers have played pretty decent this season, but as long as Alex Smith is their QB, they’re being held back. Dalton gets win #2
CLE over MIA – Miami goes 0-3
DET over MIN – The Vikings go 0-3, McNabb isn’t all at fault (although that first game….yeah), but we’re probably going to see Ponder very soon
HOU over NO – Saints defense is still the Saints defense. I know it’s in the Super Dome but we saw what Rodgers did, Schaub will probably put up numbers too.
NYG over PHI – Giants offense is built on the ground, and they’ll give the Eagles trouble up front. They can still create pressure up front and as the Falcons proved that gives the Eagles fits. The Giants come with the surprise win, despite Eli’s inconsistency.
TEN over DEN – Hasselbeck showed flashes of what led the Seahawks to the Super Bowl some years back. The Titans aren’t going anywhere this year, but they can knock off a few teams and give the rest fits.
NYJ over OAK – Had to think twice about this one, but the Jets defense will cover any problems their offense encounters.
SD over KC – Chiefs are atrocious right now
BAL over STL – Baltimore 180s once again and puts a beating on the Rams
GB over CHI – Cutler is getting beat down, and it will continue this week
ARI over SEA – Tarvaris Jackson may actually break the 200 yard mark this week.
ATL over TB – Freeman is dangerous, but they’ve shown that putting pressure on him can stall the offense. Atlanta has created a pass rush if nothing else this offseason.
PIT over IND – Only team worse than Indy is KC
WAS over DAL – Rex Grossman continues to shut me up
