Although the Seahawks vs 49ers failed to live up to the hype, Week 2 was still brilliant but Week 3 has arrived so lets dive into it:
Philadelphia Eagles vs Kansas City Chiefs
Can the Chiefs outscore the Eagles? I don’t think so. This early in the season I don’t see anyone slowing the Eagles offence and they will get big numbers again.
Baltimore Ravens vs Houston Texans
The Ravens don’t have enough offensive threat to scare the Texans. I can see JJ Watt having a big game and Andre Johnson has been confirmed fit so I will take the Texans to come away with a win.
Carolina Panthers vs New York Giants
Eli Manning will protect the ball better this week and get the Giants offence rolling. The cautious Panthers offence will struggle to keep up. Giants win.
Cincinnati Bengals vs Green Bay Packers
Two good teams going head-to-head in this one and the match I will be watching on Sunday. Although the Bengals defence is a force and the Packers offensive line will struggle to contain Atkins and Co, I am still going for a Packers win after last weeks impressive performance.
Dallas Cowboys vs St.Louis Rams
Coach, Jason Garrett has said they need to run the ball more and if they provide that balance I can see the Cowboys getting a home win here. However, their pass defence better step up against Sam Bradford.
Minnesota Vikings vs Cleveland Browns
The Browns can’t be going into this with any confidence. Brandon Weeden out and Trent Richardson gone, the Vikings will get a solid home win.
New England Patriots vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Tampa Bay defence has been good so far, keeping the games very close but the Patriots have had time to practice and improve and they will squeeze through again.
New Orleans Saints vs Arizona Cardinals
This could turn into a shoot-out in New Orleans, with Larry Fitzgerald possibly not fully fit and the Saints at home I will take them to continue a good start.
Tennessee Titans vs San Diego Chargers
The Titans could be 2-0, I doubt many people thought that would have been possible at the start of the season. A tough contest against the in-form Phil Rivers that I think they could edge.
Washington Redskins vs Detroit Lions
The Redskins passing defence has been dreadful so far and I see the Lions taking full advantage of this winning a high scoring match.
Miami Dolphins vs Atlanta Falcons
The Dolphins had a really good win last weekend. The Falcons offensive line has struggled so far and they will struggle to run the ball. Ryan Tannehill will play steady football and the defence will win them the game.
New York Jets vs Buffalo Bills
The Bills will come into this confident after last weeks last second win, however, I see the Jets defence being good enough to slow them down. Geno Smith throws a couple of TDs to win it.
Seattle Seahawks vs Jacksonville Jaguars
A lot of people’s picks for the best team in the NFL right now versus the worst team in the NFL right now. This should be comfortable for the Seahawks.
San Francisco 49er's vs Indianapolis Colts
The Richardson trade is a boost for the Colts backfield but I don’t think it makes a difference in this match up, the 49ers will be able to run the ball this week and will bounce back.
Pittsburgh Steelers vs Chicago Bears
Its hard to see the Steelers starting 0-3 but I have liked what the Bears have done so far and the Steelers have been truly awful. So, I am going for the Bears defense to shut down the Steelers and get a road win.
Denver Broncos vs Oakland Raiders
The Broncos have been the outstanding team in the AFC so far and everyone fully expects them to beat the Raiders easily.
