Fearless NFL predictions for week three

Buccaneers (0-2) at Falcons (1-1)

The Bucs have won two of the last three meetings and are looking for their first win of the season. While this has upset written all over it, I don’t think Atlanta will fall into this trap game.

The Bucs have allowed backup quarterbacks to get the best of them this season and now they’ll face Matt Ryan, which is not a good sign. Pick: Falcons

Chargers (1-1) at Bills (2-0) The Chargers are set to take on the first place Bills. That’s right, I said the first place Bills. Who would’ve thought?

But San Diego is coming off a high of there own after beating the defending Super Bowl champs last week. This game will come down to quarterback play and I’ll take Phillip Rivers over EJ Manuel any day. Pick: Chargers

Cowboys (1-1) at Rams (1-1) Someone wake me when this game is over. Both teams are playing sloppy out of the gate.

The Rams are down to their third-string quarterback and Tony Romo is similarly playing like a third-string quarterback. Dallas takes it in a battle of field goals. Pick: Cowboys

Redskins (0-2) at Eagles (2-0) The Eagles are for real. Just ask the Colts. The Redskins will turn to quarterback Kirk Cousins, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

Washington’s pass rush was outstanding last week when they recorded ten sacks. But, that was against the Jaguars. The Eagles are just too fast and have a much better offensive line. Pick: Eagles

Texans (2-0) at Giants (0-2) Call me crazy, but I think the Giants get their first win of the season. Houston’s QB situation is unsettling at best and they’ve beaten two mediocre teams in the Redskins and the Raiders. No Jadeveon Clowney means Eli bounces back for the win. Pick: Giants

Titans (1-1) at Bengals (2-0) The Bengals are quietly making waves in the NFL. They’re going to miss star wideout A.J. Green, though, if he can’t go this week. The Titans offense sputtered against the Cowboys last week and will be facing a stout Bengals defense. Too big of a challenge for Jake Locker. Pick: Bengals

Ravens (1-1) at Browns (1-1) This will be a great matchup between Steve Smith, Sr. and Joe Haden. Baltimore has too many other weapons in Torrey Smith, Owen Daniels and Dennis Pitta though, so something’s gotta give. Ravens squeak one out in a close game. Pick: Ravens

Packers (1-1) at Lions (1-1) If you love high-scoring games, don’t miss this one. Both teams run high-powered offenses capable of scoring at will. (We’ll just call the 7 points scored by the Lions against Carolina last week a fluke). The Lions secondary is banged up, so expect a big game from Aaron Rodgers. Pick: Packers

Colts (0-2) at Jaguars (0-2) It’s guaranteed that someone is coming out of this with their first win.

The Colts have played two tough games against the Broncos and Eagles. The Jags dominated the Eagles in week one, albeit for only one half. Andrew Luck vs. Chad Henne? Pick: Colts

Raiders (0-2) at Patriots (1-1) Somehow I don’t think a rookie QB is going to beat a Bill Belichick coached team. Pick: Patriots

49ers (1-1) at Cardinals (2-0) Two great defenses square off in this matchup. The key to this game will be whether Carson Palmer plays. If not, I just don’t see Drew Stanton having much success. Pick: 49ers

Broncos (2-0) at Seahawks (1-1) Welcome to the most hyped game of the regular season. The Seahawks were dominated in time of possession last week against the Chargers.

Denver has barely held on to win two close games against the Colts and Chiefs. You can’t argue with the 12th man which will give the Hawks a huge advantage. Pick: Seahawks

Chiefs (0-2) at Dolphins (1-1) The Chiefs continue their downward spiral with Cameron Wake wreaking havoc all day. Pick: Dolphins

Steelers (1-1) at Panthers (2-0) What’s wrong with the Pittsburgh defense? In two games, they have yet to record a takeaway. They had zero pass rush against the Ravens last week. Look for Cam Newton to expose their flaws. Pick: Panthers

Bears (1-1) at Jets (1-1) Last week, the Jets secondary allowed Jordy Nelson over 200 yards receiving. Coming off a three-touchdown performance, Brandon Marshall will be too much for this inexperienced group. Pick: Bears
