NFL Picks - Week 3

Man, I'm on fire so far! 23 wins in 2 weeks!
Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of confidence in this week's selctions, since some of these games are toss-ups. Proceed with caution.

Jacksonville over INDIANAPOLIS
Jags D looks very tough, and I think this is the week they stick it to the Colts.

MINNESOTA over Chicago
Vikes at home can get by as yet untested Bears.

Washington over HOUSTON
'Sinks offense gets back on track vs. woeful Texans.

N.Y. Jets over BUFFALO
Jets showed a little toughness in near comeback last week; Bills coming off big win, primed for a slight letdown.

MIAMI over Tennessee
Fish finally find the win column. Culpepper can't be this bad, can he?

Carolina over TAMPA BAY
Two unexpectedly winless teams clash, with the loser headed for a long uphill battle. The hunch here is that Carolina is better and will find a way to keep Chris Simms' nightmare alive another week.

PITTSBURGH over Cincinnati
Love Cowher coming off an embarassing shutout loss on Monday. Big Ben will shake off the rust against a somehwat banged-up Bengal D.

DETROIT over Green Bay
Lions showed toughness in home opener against Seahwaks, and should prevail. Pack are a mess.

Baltimore over CLEVELAND
Might be closer that most people think, but the Ravens big play defense should give Brownies fits all day long.

N.Y. Giants over SEATTLE
Revenge time for last season's terrible loss. 'Hawks still haven't hit on all cylinders, and they have yet to play a team as tough as the G-Men.

Philadelphia over SAN FRANCISCO
Eagles a little banged-up, but will find a way to grab this one on the road against a surprisingly tough Niner bunch.

ARIZONA over St. Louis
Rams, still reeling from last weeks road loss at SF, face a big play Cardinal offense.

NEW ENGLAND over Denver
Another Revenge Special. Broncos must really miss Gary Kubiak, as the offense looks lost. Pats, at home, will atone for last year's playoff (referee aided) loss.

Atlanta over NEW ORLEANSDespite all of the goodwill regarding the return of football to the Big Easy, I can't see the Saints stopping the potent Falcon ground game.

Last week: 12-4
Overall: 23-9 (72%)
