Week 3 Game Predictions

I'm back once again to do my NFL game predictions, despite by ridiculously embarrassing performance picking games last week. I'm out to prove that was a fluke!

Last week's record: 6-9
Season record: 15-16

Falcons over Chiefs - The Falcons came back down to earth last week after their Week 1 win, but they shouldn't have a hard time handling the lowly Chiefs.

Patriots over Dolphins - Note to self: never pick Miami again you moron.

Bills over Raiders - As much as I hate to admit it, the 2-0 Bills are good. Plus, the Raiders are their easiest opponent yet.

Giants over Bengals - If I had a nickel for every time the Bengals burned me after I picked them over the last few years...I'd have close to a dollar. You have to figure Carson Palmer and Co. will turn it around, but not against the defending Super Bowl champs.

Buccaneers over Bears - The Bears blew a big lead against Carolina last week and I don't see them rebounding.

Titans over Texans - Another week without Vince Young, another good chance to win.

Redskins over Cardinals - Not to take anything away from Arizona, but the Dolphins were just awful last week. The Redskins provide a much more formidable opponent.

Panthers over Vikings - The undefeated Panthers get Steve Smith back against the winless Vikings.

Broncos over Saints - The Broncos are playing great right now, and the Saints just aren't playing up to their potential.

Lions over 49ers - Stopping Frank Gore will be tough, but the Niners are still a poor team and the Lions should be able to beat them.

Seahawks over Rams - I wouldn't pick the Rams to beat USC right now.

Eagles over Steelers - An absolutely outstanding matchup and complete toss-up.

Colts over Jaguars - The Jaguars always make it a game, but I think the Colts continue to build momentum.

Browns over Ravens - I can't think of anything to say about this one. So I didn't.

Cowboys over Packers - Another excellent matchup and a tough call, but I predict the Cowboys continue to roll.

Chargers over Jets - Even if LT can't play, the Chargers should secure their first win against the Jets.
