I'm not sure if this is the softest game the Patriots have before November, as they do have Team Timmysprinkles at home in two weeks, but it's close. Hopefully it's not a replay of last year's game in Bad Owner Stadium.

I'm kind of curious to see how the fans welcome the refs at Lambeau. Should be a party.

This looks like it's going to be one of those years when my picks are the hotness. On ESPN against-the-spread, I'm 31-18, in the 99.8%ile.

Here are my picks for this week from my local pool (which uses slightly different spreads):
Browns +13, Patriots -4, Vikings +5, Falcons -7.5, 49ers -3.5, Chiefs -1, Titans +12, Seahawks -3, Dolphins +6, Raiders +6.5, Bengals -2.5, Packers -7.5, Bucs -3, Eagles -1, Cowboys -3.5.
Best bets:
Titans +12. Don't get me wrong, Houston wins this game, but I feel like this will only be decided by a touchdown, maybe with an insurance field goal.
Raiders +6.5. I didn't like having to make this pick and count on the Raiders, but the spreads were just too damn close to my gut feelings across the board.
Bengals -2.5. If there's any team I feel confident the Bengals will beat soundly, it's freaking Jacksonville. A team does not live on MJD alone.

Last week: 11-5* (really 12-4, you shiathead refs), 2-1 best bets
Season total: 28-19-1, 5-4 best bets

Thanks to the bye week, I'm starting the Red Headed Bengal and Brandon Tate in FF instead of Ben & Wallace. But Cincy's playing the Jags, so I'm good, right?

If the Packers don't come out and play some much better football, especially their offensive line, I will be very upset, yes they lost to a bad call, but it shouldn't have come down to that, their o-line was absolute shait last week,

It'd have been nice if the coaching staff hadn't waited until 8 sacks had accumulated before going with extra tight ends.

That whole game had way too much wrong with it. Even if it had ended up 12-7 like IT SHOULD HAVE (looks in the direction of a certain Seahawks homer who fought every last post in every last thread against the Seahawks), we'd still be saying something was definitely wrong there.

Then again, there's a lot I can say about the weirdness of that whole NFC West right now. The Rams are the only ones doing exactly what we expected them to do.
 
2012-09-30 11:12:38 AM  
As an Atlanta Falcons fan, I'm definitely enjoying the season so far. But I'm also worried that with each win we'll have another player get arrested for something stupid.
 
2012-09-30 11:15:25 AM  
At least the Steelers can't blow another commanding lead in the 4th quarter this week.
 
2012-09-30 11:31:30 AM  
After going 10-6* in week 3, the season record now stands at 29-18. Alas, with the replacement officials having been repaced, I'm fresh out of excuses if something goes amiss this week. Lucky for me I've tapped into a psychic well spring, channeled the ghost of Jimmy Greek (but not the racist parts), and come up with 100% winners this time around.

Well, either that or there was something funny in that burrito last night.

Carolina Panthers at Atlanta Falcons:
After holding Peyton Manning in check two weeks ago and dismantling Philip Rivers' offense last Sunday, facing a slumping Cam Newton has to seem like a break for the Falcons. And after the thorough thrashing that Carolina suffered at the hands of the Giants last week, the blueprints on how to keep Newton in his slump are certainly out there. It's a divisional matchup and the Panthers are no Browns, but I can't see Atlanta falling from the ranks of the unbeaten just yet.

New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills:
In the span of a single game, New England's defense dropped from 2nd in the league to 24th while the team fell to 1-2 for the first time in nearly a decade. Meanwhile, the Bills have quietly won 2 straight since their opening weekend disaster, and currently sit as the highest-scoring team in the AFC East. Combine that with the fact that Buffalo learned last year that they can beat the Pats (at least, at home), and I smell an upset here. New England is doing the right thing by getting younger on defense, but the price of that strategy in the near-term will be a few of these growing pains.

Minnesota Vikings at Detroit Lions:
The Lions have looked very unimpressive over the first 3 weeks, culminating with that humiliating overtime loss to Tennessee last Sunday. Minnesota, meanwhile, comes in on the heels of a shocking win against the 49ers, while Christian Ponder is starting to look like a real, live NFL quarterback. So with all that plus Matthew Stafford having some injury concerns, the obvious pick would be the Vikings in a mild upset...which is why I'm picking Detroit. I've learned from the past 3 wacky weeks.

Tennesee Titans at Houston Texans:
After being held under 14 points in each of their first two games, the Titans suddenly exploded for 44 against Detroit last week. This Sunday they revert back to their old ways against the 2nd-ranked defense in the NFL. Meanwhile, look for Arian Foster to go off against a Tennessee defense that's made 100-yard rushers out of Stevan Ridley and Mikel Leshoure already this season.

San Diego Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs:
Jamaal Charles gained more rushing yards last week than the Chargers have allowed all season. My money is on San Diego to bring his numbers back down to Earth this week (unlike New Orleans, they'll try to tackle a runner before he's 10 yards downfield), and for Philip Rivers to bounce back just enough to maintain San Diego's AFC West lead.

San Francisco 49ers at New York Jets:
Three weeks into the season, it's still near-impossible to figure the Jets out. They utterly destroy the Bills at home to start the year, then follow that up by being dominated by Pittsburgh and narrowly eking out an overtime win in Miami (and only then after the Dolphins missed two field goals). On the other side of the ball, after looking like the class of the league in the first two games, San Fran travels to New York having just been manhandled by the Vikings. I look for a highly motivated Niners squad to right the ship in a big away here.

Seattle Seahawks at St. Louis Rams:
The Seahawks come in at 2-1*, having played some of the most dominant defense in recent memory against the Cowboys and Packers. After a promising first two weeks, Sam Bradford and the Rams regressed in a big way in Chicago last weekend. The difference for Bradford has always seemed to be how much pressure is thrown in his face, and if Seattle proved anything last Monday night, it's that they can bring pressure on a quarterback. I look for Seattle's defense to outscore both St. Louis and the Seahawks' offense in this one.

Miami Dolphins at Arizona Cardinals:
So I (correctly) pick the Cards to beat Philadelphia last weekend, and now I'm picking Miami to upset them this time? Psychology--the Cardinals are 3-0 for the first time since before any of their current players were born, and they currently enjoy a 1-game lead in a division most people picked them to finish third in. The Dolphins played well enough to win last week (except for Dan Carpenter), and Arizona is exactly the kind of team they can hang around and pull off a 4th-quarter shocker against. Also, aliens.

Oakland Raiders at Denver Broncos:
The Houston Texans have one of the best pass defenses in the league, and Peyton Manning still came within one score of a shocking comeback victory against them. The Oakland Raiders, to put it mildly, do not have one of the best pass defenses in the league. Between running for his life from Von Miller & Co. and watching his receivers drop pass after pass, Carson Palmer might literally explode at some point during this one.

Cincinnati Bengals at Jacksonville Jaguars:
I'm so used to associating these two teams with defense that it comes as a shock to see them both ranked in the bottom 5 on that side of the ball. The difference-maker here is that Cincy has a more balanced offense (which isn't saying much), plus, hey--it's the Jaguars.

New Orleans Saints at Green Bay Packers:
Okay, regardless of what did or did not happen on the last play against Seattle, even had the Packers walked away with the win they'd still have to be regarded as a tremendous disappointment so far, and particularly on offense. Green Bay comes in with the 25th-ranked offensive unit in the league, and are just 20th in passing. Fortunately for them, they draw the 32nd-ranked New Orleans Saints "defense" this week: discount double-checks galore!

Washington Redskins at Tampa Bay Buccaneers:
Washington comes in as the highest-scoring team in the league, while Tampa has surrendered just 42 points over 11 quarters this season. Unfortunately for them, the Bucs also played a 12th quarter, where they gave up 25 points en route to blowing a big 4th-quarter lead to the Giants. Tampa Bay has struggled against the pass all season long, and Robert Griffith III has shown that he's capable of putting up the kind of numbers the Pewter Pirates can surrender. A few turnovers will keep it close, but Washington gets the victory.

New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles:
After committing 12 turnovers in the first 3 weeks, Philly draws a New York defense which has forced 8. If they can kick their spirit of giving for a game then the Eagles have the tools to keep this close, maybe even pull off the upset, but I don't know that they can hold on to the ball for an entire game and I do know that the Giants have the weapons to take advantage of those turnovers.

Chicago Bears at Dallas Cowboys
The Dallas offense just doesn't look good this season, and only their surprising defense has allowed them to reach 2-1. That said, we're talking about Jay Cutler here, and the Cowboys can bring enough pressure to fluster Captain Emo and force the kinds of mistakes only he can make. On the bright side for Chicago, the Monday night game means a short week of the blame game before he's ready to beast against Jacksonville.

Harv72b: while the team fell to 1-2 for the first time in nearly a decade.


You mean, in over a decade. Last time they were ever 1-2 was in 2001.

I've been noticing people getting that wrong lately. Last time they were under .500 was 2003 when they lost the first game of the season to the Bills. Not including the Bill Belichick's 5-11 dismal inaugural 2000 season, the latest in the season they've ever been under .500 was 3-4 in 2002.
