Holy crap, I got obliterated. Giants snatched defeat from the jaws of victory for a second straight week. Eagles and Saints simply suck.
Desperate favorites reign in my week three picks just like my week two picks. Obviously I have learned nothing.
home team in bold
Indianapolis Colts (-3.5) over Tennessee Titans
Andrew Luck caught in the middle of Chuck Pagano/Ryan Grigson feud. Secondary a shambles due to injuries. Decision to spend money on Frank Gore and Andre Johnson instead of veteran offensive linemen, defensive front 7 talent proving to be a horrible mistake. Yet the Colts still seem to be guaranteed a playoff spot because of their weak division.
Baltimore Ravens (-2.5) over Cincinnati Bengals
Ravens simply can't afford to start the season with three straight losses including a home divisional loss.
Houston Texans (-6.5) over Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Reasoning here in taking the Texans is the same as the Ravens pick. Bucs got their first win last weekend in New Orleans with me picking against them. Two in a row seems like a bit much.
New York Giants (-2) over Atlanta Falcons LOSS
Philadelphia Eagles (-5) over Dallas Cowboys LOSS
New Orleans Saints (-9.5) over Tampa Bay Buccaneers LOSS
Best Bets: 0-2, Overall: 2-4
