NFL Week 3 Game Picks


I’m putting on my prognostication hat, staring into my crystal ball, and predicting the winners each week throughout the NFL season. Contributing writer Ryan Hannable is now joining me in the game prognostications, so feel free to pick against us in the Comments section. Last week, I was 12-4 in my picks, pushing my record to 20-11 on the season.

Let’s get right to the picks from Ryan and I, including our Patriots-Bills prediction…

Put It In The Bank

  • JP: Steelers over the Colts. Can anyone bet on the Colts winning right now? 
  • RH: Ravens over the Rams. After an impressive win in week one over the Steelers, the Ravens struggled last week against the Titans. Look for them to bounce back and move to 2-1.

Upset Special

  • JP: Buccaneers over the Falcons. After a big win against Philly, the Falcons come back down to earth as the Buccs take one in Tampa.
  • RH: Vikings over the Lions. Although the Vikings are 2-0 and the Lions are 0-2 I see the Vikings pulling out the victory. The Vikings have too many talented players to fall to 0-3.
