NFL Week 3 Round-Up

The downside of being behind is that you have to take some risky picks to try and make up ground, and if those picks don't pay off you end up even further behind.

Patriots at Bills
The Wife: Patriots
Me: Patriots
Steve: Patriots
WINNER: Bills ("this could be an upset" I suggested . . . so why didn't I pick them?)

49ers at Bengals
The Wife: Bengals
Me: Bengals
Steve: 49ers
WINNER: 49ers (I feel like any games involving either of these two teams this year will be a snoozefest)

Dolphins at Browns
The Wife: Dolphins
Me: Browns
Steve: Dolphins
WINNER: Browns (glad for the win, but both of the Browns' victories have been narrow wins over teams that are each now 0-3 . . . for some reason, although they have some name-players now, their offense still struggles to score)

Broncos at Titans
The Wife: Titans
Steve: Titans
Me: Titans
WINNER: Titans (traveling to Cleveland for week 4 and looking better than most would have expected, especially with C.J. not producing much)

Lions at Vikings
The Wife: Lions
Me: Lions
Steve: Lions

Texans at Saints
The Wife: Saints
Me: Texans
Steve: Saints
WINNER: Saints (my "upset special" looked good for some minutes in the fourth quarter . . .)

Giants at Eagles
The Wife: Eagles
Me: Eagles
Steve: Giants
WINNER: Giants

Jags at Panthers
The Wife: Panthers
Me: Panthers
Steve: Panthers
WINNER: Panthers (sounds like Gabbert looked okay . . . so far, all the rookie QBs who are playing seem to be off to good starts, which was unexpected given the lock-out . . . maybe coaches make far too much of OTAs, mini-camps and long training camps?)

Chiefs at Chargers
The Wife: Chargers
Me: Chargers
Steve: Chargers
WINNER: Chargers

Jets at Raiders
The Wife: Jets
Me: Raiders
Steve: Jets
WINNER: Raiders

Ravens at Rams
The Wife: Ravens
Me: Rams
Steve: Ravens
WINNER: Ravens

Cardinals at Seahawks
The Wife: Cardinals
Me: Cardinals
Steve: Cardinals
WINNER: Seahawks (and here I thought the Cardinals were the best team in a bad division . . .)

Falcons at Bucs
The Wife: Bucs
Me: Falcons
Steve: Bucs
WINNER: Bucs (many people thought this team would regress just like the Chiefs, but so far so good with a Monday night game next week against the hapless Colts coming up . . .)

Packers at Bears
The Wife: Packers
Me: Packers
Steve: Packers
WINNER: Packers

Steelers at Colts
The Wife: Steelers
Me: Steelers
Steve: Steelers
WINNER: Steelers (Colts made it close due to defense)

Redskins at Cowboys
The Wife: Redskins
Me: Cowboys
Steve: Redskins
WINNER: Cowboys


The Wife: 9-7
Me: 9-7
Steve: 11-5


The Wife: 29-19
Me: 27-21
Steve: 31-17
