NFL Week 3 Predictions

After a very successful week one, I definitely experienced a drop off week two. A .500 record in week two brings my season average down to 65%. Injuries killed me week two as the Eagles, Saints, and many other picks I believed in fell short because of them. Many of my confident picks – for example, the Bengals, Panthers, and Titans – let me down, and I underestimated the Packers and Bills. Week 3 offers plenty of intriguing matchups including the Ravens vs. Chiefs, Rams vs. Browns, and Texans vs. Saints. This week should be a great opportunity to get back on track and move my record above 75% on the season. Check out my picks below:
