Week 3 Picks
Last Week: 3-0
Atlanta -3 vs. Chicago
The Falcons collapsed big-time last week in Big D, losing late on a FG. Back home this week, playing a Bears team that's riding high, after opening the season with two wins. Fortunes reverse this week, it's the NFL, so the bounces eventually even out, and both Falcons and Bears should move to the mean this week.
Packers +3 at New Orleans
The Saints come off a loss in Las Vegas on Monday Night, and have to deal with the Packers on a short week. Aaron Rodgers maybe without Davante Adams, who'll be a game time decision. There should be plenty of fire power for Rodgers, who's thrown for 604 yards and 6 TD in the first two weeks. Aaron Jones had a big win last week in a game against Detroit.
Broncos +6 vs. Tampa Bay
You know I love the home dogs. Everything says Denver is dead to rights in this one. They're struggling, they're banged up, and they're playing Tom Brady! They've got the Bucs right where they want them. Look for an ugly, punchy game, which the Bucs pull out late, maybe with Rob Gronkowski making a play, but the Broncos should be able to play around the number, at home.
