Week 3 NFL picks

Here are my picks for Week 3:

San Francisco over Kansas City -- Come on, this team is much better than its record shows. General Singletary gets the soldiers marching in the right direction this week.

Minnesota over Detroit -- Even a rusty, old, beat up Brett Favre can get a win against the Lions.

New England over Buffalo -- They're playing the Bills.

New Orleans over Atlanta -- This will be a good one, but this Saints team just knows how to win.

Giants over Tennessee -- Eli struggled with big bro, but he will get back on track this week.

Baltimore over Cleveland -- Ray Ray and them Ravens mad as heck. Bad timing for the Browns.

Dallas over Houston -- Even though I believe Houston is better, Dallas can't lose three in a row. Even with me picking Dallas, I hope the Cowboys lose.

Pittsburgh over Tampa -- As long as Troy has his hair I think it's safe to say Samson and co. will prevail.

Cincinnati over Carolina -- Clausen is starting now for Carolina. Hmmmm. Scratching my head. He's not ready.

Philadelphia over Jacksonville -- Vick to start. Did you see those old legs last week? I don't mean old in age, either. I mean them "ATL" legs.

Redskins over St. Louis -- Another rookie QB. Man, Rack and Landry will tear him apart. They say a package came in the mail to Redskins Park. Label read "Running Game." Let's see if the box is open on Sunday.

Indianapolis over Denver -- Peyton is back in rhythm and so is the rest of this Colts team. No Tebow, no go.

Arizona over Oakland -- Raiders. They're playing the Raiders! Come on, I know they beat the Rams by two points, but they are the Raiders, people. The Raiders!

San Diego over Seattle -- The Seahawks shocked me when they beat the Niners, but the Chargers aren't playing that game. That young RB Mathews is a gangster on the field.

Jets over Miami -- I see Miami having a good day, making some plays, but it won't be good enough. The Jets got a huge confidence-builder with the whooping they put on the Pats.

Green Bay over Chicago -- This will be the most entertaining game to watch. The Pac will pull this one out.

Survivor: Vikings. Again, I say: "Even a rusty, old, beat up Brett Favre can get a win against the Lions." This is a safe survivor pick.

For SD Matthews is hurt and out this week. The Raiders are steering Graskowski and McFadden is running the ball pretty good right now, if they feed him the ball an he gets more touches than Bush Raiders pull it out.

A Cowgirl loss would be my third Christmas gift this year. HTTR!

Good picks but Dallas will lose to the Texans, Coach will get fired, and Texans are going to the Super Bowl in Dallas - how ironic is that!!!

I think there are actually quite a few safe survivor picks this week: Redskins, Bengals, Patriots, Colts.....but I'm going with Baltimore.

The Niners are absolutely terrible on the road. They would win this game easily at home but they lose this game in KC. They will bounce back to finish at 8-8 which will be good enough to win their awful division.

even though he picked the redskins, he still had something negative to say about them... I also tried watching his video and i had to turn it off after about 30 seconds. not only were his hits painful, so is his webcam

I believe Rak had fun smacking Braford around a lot when the Texas always played the Sooners. Looking for Orakpo to have at least 3 sacks, he knows him too well... and yeah I forgot Landry "The wrecking ball" too, Skins will finish with 6 sacks on this $50M QB, bye bye Bradford

SKINS 31 Rams 7

I don't like the 49er pick. They're nearly as over rated as the Cowgals..
