2010 NFL Predictions- Week 3

Things went a bit more back to form last week as using last years stats went 12-4 straight up. ATS was a somewhat respectable 9-7. The record on the year is 19-13 SU and 14-18 ATS. This is the last week I'll be using last years stats as Ill begin the transition to the new numbers in week 4.

RAVENS (-10.5) over Browns- After the drubbing they take this weekend the Mangini talk is going to heat up. The Browns schedule gave them a great chance to open 2-0, but they are winless. Ravens romp in home opener. Ravens 31 Browns 7

PANTHERS (+3.5) over Bengals- It's a road game, it's the Bengals, and they are favored…none of those factors make the Bengals attractive. The Bengals love these low scoring ugly games, which this should be. Carolina should not be as bad as they looked these last two weeks. Bengals 13 Panthers 10

Cowboys (+2.5) over TEXANS- If the Cowboys do not win this game I am not sure how the owner will react. 0-3 is no way to start if you want to win a Super Bowl. Dallas' offense looks all out of sync and the turnovers are killing relatively good defensive play. Houston is hot right now and probably does just enough to win, but not cover. Texans 19 Cowboys 17

49'ers (-1.5) over CHIEFS- Like Dallas, San Francisco is staring an 0-3 start in the face, though in their case the division is so bad it doesn't have nearly the same impact. Kansas City is a hard place to play, but even in losing last week I believe the 49'ers regained their confidence. 49ers 28 Chiefs 14

VIKINGS (-10.5) over Lions- This may be the toughest game to say will follow form from last year simply because the Vikings have been so bad offensively this season. The defense is playing as well as or better than they did in 2009, but the offense is terrible. They are desperate for a win here and maybe it all clicks this week. Vikings 40 Lions 14

PATRIOTS (-13.5) over Bills- How bad must things be for your team when your best hope for an offensive spark is to start Ryan Fitzpatrick? I have a feeling the Pats m.o. this year is going to be to have a tough time against good teams and pummel the bad ones, especially in Foxboro. The Bills are a bad team and the game is in Foxboro. Patriots 31 Bills 9

SAINTS (-5.5) over Falcons- This is a game that could signal a real shift in the balance of power of the NFC South. New Orleans have looked very vulnerable to start the year and Atlanta might be the second best team in the division. This has the makings of a high scoring game. Saints 31 Falcons 24

GIANTS (-2.5) over Titans- I'm not really sure what Jeff Fisher was doing by benching Vince Young last week, but I think doing so does not send a good signal to the team. New York did not even show up in Indianapolis. Looks like a pure home team wins kind of game and the G-men are home. Giants 27 Titans 23

STEELERS (-2.5) over Buccaneers- Who in the world would have ever thought that these two teams would be facing off in a battle of unbeaten teams in week 3? Pittsburgh is down to the 4th string QB, but I think we are all slowly seeing how the foundation they have in place is QB independent in regular season games so it should not make much a difference. This is a different class of team for Tampa. Steelers 24 Buccaneers 14

Eagles (-2.5) over JAGUARS- I don't quite understand how the Eagles nearly lost the game last week, but they should outclass Jacksonville in the same manner and will do a better job of holding the lead this time. Jacksonville is a bad team. Eagles 31 Jaguars 21

Redskins (-3.5) over RAMS- Washington lost a heartbreaker last week, but looks much improved over last season. A new coach and QB make a world of difference for a franchise when they are good. They could have a letdown game here and the Rams have looked better, but their opponents have been so bad its hard to see the Redskins losing. Redskins 24 Rams 10

CARDINALS (-4.5) over Raiders- Terrible game and I think most could see the outcome go either way. Arizona is living proof of why a QB is the most important part of the game. Cardinals 21 Raiders 16

Colts (-6.5) over BRONCOS- Indy seems to always beat this team. Denver actually did not play very well at home last season while the Colts were a pretty solid road team. Indy looks like they are right back in the swing of things after last weeks game. Colts 24 Broncos 14

SEAHAWKS (+5.5) over Chargers- San Diego already has one road loss under their belt and is a notorious slow starter under Norv Turner. Seattle is an extremely difficult place to play and this is the type of opponent the Chargers could take lightly. San Diego should still escape with a win, but it should be closer than people think. Chargers 23 Seahawks 20

Jets (+2.5) over DOLPHINS- Everyone is way down on the Dolphin offense right now, but last season there was a huge split between home and away so it would not be a stunner to see them put up points this week. Jets will be playing for revenge and are the better team. When these two teams meet it is always exciting. Jets 28 Dolphins 20

Packers (-2.5) over BEARS- Chicago gained a great deal of credibility when they beat Dallas last weekend, but Green Bay is just way too strong of a team for the Bears. They score too many points which will put Jay Cutler in a shootout which will lead to many mistakes. Packers 27 Bears 21
