Saints head coach Sean Peyton has never started 0-3 with the team, and that probably won’t change this week.
Indianapolis Colts – Takeaways from Colts/Eagles
New Orleans Saints – Preview of Saints/Vikings
Chicago Bears – Bears upset 49ers in Week 2
Two surprising teams remain winless – the Indianapolis Colts and the New Orleans Saints. Thankfully, the NFL schedule has its own checks and balances that have virtually ensured wins for those two teams this week.
Here are the picks for NFL week 3 action:
San Diego Chargers over Buffalo Bills – This has let down written all over it for the Chargers, but ultimately the Bills will probably win the award for biggest letdown this week.
Dallas Cowboys over St. Louis Rams – Still looking for proof that the Rams can beat a legitimate team with their hot mess of an offense.
Philadelphia Eagles over Washington Redskins – The Redskins “No. 1 defense” is going to be put to the test by a real NFL offense.
Indianapolis Colts over Jacksonville Jaguars – Nervous that this game is on the road, but Jacksonville still can’t put a game away while Colts QB Andrew Luck is one of the best at that.
New Orleans Saints over Minnesota Vikings – Could the Saints have gotten a better team to enter the Week 0-2 against?
Cincinnati Bengals over Tennessee Titans – The Bengals are one of the top 3 teams in the AFC right now. The Titans are the 3rd best team in the worst division in football.
Baltimore Ravens over Cleveland Browns – Nothing energizes the Ravens more than playing against a team with a weak offense.
Green Bay Packers over Detroit Lions – It took 6 quarters, but the Packers finally came back to life and are ready for a title push.
New England Patriots over Oakland Raiders – The Patriots defense will feast on this hapless Raider offense – and Tom Brady will pick this team apart as a result.
New York Giants over Houston Texas – A bit of an upset in this one, but heads will roll in Big Blue if they can’t at least beat the Texans.
San Francisco 49ers over Arizona Cardinals – No way the 49ers lose to a backup QB and Ted Ginn the way the Giants did.
Seattle Seahawks over Denver Broncos – Home field advantage makes all the difference.
Kansas City Chiefs over Miami Dolphins – Most people think the Chiefs are just bad and the Dolphins can beat anyone with Ryan Tannehill at QB – maybe they’re right, but maybe the Chiefs just got dealt a bad starting schedule.
Carolina Panthers over Pittsburgh Steelers – What do you get when a terrible offense meets an incredible defense? A Panthers win.
Chicago Bears over New York Jets – Matchup nightmares for the Jets defense leave room for the Bears to run wild on Monday Night Football.
