NFL Pick’off – Week 3

22 (1)

Want to find out the winning formula for NFL Sunday?

Week 3 has arrived and if Thursday’s game between the Rams and the 49ers is any indication, we’re in for a wild ride.

Buckle up.

For each Sunday’s games I make my selections “Straight-Up” (SU) and “Against The Spread” (ATS).

The team listed in bold is the straight up pick, where as the red +/- indicates the pick when including the Vegas line at the time of publication.

I’ll provide a brief sentence or two of nonsense or logic (depending on the outcome), for what led me to that choice.

I’ll be competing against Catch-22’s NFL Senior Editor (Mark Staniusz) throughout the season, and I will list his picks below.

Ja-ja-jah-coby Brissett.

Pittsburgh (-7) @ Chicago

Gambling 101: The Bears played tough at home against the Falcons in Week 1. FACT: The Falcons are not an outdoor team. The Steelers, who are an outdoor team, should be able to take care of business in the Windy City. What more do you need to know?

Miami (-6) @ New York Jets

Push it to the limit (Limit)… No one left to stand in your way… You might get careless, but you’ll never be safe… While you’re still in it…

Denver (-3) @ Buffalo

And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high, I’ve seen it raining fire in the sky. The shadows from the starlight are softer than a lullaby. Rocky Mountain high, Colorado. Rocky Mountain high.

Houston (+14) @ New England

Houston, we might have a problem.

New Orleans (+5.5) @ Carolina 

But the cat came back the very next day, the cat came back, we thought he was a goner, but the cat came back… It just couldn’t stay away.

Tampa Bay (-2.5) @ Minnesota

Did you know that Vikings QB Case Keenum was undrafted? He went to Wylie High School in Albeline, Texas. True story. Did you know the Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston was the 1st overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft? Good talk.

Atlanta @ Detroit (+3)

The Lions are waaaaay off script and about to escape the matrix. This is a narrative game. Lions win and flip the entire script of the NFC. Don’t say I didn’t warn ya.

New York Giants @ Philadelphia (-6)


Seattle @ Tennessee (-2.5)

Has the clock stuck midnight for the Seahawks? I guess we’ll find out on Sunday.

Kansas City (-3) @ Los Angles Chargers

Take the money and run. (No seriously, take the money and run).

Cincinnati @ Green Bay (-8)

This won’t end well for the Bengals. It usually doesn’t. Cincy winning here would be the most shocking result of the weekend.

Oakland (-3) @ Washington

Wyatt disappeared while out on maneuvers. He came back with some strange ideas. He claimed this land didn’t belong to the old natives or the new settlers, that it belonged to something that had yet to come… That it belonged to him.

2017 Season: 18-8 (SU) / 11-15 (ATS)
