PIGSKIN 2012: Football Sunday - Week Three

Season Results
Week Two Record:  6-8-1
Overall Record:  10-18-1
Schmear of the Week:  0-2
Bagels in the Basket:  -15
WEEK TWO - I correctly predicted a push last week in the Browns/Bengals game.  Wow, the Saints defense really sucks.
Lets roll some bagels.
Friday Line ~ NYDN
Jets -2 1/2 (DOLPHINS)
I'm giving the edge to the Jets defense and Offensive Coordinator Tony Sparano.  If the Jets are playing up and down football, it stands to reason then, this is their up week.
WIN  23-20; Jets
BEARS -7 (Rams)
Tough call.  This is a job for the Bears defense.  The Rams are playing better than expected.  Home field advantage prevails.
WIN 23-6; Bears
COWBOYS -7 (Bucs)
Can Josh Freeman do to Jerry Jones' $50 million dollar Corners what he did to the Giants Corners when they met?  Doubtful.  Dallas is still too talented not to have a bounce back week.  Riiiight.
LOSS 16-10; Cowboys
49ers -6 1/2 (VIKINGS)
For the second consecutive season, the 49ers are looking like the most balanced team in Football.
LOSS 24-13; Vikings
TITANS +3 1/2 (Lions)
The Lions haven't been playing up to the respect I gave them based off last season.  I like the home team getting points.  That half tick speaks to me.
WIN 44-41; Titans
Bengals +3 (REDSKINS)
This is the fourth best match up of the week.  WooHooo!  It is also the upset game of the week.  Does RG3 have a name?
WIN 38-31; Bengals
SAINTS -9 (Chiefs)
Deep down inside, I want to take the Chiefs.  It seems the Saints are in deep trouble.  But I will stick with the book and say with or without their head coach, the Saints are a different team at home.
LOSS 27-24; Chiefs
Bills -3 (BROWNS)
Loser Alert! Loser Alert!  Just so you know, I originally picked the Browns, and changed my mind.  That means I am getting this one wrong no matter what.
WIN 24-14; Bills
COLTS -3 (Jaguars)
The Colts seem to have a little-bit-o-Luck working for them.  And who are the Jaguars anyway?
LOSS 22-7; Jaguars
Eagles -3 1/2 (CARDINALS)
There is a time in every team's season when Parity grabs them by the footballs and squeezes.  After defeating the Patriots last week, the Cardinals cough in week three.
LOSS 27-6; Cardinals
CHARGERS -3 (Falcons)
I declare this the game of the week.  I see two teams desperate to win playoff games after knocking on the door for several years and failing.  The Dirty Birds are disadvantaged for having to fly to the Left Coast, and I think Phillip Rivers is just better than Matt Ryan; period.
LOSS 27-3; Falcons
Texans -2 1/2 (BRONCOS)
Number Two match up of the week.  It is the rare occasion a visiting team is favored in Mile High.  It is more stunning when Peyton Manning is the QB of the Broncos.  I like what Vegas is thinking.
WIN 31-25; Texans
Steelers -4 (RAIDERS)
The Raiders have more problems than a math book.  I thought they would be better this season.  So far..., not.  Steelers hit the road feeling good after beating the Jets last week.
LOSS 34-31; Raiders
RAVENS -3 (Patriots)
Great match up Number Three.  All teams skid off the road at some point.  Maybe it is finally the Patriots turn to suffer for a week or two, or three.
LOSS 31-30; Ravens
Packers -3 1/2 (SEAHAWKS)
Worst match up the week!  I really really want to take the Seahawks at home.  They are spoilers even as early as September.
LOSS 14-12; Seahawks
Jets -2 1/2
Week Three Record:   5-9
Overall Record:   15-27-1
Schmear of the Week:   1-2
BAGELS in the Basket:   -16
Happy Football Sunday everyone.  May your chicken wings be spicy.
