Among other issues, Cousins has now taken a safety in each of his first two games. Brown hamstring. After a rousing season-opening upset of the Eagles in Week 1 , Washington came back down to Earth in a Week 2 thrashing at the hands of the Cardinals. For their part, the Browns got in the win column for the first time against the Bengals on Thursday night.
Their win was actually more convincing than the final score would indicate. The pair combined for rushing yards and four scores. QB Baker Mayfield had a solid performance, especially compared to his Week 1 effort against the Ravens. The third-year signal-caller tossed a pair of touchdowns — including a memorable one to Odell Beckham — although Mayfield was guilty of another interception. Both teams are , but the Browns are currently heavy favorites, a line that could potentially be bet down.
This conference clash features a pair of teams with records that are a bit misleading. Meanwhile, the Falcons needed an all-time collapse in the fourth quarter Sunday against the Cowboys to snatch a defeat from the jaws of victory. As of Sunday morning, the Falcons are 2-point favorites despite Julio Jones now being out for the game with a hamstring injury.
This AFC vs. NFC battle has an interesting backdrop. Meanwhile, the Eagles are increasingly desperate at and have issues on both sides of the ball. Joe Burrow and company have been close on the scoreboard in both games thus far. However, Cincinnati kept fighting long enough to notch their final touchdown with under a minute remaining.
Burrow had his first breakout effort as well, throwing for yards and three touchdowns. The blown Week 1 lead against the Washington Football Team was bad enough, but the Eagles looked even worse against a higher caliber of opponent in the visiting Rams on Sunday. The fifth-year QB is averaging a career-low 6.
Then, Jared Goff found success at will Sunday to the tune of a Notably, oddsmakers are still affording the Eagles a fair amount of deference, although the spread has narrowed over the course of the week and Philly will be without rookie Jalen Reagor thumb in addition to the still-to-debut Alshon Jeffery foot. The Steelers appear to still be getting their collective feet under them, yet have been talented enough to notch a pair of season-opening wins against inferior opponents.
The Texans have drawn the short straw schedule-wise. Houston kept it fairly competitive for three quarters Sunday against Baltimore but still suffered a double-digit loss. However, Ben Roethlisberger was able to hit a pair of his emerging receivers in Diontae Johnson and Chase Claypool for touchdowns. James Conner also bounced back from his Week 1 ankle issue to notch yards on just 16 carries. The Patriots will have a rest advantage on Las Vegas for this contest. New England conducted their Week 2 business Sunday night against the Seahawks in Seattle and came up short by a margin.
New England kept it as competitive as the final score implies, scoring its final TD with still remaining. The fact eight of his completions and of his passing yards went to WR Julian Edelman also speaks volumes to the burgeoning chemistry between the two. Conversely, of concern is the five passing TDs New England allowed to Russell Wilson on a wide variety of routes and depths of target. Looming large for this coming week and beyond is the fact Carolina has lost RB Christian McCaffrey for weeks with a high-ankle sprain.
The Chargers will be turning to Herbert again in this game. All told, the sixth overall pick was a hit with yards, a touchdown and an interception Sunday. New York came into Week 2 missing multiple key players and then saw starting WR Breshad Perriman exit a loss to the 49ers with an ankle sprain that will cause him to miss Week 3. The Colts were able to atone for a heartbreaking Week 1 loss to the Jaguars with an impressive dismantling of the Vikings during which they picked off and sacked Kirk Cousins three times apiece including a safety while holding him to yards passing.
Perriman was operating as a speed threat and No. Fellow wideout Chris Hogan suffered a rib injury against San Fran, while Jamison Crowder missed the contest with a hamstring injury. He finished with rushing yards and a touchdown against Minnesota. Both players were placed on IR this week. Still, the state of the Jets is such that Indy opened the week as the biggest favorite of the slate by far.
The Cowboys mounted a furious comeback against the Falcons to escape with a miracle win that included a memorable onside kick recovery and a game-winning FG by Greg Zuerlein as time expired. The Seahawks were able to get to with a second consecutive offensive explosion to start the season. The absence of Pro Bowl left tackle Tyron Smith due to a neck injury played a part. His return for Week 3 would be especially valuable in such a difficult matchup. The defense certainly has some concerns as well after suffering multiple injuries over the first two week and surrendering four TD passes to Matt Ryan in Week 2.
The Seahawks have given up plenty of points in their first two games but have managed to outscore their opponents largely with MVP-caliber play from Wilson. Two games into , the Lions have already mastered the art of losing by blowing leads both early and late.
I think what I'm trying to say here is that this game is going to be a shootout. Unfortunately for the Cowboys, this game is being played at Seattle in the month of September, which I'm only mentioning because the Seahawks pretty much never lose at home in the month of September. Since Pete Carroll was hired in , the Seahawks have gone in September home games.
I have no idea why the Seahawks are so unbeatable in September home games, but if I've learned one thing during my life, it's that I don't need to understand something to appreciate it. I mean, I've never really understood the plot of any movie that Christopher Nolan has ever made, but I still appreciate them.
I was thinking about seeing Tenet, but I still don't even know what happened in Memento, and that came out in Once I figure that out, I'll allow myself to watch another one. For some reason, out of all the games in Week 3, this one intrigues me the most and that's mostly because I still have no idea what to make of Green Bay.
The thing about the Packers is that I'm still not exactly sure how good they are this year. To be clear, they're definitely good, I just don't know how good. In Week 1, they beat the Vikings in a game that told me nothing, because it was against the Vikings. I mean, have you seen the Vikings play this year? It's like watching the NFC's version of the Jets. In Week 2, they trailed the Lions before mounting an absurd comeback and winning the game , and I'm still trying to decide if I'm more worried by the fact that they trailed by double digits against DETROIT or if I'm more impressed that they outscored the Lions over the final three quarters.
I think what's happening here is that I'm trying really hard to talk myself out of picking the Packers, but I can't do it, and that's mainly because of Aaron Rodgers. I don't know if it's because his team tried to draft his replacement or if it's because he went on that tequila bender during the offseason, but Rodgers has been unstoppable this year. He's averaging more than yards passing per game, he's only taken one sack and he hasn't thrown a single interception. The man has no weaknesses and I'm not picking against someone who has no weaknesses.
Also, whatever the fountain of youth is, I think Drew Brees has found the opposite of it. Brees looked horrible against the Raiders on Monday and I'm not sure he's going to look any better against the Packers. The biggest problem for Brees is that there's a very real chance that Michael Thomas isn't going to be playing on Sunday night.
With Thomas playing, Brees has a record with a In 2 games without Thomas since he was drafted, Brees is now with a I wish I could wait until Friday to turn in my pick for this game, that way I would know whether or not Thomas will be on the field. I'd also know if Davante Adams is going to play, which isn't a guarantee since he injured his hamstring in Week 2. If either one of those guys is out, that would be a huge enough loss that might be enough to make me change my pick. As for now, I'm going to assume that Adams will be playing and that Thomas probably won't.
Of course, I'm not a doctor, so please do not take that as fact. That being said, I did pull out my own stitches once, so I'm practically halfway to being a doctor. Monday, p. I'm not usually one to tell people what to do with their lives, but if you have a plan in place for Monday night that doesn't involve watching this game, you should definitely cancel that plan so you can watch this game.
And before you start to feel bad about canceling plans with someone, let me just say that the best part about canceling plans during a pandemic is that there's no guilt associated with it. You can literally make up any excuse you want. Friend 1: Hey man, I know we were going to meet for a drink on Monday night, but I have to cancel on you. Friend 2: Oh, that sucks. What happened? Friend 2: You're in a vegetable club? I don't even know what that is. Friend 1 : Ha! You don't know what it is? It's a club where we meet and talk about vegetables every week.
We get most of our recipes from that cookbook Russell Wilson wrote with Guy Fieri. Friend 2: Seriously? I think I've actually read that, it's called "Let Russ Cook," right? I love that book, just made the spinach empanadas last week. Anyway, sad that we won't be able to hang out on Monday night. Maybe next week. Now that I've convinced everyone that they need to watch this game, let's talk about the actual game.
I'm actually going to cut straight to the point here, which is mildly surprising, because I never cut straight to the point. I'm going to pick the Chiefs. My problem with the Ravens is that they never seem to win big games. I know that sounds crazy, but I'll go ahead and point to four instances: They're in playoff games with Lamar Jackson and they're against the Chiefs with Lamar Jackson.
In all four of those losses for Baltimore, the same thing happened: The winning team took a big lead into the second half, which forced the Ravens out of their offensive element. Last year against the Chiefs, the Ravens trailed in the third quarter and then had to play catch up the rest of the game. In the playoff loss to the Titans , Baltimore trailed in the third quarter and then had to play catch-up the rest of the game.
The Ravens are good at getting a lead and then using their run game to stomp on your throat. They're not so good at playing from behind, which hasn't been a problem, because they're so much better than almost every other team in the NFL that they rarely have to play from behind. As a matter of fact, the Ravens only trailed at the half in three games last year, and yup, they lost all three games Chiefs, Browns , Titans.
On the other hand, the Chiefs have no issues playing from behind. As a matter of fact, they're actually so good at playing from behind that they've won six straight games where they trailed by double digits at some point, which is an NFL record. Anyway, I think the Chiefs are going to jump out to an early lead and then hold on to dear life for victory. Also, I would like to note that Patrick Mahomes has never lost a game during the month of September.
If I was smart, the lock of the week would just be me picking against the Jets every week, but that's too easy, and I hate easy, which is why I don't ever read the instructions to anything. You know who else hates easy? Bill Belichick. At least he seems like someone who would. After watching his defense get diced up by Russell Wilson on Sunday, Belichick is probably celebrating the fact that he gets to play the Raiders this week and that's mostly because Derek Carr is not Russell Wilson.
Look, there are some quarterbacks who always seem to struggle against Belichick and Carr is one of them. In two career games against the Patriots, not only is Carr , but his team has never even hit the point mark They scored eight and nine points in the two losses. The Raiders have had trouble scoring against New England because Carr has been bad against the Patriots, with just one TD pass and two interceptions in those two games.
One of the things that Belichick does best is exploit the opposing quarterbacks weaknesses, and let me just say, Carr has a lot of weaknesses to exploit. I think what I'm trying to say here is that I don't see Carr having any success against New England this week. This game just feels like it has all the makings of a Raiders disaster: They're coming off an emotional win on Monday where they opened their new stadium, and now, they have to fly across the country on a short week to play an early game against a Patriots team that's coming off a loss.

CO Gambling problem? Call I went undefeated in my Week 1 locks and got swept in Week 2 thanks, Vikings offense. Jake got swept in Week 1 but was profitable in Week 2. As for Philadelphia, they have to start to figure this out sometime, right?
It should be a cloudy degree day at kickoff and I expect both offenses to have success. The Falcons are the worst defense in the NFL in terms of points allowed this season and second worst in yards allowed. The Bears offense may not be high-powered, but it looks competent this season and they should have plenty of success indoors against this defense.
Calvin Ridley looks like a star, Russell Gage is so underrated, and Matt Ryan is one of the most underappreciated players in football.
