2009 NFL Week 3 – Spring’s Picks

Getting Ready For Week 3

So Week 3 begins and hopefully we’re out of the Twilight Zone. The Eagles will still be struggling without McNab. Tennessee is still feeling the sting of their loss last week going into NY where the Jets have home field advantage. While the Jets are flying high from their win over New England. I think this is the emotional game of the week and the Jets will have the advantage. New England has something to prove in Atlanta and I think they’ll do just that. Miami should easily take San Diego in California. And Indianapolis proved to themselves last week that they can come back and win on someone else’s home field, so I expect they’ll take Arizona with relative ease. Though it may not be as easy as they think, Arizona is showing they have some skills this year.

On Monday, I expect Dallas to come back on their home field angry and feeling they have something to prove. I love that they lost their home opener in the “Palace in Dallas” that Jerry built to his own ego. But I think that sting of defeat on their home opener, and in their new stadium with all it’s hype; well over hype if you ask me; has their blood boiling and they’ll take Carolina.

So here’s the picks for the week from me. Hopefully it’s not a continuation of last weeks miserable picks.
