Cincinnati Bengals by 3 at the Carolina Panthers
The Bengals beat a beat the Ravens last week with a strong defensive output. The Panthers are 0-2 with -26 net points and a rookie QB having his first NFL start. This should be a no problem for the Bengals. Cincinnati take this one by 10 and CedBen gets back on track.
Minnesota Vikings by 11 at home over the Detroit Lions
The Vikings, with the exception of Adrian Peterson, have looked awful so far this season yet are favored by a ton over a Lions team that have lost their games by a total 8 points. I expect AD to have a huge game against the lowly Lions but 11 points are ridiculous considering how awful the Vikings/Favre has played. For my upset pick of the week I will take the Lions over the Vikings by a field goal.
Houston Texans by 2.5 at home over the Dallas Cowboys
After dominating the Colts in Week 1 the Cowboys squeaked by the Redskins last week and showed that the Texans can win on ground or through the air. Dallas is a team in trouble. It is difficult to win putting up 13 points a game and they definitely won’t this week against the high powered Texans offense. Romo is going to be running for his life this week as the Cowboys go to 0-3. Houston by 10.
Philadelphia Eagles by 2.5 at the Jacksonville Jaguars
The Eagles look to have a strong running game always have 2 runningbacks on the field at the same time. Last week their passing game showed too. The Jaguars looked strong against the Broncos in Week 1 and then came crashing down last week when they were destroyed by the Chargers. This week MJD gets no room to run and the Eagles crush the Jags. Philly by 2 touchdowns.
For my eliminator I will take the Baltimore Ravens over the terrible Cleveland Browns.
