The 2019 NFL season is now three weeks old and we still really have no clue as to what teams are what and who is going to beat New England.
With two weeks completed in the NFL season and week three finishing up on Monday night, it is time for our weekly predictions. Have there been any improvements over the first two weeks? Not for the teams, for me. I’m kind of thinking I should tank the rest of the season so no one expects anything from me.
In week one I got 14 picks right and in week two I was able to get a measly nine right. I didn’t pick the Saints and Rams game because I missed it somehow but I probably would have gone with the Saints so I chalked that one up as a loss.
Through two weeks now I stand at 23 – 9. Good enough to keep pace in an office pool but I wouldn’t be banking on my picks right now to thrown money down with a bookie. Here are this week’s predictions.
Miami at Dallas: The Cowboys have to be salivating at the prospect of scoring 40 points against a Dolphins team that has given up 59 and 43 points each of the first two weeks. Miami will hope to put up more than 10 points.
Bengals at Bills: The Bills are playing good football while the Bengals only played good football in week one. Things are starting to settle down for the Bengals.
Lions at Eagles: The Lions are a mild surprise through two weeks with one win and one tie. The Eagles, however, are 1-1 and trying to keep pace with the Cowboys who are unblemished. They should be able to pull this one out.
Jets at Patriots: This will be fun to watch if for no other reason to watch Adam Gase’s facial expressions. The question is not who will win this game, it is who will Adam Gase pin the loss on?
Falcons at Colts: The Colts are not playing bad despite losing Andrew Luck to retirement and the Falcons are playing their typical “Jekyll and Hyde” season. This game could be pretty good.
Raiders at Vikings: I’m not sure who the Vikings are or want to be this year honestly but I do know the Raiders are a mixed bag of nothing.
Ravens at Chiefs: This could be the game of the week but heavy rain is forecast throughout the game and even if it is light rain it could impact the passing attacks of both teams. This is a showdown of young QB’s that could be the next great NFL QB’s.
Winner: Chiefs in a close one
Broncos at Packers: The Packers are winning but don’t look like a team heading to the Super Bowl. The Broncos don’t really look like anything.
Panthers at Cardinals: The Panthers should have beat the Buccaneers last week and the Cardinals are a poorer version of the Buc’s. If the Panthers lose today they have a lot of issues.
Giants at Buccaneers: Does anyone really care about how this game unfolds? Probably not outside of their respective fanbase.
Saints at Seahawks: When the NFL made this schedule, the Drew Brees vs. Russell Wilson was a really good idea. Now it’s Teddy Bridgewater instead of Brees. It makes a difference.
Texans at Chargers: The Texans are really good but play inconsistently. The Chargers want to be really good but stand in the shadow of the Chiefs.
Steelers at 49’ers: A week ago this was an easy pick. Now with Ben Roethlisberger out for the year, it is still an easy pick, just a different team.
Rams at Browns: We should be able to create emojis for articles. Like a deadpan face wearing a Browns helmet. The Browns beat the Jets and their road to the media-hyped Super Bowl is another year or two away.
Bears at Redskins: Outside of fantasy football rosters and their own fanbase, it might be better to spend time with the wife or husband after a long weekend of football.
