NFL Picks and Predictions – Week 3

CHARLOTTE, NC - NOVEMBER 17: Luke Kuechly /

Welcome to week three of the NFL season.  Here is some analysis and picks on each game for the week.  NFL Picks and Predictions – Week 3

NFL Picks – Saints vs Panthers

This is an NFC South division rivalry game.  The Saints are 0-2, but if they win this game then it gets them right back into contention.  However, the Saints are going up against the one of the best defenses in the NFL, so getting the win on the road won’t be easy.

Cam Newton is listed as questionable for the game with an ankle injury but is expected to play.  Luke Kuechly and the Panthers defense is just too strong and the offense will do just enough to get a tough division win at home.

Winner:   Panthers

Score prediction:       23-16  Panthers  

Points spread:      Panthers  -5.5

Over/under:  46 – Under

NFL Picks – Seahawks vs Titans

Both teams will try to run the football.  However, the Titans are only one of the two that’s done it consistently so far this season.  And this is a good matchup of quarterbacks with Russell Wilson facing off against Marcus Mariota.

This game will be predicated on defense, However, the Titans offense as a whole is playing better than the Seahawks’.  It’s also a home game for the Titans and they have the advantage.  Titans win in a close one.

Winner:   Titans

Score prediction:       20-19  Titans  

Points spread:      Titans  -2.5

Over/under:  41 – Under

NFL Picks
ATLANTA, GA – SEPTEMBER 17: Aaron Rodgers /

NFL Picks – Bengals vs Packers

The Packers are coming off a bad loss in week 2 and the Bengals haven’t played well at all so far this season.  I think the Bengals will get their first touchdown of the season, but it won’t be enough to win.

Aaron Rodgers and the Packers will bounce back from the loss to the Falcons and get the win at home in week 3 over the Bengals.

Winner:   Packers

Score prediction:       27-19  Packers 

Points spread:      Packers  -7.5

Over/under:  46.5 – Under

NFL Picks
KANSAS CITY, MO – SEPTEMBER 17: Tight end Travis Kelce /

NFL Picks – Chiefs vs Chargers

Two AFC West rivals tangle in week 3.  The Chiefs have started the season 2-0 and their offense led by quarterback Alex Smith playing well.  The Chargers are 0-2 but have only lost both games by a combined 5 points.

So the difference between each team isn’t a far a some might think.  However, the Chiefs are on a hot streak and I think it continues on the road in week 3.  Chiefs win a close one.

Winner:   Chiefs

Score prediction:       24-20  Chiefs  

Points spread:      Chiefs  -3.0

Over/under:  47.5 – Under
