Buy Panthers Tickets
Hey sports fans, T-Bone, Bruce and Chris here with our picks for the NFL slate this weekend. We’re going to keep track of these for bragging rights, so we’ll keep you updated each week with who’s in the lead and who doesn’t know as much as they think they may.
So here are the standings after our week two picks. T-Bone won the week going 11-5, Chris came in second at 9-7, and Bruce was big loser at 7-9. T-Bone remains in the lead at 21-11, followed by Chris at 17-15 and, Bruce at 16-16. Here are our picks for week three.
Thursday Night Game
Giants @ Panthers: No Bradshaw, and no Hakeem Nicks, add that to the fact that it’s the first time the Panthers have had a home prime time game since Saved by the Bell was popular, and we all are taking the Panthers.
Rams @ Bears: We expect the Bears to bounce back after last Thursday’s debacle, if not at least we can watch Jay Cutler chest bump some more of his offensive linemen.
Bills @ Browns: T-Bone and Bruce are taking Cleveland to get their first win of the season. Chris is circling the Buffalo wagon, along with the league leading rusher, CJ Spiller this week.
Buccaneers @ Cowboys: The Cowboys and Bucs are both coming off disappointing loses from last week. With that being said, the Cowboys are at home and it’s tough to win in the Taj Ma-Texas, we are all taking Dallas.
Lions @ Titans: The Titans have continued to look horrible and we all expect more of the same this week. Titans 0-3, everybody likes Detroit.
Jaguars @ Colts: Speaking of the Titans looking bad, pretty much everybody in the AFC South, but Houston, looks bad. The lesser of the bad teams is Indy, and we are all picking the Colts.
Jets @ Dolphins: Reggie Bush was running like it was 2005 in Southern Cal last week, which is why Chris and Bone are taking the Dolphins. Bruce has taken the Jets every week, why stop now?
49ers @ Vikings: San Francisco has lived up to the hype so far, and there is no reason to believe it will stop now. Niners, sweep it.
Chiefs @ Saints: The loser of this game will be 0-3. You think it’s hard to make the playoffs starting out 0-2? Well 0-3 is near impossible. Another unanimous pick, Saints.
Bengals @ Redskins: Not only did the Redskins lose last Sunday, but they also lost Brian Orakpo for the season. The good news is he will have plenty of time to play Scrabble with the Geico caveman. Bone and Chris like Cincy, Bruce is going with the Skins.
Eagles @ Cardinals: If you watched any of the Eagles games you would scratch your head wondering how they got to 2-0. If you look at the Cardinal on paper, more head scratching, and more 2-0. So here we are with a battle of the unbeaten, Bruce and T-Bone are riding the Eagles, and Chris is picking the upset and taking the Cardinals.
Falcons @ Chargers: For the second week in a row the falcons are playing an AFC West team, and, Chris and Bruce say for the second week in a row the Falcons are beating an AFC West team. T-Bone says the Falcons aren’t playing at home so give them the L.
Texans @ Broncos: Peyton Manning threw three picks in the first quarter Monday. Bruce apparently didn’t see the game and is taking the Broncos. T-Bone and Chris did see the game, oh and by the way the Texans are for real, they like Houston.
Steelers @ Raiders: Neither of these teams have been anything to write home about so far. However one of these teams will have to win. Bruce likes the Raiders to get it going at home. Chris and Bone are taking the Steelers.
Sunday Night Game
Patriots @ Ravens: Most would expect these two teams to be undefeated in week three and they both hit hiccups in week two. T-Bone likes the Raven to bounce back while Chris and Bruce are taking the Patriots.
Monday Night Game
Packers @ Seahawks: The Packers have had ten days to prepare for the Seahawks. We all like the Pack on MNF.
