NFL Week 3 Pick Results

Winning teams in bold.

Unanimous picks (11-2)

Texans @ Titans
Bengals @ Giants
Lions @ 49ers
Browns @ Ravens
Raiders @ Bills
Saints @ Broncos
Chiefs @ Falcons
Rams @ Seahawks
Steelers @ Eagles
Jets @ Chargers
Cowboys @ Packers

Not so much:

Dolphins @ Patriots
Epic fail. How many more times this season do you suppose the Patriots defense will see direct snaps to a running back?
Buccaneers @ Bears
The Bears' defense couldn't hold a 10 point lead for 6 minutes and 45 seconds. It's starting to look like that week 1 performance was something of a fluke (combined with the fact that the Colts may be looking at a major drop-off of their own).

Split Picks (APR 0-3, SRS 1-2, Line 2-1)

Jaguars (SRS) @ Colts (APR, Line)
SRS makes up for last week; tied with APR again. There's still a lot of football to play, but the Colts need to figure out how to have a defense when Bob Sanders is hurt.
Panthers (APR, SRS) @ Vikings (Line)
The Vikings do have a pretty stout defense, and like the Giants found out last year, can make up for an anemic offense when they get the chance.
Cardinals (APR, SRS) @ Redskins (Line)
The Cardinals' two turnovers lead to 10 points for the Redskins.


This weekOverall
APR: 11-521-10
SRS: 12-421-10

New power rankings, and next weeks' picks to come.
