Not gonna not start out with some Frank & Nancy...
God bless 'em.
And God bless this week's picks.
First, we must revisit last week's picks and calculate the record on the season:
PHI -1.5 L
CAR +8.5 L
DEN +6.5 W
ATL +3 W
SF -7 W
MIA +6 W
MIN +3.5 L
DET +6 L
CHI -5.5 L
TEN -7.5 L
ARI -7 W
BAL -7 W
KC -8.5 L
NE +3.5 L
NO -5.5 L
Top 5 of the week: San Francisco, Baltimore, Atlanta, Chicago, Tennessee
Bold Prediction: Frank Gore rushes for over 60 yards and 1+ TDs against his former team and Adam Gase cracks a Grinch-like smile as he prepares to bench Le'Veon Bell indefinitely. San Fran still covers the -7 on defensive scores alone.
Week 2 Record: 6-9 Week 2 Locks: 3-2
Week 2 Bold Prediction: Incorrect. Frank the Tank did not find the endzone.
Season Record: 15-13-1
Season Locks Record: 7-3
Season Bold Predictions: 0-2
Back to the drawing board in week 3. This is a classic Vegas move. Gambler wins in week 1. Gambler gives their winnings back in week 2. Gambler loses his/her mortgage in week 3. Let's not fall for the trap.
Today we have 8 games at 1 o'clock. 5 games at 4, and Green Bay brings home Sunday Night Football against New Orleans. Plus, we have the top two teams in the league facing off tomorrow night as the Ravens host the Chiefs. Should be a great week of professional football.
Like Ace Ventura, I'm not going to overthink things.
MY WEEK 3, QUICK DECISION, SHOUTOUT TO "THE QUICK AND THE DEAD", WHICH IS AN ALL-TIME GREAT MOVIE THAT MOST PEOPLE SURPRISINGLY HAVE NEVER SEEN OR EVEN HEARD OF, EVEN THOUGH THE CAST INCLUDES RUSSELL CROWE, GENE HACKMAN, AND A YOUNG LEONARDO DICAPRIO... PICKS:
IND -11.5 (yikes, Jets)
DET +5.5 (biggest trap line ever for Arizona)
Top 5 Locks of the week: New England, Houston, Atlanta, Green Bay, Baltimore
Bold Prediction: Detroit and Carolina both win their games outright. BOO YAH!
Good luck to all. Go Pack Go. And Go Lamar Jackson Go.
