Week 3 of the NFL is coming up soon so business has picked up. Here we go with my top four games of the week.
Houston Texans (2-0) at New Orleans Saints (1-1)
There is no doubt in my mind that the Texans are a much better team then they have been in recent year. Their 2-0 start was against a Peyton-less Colt’s team and a Miami team that doesn’t have much of a defense. The Saints on the other-hand lost a nail-biter in week 1 and beat up on Jay Cutler and the Bear in week 2. I believe Matt Schaub will be recieving the same treatment that Cutler did on the path to a New Orleans Saints victory.
New York Giants (1-1) at Philadelphia Eagles (1-1)
This game is intriguing based on the fact that the Rams are accusing the Giants of faking injuries to slow the pace of the game down. Then you have the Eagles possibly without Michael Vick. This game is a toss up but because of how banged up the Giants secondary is I am going to say that Jackson and Maclin are going to run all over the field in this one with or without Michael Vick. They still have a decent backup in Vince Young.
Green Bay Packers (2-0) at Chicago Bears (1-1)
Another divisional game that will test both teams. I’ve been saying it for two years now that the Bears winning always depends on what Jay Cutler shows. Week 1 he was great and week 2 got crushed. The Packers won two close games and if you remember they beat the Bears in the NFC Championship game last year. As much as the Packers defense worries me right now, I think it will be a repeat of the NFC title game. The Packers win and rough up Jay Cutler. Ironic how Jay Cutler compared himself to Elway when he was in Denver because he takes worst beatings then Elway did. Atleast Elway would take the beatings and win games.
Washington Redskins (2-0) at Dallas Cowboys (1-1)
Is Washington for real? The answer is yes. I have to go with Washington this week because they have momentum. If Tony Romo does play, it will be a struggle and if not I think the it’s an easy win for the Redskins. As I’ve said in previous writing, the Redskins got rid of their distractions and made some nice off-season moves as well as a very good draft. The Redskins take the division lead at 3-0 by the end of week 3.
Those are my predictions for the week. If you wish to get my thoughts on other games post a comment on the Facebook Page and give me the game you want to know about.
