2014 Week 3 NFL Picks

Time for John Harbaugh to pick a side. He either asked for Rice to be cut immediately after the incident as ESPN says, which makes him look good. Or ESPN has it wrong and he didn’t. The only person who can answer this question definitively is John Harbaugh….

Before we get to this week’s picks, a look back at how I did last week. My picks are listed first.

WEEK 2 WINNING PICKS
Baltimore beat Pittsburgh
Buffalo beat Miami
Cincinnati beat Atlanta
Arizona beat N.Y. Giants
Carolina beat Detorit
Denver beat Kansas City
Green Bay beat N.Y. Jets

WEEK 2 LOSING PICKS
Minnesota lost to New England
Tennessee lost to Dallas
Jacksonville lost to Washington
New Orleans lost to Cleveland
Seattle lost to San Diego
Tampa Bay lost to St. Louis
Oakland lost to Houston
San Francisco lost to Chicago
Indianapolis lost to Philadelphia

A 7-9 week added to my 8-8 week in Week 1 puts my season record at a dismal 15-17. Surprisingly, I still manage to stay ahead of some of the so-called experts at ESPN.

SO-CALLED ESPN EXPERTS
Tom Jackson 21-11
KC Joyner 20-12
Eric Allen 19-13
Ron Jaworksi 18-14
Cris Carter 17-15
Mike Golic 16-16

ME 15-17
Merrill Hoge 15-17
Mark Schlereth 15-17
Keyshawn Johnson 15-17
Cris Mortensen 14-18
