My forecast of NFL video games for week three didn’t prove so nicely. Seven video games proper, 9 video games fallacious, with one sport coming near what I had known as. That might be the Cleveland Browns/Washington soccer crew end result for which I had mentioned the browns would win 34-20 and the ultimate was 31-20.
Very briefly, right here is my quick response to what came about on the sphere final Thursday by way of Monday night time’s huge showdown.
Dolphins 31 / Jaguars 13
I picked the Jags who have been taking part in at dwelling and in opposition to a crew, they’re higher than, Jacksonville failed to indicate up.
Titans 31 / Vikings 30
Minnesota had this one within the bag and let it slip away Main 17-9 at halftime, the Titans got here again to flip the rating by a 16-7 margin within the third quarter after which hit a late area purpose to shut the sport out.
Rams 32 / Payments 35
Are the Payments for actual? It is going to be attention-grabbing after they face the Tom Brady-less Patriots for the primary time this season. For now, they’re undefeated and the Rams lose their first of the season.
49ers 36 / Giants 9
What accidents? New York Metropolis has two terrible groups at their disposal.
Steelers 28 / Texans 21
Pittsburgh is quietly 3-Zero and taking part in good soccer however as soon as they butt heads with Baltimore, then we’ll know the way good they’re.
Patriots 36 / Raiders 20
The large query is “is New England a greater crew with Cam Newton and never Tom Brady?” Cam and his offense are rolling and the Patriots nonetheless appear to be the crew to beat within the AFC East.
Bengals 23 / Eagles 23 (time beyond regulation)
Rookie quarterback Joe Burrow mentioned he hates to lose so not less than he didn’t do this in week three. However he did not win additionally. Philadelphia has been a disappointment up to now.
Bears 30 / Falcons 26
Atlanta Head Coach Dan Quinn ought to put together to leap on the unemployment line. His “Soiled Birds” are taking part in like filth as they turned the primary crew in NFL historical past to blow not less than a 15-point lead in back-to-back video games. Holding a 16-point lead on Chicago, in got here Nick Foles changing Mitch Trubisky and Foles not solely received the sport for Chicago he received himself one other beginning job. What he couldn’t do in Jacksonville he did in Chicago and everyone seems to be predicting he’ll be the starter going ahead.
Browns 34 / Washington Soccer Staff 20
Are the Browns again the place they’re alleged to be? Solely time will inform however their offense is trying fairly sharp.
Colts 36 / Jets 7
What’s that odor? It’s the New York Jets. In a phrase…they stink. Sam Darnold three interceptions? Some blame could be placed on the shortage of expertise round him, however anybody that loses to this crew in 2020 ought to be embarrassed. On the flip facet, Philip Rivers had a really environment friendly day going 17-21 for 217 yards and a passing landing.
Panthers 21 / Chargers 16
Two groups in transition with new quarterbacks and possibly no likelihood of creating the playoffs in 2020. Merely planning to 2021.
Seahawks 38 / Cowboys 31
Russell Wilson is on hearth. He’s taking part in lights out and his crew is 3-0. One week Dallas appears to be like dangerous the subsequent they’re within the loops as a critical competitor within the NFC. They didn’t play badly on this sport however their firepower was no match for Wilson and gang.
Buccaneers 28 / Broncos 10
There shall be many who assume Tom Brady remains to be probably the greatest within the league and whereas he is perhaps, don’t get carried away considering he’s taking Tampa deep into the season. Their one loss was to the Saints who’ve misplaced their final two and final Sunday to Denver who has but to win a sport. Their subsequent sport is with the 1-2 Chargers after which the undefeated Bears earlier than assembly Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. At that time, we should always have an thought of how good the Bucs actually are.
