I went 13-3 last week straight-up, and 5-9-2 against the spread. For the season, that puts me at 23-9 straight-up, and 16-13-3 against the spread. For a comparison, check out the "experts" over at ESPN.
Here are my picks for the NFL's Week Three:
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 25
Houston 2-0 at New Orleans 1-1 1:00PM [Line: Saints by 4]
The Texans have allowed just 20 points, fewest in the NFL. The Saints are the only team in the NFC South with a positive point differential.
RJ's Pick: Houston by 3
New York Giants 1-1 at Philadelphia 1-1 1:00PM [Line: Eagles by 7.5]
The Giants were accused of faking injuries in their win over the Rams last week. The Eagles may be without QB Michael Vick.
RJ's Pick: Philadelphia by 4
Jacksonville 1-1 at Carolina 0-2 1:00PM [Line: Panthers by 3.5]
The Jaguars did not score a touchdown against the Jets last week. Panthers' rookie QB Cam Newton has thrown for over 400 yards in each of his first two NFL regular season games.
RJ's Pick: Carolina by 8
New England 2-0 at Buffalo 2-0 1:00PM [Line: Patriots by 9]
The Patriots have the NFL's top offense in terms of total yards and passing yards. The Bills are first in the league in rushing yards per game.
RJ's Pick: New England by 2
Miami 0-2 at Cleveland 1-1 1:00PM [Line: Browns by 2.5]
The Dolphins have started the season 0-2 at home after going 1-7 at home last season. The Browns are averaging just 3.2 yards per rushing attempt.
RJ's Pick: Miami by 5
San Francisco 1-1 at Cincinnati 1-1 1:00PM [Line: Bengals by 3]
The 49ers are averaging the second fewest total yards per game in the NFL. Bengals' rookie QB Andy "The Red Menace" Dalton has a passer rating of 105.7 so far this season.
RJ's Pick: Cincinnati by 7
Denver 1-1 at Tennessee 1-1 1:00PM [Line: Titans by 7]
The Broncos are a little shorthanded at wide receiver, so they signed Quan Cosby earlier this week. Titans' RB Chris Johnson has just 77 yards on 33 carries so far this season.
RJ's Pick: Tennessee by 2
Detroit 2-0 at Minnesota 0-2 1:00PM [Line: Lions by 3.5]
The Lions have the NFL's best point differential. The Vikings lost at home last week despite leading 17-0 at halftime.
