Mark's week 3 picks

Last week 4-3

Season 6-8

I went 4-3 should have went 5-2.  How Green Bay lost to the Vikes is beyond me.  Sam Bradford had 8 days to learn the offense- 8!!!  The Vikes couldn't run the ball because their line is terrible and AP got hurt.  Didn't matter I still lost- ugh!! well try to do better this week.

Hou (-2.5) at New England-  I know it's in Foxboro and it's against Coach Belicheck but it's a 3rd string rookie.  You still need the horses to win the Kentucky Derby.  The Pats line is banged up as well .  This sets up well for the visiting Texans.  JJ Watt and JaDaveon Clowney should own the line of scrimmage.  

Pitt  (-4) at Philly-  One of the best teams in the league travels across the state to take on rookie Carson Wentz.  Wentz has been impressive, but the Steelers are a much different animal than the Bears or Browns.  The loss of all pro lineman Lane Johnson hurts the Eagles o-line.  Antonio Brown is due for a big week- mainly because I'm playing him in my fantasy league.  The zone blitz of Pittsburgh could cause some turnovers.  Give me the Steelers

Car (-7.5) vs Minn-  The Vikings have lost AP and their starting tackle Matt Kalil. A bad o-line gets worse.  Sam Bradford did well in his Vikings debut but he['s not very mobile and Carolina's front four should own the line of scrimmage.  I think the Vikes defense gets worn down and Cam and the Panthers pull away.

GB (-8) vs Det-  The Packers offense should rebound.  Detroit has a banged up defense losing Levy and Ansah and the retirement of Wr Calvin Johnson is a welcome site for Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers.  Jordy Nelson continues to get better and Aaron Rodgers is due for a big game.  Packers roll at Lambeau.

Dal (-7.5) vs Chi- Chicago's is banged up on both sides of the ball- especially on the line.  Trying to stop Zeke Elliott and the Cowboys all pro offensive line seems unlikely.  I think the Cowboys control the line of scrimmage and run at will.  Dak Prescott has poise of a savvy veteran and is due to connect with Dez Bryant.  For the Bears 2nd year wr Kevin White is very raw and not ready.  Give me Dallas at home.
