DLT's Deadlocks - NFL Week 3 Picks 2014

Who is the big upset this week?

Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome back true believers, after a mediocre start to the NFL season for yours truly, I followed up week one's average performance with another average shibacle, a 10-6 week.

In other words, if you're betting on my picks, you're probably losing your shirt. Don't do it!

Let's see what the ole Magic 8 ball has in store for us this week.

Last Week: 10-6  62%  Upset Specials: 1-1 50%

Season: 19-13 59%  Upset Specials: 1-2 33%

Thursday Night

Falcons 27, Buccaneers 20 - I could be wrong, but I don't think the FAILcons are capable of blowing out anyone, even the injury depleted and McCown impaired Bucs. Thankfully for the Tampa Bay defense they actually face a starter this week, not some backup nobody ever heard of. Of course, they'll probably knock out Ryan and get beat by TJ Yates.


Bills 24, Chargers 17 - The Buffalo Bills 3-0? Has Hell frozen over like a January day at the Ralph?

Cowboys 27, Rams 17 - Sorry Austin Davis, your mojo only works once.

Eagles 30, Redskins 20 - I don't wish injury on anyone, but RG III going away and Cousins taking over may be the best thing for Jay Gruden's offense. Still doesn't matter against Philly.

Upset Special #1: Giants 24, Texans 17 - The Giants can't afford to fall to 0-3, even in the NFC Least.

Saints 30, Vikings 24 - No AP no problem for the Saints.

Bengals 24, Titans 10 - The Flaming Thumbtacks let me down last week. Who Dey? Not Tennessee.

Ravens 27, Browns 17 - Even with the upset of New Orleans, I'm still not a believer in Cleveland.

Upset Special #2: Packers 24, Lions 17 - Green Bay gets to 2-1 but the Lions continue to disappoint what's left of Detroit.

Colts 20, Jaguars 10 - Surely an Andrew Luck team can't go 0-3.

Patriots 40, Raiders 17 - The Raiders commitment to excrement continues...

Upset Special #3 Cardinals 23, 49ers 17 - I think there's about to be a changing of the guard in the NFC West.

Upset Special #4 Broncos 26, Seahawks 20 - Yep, that's right. A record FOUR Upset specials this week and not a single one the Bucs.

Dolphins 23, Chiefs 13 - What a difference a year makes for the Googly Moogly's.

Sunday Night

Panthers 23, Steelers 16 - Okay FINE. I grudingly have begun to believe in the Panthers.

Monday Night

Bears 30, Jets 17 - DA Bears.
