“Pat’s Perfect NFL Picks–Week 3 Edition.
It’s that time again for the most exciting three minutes in Sunday News-Talk Radio across the U.S.of A. That’s right, it’s time for another installment of “Pat’s Perfect NFL Picks” on WSGW’s First Day!
This is the segment of the show where I give you what I think are the three games I consider the locks of the week. And yes, one of those games includes the Detroit Lions game of the week.
So, before I share this week’s guaranteed not-to-fail picks, let’s review my picks from Week 2.
I told you the Detroit Lions would steal a game from the Carolina Panthers. They not only failed to prove me right, but they looked like the Same Old Lions.
I told you the Atlanta Falcons would beat the Cincinnati Bungles in Cincy, and they failed to show-up at all.
Thankfully, the Buffalo Bills saved me from a disastrous week by running all over the Miami Dolphins.
A 1-2 record is the reason why I’m sporting just a pedestrian 3-3 overall record. It’s early, though, and I’m ready to get back on track with a perfect Week 3.
Here’s the Week 3 edition of “Pat’s Perfect NFL Picks!”
We begin in Seattle where the Super Bowl Champion Seahawks welcome the defending AFC Champion Denver Broncos into town for a little rematch of last year’s title game. It was a game in which the Seahawks dominated Peyton Manning and his Broncos from the very first play. Seattle controlled the line of scrimmage throughout the evening, and Denver had no answer for Seattle’s lightening fast defense. Some of the so-called experts are picking Denver to win this game in Seattle. What are they thinking? Denver couldn’t handle the Seahawks on a neutral field last February, and now I’m supposed to believe they can beat the Seahawks in Seattle? The home of the 12th Man? This game won’t be a game, it’s going to be a lesson.
GIVE ME THE SEATTLE OVER DENVER 31-16!
Has Got To Be The Worst Mascot In Sports History!
Next up, the Cleveland Browns host the Baltimore Ravens. The Browns may not be as bad as some may think, as we witnessed in their come-from-behind victory against the New Orleans Saints last Sunday. The Ravens are feeling a little confident after they pushed around my Pittsburgh Steelers a week ago. This will be a tough AFC Central game, featuring some good defenses and effective running games. I know some want to think Joe Flacco and the Ravens will not lose this game, but it’s being held in The Dog Pound. Not only that, but I think surprise running back Terrance West will light-up the Ravens defense for a couple of scores.
I CAN’T BELIEVE I’M PICKING THE CLOWNS OVER THE RAVENS–20-17!
And finally, your Detroit Lions host the Green Bay Packers in an NFC Showdown at Ford Field today with kickoff at 1pm. The Lions are coming-off a humiliating and all-too-familiar road disappointment as Carolina dismantled Detroit last week, while the Packers came-back to beat the Jets and are looking to make it back-to-back wins. Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers is 9-1 against Detroit with his only loss happening because he got injured in the first half. If the Lions are to win, they have to score at least 35 points because Rodgers is going to have a field day with a beat-up Lions secondary. Look for Jordy Nelson to have 20 receptions for 518 yards and 5 touchdowns! Ok, maybe the Lions won’t lose that bad, but my confidence is low with the Lions right now. I repeat, confidence is low.
GIVE ME THE PACKERS OVER THE LIONS 31-27!!!
That’s the Week 3 edition of “Pat’s Perfect NFL PIcks” on WSGW’s First Day!
