The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / 2017 NFL Week 3: Preview and Predictions (Beating the Spread)

2017 NFL Week 3: Preview and Predictions (Beating the Spread)

NFL Week 3 Beating the Spread
Publish Date: 09/22/2017
Fact checked by: Simon Briffa
Sep 10, 2017; Landover, MD, USA; Philadelphia Eagles outside linebacker Nigel Bradham (53), strong safety Malcolm Jenkins (27) and defensive end Brandon Graham (55) celebrate after stoping Washington Redskins on third down during the first quarter at FedEx Field. Philadelphia Eagles defeated Washington Redskins 30-17. Mandatory Credit: Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports


Baltimore Ravens at Jacksonville Jaguars(-3.5)

The Jaguars looked like the team everybody thought they had the potential to be in week 1. In week 2 they looked like the team everybody thought they would be. The Jags never live up to the potential of the roster they have. Look for the Ravens to pressure Blake Bortles all day.

Prediction: Ravens 20  Jaguars 13


Cleveland Browns at Indianapolis Colts(+1.5)

The Colts are home underdogs to the Browns, when was the last time the Browns were favored on the road? I think Cleveland wins a close badly played game.

Prediction: Browns 17  Colts 13


Pittsburgh Steelers at Chicago Bears(+7)

The Steelers have too many weapons for the Bears, who counter with just Jordan Howard.

Prediction: Steelers 27  Bears 10


Miami Dolphins at New York Jets(+6)

The Jets have played hard so far this year, they just aren’t very good.

Prediction: Dolphins 24  Jets 14


Denver Broncos at Buffalo Bills(+3)

The Bills couldn’t get it going against the Panthers and the Broncos are better offensively and defensively than Carolina.

Prediction: Broncos 27  Bills 13


Houston Texans at New England Patriots(-13.5)

A playoff rematch from last year and I think the Texans are good enough on defense to take the points in this game.

Prediction:Patriots 24  Texans 13


New Orleans Saints at Carolina Panthers(-5.5)

If the Panthers ever get the offense kick started it should be this week against a bad New Orleans defense.

Prediction: Panthers 27  Saints 17


Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Minnesota Vikings(No Line)

No line right now because of the unknown status of Sam Bradford at this time. With a healthy Bradford I would take the Vikings, but even if he plays he may not be healthy.

Prediction: Buccaneers 28  Vikings 16


Atlanta Falcons at Detroit Lions(+3)

Great matchup between maybe the two best QB’s in the NFL right now. I think Atlanta’s ability to run the ball will be the difference here.

Prediction: Falcons 37  Lions 31


New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles(-6)

The Eagles defensive line will have a field day. The Giants are a playoff roster until you look at the offensive line.

Prediction: Eagles 27  Giants 17


Seattle Seahawks at Tennessee Titans(-3)

The Seahawks much like the Giants are terrible on the offensive line and I look for the Titans to squeak by here.

Prediction: Titans 20  Seahawks 17


Kansas City Chiefs at Los Angeles Chargers(+3)

The Chargers maybe 2-0 if their field goal kicker could kick last second field goals. The Chiefs are a hard-nosed football team that will be in contention all year.

Prediction: Chiefs 31  Chargers 27


Cincinnati Bengals at Green Bay Packers(-8.5)

The Bengals will finally score a TD, but they won’t score enough of them.

Prediction:Packers 24  Bengals 14


Oakland Raiders at Washington Redskins(+3)

This should be a high scoring shootout and I think it will be decided by who has the ball last.

Prediction: Raiders 38  Redskins 35


Dallas Cowboys at Arizona Cardinals(+3)

The Cowboys will be mad and the Cardinals will be bad.

Prediction: Cowboys 34  Cardinals 20
