NFL week 3 starts off with some interesting matchups. By now, I think that everyone is getting used to seeing games with no fans. The NFL has done a good job at keeping your attention on the field, instead of in the stands. They also have been doing a good job with keeping players safe. As of now, there have been no reported cases of COVID-19 in the NFL. With a 53-man roster, and a whole bunch of coaches and staff members, to not have any positive cases is pretty impressive. Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson look like their are in MVP form already. Will this trend continue in week 3? Here are the NFL #HELLAFLAGRANT picks for week 3.
Houston Texans vs Pittsburg Steelers: Deshaun Watson vs Ben Roethlisberger is must see tv. Well at least it should be. After the Texans decided to trade the best wide receiver in the world away for nothing, they have struggled to find their offense. Imagine that. But they are due for a win. Unfortunately for them, it wont be this week. The Steelers defense isn’t the steel curtain anymore, but they still wreck shop. And with the Texan’s interfere offensive line, Deshaun might be running for his life. Mix in the fact that the spread is only -4.5, this is a no brainer. Take the Steelers -4.5.
New York Jets vs Indianapolis Colts: This one isn’t hard. I know, 11.5 is a big spread, but don’t over think it. The Jets are HORRIBLE! Without their star player (Le’Veon Bell), and a terrible defense, the Jets don’t have a prayer. The Colts aren’t world beaters by any stretch of the imagination, but they are clearly better than the Jets. This is easily a 2 touchdown game. Take the Colts -11.5.
Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens: The most exciting game on the NFL schedule this week! The last 2 league MVP’s battling for the #1 spot in the AFC. We know how electrifying Lamar Jackson is with the football. One of the fastest players in the league as well as a do it all quarterback. There is literally nothing he can’t do. The only quarterback better than him right now, is playing against him in this game! Patrick Mahomes is the best player in the NFL and is only getting better. That high powered Kansas City offense looks to show the Ravens whos best. I can’t pick a winner in this game, but what I will take is the OVER 54.5 points.
