Week 2 was a week of chalk, following up a wild and unpredictable Week 1. Between the Bears and the Vikings, we picked the wrong NFC North team to lose in two close games, but otherwise, the picks straight up were solid, and the predictionsagainst the spread were smashing.Now that we have some good early season results, we'll track them with our "Stats of the Week" below again. But what we did last week has little meaning or importance intrying to get things right this week.Week 3 definitely doesn't lack for marquee games with quarterbacks serving as the headliners. Those levels of elite pa sing duels also create tougher matchups to call.Even though Isaiah Simmons Jersey we're doing well ATS, keep in mind these picks are "for entertainment purposes only."The point spreads come courtesy of :MORE: NFL picks against the spread for Week 3Game of the Week: Chiefs at Ravens()Monday 8:15p.m. ET, ESPNThe Chiefs have had more i sues with run defense and the Ravens will try to exploit that with Lamar Jackson and their three talented backs, Mark Ingram, J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards. Baltimore will try to win with ball control, but Kansas City is capable of that, too, with rookie Clyde Edwards-Helaire. Both teams will try to hit on big pa s plays and exploit the middle of the field. Jackson will do his best with Mark Andrews and Marquise Brown, but Patrick Mahomes will have more succe s doing so with Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill. Mahomes will pickhis good spots to run, too, to add to outplaying Jackson on the latter's home turf in prime time.Pick: Chiefs win 34-27.Game of Midweek: Dolphins at Jaguars()Thursday 8:20 p.m. ET, NFL Network The Dolphins played a lot better offensively in Week 2 but are still 0-2 with Ryan Fitzpatrick while first-round rookie Tua Tagovailoa waits his turn. For the Jaguars, Gardner Minshew is justifying the decision not to draft or add a veteran QB to replace him. James Robinson is also showing why Leonard Fournette was expendable. The Jaguars will be more effective running and pa sing everywhere and Fitzpatrick will make more mistakes on the road than Minshew does at home.Pick: Jaguars win 24-20 and cover the spread.Result: Dolphins won 31-13Lock of the Week: Steelers ()over TexansSunday 1p.m. ET, CBS The Steelers are doing everything they want offensively with Ben Roethlsiberger and James Conner back healthy together. The Texans are stopping nothing defensively, having being burned through ground and air by the the Chiefs and Ravens. T.J. Watt is playing for a Pittsburgh pa s rush in front of a top secondary. J.J.

Upset of the Week: Vikings Kurt Warner Jersey over Titans ()Sunday 1 p.m. ET, CBS The Vikings can't be this bad, can they? The Titans can't be this good, can they? Minnesota's defense is in a rough patch, struggling mightily against run and pa s over the first two weeks. The key here at home for the Vikings will be a positive game script where they can control the game with Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison on the ground and Kirk Cousins is throwing efficiently off play-action. There's nothing scary about Tenne see's overrated defense, either. The streaky Cousins is due to be hot again, while Ryan Tannehill cools off a little on the road as the Vikings rise from desperation mode.Pick: Vikings win 24-20.Bengals at Eagles ()Sunday 1 p.m. ET, CBSThe Bengals and Eagles each are having major offensive line i sues for different respective reasons, lacking talent and lacking health. They have two gamers at quarterback in Joe Burrow and Carson Wentz. Both teams are trying to help their QBs with the running game and a lot of throws to the middle of the field. Both teams' linebackers and safeties are vulnerable. The Bengals will have trouble with the two-tight end sets and Miles Sanders' versatile skill set. The Eagles will have trouble inside and Joe Mixon's all-purpose game. The Eagles are the better overall team Josh Doctson Jersey and will be have desperation at home to survive, but it won't be pretty or comfortable.Pick: Eagles win 27-23 but fail to cover the spread.49ers () at GiantsSunday 1 p.m. ET, FoxThe 49ers won't have Jimmy Garoppolo, Deebo Samuel, Raheem Mostert, Nick Bosa and Richard Sherman for this game. The Giants, however, have lost Saquon Barkley for the season and likely Sterling Shepard for a while. Nick Mullens vs. Daniel Jones doesn't really sound like a shootout then, does it? Look for the 49ers to survive offensively, a suming George Kittle comes back and Jerick McKinnon keeps on bursting. The Giants will be very limited in Josh Jones Jersey moving the ball. The 49ers ripped through the Jets in this same stadium last week and will demand better turf. They win another one at MetLife going away.Pick: 49ers win 24-13 and cover the spread.Raiders at Patriots ()Sunday 1 p.m. ET, CBSCam Newton is in a groove running and pa sing and there's no indication to bet against him vs. Las Vegas in his second home game for the Patriots. The Raiders offer little resistance with their front and back end. Derek Carr will be thwarted by a top secondary and a good pa s rush by committee as you can bet Bill Belichick will focus on taking Josh Jacobs and the run-heavy game plan away from Jon Gruden.Pick: Patriots win 30-20and cover the spread.Washington Football Team at Browns ()Sunday 1 p.m. ET, Fox The Browns found their formula of running big time with Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt, with the occasional big play from Baker Mayfield. They will want to wear down Washington with the run so they can keep Chase Young and the Football Team's pa s rush at bay vs. Mayfield. Dwayne Haskins is playing better, but there's not much reliable around him in a hostile road environment, back near his college stomping grounds at Ohio State.Pick: Browns win 34-20and cover the spread. The referenced media source is mi sing and needs to be re-embedded.Rams at Bills ()Sunday 1 p.m. ET, Fox The Rams are unfazed by cro s-country travel under Sean McVay and will try to build on winning at Philadelphia last week. But this is a much sturdier opponent, with a red-hot Josh Allen and a diverse offense. Jalen Ramsey can't cover both Stefon Diggs and John Brown, when Aaron Donald gets after Allen, he can use his legs on scrambles and designed runs James Conner Jersey to get out of trouble. Jared Goff will keep trying to work the middle, but he'll face more consistent pocket pre sure than Allen.Pick: Bills win 23-20 and cover the spread.Bears at Falcons ()Sunday 1 p.m. ET, FoxThe Falcons ran into the blowout buzzsaw of Ru sell Wilson and comeback cruise of Dak Prescott. They should welcome getting a QB break from Mitchell Trubisky. Don't blame Matt Ryan for chucking to keep Atlanta in games, and with Julio Jones, Calvin
