Steeler Nation, we are now heading into the third week of the 2014 NFL season and its been a wild one so far!Each week the writers of Steelers N Stuff will give you their picks of the week against the spread. Now remember, these picks are for amusement purposes ONLY. Do not try these picks at home they are made by trained professionals.
Season Record W-L-T Steve 2-6-0 Brandon 5-3-0
$$$$ 49ers -2.5 over the Cardinals… Look for QB Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers to bounce back strong and hand the Carson Palmer less Cardinals their first loss of the season.
$$$ Colts -7 over Jaguars…Andrew Luck and the Colts have not had much luck as of late look for that to change for the better against the hapless Jacksonville Jaguars on the schedule this week.
$$ Steelers +3 over the Panthers… The Steelers had a few extra days to figure out a solution to their defensive woes and the offense will have a few players back in action including veteran WR Lance Moore. I’m banking on theses changes making a difference.We shall see.
$ Ravens-1.5 over the Browns… Well since they both can’t lose I guess I’ll try and pick a winner in this one. I believe the Browns have been playing well over their heads and are heading for a let down after a big victory over the Saints. I’ll take the Ravens.
Brandon’s picks of the week…
$$$$ Bears +2.5 over the Jets… After getting a big win last week over the 49ers, I believe the Bears are a much better team than the Jets heading into week three. Look for the Bears to walk out of this one with their second win of the season.
$$$ Lions -1 over the Packers… Staying inside the NFC North with this pick. I think the Lions show they are the best team in the division by defeating Aaron Rodgers and the Packers in Detroit on Sunday.
$$ Cardinals +2.5 over the 49ers… I continue to be impressed by the Cardinals every week so I am taking them again! The defense is much better than most people think and the same can be said about the offense. I think they find a way to defeat a 49ers team who I believe is not the same team they have been the last three seasons.
$ Chargers +2 over the Bills… The talk of the week was the big win the Chargers got over the defending Super Bowl champion, Seattle Seahawks. The Chargers should pick up where they left off last week and get a win on the road against the Bills.
