Predicting The Entire NFL Season: Week 3


After two week of our NFL projections, 10 unbeaten teams remain.

The Philadelphia Eagles are not one of them.

In Week 1, I have the Eagles beating the Jacksonville Jaguars. In Week 2, the Eagles drop a tough one to the Colts on Monday Night Football.

Here is a look at our projected NFL standings after two weeks:

How many teams will move to 3-0? Let’s find out.

Buccaneers @ Falcons: Two winless teams on NFL’s Thursday night game. Sounds about right. I don’t see the Falcons returning to the NFL’s elite in 2014, but they won’t be a doormat, either. That will go to Tampa Bay. Did you know Mike Kafka will be in camp to compete for the starting quarterback job? I kid you not. Atlanta 27, Tampa Bay 17

Chargers @ Bills: San Diego isn’t going to be very good, they’re traveling across the country, and a much-improved Buffalo team will be looking to go 3-0. Not good news for the Bolts. Buffalo 20, San Diego 13

Cowboys @ Rams: This is where projecting a complete season starts to get fun. I actually believe the Rams will be a better team than Dallas this season, but I can’t see the Rams going 3-0 to start the year. The Cowboys will have some hope after three weeks. Don’t worry. It will get hopeless soon enough. Dallas 16, St. Louis 14

Texans @ Giants: New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning threw 27 interceptions last season. The Houston Texans lost 14 games. I have both teams at 2-0 through two weeks. Something has to give. New York Giants 26, Houston 14

Vikings @ Saints: The Vikings are in for a long season. New Orleans 38, Minnesota 17

Titans @ Bengals: So are the Titans. Cincinnati 30, Tennessee 16

Ravens @ Browns: Johnny Manziel will definitely be the Cleveland Browns’ starting quarterback by now. It won’t matter. Baltimore 24, Cleveland 6

Packers @ Lions: Green Bay will have Aaron Rogers back at quarterback this season, but this is one of the weeks it won’t be enough. Detroit 34, Green Bay 32

Colts @ Jaguars: A short week and a road trip would be a tall order in most cases, but Indy gets a break by drawing Jacksonville here. Indianapolis 23, Jacksonville 7

Raiders @ Patriots: This is another one of those times where everything tells me the Patriots are going to win, but… Oakland 22, New England 21

49ers @ Cardinals: I have three unbeaten teams in the NFC West after two weeks (including San Francisco). After three weeks, the division won’t have a single team below .500. Arizona 28, San Francisco 24

Broncos @ Seahawks: Poor, poor Peyton Manning. He gets his rematch with the Seahawks on the road. He’s not winning there. Seattle 27, Denver 24

Chiefs @ Dolphins: The regression begins. Miami 36, Kansas City 28

Steelers @ Panthers: How about those Carolina Panthers? 3-0. Carolina 23, Pittsburgh 10

Bears @ Jets: Chicago finally gets into the win column. Chicago 20, New York Jets 10

And the matchup we’ve all been waiting for…

Redskins @ Eagles: If there is a game we all think the Eagles will win that they end up losing, it’s going to be this one. Philly will be coming off a short week, a tough loss, the Linc will be over-amped with Desean Jackson (he’ll catch two touchdown passes) returning, etc. The Philadelphia Eagles are a better team than the Washington Redskins, so they should win, but it’s going to be a wild game, and it’s going to be close. Philadelphia 37, Washington 35
