Last week was a rough one for our expert panel of NFL game-pickers, as Terrence Kirker and Kevin Roberts tied for the best record…at 6-10. I was 5-11, while Keet Bailey brought up the caboose at 4-12. On the season, Kevin and I are each 16-16, Terrence is 14-18 and Keet is 13-19. None of us is an overlord this week, sadly.

On to Cincinnati. And also Week 3:

Washington Redskins (1-1) @ New York Giants (0-2)

Taylor Smith: Giants

Kevin Roberts: Redskins

Keet Bailey: Giants (third time’s the charm)

Terrence Kirker: Giants

Mr. Roberts is the lone dissenter/Kirk Cousins believer here, apparently. The rest of us like the G-Men to get off the schneid.

Atlanta Falcons (2-0) @ Dallas Cowboys (2-0)

Taylor: Falcons

Kevin: Falcons

Keet: Cowboys

Terrence: Falcons

Keet evidently believes Brandon Weeden is capable of winning a game against a halfway decent opponent sans his top pass-catcher. Godspeed, Brandon.

Indianapolis Colts (0-2) @ Tennessee Titans (1-1)

Taylor: Titans

Kevin: Colts

Keet: Colts

Terrence: Colts

Perhaps it’s unrealistic of me to expect the Colts to get off to an 0-3 start. Or perhaps I’m a GENIUS.

Oakland Raiders (1-1) @ Cleveland Browns (1-1)

Taylor: Raiders

Kevin: Browns

Keet: Raiders

Terrence: Browns

Split decision here for what looks like America’s Trash Game of the Week.

Cincinnati Bengals (2-0) @ Baltimore Ravens (0-2)

Taylor: Ravens

Kevin: Ravens

Keet: Bengals

Terrence: Bengals

Are Kevin and I insane for picking the team that just gave up 37 points to the damn Raiders last week? Yeah, probably.

Jacksonville Jaguars (1-1) @ New England Patriots (2-0)

Taylor: Patriots

Kevin: Patriots

Keet: Patriots

Terrence: Patriots

Haha. Yeah.

New Orleans Saints (0-2) @ Carolina Panthers (2-0)

Taylor: Panthers

Kevin: Panthers

Keet: Saints

Terrence: Panthers

Healthy Drew Brees or not, Keet’s thinking New Orleans gets into the win column for the first time this week.

Philadelphia Eagles (0-2) @ New York Jets (2-0)

Taylor: Jets

Kevin: Jets

Keet: Eagles

Terrence: Jets


Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-1) @ Houston Texans (0-2)

Taylor: Texans

Kevin: Texans

Keet: Texans

Terrence: Texans

Wouldn’t shock me at all if the Texans dropped this game. Because when the Texans are bad, they bottom-out somethin’ fierce.

San Diego Chargers (1-1) @ Minnesota Vikings (1-1)

Taylor: Vikings

Kevin: Chargers

Keet: Chargers

Terrence: Vikings

The Chargers have always seemed to be a different team on the road. They’re on the road this week.

Pittsburgh Steelers (1-1) @ St. Louis Rams (1-1)

Taylor: Steelers

Kevin: Steelers

Keet: Steelers

Terrence: Rams

Keep going for two, Steelers. It’s actually the only thing that makes you endearing.

San Francisco 49ers (1-1) @ Arizona Cardinals (2-0)

Taylor: Cardinals

Kevin: Cardinals

Keet: Cardinals

Terrence: Cardinals

Keep on chuckin’, Palmy!

Buffalo Bills (1-1) @ Miami Dolphins (1-1)

Taylor: Dolphins

Kevin: Bills

Keet: Dolphins

Terrence: Bills

Two teams that are in weird spots face-off in Miami. Or near Miami. Or wherever the hell that stupid stadium is.

Chicago Bears (0-2) @ Seattle Seahawks (0-2)

Taylor: Seahawks

Kevin: Seahawks

Keet: LOL. I’m with the majority here. ‘Hawks.

Terrence: Seahawks

Seattle is a 14.5-point favorite, which is the largest an 0-2 team has been favored by in almost 20 years. Keet feels like he had to be different and add “LOL” to this Seattle pick. Now the Bears will get Clausen’d and lose by 20.

Denver Broncos (2-0) @ Detroit Lions (0-2)

Taylor: Broncos

Kevin: Broncos

Keet: Broncos

Terrence: Broncos

Despite looking completely pedestrian, we’re all in on Denver getting to 3-0.

Kansas City Chiefs (1-1) @ Green Bay Packers (2-0)

Taylor: Packers

Kevin: Packers

Keet: Chiefs

Terrence: Packers

Keet’s just trying to be a hipster.
