NFL observations entering Week 3
The Rams stink. OK, so that's hardly a news flash. But in the race for worst team of 2009, we now have a winner. Whatever happeend to the Greatest Show on Turf?
The Broncos aren't that good. With a win over Oakland this week, rookie head coach Josh McDaniels will be a perfect 3-0. Wanna bet the Broncos finish no better than 8-8?
Bet over on Bills-Saints. Don't look now, but the Ravens and Bills have scored the most points in the AFC. All together now: what's wrong with this picture?
Titans will beat the Jets. Titans are desperate and Jets are due for a letdown. Think Rex Ryan was leaving messages again for Jets fans this week?
The Patriots will beat the Falcons. Maybe this is nothing more than blind faith, but in Bill and Tom we trust. Of course, if they lose, we reserve the right to panic.
