NFL Week 3 picks 2013

iagspicks3

Coming off an emotional, last-second victory, I’m taking E.J. Manuel and the Bills +2 over Geno Smith and the surprisingly not-awful New York Jets in a matchup of rookie quarterbacks.

I’ll be reporting from Heinz Field again Sunday, where I expect the Bears -2.5 to cover against a Steelers team that hasn’t been able to do anything so far on offense. Consider this: Last Nov. 12, Jonathan Dwyer ran 19 times for 56 yards … and no Steeler has topped that performance since. Yuck.

Week 3 picks, made against lines in Thursday’s Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

Buffalo +2 at NY Jets — Buffalo

Chicago -2.5 at Pittsburgh — Chicago

Cleveland +5.5 at Minnesota — Minnesota

Tampa Bay +7.5 at New England — Tampa

Houston -2.5 at Baltimore — Baltimore

St. Louis +4 at Dallas — Dallas

Arizona +7.5 at New Orleans — Arizona

Detroit +2 at Washington — Detroit

Green Bay -2.5 at Cincinnati — Cincinnati

NY Giants +1 at Carolina — NY Giants

Atlanta +2 at Miami — Atlanta*

Indianapolis +10.5 at San Francisco — Indianapolis

Jacksonville +19.5 at Seattle — Jacksonville
