my picks are down below for ease of seeing them.
GB has way too much offense for Cinci. Cinci is trying to depend on Dalton right now, and with GB's pass rush and ball hawks, that's a bad idea
Pats over the Bucs because the Bucs are in complete dysfunction, Gronk may be back, and its Tom Frickin Brady. he's not going to lose to Josh Freeman
Lions over the Skins because Det's offense should have 0 problem moving on a Wash D that's been brutal so far. Add that to a less mobile RGIII facing a fast pass rush and it'll end in a lions W
Bears over Pitt because the Bears are all around a better team. Pitt has no line and the bears should stuff that offense all day. Forte will bust loose a couple of times and Marshall should be able to beat the coverage

Dalton has 10 TDs and just one interception in his last 5 home games..
I think the cinci offense will do just enough to hold on for the win..
If the game was in GB, I would say 0% chance for cinci..
But cinci at home is a tough game..
The pats have looked horrible so far..
The bucs defense is nasty, Tampa has only allowed 2 TDs through the air so far..
Brady has too many inexperienced receivers.. It's statistically been Brady's worst year so far..
Look for bucs WR Jackson to have a big game..
Jackson has 306 yards, 15 catches and 3TDs in his last 2 games vs the pats..
Lions RB Reggie bush is pretty banged up..
Detroits offense looked lost without him last week..
The skins have been alittle disappointing so far..
But it's just Detroit, nothing special..
Again.. If this was in Chicago, I would say no chance for Pitt..
But Big Ben at home is a beast vs NFC teams..
Ben is 15-1, throwing for 22TDs and 8 INTs..
He's licking his chops, when he hears the word NFC.

simple fact you're saying there's no chance in GB means GB is the better team. Cinci looks shaky on offense and is having to lean on Dalton. not a good recipe against GB who is notorious for jumping routes.
Pats might have looked horrible, but the debacle that was TBs offense against a poor NO defense is much worse. Gronk should be back for Brady and Edelman and Thompkins are only going to get better. V Jax is all TB has in the pass game and will be bracketed all game. its going to be tough sledding for TB. Pats by 2 scores.
Bush is hopeful to play so that's kind of irrelevant. Even if he doesn't, the skins D has been abysmal thus far. lions will score. now can Wash figure it out against the lions D? i say not fast enough. the lions win with Wash falling short on a comeback yet again. Stafford w/ 350+ and 2+ TDs.
Chicago again is the better team. Better D (Sorry pitt has gotten too old). better O (Pitt's o line is BRUTAL). Big Ben might try, but he has no ground game, no protection, and no great WRs. just ain't gonna happen

I won't lie..
Yes GB is a better team than cinci!
We all know that..
But upsets happen in this sport, and the bengals are tough at home..
I have liked what I have seen from the bengals so far this year..
It's why I'm going all in baby..
I am a pats fan..
And the first 2 games, I wanted to tear my eyes out..
I see no reason why everything is going to click week 3..
Tampa showed flashes of brilliance last year..
I'm counting on them to show up Sunday..
Bush is pretty banged up..
There is little chance he plays the whole game..
Once Reggie goes down..
The skins mount an exciting comeback..
I just can't see a roethlisberger team starting 0-3..
They have to win at some point..
Chicago looked good vs bengals..
But they're luck runs out in Pitt..
