    Sportsgirl's week 3 NFL picks column

    NFL PICKS: Cowboys won’t win in Mr. Rodgers’ neighborhood

    Dallas heads to Lambeau Field to take on Green Bay in a game the Cowboys would have likely rather played months ago as an NFC Championship game.

    Both teams come into this primetime contest at 2-0 and looking to make a stand in the NFC with a win. Often touted as one of the top quarterbacks in the league, the Cowboys’ Tony Romo starts behind center in a close statistical tie with his counterpart for the Packers, Aaron Rodgers. Romo has passed for 632 yards, 4 TDS and 2 INTs on the season, while Rodgers is at 506 yards, 4 TDs and 0 INTs. Dallas squeaked out a home win over Philadelphia Monday night, but on the road, especially at Lambeau where the Cowboys have never won, I think it’ll be a straight up win for the … Packers.


    Cincinnati (plus 13 1/2) at New York Giants:
    With the biggest spread of the weekend in tow, Cincinnati visits the N.Y. Giants with just shy of two TDs already in their pocket. The Giants had a convincing 41-13 win over St. Louis last week, but does that score indication a stellar New York offense or are the Rams just that bad? I like the Giants to win and the Bengals to cover,

    Miami (plus 12 1/2) at New England:
    The Bradyless Patriots have won both their games this season, scoring a total of 36 points against two of the lesser teams in the NFL. Miami has lost both of its games, and has scored a combined total of 24 points … a 12-point difference that leaves me thinking the Patriots will win the game but the Dolphins will cover.

    Cleveland (plus 2) at Baltimore:
    Last week weather forced an unexpected week off for Baltimore and it also effected a low-score game between the Browns and Pittsburgh. The Browns were the only team in the NFL to start with two home games, and yet they are 0-2. With road trips coming in their next 4 of 5 games, they are sorely in need of a win.

    The rest:
    Houston (+5) at Tennessee: Titans, Texans +5.

    Oakland (+9.5) at Buffalo: Bills, (–9.5).

    Carolina (+3) at Minnesota: Panthers (+3)

    Kansas City (+5) at Atlanta: Falcons, Chiefs +5

    Tampa Bay (+3) at Chicago: Bears (-3)

    Arizona (+3) at Washington: Cardinals (+3)

    St. Louis (+10) at Seattle: Seahawks, Rams +10

    Detroit (+4) at San Francisco: 49ers (-4)

    New Orleans (+5) at Denver: Broncos, Saints +5

    Jacksonville (+ 5.5) at Indianapolis: Colts (-5.5)

    Pittsburgh (+3) at Philadelphia: Steelers (+3)

    Monday

    New York Jets (+9) at San Diego: San Diego, Jets +9


    Last week: 10-5 straight up, 7-7-1 spread. Overall: 19-12; 15-14-1.

    Cool, I just went over the Citizen-Times about a half-hour ago looking to see if you had posted it yet. One of the few times during an NFL season that you will ever see me openly root for the Texans since their playing Pork Chop Adam's Tennessee bunch!

    I have to take issue with you on the Dallas / Green Bay Sunday Night game... Rodgers is still too untested to say that he will beat an excellent team and defense like that of Dallas. I think that he will get frazzled and turn the ball over. Dallas will win by atleast 7.

    Also I'm taking the Broncos over the Saints. Jay Cutler has been absolutely flawless this year, and with all of his weapons he should carve the Saints up. The Saints offense has looked anemic at times, and I don't think they will be able to score nearly enough, but they will score some. I am also considering taking the "Over" on this one, because of 2 good offenses -- and because of the scoring that went on when Denver played SD.

    thanks for the comments. I disagree Dallas having a great defense. I think during Monday night Football, both team's defensive coordinators were probably hiding their heads. And as far as a frazzled QB - Romo's the one with the 2 INTs - Rodgers has none.
    I like Denver to win, but, I, too, think it will be a high-scoring game, so I'll stick with the Saints and the points.

    BOL to you with your plays
