Week 3 Look Ahead

This year I made the incredibly poor decision to compete with my husband. We are doing “straight pick’ems”—this means we each just pick the winner of each game, and whoever picks the most games correctly wins. So far, I am 0-2. I have got to step it up this week!

Here are my thoughts for the upcoming week:

A Notable Game:
Dallas @ Houston

Dallas is probably the biggest disappointment of the season, based on their 0-2 record. They certainly haven’t lived up to the pre-season hype. Houston is the complete opposite—they weren’t expected to get far at all, but they are 2-0 with a win against Peyton Manning and the Colts. These teams aren’t in the same division, but a win by Houston will put them squarely on top of their division; Dallas’s corresponding loss would plummet them into an 0-3 hole. There is a lot on the line for both teams!

A Player To Watch:
Michael Vick

Are you familiar with Michael Vick? He was a college star at Virginia Tech, and continued to be notable as he moved to the NFL. And then it was discovered that he was a huge asshole. He was breeding and fighting dogs. I HATE HATE people who hurt dogs. Vick ended up in jail. He deserved it, in my dog-loving opinion. Anyways, he has returned to the NFL as the back-up QB for the Eagles. After the starting QB was injured last week, Vick had a stellar performance in a victory over the Detroit Lions. Here’s the question: can he repeat it against the Jaguars?

Rooting for the Underdog:

Seattle Seahawks

As a girl, I reserve the right to pick teams based on anything—from their outstanding offensive line to their team colors and cute QBs. So this week I’m rooting for the Seahawks. My reason is this: I spent 3 years living in Washington State, so I like the Seahawks. The End. They are expected to lose to the San Diego Chargers, but I hope they can find a way to pull out a win!

Which team do you always secretly root for?
