NFL Week 3 Picks

Week Three kicks off on Prime Video with a classic and ancient NFL rivalry matchup of the Cleveland Browns hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Cleveland Browns have had a tumultuous offseason that leads to questions about their championship viability for the 2022 season.

Quarterback Baker Mayfield received the ultimate vote of no confidence when the Browns acquired troubled Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson. Adding to the quarterback intrigue is the Pittsburgh Steelers' number one draft pick Kenny Pickett, who is expected to dethrone Mitch Trubisky as the starter.

In the 2020 season, Baker Mayfield led the Browns to the AFC Playoffs and a wild card win at Pittsburgh. Mayfield was seen as having finally matured into a reliable pro quarterback. As a result of that great leap forward, Cleveland was a trendy pick for the 2021 future market. But the Browns took two steps back in 2021 with an 8-9 record, and Mayfield took much of the blame. As it turns out, Mayfield has not matured nearly to the level required of a championship quarterback. But the acquisition of Deshaun Watson is a curious one.

Watson sat out the 2021 season because of a litany of sexual assault accusations. Although the allegations never went forward on a criminal basis, Watson still faces civil cases. And with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell being politically correct to the point of being nauseating, Watson’s arrival raises many eyebrows.

Cleveland has been a franchise that can never quite get out of its own way. Owner Jimmy Haslam rates in the bottom category with Daniel Snyder of Washington and Woody Johnson of the Jets for ineptitude.

Meanwhile, Pittsburgh is turning the page from the retired Ben Roethlisberger. Nobody wanted the discredited Mitch Trubisky as the starting quarterback. Thus, the selection of Kenny Pickett was cause for wild celebrations in the Steel City. Pickett became a Heisman Trophy finalist at the University of Pittsburgh. Pitt uses the same practice and training facilities as the Steelers, where Pickett developed relationships with the NFL club that was able to monitor him closely.

NBC Sunday Night Football delivers the San Francisco 49ers at the Denver Broncos. There is a rivalry component to this matchup. Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson had numerous high-stakes clashes against the 49ers as the quarterback of the Seattle Seahawks. The 49ers are planning to start Trey Lance at quarterback, but nobody would be surprised if Jimmy Garoppolo takes over if Lance struggles. And if Jimmy G hasn’t been traded from the team.

Last year Garoppolo led the 49ers to the NFC Championship Game. And he won over his teammates with universal acclaim for his courage and resiliency. If the 49ers are struggling, things could get quite interesting for head coach Kyle Shanahan.

Monday Night Football brings an NFC East rivalry matchup of the New York Giants hosting the Dallas Cowboys. The two-year experiment of the head coach Joe Judge amateur hour has ended. Judge was proven to be way over his head as the head G-Man. Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll takes over and brings the credibility that Judge never had. Daboll will be charged with getting Daniel Jones up to speed. Jones has been labeled a draft bust after going fourth overall in 2019. But the Giants ownership has admitted that Jones has not had enough help from the rest of the roster.
