This has Been an Unpredictable Pro Season and My Picks Show it
This pro football season has been completely unpredictable so far. I make my picks each week and I feel good about them. Then Sunday comes and the bottom falls out. Hopefully, I've got some good picks for this week.
The Los Angeles Chargers have been a surprise team this year. I've never been a Philip Rivers fan but the QB is playing great, RB Melvin Gordon is finding the holes and their defense, even without DE Joey Bosa, is playing good. Tennessee looked awful last week. They gave up eleven sacks to Baltimore. I think the Chargers come out on top in London.
The Cleveland Browns have been the laughing stock of the league for years. But this year, they are a tough out. I'm officially on the Browns bandwagon. Baker Mayfield may finally be that QB they've been looking for and their defense looks great. Tampa Bay is, well, Tampa Bay. I don't have any confidence in their team. Cleveland gets their third win of the season.
New Orleans is now home to the leading passer (total yards) in league history, Drew Brees. The Saints offense is a joy to watch. Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram are a great running back tandem. Their receivers are unknown but getting the job done really well. They are in Baltimore Sunday. The Ravens got eleven sacks against Tennessee last weekend. They won't get that many against Brees but that defense will slow down the Saints offense. Baltimore wins.
