I was going to start this article with a rant about the replacement officials, Roger Goodell, the owners, and Nickelback.  Well, the replacement official issue has been resolved.  So there goes that.  Oh wait….Niceklback.  Yeah, they suck.

So I’m having a rough season so far.  Really rough.  But I’ve still got time to turn it around.  Luckily week four is going to start with what should be an easy game to pick.

$10 says that, in saying that, I’ve jinxed it.

Let’s hit it.

As always, my picks will be in italics.

Browns @ Ravens – Let’s start with the positives about Cleveland.  They have a pretty decent defense.  Yup, that’s about it.  Okay that’s not entirely fair.  Trent Richardson is looking like a future stud at RB an Brandon Weeden has improved each week.  Now for the bad news…they have to go to Baltimore Thursday night.  Ouch.  The Ravens have been darn near unbeatable at home and in their division.  I’d also like to take this moment to send my condolences to Torrey Smith.  I’m an older brother and hearing the story about his younger brother’s death was just heartbreaking.  All of that aside, I’m going with the Ravens here.  They’re a far superior team in almost every way.  Obviously that doesn’t always translate to a win, but I just don’t see Cleveland making much noise in this game past the first quarter.  Give me the Ravens.

 

The rest of the games will be up by kickoff on Sunday.

Last week: 6-10 (Ouch)

Season: 25-23
