Three weeks into the season, and it is very clear that I don’t know anything about football. Oh, would you like me to expand upon that observation? Sure! Let’s look at the teams I picked to win their divisions and see how those teams are doing three weeks into the season, shall we?
NFC East: New York Giants, 0-3 – The Giants have been terrible so far this season. -61 point differential. In THREE GAMES!
NFC North: Minnesota Vikings 0-3 – People pin this solely on Christian Ponder, but the defense has been teeeeerrible. They gave up 30+ to the Browns!
NFC South: Atlanta Falcons 1-2 – A team with a win! Thank goodness for the Rams, I guess.
NFC West: Seattle Seahawks 3-0 – I did it! I picked a team that looks good so far! Playing the Jaguars will do that, though.
AFC East: New England Patriots 3-0 – I’m on a roll!
AFC North: Baltimore Ravens 2-1 – I mean, this looks good, but I should also note that I picked the Browns to make the playoffs.
AFC South: Houston Texans 2-1 – The Texans, while 2-1, are also -12 on point differential.
AFC West: Denver Broncos 2-0 – All right, so maybe I am in rougher shape in the NFC, but the teams I picked to win their divisions are 13-10. 3 games above .500 is not very impressive. My bad.
