NFL Confidence Pool Picks Week 3
We’re going into Week 3 of the NFL season. Every week I will provide you with my favorite to least favorite games according to how confident I am in the outcome straight up. Remember, all picks will be picked without using the spread. I look forward to giving you the best chance to win your NFL Confidence pool each week and throughout the entirety of the 2020-21 season.
As the years have gone on, Confidence Pools have become very popular. If you’re unfamiliar with confidence pools, here's a rundown of the concept. Each week you will pick every game and the team you believe will win that game straight up. It’s always good to sprinkle in some underdogs that are adding points to their score! Let’s defeat your entire pool!
Week 1 Confidence List (Most Confidence to Least Confidence)
Jets @ Colts: The Jets might not win a game this season. I’m serious. The Colts offense and defense has looked stellar to begin the season. The spread is 10.5 for a reason. I’m confident. Take the Colts.
Raiders @ Patriots: The Patriots defense is one of the best in the league, and it’ll be like that for a while. The Raiders offense has shown glimpse of excellence, but that stops against the Patriots. Take the Patriots.
Texans @ Steelers: The Steelers defense will finish the season as one of the best. The Texans offense was supposed to be better than how they started the season. That would change on Sunday. The Steelers blitz, pressure, and get tackles for losses aplenty. Take the Steelers.
Lions @ Cardinals: Kyler Murray is an MVP candidate this season. He’s got so many weapons around him. How will the Lions defense stop the Cardinals when they allowed the Packers to score all over them? Take the Cardinals.
Buccaneers @ Broncos: The Broncos would like to run the ball in this game without Drew Lock, but the Buccaneers have one of the better rushing defenses in the league. Tom Brady will get the job done offensively. Take the Buccaneers.
Titans @ Vikings: The Titans are proving exactly why they were in the AFC Championship last season. This team can do it all offensively and has a defense that is quality all around. The Vikings have struggled, and that shouldn’t stop against the Titans. Take the Titans.
Cowboys @ Seahawks: If the Cowboys go down early in this one, there’s no coming back. We’ve got two very talented teams facing off against each other. The Seahawks defense needs to be better just like the Cowboys. Plenty of points will be scored, but I’ll ride the Seahawks to win late. Take the Seahawks.
Dolphins @ Jaguars: The Jaguars offense doesn’t seem like a fluke behind Gardner Minshew. Meanwhile, Ryan Fitzpatrick likes to rally his troops back in games. The Jaguars have enough defensively to stop Fitzpatrick for a couple drives. Take the Jaguars.
Bears @ Falcons: I’m not confident in the Falcons. And after seeing the Bears defense last week against the Giants, it’s hard to go up against the 2-0 Bears. But I’d expect the Falcons to come into this game upset and play with a chip on their shoulder. Take the Falcons.
49ers @ Giants : Neither team is healthy. The Giants have their starting quarterback, but the 49ers don’t. There can absolutely be an upset in this game. I’m not confident, but I’ll ride with the NFC champs. Take the 49ers.
Bengals @ Eagles: Both secondaries in this game have not looked good to start the season. It’s hard to take a rookie in this spot but Carson Wentz has literally made rookie mistakes and doesn’t have his rookie wide receiver, Jalen Reagor. The Eagles are, again, on upset alert. Take the Bengals.
Rams @ Bills: The day-game of the week is here. The Bills have surprised teams this season with their passing game, but the Rams have a secondary of big faces and big names that are up for the challenge. Take the Rams.
Football Team @ Browns: If you’re high on either of these teams, I’d reassess. The Browns are full of talent but will struggle against better teams. They won’t have to worry about a young Football Team though. They’ll get their touchdowns in this one. Take the Browns.
Panthers @ Chargers: The Chargers will give Justin Herbert another start only because Tyrod Taylor literally can’t. He looked solid and stuck with Patrick Mahomes in his first rookie start. The defense played well and had a great rushing defense. Christian McCaffrey is out, so the Panthers will rely heavily on Teddy Bridgewater’s arm. Not a fan. Take the Chargers.
Packers @ Saints Rodgers and the Packers looked great against the Lions on Sunday, while the Saints looked below average against the Raiders, who don’t have a solid defense, especially on paper. Take the Packers.
Chiefs @ Ravens: The Ravens offense is clicking on all cylinders, but the Chiefs aren’t. Patrick Mahomes struggled against the Chargers. And if that’s the case, he’ll absolutely struggle against the Ravens defense. Take the Ravens.
