It was a pretty miserable week for yours truly picking games last week, as I managed to go just 7-8 straight-up and an absolutely awful 4-10-1 against the spread for Week 2 of the NFL season. I managed to get Week 3 off to a rip-roaring start by picking the Carolina Panthers to beat the New York Giants. Wasn't too far off, I guess. . .I mean, Carolina only lost by 29 points. At home.
Yeah, that was ugly.
With time running short and yours truly having had enough real-life interference to prevent me from getting my picks finished until the last minute here, I'm just going to give you the picks without the usual analysis. Quite frankly, it might be better that way, given how last week went.
So, with that, here are the picks for Week 3 of the 2012 NFL season. Point spreads are once again brought to you by our friends at OddsShark.
