Hello football fans! Welcome to Week 3 of the 2016 NFL season.

First, let’s discuss Week 2. The New York Jets ended their five-game skid against the Buffalo Bills with a convincing Thursday night performance. Meanwhile, the Seattle Seahawks continue to lose against the Los Angeles Rams.

It could be worse for Seattle; they could be winless.

Just ask the New Orleans Saints, who couldn’t get the job done against the surprisingly undefeated New York Giants. The G-Men are tied for first atop the NFC East with the Philadelphia Eagles, who could have a real blue chipper in new quarterback Carson Wentz.

On the injury front, the buildup keeps growing on the running back front. Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson suffered a torn meniscus and is unlikely to play against Carolina this week. Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin will miss up to three weeks due to a hamstring injury. San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL.

Tampa Bay will host the Rams, while the Chargers trek to Indianapolis and face the Colts.

Speaking of injuries, the New England Patriots might not have Jimmy Garoppolo at quarterback. Although, numerous reports state the Patriots hope Garoppolo makes Thursday’s start when they host Houston.

I went 9-7 for Week 2, bringing my total to 18-14 for the season. Here’s a recap of what I got right and wrong:

 Thu Sep 15 8:25 pm  New York Jets  Buffalo Bills
 Sun Sep 18 1:00 pm  Baltimore Ravens  Cleveland Browns
  1:00 pm  Cincinnati Bengals  Pittsburgh Steelers
  1:00 pm  Dallas Cowboys  Washington Redskins X
  1:00 pm  Kansas City Chiefs  Houston Texans (s.o.)
  1:00 pm  Miami Dolphins  New England Patriots
  1:00 pm  New Orleans Saints  New York Giants
  1:00 pm  San Francisco 49ers  Carolina Panthers

  4:25 pm  Jacksonville Jaguars  San Diego Chargers X
  8:30 pm  Green Bay Packers  Minnesota Vikings X
 Mon Sep 19 8:30 pm  Philadelphia Eagles  Chicago Bears X

Here are my picks for this week. Remember, the s.o. stands for the shut-out pick:

 Thu Sep 22 8:25 pm  Houston Texans  New England Patriots
 Sun Sep 25 1:00 pm  Arizona Cardinals  Buffalo Bills
