Welcome to Week 3 for another Fresh Take Zone!!!! Last week was a surprise but not a shocker, with so many upsets in my opinion. It really makes you remember that all of these guys in the NFL are there for a reason and that on any given Sunday there is always a possibility of things taking a twist which reflected in my picks. My let down of the week were the Falcons, but let’s be honest we are talking about the Falcons. I have high hopes this season for them and I have faith that they will turn it around. My top games for this week are Denver vs. Seattle, Green Bay vs. Detroit and Tampa Bay vs. Atlanta.
This week I am looking for teams to fix weaknesses that they always show early on in each season and establish their strong points. It is very important, even though it is only Week 3, because the faster their true identity is developed they can grow.
With that said, I am looking forward to see how Denver fixes all of the mistakes that occur when closing a game, but in this case it’s too many and too soon. I have to say Denver will be over emotional and lose to the mean, head-banging Seahawks in a devastating loss.
The Green Bay Packers vs. the Detroit Lions is always a classic; but in this case I’m looking for the Packers to outplay the Lions. Mr. Johnson is a great WR and he will have a big game but they need more.
Lastly, the Falcons need this game against the Bucs for confidence and to get back on track. I believe that they have lots of talent but it’s not being utilized correctly. Falcons pull it off.
Every week in the NFL is exciting, we never seem to know early on which teams are the real deal. What we do know is that we love the game, and finding out who wants it the most every week is the best part of the process. Until next time.
