Here are my early predictions for week 3 of the NFL preseason. Check back during the week for the rest.
Odds for these games will change, so be sure to keep checking here.
Philadelphia Eagles vs Kansas City Chiefs - PHI
Last week the Eagles laid an egg vs the Bengals, but that should turn around when they play one of the youngest teams in the NFL on Friday. The biggest problem the Eagles had was on their O-line who gave their QB's next to no time to find their receivers. That should change this week as they get one of their most consistent guards back - Todd Herremans. The O-line will also be aided by the fact that KC doesn't have a sack in two games yet. David Akers bruised his heel, but he will play as well. The Chiefs lineup right now is a mix-mash of fluctuating talent and most of Cassel's success last week came against 2nd stringers. Prediction: Bank PHI.
Atlanta Falcons vs Miami Dolphins - ATL
It is unlikely that Dunta Robinson will play against MIA, but they will win without him. The ATL starters are expected to see about 35 snaps this game which is more than enough time to build a lead. Matt Ryan should have time to make some big plays because MIA has not been able to get to the QB without blitzing and their young corners have struggled. Brandon Marshall may or may not be injured, but MIA will err on the side of caution if he's nicked up. Prediction: Bank ATL.
