NFL Picks 2012: Week 3 Preseason Predictions
Week 2 of the preseason is in the books as the Eagles get the (ugly) cover for a 5-3 winning week.  Picks on sides haven't gone according to plan yet, but looking back I'm not sure I would've made any changes. Sometimes that's how things shake out.  

Week 3, otherwise known as the regular season "dress rehearsal",  is just around the corner. However, keep in mind that backups will be coming into the 3rd quarter for most teams and finishing off all the games in the 4th. Be careful not to assume that the top teams are going to go out there with the full intention on winning the game. It might be a regular season tune-up, but the games still don't count and coaches will continue to implement ulterior objectives.

Lines are up and they should settle in over the next 24 hours. We've already seen some action on sides and the 'overs' are getting hit across the board.  I should have some picks up over the next day or two, but I'm also looking ahead to Week 1 of the regular season, season win totals, and an updated set of power rankings - all of which will be posted over the next week.
