NFL Predictions Week 3: Home Teams That Will Be Destroyed
With Week 2 of the NFL regular season out of the way, the excitement over getting into the meat of the schedule is starting to drive fans mad. We want more football!
Which home team will suffer the worst loss?
Monday night's games may have ended only a few hours ago, but NFL fans are ready for the Thursday night matchup. In the meantime, we need some bold predictions for Sunday’s blowouts.
All of the following games will be huge wins for the road team, and you should consider these locks for Week 3.
Philadelphia at Arizona
After beating the New England Patriots in Foxborough, the Arizona Cardinals return to Phoenix to take on the Philadelphia Eagles.
As much as the big win over New England should send the Cardinals in the right direction, the confidence achieved after a win that unexpected is a double-edged sword. The Cardinals will underestimate the Eagles and overestimate themselves.
With Philadelphia coming off a huge win against the tough Baltimore Ravens, the Cardinals will have to bring their best from the first snap or risk going down early and never being able to catch up.
Prediction: Eagles 34, Cardinals 14
Detroit at Tennessee
The Tennessee Titans defense has been playing mediocre through the first two games, but they are getting no help at all. With Chris Johnson struggling, injuries piling up and Jake Locker just trying to survive, this is only going to get worse.
The Detroit Lions hit town Sunday and will destroy the Titans in their home stadium. Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson will take great pride in filling the stat columns against a Titans defense that will spend more time on the field than any unit should.
If Locker and Johnson can’t figure out how to stop the three-and-out syndrome the team has come down with, the Lions will devastate the team and its fanbase with a lopsided beating.
Prediction: Lions 37, Titans 10
San Francisco at Minnesota
After beating the Green Bay Packers in Week 1 and the Detroit Lions in Week 2, the San Francisco 49ers will head to Minnesota to square off with the Vikings.
The Vikings offense may be playing better than most experts believed they would, but they are still no match for the tough defense of the 49ers.
With the San Fran offense moving the ball consistently, the porous Minnesota secondary will be picked apart throughout the day.
If Alex Smith can stay on the straight-and-narrow and keep the ball protected, Frank Gore and the rushing attack will give Smith breathing enough room to find his open receivers. The Vikings will get garbage points late in the game, but this will be San Francisco all the way.
Prediction: 49ers 30, Vikings 17
