NFL Week 3: 15 Bold Predictions
Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE
Thanks to Steelers wideout Mike Wallace, the deep ball will be back in Oakland this weekend


Last week, there was little reason to be bold, especially when it came to picking winners. Just circle the home team on your schedule and you were in pretty good shape. Only two teams (Arizona and Houston) managed victories away from home, with the Cardinals' win in New England the only real shocker.

So what about this week? Well, the home-field advantage didn’t mean much to the Panthers on Thursday night as the banged-up Giants throttled Cam Newton and company at Carolina. And of the remaining six teams that are 2-0, four hit the road (Texans, 49ers, Eagles and Falcons), although Philadelphia and Atlanta travel to undefeated Arizona and San Diego, respectively.

So after a 23-9 start by the home teams this season, don’t be shocked if more than half of this week’s hosts come up short.

A bold pick? Perhaps not. We saved those for later.
