NFL Predictions Week 3: Dallas Goes to 0-3 and 10 Other Bold Locks
Normally I get pretty boring when it comes to predictions, but it's time to have a little fun at a few teams' expense.
The Dallas Cowboys have drama surrounding them, the Cincinnati Bengals always have drama on their sidelines, and the Packers, along with a few other teams, look to stay unbeaten.
Instead of going long-winded in my introduction, let's just get started with the introductions, shall we?
No. 10: Mike Singletary's Interviews Become a Little Less Awkward
Mike Singletary doesn't like being questioned
Mike Singletary didn't like the line of questioning and said he was "baited." Not sure I saw exactly when that moment happened, but the 49ers had the reporter asking the questions fired from his job.
Gee, a little touchy, aren't we?
Since when does the media have to watch what they say? Or ask for that matter?
At least the interviews will become a little less awkward after this weekend.
No. 9: Brett Favre Adds to His Interception Total

Four interceptions through two games, not to mention a lost fumble. Five turnovers.
When his friends went to get him back from retirement before this season started, I don't think they had this in mind.
Unfortunately for Favre, those interceptions will go up against Detroit this weekend.
No. 8: Kevin Kolb Will Fail, Enter Michael Vick

Eagles' head coach Andy Reid flip-flopped a few times over the last week as to who was going to be his starting quarterback come Sunday.
The fans wanted Michael Vick and, I'm sure in a way, Andy Reid might have wanted him as well. Unfortunately, Reid went with Kolb only because he had originally said it was his job no matter what. I guess he had to stick to his word.
Things will eventually change before the game ends and the fans will get their wish. The Eagles will see Michael Vick under center before the game ends.
No. 7: LaDainian Tomlinson Hits The Century Mark

LaDainian Tomlinson is getting that much closer to being where he was a few years ago. Running hard, making the same cuts, and feeling the same explosive speed he once felt.
This weekend, he'll hit the century mark against the Miami Dolphins and prove to the Chargers that they never should have given up on him.
No. 6: Jay Cutler and Aaron Rodgers Combine For Big Yardage

Two big passers will meet head-to-head on Monday night as Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears will take on Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.
Cutler has had to big weeks through the air and Aaron Rodgers had the same capability.
These two quarterbacks will put on a passing display and it wouldn't shock me if they went above 700 combined yards.
No. 5: Matt Ryan Outduels Drew Brees

The Atlanta Falcons will be in New Orleans to face the Saints.
Which means a veteran will face off against a young up and comer. The veteran is Drew Brees, the up and comer is Matt Ryan.
The two will face each other on Sunday and each has the ability to take over a game. In this one, the young one will outshine the veteran.
No. 4: Ocho and T.O. Go Without

Ocho Cinco and Terrell Owens didn't expect to have just one touchdown catch between the two of them. Well, they might as well get used to it, at least for another week.
That combined number won't change, at least not tomorrow.
No. 3: Denver Blitzes Their Way Past Indianapolis

The Denver Broncos know that Peyton Manning is going to be expecting the blitz. They know he's going to be looking for it.
What Peyton doesn't know is a way to stop the Broncos from getting to him on several occasions.
The Broncos will use that to outlast the Colts and keep Peyton Manning from taking the game over.
No. 2: San Diego Will Have Philip Rivers On The Sideline Before This Is Over

The San Diego Chargers will use a heavy dose of Philip Rivers to have a big lead over the Seattle Seahawks.
The Chargers will have this game well in hand and will be able to have Philip Rivers on the sidelines to rest by the third quarter.
We'll see Billy Volek under center before this one's over.
No. 1: Dallas Cowboys Will Drop To 0-3

The Dallas Cowboys are wondering what's gone wrong, but they don't have to look far. A bad play call just before halftime of the Redskins' game, a holding call that cost them a game-winning touchdown, a missed field goal, and questionable defense.
While I could go on and on about what has gone wrong for this team, it's about to get worse.
They'll visit the Houston Texans who have something to prove and they'll do just that on Sunday, adding another loss on top of the two the Cowboys' already have.
