5 NFL Teams Guaranteed to Lose in Week 3

Josh Zerkle@JoshZerkleChief Writer IIISeptember 17, 2012

Joe Namath gave one famous guarantee in January 1969. Today, I'm giving you five, as in five teams guaranteed to leave with losses in Week 3.

The easy one here is Minnesota, who drew the short straw and must play San Francisco, arguably the NFL's best team right now. And the Vikings will play right into the 49ers' hands, trying to establish the run against the best front seven in the league.

Another rudderless outfit is the Cincinnati Bengals. They edged out a win against the Browns last weekend, but still have a lot to prove on the defensive side of the ball. In a season where many pundits picked the Bengals to make the playoffs (and even win their division), Cincinnati seems to be underperforming.

If you want the other guarantees, you've gotta watch the video. And I hope that none of you are actually calling 1-900-BLEACHER. That's just our little joke.

Anyway, check out all of my guarantees in my latest video above and leave your own team guaranteed to lose in the comments. Thanks for watching.
