2012 Week 3 NFL picks

Last week Packers beat the Bears in the first Thursday Night Football game of 2012 season. Since 2006, home teams are now 26-12 when playing on Thursday Night (opening games to start each NFL season not included).
As usual, I’ll start my weekly picks with a prediction of Thursday Night Football game.

New York Giants @ Carolina Panthers, Thursday 8:20 PM (ET). Carolina was an expansion team in 1995 and since then, this two teams played each other only 6 times. For the Giants it will be only their 3rd trip to Carolina and its on short week. Injuries continue to pile up for New York Giants. Carolina got its ground game going last week which will help slow down Giants’ pass rush. QB Cam Newton and Co. will be a tough task for the Giants.

  1. 7 medsebojnih, če štejemo tisto grozno tekmo končnice. Je bla pa ena od teh izjemno zanimiva in pomembna tekma, ko je šlo za #1 seed leta 2008.

    Jutri pa: ne pričakujem kakih izboljšav obrambe, spet bo Eli mogu razturat za zmago, bo pa Nicks zelo motiviran, že pol leta govori, da komi čaka prvo svojo NFL tekmo v domačem kraju.
