NFL Picks Week 3 2018: Game Predictions by Football Writers

New, comments

Predicting the winners of this week’s NFL games.

NFL: Washington Redskins at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Bleeding Green Nation writers picks are in for Week 3 of the 2018 regular season schedule! Each week we’ll predict the winners of each and every NFL game. We’ll tally the results along the way and see who comes out on top at the end of the season.

After Week 2, Benjamin Solak has a narrow first place lead. We’ll see if he can hang on to it.

The Philadelphia Eagles are home favorites against the Indianapolis Colts this week. For the first time all season, none of the BGN writers are picking against them!

As it turns out, Colts fans don’t seem to be picking against the Eagles, either. SB Nation’s FanPulse results show that Colts fans polled from Stampede Blue have the Eagles as one-point favorites. BGN’s FanPulse results, meanwhile, have the Eagles favored by nine points this week.

Feel free to post your own predictions or discuss the writer predictions in the comments. You can also vote for who you think will win the games. I’ll tally those results in a “BGN Community” column. Vote in the polls beneath the table. (Click here if you can’t see the polls.)

Let’s get to this week’s picks!
