Last Week: 8-8Weeks 1-3: 23-24-1Home team in聽bold. Odds taken from Odds Shark.Green Bay (-9.5) vs. BuffaloBuffalo surprised just about everyone vs. Minnesota last week [url=http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authentic-jake-rudock-jersey]Jake Rudock Jersey[/url] , including myself. But can they do it back-to-back weeks.. On the road against a Packers team looking for a bounce-back win? I have my doubts.Pick: Green Bay (-9.5)Atlanta (-3.5) vs. CincinnatiBoth of these teams have issues on defense, so this one should be high scoring. With new weapon Calvin Ridley & Julio Jones leading the way, the Falcons take it at home.Pick: Atlanta (-3.5)Dallas (-3) vs. DetroitLast week, for the first time since 2013, the Detroit Lions had a running back rush for 100 yards. That is crazy. The Lions aren’t as bad as their start to the season made them look, but I’ll take the Cowboys at home.Pick: Dallas (-3)Indianapolis (-1) vs. HoustonThe winless Texas DESPERATELY need a victory to kickstart & keep their season alive. I think they get it in Indy.Pick: Houston (+1)New England (-7) vs. MiamiCan’t see New England dropping three straight.Pick: New England (-7)Jacksonville (-7.5) vs. New York JetsThe Jaguars defense gets a struggling rookie (Sam Darnold) at home. Expect a few turnovers and a bounce back win.Pick: Jacksonville (-7.5)Philadelphia (-3) vs. TennesseeThis seems to be a popular upset pick, but the Titans offense has averaged just a tad more than 16 points per game in their first three contests. The champs get it done and cover on the road.Pick: Philadelphia (-3)Chicago (-3) vs. Tampa BayThis Bears defense is GOOD.Pick: Chicago (-3)Oakland (-2.5) vs. ClevelandAll three winless teams get their first victory this week.Pick: Oakland (-2.5)Seattle (-3) vs. Arizona聽Sam Darnold won his first career start. The other top SoCal quarterback to come out of the draft, Josh Rosen [url=http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authentic-matt-prater-jersey]Matt Prater Jersey White[/url] , will earn one too.Pick: Arizona (+3)New Orleans (-3) vs. New York GiantsDrew Brees is 39. Eli Manning is 37. Both have good performances in one of the better games of the weekend.Pick: New Orleans (-3)Los Angeles Chargers (-10) vs. San Francisco 49ersWith Jimmy G out, the rest of this season is looking pretty bleak for the 49ers.Pick: Los Angeles Chargers (-10)Pittsburgh (-3) vs. BaltimoreThese games are almost always close.Pick: Baltimore (+3)Kansas City (-4.5) vs. Denver聽Can’t bet against Mahomes…. right now, at least. Also, KC is riding a five game winning streak over Denver.Pick: Kansas City (-4.5) ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions were the laughingstock of the league when they drafted wide receivers in the first round three straight years from 2003 to 2005, and none of them panned out for the franchise.Detroit drafted tight ends in the first round twice over the past decade and ended up releasing both players.Putting history aside, it looks as if the Lions need help at tight end and wide receiver during the draft after largely ignoring both positions in recent years. Detroit has the No. 8 selection overall and a total of nine picks, including a pair in each of the last two rounds.Since 2014 [url=http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authentic-trey-flowers-jersey]Trey Flowers Jersey White[/url] , Detroit has drafted only one receiver and one tight end and both picks were made two years ago.Receiver Kenny Golladay , a third-rounder, has become a promising player while tight end, Michael Roberts, a fourth-round pick, has not been very productive.The Lions can’t be sure how receiver Marvin Jones will bounce back from a season-ending knee injury and they have only a short-term solution at slot receiver, signing 33-year-old Danny Amendola in free agency.They attempted to address their desperate need at tight end this offseason, signing free agent Jesse James [url=http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authentic-levine-toilolo-jersey]http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authentic-levine-toilolo-jersey[/url] , but they don’t seem to be satisfied.“We’re going to do the best we can to obviously try to improve that situation for us, whether it’s through free agency or the draft,” Lions coach Matt Patricia said.“We’re looking at those guys pretty hard and trying to make sure we get somebody in there that puts as much stress on the defense as possible.”Former Lions general manager Matt Millen believed the NFL was becoming a pass-happy league. Millen did correctly predict the future trend, but he missed on key picks.Quarterback Joey Harrington was a bust as were receivers Charles Rogers and Mike Williams while Roy Williams had a decent career before being traded to Dallas.Fans in the Motor City were not happy the franchise used first-round picks on tight end Ebron in 2014 and Brandon Pettigrew in 2009 and may not like it if general manager Bob Quinn drafts Iowa tight end T.J. Hockenson early in the first round.“In all due respect to the fans out there, I can’t take the fan sentiment into who I draft and who I sign,” Quinn said.Here are other things to watch when Detroit drafts:TRADE TALKQuinn sounds very interested in acquiring extra selections to slide down in the draft in exchange for the No. 8 pick.“There’s a couple of players right at the top that you would obviously would love to have,” Quinn said. “I just don’t think I have enough ammunition to get up there.“I’d rather move back a couple spots.”If Quinn backs up his talk with action and moves down, he may draft a wide receiver such as Oklahoma’s Marquise Brown [url=http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authentic-ricky-wagner-jersey]Womens Ricky Wagner Jersey[/url] , Mississippi’s D.K. Metcalf or A.J. Brown.SOUTHERN FLAVORQuinn has drafted seven players from the Southeastern Conference the past two years, including both first- and second-round picks. The trend may continue with him taking LSU linebacker Devin White and Alabama offensive lineman Jonah Williams in the first round.NEW TERRIORTYDetroit reached double digits in losses last year in Patricia’s debut season for the first time since 2012, giving it the No. 8 pick overall. Quinn had the No. 20 pick last year, No. 21 in 2017 and No. 16 three years ago in his debut as a general manager after helping the New England Patriots scout for prospects to take late in the first round for many years.“This is unchartered territory for me,” Quinn said. “I don’t really love it.”BEST AVAILABLEThe Lions addressed many needs in free agency , signing player such as defensive end Trey Flowers and cornerbacks Justin Coleman , to put any position in play during the draft.“With what the board looks like and what our perceived needs are, probably a little bit more pushing toward the best available player [url=http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authentic-dwayne-washington-jersey]Womens Dwayne Washington Jersey[/url] ,” Quinn said.“I think that’s a good thing. Now, things can change between now and September. But going into it this year, we feel a little bit better about the depth at certain positions.”HELP UP FRONTQuinn might not draft an offensive lineman in the first round for the third time in four years, but it seems likely he will take at least one player to add depth.“It’s a position we studied really hard,” Quinn said. “Our offensive line coaches were out more than in previous years. There’s good depth at that position from the first round all the way down to the fifth and sixth round, a little bit more on the interior.”
