FIWK Thursday NFL Quick Pick - Week 3

Getting this up for the Thursday game early, then blowing out a bigger list prior to the weekend's games...

PHILADELPHIA vs. Kansas City -3.0
This is an interesting game because Kansas City is a pretty good team (and way better than last year... new QB + coach will do that).  As a Chargers fan, I wish they weren't, but unfortunately they make me really scared in the division.  That being said, I think San Diego is pretty good too and their win over the Eagles isn't exactly a referendum on the Eagles sucking.

Can Kansas City play the same kind of ball possession football that San Diego used to beat Philly?  With Alex Smith, Jamaal Charles, and solid receivers, you'd think they can eat up some clock and pick up first downs.  And their defense is pretty good.

All that being said, I still think Philadelphia is really good, and since they're at home I feel comfortable taking them as a field goal favorites.  But it's not a game I'd feel comfortable putting money on.

How about you guys?


  1. Definitely staying away from this game. If I had to go w/ something, I'd put a small amount of Philly to cover.

    I think an interesting - and a bit contrarian - bet would be to parlay Philly and the under (51).

  2. I picked KC in our Pick'em and would have picked them here too.

  3. Scott - correct about the under, incorrect about Philly.

    Too bad you didn't pick KC on here Aaron.

  4. I was busy golfing. No regrets.
