Week 3 NFL Picks See Patriots Falling to 1-2, Andrew Luck Leading Colts to 2-1 Start (Podcast)

Week 3 NFL Picks See Patriots Falling to 1-2, Andrew Luck Leading Colts to 2-1 Start (Podcast)Take a quick look at the NFL standings, and one thing might really catch your eye. That one thing would be the incredible volume of football teams that are 1-1 with Week 3 set to open Thursday night.

In all, there are 20 teams in football with a 1-1 record, and there have been plenty of those clubs that looked great one week and awful another.

The Patriots are one of those teams — as are the Ravens, to a lesser extent — and they'll meet on Sunday night in Baltmore. It's a rematch of the AFC championship with the venues reversed, and there's plenty on the line for the two conference powers.

This week's NESN.com NFL picks podcast struggled with that one, but in the end, NESN.com senior assistant editor Mike Cole and assistant editor Ricky Doyle both see this one going to Ray Lewis and Co.

See the rest of their picks below, and get the breakdown (and a near fire) in the podcast below.
