The Colts review well placed to demolished the Jaguars in London, and the Seahawks should have too much to hit the Plane. Plus, take part in our tip-off contest

Life are a lot of little whodunits. Why does the feline beg to be let on, but then rejecting to do so formerly the back door has been opened? What is the flavour of Irn-Bru? And if Tom Brady didnt wishes to tan his butt, then wouldnt it ought to have easier merely to keep his shorts on in the first place?

If youre searching rebuttals, then you could probably do worse than turning now to downthewikihole , Ledzeparuba , ProfessorAwesome , SaintJames , Simpson9 087 , and Steve Mansfield the only beings to correctly prophesy every game in week three of our Pick Six contest. You can give them a pat on the back while youre at it.

Full puts will appear in the comments section shortly, but until then, here are this weeks recreations 😛 TAGEND

Indianapolis Colts@ Jacksonville Jaguars( Sunday 9.30 am ET/ 2.30 pm BST)

The stakes could not be higher for Gus Bradley and the Jaguars for their trip to London. This was supposed to be its first year in which the Jacksonville rebuild eventually came to fruition; instead, the Jags are 0-3 and staring at another lost season. They guided Baltimore deep into the fourth quarter on Sunday, but threw the game away with sloppy mistakes and cowardly offensive play-calling. The expertise is there, on both sides of the projectile now, and it is quite possible to see a scenario in which Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns passing wild against Indys porous secondary. But the Colts are strengthened by the likely revert of cornerback Patrick Robinson from concussion, and I find it increasingly hard to back Bradley in any matchup at this object. His 12 -3 9 record ranks him 169 th out of the 170 NFL head coaches who have ever made 50+ games.

Colts prevail

Seattle Seahawks@ New York Jets( Sunday 1pm ET/ 6pm BST)

On the evidence of last weekend, this looks just like a non-contest. The Jets offense was a automobile crash in Kansas City, rotating the ball over eight epoches. Seattle, meanwhile, were starting look like their old-time selves as they set 37 levels on San Francisco. But does that mean we should forget about how they oversaw only a single touchdown in two tournaments against the Dolphins and Rams? And exactly what we we to induce of Russell Wilsons knee sprain? Pete Carroll is confident the quarterback will play on Sunday, but will he be his usual mobile ego? Ought we not likewise to give the Aircrafts security their due, impounding Kansas City to 24 points despite the repeated giveaways on the other side of the pellet? With the Seahawks travelling cross country, I think this will be close. But, in the end, Im still leaning their behavior.

Seahawks to acquire

Carolina Panthers@ Atlanta Falcons( Sunday 1pm ET/ 6pm BST)

The Broncos endowed the tournament with a template for defeating Cam Newton, and then the Vikings perfected it. Relentless pres is the key to slowing down the reigning MVP, and Minnesota extradited it like ever been as they sacked him eight experiences and hit him 12 more on the path to a 22 -1 0 acquire. It goes without saying that Atlantas coaches will be analyse the cinema and go looking for ways to repeat such success. But do they have the personnel to do it?

A meagre three bags in three tournaments( exclusively the Steelers have fewer) intimate not. Vic Beasley is still not living up to the billing that he received as the No8 overall collect in 2015, and Dwight Freeney plays too few downs nowadays to reign. Newton can be his own worst foe, hampering onto the ball too long, but it shouldnt thing against opposings who dont has been able to establish him pay.

Panthers to triumph

Detroit Lions@ Chicago Bears( Sunday 1pm ET/ 6pm BST)

Are the Bears the most difficult crew in the National Football League? They certainly own the most difficult places differential( -3 8) through three recreations, and are currently dealing here injuries to both their favorite starting quarterback and running back. Almost as significant has been the loss of nose tackle Eddie Goldman, a reigning proximity when healthy in the middle of the defensive direction. The Lion, with an incompatible running game, are not best residence to manipulate his absence but they do at the least have something going on offense with Matthew Stafford and Marvin Jones.

Lions to prevail

Oakland Raiders@ Baltimore Ravens( Sunday 1pm ET/ 6pm BST)

One of just five units still undefeated after three plays, are the Ravens contenders or have they simply benefited from a generous early season schedule? They have drummed the Bills, Browns and Jaguars by a combined total of only 13 extents. A defense that has given up less than 260 yards per activity will be tested in new ways by a Raiders offense that is averaging more than 430. In particular, Ill be interested to see how cornerbacks Shareece Wright and Jimmy Smith handle their matchup with Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree.

But I like Baltimore to slow down an Oakland running game that is not a strong as the numbers through three weeks indicate, and I also think this might be one of those activities where the purposes of cross-country circulate and an early time slot come to bear.

Ravens to prevail

Dallas Cowboys@ San Francisco 49 ers( Sunday 4.25 pm ET/ 9.25 pm BST)

Will Dez Bryant play on Sunday? The statements hairline rupture in knee do not bang specially conducive to playing in a brutal collision athletic, but Dallas manager coach Jason Garrett was still refusing to rule out his stellar receiver on Wednesday. The Cowboys have farther trauma questions to address, more, with left patrol Lael Collins snapping a ligament in his paw that could obstruct him out of action for up to 10 weeks. But Ron Leary is a solid replacing, and I would still expect Dallas to be able to run the projectile effectively against antagonists who have given up consecutive 100 -yard activities to Fozzy Whittaker and Christine Michael.

Then again, Dallass own haste protection has been made to look better than it really is by succeeding competitions against resists who either wouldnt or couldnt commit to the field game. I expect Carlos Hyde to have a productive afternoon, this is something that competition might come down to which of Blaine Gabbert or Dak Prescott can establish the difference. With or without Bryant, Im taking the rookie.

Cowboys to triumph
