o last week I got my nose rubbed in it. Pat went 2-0 with his on-air picks, Browns and Eagles. I went 1-2 with my Pigskin Picks Week 1 write-up. Not a great start. Kind of like some of the best QBs in the NFL. I came out a bit rusty. Pigskin Picks Week 2 should have the rust shaken off. Maybe. No official Eagles pick this week from myself or Pat, but unofficially we both like them to cover tonight (writing this on Thursday morning.) As always Pigskin Picks is brought to you by Parx Casino and Sportsbook – this is how you win – must be 21 – gambling problem call 1-800-gambler.
Last week’s Record: 1-2. Overall Record: 1-2.
Dolphins @ Patriots. MIA -2
As long as Tua stays healthy this Dolphins offense is going to be unbelievable. They are a world-class track team that can also play football really well. You can’t keep up with Tyreek Hill or Jalen Waddle. If Tua Tagovailoa hits them in stride, good night. If Raheem Mostert gets the edge or some open field, goodbye. Miami’s offense all hinges on Tua’s health. Last season he had a couple of concussions, 1 of which was a pretty scary scene, and we saw a big drop in what their weapons could do. Two weeks into the season I believe he’ll stay healthy. Dolphins cover the 2 in Foxboro Sunday night.
PICK – Dolphins
Chicago @ Tampa. TAM -3
Baker Mayfield got a win in his first start in Tampa, but that was partially due to the Vikings constantly giving them a short field. Chicago got owned by another Packers QB at home and Justin Fields only had 59 rushing yards. I’m feeling Justin Fields doesn’t stay under 60 yards rushing 2 weeks in a row, and that their big offseason addition only has 2 catches for 25 yards. Bears go into Tampa to cover the 3 for no other reason than I trust Justin Fields more than Baker Mayfield.
PICK – Bears
Jets @ Cowboys. DAL -9.5
I’m about to gross myself out for the first time this season. The Dallas defense is absurdly good. Zach Wilson is a really bad quarterback. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Jets don’t score a TD in this game until garbage time. The Jets also have a really good defense that might make this game close for a bit. The issue for them will be how much of a break does their offense give them? If they are constantly going 3 and out then the defense is going to wear down and have nothing left by halftime. My heart is screaming screw the Cowboys! J-E-T-S! Jets, Jets, Jets! My brain says not a chance. Cowboys crush Jets fan’s spirits even more, if that’s even possible.
PICK – Cowboys
