In the third week of the NFL season, we have seen some great performances both in the offensive and defensive lines. The top five NFL picks for week three include a battle between two of the most decorated defensive players in football, Jacksonville Jaguar’s Deangelo Williams and Tennessee Titans’ Chris Johnson. Both players displayed great play in their respective games. Williams plays on one of the best defensive lines in football and is coming off one of the best performances of his career thus far.
During the week three week, there were a couple of other defensive players that played well too. Among them was Denver Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller who had an impressive sack in the first quarter to put the Broncos in the lead. During the second quarter, Raiders wide receiver Andre Johnson caught a touchdown pass and ran back the ball for a score. Pittsburgh Steelers’ tackle James Harrison also had a great game as he sack Joe Flacco in the first quarter. Overall, this was a great game by all involved. Williams and Johnson look like the top two selections in our next top five NFL picks.
With the top five NFL picks being established, it is time to move on to the next tier of NFL contenders. Who will make it to the top five? That answer should not be difficult as the overall talent level in this division is quite good. Some of the players that are deserving to be in the top five include Tennessee Titans’ Chris Johnson, Houston Texans’ Ben Kampman, Minnesota Vikings’ Brett Peterson, and Atlanta Falcons’ Howard Sterner.
So who might be relegated to the bottom of the rankings though? It appears as if the Dallas Cowboys could be in trouble. They lost to the Eagles in Philadelphia last week and suffered their first loss of the year. They also have yet to win this season by more than a single point. Things don’t look good for a team that is still tied with the Eagles at the bottom of the division.
The Houston Texans have been playing great football lately. They beat the then-undefeated New Orleans Saints last week and followed that up with a convincing victory over the Indianapolis Colts. Now they will try to take down the Super Bowl champs in Carolina. This is a must-win situation for Houston. The bottom three are still very winnable though. If the Texans can pull off a huge upset over the Panthers, they will be one step closer to taking over the top five.
So what can you expect these days in this tough division? The bottom three usually consist of the previously mentioned Eagles, Texans, and Panthers. These teams will battle it out for first place until the final week of the season.
Who do you trust though? I’ll tell you. I’m going to continue with my solid top-five NFL picks for this week. My bottom three include the previously mentioned Saints, Texans, and Panthers. I’m confident that by the end of the week, I will have changed my mind and had switched teams.
