Week 3 NFL Picks: A Super Bowl Rematch Highlights Week 3 Action

Tennessee Titans (+7)* at Cincinnati Bengals

It’s time to stop pretending the Bengals aren’t one of the league’s best teams. If the Bills feel disrespected despite winning their first two games, the Bengals must be stirring after coming off back-to-back AFC North titles, yet still getting little recognition for their success. Andy Dalton is good. Cincinnati’s defense is even better. The two additives continue to result in wins.

Tennessee getting blown out by the Cowboys at home quickly burst the early season hype balloon surrounding the Titans. Like every other team in the NFL, however, Tennessee is neither as good as their road victory in Kansas City nor as bad as their home loss to Dallas. The Titans have the talent and coaching staff to make a legitimate push at the AFC South this season — especially if Indianapolis continues to struggle — but beating the Bengals on the road seems unlikely.

Tennessee hangs in the game to the end, but loses by a field goal, beating the spread in the process.
