Week three of the 2022 NFL season has arrived! Fans are in for some very exciting games over the next seven days and analysts around the country are busy making their picks. Sports Harbor is here to provide a few bold NFL Week 3 predictions.
Several major upsets have already taken place this season. Many are expecting more of these upset victories during week three.
Biggest NFL Matchups in Week 3
The first game of week 3 takes place tomorrow between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns. It’s a fun game between two teams that have gone 1-1 so far this season. It should be an excellent matchup between two teams with different skills.
The Buffalo Bills are slated to take on the Miami Dolphins on Sunday morning. The Bills have looked incredible so far this season and remain the Super Bowl betting favorites. Miami has shown some promise, too, going 2-0 through two games.
Monday Night Football pits the Dallas Cowboys against the New York Giants. The Cowboys are still reeling after losing Dak Prescott to a hand injury in game one. The Giants have gone 2-0 this season and are the slight betting favorite to earn the victory.
There are a million ways each of these games and the other ones taking place this week might go. We’ve come up with a few longshot predictions based on research and analysis.
Five Bold NFL Week 3 Predictions
The NFL is notoriously unpredictable. Even the best teams in the league can sometimes come up short. The first two weeks of the season have produced some very surprising moments. With that in mind, let’s take a look at five major surprises fans could be in store for this week.
Pittsburgh Pulls Off the Upset Over the Browns
Thursday Night Football features two solid teams from the AFC North. The Browns are coming into this game against the Steelers as the slight favorites. We’re expecting the Steelrs to make NFL news with a victory, earning a narrow win over their AFC rivals. The Steelers have the defensive skills to stop Nick Chubb and that should allow them to pull ahead late in the game.
The Bills Cover the Spread Against Miami
The Bills have established themselves as the best team in the NFL right now. They are giving up 5.5 points in the spread against the Dolphins this week and we expect them to easily cover that. The Ravens managed to earn 38 points against Miami last week. If the Ravens can rack up that many points, the Bills certainly can, too.
The Eagles Dominate the Commanders
The Philadelphia Eagles looked like their 2018 Super Bowl championship team last week against the Minnesota Vikings. On Sunday, they will be taking on the Washington Commanders, who had a poor performance against the Detroit Lions last week. We are expecting Philadelphia to earn a dominant win over Washington on Sunday, easily covering the 6.5 point spread they are giving up.
Denver Earns the Upset Over the 49ers
The San Francisco 49ers have gone 1-1 so far this season. They bounced back from a disappointing loss to the Chicago Bears in week one to earn a dominant win over the Seahawks. We are expecting the Broncos to pull off the upset here. The Broncos are coming off a great win over Houston and should ride that momentum into a victory over San Francisco.
The Cowboys Continue to Struggle Without Dak Prescott
Some of these bold NFL week 3 predictions might cause controversy. This one, however, will likely be agreed upon by most fans. Dak Prescott has been on the sidelines after a hand injury in week one and the Cowboys will continue to struggle while he is absent. We are anticipating the Giants to score a win over Dallas on Monday Night.
