Can you believe it's already week three of the 2016 NFL season? I'm finding it hard to believe myself. Hopefully this week the cream will start to rise to the top after a first two weeks of the weird game results. This is the NFL, after all, where parity of the name of the game.

The S&BP staff played the homer card liberally last week; picking the Raiders across the board. And boy were we wrong. How in the world did the Seahawks lose to the Rams after how atrocious the Rams looked in the opener?

Anyway, coming out on top last week was Marcus with an 11-5 mark. While Tyler gives us our firsts sub-.500 week of the season. Cleveland, Tyler? Really? Apparently so, because he picked them again this week. Good luck with that one.

This week the unanimous selections are once again the Panthers, Packers, and Seahawks along with the Cardinals, Buccaneeers, Chiefs, Steelers, and Cowboys.
