NFL week three picks, predictions: Does the staff think the Raiders can defy the odds in Minnesota?

NFL: Minnesota Vikings at Oakland Raiders Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Week three of the 2019 NFL season is upon us and the picks are in. But you all just want to know if we picked the Raiders to win it. Well, most of us did not. Only Thomas picked the Raiders to pull out the upset in Minnesota — where the Vikings are 8.5-point favorites —, while the rest of us do not.

Leading the way on the staff after two weeks is the new guy, Cyril Penn. He jumped to the lead with a strong 12-4 performance last week. This week he will hope the Colts can take out the Falcons as he is the only one not picking Atlanta to win that one.

There isn’t much in the way of disagreement on the staff in this week’s picks. Every single game is either unanimous or has just one person picking a different outcome.
