Long story short, we’re on week 3 of our NFL picks:

49ers 31, Broncos 21: The Nick Bossa Game. This “Sunday Night Football” showcase became Bosa’s signature play of his career and key to his NFL Defensive Player of the Year bid. On his side is a suffocating defense — and a frustrated Broncos fanbase that counts down the play clock to mock Denver’s game management. Line: 49ers -1.5

Browns 24, Steelers 21: How the week started: A Browns fan was arrested for throwing a water bottle at the team’s owner. How the week ends: A Steelers quarterback (Mitchell Trubisky) loses for throwing the football to the Browns’ defense. Line: Steelers +4.5

Chiefs 33, Colts 26: Too early to secure the Chiefs a spot in their fifth straight AFC Championship Game? Line: Chiefs -5.5

Patriots 19, Ravens 18: New England is allowing an NFL-low 18.5 points per game. Line: Patriots +2.5

Bears 28, Texans 24: Three-step logic: 1.) Lovie Smith coached the Bears for nine years. 2.) The Bears beat the Niners in the last game at Soldier Field. 3. Texas lost to the Bears at Soldier Field in Smith. Line: Bears -2.5

Bills 35, Dolphins 28: The Bills’ Stefon Diggs is on pace for 34 touchdown catches, well ahead of the NFL’s all-time marks held by Randy Moss (23 in 2007) and Jerry Rice (22 in 1987). Line: Bill-6

Bengals 28, Jets 25: After a three-point loss to start 0-2, the defending AFC-champion Bengals returned the favor to the Jets. Line: Jets +5

Rams 28, Cardinals 24: Did you see Kyler Murray run for 20 seconds en route to a two-point conversion in the Cardinals’ comeback in Vegas? Aaron Donald would stop him at the 10-second mark in that game. Line: Rams -3.5

Raiders 23, Titans 20: How many of you predicted this as an AFC Championship matchup instead of an 0-2 battle? (Invaders fans only, kid?) Line: Raiders -2

Eagles 31, Washington 20: The Commanders can’t bounce back from last week’s loss in Detroit — just like the 2021 Green Bay Packers, whose rebound effort was a playoff loss to the 49ers. Line: Eagles -6.5

Saints 25, Panthers 21: That starts a three-game homestand for Carolina, and if win No. 1 falls short, coach Matt Rowell may not make it to the 49ers’ visit on Oct. 9. Line: Saints -3

Vikings 31, Lions 14: Kirk Cousins ​​quickly overcame his latest setback on Monday night, when he is 2-10 all-time. Line: Vikings -6

Chargers 27, Jaguars 16: Jaguars have historically been feared on the West Coast. (Explanation: jaguars are generally historically terrifying.) Line: Chargers -7

Seahawks 31, Falcons 14: This drops the Falcons to 0-3, matching their early season history (1-4 in 2018; 1=7 in 2019; 0-5 I 2020; 1-3 in 2021). Line: Seahawks -1.5

Packers 24, Bucks 17: Aaron Rodgers rules the regular season (four NFL MVP awards to Tom Brady’s three). It’s the regular season, so go with Rodgers. The postseason, of course, is Brady’s lair. Line: Packers +1

Giants 28, Cowboys 20: New York slugger Aaron Judge is rubbing off on the undefeated Giants. Line: Giants -1

Last week: 9-7 straight up, 9-7 against the spread

Season: 16-15-1 straight up, 18-14 against the spread
