2013 Week 3 5* NFL Picks: VIKINGS -6 4* SEAHAWKS -18.5 #nflonedotcom

[Browns/VIKINGS] Too hard to resist a Browns team powered by the quarterback duo of Weeden and Campbell, 29.2 rating. Having traded Richardson this week, the Browns arrive 2-5-1 in last eight games as Road Dog. Although the Vikings are unimpressive 3-5-1 as Home Favorites under Frazier, and 11-20-1 ATS vs AFC teams over the last eight years, the Vikings find a way to beat a Browns team that has been outscored 31-3 in second half of their first two games.

[Jaguars/SEAHAWKS] There is no other team that is as dominant at home due to the twelfth man as the Seahawks. Most recently 8-1 ATS at Home, and having allowed only 5 points per game in 2013, expect no mercy for a visiting Jaguars team that has only managed 5.5 points per game on 52.5 rushing yard per game. Henne, 88.9 rating, will be forced to the air where he will be grounded.

  1. LOSER – Browns 31, VIKINGS 27 – Minneapolis, MN (Sports Network) – Many people thought the Cleveland Browns were waving the white flag when they traded running back Trent Richardson earlier this week. Instead, the Browns pulled out all the tricks in Sunday’s 31-27 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. Brian Hoyer, filling in for an injured Brandon Weeden, threw a 7-yard TD pass to Jordan Cameron with 51 seconds left to give Rob Chudzinski his first win as the head coach of the Browns. Hoyer, making his second career start, completed 30-of-54 passes for 321 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions. Weeden was ruled out earlier in the week due to a thumb injury. Cameron caught six passes for 66 yards and three scores for Cleveland (1-2), which shipped Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts in a surprise blockbuster trade. Josh Gordon, who was suspended for the first two games, had 10 catches for 146 yards and a touchdown. Christian Ponder completed 25-of-42 passes for 228 yards and an interception for the Vikings (0-3), who sit last in the NFC North. Ponder also carried the ball five times for 46 yards and two touchdowns. Adrian Peterson rushed for 88 yards and a score on 25 carries.

  2. WINNER – Jaguars 17, SEAHAWKS 45 – Seattle, WA (Sports Network) – Russell Wilson matched a career high with four touchdowns passes and the Seattle Seahawks stifled the Jacksonville Jaguars in a 45-17 rout on Sunday at CenturyLink Field. Wilson completed 14-of-21 passes for 202 yards and an interception, with Zach Miller and Sidney Rice each hauling in two of Wilson’s touchdown tosses. Backup quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, who entered for Wilson late in the third with the game well in hand, threw for a score and ran for another. Marshawn Lynch rushed for 69 yards on 17 carries for the Seahawks (3-0), who were coming off a 29-3 demolition of the reigning NFC champion San Francisco 49ers. Chad Henne, making his second straight start in place of an injured Blaine Gabbert, struggled under center against Seattle’s stout defense, connecting on just 18-of-38 passes for 235 yards and a pair of interceptions. Maurice Jones-Drew carried the ball 19 times for 43 yards and a score for the Jaguars (0-3), who are off to their third 0-3 start in franchise history and first since dropping their initial four games during the 2003 campaign. The loss spoiled the homecoming of Jacksonville head coach Gus Bradley, who had spent the last three seasons as Seattle’s defensive coordinator before being hired by the Jags back in January.
