The NFL’s Week 3 is here with some teams on a hot streak and some on a cold streak. The Niners, Falcons, Chargers, Eagles, Cardinals and the Texans have yet to lose a game. The Jaguars, Browns, Chiefs, Saints, Titans and the Raiders are all winless. Let’s preview one of the more interesting matchups happening this weekend with the Dolphins hosting the Jets. The Dolphins are coming off a home win in Week 2, while the Jets lost on the road last week. Here are my NFL Week 3 Predictions. We recommend you check out the latest NFL Point Spreads heading into the third week of the 2012 NFL season.
The Jets (1-1) and Dolphins (1-1) have split their last ten meetings, with Miami winning the last two of three. These two are bitter AFC East rivals and their games are always hard fought and entertaining. The Dolphins have the second best running game (171ypg) thanks to Reggie Bush and his 241 yards rushing and two touchdowns. They are bad against the pass, but the Jets don’t have a pass game. The Jets offense is mediocre and so is their defense.
PREDICTION: Dolphins +3
