Week 3 of the NFL season is here with some great matchups that can’t be passed on. The Dolphins are hosting the Jets, the red hot Texans are in Denver to take on Peyton Manning and the Patriots are in the Ravens territory. Here are my 2012 NFL Picks for Week 3. We recommend you check out the latest NFL Point Spreads heading into the third week of the 2012 NFL season.
The Patriots (1-1) have a win on the road and not at home, while the Ravens (1-1) are the exact opposite. The Pats have won two straight over the Ravens, with both scores identical at 23-20. But, both those games were in New England and the Ravens won big in Week 1 over Cincinnati 44-13.
Aside from the importance of the game from a standings perspective, the physicality of the matchups takes everything to a higher level. The Patriots know the Ravens can hit with the best of them, and they will be ready to hit back. The Pats’ most physical defensive players are healthy this week, so the intensity should elevate even further.
