Man did Peebles’ picks for Week 3 suck or what? Just like Week 2, Peebles went 1-2, falling victim to the Chicago Bears and Cleveland Browns who beat the 10.5 point spread against the Ravens. There was some hope during Monday Night Football that Peebles would pull it out, but unfortunately the Bears had a stellar evening and enjoyed a decisive win over the previously undefeated Packers. The Bears are now 3-0 and leading the NFC as the lone undefeated team. Meanwhile, in the AFC, the Steelers and Chiefs hold the two top spots, along with their undefeated records.
What happened to the Packers? Well, not much really. You can’t fault QB Rodgers for his efforts, which included a QB sneak touchdown. To be sure, there were a couple plays where the Packers should have converted, but it wasn’t to be. Peebles thought the Packers’ defense wasn’t bad either. Give Clay Matthews a plastic hockey mask, and you’ll have Jason Voorhies all over again. Matthews was pumped all night, applying constant pressure to the Bears’ QB Jay Cutler.
The Packers also had over 16 penalties call against them, including a few personal fouls. This definitely worked against them: they are notorious for NOT producing penalties, but this time the referee almost broke his whistle making calls against the Packers. In the end, it was these mistakes that added up for lost yardage and inconsistencies which allowed the Bears to score 20 points.

For one, Mr. Peebles is getting his act together. October is a new month, and a new opportunity to make some quality predictions. Don’t forget, he bets his own picks, and lost a bit to the books last night and Sunday. That meant it was necessary to re-load, putting a last minute charge on his credit card. Luckily, there’s some cash leftover for Week 4.
The Falcons v. 49ers game should be one of the favorites this coming Sunday. The birds from Atlanta are flying high coming off a win against the Saints over the weekend. The niners’ are desperate for a win, and if they can’t pull an upset off against the Falcons, they’ll fall to 0-4, joining the bottom teams of the NFL Power Rankings.
Until later this week, when Peebles releases his picks for Week 4 ( which will be much better than previous weeks, he promises 🙂 )
Best of Luck NFL Betting Week 4!
