Considering that favorites were dropping all over the NFL in Week 2 Nostrathomas was thrilled to finish the week 9-7 straight-up and 8-8 against the spread. Record for the 2015 season is now 22-10 straight-up and 21-11 against the spread.
Week 3 presents nine teams that will be attempting to stay undefeated, nine that will be attempting to win their first game of 2015 and a few that will try to keep their playoff dreams from dying until the leaves fall.
Remember, as always these predictions are for entertainment purposes only. If you lose money you have only yourself to blame and should have listened to your mother about the evils of gambling. If you win Nostrathomas reminds you that generosity is food for the soul…
Who the man? Nostrathomas the man! Nostrathomas can talk big after going 13-3 both straight-up and against the spread in Week 1.
As for this week, everyone starts Week 2 back at 0-0, unless you missed on Thursday night’s game, which, in that case you start 0-1

(Are receivers allowed to call for fair catches?)…

Chargers Slip Past Ravens for a Big Win: Autopsy of an Upset
The Ravens controlled the game nearly the entire day before the Chargers scored 21 fourth quarter points to steal a victory.
The Ravens were 4-1 at home this season and 13-4 at home against AFC West competition since moving to Baltimore from Cleveland in 1996. A win against the San Diego Chargers would have kept them in contention for the AFC North title while putting them in the driver’s seat for an AFC wild card slot heading into the final four weeks of the season.
The Chargers were riding a two game win streak to climb back into playoff contention but still went into the Sunday’s contest as five-and-a-half point underdogs…
