Nostrathomas Predicts: Week 3 of the NFL Season!

Nostrathomas Predicts: Week 3 of the NFL Season!

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…

This has led to this team being one of the oldest in the NFL.

The Bears currently also lack talent and depth at key positions as John Fox heads into his first season as head coach but there are also some positives though to look forward to. Here’s a look at a few from both sides of the equation…
