An epic week of game awaits as we head into another tasty week of the NFL.

This is the only contest where you can win.
We’ve got parties on for the London games as well as all of the London locations. Get in touch if you want to book a table.
As for the picks this week, Wade and Ryan have a crazy amount of similarities in their picks, despite not having chatted about it prior.
Among some of the games they discuss in this one:
Ravens (1-1) -8 vs Lions (0-2) +50
Baltimore is fresh off a beating of the AFC title holders, with a duke and dunk scheme by Lamar Jackson that was enjoyable to watch. Despite having a slew of injuries, Baltimore was once again able to show why they are contenders in the division.
Detroit is bad. Just bad. Goff has been saddled with a broken team and even worse, trapped in a broken vision for the franchise. What they heck are they doing there on Michigan?
The Lions are continually faded in games because anyone can score on them.
Ryan thinks that Lamar and the boys will rip another hole through the roof of the Lions, with an easy victory to continue their AFC bravado.
Wade feels that the Ravens will tear off to an early lead, but fall victim to the resolve of the Lions who will look to TJ for late points to make this close.
Ryan- Ravens 34 Lions 23
Wade-Ravens 30 Lions 24
Washington (1-1) vs Bills (1-1) -7.5 +45.5
The Bills return home to northern New York, after disappointing home fans against the Steelers in their opener. Josh Allen has been fine, but not as great as people have hoped thus far.
Washington and their new QB haven’t been given much hope, and their D has shown a lot of nope in their first two games. It won’t be easy against a Bills D that stiffs the run with ease.
Ryan is all over his Bills, calling this one by 10000 points. He does think that the Bills should handle the new QB, as well as get the ball out deep to some Diggs action.
Wade sees the Bills once again struggling at home, but this time getting the win. Washington will use this one as a chance to get the D rocking again, and Josh Allen will struggle.
Ryan-Bills 38 Washington 20
Wade-Bills 24 Washington 18
Falcons (0-2) vs Giants (0-2) -3 +47.5
The Falcons can buy a win. Matt Ryan and the boys have been beaten by two top teams on their way to a battle against an equally struggling New York.
The Giants have all the hype, but no winning wipe. Daniel Jones is running from the devil every week, and it’s only a matter of time before that turns into an ugly scene unless he gets protection.
Ryan is believing in Atlanta one last time. He utters this phrase every season, but at varying intervals. This year we get it at week 3. He thinks that they can overcome the sad Giants to an upset.
Wade likes DJ, and is down on the home squad. Sterling Shepherd is on the fantasy list this week, as the Falcons will be forced contain a whole host of passing options.
Ryan- Falcons 27 Giants 23
Wade- Giants 24 Falcons 20
That’s it for this week, listen to the whole podcast to get all out picks and predictions.
Join the DraftKings contest and we’ll see you on Sunday!
