Picking underdogs every week can be tough and last week proved to be the toughest so far with none of my picks coming in, though the Texans have only themselves to blame for not coming away with any points.
After being spoiled by the likes of Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson, we were reminded that rookie quarterbacks often play like, well, rookie quarterbacks with Geno Smith and Mike Glennon showing us how tough it is for most players to make the transition from College.
At the same time, E.J. Manuel took down the Super Bowl champs to post a nice upset win at home and Hoyer continued to impress as he guided the Browns past the Bengals in his second start of the year. By now no one should be surprised by the Chargers but they were still made the home ‘dog before their shellacking of big D.
Okay, so no time to dwell on the past. Let’s look at the tasty matchups for this week’s three most undervalued teams and don’t forget to follow me on Twitter @MJPennywark so you never miss a pick.
