Ok, so we're back with Week 3 of the Deep Balls NFL Picks podcast, and we're both looking to get things back on track after a wild and crazy Week 2.
Last week, I went 2-14 (that is not a typo) straight up, which might've been the worst score in the continental United States, while Jacson who finished a cool 7-9 on his picks, beating out Vegas by a game. Jacson is now 18-14 (11th in our Pick 'em league) on the season while this week set me back to 14-18 (63rd overall).
A little background into this podcast: Jacson Bevens previously wrote a very popular NFL Picks column here at Field Gulls, during the three seasons he wrote that column here, Jacson never finished outside the top two-percent for all of ESPN's Pigskin Pick'em Leagues nationwide for picks straight up, so his track record is well established. Our goal here will be to preview the weekend's slate of matchups and hopefully help you win your office pools this season.
We also have created a Field Gulls: Deep Balls Pigskin Pick'em group over at Field Gulls that you can join, and that will give us all a chance to compete against Jacson and each other all year.

Hit that group up and make your picks before the games start Thursday night. If you haven't joined, you're a little behind on the season-long rankings, but it's not too late see how you match up week-to-week!
