Last week, everyone on the staff for DSN thought the Detroit Lions would win their home opener against a perceived-weak Tennessee Titans club, but both teams left a lot of dirty laundry on the field in that game. Unfortunately, the Lions recorded 17 of the 29 penalties for a total of 138 yards, ultimately resulting in an ugly 16-15 loss late at home to even their record at 1-1.
It also resulted in a loss for everyone making picks… everyone Lions writer Logan Lamorandier, who correctly selected the Titans to win against the spread (let alone win outright). Here is how everyone did from Week 2 in the NFL.
As you can see, editor Don Drysdale is way out in front after two weeks, while everyone else is struggling to float around the .500 mark. As for defending champion Shae Brophy, and yours truly, we need to catch fire and get back in it ASAP.
Here are out picks against the spread for Week 3 in the NFL.
