Welcome to the NFL, a Fortune .500 company, where 18 of 32 teams were 1-1 entering Week 3. Fortunately, we’re doing a bit better, after a nifty 12-4 straight-up in Week 2 and a second straight solid 9-7 against the spread. Hit our second straight Upset of the Week with Cowboys over Chargers, and nailed a second outright upset with Panthers over Saints. Through two weeks were 4 for 6 in outright upset calls. Also had a trio of ‘dogs-with-points last week with covers by Giants, Vikings and Titans. Let’s keep it going! [Note: Thursday night pick was Panthers (-8) over @Texans, 24-10.]

Week 2: 12-4, .750 overall; 9-7, .563 vs. spread.
