TransGriot 2016 NFL Picks-Week 3

Week 2 of the 2016 NFL season has come and gone, and my fave NFL footballers are still unbeaten and sitting atop the AFC South Division standings.

But tonight the Texans are about to be tested by the team that many people consider them to be modeled after in the New England Patriots.   They are also catching them with Tom Brady sitting out a four game league imposed suspension for Deflategate and his backup in Jimmy Garoppolo being injured.

Can the Texans knock them off in Foxborough and get a leg up in this clash of AFC playoff contenders for the early lead for home field advantage in the AFC playoffs?   We'll see in a few hours.

Speaking of early leads, after two weeks, my campaign to defend my TransGriot NFL prognostication title and repeat as champion is off to a successful start.   Won the first week, and tied with Mr. Watts in Week 2.    

Translation, I have a two game lead, and want to build on that or at least maintain it.   Have 16 more games to pick this week to keep the positive momentum going.

Y'all know the drill.   Team I'm picking will be in BOLD print.   Home team is in CAPS   A link to Mike's picks will be here.
