NFL picks, predictions for Week 3: Packers handle Saints; Bengals bury Eagles; Steelers top Texans

NFL game picks and predictions for Week 3 of the 2020 season are tricky now that desperation is setting in for the remaining winless teams.

The pair of winless teams entering Week 3 as favorites to win are the Eagles and Falcons against the Bengals and Bears, respectively. Both have the advantage of playing at home.

Houston Texans test the NFL’s plan to stay COVID-19 safe while getting back to business

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — Professional football survived the Spanish Flu and league officials say it will survive COVID-19.
