I never thought we would live in a world where the have a winning record after three weeks of an season, but ladies and gentlemen, here we are. It's a world I don't understand, much like the don't seem to understand how to play football once they have a lead. That's right, I'm starting this week's picks by complaining about the Falcons. At this point, any smart coach playing Atlanta will let them get the lead and then just sit back and wait for them to completely implode. There is no risk with this strategy. If the Falcons were a human being, they would be someone who goes to Las Vegas, https://www.shopprorangers.com/new-york-rangers-jersey gets up $25,000 and then somehow ends up going home $400,000 in the hole. If you're ever being chased by a bear, the Falcons are the friend you want to have around, because they will definitely be eaten first. Speaking of being eaten by a bear, that would almost certainly be le s painful than being a Falcons fan. The Falcons have now blown two fourth quarter leads of 15 points or more in consecutive weeks, which is something no other team has done OVER THE COURSE OF AN ENTIRE SEASON, let alone https://www.shopprorangers.com/oscar-lindberg-jersey two consecutive weeks. Not only are the Falcons going down, but they're taking me with them. I'm 0-3 picking their games this season and obviously, the only way to rectify that is to never pick them again. Am I actually going to never pick the Falcons again? Let's get to the picks and find out. Actually, before we get to the picks, here's a quick reminder that you can check out the weekly picks from every , but you were probably already well aware of that since I mention it every week. You should click over just to see if any of my co-workers are picking the Falcons this week and then if https://www.shopprorangers.com/ron-greschner-kids-jersey they are, we can laugh at them together. One other thing that I mention every week is that you can now hear my dreamy voice on the Pick Six Podcast, which is our daily NFL podcast here at CBSSports.com. For the rest of the 2020 season, I'll be joining host Will Brinson three days per week (Monday, Tuesday and Friday). Even though I'm only on three days per week, there's a new episode every single day from Monday thru Friday and you should try to listen as often as po sible (You can listen to Tuesday's episode below and make sure to ). On Tuesday's episode, we spent way more time than we probably should have trying to figure out who the second best team in the NFL is behind the (Spoiler alert: It's not the Falcons). Alright, if I haven't convinced you to listen to the podcast by now, https://www.shopprorangers.com/kevin-shattenkirk-women-jersey it's probably because you either hate me or podcasts or both, so let's get to the Week 4 picks. If I've learned one thing since adding a baby to the family this year, it's that sometimes life throws a diaper in your face, and when that happens, you have to do your best to make diaper lemonade out of it. At least, I think that's how the saying goes. Anyway, the NFL is basically giving us the equivalent of a dirty diaper this week with TWO GAMES that will feature winle s teams playing against each other. Sure, I would rather change a diaper than watch either of these games, but I made a vow in March that if the NFL had a season this year I would watch EVERY SINGLE https://www.shopprorangers.com/greg-mckegg-men-jersey GAME and not complain. So, not only am I not going to complain, but I'm also going to give these two games their own section. Do they deserve it? No. Will I whiff on both picks? Probably. I hate winle s teams, but here we go anyway. Denver (0-3) at N.Y. (0-3)Thursday, 8:20 p.m. ET Point spread: , -2.5 If I've noticed one thing about the Jets this season, it's that they basically show up every Sunday with no game plan and then make it up as they go along. Not surprisingly, this hasn't been working out well for them so far. Not only have they scored the fewest points in the NFL this season, but they've also given up the second-most points in the AFC. That's not a good combination. The thing about Thursday games though is that there's not really enough time to implement a detailed game plan, and amazingly, that actually might work out in the Jets' favor. Instead of coming up with a game plan that's not going to work, Adam Gase is just going to have to throw something together and based on what I've seen so far this year from the Jets, giving Gase le s time to plan might actually be in their best interest. Also, the fact that this game is being played on a Thursday means fewer practices for the Jets. For a normal team, this would be a bad thing, but for the Jets, I think it might actually help. I mean, https://www.shopprorangers.com/james-patrick-kids-jersey if you haven't been following the Jets closely this season, here'a quick update on how their practices have gone: They've apparently been a disaster. Bradley McDougald and Avery Williamson delivered a stinging indictment on Adam Gase and his staff amid the Jets' nightmarish start to the season.The veterans made it clear that Gang Greens i sues stem from lackluster practices, writes. New York Daily News (@NYDailyNews https://www.shopprorangers.com/kevin-hayes-kids-jersey ) Basically, the Jets are going to have fewer practices this week, which should theoretically make them better since this is apparently the one team in the NFL that gets worse every time they practice. The crazy thing here is that I think I have somehow talked myself into picking the Jets. The game is in New York/Jersey, it's in prime time and I feel like Gase will be coaching for his job, which I'm not even convinced he wants to keep, but I'm picking the Jets anyway. The pick: Jets 19-16 over Broncos Minnesota (0-3) at Houston (0-3)1 p.m. ET (Fox) Point spread: , -4 I don't know if new contract includes hazard pay, but if it doesn't, he might want to https://www.shopprorangers.com/steven-kampfer-women-jersey go back to the negotiation table. Sure, $150 million is nice, but it's not going to help you very much when you have to spend it all on painkillers during retirement because you got sacked 41 times per game during your NFL career. A big reason the Texans are 0-3 is because -- and stop me if you've heard this before -- their offensive line can't protect Watson. Through four weeks, the Texans quarterback has already been sacked a total of 13 times, which is the second-most in the NFL. As a matter of fact, the Texans' offensive line has been so bad this season that Houston fans actually sound like they're afraid for his life. Deshaun Watson is going to get killed playing behind that O https://www.shopprorangers.com/vladislav-namestnikov-jersey Line in Houston. Its unbelievable how bad they can be in front of such a stud quarterback. Hes running for his life every play Cody Flavell (@Cody_625) The good news for Watson this week is that he might actually survive this game and that's because the Texans are playing a team that isn't really built to take advantage of Houston's weakne ses. Through three weeks, the have the second-fewest sacks in the NFL (3) and they've given up the third-most pa s yards (292.3 per game). Watson is probably going to cry tears of joy when he watches the Vikings defense on film. One thing about H
