NFL Picks, Week 3: Peter King Expects Rough Weekend For Bucs, Dolphins, Jaguars

Sports Illustrated's Peter King has made his picks for Week 3, and he does not expect the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Miami Dolphins or Jacksonville Jaguars to win their games.

King predicts that the Bucs will lose to the Dallas Cowboys, 30-16. Both teams are coming off Week 2 losses, and the Cowboys have the home field advantage in this one.

He expects the Jaguars' offense to continue its struggles in a 23-9 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Jacksonville is coming off a game in which it amassed just 117 total yards, but it's up against a more vulnerable defense this week.

In the closest pick of the three, King says the Dolphins will lose 20-16 to the New York Jets. He thinks that Tim Tebow "will have the bubble wrap taken off and will make three or four plays to help the Jets win." Tebow has yet to attempt a pass this season.
