Playbook picks: Sorry, Jets, Dolphins are too tough

It is rare all three Playbook analysts agree on what are seemingly toss-up games, but consider this week an exception.

Sterling Sharpe, Joe Theismann and Brian Billick all like the Dolphins to move to 3-0 by beating the visiting Jets, and are also in agreement that the Packers will march into Soldier Field on Monday night and hand the Bears their first loss.

Another interesting Week 3 pick they share in common: They expect the undefeated Texans to drop Dallas to 0-3.

Before Sharpe, Theismann and Billick go sing Kumbaya together, they are at odds in one key game. Theismann and Billick predict the Saints will remain unbeaten, while Sharpe is riding with the Falcons.

Without further ado, take a look at all of their Week 3 picks:
