Playbook picks: Could be good week for winless teams

There are four teams that have yet to enjoy a victory so far this season. Three of those clubs will get off the schneid this weekend, according to Playbook analysts Sterling Sharpe, Joe Theismann and Brian Baldinger.

Baldinger is straying from his cohorts in predicting the 49ers and Lions to get their first wins, while Sharpe is on his own in picking the Panthers to upset the Bears.

Sorry, Bills, you are the only team all three experts agree will have a doughnut in the win column next week.

As for the lone undefeated team remaining, Theismann is the only prognosticator that sees the Chiefs maintaining that status past this Sunday.
