Preston’s Picks: Week 3 (Part 2)

Welcome back everybody. Per usual, here’s the second installment of my weekly picks series. We’re already off to a good start after a Panthers win, but there’s plenty of action left to speculate on. Like in the former article, there will be just 20 words per pick, no more or less. Let’s get right in.
