SATURDAY, AUGUST 23
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+3) at Buffalo Bills, 7:30 p.m.
In a game between teams that should be better than a year ago but still not very good, we’ll take the home team in a close one.
Heavy’s Pick: Bills 23, Buccaneers 17
Dallas Cowboys (+3 1/2) at Miami Dolphins, 7 p.m.
Tony Romo is set to make his second start of the preseason after sitting out Week 1. We like Dallas here to win outright as modest road underdogs.
Heavy’s Pick: Cowboys 33, Dolphins 31
Tennessee Titans (+3) at Atlanta Falcons, 7 p.m.
We’ll take Matty Ice and Co. for a narrow cover at home in the dome.
Heavy’s Pick: Falcons 27, Titans 22
New Orleans Saints (+2 1/2) at Indianapolis Colts, 8 p.m., CBS
Drew Brees, who’s sat out each of New Orleans’ first two games with an oblique injury, is expected to start and play the first half. This won’t be a blowout, but we like Brees and Co. to win outright by a touchdown.
