The NFL’s third preseason week is underway, with teams using the week as their final tuneup for the regular season. Here on The Phinsider, I wanted to do the same thing. Every year, we run a season-long picks pool on the site among the contributors.

The final standings from last year were:
Marek Brave 182-102-1 (64.0%)
James McKinney 180-103-1 (63.6%)
Justin Hier 174-105-1 (62.3%)
CT Smith 149-90-1 (62.3%)
Kevin Nogle 176-108-1 (61.9%)
Josh Houtz 81-51-1 (61.3%)

Throughout the season, we will have a widget embedded into our picks posts that will give you the option to tab over to any picks we made against the spread or for the over/under points total. This widget is brought to us by our friends over at Tallysight.

This does not impact our overall picks pool. This is just a rehearsal so they can get into the system to input their picks, and we can make sure everything updates and we can publish our picks. With that said, here are our Preseason Week 3 picks:
