What's your top upset pick for Week 3?

Mike Clay, NFL writer: Cardinals (+2.5) over Panthers. Kyler Murray has led the Cardinals to a tie against Detroit (which just beat the Chargers) and to a six-point road defeat against a Ravens franchise that is now 21-5 all time against teams from the Pacific and Mountain time zones. Murray has produced surprisingly little with his legs, doing a majority of his damage with his arm (the rookie leads the NFL with 94 pass attempts). Expect the Cardinals to get their first win of 2019 now that they're back home against an 0-2 Carolina team that just lost to the Buccaneers.

Dan Graziano, national NFL writer: Cardinals (+2.5) over Panthers. Other than Christian McCaffrey, D.J. Moore and Brian Burns, I don't like anything I've seen from the Panthers the first two weeks. And the Cardinals have shown a little something, coming back to tie the Lions in Week 1 and not getting run out of the building by Lamar Jackson and the Ravens in Week 1. I say the Kingsbury/Kyler combo gets its first NFL win Sunday.

Mina Kimes, NFL writer: Jaguars (+1.5) over Titans. Jacksonville lost on Sunday, but its defense did a stellar job hassling Deshaun Watson and limiting Houston's aerial attack. Gardner Minshew looked sharp down the stretch. It's a Thursday night game in Jacksonville, so give me the home team in a defensive slugfest.
