NFL FINAL PRESEASON WEEK SELECTIONS: 3 TO GET READY

Aug 26, 2003 5:52 AM

Raiders (pk) at Cowboys: Parcells wants to win and Callahan doesn’t. Simple as that. Don’t expect Raiders to play with any more urgency than in the previous three lackluster efforts. Now that Tuna chose "Q" as QB, he can now focus on keeping that winning attitude. COWBOYS.

Falcons (+4) at Browns: Atlanta will be happy to stay healthy in this preseason closer. Falcons 0-3 ATS heading to Cleveland, where the Browns will be looking to carry some momentum into the season. Look for a big game from frustrated QB Tim Couch, the rich backup to chosen starter Kelly Holcomb. BROWNS.

Redskins (+2) at Jaguars: The Jags are 3-0 ATS but scored only six points in a snoozer with Tampa Bay. It’s Spurrier’s return to Jacksonville, so he will not want to be embarrassed in front of his Gators home boys. Look for Washington to care more about this one than the Jags. The game is a far cry from the World Largest Cocktail Party, but a winning ticket is worth just the same in the sports book. REDSKINS.

 

Last week: 2-1

Preseason: 6-3
