The Jaguars come into the first game of the week looking to put the Dolphins away with ease. Gardner Minshew was 30-for-45 with 339 passing yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions in a three-point loss to the Titans last week. The Dolphins will go with Ryan Fitzpatrick as the starter even as the team moved to 0-2 last week,

The Falcons are desperately in need of righting their ship after last week’s debacle against the Cowboys. The Bears are undefeated going into the game, though their sloppiness against the Giants probably won’t hold up against a hungry Atlanta squad.

A matchup of two undefeated teams, the Bills welcome the Rams to Buffalo. Josh Allen had a great game against the Dolphins in a win last week. The Rams will try to stay undefeated as well.

The Vikings didn’t expect to start 0-2 this season and will have to hope their defense doesn’t take too much of a hit on their defense after losing Anthony Barr. The Titans escaped their first two wins by a field goal. Look for both teams to play a bit harder.

The Cam Newton-led Patriots looked great against the Seahawks in a loss last week and now will have to play a red-hot Raiders team. Las Vegas’ Derek Carr has been great in his first two games. He has four touchdown passes, 523 passing yards, and zero interceptions.

The Giants and 49ers look a little worse for wear heading into the third week. New York lost Saquon Barkley and Sterling Shepard to injuries while the 49ers have a bunch of starters out for the season. If New York wants to get its first win of the season, this might be the best chance.

We might get a winner in this one. Bengals rookie Joe Burrow looked good in his first two games but has yet to get the elusive ‘W.’ Carson Wentz was virtually booed in last week’s loss. The Eagles definitely need a win to quiet some of the noise that’s around the team.

The Chargers were very close to knocking off the Chiefs last week. Justin Herbert got the nod and looked good but may not get the nod in Week 3. That will be an interesting storyline coming in. The Panthers are still looking for their first win of the season.

The Broncos will be without Drew Lock and Courtland Sutton going into the game against the Buccaneers. The team has been hit hard by injuries. Meanwhile, Tom Brady and the Buccaneers picked up their first win of the season last week and may have a cakewalk against the injury-plagued Broncos.

The game of the week will be between the Ravens and Chiefs. It will be a Lamborghini going up against the Ferrari. Both teams are undefeated.
