The Week 2 slate of games actually delivered a lot more entertainment than expected. There were several exciting comebacks and blown leads—which, thankfully, the Falcons were not a part of—and there’s quite a bit of chaos in the standings heading in to Week 3. The early season is a magical time where anything can happen, and so far, it has.
Week 3’s slate offers a few very interesting matchups, headlined by a 1 PM game between the Buffalo Bills (2-0) and Miami Dolphins (2-0). We’ll also get to see two NFC favorites battle it out, as the Green Bay Packers (1-1) travel to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-0). The primetime slate isn’t quite as good as last week, with the San Francisco 49ers (1-1) taking on the disappointing Denver Broncos (1-1) on Sunday Night Football. Monday Night Football isn’t much better, as we’re forced to watch the Dallas Cowboys (1-1) take on the New York Giants (2-0).
Before we get to the picks, let’s check in on our staff standings.
