NFL Week 3 Must-Watch Games

Thursday, Sep 24

Miami Dolphins at Jacksonville Jaguars

This could very well be the worst game of the season. Miami is season two into a rebuild with Tua in the wings while Jacksonville is Losing for Lawrence or Tanking for Trevor. This is going to be an ugly game.

Sunday, Sep. 27

Chicago Bears at Atlanta Falcons

While Dolphins versus Jags will be one of the lowest-scoring games in Week 3, Bears against Falcons should be one of the highest-scoring matchups. Atlanta has one way to go on offense, let Matt Ryan throw for over 400 yards and try to score enough points to beat the other team. Chicago can counter with Mitch Trubisky and an underrated Bears offense. If this one doesn’t break 60, we’ll be surprised. 

Washington Football Team at Cleveland Browns

Washington’s path to victories is clear. Lean on a talented defensive line and hope quarterback Dwayne Haskins doesn’t make mistakes on offense. Washington had 8 sacks against Philadelphia quarterback Carson Wentz. Baker played okay against the Bengals in Week 2. He won’t against Chase Young and a Washington front seven that recorded 8 sacks against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 1. So, don’t expect a barn burner. 

San Francisco 49ers at New York Giants

The 49ers battle the Jets in Week 2. They get a chance to go up 2-0 when they take on the Giants in Week 3. San Francisco could go crazy and score 40 points. More than likely, only the 49ers break 20, which makes this another low-scoring affair. 

Cincinnati Bengals at Philadelphia Eagles

After his second pro-game, Joe Burrow is already the best QB in this game. He must work on his pass completion percentage, but he’s thrown for 509 yards, 3 touchdowns and just 1 interception in two games. We know that when he has time, Carson Wentz is one of the most effective quarterbacks in the NFL. Both signal-callers figure to have success in NFL Week 3.

New York Jets at Indianapolis Colts

The Jets offense is pathetic. But, this game could still approach a 50 total. Colts’ quarterback Philip Rivers takes too many chances, which should help the Jets’ offense win the field position battle. If Sam Darnold can put at least 20 on the board, Rivers and Indianapolis will provide the rest of the 30 points. 

Carolina Panthers at L.A. Chargers

When it comes to the total, no game is as tough to handicap as Panthers versus Chargers. The Bolts lean on a tough defense. Carolina leans on a strong offense. The Chargers could contain Panthers quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and running back Christian McCaffrey. On offense, Los Angeles will try and eat up clock. Expect the Chargers to ensure the Panthers don’t score more than 21.

Detroit Lions at Arizona Cardinals

Arizona’s offense should score 30 versus a Detroit defense that yielded 149 rushing yards to the Bears in Week 1. The Lions have a great quarterback in Matthew Stafford, but Staff can’t do it all on his own. Lions versus Cardinals figures to be one of the higher scoring games in NFL Week 3.

NFL Week 2 High/Low Scoring Games

NFL Week 2 High/Low Scoring Games

Who is itching for NFL Week 2 football already? Whether you like high-scoring or defensive minding games, there’s action for you. Keep reading for NFL Week 2’s high and low scoring games.

NFL Week 2 High/Low Scoring Games

Cincinnati Bengals at Cleveland Browns

Neither of these teams will score a ton of points. First, Baker Mayfield still is not in control of the offense. Even though he is on his FOURTH head-coach in two seasons, you can’t throw an interception on your team’s first possession of the season. Joe Burrow is a rookie and the Browns have a good defense. This should be a low-scoring contest. 

New York Giants at Chicago Bears

The Giants and Bears could score some points on Sep. 20. Both teams have decent skill players. Bears’ running back David Montgomery is a workhorse while Giants’ RB Saquon Barkley is one of the best ball-carriers in the NFL. Although Chicago’s defense allowed just 18.6 points per last season, it’s hard to see the Bears defenders stopping Barkley. 

Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers

Both teams have solid enough defenses for this to be a low-scoring game. The Packers beat Detroit 23-22 and 23-20 in the two games last season. We could expect a similar sort of score in the first head-to-head in 2020, but, Detroit’s defense is much better. So, the winner may not break 20.

Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans

Jacksonville won’t stop Derrick Henry. If the Jaguars can score 10 to 17 points in Week 2, we should stare at a high-scoring game because Titans figure to score 35 to 42, which means the total could creep into the high 40s or even low 50s. 

Buffalo Bills at Miami Dolphins

The Bills opened the offense in Week 1. They allowed Allen to throw the football. He’s also a great running quarterback. Miami has no choice but to allow starter Ryan Fitzpatrick to sling it all over the field. Both teams will score enough for this to constitute a high scoring game.   

San Francisco 49ers at New York Jets

San Francisco should rout the Jets. Does that mean this is a high-scoring battle? It depends on what Sam Darnold and the Jets do on offense. NYJ will score some points. J-E-T-S won’t score enough for anyone to call this a high-scoring battle, though. 

Carolina Panthers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Buccaneers are solid against the rush. They’re not so great against the pass. But Carolina’s entire offense rests on how well Christian McCaffrey does carrying the football. Panthers’ quarterback Teddy Bridgewater won’t take charge and throw for 300 yards and 3 touchdowns unless the Buccaneers stop McCaffrey. Tom Brady may not get enough possessions for the total to break 50. This feels like a 24-21 game at best.  

Washington Football Team at Arizona Cardinals

Washington’s offense remains a work in progress. The defense isn’t great. The Cardinals will score a lot of points. But the game should end up Arizona 28 Washington 10, or something similar. That makes Washington versus the Desert Birds in Week 2 a low-scoring game.

NFL Week 2 Top Picks

NFL Week 2 Top Picks

The first week of the 2020 NFL season is officially in the books and if you are ready for NFL Week 2 action keep reading for the must bet games everyone needs to target!

NFL Week 2 Top Picks

Atlanta Falcons at Dallas Cowboys

Two of the best offenses in the NFL clash when the Falcons battle the Cowboys. Last season, Atlanta’s offense averaged 379.7 yards per, ranking fifth in the league. The Cowboys averaged about 21 points last season. Dallas’ offense will be better in 2020 than it was in 2019. The Falcons’ offense should be better as well. So, expect a close and exciting matchup.

Minnesota Vikings at Indianapolis Colts

The Colts and Vikings run similar offensive and defensive packages. Both teams will look to establish the run. Neither squad has a true advantage except, maybe, at running back where Dalvin Cook is a slightly better player than any RB on the Colts’ roster. Some may argue that Philip Rivers is the much better quarterback than Kirk Cousins. Either way, this is a Week 2 game that could come down to the final possession. 

L.A. Rams at Philadelphia Eagles

Football fans should love watching this matchup. One of the top defenses in the NFL, the L.A. Rams, goes up against one of the most creative play-calling coaches, Doug Pederson, and one of the league’s top quarterbacks in Carson Wentz. If the Eagles defense comes together in this, they might beat the Rams by a touchdown. That could be their lone touchdown unless the Rams defense lays an egg. 

Denver Broncos at Pittsburgh Steelers

The two squads are close in talent. Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger could have a field day, though. The Broncos will be without Von Miller, their best defensive player. Without Miller pressuring Ben, he should find it easy to connect with one of his talented tight-ends, Vance McDonald and Eric Ebron as well as top WR JuJu Smith-Schuster. Also, the Broncos could have trouble stopping Steelers running back James Connor.  

Kansas City Chiefs at L.A. Chargers

In Week 1, the Chiefs proved they’re still the best team in the NFL. Kansas City beat Houston 34-20. But the Chargers have a stronger defense than what Houston puts onto the field. LAC’s defense will stop the run, which means Patrick Mahomes must win this one with his arm. We know he can do that. The Chargers didn’t lose either of their games last season by more than 10 points and, again, the Bolts’ defense is better this season, though.  

Baltimore Ravens at Houston Texans

The Ravens figure to rock the Texans, right? Not so fast. Baltimore’s offense is terrific, but Houston’s defense played much better in the game versus than Chiefs than many believe it did. Eventually, Mahomes and the offense got it going to post 34 points. Deshaun Watson rallied the Texans late to cut the lead. On Sunday, David Johnson’s rushing ability could keep the ball out of the hands of Lamar Jackson. That gives the Texans a chance.    

New England Patriots at Seattle Seahawks

Patriots versus Seahawks projects as one of the closest Week 2 games. Seahawks will start the better quarterback. The Patriots have the better defense and better coach. But if it comes down to the final offensive series for each team, Russell Wilson gets the edge over Cam Newton, which makes the Seahawks the squad to consider backing. 

New Orleans Saints at Las Vegas Raiders

This will be the City of Las Vegas’ first-ever professional football team game. Don’t expect the Raiders to wait for Drew Brees to carve them up. If Jon Gruden has his way, Josh Jacobs will rush for 200 yards and Brees and the Saints will have the ball for 15 minutes in a 60-minute game. This one should be exciting even if the new stadium is at quarter capacity.
