Week 3 Wraps up in NFL With Doubleheader action on Monday Night

Monday Night wrapped up Week 3 of the National Football League season. Just like in Week 2, it ended with a doubleheader of action. The first game saw a dominating performance from the Philadelphia Eagles as they smacked the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 25-11. The Eagles are now 3-0.

It was an offensive struggle in the second game, but Joe Burrow and his Cincinnati Bengals won their first game of the season. Cincinnati beat the Rams 19-16. Both teams are now 1-2.

Let’s take a look at some of the most interesting results as we put a wrap on Week 3.

The week started with another San Francisco 49ers win. The 49ers just steadily beat up the New York Giants and walked away with a 30-12 win. The 49ers won their third straight game and are a game ahead of the Seahawks in the division. The loss dropped the Giants to 1-2 on the season.

New York was without Saquan Barkley, who is also questionable for the Week 4 game.

Interesting in Minneapolis

One of the most exciting games in Week 3 was the Los Angeles Chargers beating the Minnesota Vikings 28-24. This game went back and forth and even saw the Vikings with a chance to win late.

Minnesota could not punch it into the end zone and fell to 0-3 with the loss. The win for the Chargers was their first of the season. The bad news for Los Angeles was the loss of Mike Williams, who appears to be done for 2023.

Blowout City

Two games were absolute blowouts during the first session. We will start with the Buffalo Bills. The Bills turned Washington over four times and held the Commanders to just a lone field goal. Buffalo walked away with a 37-3 win. The win for the Bills was their second straight after losing their opening game against the New York Jets. Washington’s loss was their first of the season.

The other blowout was massive. The Miami Dolphins scored 70 points in a 50-point win over the Denver Broncos. The 70 points in the game was the most for a team in the National Football League since 1966.

The Dolphins saw Raheem Mostert and Devon Achane combine for eight rushing touchdowns in the game. Miami is 3-0, and Denver is 0-3. The Dolphins and Bills will play in Week 4.

Upsets in the AFC South

Two upsets in the AFC South. The first game when the Houston Texans scored 37 points and blew the doors off the Jacksonville Jaguars. Trevor Lawrence and the Jacksonville offense could not get anything going in the game. The win for the Houston Texans was their first of the season and the first in the career of quarterback C.J. Stroud. For the Jaguars, they also fell to 1-2.

The other upset in the division saw the Indianapolis Colts upset the Baltimore Ravens. Despite two rushing touchdowns from Lamar Jackson, the Ravens could not get anything going in the game. Justin Tucker had a chance to win the game for the Ravens late in the game but missed.

The loss was the first of the season for Baltimore, while the Colts moved to first place with a 2-1 record.

Late Games See Major Upset

The Kansas City Chiefs and Seattle Seahawks were winners of the Bears and Panthers, but the biggest game during the late afternoon slate was the Arizona Cardinals beating the Dallas Cowboys. This was 0-2 Arizona against 2-0 Dallas. This was the Cardinals, whom many projected not to win a game all season, beating the Dallas Cowboys.

Joshua Dobbs did a great job managing the game with 189 yards and a touchdown, while James Conner ran for 98 yards in the win.

Sunday Night Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers went to Las Vegas and picked up a massive 23-18 win over the Raiders. The controversy was from head coach Josh McDaniels, who elected to kick a late field goal with just over 2:00 to go.

By the time the Raiders got the ball back, they got just one play and could not get into the end zone. The loss for the Raiders dropped them to 1-2, and they were in a three-way tie with the Chargers for second place.

Week 4 Upcoming

Week 4 will get started on Thursday. The Thursday Night Football game features a pair of NFC North foes. The Detroit Lions are going on the road to take on the Green Bay Packers. This is a battle of teams that are 2-1 on the season. The winner will take the lead in the division.

Week 4 will also feature a game in London between the Falcons and Jaguars. The Sunday Night Football game is the Kansas City Chiefs at the New York Jets, and Monday will feature the Seattle Seahawks at the New York Giants.

There is a quick review of what went on in Week 3. We are excited to get Week 4 underway—best of luck to your team and also with your bets. Enjoy the games!
