There are 15 games left on the Week 3 NFL schedule, following Thursday night’s blowout between the New England Patriots and the Houston Texans. Sunday’s games should be much more competitive as a few of the league’s top teams are set to go head-to-head.
Sunday’s early afternoon slate features two of the biggest games of the young season. The Super Bowl champs are underdogs as the Denver Broncos visit the Cincinnati Bengals. The Minnesota Vikings face the Carolina Panthers in another matchup of defending division winners.
The Philadelphia Eagles were not expected to be among the top playoff contenders in the NFC, but they could prove to be a legitimate threat with a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. The contest between two undefeated teams highlights the late afternoon schedule. Also of note is the matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and New York Jets, both of whom won at least 10 games last year.
Neither primetime game features a team that’s expected to contend for the 2017 Super Bowl. The Chicago Bears are looking for their first win of the season against the Dallas Cowboys on “Sunday Night Football.” “Monday Night Football” features an NFC South matchup between the 1-1 Atlanta Falcons and the 0-2 New Orleans Saints.
There are only four divisional games in Week 3. The contest between the Cleveland Browns and Miami Dolphins is the only game in which both teams are winless.
Every Sunday afternoon game can be streamed online with a subscription to NFL Sunday Ticket.TV. NBC Sports Live Extra will stream Sunday night's game, and Monday night's contest can be seen online with WatchESPN.
