NFL 2021 Season Week 3 Thread

Thursday Night Football

Carolina Panthers at Houston Texans, 5:20 p.m., NFL Network

The Panthers' defense has impressed so far this season and now gets to play the Houston Texans without Tyrod Taylor at quarterback.


Sunday early games

Indianapolis Colts at Tennessee Titans, 10 a.m., CBS

Derrick Henry had a monster game in the Titans' win over the Seahawks, showing no signs of slowing down.

Atlanta Falcons at New York Giants, 10 a.m., Fox

It could be a very long season for both of these teams, judging by their first two games. One of them will fall to 0-3.

Los Angeles Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, 10 a.m., CBS

There could be a lot of points put up on the scoreboard in this one and the Chiefs will probably be really angry after falling to the Ravens on Sunday night.

Cincinnati Bengals at Pittsburgh Steelers, 10 a.m., CBS

The winner of this game gets an early leg up in the AFC North, where all four teams are 1-1 after two weeks.

Chicago Bears at Cleveland Browns, 10 a.m., Fox

Both of these teams are 1-1 on the season and desperately hoping to move to 2-1 with a win in this game.

Baltimore Ravens at Detroit Lions, 10 a.m., CBS

The Ravens' offense really impressed late in the win over the Chiefs. With Lamar Jackson's explosiveness, Baltimore is never out of it.

New Orleans Saints at New England Patriots, 10 a.m., Fox

The Saints struggled in Week 2 after a very impressive Week 1 and now face a Patriots' defense that has been clicking.

Arizona Cardinals at Jacksonville Jaguars, 10 a.m., Fox

Kyler Murray and the Cardinals somehow escaped Week 2 with a win over the Vikings and get to face a struggling Jaguars team for a chance to move to 3-0.

Washington Football Team at Buffalo Bills, 10 a.m., Fox

The Bills got their act together in Week 2 and saw their defense shut out the opposition. Will they continue rolling in this one?


Sunday late games

New York Jets at Denver Broncos, 1:05 p.m., CBS

Zach Wilson is bound to experience some growing pains and he definitely did in Week 2's loss for the Jets. Can he rebound in Denver?

Miami Dolphins at Las Vegas Raiders, 1:05 p.m., CBS

The Raiders are an impressive 2-0 on the season and have a real shot to move to 3-0 hosting the Dolphins.

Seattle Seahawks at Minnesota Vikings, 1:25 p.m., Fox

Both of these teams suffered heart-breaking losses in Week 2. Which one will rebound in Week 3?

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Los Angeles Rams, 1:25 p.m., Fox

Some think this could be a preview of the NFC Championship Game. While that may be a little premature, it could be a great game.


Sunday Night Football

Green Bay Packers at San Francisco 49ers, 5:20 p.m., NBC

The 49ers are 2-0, but face a big test against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers in Week 3.

Monday Night Football

Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys, 5:15 p.m., ESPN

Both of these teams are 1-1. The winner gets a boost in the race in the NFC East standings.

A lot of seemingly one-sided games but that Tampa - Rams game should be pretty good.

Bolts/KC is usually very good and NO/NE looks good. The early slate usually looks bad, but at 3:30, you'll have some close games.

TB/LAR and SNF/MNF are good.

Tonight could be a stinker. I expect the world to be all over CAR -8 or so, which makes me wonder. But that's a reason why it's a NFLN exclusive.

^ CAR was a tempting choice for Survivor League but you just never know how Thursday games are going to go, especially for the road team.

I hate the media bagging on Rogers and now he will come out with his best game in Santa Clara.

Who is the "media" and are they bagging on him after a 4 TD game?

Yeah, I was wondering about that as well. I heard nothing but effusive praise and talk about how you better not get Aaron Rodgers angry because he'll make you pay.

Reverse psychology I see. I'll play.

Joe Burrow, you suck, I bet you can't throw 6 touchdowns against the vaunted Steelers D.

Russell Wilson, you suck, and Kirk Cousins is going to run you off the field.

Patrick Mahomes, let's see how long your losing streak will go. Justin Herbert is coming to town to show the world who the big dog in the AFC West really is! You su,...

Nope, can't do it.

Wentz talking about his injuries and how he'll just listen to the doctors. Joy Taylor on FS1's The Herd says "That's nice, he'll listen to those doctors", (but not the ones who tell him to get the vaccine).

Ah, here's the regularly scheduled fantasy wasteland of a TNF game. Neither offense can do much and the premiere fantasy player on the field is carted off.

That's the second fumble in two drives that Darnold is darned lucky his own team recovered.

Houston might actually have a shot to win this game.

Nope. Houston's dream of 1-15 is still in effect.

The guys on the NFL Today and Florio and the guys at ESPN and everybody saying how he looked like he did not care about winning the Saints game.

The whole offseason was spent going after Rodgers and now they want to see if they will win a game in CA that state and FL where the Packers struggle

The NFL will add a Monday wild card game and have only two games on Sat

That is a lot better than 3 games on Saturdays thought still wish they would go back to the old format since all of the games in the wild card round were mostly awful.

That sucks. But not a surprise.

I wish they never expanded the playoffs. It was perfect as it was.

I mean that was week 1, which might as well be 9 months ago in terms of NFL media coverage. Same for the demise of the likes of Aaron Jones and Derrick Henry. Were they ripping Rodgers after they destroyed the Lions (honestly, they could because that first half did not look that great until the Lions defense remembered who they were and reverted back to form).
