If the first two weeks of the season are any indication, week 3 will offer exciting football. Week 1 was full of surprises, week 2 was filled with comebacks and I can’t wait to see what incredible games we get this week.

Now that we have had a few games, it is becoming increasingly clear which teams are having it and which teams are struggling.

Featured game | New York Jets vs. Cincinnati Bengals

If you asked me at the start of the season if I thought a game between the defending AFC champion Cincinnati Bengals and the defending New York Jets in last place AFC East would be a remarkable game, I would have laughed. But after two straight defeats to the Bengals, matches that were well within reach, this third game will be telling.

Bengal’s offensive line has shown its weaknesses this season, having done the same last year. Quarterback Joe Burrow has been fired 13 times, which is more than the other AFC North quarterbacks combined. Burrow is on track to be fired 110.5 times, which would break the previous record set in 2002 when Derek Carr was fired 76 times in a season.

That wild number is not reached, but it does give perspective on how often Burrow hits the ground. This is nowhere near sustainable, and the Bengals need to improve their offensive line problems as soon as possible.

The Bengals lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys by three points each, and while everyone may not be panicking just yet, if they lose to the Jets this week, more people are sure to sound the alarm.

Now let’s take a look at the Jets, who took a wild win against the Cleveland Browns this week to improve to 1-1. One win won’t change the team’s likely trajectory, but it’s an improvement from last year’s 0-3 start and will definitely give the team confidence and momentum.

I expect the Bengals will take this one, because they have to, right? The Bengals who have lost two games have already upset their fans, and a third loss to a lower-tier team would only add to the shock.

Featured game | Arizona Cardinals vs. Los Angeles Rams

The Los Angeles Rams and Arizona Cardinals are two teams that I have a lot of questions about this year. Both teams could be good and should be good, but I wouldn’t be surprised if either of these teams got out of the playoffs soon.

The Cardinals are 1-1 after games at each end of the spectrum. Week 1 was a significant loss for the Kansas City Chiefs, and Week 2 was a wild comeback overtime win against the Las Vegas Raiders.

Quarterback Kyler Murray showed tenacity in the Week 2 win, but where he fits in among the league’s top quarterbacks is still a little slack. He can be very hot or cold, and I’m looking for more consistency from the 25 year old.

The Rams are coming off a Super Bowl win but are nearly 0-2 after a blowout loss to the Bills and nearly a 28-3 lead over, ironically, the Atlanta Falcons.

Quarterback Matthew Stafford, who has been dealing with elbow tendonitis, threw three interceptions in Week 1 and another two in Week 2.

I’m looking at both quarterbacks this week to help lead their teams and prove they’re contenders in the league.

Featured game | Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Green Bay Packers

Tom Brady. Aaron Rodgers. Both teams are coming off a win. A possible playoff or even NFC Championship preview? This is one of the games I look forward to the most.

Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers start the season 2-0 after double-digit wins against the Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints.

The Bucs will be without wide receiver Mike Evans, who is a suspension of one game for his participation in a multiplayer brawl in the victory against the Saints.

The Packers had a rough start to the season and the growing pains of losing key attacking players were evident. The team came back last week against their oldest rivals, the Chicago Bears, proving they still “own the Bears.”

Rodgers’ offense looked better in week 2, but it will be more challenging to do the same against the Bucs. This off-season, Rodgers discussed the difference in having a younger team, but said he was determined to make it a winning squad.

I’m waiting for this team to show real championship-class play, and it has a great chance to show that against another championship hopeful this week.

This will be the first showdown between Rodgers and Brady since 2020.
