Week 3 kicked off with the Cleveland Browns defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers. You can read more about that game here. We saw more one-possession games in Week 3, as the NFL remains as competitive as it has been for some time.


In an extremely rare week, the top three quarterbacks in the league – Justin Herbert, Josh Allen, and Patrick Mahomes – could not lead their teams to wins this week, as the underdog teams prevailed.

Week 3 Scores

Miami Dolphins defeat the Buffalo Bills 21 – 19

Cincinnati Bengals defeat the New York Jets 27 – 12

Tennessee Titans defeat the Las Vegas Raiders 24 – 22

Carolina Panthers defeat the New Orleans Saints 22 – 14

Baltimore Ravens defeat the New England Patriots 37 – 26

Minnesota Vikings defeat the Detroit Lions 28 – 24

Philadelphia Eagles defeat the Washington Commanders 24 – 8

Indianapolis Colts defeat the Kansas City Chiefs 20 – 17

Jacksonville Jaguars defeat the Los Angeles Chargers 38 – 10

Los Angeles Rams defeat the Arizona Cardinals 20 – 12

Green Bay Packers defeat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 14 – 12

Atlanta Falcons defeat the Seattle Seahawks 27 – 23

Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady dueled for potentially the final time unless they meet again during the postseason, with Rodgers getting the better of that match. The Jacksonville Jaguars pulled off the upset and defeated the Chargers in Los Angeles. Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert (rib cartilage) played through his injury, but the team had too many important players injured, including two critical injuries during Week 3 – Joey Bosa and Rashawn Slater. The Miami Dolphins remain undefeated, and the Colts pulled off a major upset against the Chiefs.
