With the first two weeks of the NFL season in the books, we look forward to the NFL Week 3 schedule that’s filled with a number of great games.

This early in the season shouldn’t give any fans across the league much worry. Due to special circumstances, all teams started the year with no on-field action aside from team scrimmages. In Week 2, we saw how that missed action on the field ahead of the regular season may be leading to some of the key injuries that came raining down throughout the league.

While we won’t see the likes of Saquon Barkley or Nick Bosa for the rest of the 2020 NFL season due to knee injuries, the NFL schedule for Week 3 still offers plenty of exciting matchups. Incidentally, the top matchup won’t take place until the Baltimore Ravens play host to the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football. The Chiefs, coming off a close victory against the Los Angeles Chargers, are sure to be fighting for a bye-week bid in this year’s playoffs against the Ravens, who also enter Week 3 with a 2-0 record and atop the AFC.

Meanwhile, in the NFC, Week 3 includes two matchups – Dallas Cowboys vs Seattle Seahawks in the Sunday afternoon slot and the Green Bay Packers taking on the New Orleans Saints on Sunday Night Football – that’ll have playoff implications later down the road.

Which NFL teams play on Sunday in Week 3?

San Francisco 49ers vs New York Giants

The San Francisco 49ers (1-1) play a second-consecutive game on the “sticky turf” of the Meadowlands. The New York Giants (0-2) try to find their rhythm on offense now without running back Saquon Barkley in the backfield.

Cincinnati Bengals vs Philadelphia Eagles

Two teams that are already looking for the reset button include the Cincinnati Bengals (0-2) and Philadelphia Eagles (0-2). Neither has an offensive line prepared to protect their quarterback on Sundays this season.

Las Vegas Raiders vs New England Patriots

The Las Vegas Raiders (2-0) will need some of that home opener magic as they travel cross-country to play the New England Patriots (2-0).

  • TV: CBS

Chicago Bears vs Atlanta Falcons

The Chicago Bears (2-0) bring an unexpected swagger with them as they take on the Atlanta Falcons (0-2) and their struggling defense. If Dan Quinn’s unit can rebound against anyone, it’s Mitch Trubisky, right?

Los Angeles Rams vs Buffalo Bills

Week 3 is the first time we get to see the Buffalo Bills (2-0) face someone outside of the bottom of the AFC East, a division many expect them to win this year. A matchup against the Los Angeles Rams (2-0) will be a solid litmus test for Buffalo moving forward.

  • Location: Ralph Wilson Stadium in Buffalo, New York
  • TV: FOX

Houston Texans vs Pittsburgh Steelers

The Houston Texans (0-2) have not looked pretty through two weeks. Who has? TJ Watt and the Pittsburgh Steelers (2-0) who’ve looked fast and strong early on.

  • Location: Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
  • TV: CBS
  • Live Stream: CBS All Access

Tennessee Titans vs Minnesota Vikings

Ugly is an understatement for the Minnesota Vikings (0-2) in Week 2. The Tennessee Titans (2-0) are an early best bet in Week 3.

  • Location: U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota
  • TV: CBS
  • Live Stream: CBS All Access

Carolina Panthers vs Los Angeles Chargers

While no fans are allowed, the Los Angeles Chargers (1-1) get their second consecutive home game in brand new SoFi Stadium. The question is whether or not rookie quarterback Justin Herbert gets his second-consecutive start against what looks to be a learning year for head coach Matt Rhule and his Carolina Panthers (0-2).

  • Start time: 4:05 PM ET Kickoff
  • Location: SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California
  • TV: CBS
  • Live Stream: CBS All Access

New York Jets vs Indianapolis Colts

The New York Jets (0-2) are bad. The Indianapolis Colts (1-1) picked off Kirk Cousins three times. The Colts should be able to handle Sam Darnold and the Jets offense in Week 3.

  • TV: CBS
  • Live Stream: CBS All Access

Dallas Cowboys vs Seattle Seahawks
