Texans at Patriots (Thursday 8:25pm)
No Brady. No Garoppolo (at least to start). Bill Belichick will earn his genius moniker if Jacoby Brissett leads the Patriots to 3-0 and a win over the 2-0 Texans. #NextManUp
Winner: Patriots

Cardinals at Bills (Sunday 1pm)
In the NFL, a desperate team is a dangerous team. And the Bills are a VERY desperate team with 10 days to prep for the Cards coming East. 
Winner: Bills

Browns at Dolphins (Sunday 1pm)
Cleveland's down to Cody Kessler at QB and now #1 WR Casey Coleman has a broken hand. Miami will take the gift. 
Winner: Dolphins

Vikings at Panthers (Sunday 1pm)
Lots of unrest in Charlotte due to the riots.  So, there's talk whether the game will be played or not. Vikings dealt another blow with Adrian Peterson down with a knee injury.  Tough to lose starting QB and RB and win on the road against the NFC Champs. 
Winner: Panthers

Broncos at Bengals (Sunday 1pm)
Hiccup time for the Denver D, now minus DeMarcus Ware. 
Winner: Bengals

Lions at Packers (Sunday 1pm)
Here we go again with the panic in Packer-land! Cheeseheads should feel better after the home opener against Detroit, who's down RB Abdul Abdullah. 
Winner: Packers

Ravens at Jaguars (Sunday 1pm)
Gus Bradley on the hot seat early with a home loss and a stinker on the road at San Diego last week. Watch out for desperate teams. 
Winner: Jaguars

Redskins at Giants (Sunday 1pm)
Chaos in Washington.  G-Men actually playing defense.  My, how things have changed in the NFC East. 
Winner: Giants

Raiders at Titans (Sunday 1pm)
Time for Raiders to flex their defensive muscles here for the 1st time in 2016. 
Winner: Raiders

49ers at Seahawks (Sunday 4:05pm)
Time for the Seahawks to resemble the Seahawks. 
Winner: Seahawks

Rams at Bucs (Sunday 4:05pm)
The Rams haven't scored an offensive TD yet in 2016.  Jameis Winston is coming off a 5-turnover stinkburger in Arizona. 
Winner: Bucs

Jets at Chiefs (Sunday 4:25pm)
Nice test here on both sides to see if NY's productive offense can be effective in a hostile environment against a quality D on the road. 
Winner: Chiefs

Steelers at Eagles (Sunday 4:25pm)
Antonio Brown was MIA last week against Cincy.  Good news - Steelers still won. Could be break out time in Philly. 
Winner: Steelers

Bears at Cowboys (Sunday 8:30pm)
Battle of the backups in Big D.  Not exactly what the higher ups in the league office were expecting for SNF. 
Winner: Cowboys

Falcons at Saints (Monday 8:30pm)
A tasty matchup to end week 3 where points could be everywhere for two teams that defense is not exactly a kind word lately. 
Winner: Saints
