Bills @ Dolphins, Packers @ Buccaneers headline a stacked third NFL Sunday of 2022
1. Will Miami finally beat Buffalo?
After the Dolphins’ outstanding comeback win over the Baltimore Ravens, they now face perhaps their toughest test all season on Sunday.
Buffalo walked over the Tennessee Titans on MNF, but are depleted with injuries in the secondary.
The Bills have won their last seven straight over the Fins, but with a better team down in South Beach, on top of those missing players, could this be the end of the streak?
2. Raiders and Titans looking for their first win.
Both of these sides are looking for a lifeline, having both been expected to be a part of the AFC playoff picture late in the year.
Neither quarterback has looked great these past two games, Carr especially having a particularly poor game two weeks ago in Los Angeles.
Who would’ve thought Josh Jacobs, whom many saw as a trade candidate would have more rushing yards than Derrick Henry, who’s only averaging 3.1 ypc.
3. A huge game at home for the Colts against the Chiefs
Kansas City has looked better than many expected this season, whilst the Indianapolis Colts are very much trending in the other direction, sitting winless after two games.
The Colts have hardly had a difficult schedule either, failing to win against division rivals Houston and Jacksonville, they’ll need to massively up their game to beat one of the best teams in the league in the Chiefs.
Matt Ryan hasn’t been his usual reliable veteran self, throwing three interceptions away to the Jaguars last week, not even Jonathan Taylor has been able to save a heavily fancied team at the start of the year.
4. Brady vs Rodgers for the last time?
Sunday’s late window sees Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers face off for what could be the last time, certainly in the regular season, FOX did well to get this one!
Brady’s Buccaneers offense could go into the game without Chris Godwin, Mike Evans and Julio Jones, after Evans’ one-week suspension for the fight with Marshon Lattimore.
With similar offensive weaponry on both sides of the ball, this one will be interesting.
5. Will Jimmy and the Niners take care of a struggling Broncos team?
Who would’ve thought that Jimmy Garoppolo would be starting in Week 3! Trey Lance’s unfortunate injury may be a blessing in disguise for San Francisco, they moved the ball a lot better in the rain on Sunday.
Meanwhile, the Russell Wilson and Nathaniel Hackett era in Denver has not started well at all, with the new HC already looking out of depth in his new role.
Any clock mistakes on SNF may escalate the situation even more, they need to sort it out before facing a nationwide audience on primetime.
