Thanks to a missed call from the refs and the great leg of Justin Tucker, the Ravens survived a scare on Sunday. As time expired, Tucker made a 66 yard field goal to just nearly beat the Lions. It was an off day from the Ravens offense. Lamar Jackson was just 16/31 with 1 touchdown, 1 interception, and he was sacked 4 times. After another awful game from Marquise Brown, it is pretty clear the Ravens are still looking for a legit starting receiver. It was ugly, the Ravens got got the win, but they have work to do.
Teams may finally be starting to figure out the Chiefs. The Chargers knew exactly what to do, and they attacked the questionable Chiefs secondary all day long. The Chiefs could not come up with a solution to slow them down either. Patrick Mahomes even had an off day for himself, throwing 2 interceptions. One positive for the Chiefs offense is that they finally got Clyde Edwards-Helaire going with 100 yards rushing. There shouldn’t be anything to be worried about for Mahomes, but the Chiefs could be in trouble if they don’t figure things out defensively.
After a red hot start, Kyler Murray and the Cardinals offense take just a little step backwards against the Jaguars in Week 3. Murray did not throw a touchdown for the first time all year, but he did run for a touchdown despite being held to just 19 rushing yards. The story of the day comes from the Cardinals defense where they came up with 2 fumbles, 2 interceptions, and 2 sacks. The defense continues to surpass expectations this year. If the offense can look like how they did the first two weeks, the Cardinals are a team that no one should want to face.
The Raiders survive a scare and they beat the Dolphins thanks to a last second field goal in overtime. The Raiders were down 14-0 early on before going on a 25-0 run just to let the Dolphins come back in the 4th quarter and force overtime. It was a very good game to watch and Derek Carr continues his great season with another 386 yards and 2 touchdowns. Even veteran running back Peyton Barber had a day against the Dolphins putting up 111 yards and 1 touchdown. The Raiders appear to be in good shape.
The Titans continue to improve after their Week 1 blowout loss to the Cardinals. Ryan Tannehill had another nice game putting up 197 yards and 3 touchdowns. While Derrick Henry kept it going with 144 total yards. The defense had a good day as well, coming up with 2 sacks on Carson Wentz and holding the Colts offense to just 15 points. If Tannehill can clean up his turnovers, the Titans are arguably one of the best teams in the AFC.
