Week two in the NFL was full of many more good games, and that gives hope going forward to week three. What quarterbacks will take a big step forward this week to lead their team to a win? Let’s try to find that out so you can get all see to make your bets against NFL Lines.
Looking At the Best Quarterback Matchups in Week 3 of the NFL Season
Buffalo Bills -4.5 vs Miami Dolphins
A few years ago, this matchup would have been a snoozer of a game. This week three matchup between the Buffalo Bills and the Miami Dolphins could be one of the more exciting games this season. Josh Allen, the MVP favorite, takes on Tua Tagovailoa and the surging Miami Dolphins.
Tagovailoa led the Dolphins to an incredible fourth-quarter comeback against the Baltimore Ravens in week two. The Dolphins trailed 35-14 entering the fourth quarter but rallied by scoring 28 fourth-quarter points. In a big year for Tagovailoa, in terms of a contract, he threw for 469 yards and six touchdowns.
The Buffalo Bills were the favorite to win the Super Bowl coming into the season and solidified that after a big week one win against the Los Angeles Rams. In week two, the Bills continued their domination with a win over the Tennessee Titans. Josh Allen and the Bills offense are rolling to start the season.
This is going to be another great matchup between two quarterbacks, Allen and Tagovailoa. This is a game that we also expect to be high scoring and expect to see a lot of action from the quarterback position.
The Pick: Buffalo Bils -4.5
Los Angeles Rams -4 vs Arizona Cardinals
We get our first look at one of the biggest matchups in the NFC West this season. The Los Angeles Rams travel to take on the Arizona Cardinals. Both teams are 1-1 heading into this matchup, with very different routes getting to 1-1.
The Rams fought the early Super Bowl hangover after a brutal performance on opening night against the Buffalo Bills. After a rough week one performance, the Rams showed out well through three-quarters of their game against the Atlanta Falcons in week two. The Rams and Cardinals split a season ago, but the Rams won the important matchup at the end of the season, on their way to an NFC West Division title and a Super Bowl victory.
The Cardinals had serious questions to answer after being routed in week one against the Kansas City Chiefs. The offseason for the Cardinals was filled with controversy and much of that was centered around their quarterback, Kyler Murray. Murray was a big reason for the comeback in week two against their division rivals, the Las Vegas Raiders.
The quarterback matchup between Matt Stafford and Murray will be one to watch. They are two different quarterbacks in their style of play. Look for this game to be high scoring and in favor of the Rams.
Pick: Los Angeles Rams -4
Green Bay Packers vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers -3
If you want an ideal quarterback matchup, this is your game to watch. Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers travel to take on Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tom Brady. Arguably two of the greatest quarterbacks to play the game will square off in a must-see matchup.
The Green Bay Packers had a rough starting like many teams in week one. The Packers were blown out and struggled offensively against the Minnesota Vikings. Rodgers and the offense still had their issues in week two against the Chicago Bears but the run game carried the Packers to a win.
Tom Brady and the Buccaneers had their hands full in week one against the Dallas Cowboys but escaped with a win. The Tampa Bay defense has been unbelievable through two weeks and have been outscored by six points. The defense turned up the heat in the fourth quarter against the New Orleans Saints to win the rivalry game.
This is a game where you have to find the lesser of two evils. This is a game where the Buccaneers defense could play a large role in the game against a struggling Green Bay offense.
Pick: Tampa Bay Buccaneers -3
