Star Club :: NFL Week 3 Breakdown
Week 3 of the NFL is officially underway as the Philadelphia Eagles , led by Michael Vick, crumbled on their own field, falling to the Kansas City Chiefs, 26 to 16. Costly mistakes by several Eagles’ players allowed the Chiefs to scrape by in the second half, with a particular impressive performance by running back, Jamal Charles (172 total yards, 1 TD).
Looking ahead to Sunday, marquee match ups include the St. Louis Rams vs. the Dallas Cowboys, the Detroit Lions vs. the Washington Redskins, and the Houston Texans vs. the Baltimore Ravens. However, if we’re picking one game to watch – and trust us, it’s a difficult thing to do, especially this early in the season – we’re going with the Monday night match up with the Oakland Raiders vs. the Denver Broncos. Aside from the divisional tension and historical rivalry, the Broncos enter Week 3 sporting one of the most impressive rosters in recent memory. Most expect them to easily slide past the Raiders, however, QB Terrelle Pryor has been winning over more fans with each passing week of surprisingly stellar play. We’ll ride with Peyton Manning and the Broncos, but we’re anticipating a much closer game than most analysts are.
Which games are you most looking forward to this week? Let us know and get ready for some Sunday – and Monday – night football.
