Taylor Swift was on hand to watch the Kansas City Chiefs dominate the lowly Chicago Bears and move to 2-1 on the season.
After a slow start to this year’s campaign, the defending Super Bowl champions look back on song with two good victories. The favorites to win this year’s Super Bowl by many sports betting sites, the Chiefs are starting to look imperious and once again look like the team everyone else will need to beat.
Elsewhere in Week 3 there were an abundance of shocks.
Dallas loses first game of the season to winless Cardinals
The Dallas Cowboys rolled into Arizona boasting a 2-0 start and were installed as 12 point favourites to beat the 0-2 Arizona Cardinals.
With many expecting a Dallas procession, It was Arizona who looked like the team with Super Bowl aspirations as they repeatedly punched holes in the vaunted Dallas defense.
Able to run the ball at will, the Cardinals surged into a 21-16 lead and put the game on ice by forcing Dak Prescott into throwing an ugly interception to complete a victory that will live long in the memory.
Matt Gay enjoys career day as Colts stun the Ravens
Another team to lose their perfect 2-0 record this past Sunday were the Baltimore Ravens as they lost in overtime to the Indianapolis Colts.
After missing last year’s Playoffs, Lamar Jackson has looked back in the groove, but a sloppy showing on offense kept a far inferior Colts side in the game.
With the game shifting back and forth, it was the Colts who were able to make the vital plays when they mattered, with kicker Matt Gay sealing the victory with a 53 yard field goal.
Miami stay perfect, outline Super Bowl credentials
It’s been a superb start to the season for the Miami Dolphins who now sit at 3-0 after wins against the Chargers, Patriots and Broncos.
Tua Tagovailoa has positioned himself as the early season MVP favorite and only strengthened those claims as he threw four touchdowns in the Dolphins’ 70-20 rout of the Denver Broncos.
The 70 points that the Dolphins were able to rack up against a porous Broncos defense was the second highest regular points total in NFL history and set a new record for the franchise.
Devastating both in the air and on the ground, the road to this year’s AFC Title may well end up going through Miami.
Buffalo are back as they thrash the Washington Commanders
After a shock loss to the New York Jets in week 1 of the season, many were starting to question the qualities of Josh Allen, but over the last two weeks the big gun slinging quarterback has looked back to his very best.
Hosting the Washington Commanders who headed into Buffalo with a perfect 2-0 record, the Commanders never stood a chance as Allen and company repeatedly marched up and down the field.
Displaying his huge arm talent and sneaky ability with his legs, the Bills marched out to a 37-0 lead before the Commanders kicked a field goal deep in the fourth quarter to ensure they finished with some points on the board.
Make no mistake, this Bills squad is still one of the most talented in the league and they look on course for a fourth successive AFC East title.
