NFL Week 3 Schedule: How to Watch Every Game

by Dustin Schutte

No lead is safe in the NFL — well, at least in Week 2. We witnessed several comeback victories last Sunday, providing us with plenty of entertainment early in the season.

The Arizona Cardinals overcame a 20-0 halftime deficit and defeated the Las Vegas Raiders in thrilling fashion in overtime. Tua Tagovailoa threw a franchise-tying record six touchdown passes to lead the Miami Dolphins to a 42-38 win over the Baltimore Ravens, despite trailing 35-14 after three quarters.

Not enough? How about the veteran Joe Flacco igniting a late run and leading the New York Jets to a win after trailing the Cleveland Browns 30-17 with less than two minutes to play.

Will Week 3 provide some of the same dramatic finishes? We hope so! We also hope DirecTV has figured out its issues with NFL Sunday Ticket, which went haywire last Sunday.

We’ve got the rundown of every game — and how to watch — in Week 3 (all times CT):

Thursday, Sept. 22 — Thursday Night Football

A rivalry gets renewed during Week 3’s edition of Thursday Night Football. It’s also a battle of unproven quarterbacks, with Jacoby Brissett filling in for the suspended Deshaun Watson and Mitch Trubisky taking over the Steelers offense. Both teams suffered heartbreaking losses in Week 2 and are hoping to rebound with a division win.
