NFL enters Week 3 with 9 teams undefeated; Ravens and Jaguars head to London

EXCITING GAMES AHEAD AS NFL ENTERS WEEK 3

NFL returns to London as Jaguars face Ravens on Sunday (9:30 AM ET)

Eight teams are off to strong starts at 2-0: Atlanta, Baltimore, Carolina, Denver, Detroit, Kansas City, Oakland and Pittsburgh. Two others – Miami (1-0) and Tampa Bay (1-0) – will attempt to join them this week.​

Among the undefeated teams are the Ravens, Panthers, Broncos and Buccaneers, who each missed the playoffs last season and are candidates to be turnaround teams in 2017. Since the 12-team playoff format began in 1990, at least four teams have qualified for the playoffs in every season that were not in the postseason the year before.

The chances of making the playoffs after a 2-0 start are good but far from a sure thing. Since 1990, when the current playoff format was adopted, 138 of the 220 teams (62.7 percent) to start 2-0 have qualified for the postseason.

However, with 14 games remaining, there’s plenty of time to turn things around. Since realignment in 2002, 60 percent of the playoff teams (108 of 180) started the season at either 1-1 or 0-2, including eight of 12 last year.

Week 3 gets underway on Thursday night (8:25 PM ET, NFL Network) when the San Francisco 49ers host the Los Angeles Rams in an NFC West showdown between two teams with rookie head coaches – San Francisco’s KYLE SHANAHAN and Los Angeles’ SEAN MC VAY.

Also this week, the NFL returns to London for the first of a record four games in the UK this season. On Sunday (9:30 AM ET), the Jacksonville Jaguars will host the Baltimore Ravens at Wembley Stadium in a contest that will be streamed globally on Yahoo (https://nflstream.yahoo.com) and also shown on CBS in both the Jacksonville and Baltimore markets. The Jaguars are returning to London for the fifth consecutive year while the Ravens are making their first trip to the UK for the franchise’s first international game.

The week concludes on Monday night (8:30 PM ET, ESPN) when the Dallas Cowboys visit the Arizona Cardinals. Here’s a look at some of the key contests in Week 3:

ATLANTA FALCONS (2-0) at DETROIT LIONS (2-0) (Sunday, FOX, 1:00 PM ET)

  • The Falcons improved to 2-0 with a 34-23 win over Green Bay in Week 2 in a rematch of last season’s NFC Championship Game. Atlanta running back DEVONTA FREEMAN rushed for two touchdowns and cornerback DESMOND TRUFANT had a 15-yard fumble-return touchdown along with an interception.
  • Falcons quarterback MATT RYAN, who was named the 2016 NFL Most Valuable Player and Offensive Player of the Year, currently ranks fourth in the NFL with a 112.2 passer rating (minimum 50 attempts).
  • The Lions knocked off the New York Giants 24-10 on Monday night to improve to 2-0. Rookie JAMAL AGNEW returned a punt 88 yards for his first career touchdown to extend Detroit’s lead in the fourth quarter.
  • Detroit quarterback MATTHEW STAFFORD ranks third in the NFL with a 114.6 passer rating (minimum 50 attempts) this season. He leads the league with a 158.3 fourth-quarter passer rating which is the highest attainable mark.

  • The Texans limited the Bengals to 295 yards and did not allow a touchdown in Houston’s 13-9 win at Cincinnati on Thursday night. Linebacker BENARDRICK MC KINNEY led the way on defense for the Texans with two sacks while cornerback KAREEM JACKSON added a sack and a forced fumble.

  • Brady has 52 career games with at least three touchdown passes and no interceptions, passing PEYTON MANNING (51) for the most such games in NFL history. Brady’s 447 passing yards are the most by a player age 40 and older in league annals.

SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (1-1) at TENNESSEE TITANS (1-1) (Sunday, FOX, 4:05 PM ET)

  • The Seahawks recorded their first win of the season with a 12-9 victory over San Francisco in Week 2. Seattle quarterback RUSSELL WILSONconnected with wide receiver PAUL RICHARDSON on a nine-yard touchdown pass with 7:06 remaining in the fourth quarter to put the Seahawks ahead for good.
  • Seattle’s defense limited the 49ers to 248 total yards and did not allow a touchdown. Linebacker BOBBY WAGNER had seven tackles with an interception while defensive ends MICHAEL BENNETT and FRANK CLARK each recorded a sack for the Seahawks.
  • Tennessee knocked off Jacksonville 37-16 last week to earn the team’s first win of the season. The Titans rushed for three touchdowns as running back DERRICK HENRY, tight end DELANIE WALKER and fullback JALSTON FOWLER each reached the end zone. Henry led the ground attack with 92 yards.
  • Tennessee quarterback MARCUS MARIOTA has thrown 33 touchdowns and no interceptions in the red zone during his career. That is the best TD/INT ratio in the league since he entered the NFL in 2015. ​

KANSAS CITY CHIEFS (2-0) at LOS ANGELES CHARGERS (0-2) (Sunday, CBS, 4:25 PM ET)

  • The Chiefs defeated Philadelphia 27-20 to improve to 2-0. Kansas City rookie running back KAREEM HUNT rushed for two touchdowns while defensive end CHRIS JONES racked up three sacks, two forced fumbles and an interception.
  • Hunt, who had two receiving touchdowns and a rushing TD in his NFL debut in Week 1, is the only player in league history to have at least three rushing touchdowns and two receiving TDs in a player’s first two career games. Hunt has scored five touchdowns and only DUTCH STERNAMAN(six) of the 1920 Decatur Staleys has scored more TDs in a player’s first two career games.
  • The Chargers are seeking their first win of the season after dropping a 19-17 decision to Miami last week. Both of the team’s losses this year have been by three points or fewer.
  • Los Angeles tight end ANTONIO GATES recorded his 112th career touchdown reception in last week’s contest and passed TONY GONZALEZ(111) for the most TD catches by a tight end in NFL history.

OAKLAND RAIDERS (2-0) at WASHINGTON REDSKINS (1-1) (Sunday, NBC, 8:30 PM ET)
