Week two had a couple of upsets with Washington beating St. Louis, Jacksonville beating Miami, and Oakland beating Baltimore. Here are some games to keep an eye on in week three.

The Ravens have lost their first two games and will be facing a very good Bengals team. This will also be a divisional matchup for both teams. With the game being played in Baltimore, you would expect the Ravens to have the advantage, but with Andy Dalton playing the best football of his career to start the 2015 season, the Bengals should win this one.

San Francisco travels to Arizona for a matchup of division rivals. The Cardinals have started off hot and it is expected that they will continue to do so at home against a not so dangerous Niners team.

Buffalo at Miami will be another matchup between AFC East rivals. The Bills have started off better than expected, while the Dolphins will be trying to makeup for a surprise loss against Jacksonville.

The Sunday night matchup features the Broncos against the Lions. Denver is coming off a dramatic come-from-behind victory while the Lions will be looking to rebound after losing their first two games of the season. This game will feature some great wide receivers, with Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders for the Broncos and Calvin Johnson for the Lions.

The Monday night game will be played in Green Bay. The Chiefs head to Lambeau Field to try and disrupt Aaron Rodgers and the Packers hot start. While Kansas City is trying to prove they belong, the Packers are trying to prove they are the class of the NFC. Green Bay should win this one at home.
