The NBC Thursday Night Football game is sure to be exciting with Kansas City Chiefs (2-0) head coach Andy Reid, riding an undefeated record, heading back to the City of Brotherly love to take on his former team the Philadelphia Eagles (1-1). The Birds would love to give their former coach his first loss of the season. The current betting odds show the Eagles -3 point home favorites against the Chiefs with the Total set at 50 points.
There are 9 early games on the 2013 NFL Schedule Week 3 that will be played on Sunday September 22nd at 1 PM EST.

Houston was able to fend off a tough Tennessee Titans squad for a 30-24 overtime win. Quarterback Matt Schaub put up 346 yards passing with 3 touch downs and 1 interception in the win.

There are 4 late afternoon games listed on the 2013 NFL Schedule Week 3. The biggest game in this group will be when the Atlanta Falcons (1-1) head south to take on the Miami Dolphins (2-0) at Sun Life Stadium. This is the home debut of the Fins that are riding a undefeated streak into Week 3 so Miami fans will be pumped to see their squad. Meanwhile the Falcons were able to hold off a second half surge by the Rams to win 31-24 last week to secure their first victory of the season after dropping their opener to division rival New Orleans. Miami will be tested in this match up against Atlanta and the line shows it. The current NFL odds show the Dolphins -1.5 point home favorites against the Falcons with the Total set at 43.5 points.
The NBC Sunday Night Football game will feature the Pittsburgh Steelers (1-0) playing host to the undefeated Chicago Bears (2-0) at Heinz Field at 8:30 PM EST. Pittsburgh looked pathetic in their season opening 16-9 loss to the Titans and will be playing the Bengals in the Week 2 Monday Night Football game which the odds makers have them as a 7 point road dog which means they are favored to head into this game with the Bears winless. Meanwhile the Chicago has managed to remain undefeated in their first two games of season against a tough Bengals squad 24-21 and division rival Minnesota which they beat 31-30 last week. Once this line is posted, we expect the Bears to be at least a 4 point home favorite with the Total around 44 points.
The ESPN Monday Night Football game will showcase a AFC West divisional battle between the Oakland Raiders (1-1) and the Denver Broncos (2-0) in Mile High Stadium. The Raiders secured their first victory of the season 19-9 last week against a pathetic Jaguars squad. Quarterback Chad Henne was only able to manage one touchdowns against arguably the worst team in the NFL. Meanwhile Quarterback Peyton Manning has been steamrolling in the Broncos first two victories, racking up 769 passing yards, 9 touchdowns and ZERO interceptions. The Raiders do not stand a chance in this game and the betting lines clearly point this fact out. The current point spreads posted by the odds makers show the Broncos -14 point home favorites against the Raiders with the Total set at 49.5 points.
