Miami, September 23 (UPI) – High-octane NFL games top the sports calendar this weekend, after dozens of college football battles. The Buffalo Bills-Miami Dolphins Division Test and the Aaron Rodgers-Tom Brady duel are the most anticipated matches.
President’s Cup golf, scores of MLB and soccer matches from around the world, NASCAR Cup Series playoffs and boxing title matches, should host sports fans from Friday through Sunday.
But the NFL Week 3 roster will catch the most eyes on TV, phone and tablet screens as all 32 teams take to the field. Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers start the table with AFC North Thursday night football the match.
Sunday’s schedule includes nine games with kick-off at 1 p.m. EST. Four more games will air as part of the second wave of Sunday afternoon games. Then the Denver Broncos will host the San Francisco 49ers on NBC Sunday Night Football.
The Dolphins and Bells will face off in an AFC First Division match, with the highlights being the 1pm matches. Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa pulls off the best performance of his career by six distances, 469 yards. Allen’s Bills boast the highest scoring rate in the NFL.
“We understand it’s a really good team,” Tagoviloa told reporters on Wednesday. “It’s no secret. Everyone knows it’s a really good team. They are strong defensively, and they are explosive offensively.
“For us, we’re just looking to play the way we play and play the way we’ve played the past two weeks and we’ll play there, they’ll do our best and we’ll get the best of them.”
Dolphins and Bills will be broadcast on CBS.
Allen, the NFL MVP, outperformed the Bells’ wins over the Los Angeles Rams and the Tennessee Titans 72-17 in their first two games. The Dolphins beat the New England Patriots 20-7 in Week 1 and fell to the Baltimore Ravens 42-38 in Action Week 2.
The Bills have won their last seven games against the Dolphins. The Dolphins last beat the Bills on December 2, 2018. The Bills beat the Dolphins 35-0 last year in Miami Gardens, Florida, and also had a 26-11 home win over the Dolphins. The Bills averaged 36.8 points per game amid their seven-game winning streak against the Dolphins.
“They put in a lot of points,” Bills coach Sean McDermott told reporters on Thursday. “They are doing a great job with a wise attacking plan. Dolphin coach [Mike McDaniel] He does a great job of putting them in a position to succeed. It will be a huge challenge for us.”
Billing is preferred 5.5 points.
The Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Bells as the only teams to play 2-0 with games scheduled for Sunday afternoon.
The Chiefs will battle the Indianapolis Colts at 1 p.m. on CBS. The New England Patriots will host the Ravens at the same time on Fox. The Eagles will also face Washington’s leaders at 1:00 p.m. on Fox.
The undefeated Brady Buccaneers will meet Rodgers 1-1 Green Bay Packers at 4:25 p.m. Sunday on Fox. Teams led by Brady are 3-2 head-to-head against teams led by Rodgers. The Brady’s Buccaneers beat the Rodgers’ packs twice in 2020-21, including in the NFC Championship Game on their way to the Super Bowl title.
“He’s a great competitor,” Rodgers told reporters on Wednesday when asked about Brady. “I enjoy watching him play and enjoy the years and memories of watching. We’ve played many times over the years. I have a lot of respect for his game and what he accomplished in this league.”
Brady ranks #1 in NFL history with 626 professional touchdown passes. Rodgers came in fifth with a score of 451.
The Packers lost to the Minnesota Vikings and beat the Chicago Bears to start the season. The Buccaneers defeated the New Orleans Saints and the Dallas Cowboys. Pirates are preferred by 3 points over Packers.
The Broncos will host the 49ers at 8:20 p.m. Sunday on NBC. The New York Giants will host the Dallas Cowboys Monday night for the final game of Week Three.
