Week 3 Early Games Open Thread

Week 3 of the 2020 NFL season continues with a full slate of early afternoon games.

In perhaps the most compelling game in the early afternoon, the Los Angeles Chargers travel to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs in what is a battle of AFC West cellar dwellers. That these two teams would be battling for last place is a development few saw coming prior to this season. Both teams came into the year with dynamic young quarterbacks looking to make a deep playoff run. Whichever team loses today will be in an early hole that could spell trouble over the long run.

In other early games the Chicago Bears play the Cleveland Browns; the Washington Football Team clashes with the Buffalo Bills; the Cincinnati Bengals take on the Pittsburgh Steelers in an AFC North rivalry game; the Indianapolis Colts face off against the Tennessee Titans in an AFC South rivalry game; the Atlanta Falcons play the New York Giants in a game of winless teams; the New Orleans Saints battle the New England Patriots in what might have been a Super Bowl preview a few years back; the Arizona Cardinals play the Jacksonville Jaguars; and the Baltimore Ravens take on the Detroit Lions.

Enjoy the games everybody. Use this thread to comment on whichever early afternoon games catch your fancy.
