NFL 2022 Week Three Results Down To Two

NFL 2022 Week Three Results Down To Two

Week Three was one to remember, especially if you are a neutral fan. Chock full of close games and a bit of a shocker in LA pretty much sums up the weekend’s games. In all, eleven of the sixteen games were settled by a single score and six of these by 3 points or less! Furthermore, there are only two unbeaten teams left, and neither are the ones you would expect.

The week’s surprise result was Jacksonville winning easily at the highly regarded Chargers who are now 1-2. That’s two impressive wins in a row for the Jags, who preseason was regarded as contenders for the no 1 overall pick in next year’s draft.

This leaves the LV Raiders as the only team looking for a win. Mind you all three defeats have been by one score. Surely their luck will change soon?

Here are the week’s highlights

Jacksonville Take A Bow

After their opening loss at Washington, it looked like it was going to be another disappointing season for the long-suffering Jags fans. However, they showed that last week’s shutout of the Colts was no fluke by following it up by routing the LA Chargers!

Jacksonville had lost their last 18 road games, however, 16 second-quarter points which included three Riley Patterson field goals meant that they never really looked threatened. Trevor Lawrence continues to improve and added 3 TDs to the board as the Jags snapped that unwanted streak in some style. They go to unbeaten Philadelphia next week and another road win would certainly make people sit up and take notice.

Battle Of The HOF Locks

One of the weekend’s most anticipated games was Green Bay travelling to Tampa. With two future Hall of Fame QBs starting we expected a bit of a shoot-out, however, it was instead a bit of a slugfest. To be fair both had excuses. Tanpa was missing a host of starters on offense and of course, Green Bay is coming to terms with the fact their WR1 was last year’s WR3! In the end, the honours went to Aaron Rodgers who did just enough to get the win. Tom Brady will be ruing that delay of game call on the potentially tying 2pt conversion though.

Down To Two

Six teams were 2-0 coming into the weekend however only two have escaped with their 100% record unscathed. Philadelphia was expected to take care of Washington and they duly did thanks to another solid performance from Jalen Hurts. He put in his best-ever performance in an Eagles shirt throwing for 340 yards and 3TDs. The win was more clear-cut than the score suggests with the Commanders’ points all coming in garbage time.

Miami ‘s win over Buffalo was much more of a struggle but for the second week running the Fins have beaten teams that harbour genuine Super Bowl ambitions. The Bills will wonder how they lost this one though having put up 497 yards of offense to Miami’s 212! The Bills also dominated possession and they were oh so close to getting off a potentially game-winning field goal in the last few seconds.  Still, it’s Miami who is 3-0.

Other Talking Points

Jamies Winston looks to have reverted back to his old self. He has thrown 5 interceptions in the last two games as against 2TDs. It’s early days but he is just about on course to match his 30 from 2019.

Joe Flacco on the other hand seems to have rolled back the clock in a better way. He has 901 yards passing in his opening three starts and this with a pretty mediocre supporting cast. Zach Wilson will likely get his starting job back in week four, but he better shape up quickly to keep Flacco on the bench.

Speaking of young QBs who have not quite lived up to the hype it was kind of sad watching Chicago’s Justin Fields continue to struggle. He had another poor game going 8-17 passing for 106 yards. He had no TDs and threw a couple of picks. His season passing total is 297 yards, 2TDs and 4 Interceptions. Apart from Trevor Lawrence, the jury is still out on the QB class of 2021 however right now we are sure the Bears regret trading up for him almost as much as he regrets saying the NFL was Kinda Slow!
