NFL Week 3: Reasons to watch each game

Scott Galvin-USA TODAY Sports

Bengals: It’s tough to argue a season rides on a Week 3 outcome but the playoff-hopeful, Super-Bowl-hangover prone Bengals have already dug themselves a historically bad hole with the 0-2 stumble out of the gates. Joe Burrow doesn’t look comfortable in the pocket, the line that added four new starters looks sluggish and the play-calling, from prep to scheme right on down to execution has been subpar, to put it nicely. Plus, the defense that carried the team to the Super Bowl last year gave up 14 points to a backup passer over two drives in Dallas last week. Which is to say…this is the chance to get back on track before a quick turnaround to a Thursday night game against Miami, making it a must-watch affair. – Chris Roling, Bengals Wire

Jets: After last week’s improbable comeback victory against the Browns, the Jets’ offense actually looks watchable, even with Joe Flacco under center, who is actually boasting the third-highest passing yards total through two weeks. Garrett Wilson showed flashes of being a potential star in the league in the victory. The Jets have a chance to really start turning heads this week and have the opportunity to put the reigning AFC champions in an early 0-3 hole. Only six teams in NFL history have ever come back from an 0-3 start to make the playoffs and only once has it happened since the league expanded to 32 teams. – Billy Riccette, Jets Wire
