The five best games were hard to choose with such a loaded schedule week in and week out. However, the National Football League might have more parity than ever before. Especially in the AFC, it seems like at least 12 out of the 16 teams in the conference could make the playoffs. The only problem is there are only seven spots up for grabs.
While in the NFC for the first time in a while it’s looking a little weak. As you only really have like four main contenders which leaves a ton of playoff spots up for grabs for some below-par teams this season. This also means there’s a ton of room for mistakes when it comes to the NFC this year. However the season ends up going, we are in store for one of the greatest seasons in the history of the game of American Football. As these are the five best games for week number three of the 2022 season.
The Five Best Games
It is always a great time when the Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers face off. This is one of the fiercest rivalries in the National Football League and they will meet for the first time this season in prime time on Thursday evening. The Browns are a brand new team but it is unknown at the moment if they will have their starting quarterback Deshaun Watson for this one. While the Steelers will be deciding between rookie Kenny Pickett and Mitch Trubisky. This will also be a showdown of two top backs in the National Football League as Nick Chubb and Najee Harris will meet on the field as well. It is easy to see why this is one of my five best games of week three of the NFL season.
The Las Vegas Raiders suffered through a lot of problems last year but still managed to make the playoffs. Now with the addition of Devonte Adams, they have gone straight into the top tier of favorites to win the AFC. While the Tennessee Titans finished as the top seed in the AFC last season, even without Derrick Henry on the field for the majority of the year. This is going to be a great measuring stick game for both of these franchises and it is clearly going to be one of the five best games of week three of the 2022 National Football League season.
There are going to be a lot of questions surrounding both of these teams heading into the 2022 National Football League season. As the Kansas City Chiefs no longer have the fastest guy in the NFL, Tyreek Hill at their disposal, and the Indianapolis Colts have a brand new quarterback. That quarterback is former Atlanta Falcon, Matt Ryan and it will be interesting to see how he does with a top eight NFL running back in Jonathan Taylor behind him. With the AFC being as crowded as it is, this game could go a long way in separating the Wild Card field for the 2022 season. It is easy to see why this is one of the five best games of week three.
This NFC West division matchup is going to be a showdown between two great quarterbacks as Kyler Murray and Matt Stafford will face off in this one. The Cardinals will be without Deandre Hopkins due to his suspension, which automatically gives Stafford and Cooper Kupp the advantage over Arizona. The NFC West is going to be a tight race and this early season divisional matchup is going to be an interesting one to watch. It’s easy to see why this is one of the five best games of week three of the 2022 NFL season. It is always great when two elite quarterbacks get together on the field and this situation is going to be no different.
This is a potential early season preview of the NFC championship game in my opinion or at the very least, a playoff matchup waiting to happen. The Packers did lose Adams, but Aaron Rodgers can never be doubted, and don’t even get me started on Tom Brady. Rodgers and Brady are two of the top ten quarterbacks in National Football League history and when they step on the field together you should expect a shootout. This edition of the matchup is going to be no different and it could be a great preview for what’s in store for the rest of the season. It’s clear to see why this is one of the five best games of week three.
