The third Sunday of the NFL regular season will see a clash of legendary quarterbacks, as Tom Brady plays Aaron Rodgers a late afternoon game in Tampa.
Bills-Dolphins and Ravens-Patriots games are part of the early afternoon roster. The Bills lives up to its reputation thus far as a Super Bowl favorite. They beat the Los Angeles Rams, the defending Super Bowl, and the Tennessee Titans, the top seed last season in the Asian playoffs, by 72-17.
Now they must go on the road to play a warm-weather match in a short working week against a promising Dolphins team with a quick passing game. Tagoviloa threw 469 yards and six touchdowns in last Sunday’s 42-38 victory over the Ravens.
After that match, Tagoviloa said, “We were carrying out in every attacking way.” “And then when there were times when we didn’t carry out judgments, no one panicked. Everyone just came back to the assembly and we regrouped.”
Dolphin overcame a deficit of 28-7 in the first half and 35-14 in the fourth quarter. They scored 28 points in the last 13 minutes of the game, and coach Mike McDaniel started his post-match press conference by asking, “Is anyone else tired?”
The Ravens renew their occasionally fervent rivalry with the Patriots as they try to get back into the winning streak. Jackson puts in a great performance against the dolphins. He became the first quarterback in NFL history to have a touchdown pass and pass no less than 75 yards each in the same game.
“There are challenges every week,” Patriots coach Bill Belichick said midweek. “But the Ravens certainly have a lot of them with the quarterback, his passing game, his running game, his ability to make elusive plays, the strength of receivers and his tight ends and he.”
Belichick even chuckled when asked if Jackson had answered questions about his pocket passing abilities that he encountered while entering the NFL.
Without a doubt, Belichick said. “He’s the kind of player that is a top candidate for the best player. I think he answered more than that. Wait and see what his contract is. That will answer him.”
Brady and Rodgers will meet for the fifth time in their highly decorated career. Brady has won three of four meetings so far.
Brady played a modest 402 yards in two games this season, but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, led by their defense, started the game 2-0. The Green Bay Packers tied the Rodgers 1-1, having regrouped to beat the Chicago Bears at home last Sunday after losing in the season opener in Minnesota.
