Through two weeks, the 2021 NFL season has not disappointed. Week 1 was full of upsets and games decided in the final minutes. In Week 2, Patrick Mahomes's Chiefs and Lamar Jackson's Ravens delivered an instant classic on Sunday Night Football; the Seattle Seahawks and Tennessee Titans went to overtime; and two more games, the Cardinals vs. Vikings and Cowboys vs. Chargers, were decided by field goals in the final seconds. 

With the Green Bay Packers blowout win over the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football, against the spread underdogs notched a slight 9-7 advantage over the favorites in Week 2, which was a big shift from Week 1 when the underdogs posted a 12-4 record. Will Week 3 be the week where the betting favorites prevail? Or will it be all about the ATS underdogs again?   

The NFL Week 3 schedule features another full slate of games with several intriguing matchups including Chiefs vs. Chargers, where Justin Herbert will face off with Patrick Mahomes; the Buccaneers vs. Rams, in a matchup between arguably the top two teams in the NFC; and Cowboys vs. Eagles on Monday Night Football, where fans will get another taste of one of the nastiest rivalries in the NFL.

Here is a full rundown of the NFL Week 3 slate of games and TV schedule, as well as odds, picks, and predictions for several matchups.
