NFL 2019 Schedule: Week 3 Games, Where to Watch, Live Stream, TV Channel

The first two weeks of the regular season are in the history books and a slightly more detailed picture of where some teams are it is beginning to emerge.

The New England Patriots look every bit the juggernaut everyone expected them to be, steamrolling the Miami Dolphins 43-0 a week after they put 33 on the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Dolphins, on the other hand, look even worse than feared. Miami might publicly insists it is not tanking, but results tell a different story.

If the Patriots have started the season on the front foot, the Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Rams, San Francisco 49ers, Green Bay Packers, Dallas Cowboys and Baltimore Ravens have followed suit and are all 2-0.

At the other end of the spectrum, the Denver Broncos, Cincinnati Bengals, New York Giants and Jacksonville Jaguars have all joined the Steelers and the Dolphins in a 0-2 hole.

The Jaguars kick off Week 3 when they host the 1-1 Tennessee Titans, while the Patriots play one of their AFC East rivals for the second consecutive week when they host the New York Jets on Sunday afternoon.

The Chiefs welcome the Ravens at the same time in what is arguably the pick of the crop of the afternoon games, while the 49ers take on the Steelers in San Francisco as they look for a first 3-0 start since 1998.

The Packers also have the chance to improve to 3-0 when they host the Broncos, while Miami could be in line for another thrashing when it travels to Dallas to face the Cowboys.

The Cleveland Browns play on primetime for the second consecutive week after taking on the New York Jets when they host the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday night.

A day later, the Washington Redskins host the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football, looking for their first win of the season. The Bears, meanwhile, will be hoping to move to 2-1 after winning 16-14 in Denver.

Here's everything you need to know about Week 3.
