Another big weekend in round 3 of the NFL Championship with Arizona, Atlanta and Houston all keeping their unbeaten starts intact. It was triumph and tragedy for the Ravens and Torrey Smith, as he overcame the heartbreaking loss of his brother hours before their game, starring in a 1 point win over the Patriots.

Arizona gave the home fans plenty to cheer about as they consolidated their position at the top of the NFC West with a convincing 27-6 win over the Eagles, Kevin Kolp leading the way with 222 yards and 2 touch downs.

The Falcons produced one of the performances of the weekend away from home at Qualcomm Stadium, in San Diego, Matt Ryan in top form with 275 yards and 3 touch downs in a 27-3 win over the Charges. The win gives them a perfect start to the season after week 3 leaving them in pole position on top of the NFC South.

Houston rarely looked in trouble despite a last quarter rally by Denver in front of the Bronco faithful. Foster contributed 25 carries at 105 yards for the visitors. Manning was again in top form but couldn’t make the difference with 3330 yards and 2 touch downs.

In a very emotional encounter at the M&T Bank stadium in Baltimore, the Ravens clinched a 1 point win over the Patriots with a 4th quarter 10 point blitz. Torrey Smith scoring 2 touch downs barely a day after the tragic loss of his brother in an accident. Baltimore now top the AFC South with 2 wins and a loss.

Monday night football on 2BET2, sees Green Bay making the trip to Seattle both with a win and a loss. The Packers will be looking to build on their win last week over Chicago, while the Seahawks also come into the game with a win, defeating Dallas 27-7 in a very impressive display.
