'Tis the season for quarterback trades in the NFL. Going into this week, there were already two big ones with the Los Angeles Rams sending two first-round picks, a third-round pick, and Jared Goff to the Detroit Lions for Matthew Stafford and the Indianapolis Colts trading second- and third-round picks to the Philadelphia Eagles for Carson Wentz. And on Monday, the New York Jets traded Sam Darnold to the Carolina Panthers for a sixth-round draft pick in 2021 and a second- and fourth-rounder in 2022.

While he did not win Super Bowl LV, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has the potential to be one of the greatest dual-threat quarterbacks in NFL history. With 14,152 career yards in the air and 808 on the ground, he is well on his way.

Week 3 of the 2020 NFL season features a matchup between two teams heading in different directions. The Chicago Bears (2-0) are looking to remain undefeated as they head south this Sunday to take on an Atlanta Falcons (0-2) team that's very hungry for a win.
