Three weeks into the NFL season and eight teams have yet to lose a game. Most of these teams (Patriots, Rams, Chiefs, Cowboys, Packers) are no big surprises but let's also give credit where credit is due to the 49ers, Bills, and Lions. (A tie is not a loss.)
So how many teams will stay unblemished after this week? Well, Buffalo hosts New England so something has to give there (barring a tie). Are the Bills ready to rise to the occasion and at least show that the Patriots just won't waltz to another AFC East title (and make a serious run at going undefeated)? Kansas City heads to Detroit, although a Chiefs loss would be quite the surprise.
Green Bay kicks the Week 4 slate off on Thursday night against Philadelphia. This was a prime matchup entering this season but the Eagles have dealt with a rash of injuries that have them limping into Lambeau Field at 1-2. And rounding out the undefeated teams, the Los Angeles Rams host Tampa Bay while Dallas will be in New Orleans for "Sunday Night Football." The Saints are without Drew Brees, but Teddy Bridgewater and company did just fine in earning a big road victory over Seattle last week.
The Seahawks will look to rebound against the winless Cardinals, while other divisional matchups have Minnesota in the Windy City for a big NFC North showdown with Chicago, the Daniel Jones-led/Saquon Barkley-less Giants at home against the lowly Redskins, and a pair of AFC North games – Ravens hosting the Browns and Bengals vs. Steelers on "Monday Night Football."
Regardless of what happens, there will be at least one undefeated team still standing after Week 4. That's because San Francisco is on bye. (Jets are too.)
