NFL Week 3 reaction: 5 storylines from Sunday

With only the Monday game remaining on the books, we look at some NFL Week 3 reaction and list out the top storylines moving forward.

5. The Titans might run away with the AFC South

Will anybody challenge the Tennessee Titans in the AFC South? It sure doesn’t seem that way. After winning 25-16 over the Indianapolis Colts, Tennessee has a two-game lead in the division over Indy, while the Houston Texans and Jacksonville Jaguars appear to be battling for then top pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. Nice spot to be in for head coach Mike Vrabel’s club.

4. The Chiefs have some problems

What’s wrong with the Kansas City Chiefs? After falling to the Los Angeles Chargers, 30-24, the Chiefs are suddenly 1-2 and alone in the AFC West cellar, two full games behind the unbeaten Denver Broncos and Las Vegas Raiders. Kansas City has six turnovers in its last two games, along with a defense that is getting no pressure on the quarterback, having two sacks in that stretch. Smart money says the Chiefs figure it out, but it’s bee a bumpy start.

3. The Rams are a title contender

Los Angeles won the premier game of the day, handling the defending-champ Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 34-24. Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford threw for four touchdowns while the defense harassed Tom Brady throughout. At 3-0, Los Angeles is tied atop the NFC West with the Arizona Cardinals, who come to SoFi Stadium next weekend. After three weeks, the Rams might be the best-looking team in the league.

2. It’s all over for Ben Roethlisberger

Last year, the Pittsburgh Steelers started 11-0 before falling apart down the stretch. It largely happened because the offense was awful, not able to run the ball while quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw time and again. Through three games, we’re seeing the same pattern. Pittsburgh has dropped two straight at home, being dropped 24-10 by the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. Roethlisberger threw two interceptions while averaging 5.5. yards per attempt. It was ugly.

1. The Bears need to move on from Matt Nagy after 2021

How does an NFL team fail to notch 50 yards in a game? We can all ask Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy, as his squad turned the trick in a 26-6 loss to the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. In the loss, rookie quarterback Justin Fields completely a scant six passes for 68 yards, while being sacked a half-dozen times. It was a mess from soup to nuts, leaving Chicago at 1-2 before welcoming in the Detroit Lions to Soldier Field this upcoming weekend.
