What To Look For – Week 3

IT’S STILL EARLY: History shows that 0-2 teams advance to the playoffs more often than people might think. Since the current playoff format was instituted in 1990, 24 teams started 0-2 and still qualified for the postseason.

Last season, the INDIANAPOLIS COLTS started the season 0-2 and went on to win the AFC South after finishing 11-5, advancing to the AFC Championship Game.

The 1993 Dallas Cowboys started 0-2 before winning Super Bowl XXVIII. The 0-2 New England Patriots of 1996 played in Super Bowl XXXI, and in 2001, the 0-2 Patriots won Super Bowl XXXVI. The 2007 New York Giants started 0-2 before winning Super Bowl XLII.

Week 3 NFL Preview

Two games down. Fourteen more to go.

Nine teams are off to strong starts at 2-0: Arizona, Atlanta, Carolina, Cincinnati, Dallas, Denver, Green Bay, New England and the New York Jets.

“I’m happy to be on a team that really has an opportunity to do something special,” says Cardinals wide receiver LARRY FITZGERALD, who had 112 receiving yards and three touchdown catches in the team’s 48-23 win at Chicago. “I’ve never been on a team that’s this deep. We’ve got guys that can really play.”

Among the 2-0 teams are the Falcons and Jets, who both missed the playoffs last season and are candidates to be turnaround teams in 2015. Since the 12-team playoff format began in 1990, at least four teams have qualified for the playoffs in every season that were not in the postseason the year before.

Thursday Night Football Preview: Washington Redskins at New York Giants

Week 3 begins on Thursday night (CBS/NFLN, 8:25 PM ET) with the WASHINGTON REDSKINS (1-1) traveling to take on the NEW YORK GIANTS (0-2) at MetLife Stadium.

Washington enters Week 3 following a 24-10 victory over St. Louis. Redskins quarterback KIRK COUSINS completed 23 of 27 passes (85.2 percent) for 203 yards with one touchdown for a 110.3 passer rating in the victory. Washington rookie running back MATT JONES (Round 3, No. 95 overall) rushed for 123 yards and two touchdowns in the game.

“Matt had a great game and we saw a lot of positives out on the field,” says Washington head coach JAY GRUDEN. “You also have to credit the tight ends and the offensive line, who were excellent. All around it was good work by everybody, but we have a short week against the Giants coming up. It is going to be key that we prepare like we have been.”
