‘Torn ligament in throwing thumb’ sees Brees miss trip to Seahawks

Early season predictions were put asunder during Week 2 of the NFL with a variety of quarterbacks falling victim to injury and poor form.

Drew Brees and Cam Newton both have significant recovery time ahead of them, whilst Ben Roethlisberger will take no further part in the season. 2007 Superbowl MVP Eli Manning has also found himself out of favour at the Giants, with Daniel Jones preferred.

Week 3 kicks off in Florida, with the Jaguars playing host to the Tennessee Titans on Thursday.

The Jaguars are looking for their first win, whilst the Titans have won one and lost one. The game could go either way, with the running backs expected to feature heavily. As the Titans have fared best so far this season in that regard, they go into the game as slight favourites.

On Sunday, the New Orleans Saints travel to Seattle to face the undefeated Seahawks.

As mentioned above, the Saints quarterback Drew Brees was sidelined and faces surgery, leaving Teddy Bridgewater to take his place on the field. Expect the Seahawks to be too strong for the Saints and continue their 100% start to the season.

The LA Rams are also undefeated this season, and they face the Browns in the late kick-off on Sunday.

The Rams are shaping up to be one of the teams to beat in the AFC North, and the Browns looked less than impressive in defeating the New York Jets in Week 2. The Rams appear favourite to improve to 3-0 on Sunday evening.

The Washington Redskins round off the weekend’s football action, playing host to the Chicago Bears. Despite being on the receiving end of two losses so far, the Redskins have battled well. Chicago’s defence doesn’t look quite as mean as it did last year, so this could be a very close contest.

In a match which could go either way, Washington come out as slight favourites.
