The NFL is certainly full of surprises and excitement as Week 3 proved. Kudos goes out to the Atlanta Falcons, Arizona Cardinals, and Houston Texans for starting the season off 3-0. Who would have guessed the New Orleans Saints would be winless while the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers would be 1-2. It just goes to show that anything can happen in the NFL.
This week starts off strong with a battle between the winless Cleveland Browns and the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday night. Cleveland has shown improvement this year over last, but it still has not been enough to come out ahead when all is said and done.
The Saints and Green Bay Packers would traditionally be a game of interest however; it has lost some luster due to the Saints' play this season. Monday night is sure to excite with a classic rivalry game between the Chicago Bears and Dallas Cowboys.
