It’s only Week 3 of the NFL season, but this could be one of the most exciting weeks of the entire season. As we still try to find out the identity of some teams (I’m looking at you, NFC East), other teams have already established themselves as elite or bottom-dwellers.

And that sets us up for a some great football games ahead. The marquee matchup of the week lands on “Monday Night Football” as the 2-0 Baltimore Ravens host the Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs. When it comes to that game, our staff is entirely split on who will win. Six have the Chiefs defending their title, while six are taking Lamar Jackson and the Ravens to exact their revenge from last year’s Week 3 game, in which the Chiefs won a thriller, 33-28.

But that isn’t the only game that should draw in some viewers. On Sunday afternoon, the Dallas Cowboys and Seattle Seahawks face off, while the night is closed with a huge NFC showdown between the Packers and Saints. Don’t forget Texans vs. Steelers among the early games, and even Patriots vs. Raiders could be more exciting than it looks.

As for the other games, here are the ones we all picked the same:
