Everyone loves the jump pass, and Herbert pulled one off for the first touchdown of the game against the Chiefs. Tristan Vizcaino missed the extra point, however, which is not something you want to do against Kansas City. 

Ben Roethlisberger hasn’t looked good for the Steelers early on and neither has the defense. How did Boyd escape three defenders on this touchdown?

Chiefs two early turnovers

The Chiefs have turned the ball over on all three of their possessions. Check out this “Peanut Punch” by L.A.: 

It wasn’t A.J. Brown. It wasn’t Julio Jones. It was Chester Rogers who Ryan Tannehill found in the end zone for the Titans’ first touchdown of the game. Rogers actually spent his first four years with the Colts and threw a jab their way after his touchdown, throwing up the T.Y. Hilton celebration as Tennessee went up 7-0.

Murray is the early-season MVP and he scored his 10th touchdown of the year in the first quarter against the Jaguars. When you have this mobile a quarterback, you always have to account for him in the red zone. Too easy! 

This rookie class of cornerbacks has been impressive and Samuel Jr. is standing out. He has now picked off passes in back-to-back weeks. Check out this diving interception of Patrick Mahomes:  

Allen hasn’t gotten off to the hottest start in 2021, but he’s still one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. We saw that on the Bills’ first drive of the game, as he led Buffalo 75 yards down the field on eight plays and capped the drive with this impressive touchdown pass to Emmanuel Sanders.

Rodgers’ wild offseason revisited with Packers-49ers

The NFL’s biggest storyline this offseason was Aaron Rodgers‘ unhappiness with the Packers’ organization, particularly his interest in playing elsewhere if things didn’t work out in Green Bay. The report that Rodgers’ top desired landing spot in such a scenario would be the San Francisco 49ers — who passed on him at No. 1 overall in the 2005 draft to take Alex Smith — is nothing new, but what will be new is how Rodgers reacts when he takes on those very 49ers on “Sunday Night Football.”

The 49ers, of course, had interest in acquiring Rodgers, who grew up nearby in Chico, California. Earlier this week, Packers coach Matt LaFleur said he isn’t upset with Kyle Shanahan for San Francisco’s pursuit of his starting quarterback.

“Kyle’s a great friend of mine,” said LaFleur, who is 1-2 against Shanahan and the 49ers. “I haven’t talked to him in a while. It’s just part of the business. … I hold no ill will towards him.”

So, what will happen when Rodgers and the Packers take on the 49ers at Levi’s Stadium? That’s just one of a long list of intriguing Week 3 storylines, as Justin Fields gets his first start for the Bears, Sean Payton and Bill Belichick square off in New England, the Raiders shoot for 3-0 and — oh, yeah — Tom Brady and the defending champion Bucs head to L.A. to take on the unbeaten Rams. Keep coming back here for all the latest updates.
