It’s time to look ahead to Week 3 in the NFL!!

Here is the schedule of games this weekend with Auburn players participating in them:

Tonight - 7:20 PM

Dolphins (0-2) at Jaguars (1-1)

Dolphins - Noah Igbinoghene, Chandler Cox

Jaguars - Daniel Thomas

For the second straight Thursday, it’s an intra-state battle on Thursday Night Football. This week in Jacksonville, a pair of Tigers who had big roles last year in Auburn’s secondary will face off for the first time.

Sunday - Noon

49ers (1-1) at Giants (0-2)

49ers - Dee Ford

Giants - Darius Slayton

It would appear Dee Ford will miss some more time for the 49ers who is one of several players injured for the defending NFC Champions.

As for the Giants, Darius Slayton had just 3 catches in Week 2 after 2 TDs in Week 1 and without Saquon Barkley and WR Sterling Shepard, who were both placed on IR this week, the Giants will need Slayton even more going forward.

Bengals (0-2) at Eagles (0-2)

Bengals - Josh Bynes, Carl Lawson

Eagles - Rudy Ford, Jack Driscoll

The Bengals will move forward without C.J. Uzmoah who was lost for the season due to a Torn Achilles last Thursday night. Josh Bynes already has 16 tackles for Cincinnati this season.

Raiders (2-0) at Patriots (1-1)

Raiders - Daniel Carlson

Patriots - Cam Newton, Jonathan Jones, Jarrett Stidham

This will be the one I would imagine most Auburn fans eyes will be on Sunday. Daniel Carlson has been money for Vegas so far nailing a pair of 54 yard field goals, including one to send the Saints packing last Monday night.

Cam Newton was about a yard away from completing a remarkable comeback in Seattle Sunday night. But he certainly made this presence felt throwing for 397 yards and scoring 2 more TDs on the ground. Cam is back and healthy and that’s dangerous for opposing NFL defenses.

Washington Football Team (1-1) at Browns (1-1)

Washington - Peyton Barber

Browns - Cody Parkey

Peyton Barber saw extremely limited action last week after 2 TDs in Week 1.

Cody Parkey made all 5 of his extra points against Cincinnati last week.

Bears (2-0) at Falcons (0-2)

Falcons - Marlon Davidson, Josh Harris

Good news on Marlon Davidson it would appear, who has missed the first 2 games due to a knee injury:

They need all the help on defense they can get as they’re giving up only 39 points a game over the first 2 weeks.

Sunday - 3:05/3:25

Panthers (0-2) at Chargers (1-1)

Panthers - Derrick Brown

DB had a tough outing Sunday and will look to bounce back as Carolina heads to the West Coast.

Jets (0-2) at Colts (1-1)

Colts - Braden Smith

Cowboys (1-1) at Seahawks (2-0)

Seahawks - Neiko Thorpe

Buccaneers (1-1) at Broncos (0-2)

Buccaneers - Carlton Davis, Jamel Dean

Carlton Davis had an interception last week against the Panthers and will take on a Broncos team whose offense has gotten off to a slow start.

Lions (0-2) at Cardinals (2-0)

Lions - Kerryon Johnson

Kerryon found the end-zone but has just 7 and 8 carries in his first 2 weeks of the season.

Sunday - 7:20

Packers (2-0) at Saints (1-1)

Packers - Montravious Adams
