Week 3 of the NFL season comes to a close Monday with a matchup of two undefeated teams, as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers host the Philadelphia Eagles, followed by the Los Angeles Rams (1-1) taking on the Cincinnati Bengals (0-2).
In Tampa Bay, new Bucs quarterback Baker Mayfield looks to continue his impressive start to the season after being signed in free agency to take over for the retiring Tom Brady. On the other side, Jalen Hurts and the Eagles are looking for their second straight 4-0 start to a season, as they play their first game in 11 days.

In tonight’s second matchup, the Rams head to Cincinnati for a Super Bowl LVI rematch, albeit without the MVP of that game — Cooper Kupp. Still, there will be plenty of eyes on breakout rookie Puka Nacua as Matthew Stafford hopes to continue the early success of his young wide receivers. Meanwhile, the Bengals will desperately try to avoid an 0-3 start while Joe Burrow continues to nurse a calf injury. He will start Monday despite being less than 100 percent.
Here are the top moments!
Philadelphia Eagles at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Setting the stage
The Eagles were victorious in Week 2 against the Minnesota Vikings, 34-28, while the Bucs took down the Chicago Bears, 27-17, in their Week 2 contest. In its past five head-to-head bouts, Philly has taken down Tampa Bay three times.
The Eagles got in the red zone in their first drive of the day thanks to Hurts and A.J. Brown, but the Buccaneers defense kept Philadelphia off the scoreboard with a huge stop on fourth-and-2.
Covey-ing some space
After the Eagles defense forced another Buccaneers punt, Philadelphia went right back into Tampa Bay territory thanks to a massive return from Britain Covey.
