Week 3 is when the 2013-form guide starts to take shape. The TNF game sees the return to Philadelphia of long-time Eagles Head Coach Andy Reid, as he brings his Kansas City Chiefs to face off against Chip Kelly and that up-tempo offence of his (01:25 Fri – Sky Sports). Sunday night begins with the aerial prowess of the Detroit Lions taking on the Washington Redskins, who are so far stuttering on both sides of the ball (18:00 Sun – Sky Sports). Next up the Indianapolis Colts travel to the San Francisco 49ers, where both teams are looking to come back after painful losses last week (21:25 Sun – Sky Sports). In the late game the disappointing 0-2 Pittsburgh Steelers are hosted by the in-form 2-0 Chicago Bears (01:30 Mon – C4). MNF features a candidate for the 1st pick in next year’s draft, the Oakland Raiders, who are hosted by divisional heavyweights the Denver Broncos (01:40 Tues – Eurosport).

    Morning... I was in 2 minds about watching this one, but I'm awake, so why not?!

  • Will^20/09/2013 at 00:34

    Chiefs 3 and out...Eagles muff punt inside their 10. Facepalm.

  • Will^20/09/2013 at 00:36

    Eagles' D hold.

  • Will^20/09/2013 at 00:41

    Vick throws a pick-6.

    Chiefs 10-0.

  • Will^20/09/2013 at 00:56

    HUGE QB-keeper from Vick - 61 yard gain.

  • Will^20/09/2013 at 00:58

    TD Philly.

    10-6 (went for 2 and failed)

  • Will^20/09/2013 at 01:03

    Eagles seem to have fixed their D rather.

  • Will^20/09/2013 at 01:10

    Vick showing again exactly how to to run the read-option offence.

  • Will^20/09/2013 at 01:10

    Botched snap - KC take over.

  • Will^20/09/2013 at 01:17

    KC have O-Line woes... Smith is under pressure every snap.

  • Will^20/09/2013 at 01:36

    Another Vick INT.

  • Will^20/09/2013 at 01:46

    I'm going to call it at HT, sleep is now on the cards

  • Will^20/09/2013 at 01:57

    KC 16 - 6 PHI at HT

  • Will^20/09/2013 at 09:51

    ...I started Dwayne Bowe in the sidepod-FL assuming he'd follow the same pattern as other WRs v the Eagles so far this season.

    He got 4 yards. That's 0.4 points. My match-up is looking a lot harder to overcome already.

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 17:04

    I have [email protected] & [email protected]'Skins as my first 2 games.

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 17:05

    Let's hope there are a few more bodies in the thread... so I'm not just talking to myself (again).

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 17:12

    Chargers TD (already)

  • Dan Bolton22/09/2013 at 17:15

    Rivers is on fire, he is a most plat QB whist Brady should be benched. That is weird.

  • Dan Bolton22/09/2013 at 17:15

    Hello btw.

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 17:17

    Hello btw.

    Hey there.

    I'm a bit annoyed, I changed my pick against the Chargers because they've lost their stud rookie RT, and we know what Rivers is like under pressure. Plus their defence is destroyed today.

  • Dan Bolton22/09/2013 at 17:17

    True, Chargers are interesting though, will be battling for a wildcard for sure looking at early season form,

  • Dan Bolton22/09/2013 at 17:19

    Bengals with two TDs already!

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 17:19

    True, Chargers are interesting though, will be battling for a wildcard for sure looking at early season form,

    Especially with the North and East tending to themselves.

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 17:20

    Stafford throws an INT! Adam Rank has started him against me - I'm currently laughing.

  • Dan Bolton22/09/2013 at 17:21

    I bet, poor play that too.

  • Dan Bolton22/09/2013 at 17:22

    How did you get in a league with Ranky?

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 17:23

    How did you get in a league with Ranky?

    The TMF boys' online league has them 3, 3 "experts" and the 6 listeners. I just lucked into being picked for it.

    I'm currently 0-2.

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 17:24

    Just seen the Packers cough up the punt for the 2nd Bengals score - SHOCKING

  • Dan Bolton22/09/2013 at 17:25

    Wow, I quite like Adam Rank but I really want you to beat him.

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 17:25

    Wow, I quite like Adam Rank but I really want you to beat him.

    He's a divisional rival... so I don't really want him to win, any week. Despite, yes, enjoying his work.

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 17:34

    Jake Locker scrambles for a TON of yards.

  • Dan Bolton22/09/2013 at 17:51

    I can't believe that this remarkebly average Pats team could go 3-0;

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 17:52

    I can't believe that this remarkebly average Pats team could go 3-0;

    Like Man Utd of old, managing to grind out results when playing poorly before finding their form when it matters.

  • Dan Bolton22/09/2013 at 17:53

    I just want Brady to find Edelman.

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 17:55

    I just want Brady to find Edelman.

    He's the only weapon on that offence - double covered?

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 18:01

    The Law Firm has just Fumble only for my Fantasy D on the team team to return the TD - net win.

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 18:04

    There's a Brady TD throw for you Dan.

  • Dan Bolton22/09/2013 at 18:05

    Nice, love a good defensive TD when you get them.

  • Noelinho22/09/2013 at 18:06

    Hi guys

  • Noelinho22/09/2013 at 18:06

    I'm watching the Bengals game. Dalton just coughed it up.

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 18:06

    Hi guys

    Evening :) Wondering where everyone else was

  • Noelinho22/09/2013 at 18:07

    Evening :) Wondering where everyone else was

    watching the BBC's stupid highlights. I have to go out soon though, will be back for the second round of games though.

  • Noelinho22/09/2013 at 18:07

    who here is at Wembley next weekend?

  • Dan Bolton22/09/2013 at 18:09

    I am, so excited.

  • Christine22/09/2013 at 18:10

    There's a Brady TD throw for you Dan.

    Is that the Brady who's the only American footballer I know the name of?

  • Noelinho22/09/2013 at 18:10

    Is that the Brady who's the only American footballer I know the name of?

    yes

  • Dan Bolton22/09/2013 at 18:11

    Is that the Brady who's the only American footballer I know the name of?

    That would be him.

  • Noelinho22/09/2013 at 18:11

    Gamepass says the NE game is 7-7 - is that right? I heard Bucs were 3-0 up earlier?

  • Noelinho22/09/2013 at 18:11

    I'm guessing there haven't been two safeties...

  • Christine22/09/2013 at 18:12

    That would be him.

    Yay!

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 18:12

    who here is at Wembley next weekend?

    I'll be holding the fort in the /comments :)

  • Noelinho22/09/2013 at 18:13

    I'll be holding the fort in the /comments :)

    You'll not hear much from me next weekend - I'll be away from Thursday through Wednesday.

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 18:14

    You'll not hear much from me next weekend - I'll be away from Thursday through Wednesday.

    That's all cool :) Hopefully Steven Roy won't be watching racing, and that we'll get Mr C and others, as it's on Channel 4

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 18:15

    Jordan Cameron having a huge game for me 2TDs

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 18:18

    There you go, Freddie Morris TD for the Skins.

  • Dan Bolton22/09/2013 at 18:19

    Got him in a trade for Boldin, great piece of sealing on my part.

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 18:19

    In one league - I shopped Morris and Josh Gordon and got Forte and TY Hilton. Until now I've won that for sure.

  • Dan Bolton22/09/2013 at 18:21

    In one league - I shopped Morris and Josh Gordon and got Forte and TY Hilton. Until now I've won that for sure.

    Oft, you did well there.

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 18:22

    Oft, you did well there.

    Especially as I had the day before picked Gordon off waivers.

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 18:23

    Rivers INT - been coming.

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 18:24

    Rivers INT - been coming.

    It has been wiped off - oPI.

  • Noelinho22/09/2013 at 18:25

    NE TD. Haven't seen it though.

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 18:27

    NE TD. Haven't seen it though.

    My fantasy stats tell be Tompkins - not that I started him.

  • Noelinho22/09/2013 at 18:27

    My fantasy stats tell be Tompkins - not that I started him.

    Yes, it was.

  • Noelinho22/09/2013 at 18:29

    right, back later

  • Dan Bolton22/09/2013 at 18:30

    Kk byee.

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 18:31

    #mockers

    Kembrell is riding the pine in my TMF league. I could do with those 14+ points.

  • Dan Bolton22/09/2013 at 18:43

    Normally, it is my bench where players become superstars. I am convinced if i picked me and left me on the bench, i would score 3 TD's and collect 200 multipurpose yards.

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 18:44

    Ahhh, the Darren Sproles role.

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 19:00

    Brady INT in the endzone

  • Dan Bolton22/09/2013 at 19:30

    Big drop by RG3.

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 19:31

    Big drop by RG3.

    idiot

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 19:47

    Huge pass by RG3 - TD is thrown out on review.

  • Dan Bolton22/09/2013 at 19:48

    That is a really unfortunate call. Great play.

  • Dan Bolton22/09/2013 at 19:59

    Stafford not looking a bad pick now.

  • Noelinho22/09/2013 at 20:01

    Just saw the Bengals TD to lead.

  • Noelinho22/09/2013 at 20:02

    Gamepass is down, so I'm watching streams :-/

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 20:03

    Just saw the Bengals TD to lead.

    Who was it?

  • Noelinho22/09/2013 at 20:04

    Who was it?

    Defensive return on 4th & inches after two fumbles, one on each side.

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 20:06

    Chargers spend 20s trying to lateral themselves a hail mary - hilarous stuff.

  • Noelinho22/09/2013 at 20:07

    Chargers spend 20s trying to lateral themselves a hail mary - hilarous stuff.

    Quite why RIvers thought no one would notice the kick is beyond me,

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 20:15

    Redsklins recover the onside kick

  • Dan Bolton22/09/2013 at 20:15

    Lets go Falcons.

  • Noelinho22/09/2013 at 20:18

    Redskins didn't get the football - offisdes

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 20:18

    Sucks, i need rg3 to get garbage points

  • Noelinho22/09/2013 at 20:27

    Currently watching the Seattle and Jets games.

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 20:28

    |'ve got the 9ers, and I'm just choosing another

  • Noelinho22/09/2013 at 20:28

    Wait, I appear not to havce the Seattle game on, i have Miami

  • Noelinho22/09/2013 at 20:29

    Swapped out the Jets game for Seattle

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 20:30

    I'm adding the Hawks as game 2.

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 20:43

    Cheeking Hawks TD - showing the dive, playing the pass.

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 20:57

    I'm off to try to get Baby^ down... but I may (in all likelihood) be back if he won't settle. Byee all.

  • Noelinho22/09/2013 at 20:58

    OK, well I'm still loitering.

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 21:18

    The 9ers game is on Absolute Radio 90s, so I'm still in touch with things.

  • Noelinho22/09/2013 at 21:20

    Cool, Miami are 3 down at the half, Seattle 14 up and in the redzone

  • Noelinho22/09/2013 at 21:21

    Jacksonville just held up Seattle on 3rd & goal

  • Noelinho22/09/2013 at 21:21

    FG good, 17-0

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 21:25

    Geni Smith, TD throw - waiver wire shout?

  • Noelinho22/09/2013 at 21:34

    Oooh, what's the score in that one?

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 21:35

    Jets 14-6

  • Noelinho22/09/2013 at 21:51

    Seahawks turn Henne over in the redzone, then throw for 30 yards on first down.

  • Noelinho22/09/2013 at 21:54

    TD Seahawks.

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 22:12

    Yeah, we're not settling, so I'm back for real

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 22:31

    Wilson gets INT'd inside his own 10, gifting the Jags' offence a chance at points

  • Steven Roy22/09/2013 at 22:34

    Made it at last. I expected the 49ers to have a lead in this by now

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 22:36

    Made it at last. I expected the 49ers to have a lead in this by now

    No Davis so their passing looks anaemic.

  • Steven Roy22/09/2013 at 22:39

    What happened to the Giants - Carolina game?

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 22:39

    Good racing Steven?

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 22:39

    What happened to the Giants - Carolina game?

    Giants were steam-rollered

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 22:39

    0-38

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 22:40

    Eli was rather pathetic.

  • Steven Roy22/09/2013 at 22:40

    Giants were steam-rollered

    nfl.com have no scores on the ribbon at the top of the page. Makes it look like the game was off

  • Steven Roy22/09/2013 at 22:41

    I guess I picked a bad week to get Victor Cruz

  • Steven Roy22/09/2013 at 22:42

    Good racing Steven?

    Yes. Touch and go between the number 2 Audi and the Toyota until the Toyota's final stop. Buemi just couldn't stay in the car any longer so they had to make a driver change with 20 minutes to go when they only had a 25 second lead before the stop and McNish had made his last stop

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 22:42

    I guess I picked a bad week to get Victor Cruz

    That would be a yes ;)

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 22:44

    Trent Richardson seems to be doing well in his first outing as a Colt.

  • Steven Roy22/09/2013 at 22:44

    Muat be a shock for the Colts staff to have to call plays after all those years with Peyton

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 22:45

    Muat be a shock for the Colts staff to have to call plays after all those years with Peyton

    Haha. I hope they made notes from what he called.

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 22:53

    Luck runs it in for the TD - that helps me so much!!

  • Steven Roy22/09/2013 at 22:54

    Luck runs it in for the TD - that helps me so much!!

    He's my wild card

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 22:55

    He's my wild card

    I had Kaep - just remembered - that's laughable.

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 22:56

    9ers staring down the barrel of being 1-2 !! Who would've predicted that?

  • Steven Roy22/09/2013 at 22:56

    I had Kaep - just remembered - that's laughable.

    I had Boldin as my other wide receiver. At least he got 5 points

  • Steven Roy22/09/2013 at 22:57

    9ers staring down the barrel of being 1-2 !! Who would've predicted that?

    I had them as certainties for the play offs

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 22:57

    I had them as certainties for the play offs

    And in a tough NFC, they could be looking at a tough WildCard spot

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 23:00

    My WRs Jordy Nelson and DeSean Jackson scored minimally - damn.

  • Steven Roy22/09/2013 at 23:03

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 23:03

    Is it too late for me to pick Bradshaw

    Yes. But next week is a new week...

  • Will^22/09/2013 at 23:05

    9ers with 2:30 to pull back 20pts
