With the NFL season underway, we have a whole new series of topics to discuss, and Nerdy Football’s Community Tailgate is designed to address those topics. What’s the Community Tailgate all about? Well, it’s pretty simple. Every weekday, we’ll highlight one of the top stories going on in the NFL. Then, in the comment section below, we want you to weigh in and let us know what you think.
Of course, while the debate may get spirited, we ask that it all stays respectful. If you need a reminder of our rules, please check out our commenting policy. Basically, we ask that you refrain from inappropriate language, personal insults, and attacks. Speaking of commenting: we’ve made it much easier to leave a comment here at Nerdy Football.

Last Friday, we asked you to weigh in on potential upsets around the league for Week 2, and with teams like the Jets, Raiders, Jaguars, and Buccaneers all pulling out victories, there was certainly no shortage of underdog wins.
Nerdy Football reader Albie Rivera called the Jets over the Colts in our comments section, while Barry Dodson nailed the Raiders over the Ravens, and Josh A. picked Washington over the Rams. Nearly everyone who made picks in the comments section successfully predicted at least one upset win.
After last week’s success, why not see if we can do it again this week? Here are the clubs that are currently Week 3 underdogs by at least a field goal, according to Bovada.lv:
- Jaguars at Patriots
- Bengals at Ravens
- Titans vs. Colts
- Buccaneers at Texans
- Raiders at Browns
- 49ers at Cardinals
- Bears at Seahawks
- Lions vs. Broncos
- Chiefs at Packers
The Saints/Panthers line will certainly depend on Drew Brees‘ health, but even if their starting quarterback is able to play, the Saints will likely be underdogs by three points or more in Carolina.
In all likelihood, at least a couple of these teams will pull off upsets this weekend, and it’s possible a handful will come through, perhaps even a massive underdog like Jacksonville or Chicago. Which underdogs do you like to pick up Week 2 wins? Weigh in below with your thoughts.
