Week 3 of the NFL season concludes with another “Monday Night Football“ doubleheader that starts with two undefeated NFC teams: the (2-0) Philadelphia Eagles traveling to Florida to take on the (2-0) Tampa Bay Buccaneers at 6:15 p.m. Arrowhead Time on ESPN+ (and locally on KMBC/9). Then at 7:15, the (1-1) Los Angeles Rams will be in the Queen City to face the (0-2) Cincinnati Bengals on ESPN and ESPN2.

The Eagles are coming off a 34-28 road win over the Minnesota Vikings, while the Buccaneers handed the Chicago Bears a 27-17 home loss in Week 2. A week ago, the Rams picked up a 30-23 road loss against the San Francisco 49ers and the Bengals suffered a 27-24 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Maryland.

According to DraftKings Sportbook, the Eagles are favored by 5 points over the Buccaneers, while the Bengals are 2-point favorites over the Rams.
