NFL 2012 Schedule Week 3: Patriots Vs. Ravens Highlights Strong Third Set Of Games

Tom Brady and the Patriots take on the Ravens in a marquee Sunday night showdown.


Sunday night's marquee matchup between the New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens highlights a Week 3 NFL schedule jam packed with intriguing games.

Beyond pitting two of the early favorites in the AFC, the meeting will prove a showdown of two 1-1 squads. Both teams were just barely edged out in Week 2, as the Patriots were upset by the Arizona Cardinals, 20-18 and the Ravens were topped by the Philadelphia Eagles, 24-23.

Some other games around the AFC East to keep an eye on:

New York Jets at Miami Dolphins, Sept. 23, 1 p.m.

The Jets and Dolphins join the Patriots at 1-1 early in the 2012 season, and New York's first visit to Miami should be an interesting one. After blasting their way past Buffalo (also 1-1), New York was upended by the Pittsburgh Steelers, and will now look to contain Reggie Bush, Ryan Tannehill and the Dolphins.

Buffalo Bills at Cleveland Browns, Sept. 23, 1 p.m.

The 1-1 Bills visit the 0-2 Browns, who are looking to not lose ground in the AFC North division too early in the season, as the Steelers, Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals are all 1-1.
