For the second week in a row, there are two games on “Monday Night Football”.

Game 1 featured a battle of two undefeated teams. One of those teams, the Philadelphia Eagles, was always expected to be in this position. Second, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were predicted to be one of the worst teams in the NFL.

This has not happened for the last two weeks. Baker Mayfield and Mike Evans have done enough to lead the Buccaneers to two consecutive wins to start the season. Monday is the team’s biggest test. If he can be up there with the Eagles, maybe people will start taking the Bucs seriously.

The second “Monday Night Football” game included two major surprises. After a miserable 2021, the Los Angeles Rams look to be on the rise again. Matthew Stafford’s arm looks completely healthy, and rookie wideout Puka Nakua looks like the steal of the 2023 NFL Draft.

Meanwhile, the Bengals are looking like a mess and will be playing with Joe Burrow stuttering amid an 0-2 start. The team’s offense has yet to hit its stride, and Cincinnati suddenly finds itself winless. Can Bengal finally turn things around on Monday?

Follow along as Yahoo Sports brings you the latest news, stats and injuries during the “Monday Night Football” doubleheader in Week 3.
