NFL Recaps: TickPick’s Top 5 NFL Matchups From Week 3, 2020

Week 3 of the NFL season kicked off this past Thursday, and with it came some tremendous matchups and exciting finishes. More teams like the Browns and Broncos followed the early leads of teams like the Chiefs, Dolphins, and Jaguars, who all allowed a limited number of fans to attend their first home games,

Which other NFL teams will be allowed to have fans in the stands in 2020? It remains to be determined for many franchises due to local policies that determine the number of people, if any, will be allowed to attend the games. We’ve made a list of all 32 teams and what their up-to-date attendance policies are this season, which we recommend checking out if you’re interested in attending a game this season.

Keep in mind that you’ll never pay any service fees on NFL tickets when you buy through TickPick, where you’ll save 10% for the same seats you’d find on our major competitor’s site!

Miami Dolphins vs. Jacksonville Jaguars – Get-In Price: $101

Final Score: Dolphins – 31 | Jaguars – 13

The Dolphins secured their first victory of the season on Thursday Night Football over the Jaguars in Jacksonville. Ryan Fitzpatrick had an incredibly efficient game, completing 18 of 20 passes for 160 yards and two touchdowns, while adding another score on the ground on 38 yards rushing.

Jags quarterback Gardner Minshew struggled without his top receiver DJ Chark, as he threw for no touchdowns and an interception against a depleted Dolphins secondary. Running back James Robinson was Minshew’s safety valve throughout much of the day, as he caught six balls for 83 yards and rushed for two touchdowns and 46 yards on 11 carries.

Overall, this was a game that the Dolphins controlled from the start, and if they can continue to play competitive football with Fitz under center, it may be a while before NFL fans are able to see their prized rookie QB Tua Tagovailoa in action.

Up next for the Dolphins is a home matchup with the red-hot Russell Wilson and the Seahawks, which will be played in front of ~13,000 fans. The Jaguars will head to Cincinnati to take on Joe Burrow and the Bengals in front of ~6,000 of their loyal fans.

If you’re looking for tickets to catch a Dolphins or Jaguars game in person this season, be sure to find them on TickPick, where you’ll save 10% by never paying any service fees.

Dallas Cowboys vs. Seattle Seahawks

Final Score: Cowboys – 31 | Seahawks – 38

It was yet another game involving the Cowboys and Seahawks that featured an offensive explosion. Dak Prescott threw for a whopping 472 yards and 3 touchdowns, but was bogged down by two interceptions in this contest, while Russell Wilson continued his early-season assault on the record books, as he threw for 315 yards and five touchdowns, giving him a ridiculous 14 touchdown passes through the team’s first three games.

In the end, the Seahawks pulled out another close victory at home on a late Wilson touchdown pass to DK Metcalf to down the Cowboys, who have lost two of their first three games in heartbreaking fashion.

Both teams’ rushing attacks were tempered by the game’s fast pace, which gave way to incredible passing performances in this high-scoring affair. Cowboys receiver Michael Gallup caught six balls for 138 yards and a touchdown, while Cedrick Wilson came out of absolutely no where to post a 5/107/2 stat line that will surely have fans scrambling to pick him up from their waiver wires this week.

Seahawks dynamic receiving duo Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf continued to dominate, with Lockett catching nine passes for 100 yards and three touchdowns, and Metcalf reeling in four balls for 110 yards and a touchdown of his own.

The Seahawks will travel to South Beach for their Week 4 matchup with the Dolphins in front of some ~13,000 fans, while the Cowboys matchup with the Browns in a home tilt in front of over 20,000 fans at AT&T Stadium.

If you’re a Seahawks fan looking to catch your team in person down in Miami this week or a Cowboys fan wanting to get out to their game in Dallas, be sure to find your tickets on TickPick, where you’ll save 10% over our major competitor for the same seats.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Denver Broncos – Get-In Price: $280

Final Score: Buccaneers – 28 | Broncos – 10

Tom Brady got back to looking like the Tom Brady of old in this one, throwing for 297 yards and three touchdowns against a Denver squad that was decimated by injuries in recent weeks. Neither of the Broncos quarterbacks Jeff Driskel nor Brett Rypien could get anything going against a stingy Tampa Bay defense, as they combined for just 184 yards passing, a touchdown, and two interceptions.

This game never really was particularly close, with Tampa taking a 20-point lead just before halftime that was immediately followed by the Broncos answering with their only touchdown of the day on a Tim Patrick touchdown reception with just 14 seconds left in the half.

The biggest theme of this game — other than Tampa’s apparent arrival as one of the league’s dominant defensive units — was more injuries, with Bucs’ star wideout Chris Godwin leaving the game early with a hamstring injury and Broncos star defensive lineman Jurrell Casey lost for the season with a torn bicep.

Up next for the Broncos is a matchup with the lowly Jets at Metlife Stadium on national television for Thursday Night Football, while the Buccaneers travel home to take on the feisty Chargers and their rookie quarterback Justin Herbert.

If you’re a Buccaneers or Broncos fan looking to catch your team in person this season, be sure to find your no-fee NFL tickets on TickPick, where you’ll save 10% on the same seats over our major competitor.

Houston Texans vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

Final Score: Texans – 21 | Steelers – 28

The Steelers managed to pull out a close victory at home against Deshaun Watson and the Texans, who left Heinz Field still looking for their first win of the season.

Ben Roethlisberger threw for 237 yards and two touchdowns, while Watson threw for 264 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception. The oft-injured Steelers running back James Conner was the star of the show on this day, as he paced a solid Steelers ground game with 109 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries.

The Steelers clearly possess one of the game’s elite defenses, and if they have things their way moving forward, a solid rushing attack with a complementary and efficient passing attack led by Big Ben should be the recipe for success in 2020. The Texans have plenty of flaws, but still have one of the game’s elite signal callers under center, so don’t count them out to make a run in a suddenly-tough AFC South division.

The Steelers will travel to Tennessee next week to face a fellow unbeaten squad in what should be one of the most anticipated matchups of the week, while the Texans will look to notch their first win at home against the struggling Vikings in front of ~15,000 of their loyal fans.

If you have plans to make it to a Texans home game this season, find your tickets on TickPick, the only major no-fee ticket site.

Final Score: 49ers – 36 | Giants – 9

This week’s Rivalri Matchup of the Week was a complete blowout, with the injury-plagued 49ers dominating the Giants throughout the course of this game. Playing without their starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who was out with an ankle injury, Niners backup QB Nick Mullens played a perfectly fine game against the Giants’ weak secondary, throwing for 343 yards and a touchdown, with no turnovers.

The Giants offense couldn’t get anything going against a San Francisco defense who was missing key players on defense as well, as Daniel Jones threw for just 179 yards and an interception, despite playing from behind for most of the game. Jones did manage to rush for 49 yards on five carries, which was about the best offense Big Blue could muster, as the rest of the team combined for 17 rushing yards on 10 carries.

The Giants head west next week to take on the Rams in Week 4, while the 49ers head back home to take on the struggling Eagles.

If you’re looking to catch the Giants or 49ers in person during this season whenever they’re playing at a stadium with fans, be sure to find them on TickPick, where you’ll save 10% by avoiding those annoying service fees that other sites charge.
