With NFL Week 2 nearly in the books, it's time for bettors to start looking ahead to prepare for the Week 3 slate. The Week 3 set of games has everything from divisional matchups to inter-conference battles. With spreads and totals that are high and low, let's examine the notable games.

NFL Spreads for Week 3

It all kicks off with "Thursday Night Football" between two divisional rivals in the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars in Jacksonville. This one is projected to be a tight game, with Jacksonville favored by just a 1.5-point edge, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. The total sits at an even 40 points too, which is also the lowest NFL over/under of the Week 3 slate.

The "Sunday Night Football" matchup goes to the Los Angeles Rams and Cleveland Browns this week, facing off in Cleveland. The Browns are 2.5-point home underdogs, along with a game total of 51 points.

"Monday Night Football" sees another spread on the lower side, between two teams that have both disappointed early on this season. The Chicago Bears travel to our nation's capital to take on the Washington Redskins in D.C. The Bears are 3.5-point road favorites, and the total is set at 42 points with the Bears' daunting defense and lackluster offense involved in this one.

The highest spread of the week features the Dallas Cowboys over the Miami Dolphins, with the Cowboys sitting as 21-point home favorites. This could become somewhat of trend here, seeing the Dolphins in this spot. They have been far and away the league's worst team through two weeks, and there is no indication that will change in the next 14 games either.

The highest total of the week goes to the Baltimore Raves and the Kansas City Chiefs. Both offenses have lit up the scoreboard early on this season, so this isn't exactly surprising to see this matchup hold this distinction.
