The NFL is wrapping up its Week 2 Sunday slate and Sunday Night Football and Monday Night Football remain. In the meantime, we’ve got some early odds to get you ready for Week 3. The Bengals and Jets will face off this coming week, with kickoff set for 1 p.m. ET on Sunday.

The Bengals struggled to get much going against the Cowboys until late in the fourth quarter, when their defense woke up and their offense was able to keep drives alive. Ultimately, Cincinnati lost on a field goal at the end the game. The Jets had a furious comeback with Joe Flacco at the helm, shocking the Browns 31-30 in Week 2. They’ll hope to keep that momentum going against Cincinnati.
