MIAMI, Sept. 23 (UPI) — High-octane NFL games top the weekend sports schedule, after dozens of college football battles. A Buffalo Bills-Miami Dolphins split test and an Aaron Rodgers-Tom Brady duel are the most anticipated matchups.

The President’s Cup golf tournament, dozens of MLB and soccer games from around the world, the NASCAR playoffs and boxing title fights are also expected to entertain sports fans Friday through Sunday.

But the Week 3 NFL slate will get the most attention on TV, phone and tablet screens as all 32 teams take to the field. The Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers started the schedule with an AFC North Thursday night football match.

Sunday’s schedule features nine games with kickoffs at 1 p.m. EDT. Four more games will be broadcast as part of the second wave of Sunday afternoon games. The Denver Broncos will next host the San Francisco 49ers on NBC Sunday night football.

The Dolphins and Bills will face off in an AFC East Division game, highlighting the 1 p.m. Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is coming off a career-best performance with six touchdowns and 469 yards. Allen’s Bills boast the most scoring offense in the NFL.

“We understand that they are a very good team,” Tagovailoa told reporters on Wednesday. “It’s no secret. Everyone knows they’re a very good team. They’re tough defensively, they’re explosive offensively.

“For us, we’re just looking to play the way we play and play the way we’ve been playing for the last two weeks and we’ll go there, they’ll do our best and we’ll get theirs.”

The Dolphins and Bills game will air on CBS.

Allen, the NFL MVP favorite, and the Bills beat the Los Angeles Rams and Tennessee Titans 72-17 in their first two games. The Dolphins beat the New England Patriots 20-7 in Week 1 and eluded the Baltimore Ravens 42-38 in a Week 2 thriller.

The Bills have won their last seven games against the Dolphins. The Dolphins’ last win over the Bills was on Dec. 2, 2018. The Bills beat the Dolphins 35-0 last year in Miami Gardens, Florida. They also recorded a 26-11 home win over the Dolphins. The Bills averaged 36.8 points per game during their seven-game winning streak against the Dolphins.

“They’ve put up a lot of points,” Bills coach Sean McDermott told reporters Thursday. “They’re doing a great job offensively. Dolphins Coach [Mike McDaniel] does a great job of putting them in a position to succeed. It will be a big challenge for us.”

The Bills are favored by 5.5 points.

The Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Bills as the only 2-0 teams with games scheduled for Sunday afternoon.

The Chiefs will face the Indianapolis Colts at 1 p.m. on CBS. The New England Patriots will host the Ravens at the same time on Fox. The Eagles will also face the Washington Commanders at 1 p.m. on Fox.

Brady’s undefeated Buccaneers will meet Rodgers’ Green Bay Packers 1-1 at 4:25 p.m. Sunday on Fox. Teams led by Brady are 3-2 in head-to-head matchups against teams led by Rodgers. The Brady Buccaneers have beaten the Rodgers Packers twice in 2020-21, including in the NFC Championship Game en route to a Super Bowl title.

“He’s a great competitor,” Rodgers told reporters Wednesday when asked about Brady. “I love watching him play and enjoying the years and the memories of watching. We’ve played a few times over the years. I have a lot of respect for his game and what he’s accomplished in this league.”

Brady ranks first in NFL history with 626 career touchdown passes. Rodgers ranks fifth, with 451.

The Packers lost to the Minnesota Vikings and beat the Chicago Bears to start the season. The Buccaneers beat the New Orleans Saints and Dallas Cowboys. The Buccaneers are favored by 3 points over the Packers.

The Broncos host the 49ers at 8:20 p.m. Sunday on NBC. The New York Giants will host the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night in the final game of Week 3.
