In what feels like a decade ago, the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3, 25–11. In Week 9, the Kansas City Chiefs and Miami Dolphins linked up in Germany, with Kansas City taking a 21–0 halftime lead before holding on, 21–14. And finally, the Houston Texans and Cleveland Browns played in Week 16, with Cleveland winning 36–22.
