Two quarterbacks who were taken No. 1 overall in the NFL Draft square will off Sunday when Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals take on Trevor Lawrence and the Jacksonville Jaguars. The No. 1 pick in the 2019 draft, Murray is averaging 344.5 passing yards per game this season for the 2-0 Cardinals, which ranks second in the league. Lawrence, who was selected No. 1 in April's draft, has struggled so far as the Jaguars have gone 0-2. Arizona is a 7.5-point favorite in the NFL odds from Caesars Sportsbook.

Top Week 3 NFL expert picks
After scouring his sources throughout the league, Goldberg is high on the Raiders (-4) to cover against the Dolphins. Las Vegas has been one of the most impressive teams so far with victories over two playoff teams from last season, the Ravens and Steelers. Miami is 1-1 after opening the season with a victory over the Patriots before losing at home to the Bills in Week 2.
Backup quarterback Jacoby Brissett, who is 12-20 in his career as a starter, will start for the Dolphins after Tua Tagovailoa was ruled out with fractured ribs. Brissett takes over an offense that has been one of the worst in the NFL this season, averaging just 237.5 yards per game. Only one team averages fewer. "I don't understand how this line isn't bigger," Goldberg told SportsLine.
