The NFL's top three leaders in receiving yards will square off in the same game when the Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins collide on Sunday. Tyreek Hill leads the league in receiving yards (284), ahead of Stefon Diggs (270) and Jaylen Waddle (240). The last time the top three leaders in receiving yards played in the same game came on Nov. 16, 1980, when John Jefferson, Charlie Joyner and Kellen Winslow Sr. all suited up for the Chargers. Buffalo is favored by 4.5 points in the latest NFL odds from Caesars Sportsbook, but which side should you back with your NFL bets? The game is one of 16 on the Week 3 NFL schedule.

Top Week 3 NFL expert picks

After poring over the schedule for Week 3, Hartstein loves the Patriots (+3) to cover against the Ravens. Including the playoffs, New England (1-1) leads the all-time series between the teams, 11-4. Baltimore (1-1) is winless in six regular season games in Foxboro.

Hartstein points to a common opponent, the Dolphins, in backing the Patriots. New England gave up just 13 points to the high-flying Miami offense in Week 1, while the Ravens coughed up 42 last week. "It's the Patriots' home opener, and they're the far superior defensive team," Hartstein told SportsLine. See who else to pick in Week 3 here.
