Week three of the 2016 NFL season gets underway this evening with the Thursday Night Football at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts as the New England Patriots host Houston Texans (1.30am Fri morn).

Both of these sides reached the play-offs last season, with the Patriots narrowly losing 20-18 to eventual Super Bowl-winners Denver Broncos in the AFC Conference Championship, and the Texans receiving a 30-0 thrashing at the hands of Kansas City Chiefs in the Wild Card play-offs.

The triple-header on Sunday evening sees the New York Giants host Washington Redskins (6pm); Pittsburgh Steelers at Philadelphia Eagles (9.25pm); before the Dallas Cowboys host Chicago Bears on the Sunday Night Football.

And, the Monday Night Football is a juicy NFC South clash between the New Orleans Saints and Atlanta Falcons (1.30am Tues morn).

Mark Chapman will have previews and highlights on The NFL Show (BBC One, Sat 12am) and on NFL This Week (BBC Two, Tues 11.45pm)
