(3:46) The Steelers are dealing with more injuries to their offensive line as another man is down on the field.

(3:44) The Chargers have to clean up these illegal shift penalties. Another touchdown was taken off the board against the Chiefs, while in the red zone. They trail only 21-24. A field goal will tie the game but their kicker did already miss an extra point. A two-point conversion made up for that, but the Chargers decide to take the points. The kick is good and the Chargers have tied the Chiefs 24-24 with 2:24 seconds left. Way too much time for Mahomes.

(3:43) Matt Ryan connected with… Lee Smith on a one-yard touchdown pass. Who? Why wasn’t it Calvin Ridley? Or Kyle Pitts? Argh.

(3:37) Myles Garrett has four and a half sacks for the Browns today. Poor Justin Fields.

Oh my…Ike Williams. (See what I did there?) He made a great yards-after-the-catch play to get the Chargers into scoring position.

Jamaal Williams touchdown was good for the Lions after the coach’s challenge. They trail by only two points to the Ravens, 16-14.

(3:36) Conner just added a second touchdown for the Cardinals on nine carries for 43 yards.

Story continues

(3:30) The Lions are back in the red zone and Swift is looking amazing despite the tough matchup. He gets it just short of the goal line. Jamaal Williams get into the end zone for the Lions on the back of Swift…. Maybe? No update yet on whether or not he was officially in for a score. Ah, ruled no touchdown but HC Dan Campbell is challenging. Will keep you posted.

And Big Ben is back on the ground after another sack. Ouch.

(3:23) I do not understand why Julio Jones is on the sideline watching as the Titans face third down in the red zone. Oh well, Jeremy McNichols gets the receiving touchdown for Tennessee. Titans two-point conversion attempt is good with Derrick Henry running. Jones was still on the sideline, by the way.

The Giants are ready to score and the Saquon Barkley of old makes an appearance! He leapt high over the pile for a Giants touchdown against the Falcons. My goodness, he is a sight to behold when he’s healthy and crushing football. The Giants also go for two (these things happen in bunches, I swear) and Daniel Jones takes it in himself for two points.

(3:20) Herbert and Keenan Allen have the Chargers ready to strike just inside the red zone. It was Mike Williams who stretched out for the touchdown grab. The Chargers take the lead over the Chiefs 21-17.

Tyler Bass kicked in a field goal for the Bills after they failed to get it in the end zone.

(3:17) Flea flicker from the Jags! Oh no… it’s a pick-six and another score for the Cardinals. Yikes.

But Kareem Hunt is having a great game and just added a score on a bruising run for the Browns.

(3:13) Not to be left out of the all the touchdown actions, former Steelers RB James Conner scored a touchdown for the Cardinals. the score cut their deficit down 17-19 against the Jags.

Is it just me, or are the Lions rather surprising this year? We are nearing the end of the third quarter and they have held the Ravens to only 13 points. They keep the Ravens from the end zone again and Justin Tucker had to kick another field goal.

(3:08) It’s Emmanuel Sanders in the end zone for his second touchdown of the day.

(3:00) I see you Tannehill! Finally, he started using his legs and rushed for 28-yards to keep the drive alive… Oh no! Drive is no longer alive… Westbrook fumbled on the next play and the Colts take back over. Well, that stinks

D’Andre Swift, who seems to perpetually carry that loathed “Q” by his name is getting a workout against the Ravens but has yet to find the end zone. Goff found Hodge near the goal line and the Lions are in prime scoring position at the four-yard line. It is Swift that gets his touchdown to tie the Ravens.

James Robinson has redeemed himself with a touchdown for the Jaguars. The struggle of whether or not to start or sit him will continue to be an issue.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire also redeemed himself with a touchdown for the Chiefs.

Steelers have to kick a field goal against the Bengals for some semblance of dignity.

(2:58) The Bengals heap more points onto their lead with a touchdown strike from Burrow to long time teammate Ja’Marr Chase.

(2:56) The Cardinals give K Matt Prater a more reasonable 34-yard field goal attempt, which he put through with ease.

Oy. Big Ben is having a rough day. He was picked off and the Bengals are back on offense. Pittsburgh trails 7-17.

(2:54) Argh! Lamar Jackson, meet Mark Andrews. Mark, meet Lamar. Now go score some touchdowns, please. Thank you.

(2:47) Carson Wentz is still in the game despite spraining both of his ankles last week. They are going for it on fourth and inches and Jonathon Taylor converted for first down. They were unable to score a touchdown but Rodrigo Blankenship’s kick was good for three points. They trail the Titans by only one point, 14-13.

Joe Mixon was slow to get up after a first-down run against the Steelers. I will keep my eye on that as the game goes on. Mixon isn’t exactly known for his sustainability, so that is a little worrisome. Let’s hope it was nothing.

Patrick Mahomes connected with…. Er… Jody Fortson? Who is this person? That helps no one. Chiefs add the touchdown to their score, they trail 14-10 to the Chargers at home in Arrowhead.

(2:42) Odell Beckham Jr. set up the Browns with great field position on a long pass from Mayfield, who will hopefully start getting back to himself in the second half. The Bears have done a decent job keeping RB Nick Chubb somewhat contained. Chase McLaughlin comes through again with a long field goal for the Browns. They lead the bears 13-3.

Kyler Murray was picked off in the end zone on a target to DeAndre Hopkins. The Jaguars are trying everything they can to stay in this game and it’s impressive.

INJURY UPDATE: A.J. Brown has been ruled OUT for the rest of the game

Mac Jones threw his second interception for a pick-six. Saints lead 20-3 over the Patriots

(2:30) That didn’t last long. The Falcons returned the turnover favor with a Matt Ryan fumble.

Oh no! Marquise Brown dropped another big pass from Lamar Jackson. Ouch.

(2:22) OH MY WORD… we’re not done. Cardinals set up Matt Prater for NFL recorded-breaking field goal kick of 68-yards but his kick was just short. Jamal Agnew fielded the kick for 109-yard return for a Jaguars touchdown.

INJURY UPDATE: James White has been ruled OUT for the remainder of the day.

Tyler Bass kicked in a field goal for the Bills and the Patriots have to kick a field goal to put points on the board.

TE Engram Engram fumbled and the Falcons take back over with under a minute left to before the half.

(2:18) Matt Ryan connected with Olamide Zaccheaus for a Falcons touchdown against the Giants.

Marquez Callaway made an amazing contested catch in the end zone for a Saints touchdown.

TE Austin Hooper caught a touchdown for the Browns.

Ryan Tannehill was picked off.

And Ja’Marr Chase caught a 30-plus touchdown pass for the Bengals against the Steelers.

Phew! That was action-packed.

(2:17) Devin Duvernay got a 19-yard touchdown from Lamar Jackson. They extend their lead over the Lions 10-0.

(2:15) D.J. Chark caught a touchdown for the Jaguars on a 12-yard pass to the corner. Marvin Jones has also racked up five receptions for 51 yards so far. Cardinals and Jaguars are tied at 7-7.

(2:12) Steelers got into the end zone with rookie Pat Freiermuth on a short, 4-yard pass from Ben Roethlisberger.

(2:05) Somehow, the kicker Dustin Hopkins came down with the football after the kick-off and the football went bouncing all over the place. Washington is back in prime scoring position. Logan Thomas got inside the five-yard line. Gibson dropped a pass that was directly in his hands. Yuck. Heinicke had to scramble out of the pocket on the next play and his diving attempt toward the pylon was good! Touchdown for Washington. They trail by only a score, 14-21.

Aldrick Rosas missed his second field goal for the Saints. They miss Will Lutz.

(2:02) It’s not a touchdown, but Calvin Ridley made a 20-yard play for the Falcons. I feel this is necessary since we hardly ever see the Falcons in the red zone and I think they may feel left out.

A big sack from the Patriots defense forces the Saints to look at third and long near just passed the 30-yard line. Kamara was unable to convert to a first down and the Saints will kick a field goal.

(2:00) Ravens put up their first score with a field goal from Justin Tucker who uncharacteristically missed an attempt earlier in this game. Ravens lead 3-0.

Nick Westbrook-Ikhine got his first touchdown of his NFL career for the Titans on an 18-yard pass from Tannehill.

Oh my goodness, Antonio Gibson! He ran in a 73-yard touchdown after a dump-off pass from Heinicke who was under serious duress. That was an impressive run.

(1:54) The Chargers are putting the heat to the Chiefs. Austin Ekeler scored a touchdown on 16-yard pass from Justin Herbert. This was the result of fumble by Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire, which is the third turnover for the Chiefs so far in this game.

(1:52) Ok, Dawson Knox – he hauled in a touchdown on an acrobatic play for a third score by the Bills over Washington who has yet to points on the board.

(1:50) Taylor Heinicke threw a pick and the speed of Terry McLaurin prevented the Bills from turning it into a pick-six.

INJURY UPDATE: Giants WR Sterling Shepard is on the sideline with what appears to be a hamstring injury.

(1:42) Trevor Lawrence was picked off and the Cardinals take over on offense. This won’t be a pretty game for the Jaguars.

The Browns are still struggling to put points on the board. Mayfield was nearly intercepted again, but Chase McLaughlin pulled through for three points on a 57-yard field goal. The Bears and Browns are tied at 3-3.

The Bills add another touchdown to their score against Washington with a score from RB Zack Moss.

(1:40) Lamar Jackson made a big play on a 31-yard scramble against Detroit.

Justin Herbert connected with Keenan Allen on a 4-yard pass to score against the Chiefs. They lead 6-0.

(1:33) Ugh, Lions. They were going for it on fourth down with a yard, but a false start pushed them back five yards. HC Dan Campbell keeps his offense on the field, but the Ravens’ defense was falling for it. Looks like they will punt after all.

Tyler Boyd scored for the Bengals on a 17-yard pass from Joe Burrow. They lead the Steelers 7-0.

Ryan Tannehill was picked off by Darius Leonard and the Colts are back on offense. Meanwhile, A.J. Brown is now questionable to return with a hamstring injury.

Bills caught a break with a big turnover on TE Logan Thomas to get the ball back

(1:28) Oh no, looks there may be some more drama in KC. Tyreek Hill caught a pass from Mahomes, but the defense stripped him. Ruling on the field is a completion, fumble, with the Chargers recovering. That is the second turnover of the game for the Chiefs.

(1:16) Bears kick a field goal to put three on the Browns and Giants do the same after being unable to convert in the red zone.

Derrick Henry (shocking) bulldozes his way to five-yard line, but it’s WR Chester Rogers, not A.J. Brown or Julio Jones, with the receiving touchdown for the Titans. Rogers is becoming annoying for fantasy managers.

Kyler Murray opens up scoring against the Jaguars with a rushing touchdown and Alvin Kamara gets the scoring rolling for the Saints against the Patriots.

What just happened in Detroit? D’Andre Swift tried to pass the ball back to Goff but it ended up being a turnover. No, never mind, Detroit still has the ball but Goff was promptly sacked.

(1:13) Wow! Diving interception by the Chargers after Mahomes’ pass bounced off the hands of Marcus Kemp.

(1:09) Josh Allen and the Bills kick off the day with a 28-yard touchdown pass to Emmanuel Sanders against Washington.

Ouch, Baker Mayfield just took a big sack after missing a few throws to wide open receivers.
