There were supposed to be a pair of locks on Sunday: The Atlanta Falcons over the Miami Dolphins and the Denver Broncos over the woeful New York Giants . Vegas had both teams set at -12, according to our SportsLine, and looked ready to roll over two struggling teams. However, chaos reared its ugly head, as the Dolphins stormed back from a 17-point deficit and the Giants utterly outplayed the Broncos for 60 minutes. Both teams lost.

Tampa Bay fans witnessed a scary sight on Sunday when franchise quarterback Jameis Winston left the game against Arizona with an injury. Winston, who had attempted only 10 passes to that point, was diagnosed with a shoulder injury and did not return to the game. The Buccaneers went on to lose 38-33, dropping to 2-3 on the season.
