7:35 - Go, Jacobs! He busted through the Seahawks' defense for a monster 86-yard touchdown to win the game.
7:33 - Smith was nearly sacked on third down (Crosby again) but he was able to get off an incomplete pass to save the loss of yards. Either way, the Seahawks have to punt.
7:30 - Carlson is out for a 56-yard field goal attempt. The kick is no good! Wide right.
7:23 - The Raiders start overtime with possession. Jacobs is having a great game with over 125 rushing yards and Las Vegas is leaning on him in extra time.
7:20 - The Raiders-Seahawks game is going into overtime.
7:16 - Smith was smothered by Maxx Crosby on third down. This was after a reception by Metcalf was taken off the board. The Seahawks were forced to punt.
7:15 - The Chiefs are inside the 10-yard line and attempting to score one more time before time and put the game away. The Rams were able to stop the Pacheco on third down and they settle for another field goal. The Chiefs lead 26-10 with 1:44 to go.
7:12 - Murray's pass was incomplete and there are now six seconds remaining. His next pass was broken up and the Chargers take home the win.
7:11 - The Saints just turned it over on downs with six minutes left to go. The 49ers may have a shutout in this game leading 13-0.
7:08 - Herbert hit Ekeler for a passing touchdown and instead of going for the tie with an extra point, the Chargers are going for two. The two-point conversion attempt is GOOD! Gerald Everett caught the pass and the Chargers lead the Cardinals 25-24 with 15 seconds on the clock.
7:05 - Chris Olave just threw a pass interference call in the end zone.
Meanwhile, Carr hit Foster Moreau for a five-yard touchdown reception. Carlson's extra point tied up the game with the Seahawks 34-34 with 1:54 left to go.
7:04 - Perkins just threw another interception.
7:00 - Jacobs may have coughed up the football but the officials whistled him down. Head coach Pete Carroll is challenging the ruling. Ok, never mind. That whole thing turned into a weird false start. I am still not sure exactly what happened. Either way, the Raiders are still on offense heading into the two-minute warning.
6:58 - On third and goal, Mahomes was almost picked off again. They will roll out Harrison Butker for a short-field goal to extend their lead by three.
6:55 - The Chiefs returned the favor and picked off Perkins. They take over on the 10-yard line in position to score.
6:52 - Mahomes was just picked off in the end zone! At the same time, Andy Dalton was just picked off!
Travis Homer just caught an 18-yard touchdown pass from Smith for the Seahawks.
That was a crazy 45 seconds.
6:45 - The Chiefs are getting ready to score on the nine-yard line but are facing third down. A face mask penalty takes them half the distance to the goal and a fresh set of downs.
6:42 - The Raiders went for it on fourth and inches but the play collapsed after Carr pitched it to Jacobs behind the line of scrimmage.
6:40 - Just kidding. The Rams go for it on fourth down at the beginning of the fourth quarter and Perkins found Van Jefferson for a seven-yard pass and catch.
6:37 - Tied 27-27, Geno Smith fumbled and the Raiders take over on their own 28-yard line.
INJURY UPDATE: Christian McCaffrey is dealing with a leg injury of some kind but is still out on the field.
6:33 - The Rams were able to convert on third down from Bryce Perkins to Tutu Atwell. Most of these players are from the preseason. Facing fourth down again, the Rams line up to go for it, but it looks like they will go for the field goal to start the first quarter.
6:28 - Herbert just scrambled for a 23-yard gain and the first down to midfield. Ouch, he was then sacked but managed to pitch the ball off to Austin Ekeler.
6:23 - Conner just bulldozed his way to a first down to get the Cardinals to the 9-yard line against the Chargers. Murray found Conner for a six-yard touchdown reception.
6:20 - The Chiefs add another touchdown to their score from rookie Isiah Pacheco on a three-yard run. They have a commanding lead over the Rams 20-3.
6:14 - Guess what? Another field goal. Robbie Gould kicked a successful 46-yard field goal. The 49ers lead the Saints 13-0.
INJURY UPDATE: Mitchell is questionable to return.
6:13 - Fun… another field goal. Daniel Carlson tied up the game 27-27 with a successful kick for the Raiders.
6:11 - The Chargers had to settle for a 26-yard field goal. The kick was a low, line drive, but it was good.
6:07 - Nice catch by Jacobs! That got the Raiders to third down and two to gain.
Oh hey… Was Allen in? Bummer, he was out of bounds, but it was a pretty, pretty play.
6:01 - Walker rushed in his second touchdown on a 14-yard run. The Seahawks retake the lead 27-24 over the Raiders.
5:55 - Lockett made a big play of 28 yards to get the Seahawks to the Raiders' 35-yard line.
5:51 - The Chiefs kicked a 32-yard field goal to take a 13-3 over the Rams.
5:47 - San Francisco finally got a touchdown on the board with a five-reception from Jauan Jennings. They have a 10-0 lead over the Saints who are struggling on offense.
5:41 - There was almost a touchdown by Elijah Mitchell but that was taken off the board by a flag.
5:37 - The Raiders have to settle for a field goal with 14 seconds left in the half.
5:32 - Murray already has 109 passing yards and 33 rushing yards with 20 seconds left in the half and in scoring position. He punched in the rushing touchdown on his own and the Cardinals take the lead 17-14 over the Chargers.
5:22 - Jimmy Garoppolo made a big play to Brandon Aiyuk to get into the Saints' territory on the 43-yard line.
5:20 - The Chiefs had to settle for a field goal and extend their lead 10-3 over the Rams.
Meanwhile, Tyler Lockett made a beautiful catch for a 35-yard touchdown. They trail the Raiders 20-21.
5:15 - Patrick Mahomes scrambled and looked like he was going for the rushing touchdown but slid to a stop near the three-yard line. The next play went to Noah Gray for the score but there is a flag. The penalty was on offense so the score does not count.
5:13 - Back on offense, Josh Jacobs just scored on a 30-yard rush.
Justin Herbert found DeAndre Carter for a Chargers' touchdown on a 33-yard play.
5:12 - Both Carr and Smith each threw an interception in their respective games earlier.
5:09 - Kyler Murray was just intercepted and the Chargers have possession on the 44-yard line.
5:06 - Mack Hollins just scored a 36-yard touchdown on a flea flicker for the Raiders. They take the lead 14-13 over the Seahawks.
Matt Gay added a field goal at the beginning of the second quarter. Well, he tried at the end of the first, but they didn't get the ball off in time. Second time was a charm.
5:01 - Justin Herbert just busted off a 15-yard run to get the Chargers to the two-yard line. That turned into a touchdown reception for Keenan Allen.
4:57 - The Seahawks are in scoring position again on the 10-yard line. Unfortunately, a penalty on offense pushed them back on fourth down and they settled for a field goal. Seattle has the lead 13-7.
4:55 - A solid drive for the Chargers was cut short from a fumble by Joshua Palmer. Arizona will take over on offense.
4:50 - Travis Kelce bruised his way into the end zone on a 39-yard touchdown play from Patrick Mahomes. They have the first score against the Rams.
4:48 - Both the 49ers and the Cardinals added three to their scores with field goals.
4:44 - The Smith interception was taken off the board and that resulted in a Seahawks' field goal. That will give them the lead 10-7 over the Raiders.
4:36 - The Seahawks are in scoring position on the six-yard line. Oh, no! Geno Smith was picked off in the end zone by the Raiders. Ouch.
4:31 - DeAndre Hopkins is taking full advantage of having Marquise Brown on the field. He just scored a 33-yard touchdown for the Cardinals and they take an early lead against the Chargers.
Alvin Kamara just fumbled and the 49ers take over on offense.
4:23 - Ameer Abdullah just scored but the play is under review. The touchdown is good on an 18-yard pass from Carr.
INJURY UPDATE: Derek Carr is down on the field being attended to.
4:16 - James Conner just fumbled and the Chargers take over on offense near midfield.
4:07 - Oh, boy. Derek Carr just threw a pick on his first pass of the game. Pass intended for Davante Adams. That was quick. The Seahawks immediately converted that turnover into a Kenneth Walker touchdown on a 12-yard run.

4:42 - Tucker is out to kick a 67-yard field goal. The kick is SHORT! The Jaguars win at home against the Ravens.
4:30 - A Lawrence sack, ensuing fumble, and Jacksonville recovery are under review. The Jags retain possession. Wow! What a catch by Zay Jones! That big play resulted in a touchdown pass to Marvin Jones, but the play is under review. The ruling stands as a touchdown and the Jags are going for two instead of heading into overtime.
It's successful to Zay Jones! Jacksonville takes the lead by one with 14 seconds left in the game.
4:24 - Chubb is unable to go anywhere against the Buccaneers' defense from the four-yard line. On the next play, Chubb's push was good, but wait… there is a flag. The penalty is on the defense and the Browns win the game.
4:21 - The Ravens just took the lead with a touchdown from Jackson to Josh Oliver. The two-point conversion is good to Mark Andrews. They lead the Jaguars 27-20.

4:18 - Meanwhile, the Ravens are charging down the field with a long pass from L. Jackson to D. Jackson (DeSean Jackson) for a 62-yard gain.
4:15 - After both the Buccaneers and the Browns punted, the next score wins. The Buccs are on their own 39-yard line, third down, and nine yards. Myles Garrett took Brady to the ground. That is their seventh three-and-out today.

4:06 - Jamal Agnew caught the five-yard touchdown pass from Lawrence and they trail just 17-19 to the Ravens with just under six minutes to play.
4:00 - Lawrence connects with Zay Jones and converts on fourth down. Jones is having a great day with nine receptions for 108 yards. Hasty got the Jags inside the five-yard line.

3:46 - Nick Chubb has space… and was knocked out of bounds after a 28-yard gain to get to the Buccaneers' 11-yard line. David Njoku made a great, one-handed catch for a Browns' touchdown. If they make the extra point, they will tie the Buccaneers 17-17. The kick is good and we are tied with 32 seconds left to go and three timeouts.
Touchdown Jackson! But, the play is under review. That touchdown was taken off the board but they scored on the next play with a one-yard run from Gus Edwards.
Oh, boy. Atlanta just took a roughing the kicker penalty after almost getting the ball back for another shot on offense. That is an automatic first down for the Commanders and likely, the game.
3:45 - Oh no! Mariota's pass was deflected and the Commanders picked him off in the end zone. That should be the game with 1:10 left to go. The play is under review. If the Falcons can get the ball back, they may be able to have at least a few plays to come back. It will depend on their defense now.
3:42 - Ouch! Trevor Lawrence was taken down in a big hit and lost the football.
3:40 - The Jets just picked off Siemian.
Joe Burrow just connected with Tee Higgins for a 26-yard touchdown. They took the lead over the Titans 20-13.

2:53 - The Commanders just took the lead over the Falcons with a touchdown pass from Heinicke to TE John Bates. The extra point was no good, but they lead 16-10.
2:51 - Not sure if Sam Darnold just rolled into the end zone for a touchdown. The officials are trying to figure it out. This was after he lost the football, recovered it, and then rolled into the end zone. Yes, they are calling it a touchdown.
2:45 - The Jaguars are getting ready to score with one minute left in the half. The game was delayed due to lightning in the area. Their third down attempt from the four-yard line was incomplete. They settled for a field goal to take the lead 10-9 over the Ravens.
Tom Brady hit none other than Ko Kieft for a Buccaneers touchdown. Who?
2:30 - Tucker is out to kick his third field goal, this one for 55 yards. The kick is… perfect with space to spare.

2:13 - The Dolphins are adding insult to injury after forcing a fumble and an ensuing scoop and score. They are in the lead over the Texans 27-0.

2:03 - The Commanders were held to a field goal and they are tied 10-10 with the Falcons.

1:59 - Latavius Murray just ran for 52-yards but was held short of the goal line.
1:56 - The Ravens are having some trouble in the red zone. They trot out Tucker for a successful 29-yard attempt and lead the Jaguars 6-0.
Derrick Henry just got a full head of speed but … oh no! He fumbled but Treylon Burks recovered it and made his way into the end zone. So, you got the yardage from Henry but not the touchdown.
1:50 - Miami just scored another touchdown, this one from Jeff Wilson on a three-yard run.
1:45 - White and the Jets are driving down the field after a nice pass and catch from White to Elijah Moore. On third down and 11 yards to go, they could not convert for a first down and settled for a field goal. Which, was no good, by the way.
1:43 - We have three teams poised to score. Denver had to kick a field goal and trail the Panthers 3-7. Marcus Mariotafound MyCole Pruitt who was wide open in the end zone for the Falcons. The Titans had to settle for a field goal against the Bengals. That field goal is the first score in that matchup. The kicker is Caleb Shudak who is making his NFL debut today. His kick is good.
1:41 - Justin Tucker kicked a field goal to put three points on the board for the Ravens. That is the first score of the game for either team.
1:36 - But, of course! It's Byron Pringle who gets the touchdown for the Bears on a four-yard pass.

1:06 - The Browns open up today's scoring with a touchdown from Anthony Schwartz. His run came off a pitch by Kareem Hunt.
White got the Jets on the board with an eight-yard pass to Garrett Wilson. Time to find out who the starting quarterback is for the Bears.
1:03 - Some weird QB issues are going on in the Bears-Jets game. Zach Wilson was benched for Mike White, Justin Fields is inactive… then Trevor Siemian was hurt during pre-game warmups leaving Nathan Peterman at the helm. Then Siemian was pleading his case to be the starter so we don't know who is actually starting at quarterback for the Bears. The Jets are first on offense.
12:43 - The Ravens-Jaguars game may have a delay. They just cleared the stadium due to lightning.
