Jets 3 - Seahawks 40

Colts 44 - Raiders 27

Falcons 17 - Chargers 20

Washington 23 - 49ers 15

Saints 21 - Eagles 24

Packers 31 - Lions 24

(7:43) Washington hangs onto the win thanks in large part to their incredible defensive play.

(7:31) Eagles take a knee and take the game. Green Bay just needs a first down to take this game as well.

(7:27) Craziness needs a new line as the Lions and the Saints both went for the onside kick. The Lions were unsuccessful and Green Bay gets the ball back with 1:50. The Saints' attempt was also unsuccessful and the Eagles get another chance to hang onto the football and put this game away.

(7:24) Matt Prater adds three for the Lions but it's still a long way to go for the Lions.

Wow, Jared Cook! Hill connected with the tight end for a touchdown for the Saints. They are down 21-24 with 1:24 to play. They go for the on-side kick.

Lions go for an on-side kick, but Green Bay called a timeout.

(7:23) Ok, so it's a surprise turnover! The Saints have the ball back after it's punched out of Jalen Hurts' hands. Wow.

(7:17) Daniel connected with Jones to get the Lions in the red zone even taking a big hit in the process. Marvin Jones is slow to get up but he stays on the field.

Wil Lutz missed the field goal for the Saints, so it looks like the Eagles will take this win barring a surprise turnover.

Dwayne Haskins overthrew WR Terry McLaurin and the 49ers appear to have possession. They are looking now to see if the ball hit the ground.

(7:16) Jamaal Agnew runs back a 75-yard kick return to give backup QB Chase Daniel excellent field position.

Meanwhile, Taysom Hill just got sacked twice. Wonderful.

(7:14) Packers have Mason Crosby makes a long, 58-yard field goal to increase their lead by ten 31-21.

(7:10) Chargers are now in field goal range with 16 seconds on the clock tied at 17-17 with the Falcons. My goodness, Herbert threw a 26-yard pass for a fresh set of downs to Tyron Johnson. Badgley has an easier shot at with a 43-yard attempt to win the game..... the kick is GOOD!

INJURY UPDATE: Never mind ... Stafford is back out from the locker room and on the sidelines. Interesting but not surprising given that it's Stafford.

(7:07) Matt Ryan is picked off just as RB Miles Sanders gets in the end zone for the Eagles against the Saints who still trail with 6:22 to go.

INJURY UPDATE: Matthew Stafford is headed to the locker room and he is likely done for the day.

(7:00) Since nobody started Kerryon Johnson he, of course, rushed in the touchdown for the Lions. Derek Carr rushed in the touchdown for the Raiders. Kyle Juszczyk gets in the end zone for the 49ers. Yes, it took me nearly thirty seconds to try and get his name right. It gets me every time.

INJURY UPDATE: Matthew Stafford took a big hit as he rushed for a first down. He looks a little shaken up after the play.

(6:58) Taysom Hill fumbled on a fourth-down and two yards to go. Why they called a passing play instead of using... I don't know... Alvin Kamara to pick up the first down is beyond me.

(6:55) Oh my, tied at 17-17, Matt Ryan is picked off in the red zone and the Chargers take over.

(6:53) Interim HC Darrell Bevel is challenging the ruling of an incomplete pass to Marvin Jones. If the call is reversed, the Lions will be in excellent scoring position near the goal-line. The call stands and the Lions have a lot of work to do. I personally think that's a bad call and it should have been reversed.

(6:46) Backup QB Geno Smith (against his former team, mind you) has the Seahawks in scoring position. After Smith is sacked, they are facing fourth-down and the Seahawks send out the field goal unit for a 29-yard attempt. The kick is good and the Seahawks lead 40-3.

INJURY UPDATE: Calvin Ridley is down on the field with an injury but he did not leave the game.

The Eagles were unable to convert on third-down so the Saints have an opportunity to take the lead if they can make this drive count early in the fourth quarter.

Washington DST adds on to their excellent night with a pick-six while the Colts also have a pick-six of their own against the Raiders who are slowly imploding. Washington leads 23-7 while the Colts lead 44-20.

(6:43) The Colts settled for another field goal by Rodrigo Blankenship and extend their lead to 37-20 over the Raiders.

(6:38) The Packers are brutal. They are on another clock churning drive and the Lions' defense is doing their best to try and stop them. It's an uphill battle as the Packers keep eating away yards with the run game. Rodgers connected with TE Robert Tonyan and increase their lead 28-14.

(6:36) Taysom Hill connected on a deep pass to WR Emmanuel Sanders for a Saints touchdown. They now trail by three points 14-17 to the Eagles.

Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow fumbled and the Colts are back on offense.

(6:30) Colts RB Nyheim Hines rushed 31 yards to get them into scoring position against the Raiders who only trail Indianapolis by seven points. Raiders invade the neutral zone and the Colts get a fresh set of downs. Jonathan Taylor gets the touchdown to extend their lead by another TD.

Jalen Hurts and the Eagles are stuffed on a fourth-down conversion attempt. The Saints have a lot of work to do trailing by ten.

(6:23) QB Alex Smith looks to be headed to the locker room perhaps, while Washington is in scoring position against the 49ers. They kicked a field goal to increase their lead 16-7.

Meanwhile, Geno Smith is in for Russell Wilson as the Seahawks lead 37-3.

(6:17) A few teams are getting ready to score. The Raiders are facing fourth down and they settle for a field goal to cut the lead 27-20 against the Colts.

Austin Ekeler weaves his way through the Falcons defense for a 14 yard gain into the red zone. QB Justin Herbert threw the touchdown pass to Tyron Johnson.

The Saints are finally in scoring position against the Eagles with a nice run by Alvin Kamara who gets them to the five-yard line. He takes it to the house for the Saints' first score of the day.

The Packers are still on their drive just eating the clock while the Lions are trying the best to defend Aaron Rodgers but he rushed in a touchdown himself after the long, long drive in the third quarter.

INJURY UPDATE: Alex Smith is sidelined and Dwayne Haskins is in at quarterback for Washington.

(6:13) Russell Wilson is cooking, this time to WR David Moore for a Seahawks touchdown. They are ahead now 37-3 over the beleaguered Jets.

(6:10) Rodgers and the Packers are driving down the field on the Lions and chewing up a lot of clock in the process to start the third quarter.

Matt Ryan was also just picked off by the Chargers.

(6:01) I see you, Jonathan Taylor! He adds a 62-yard touchdown run for the Colts against the Raiders. Taylor is finally stepping up as the running back so many were excited to see.

(5:52) Chase Young is pretty much destroying the 49ers. He has a scoop and score for Washington. They lead 13-7.

Raiders add three points with a field goal against the Colts. Las Vegas is down 17-20.

Russell Wilson has been getting lit up by the Jets Defense, by the way. He still threw a touchdown to TE Will Dissly.

(5:43) Jalen Hurts is using his legs, even more than Taysom Hill in this matchup, and gets the Eagles within field goal range before the half. The Eagles are making mincemeat of the Saints Defense. Hurts took it again, this time within the ten-yard line. With two seconds left to go, the Eagles march out K Jake Elliott but he missed the field goal. It's been a rough day for kickers.

(5:41) Dustin Hopkins was back up for Washington and his kick is good. They trail the 49ers 6-7.

(5:30) The Colts want to extend their lead against the Raiders before halftime. Rodrigo Blankenship is on for the field goal with one second remaining. His kick is good and the Colts have a 20-14 lead.

Dustin Hopkins for Washington kicked a long field that he made this time and they cut the 49ers lead 3-7.

Jets opt to go for a field goal by Sergio Castillo who has missed two times already... his third kick isn't any better and he has now missed three field goals today.

D'Andre Swift, who was in danger of missing this game, rushed in a touchdown for the Lions. They are tied against the Packers 14-14.

There you are, Miles Sanders! He breaks off an 82-yard touchdown run against the staunch Saints Defense. They have a commanding lead 17-0 over the Saints.

(5:25) Poor Jets. RB Chris Carson for the Seahawks rushed in a touchdown to extend their lead 23-3 after the extra point was no good.

(5:21) The Eagles tack on three more after the interception. They lead the Saints 10-0.

(5:20) Matt Ryan connected with Laquon Treadwell for a short-yardage touchdown for the Falcons. They lead the Chargers 17-10.

(5:15) Oh man, Taysom Hill can't seem to get much going with RB Alvin Kamara and the Eagles come away with the interception and excellent field position.

(5:13) Raiders QB Derek Carr looked long in the end zone for TE Darren Waller but the Colts come up with a one-handed interception. That's the second one-handed interception we've seen in the NFL today.

(5:09) The Chargers actually may a big play on special teams! Nassir Adderley ran Koo's kick back 76 yards. After all of the mistakes this season, let's celebrate all of the victories. Even K Michael Badgley made his 35-yard field goal.

(5:05) Younghoe Koo added three points for the Falcons with a field goal right up the middle of the uprights.

(5:01) It's T.Y. Hilton again - he gets in the end zone for his second touchdown of the day.

49ers RB Jeff Wilson rushed in a one-yard touchdown against Washington for the first score of the day for that game.

(4:58) Aaron Rodgers is doing Aaron Rodgers things and threw a touchdown pass to Marquez Valdez-Scantling. The Packers are in the lead 14-7 over the Lions.

(4:55) Raiders score again against the Colts with a 21-yard touchdown pass to WR Nelson Agholor. They lead the Colts 14-10.

Ok, Jalen Hurts - he connected with WR Alshon Jeffery for a touchdown but there is a flag on the play. We'll see if the touchdown stands... and it does. The flag was for roughing the passer.

(4:52) Jets veteran RB Frank Gore fumbled to give the Seahawks the ball right back. They settle for a field goal to extend their lead 17-3.

(4:51) Washington's field goal is no good against the 49ers who both remain scoreless with over five minutes to play.

(4:50) Trick play for the Falcons! Russell Gage took over as QB with Matt Ryan lined up as a receiver. Gage threw a dime to WR Calvin Ridley for a beautiful touchdown.

(4:47) Saints kicker Wil Lutz uncharacteristically missed a field goal and they are still tied at zero.

Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf is back in the game and scored a touchdown after a minor injury had him sidelined for a few plays.

INJURY UPDATE: WR Deebo Samuel is out already with a suspected injured hamstring. His return is questionable.

(4:40) This should come as no surprise as QB Justin Herbert found WR Keenan Allen to get the Chargers on the board against the Falcons.

(4:37) The Raiders open up their scoring to Foster Moreau for a touchdown against the Colts. They are down 7-10.

(4:32) Wilson threw an interception in the end zone intended for Metcalf.

TE T.J. Hockenson scored for the Lions in a division rivalry against the Packers.

(4:30) T.Y. Hilton continues his resurgence into fantasy relevance with a touchdown. This is Hilton's third touchdown in three straight games.

(4:19) Is it time for Russ to start cooking again? He connected with Freddie Swain for a Seahawks touchdown. Sorry, it wasn't D.K. Metcalf or Tyler Lockett.

(4:14) Jets start their game against the Seahawks with a field goal as do the Colts against the Raiders.

1:00 PM EST Final Scores

Broncos 32 - Panthers 27

Vikings 14 - Buccaneers 26

Chiefs 33 - Dolphins 27

Cardinals 26 - Giants 7

Titans 31 - Jaguars 10

Cowboys 30 - Bengals 7

Texans 7 - Bears 36

(4:15) K Jason Sanders' kick is good but that only brings their total to 27 to the Chiefs' 33 lead with 20 seconds left on the clock. The Chiefs have this game in hand.

(4:08) Dolphins are punishing the Chiefs' run game but K Harrison Butker's kick is good and added three more for the Chiefs. They lead 33-24.

(3:55) Tagovailoa took it in himself for a Dolphins touchdown to trail only six 24-30 to the Chiefs with just over four minutes left.

(3:50) The Panthers strike right back with a touchdown for RB Mike Davis. The Panthers still trail 32-27.

INJURY UPDATE: Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki is headed to the locker room.

(3:47) Holy cow, Lock delivered a 49-yard touchdown bomb to K.J. Hamler for his second touchdown of the game.

(3:45) RB Tony Pollard scored a receiving touchdown for the Cowboys while Ezekiel Elliott continues to struggle for the Cowboys.

(3:37) Bridgewater is fighting to get his Panthers back in this game against the Broncos down 25-17. They had to settle for a field goal and trail 20-25 with just under five minutes.

(3:35) TE Gesicki adds another touchdown on his day after Mahomes' turnover.

(3:31) This hurts fantasy managers, but Mahomes was picked off for a third time with an amazing "You got Mossed" grab by Xavien Howard.

(3:27) Cousins is getting punished in the red zone and they try another field goal after Dan Bailey has missed two field goals and an extra point. You guessed it. He missed this one, as well. That's 10 points he has left on the field.

(3:21) Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater took it in himself for a 7-yard rushing touchdown.

(3:15) Watson's touchdown was taken off the board after the touchdown was reversed on third and goal. Watson is down on the field after an incomplete pass and it doesn't look good. Backup QB A.J. McCarron is on the field.

(3:11) TE Jordan Aikens completely missed a touchdown reception wide open in the end zone. The sun was the likely culprit, but it was a bad drop. Deshaun Watson took it in himself for a Texans touchdown but the play is under review. Watson may have been down before breaking the plane.

(3:08) Fumagalli's touchdown was taken off the board after review, but Tim Patrick finished the job and scored for the Broncos.

Ok, tight ends continue... Vikings Irv Smith scored a touchdown as the Vikings go for two, which is successful to Justin Jefferson.

Tagovailoa was sacked in the end zone and the Chiefs have a safety. They now lead 30-10 over the Dolphins.

(3:05) TE Troy Fumagalli had some beastly YAC yards and scored a TD for the Broncos. If only Noah Fant was in the game.... that is two touchdowns for the TE position.

Speaking of tight ends, Jaguars Tyler Eifert got them into position for WR Keelan Cole to score the touchdown.

Miami recovered after Hardman fumbled.

(3:02) Golden Tate came down with a big grab for the Giants to set them up inside the red zone, but it's Dion Lewis with the touchdown instead of Wayne Gallman.

(2:56) Kenyan Drake finally found the end zone with a short touchdown. The Titans are in a solid of 31-3 over the Jaguars. Jacksonville put in Gardner Minshew over Mike Glennon.

Joey Slye added three for the Panthers. They trail the Broncos 19-10.

Bears kicked a field goal for a 33-7 lead over the Texans. I take back everything I said about the Bears having no offense. Wow. QB Mitchell Trubisky is currently the QB1 for the day with three touchdown passes.

(2:54) Another touchdown for Derrick Henry!

(2:51) The Chiefs are turning on the burners. Mecole Hardman returned a 67-yard punt return for a touchdown.

INJURY UPDATE: A.J. Brown is back in the game.

(2:46) K.J. Hamler scored a 37-yard touchdown from Drew Lock. Brandon McManus missed the extra point (there was also had a missed extra point in Tampa after a Rob Gronkowski touchdown).

Tyreek Hill found the end zone for the Chiefs on a 44-yard touchdown.

(2:43) Derrick Henry busted off a 47-yard run to set up the Titans in the red zone but the touchdown went to TE Geoff Swaim... not Jonnu Smith or Henry.

INJURY UPDATE: A.J. Brown is slow to get up and is questionable to return.

(2:33) Bears WR Allen Robinson is on the board with a short touchdown. The Bears have a commanding lead over the Texans 30-7 after an earlier touchdown by WR Darnell Mooney stands.

(2:27) With time at zeros before the half, Tom Brady threw a hail Mary and was nearly picked off but a defensive pass interference puts the ball on the one-yard line. Instead of trying for a touchdown, they elect to kick it to tack o three more points to lead 17-6.

(2:22) TE Travis Kelce scored a 6-yard touchdown for the Chiefs against the Dolphins.

(2:17) Titans RB Derrick Henry finally scored a 36-yard touchdown. He is over 120 yards so far today.

(2:13) Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa was picked off.

Drew Lock threw a touchdown pass to TE Nick Vannett... which should have been Noah Fant but he's currently questionable to return.

Buccaneers at another touchdown to their lead with a touchdown from RB Ronald Jones.

(2:11) Touchdown for A.J. Green. Yay. If it was 2017, I might be happy about that. As it's 2020, I shouldn't be surprised.

INJURY ALERT: Broncos TE Noah Fant is questionable to return with an illness.

(2:02) I am very sorry if you started K Dan Bailey. He missed his second field-goal after also missing an extra point.

SAFETY for the Bears!

TE Dan Arnold is back with another touchdown for the Cardinals.

(1:51) Houston's RB Duke Johnson, in for the inactive David Johnson, caught a 48-yard reception. QB Deshaun Watson followed the play up with a touchdown pass to WR Keke Coutee who is the de facto WR1 with no Will Fuller or Brandin Cooks.

Scotty Miller scored a touchdown for the Buccaneers because we all actually need Chris Godwin or Mike Evans to score.

A no-huddle on fourth down for the Titans forced RB Jeremy McNichols to try and go for it since RB Derrick Henry was not in the previous play. Needless to say, they didn't make it.

Bronco's QB Drew Lock was sacked and the Panthers' Jeremy Chinn recovered. That is the Broncos' 29th giveaway this season, which is the most in the NFL. RB Mike Davis rushed in the touchdown for the Panthers.

Cardinals kicked a field goal (Nugent's second on the day) and QB Kyler Murray looked a little shaken up after that drive.

(1:43) Of course, TE Jimmy Graham scored a touchdown for the Bears after being silent the past several weeks.

Dan Bailey missed a field goal for the Vikings but Jason Sanders made his field goal for the Dolphins.

(1:36) Dolphins DST is stepping up... they intercept Mahomes... again.

(1:31) Vikings drew first blood against the Buccaneers with a touchdown by RB Dalvin Cook. That is the first score and it's the second quarter.

(1:23) Holy cow, Mahomes, who just threw an interception on their previous drive, was sacked for a loss of THIRTY yards. Wow. That's a lot.

(1:17) Well, it may be one of those days. We had another turnover, this time by the Bengals and the Cowboys scoop and score.

Duke Johnson also fumbled against the Bears.

Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders missed his field goal after the Chiefs turnover.

But, hey, here is some good news. Mike Nugent, filling in for an injured Zane Gonzalez, made his 34-yard field goal. I had forgotten about that guy. Welcome back to the NFL!

(1:15) Titans WR A.J. Brown scored a 37-yards touchdown against the Jaguars who had a blocked field earlier in the game.

(1:11) My goodness, the turnovers! Patrick Mahomes was picked off by the Dolphins. With their depleted backfield, we'll keep an eye on their progress.

But, there is some good news! Bears RB David Montgomery just busted off an 80-yard touchdown run. I hope you were able to trade for him before the deadline with these amazing playoff matchups he's facing.

(1:08) Both teams couldn't do much with the turnovers. The Cardinals were stuffed at the goal-line and turn it over on downs while the Cowboys settled for a field goal.

(1:06) Oh no. That's not a great way to start your first game back, Daniel Jones. He was strip-sacked and the Cardinals take over on offense.

And, it's Giovanni Bernard's time to shine in the not-so-great limelight as he fumbled. The Cowboys get to take over on offense in Andy Dalton's revenge game.
