    Dodgers vuelven a fallar al final

    Los Angeles lleva cuatro años ganando la División Oeste de la Liga Nacional y superando los $200 millones de dólares en nómina salarial de jugadores, pero no ha podido cumplir las enormes expectativas de su gran legión de seguidores.

Rex Ryan on LeSean McCoy: "He was cleared to play. We thought he was fine." Ryan adds, "I don't know if he wasn't 100 percent" -- yes, you read that correctly.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Bengals RB Jeremy Hill had 168 rushing yards on 9 rushes against the Browns, the most rushing yards on 10 or fewer attempts in a game since Maurice Jones-Drew had 177 in 2009.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

"Things were going OK so I just let it ride there." -- Andy Reid on giving the ball just once to Jamaal Charles.

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

The 49ers are giving up an average of 174.5 rushing yards per game, the most in all of the NFL, and the Bucs could not convert on third-and-2 or fourth-and-1 on their first possession.

Stafford rallies Lions to comeback win

Matthew Stafford found Anquan Boldin on an 18-yard TD with 16 seconds left to give the Lions a 20-17 win over the Redskins.


Adam Schefter ESPN Senior Writer 

Jamaal Charles today: 1 carry, 0 yards. Clearly not himself.


Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

The Bills' decision to start LeSean McCoy should be questioned after Buffalo collapsed Sunday in Miami, losing 28-23 after leading 17-6 late in the third quarter. McCoy gained only 11 yards on eight carries before his hamstring injury kept him on the bench for much of the second half. Buffalo's defense allowed 214 rushing yards to Jay Ajayi while the Bills weren't able to sustain offensive drives without an effective running game.

Ravens QB Joe Flacco on how to turn it around after losing four straight games: "You have to stay confident and keep your head up. It's a man's game."

Tim McManus ESPN Staff Writer 

Sam Bradford was sacked six times and hit 11 in the Eagles' 21-10 win over the Vikings. Credit defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz for getting out of his comfort zone and dialing up a number of blitzes that got home against a patchwork offensive line.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick believes he should start next week. He feels the coach, GM and owner lost confidence in him, leading to his benching. He believes his teammates still has confidence in him.

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

Matthew Stafford did it again. The Detroit Lions quarterback led a come-from-behind win again Sunday to beat Washington, 20-17. This is commonplace for Stafford, who has led 24 game-winning drives in his career in the fourth quarter or overtime -- including all four Lions wins this season. He has been the leader and heartbeat this season.

James Walker ESPN Staff Writer 

The Dolphins pick up a big win over the Bills, 28-25, to improve to 3-4. Running back Jay Ajayi became the fourth player in the Super Bowl era to post back-to-back 200-yard games. Miami will have two weeks to rest and prepare for the New York Jets.

Ben Goessling ESPN Staff Writer 

The 1972 Miami Dolphins can raise a glass once again. There are no more undefeated teams in the NFL, after the Vikings' 21-10 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, and a day where Sam Bradford was stripped of the ball four times left the Vikings with plenty to fix in the next week. Their offensive line, which has been an issue at various points since 2014, was a culprit again on Sunday, and a team that hadn't turned the ball over all season lost it four times on Sunday. The Vikings will have eight days to regroup before a Monday night game in Chicago.

Eric D. Williams ESPN Staff Writer 

Chargers WR Tyrell Williams with a 49-yard reception, setting up a 2-yard TD for Melvin Gordon two plays later. Chargers lead Falcons early 7-0. Williams will be a mismatch for Atlanta's secondary all game. Gordon now has eight TDs on the year.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

Redskins left tackle Trent Williams sprained his knee and will undergo an MRI on Monday coach Jay Gruden said.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Jets coach Geno Snith (knee) will have tests to determine the severity of his injury, per Todd Bowles.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

After leading by 14 points at halftime, the Chiefs needed to sweat a little more than they wanted in the second half to hold off the Saints 27-21 at Arrowhead Stadium. But the Chiefs, who heading into last week's game against the Raiders looked on the brink of extinction from the AFC West race, aren't complaining. They won their second straight game to go to 4-2 and at least for the next day are tied for second place in the division, a half-game behind Oakland.

Bills WR Marquise Goodwin is being evaluated for a possible concussion.

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

Once again, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, safety Eric Reid and linebacker Eli Harold knelt during the national anthem in protest of racial inequality and oppression in the United States. Safeties Antoine Bethea and Jaquiski Tartt and cornerbacks Keith Reaser and Rashard Robinson continued to raise their right fists during the anthem as well. RB Mike Davis, who is expected to start with Carlos Hyde out with a shoulder injury, did not raise his fist as he's done in past weeks.

A.J. Green emerges with Hail Mary TD

The Bengals WR had a huge game with eight catches for 169 yards, including a TD on this 48-yard Hail Mary grab to end the first half in a 31-17 win over the Browns.


ESPN Stats and Information  

Saints QB Drew Brees is the first player in NFL history with 100 career 300-yard passing games.

Mike Triplett ESPN Staff Writer 

As usual, it's never over with the Saints, whether they're up by two scores or down by two scores. A TD pass from Drew Brees to Brandon Coleman makes it Chiefs 24, Saints 21 with 2:33 remaining. Saints only have one timeout left.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Veteran route from Lions WR Anquan Boldin. Quick shake move and stem to gain inside leverage on the coverage. And with no immediate help, QB Matthew Stafford had a clean window to deliver the ball for a TD. Lions take back the lead 20-17 over the Redskins.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Dolphins RB Jay Ayaji is the first player to rush for 200 yards in back-to-back games since Ricky Williams of the Dolphins in 2002. The only other players to do that besides those two are O.J. Simpson (1973 and 1976) and Earl Campbell (1980).

Halfway through the Chase elimination race at Talladega, Brad Keselowski has led 53 of the 94 laps. Keselowski doesn't have to win but can only guarantee advancement to the next round with a victory at Talladega -- the same way he advanced to the next round in 2014.
