    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.


ESPN Stats and Information  

Per the Elias Sports Bureau, the Vikings-Eagles game was the first to feature 5 turnovers in the first 10 minutes since Dec. 21, 1986 (a game between the Cowboys and Bears).

49ers QB Colin Kaepernick gets a warm welcome back home before his first start of the season at Levi's Stadium. He's signing autographs for fans on both sides of the home tunnel.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Raiders WR Michael Crabtree did a great job selling the release on the TD pass from Derek Carr. With Crabtree stemming outside off the release, he created leverage back to the ball on the slant route. That's an excellent set-up move to get points. The Raiders push the lead to 20-6 over the Jags at the half.


Kevin Seifert NFL Nation 

It looked like Michael Crabtree realized that throat-slash gestures are against NFL rules just as he started doing it. He put his hand at his neck and then pulled it down. From a technical standpoint, he deserved the penalty. But in reality, it was a "throat" not a "throat slash" gesture.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Kevin Hogan is the 6th Browns player to attempt a pass this season. No other NFL team had more than 3 players attempt a pass this season.

Mike DiRocco ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jaguars' offense continues to be a mess. They've managed just six points and 152 yards against one of the worst defenses in the NFL and trail Oakland 20-6 at the half. The Raiders are last in the NFL in total defense (444.8 ypg) and pass defense (312.7 ypg). It's clear that there is something wrong with QB Blake Bortles. He has just five completions and threw another end zone interception. The only time the offense looked functional was when they went to hurry-up but it bogged down in the red zone.

Joe Gibbs Racing drivers Matt Kenseth (20), Carl Edwards (19) and Kyle Busch (18) dropped to the rear of the field at the start of the Chase elimination race at Talladega. They hope to avoid any big wrecks and be in position to advance to the next round. All those three drivers need is a top-20 finish today to advance.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Poll watching: No. 2 Michigan achieved its highest ranking in the AP Poll since the 2006 season. No. 4 Washington has its highest ranking since 2000. No. 7. Nebraska is at its highest rank in the poll since 2010. West Virginia is ranked in the top 10 for the first time since 2012. Penn State is ranked No. 24 for the first time since 2011.

Daniel Sorensen caught Kansas City's eye because of his special team skills as an undrafted rookie in 2014. But he's developing into a reliable defender and he's been one of the Chiefs' best players today as they lead the Saints 21-7 at halftime. The Chiefs are comfortable using Sorensen as a spare safety in passing situations because of his instincts and ball skills. He has a touchdown on a 48-yard interception return, a sack of Drew Brees and an open field tackle that forced a New Orleans punt.

Ben Goessling ESPN Staff Writer 

All three Vikings turnovers have been attributable to their protection issues. They've tried moving Jake Long, T.J. Clemmings and Jeremiah Sirles around at tackle today, but they haven't been able to create a clean pocket for Sam Bradford, who's fumbled twice and thrown an interception when he was hit.


Jamison Hensley ESPN Staff Writer 

Ravens QB Joe Flacco shows no signs of an injured shoulder, averaging 14.7 yards per completion as Baltimore leads, 16-14, at halftime. Special teams is carrying Ravens with three Justin Tucker field goals and Chris Moore's fumble recovery for TD off mishandled snap by punter.


Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

It was an eventful first half for the Jets, who trail the Ravens, 16-14. Geno Smith's hard-luck history with injuries continued. He left with a second-quarter knee injury, resulting in the return of Ryan Fitzpatrick -- four days after he was benched. Fitzpatrick provided a spark, leading a touchdown drive on his first series. It never fails; the Jets' quarterback situation always provides drama. Welcome to the last 40 years.


John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

Redskins corner Josh Norman hasn't covered Marvin Jones on every play, but it has been quite often – and it's been effective. Jones, who has been targeted 47 times this year – most on the Lions -- has yet to be targeted. Again, Norman's physical jams off the line have made a difference.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

Redskins receiver DeSean Jackson said he was quite happy being involved early last week. He can't say the same today. He has no catches in the first half vs. Detroit. Neither does teammate Pierre Garcon. That won't go over well with either player.


Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

Incredible catch by A.J. Green on a last-play-of-the-half Hail Mary from Andy Dalton. Green reached out with one hand as he fell to snag the ball and give the Bengals a 21-10 lead. Everyone knew the play was coming. The Bengals still scored.

James Walker ESPN Staff Writer 

Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi has 99 yards rushing in the first half. He has has 303 rushing yards in the past six quarters.

Katherine Terrell ESPN Staff Writer 

A.J. Green is unbelievable. He makes juggling catch in the end zone with at least three defenders draped all over him for a 48-yard Hail Mary touchdown pass by Andy Dalton. Green essentially tipped the ball to himself. The Bengals go into the half up 21-10

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

Bills safety Aaron Williams (head/neck) is officially out for the game.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick led the team to a go-ahead TD drive on his first series. He went 4-for-4 for 46 yards, including a 13-yard TD pass to Matt Forte. Sound familiar? A year ago, Fitzpatrick replaced an injured Geno Smith (see: IK Enemkpali) and led the Jets to a 10-6 record.

Points are almost non-existent in Detroit on Sunday as both the Lions and Washington have been unable to finish drives, leading to a 3-3 tie. Even the kickers have been off, as both teams have missed a field goal. The most concerning thing for the Lions, though, has to be the health of Darius Slay, who left in the second quarter with a hamstring injury.

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

49ers QB Colin Kaepernick will make his first home start of the season today at Levi's Stadium against Tampa Bay. Coach Chip Kelly wants to see more consistency from Kaepernick after a strong first half and poor second half last week in Buffalo.

Bills say Aaron Williams is questionable to return with head and neck injury.

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

Bills safety Aaron Williams was escorted by trainers and doctors directly to the locker room after remaining on the ground for several minutes. Williams took a hard hit from Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry, who launched himself into Williams while blocking for Jay Ajayi.
