    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.

The Vikings had committed only one turnover this season before today. Other teams that recently had only one turnover to this point in a season finished with 18 and 21, respectively. Things do tend to even out.

Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry gets an unsportsmanlike penalty for taunting after a 26-yard reception. Not good. One more similar penalty and Landry is ejected for the game.

After assessing the field, Tom Brady has a quick word with athletic trainer Jim Whalen on his way back to the locker room.

Dolphins Jay Ajayi off to great start with 49 rush yards on seven carries. Should solidify RB2 status moving ahead if this keeps up.


Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

It wouldn't be a Jets game without a long pass play allowed by the defense. Mike Wallace beat Buster Skrine for 53 yards, with Calvin Pryor blowing a chance for an INT by letting the ball go through his hands. It was the ninth completion of 40+ yards against the Jets.

How much does Blake Bortles trust his receivers? Enough to throw to Marqise Lee into triple coverage...and David Amerson, who has had a rough couple years of weeks, made him pay with the interception in the end zone. "He didn't have any clue where Amerson was," Tom Flores said of Bortles on the Raiders radio broadcast. It is Amerson's second INT of the season.


Mike DiRocco ESPN Staff Writer 

Jaguars QB Blake Bortles has only had seven turnover-free games in his career. His record in those games is 5-2. His record in the other games is 5-22.


Eric Karabell ESPN Senior Writer 

Ugh. Five turnovers already in first quarter in Vikings-Eagles. Ugly football. Wentz and Bradford both look awful. Not that either came recommended in fantasy.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

Spencer Ware isn't fast by standards of an NFL running back but his ability to run in the open field and break tackles gives him big-play potential. He just took a screen pass 46 yards for a touchdown that allowed the Chiefs to tie the Saints at 7-7.

Jamison Hensley ESPN Staff Writer 

Ravens QB Joe Flacco answers any questions about arm strength with a 53-yard pass to Mike Wallace. The pass went 45 yards in the air. Jets have allows most passes over 20 yards this season.

Kevin Seifert NFL Nation 

Again: Both of Sam Bradford's first-quarter turnovers have been prompted by the Eagles' pass rush. The Vikings are trying to re-make their offensive line at midseason amid a rash of injuries and it's not going well. Easily the most vulnerable spot of the their roster.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

More adversity for the Jets: C Nick Mangold limped off the field with an injury to his right foot/ankle. He was taken immediately to the locker room. RT Ryan Clady rolled up the back of Mangold's leg.

Sam Bradford's first INT of the year spoils a golden chance for the Vikings, who started drive on Eagles' doorstep thanks to a Carson Wentz interception. Credit Brandon Graham with the pressure, Rodney McLeod with the pick.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

A huge special teams gaffe has put the Jets in a 7-0 hole. Rookie P Lachland Edwards muffed a snap deep in his own end, and the Ravens recovered for a TD. Edwards was actually charged with two fumbles on the play. He recovered the muff and lost it again. This is the kind of year it has been for the Jets.

Landon Collins' game was worth 14 fantasy points, using ESPN's traditional IDP scoring. That gives him, for the time being, a share of the season lead among all IDPs with Zach Brown (68). Collins has averaged 9.7 fantasy points per game this season, more than a point better than any other DB.

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

Bills' league-leading red zone defense, led by Rob Ryan, holds again to force a field goal after Dolphins' 14-play, 79-yard drive.

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

The Giants defense/special teams' 20 fantasy points tied for the second-most in any of the 16 games in London thus far, trailing only the Jaguars' 22 in 2015 Week 7. Unfortunately, they were started in only 21.6 percent of ESPN leagues.

Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer 

It's no secret that the Colts are bad on defense (31st in the NFL). It just got even worse when Titans QB Marcus Mariota threw a 10-yard TD pass to offensive lineman Taylor Lewan

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

If Kansas City's first drive was an indication, don't expect to see much from Jamaal Charles today. The Chiefs used Charcandrick West and not Charles to spell Spencer Ware.

Jeff Fisher has become the third coach to lose 160 games in NFL history. He is now five shy of Dan Reeves for the most in NFL history.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Not surprised by Jeff Fisher's declaration after the game. His preference from the start was for Jared Goff to sit all year. But you have to wonder: How much of that is simply on Goff not being ready? Troubling if they don't truly believe he can be better.
