The Dolphins ran play action with a flat route on the Ryan Tannehill TD pass to Damien Williams. That might be the most basic concept in every NFL playbook, but it takes advantage of poor defensive eye discipline in short yardage situations. Miami is now up 24-13 over the Browns in the 4th quarter.

The Vikings' steady pressure on Cam Newton has changed the tenor of this game. They've sacked Newton four times, and Tom Johnson's hit on the reigning league MVP came before Terence Newman picked off Newton's throw across the field. After trailing 10-0, the Vikings have a chance to make it a two-score game.

Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay was criticized throughout the week for some of his play calling, but he had two excellent screen calls on the last series, catching New York off guard. On the second one, Jamison Crowder took it 55 yards for a score. But the big key was guard Trent Williams taking out two blockers. Crowder's burst made a huge difference on the play. He has always done an excellent job running inside after the catch.

Panthers first-round pick Vernon Butler questionable to return with a right ankle injury.

Were it not for the job Bill Belichick is doing with the Patriots, Mike Zimmer would be the runaway September favorite for NFL coach of the year. The Vikings' scrappy performance at Carolina -- their 16-10 lead includes a safety and a special teams touchdown -- is awfully impressive.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Packers TE Jared Cook has been ruled out for the rest of the game because of his first half ankle injury. Same for FB Aaron Ripkowski (back).

NFL 

Ben Goessling ESPN Staff Writer 

The Vikings' touchdown drive was the first one today where Sam Bradford was able to throw the ball in rhythm, and Bradford connected on all six of his passes for 54 yards and the go-ahead touchdown. He's the type of quarterback who needs to be able to make plays in rhythm and get the ball out quickly, and if the Vikings can protect him in the second half, Bradford might be able to produce enough to help the Vikings maintain their lead.

Josh Norman lined up across from Giants WR Odell Beckham on 30 of the Giants' 34 plays through halftime. Beckham has 2 receptions for 44 yards on 4 targets on those plays

Jamison Hensley ESPN Staff Writer 

Joe Flacco's streak of completed passes end at 21. That's shatters previous Ravens record of 14. Flacco is 22 of 27 with 174 yards.

Dave Roberts asked Yasiel Puig if he wanted to play today. He said yes. He's dedicating the game to José Fernández.

Lots of points at MetLife Stadium. Norman/Beckham have behaved. Not huge factors. Half ends on boneheaded Kirk Cousins play, allows Giants to keep 21-16 at halftime.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders had 89 receiving yards and two touchdowns in the first half on Sunday. He had 88 receiving yards and no touchdowns in the first two games of the season. He averaged 82 receiving yards per game in 2014 and 2015.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski made his 53rd career field goal of at least 50 yards. That breaks a tie with Jason Hanson for the most such field goals in NFL history. Fifty-plus yard field goal have been challenging for kickers early this season. They entered the week 11-of-24 on such kicks.

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

After smothering Carson Palmer and holding the Cardinals to 2 net yards and no first downs on their first five possessions, the Bills allowed a 17-play touchdown drive to Arizona to cut Buffalo's lead to 17-7 at halftime. The Bills' offense is heating up behind 79 yards rushing from LeSean McCoy and new OC Anthony Lynn will need to keep his foot on the gas in the second half. An upset is brewing at New Era Field.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Broncos QB Trevor Siemian connected with Emmanuel Sanders for another TD pass on the quick out route in the red zone. With the Bengals playing off-man coverage inside, Sanders got a free release to stem up the field and then accelerate out of his break. Nice ball from Siemian to give the Broncos a 16-14 lead at the half.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

The Panthers dominated the first half statistically, holding a 205 to 34 edge in total yards, But they led the Vikings only 10-8 because they gave up a safety, 54-yard punt return for a touchdown and committed seven penalties for 40 yards. One of the penalties brought back a long touchdown catch by running back Fozzy Whittaker. It was the same kind of sloppiness that kept San Francisco close into the fourth quarter a week ago.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

The Browns opened as 10-point underdogs in Miami, but they left the field at halftime with a 13-10 lead. Terrelle Pryor's receiving (four catches, 62 yards) and his play running the read-option from quarterback helped the offense. The Dolphins left the field to a smattering of boos, as Ryan Tannehill was intercepted twice.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers threw 4 touchdown passes in the first half on Sunday. He threw only 3 in the first 2 games of the season. His career high for touchdown passes in a game is 6 against the Texans in 2012 and the Bears in 2014. He's the first QB to throw 4 TD passes in the opening half of a game this season.
