Russell Wilson left the game for one snap with 9:59 left in the third quarter. He was slow to get up after 49ers defender Eli Harold brought him down. It looked like Wilson's left leg bent awkwardly as he went to the ground. He entered the game with a right ankle injury he sustained in Week 1.

Asked to compare Carson Wentz to Ben Roethlisberger this week, Doug Pederson noted that one of Wentz's biggest strengths is that he "continues to have that vision down the field when things begin to break down." Pretty good example of that on the TD to Sproles.

QB Carson Wentz showing his ability to manage the pocket on the 73-yard TD pass to Darren Sproles. The rookie stepped up, found room to work outside of the pocket and kept his eyes up the field to locate Sproles. Eagles jump to a 20-3 lead over the Steelers in the 3rd quarter.

I've cringed at some of the Carson Wentz-Ben Roethlisberger comparisons. Roethlisberger is a unique player with a long list of historic accomplishments. But Wentz's touchdown pass to Eagles RB Darren Sproles was vintage Roethlisberger: Moving around the pocket, keeping his eyes downfield and following along with his teammates' attempts to improvise.

Dan Graziano ESPN Staff Writer 

Wentz escapes pocket, extends the play, keeps eyes downfield, finds Sproles, who foxtrots the rest of the way. Eagles look fantastic at the moment.

Trevor Siemian found success targeting Emmanuel Sanders Sunday, throwing two of his four touchdown passes to Sanders after throwing two interceptions targeting him in the first two weeks of the season. Sanders had 11 targets in the first half alone, the most first-half targets for any player in a game this season.

The Jets played a lousy half in all three phases and trail, 17-3. They committed three turnovers, with the Chiefs converting them into 17 points. No rhythm on offense and the defense has no answers for the Chiefs' short-passing attack.

Steelers were adamant during week that they had to control the Eagles' screen and misdirection plays. Well, the Eagles are gashing Pittsburgh's defense with the short game - 183 passing yards for Carson Wentz despite no deep shots. Eagles lead 13-3 at the half. Most impressive for Philly? Pittsburgh coming up empty in the run game so far.

Todd Gurley scores his first touchdown of the season, a 1-yard run on third down to make it 20-17 at halftime. Rams must take care of the football in the second half. Bucs have scored 13 points off turnovers. And the Rams are the last team that can afford to turn the football over. Gurley has been limited to 35 yards on 14 carries. He is averaging 2.66 yards per carry this season.

Jets CB Darrelle Revis was shaken up on a tackle and took himself out of the game. Looks like he might be getting checked for a concussion.

After scoring just 15 points the first two weeks, the Seahawks' offense exploded for a 24-3 lead over the 49ers at halftime. Jimmy Graham had three grabs for 105 yards and a score. Russell Wilson completed 14 of 19 passes for 233 yards. And Christine Michael carried 12 times for 82 yards.

Carson Wentz showed on that 10-yard run that he can beat you with his feet as well, but Eagles are hesitant to make it a part of the game plan to start. "He needs to prove that he's gotten the message [about not taking unnecessary hits] so that we can give him that responsibility and he can protect himself," offensive coordinator Frank Reich said this week.

Sheil Kapadia ESPN Writer 

Jimmy Graham has 100 yards receiving, and it's not yet halftime. He's only had one other 100-yard receiving game as a Seahawk. Graham continues a remarkable comeback story after suffering a ruptured patellar tendon injury last November.

Bucs running back Charles Sims told me this week that he's bothered by people thinking he's not capable of plowing between the tackles. "Everyone says that," he said. He told me he believes he is though. Looks like he was right. He showed he can handle short-yardage and run inside on that touchdown.

Jimmy Graham now has four catches for 57 yards and a TD on five targets. Doug Baldwin has three grabs for 105 yards. And Russell Wilson is 12-for-15 for 190 yards and a score. The Seahawks' offense has exploded for three touchdowns on five possessions so far in the first half.

Les Miles won a lot of football games as LSU's coach and guided the Tigers to the 2007 BCS national championship. But the "Mad Hatter" was also famously stubborn. After surviving an attempted coup by boosters to fire him last season, Miles did very little to change LSU's offense. He kept Cam Cameron, the same offensive coordinator, and started Brandon Harris, the same quarterback. After the Tigers lost twice and looked woefully inept on offense in September, LSU officials finally pulled the plug on Miles on Sunday. Only one month into the 2016 season, the Tigers are now at the front of the line in the race to hire Houston coach Tom Herman.

The Eagles used underneath smash routes (with an inside clear-out) on the Carson Wentz TD pass to Jordan Matthews. With the middle of the field open -- and Matthews working away from the defender's leverage -- Wentz could identify the target and get the ball out. Smart call in the red zone. Eagles jump to a 10-0 lead on the Steelers in the second quarter.
