Highly questionable pass interference call against Bills CB Stephon Gilmore, who put hand on Amari Cooper as ball looked to be uncatchable. Doubt Rex Ryan will be agreeing with that one after the game.

No idea how Bucs RB Doug Martin got those last three yards, but somehow he crossed the goal line to make it 7-7 with 1:08 to go in the first quarter. The Chargers might have the sixth-ranked rush defense in the NFL but they've given up 15 rushing touchdowns, second-most in the NFL.

Players all openly welcomed the Jeff Fisher news, particularly Alec Ogletree, Lance Kendricks, Dominique Easley, Will Hayes and Todd Gurley. They said they like him as a coach, believe the struggles lie on the players. I know that's what they have to say, but Fisher does have genuine love in the room.

Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is off to a tough start, completing just three of his first eight passes for 26 yards. He's had two passes that were low to targets, one appeared to stem from changing his arm slot a little as the Cardinals stunted around to the side he was throwing. The Redskins would be wise to start running the ball a little more. They've called one run play in the first two series.

49ers coach Chip Kelly said the move to Blaine Gabbert at QB was intended to spark the offense in the fourth quarter and nothing more. Asked if he intended to go back to Colin Kaepernick next week against the Jets, Kelly said that's not something that's even been discussed yet.

Still think there are no issues with Derek Carr's right pinkie? On 3rd and 1 Carr was still in the shotgun, rather than under center, and the Raiders could not convert. Perhaps more shocking, gambling Jack Del Rio punted on 4th and less than a yard. Then again, that may have needed Carr under center, no?

49ers QB Colin Kaepernick said he was "surprised" that he got pulled for Blaine Gabbert in the fourth quarter. Kaepernick said he didn't feel it was his place to put up a fight when QB coach Ryan Day informed him of the change. He offered a similar answer when asked if he believed he will be the starter moving forward.
