Jets WR Brandon Marshall (knee, foot) is expected to be on a snap count against the Chiefs, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. It means he could be limited to third downs and red zone. They could use him as a decoy, hoping he draws coverage away from Eric Decker and Quincy Enunwa. It'll also mean more snaps for rookie Jalin Marshall. Weather may not be as much of a factor as initially thought. Any rain (it's sunny now) is expected to stop a few hours before the 4:25 ET kickoff.

Bills WR Sammy Watkins will not play today vs. Cardinals because of lingering foot soreness, source tells ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. Watkins had his foot stepped on during a walkthrough practice this week, Rex Ryan said Friday. That's a big blow to new OC Anthony Lynn, whose top wideouts are expected to be Robert Woods, Marquise Goodwin and Greg Salas -- and Salas hurt his groin in Thursday's practice.

Washington didn't look like the nation's No. 9 team while slipping Arizona 35-28 in overtime, but that might be a mistaken impression because winning ugly is what good teams do. "We wanted to go through something that was going to be hard," Huskies coach Chris Petersen said. Washington's average margin of victory during its pillow-soft nonconference slate was 49-10. It hadn't trailed all season. So many things went wrong against the Wildcats, including four drives inside Arizona's 30-yard line that netted zero points. Still, the Huskies took Arizona's best shot, got out of their own way and won the game. Said quarterback Jake Browning, "I thought we showed a lot of grit in pushing through that stuff."

One of the biggest areas of weakness through three games for Texas A&M was their third-down offensive efficiency. Well, they excelled in Saturday's 45-24 win over Arkansas in that regard. The Aggies were 8-for-12 on third down. Trevor Knight, who was abysmal on third down in last week's win over Auburn, was 4-for-6 passing for 39 yards and ran three times for 162 yards and two touchdowns on third down. That'll win you some ball games.

There have been eight pass receptions of 90-plus yards in Texas A&M history. Josh Reynolds is the only player to catch more than one. He had the 92-yarder today and a 95-yard catch against Vanderbilt last season.
