Under Chip Kelly Eagles were dead last in T.O.P. all 3 seasons. 2016? Holding the ball almost 14 minutes longer than opposition. NFL best

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said that running back Ryan Mathews' ankle "stiffened up" in first quarter and they decided not to risk further injury. He expects tight end Zach Ertz (rib) and corner Leodis McKelvin (hamstring) back after bye.

This Week In 1995: NFL sues Jerry Jones for $300 million for undermining league sponsorship deals. Jones had signed a deal with Pepsi when league had deal with Coke. Jones eventually was granted the right to do individual deals and today is the only team that controls the distribution of its own merchandise.

The Steelers offense struggled mightily when not targeting Antonio Brown. Ben Roethlisberger was 12-of-18 for 140 yards when throwing to Brown, 12-of-26 for 117 yards and a interception when throwing to others.

QB Trevor Siemian and the Broncos beat the Bengals blitz scheme twice on Sunday with outside double-moves for touchdowns. The first one over the top to Emmanuel Sanders came on the out and up with the second score to Demaryius Thomas on the stutter and go. Two different routes/stems, but the same exact concept --seven-man protection with front side dig routes (square-ins).That gave the Broncos and Siemian time for the double-moves to develop with the receivers winning one-on-one matchups.
