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.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

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.

Dak Prescott has now won 2 games filling in for Tony Romo. Twice as many as every other QB filling in for Romo over the previous 5 seasons.

Chargers' LB Manti Te'o tore his Achilles and will require surgery, per source. Out for season.

Dan Graziano ESPN Staff Writer 

As he and the team feared last night, Chargers LB Mantei Te'o has a torn Achilles and will require surgery, per source.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Rookie safety Darian Thompson (foot) should be fine. It's not the dreaded Lisfranc injury. Should be back in couple weeks. Giants missed him. Allowed 4 plays of 20+ after none in first two weeks.

Sunday was the first time in the last 3 seasons that Antonio Brown had a 10 catch day and The Steelers lost. Had been 9-0 going back to 2014

With five defensive regulars out, the Packers used 12 players on defense who were either rookies or second-year players, yet they still held the Lions to just 50 yards rushing. Here's the full snap-count list on defense from Sunday's 34-27 win.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Davante Adams' playing time was cut significantly against the Lions. He played only 46 percent of the snaps after seeing the field for 84 percent in the first two weeks combined. Yet his production (two catches for 23 yards, one TD) was about the same. Trevor Davis (12 snaps), Aaron Ripkowski (11 before his back injury) and the tight ends saw their snap counts spike. However, Jared Abbrederis didn't play a single snap on offense. Here's the full-snap count list on offense from Sunday's 34-27 win.
