"When you pay Andrew what we did, it's going to take some time to build on the other side of the ball," said Colts GM Ryan Grigson, who has had plenty of time and not much to show for it in Indy.

The 49ers are giving up an average of 174.5 rushing yards per game, the most in all of the NFL, and the Bucs could not convert on third-and-2 or fourth-and-1 on their first possession.

Julio Jones had 3 catches for 43 yards on that drive, but Chargers held Falcons to Matt Bryant 42-yard FG. That's a win for San Diego's defense. Chargers lead 7-3.

The Bills' decision to start LeSean McCoy should be questioned after Buffalo collapsed Sunday in Miami, losing 28-23 after leading 17-6 late in the third quarter. McCoy gained only 11 yards on eight carries before his hamstring injury kept him on the bench for much of the second half. Buffalo's defense allowed 214 rushing yards to Jay Ajayi while the Bills weren't able to sustain offensive drives without an effective running game.

Blake Bortles came into Week 7 with a league-high 3374 passing yards since 2014 while trailing by at least 10 points. That works out to 39 percent of his career passing yards. Derek Carr was at 24 percent, by the way (2215 of 8865).

Sam Bradford was sacked six times and hit 11 in the Eagles' 21-10 win over the Vikings. Credit defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz for getting out of his comfort zone and dialing up a number of blitzes that got home against a patchwork offensive line.

Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick believes he should start next week. He feels the coach, GM and owner lost confidence in him, leading to his benching. He believes his teammates still has confidence in him.

The Dolphins pick up a big win over the Bills, 28-25, to improve to 3-4. Running back Jay Ajayi became the fourth player in the Super Bowl era to post back-to-back 200-yard games. Miami will have two weeks to rest and prepare for the New York Jets.

Eagles beat Vikings 21-10 as there are no more undefeated NFL teams. The ViewFromVegas is the Eagles did it as 3-point home underdogs and +130 on the money line. It also snapped the Vikings' 10-game ATS streak dating back to last season.

Ben Goessling ESPN Staff Writer 

The 1972 Miami Dolphins can raise a glass once again. There are no more undefeated teams in the NFL, after the Vikings' 21-10 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, and a day where Sam Bradford was stripped of the ball four times left the Vikings with plenty to fix in the next week. Their offensive line, which has been an issue at various points since 2014, was a culprit again on Sunday, and a team that hadn't turned the ball over all season lost it four times on Sunday. The Vikings will have eight days to regroup before a Monday night game in Chicago.
