The Redskins placed long snapper Nick Sundberg on injured reserve because of a bad back injury and signed long snapper Andrew East. They also added tight end Matt Flanagan and corner Josh Holsey to the roster. They cut running back Kapri Bibbs and defensive end Marcus Smith.

DeAndre Hopkins' huge game also made the race for 2018's top-scoring PPR wide receiver even more competitive: 292.3 Tyreek Hill (14 G) 287.4 Hopkins (14) 283.6 Davante Adams (13) 283.4 Adam Thielen (13) 267.8 Michael Thomas (13) 264.3 Antonio Brown (13) 264.1 Julio Jones (13)

Jets CB Mo Claiborne took issue with the third-down holding penalty that set up the Texans' game-winning TD: "This is how I feed my family and when you make calls like that, you mess that up for me."

DeAndre Hopkins' 39.0 PPR fantasy points were his second most in 93 career NFL games (44.8, 2014 Week 13). He now has 287.4 points through 14 games in 2018, and needs 43.7 points in his final two games to match his season best of 331.1, set in 2015.

Baker Mayfield's touchdown pass was his 20th of the season; he's the first Browns player with 20 in a season since Derek Anderson in 2007, per ESPN Stats and Information.

This game could not have started better for the Browns. The defense forced a punt after negative plays meant Denver lost 13 on three plays, then the offense followed with a a strong throw by Baker Mayfield and stronger catch by Breshad Perriman for 31-yard TD on third down. Denver had three plays and punted, the Browns four and a touchdown.

The Jets lost another game, but this was a silver-lining defeat because QB Sam Darnold was terrific. He continued to improve, and that provides hope.

The Broncos' inactives Saturday night included safety Su'a Cravens, who they acquired in a trade with the Redskins last spring, Shane Ray, whose contract year continues to go awry and DeMarcus Walker, a former second-round pick who continues to be unable to crack the defensive line rotation. Cravens had two penalties in the loss to the 49ers last Sunday and Ray has one sack this season in 254 snaps -- 23.1 per game. Walker has been active for just three games this season.

No surprises among Browns inactives. The full list: QB Drew Stanton, CB Denzel Ward and Phillip Gaines, OL Austin Corbett and Desmond Harrison, and DL Chad Thomas and Carl Davis.

Broncos inactives: LB Shaquil Barrett, S Su'a Cravens, G Nico Faleh, CB Chris Harris Jr., LB Shane Ray, DE DeMarcus Walker, CB Isaac Yiadom.

The under-manned Jets have extended the Texans into the fourth quarter. With Sam Darnold providing the spark, they trail, 16-15. They should be ahead by a point, but Jason Myers has developed a case of the PAT yips — two killer misses. It would be a shame if they lose because of Myers, who was having a Pro Bowl-caliber season.

Mike Reiss ESPN Staff Writer 

Patriots LB Elandon Roberts (thigh) has been added to the injury report Saturday. He is questionable. Roberts, who plays on early downs and often comes off the field in passing situations, is the only player on the team's injury report.

The Jets may end up losing this game — they're down at halftime, 16-9 — but they have to be encouraged by Sam Darnold. The rookie has done a terrific job of managing the game. You see signs of growth: Movement in the pocket. Eyes downfield at all times. Poise under pressure. For the second week in a row, he connected with Robby Anderson for an off-script touchdown.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jets played a solid first quarter — 3-3 — but they will have to do a better job against WR DeAndre Hopkins (three catches for 56 yards). The Jets are playing him straight up, mixing man and zone. Why not use Trumaine Johnson as a shadow? Isn't this why they gave him a $34 million guarantee?
