Three drives, three touchdowns for the Giants. Sterling Shepard takes short pass for 67-yard score. This could be the day they end their streak of 30 straight games without scoring 30 points?

The Vikings defense with arguably the best nose tackle in the NFL in Linval Joseph is holding the Bengals to 1.8 yards per rush on six attempts. Most baffling play (outside of Andy Dalton's interception where he threw it right to Eric Kendricks) was Cincy's decision to run it on 4th-and-1, a play which it did not convert. Vikings held the Bengals to 26 total yards in the first quarter. Andy Dalton: 2-of-6 passing for 17 yards and an interception with a passer rating of 2.8.

Kapri Bibbs now has scored two touchdowns in his career, including one with Denver. The Redskins did a good job getting him in the open field with multiple play fakes, allowing him to slip outside for a wide open field off a screen pass. Bibbs is serving as the Redskins third-down back with Chris Thompson out for the season. Earlier this year, the screen was a dangerous play for Washington. Injuries to Thompson and the linemen had weakened that play.

The Panthers and Packers have not used two timeouts with 9:10 left in the first half. As well as both teams have moved the ball there has been some confusion on a few plays.

Michael DiRocco ESPN Staff Writer 

Texans in the first quarter: 2 yards on three drives, 0-for-3 on third down. Jaguars have 118 yards and Bortles is 6-for-8 for 90 yards. One incompletion was a drop and another was a throwaway.

Ravens safety Chuck Clark has passed the concussion protocol

James Walker ESPN Staff Writer 

The Dolphins missed a potential touchdown with receiver Kenny Stills getting open deep. Jay Cutler overthrew him.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Breaking: The Jets have crossed midfield.

Jamison Hensley ESPN Staff Writer 

It looks like Ravens safety Eric Weddle is getting his left ankle taped and will return to the game. Weddle has six interceptions this season, which are his most since 2011.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

The Redskins continue to struggle with their run game. It's been a combination of Samaje Perine not gaining yards after contact and blocks being missed, or not held. But Arizona entered the game fourth in yards per carry allowed. It wasn't an ideal matchup for Washington, not with a makeshift offensive line.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

The Giants scored more points in the first quarter (13) than they did in the entire game of Eli Manning's 3 previous starts.

Jamison Hensley ESPN Staff Writer 

Ravens safety Eric Weddle comes up limping after his team-leading sixth interception. It looks like he's favoring his right leg.

Patrick Robinson jawing with coaches on the sidelines after (seemingly) being torched by a sluggo route for that second Giants touchdown.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

The way things are going, the Jets could get blown out for the second week in a row. You get the feeling the Saints are just toying with them. Drew Brees can do anything he wants, but he's slicing up the Jets' D with short passes to his backs.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Goal line TD run for Mark Ingram. That gives Ingram 85 total yards in the first quarter on eight touches.

Sarah Barshop ESPN Staff Writer 

On the Texans' first two drives, they had more penalties (three) than yards (zero). Houston is struggling on offense against this excellent Jacksonville defense.

Mike Triplett ESPN Staff Writer 

Sean Payton's aggressive nature pays off again as they convert a fourth-and-2 from the Jets' 7-yard line with a WR screen to Michael Thomas. RB Mark Ingram followed with a 1-yard TD run to give the Saints a 10-0 lead in the first quarter. The Saints are now 11-of-13 on fourth-down conversions this season, per ESPN Stats and Information. The 84.6 conversion percentage is by far the best in the NFL (Jaguars are 2nd at 72.7).

Tom Brady walks off Heinz Field after going through his pre-game routine of assessing field conditions and how the weather might be a factor.

Michael DiRocco ESPN Staff Writer 

With Marqise Lee in the locker room getting treatment for his injured right ankle, the Jaguars are thin at receiver. Keelan Cole, Dede Westbrook and Jaydon Mickens entered Sunday with a combined 46 career catches. Allen Hurns (ankle) and Larry Pinkard (concussion) were inactive.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers rookie back Christian McCaffrey has 71 catches this season. Six-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Randy Moss had 69 in his rookie year for Minnesota. Perspective.

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

The Bills allowed a 31-yard run by Kenyan Drake but the held to force a Dolphins field goal late in the first quarter Sunday. Buffalo's red zone defense has tightened up in recent weeks, allowing touchdowns on 42 percent of opponent trips since Week 13. It allowed opponents to convert 54 percent of trips through Week 12.

Aaron Rodgers playing QB like a great point guard... up-tempo distribution of the football

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Aaron Rodgers playing like he never missed a game, much less seven. Marches through Carolina's defense to knot the score at 7-7. Could be an old-fashioned shootout here today.
