In Broncos locker room wide receiver Demaryius Thomas said quarterback Trevor Siemian "might have broken his nose." So asked Siemian as he walked to the team buses and he said "I don't know maybe," but then added "I don't think so, but my helmet came down on it pretty hard."

DRC said his lack of playing time was the fallout from his discipline the previous week. He accepted it.

This is the 2nd time in which Ezekiel Elliott, Dez Bryant and Dak Prescott all scored TD in the same game. The other came in Week 3 this season at the Cardinals.

Jets WR Robby Anderson threw his helmet and was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct with eight seconds left in the game. Anderson: "I was just frustrated, you know. I'm very passionate about this and I love this game. It hurts losing, especially when you're up on division games. Losing hurts, period." Coach Todd Bowles went soft on Anderson, saying he didn't see the play.

Entering Sunday, the Broncos and Colts had the 2 longest active streaks of not being shut out -- and it wasn't even close. Denver hadn't been shut out since 1992. The Colts hadn't been shut out since 1993. Both were shut out on Sunday.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Both the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers recorded shutouts Sunday. It's the first time in the Super Bowl era two teams from the same city recorded shutouts in the same week. In other words…the Giants and Jets have never posted shutouts the same week, and the Raiders and Rams never did it when both were stationed in Los Angeles.

The Titans are 4-3, tied for first place in the AFC South, relatively healthy with two starters expected to return after the bye week. After an up-and-down first seven games, the Titans are in great position. Tennessee's potential is apparent and it starts with Marcus Mariota, who can lead them to the playoffs.

Steelers FB Roosevelt Nix said he felt Vontaze Burfict's feet hit his helmet/face mask area on kick attempt. The refs told him they didn't see it, so he moved on.

After starting the season 0-4, the Chargers have won three straight. And at 3-4, the Bolts still remain in the postseason conversation and therefore have reason for hope nearing the midpoint of this the 2017 campaign. Getting a win on the road next week against the defending Super Bowl Champs, the New England Patriots, would push the Chargers to .500 heading into the bye week.

Ben McAdoo didn't think Paul Richardson had his foot inbounds on the joint-catch-ruled TD. He said they'll look at tape.

Even on bad teams, fantasy value can be found. Evan Engram now has 53 targets, which is the most that any rookie tight end has had through seven team games since 1992 (the earliest season for which target data is available).

The Seahawks have to feel excellent about the way their defense is playing. That group has only allowed 36 points over the last three games and is starting to take the ball away with more frequency. It's been enough to carry Seattle through its slow starts on offense.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

The Seahawks' offense made a bunch of mistakes early — dropped passes, penalties, poor execution in the red zone — but found its groove in the second half while their defense stood tall the whole time. That's been a winning formula for the Seahawks this season and it was again in their win over the Giants.

The Vikings are one step closer to finishing the second quarter of the season at 4-0, thanks in large part to their schedule. Minnesota plays the winless Browns in London next Sunday and has a bye in Week 9. Being 6-2 would be a huge bonus for the Vikings to control their own destiny in the second half. It also doesn't hurt that they have the only player to log a sack in seven straight games this season (Everson Griffen) and the No. 3 run defense in the NFL, a unit that has played a major part in securing five wins.

Here are the 200 members of the military who are at Gillette Stadium because players and coaches donated their tickets to them as a show of their appreciation. Long snapper Joe Cardona, who is on active duty in the Navy, spearheaded the effort.

Bengals fall to 2-4 after an ugly loss to the Steelers, and their offensive woes were on full display. Bengals couldn't move the ball in the second half, whether it was Andy Dalton turning the ball over or the lack of run game. The defense gave up a lot of big plays, and it was an ugly game overall.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Eli Manning said Giants would have to hit on more plays in the passing game eventually. It came back to bite them vs. Seahawks. Couldn't do it. They had 178 yards total and 134 yards passing in Sunday's 24-7 loss.

Jamison Hensley ESPN Staff Writer 

Ravens (3-4) fall two games behind the Steelers (5-2), who beat the Bengals on Sunday. It's technically a bigger margin than that, considering Baltimore has already lost to Pittsburgh this season.

Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer 

The Colts don't have their starting quarterback Andrew Luck. Chuck Pagano likely has a maximum of just nine games remaining as coach of the team. Their offensive line can't block. Their defense can't stop anybody. Receiver T.Y. Hilton is pointing fingers at others. But if there's a positive through this growing list of problems, the more the Colts lose, the better position they'll be in for a high draft pick, which will help the rebuilding process for general manager Chris Ballard, next spring.

Dak Prescott has set new career highs in terms of fantasy points in back-to-back weeks, and he has 425.12 in his 22 career games. Cam Newton (472.72), Daunte Culpepper (443.96), Kurt Warner (442.16) and Robert Griffin III (430.62) are the only quarterbacks in history to score more through that many career contests.

Titans go into bye week with problems to fix, offensive consistency is at the forefront.

Sean Payton wasn't interested in making any sweeping statements about his team after the Saints' first four-game win streak since 2013. But he was clearly impressed by the resilience they showed after falling behind 14-7 on a cold, wet, sloppy afternoon in Lambeau Field on Sunday – and sees signs that this team could be different from the past three 7-9 seasons. “We very easily could've lost a game like this with some of the mistakes,” Payton said. “But there's a little bit of resiliency that I'm proud of – especially in the second half of this game.”

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

Ezekiel Elliott's 40.9 PPR fantasy points matched his career high (2016 Week 10), and they give him 454.0 in 21 career games. Since 1950, that's the sixth-most by any player through 21 games.
