The Giants are 30th in the NFL in points scored (16.0) entering their bye week. Only the Browns and Dolphins are worse. This after Giants were 26th (19.4 LPG) last year.

After each exceeded expectations yesterday, the Rams and Cowboys improved their respective FPI ratings more than any other team this week (so far). On the other side of the coin, the Cardinals' rating dropped a massive 4.2 points, while the Colts and 49ers fell a good bit, too.

The Seahawks used Bradley McDougald as a third safety quite a bit yesterday, often matched up with Giants TE Evan Engram. His 17 (of 59) defensive snaps were more than his totals from the first five games combined.

Jets defensive snap analysis (based on 73): DL -- Leo Williams 60, Mo Wilkerson 54, Kony Ealy 33, Steve McLendon 20, Ed Stinson 11, Mike Pennel 10; LB -- Demario Davis 73, Darron Lee 60, Josh Martin 40, Jordan Jenkins 38, David Bass 29, Julian Stanford 13; DB -- Jamal Adams 73, Mo Claiborne 73, Marcus Maye 73, Buster Skrine 70, Darryl Roberts 57, Rontez Miles 8, Terrence Brooks 8. Analysis: Davis has yet to miss a snap. Impressive. A full load for Wilkerson despite no practice. Stanford spelled Lee (cramps).

Here are the Seahawks' offensive snap counts from yesterday: Thomas Rawls started at RB and got 30 snaps to Eddie Lacy's 21. Mark Glowinski (48 snaps) started at LG and played more than Ethan Pocic (34 snaps) as the two rotated there.

Jets offensive snap analysis (based on 56): RB -- Matt Forte 28, Bilal Powell 21, Eli McGuire 7, Lawrence Thomas 5; WR -- Jermaine Kearse 51, Robby Anderson 45, Jeremy Kerley 29, ArDarius Stewart 10, Chad Hansen 6; TE -- Austin Seferian-Jenkins 42, Eric Tomlinson 34. Analysis: The backfield situation is frustrating for fantasy owners because the personnel deployment is unpredictable. Powell started, but ended up with fewer snaps than Forte. Kerley' usage was down, but they more two tight-end packages than usual -- an extra blocker to deal with Miami's pass rush.

One of the interesting parts of the Patriots' win over the Falcons was the conditions in which the game was played — a fog that made it hard for some fans to see. How did it affect coaches and players?

Eli Manning was 0-of-4 on passes of 15+ yards vs Seahawks, according to ESPN Stats and Info. He was 5-of-16 for 45 yards throwing to his WRs. Hard to win that way.

"It just simply comes down to miss opportunities," Matt Ryan said, referring to third down and red zone failures in a 23-7 loss to the Patriots.

Tom Brady says the day couldn't have been much better — carving pumpkins with his kids in the afternoon and having his parents on the field before a win over the Falcons.

Julio Jones told me despite a radio report, he didn't go off on anybody on the sideline or vent toward anyone. He said he was yelling at someone to turn the heater back on.

With the Patriots turning in their best defensive performance of the season against the Falcons, there is now hope that the team can play the type of complementary game necessary to be a championship team. Up to this point, there had been big questions about the D and whether it could hold up its end of the bargain. No longer.

Injury updates: Chris Hogan has returned to the game, while LB Dont'a Hightower (shoulder) is questionable to return.

Bill Belichick often talks about the goal of playing complementary football, with the offense, defense and special teams working together, and they probably played their best 30 minutes of complementary ball to jump out to a 17-0 halftime lead over the Falcons. Now comes the next challenge: Can the Patriots play their most complete game of the year, going the full 60 minutes? The Falcons get the ball to start the second half.

49ers S Eric Reid played linebacker in Sunday's game. It's the first time he's played there though the Niners indicated a desire to get him and fellow safeties Jaquiski Tartt and Jimmie Ward on the field together more. Reid on the move: "They told me that it's the best move for the team so I'm just embracing my new role and trying my hardest to be an impact (player)," Reid said. "I'm still playing so I'm just trying to make an impact on the team, do the best I can to do that."

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan kept LB Reuben Foster from returning to the game after he aggravated a rib injury in the second half even though Foster was cleared to come back. Shanahan indicated Foster would probably be OK for next week but Foster and the Niners still needed to see how Foster would feel tomorrow. Foster indicated he will have more scans and treatment on Monday and see what the medical staff says over the next few days.

The Broncos were shut out for the first time since the 1992 season Sunday – a 21-0 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers – they've lost three of their last four games and they haven't won on the road in two tries this season. And while several players called Sunday's loss "embarrassing'' they also said they still believe, despite how it all looked Sunday, they have time to find solutions. They know that means road trips to Kansas City and Philadelphia over the next two weeks, but as running back Jamaal Charles said: "We've just got to get back to work and get it right. We have a lot of games to play – division games – and it starts next Sunday.''
