Ravens kicker Justin Tucker hits from 52 yards in Miami. He's made all four field-goal attempts this preseason, including two from beyond 50. Tucker has missed a handful of tries in practice, but the Ravens have repeatedly talked about their continued faith in him.

Saints center Max Unger officially passed his physical, so he can come off the PUP list and begin practicing. Unger, who had foot surgery in the spring, has been in pads this week doing some individual work off to the side, and Sean Payton said he is on target to play in the third or fourth preseason game. That's huge because Unger is one of the team's most valuable players and leaders, and the offensive line is already down a man with left tackle Terron Armstead expected to miss about half the season with a shoulder injury.

Anti-Kaepernick fans say they DON'T watch NFL, as protest. Pro-Kaepernick fans say they WON'T watch NFL, as protest. Interesting times.

Ravens allow first touchdown of the preseason (after giving up three points in five quarters), but they pulled most of their starters before it. The first-team defense held the Dolphins to 44 yards in three drives. Baltimore limited Miami to nine yards rushing and stopped the Dolphins on three of four third downs.

Eagles cornerback Ronald Darby is putting on a show against his old team. Acquired from the Bills last week for receiver Jordan Matthews and a third-round pick, Darby intercepted Tyrod Taylor in the first quarter and weaved his way for a 48-yard return. He almost had another pick earlier in the quarter, too. A nice early return on the Eagles' investment.

Joe Flacco won't play at all this preseason and I don't know how the Ravens don't view Ryan Mallett as a major potential weakness.

Jamison Hensley ESPN Staff Writer 

Ryan Mallett, who's been picked off plenty in training camp, throws his first interception of the preseason. His timing on the deep pass to Quincy Adeboyejo seemed off. Mallett has struggled to get the ball downfield. In three preseason quarters, his longest completion is 11 yards.

Tyrod Taylor's rough night against Eagles continues as he's intercepted by former Bills CB Ronald Darby on Buffalo's fourth possession. Taylor was forced out of the pocket by pressure allowed by rookie RT Dion Dawkins, then underthrew Anquan Boldin down the field. Taylor is now 3-of-8 for 16 yards, 2 interceptions and a 6.2 QB rating.

Slow start for Tyrod Taylor in Philly on Thursday night. Through three possessions, he is 3-of-7 passing for 16 yards and a 10.7 QB rating. Taylor was intercepted on his first pass, which was tipped by a blitzing defensive back. Taylor's accuracy and decision making is not on point, but he isn't getting much help from his O-line, especially LT Seantrel Henderson and RG Vlad Ducasse.

Ravens QB Ryan Mallett is connecting on more passes in the second preseason game, but he still isn't pushing the ball downfield. He averaged 3.2 yards per attempt in the opener, and he threw short tonight on third-and-13. Mallett is 3 of 5 for 31 yards after two series in Miami.

New Dolphins QB Jay Cutler's day is done. He played two series and completed 3 of 6 passes for 24 yards. Cutler has a passer rating of 60.4.

Jamison Hensley ESPN Staff Writer 

Ravens starting defense has forced three-and-out on three of its four drives this preseason. Baltimore has limited Jay Cutler and the Dolphins to 26 yards on two series.

James Walker ESPN Staff Writer 

Dolphins CB Byron Maxwell forced two fumbles already in the first quarter. But the Ravens recovered both.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

Chicago Bears guard Kyle Long is back with team but not practicing after missing Wednesday's workout to have his right ankle re-examined.

Dolphins QB Jay Cutler's second drive results in a punt. But Cutler throws a nice completion to WR DeVante Parker for 16 yards on the drive.

Overheard at camp: "Nothing." – Cardinals coach Bruce Arians on what he liked about the doctor-ordered vegan diet he was on for 27 days.

Josh Weinfuss ESPN Staff Writer 

Today's rookie report: The two offensive linemen drafted by the Cardinals – guard Dorian Johnson in the fourth round and tackle Will Holden in the fifth – both held up quite well in 11-on-11. They were blocking consistently for quarterback Blaine Gabbert, holding off a pass rush to give him time to throw.

Josh Weinfuss ESPN Staff Writer 

Best play of the day: Cornerback Justin Bethel intercepted quarterback Drew Stanton during 7-on-7 on a pass intended for Larry Fitzgerald. The throw was made into double coverage and Bethel came across the middle to make the interception while barely avoiding a collision.

Josh Weinfuss ESPN Staff Writer 

Today's injury update: There were no new injuries on Thursday.

James Walker ESPN Staff Writer 

Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi's day might be done. He's being replaced by RB Damien Williams.

In an apparent sign of support for his anthem protest, Eagles defensive end Chris Long put his hand on the back of safety Malcolm Jenkins for the entire rendition of the "Star-Spangled Banner" prior to Thursday's preseason game against the Buffalo Bills, then hugged him afterwards. A Charlottesville, Virginia native, Long has been outspoken about the recent events, calling the violent protestors' actions "despicable."
