Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham is putting together a monster first half for fantasy owners. Graham already has 100 yards receiving on six receptions (seven targets) and a touchdown. Seahawks are up 21-3 on the 49ers late in the second quarter.

Carson Wentz showed on that 10-yard run that he can beat you with his feet as well, but Eagles are hesitant to make it a part of the game plan to start. "He needs to prove that he's gotten the message [about not taking unnecessary hits] so that we can give him that responsibility and he can protect himself," offensive coordinator Frank Reich said this week.

Jimmy Graham has 100 yards receiving, and it's not yet halftime. He's only had one other 100-yard receiving game as a Seahawk. Graham continues a remarkable comeback story after suffering a ruptured patellar tendon injury last November.

What a play by Jimmy Graham. That wasn't a 50-50 ball. That was a 40-60 ball. Great play by Graham.

Starting to think Jimmy Graham wasn't actually the problem with the Seahawks' offense last year.

Terrelle Pryor hard on himself despite 200 yards in total offense, upset about the couple plays he said he missed: "I'm very dissatisfied with myself."

Jets rookie Jalin Marshall might think he's hot stuff, but he has ball-security issues. Just fumbled on a kickoff, returned for a Chiefs TD. Shades of Joe McKnight in the Butt Fumble game.

Jameis Winston rolled out on a bootleg to hit Cameron Brate for a 3-yard touchdown to make it 20-10 Bucs with 6:03 to go in the half. Brate had a 20-yard catch-and-run on third-and-14 to set that up. Winston and Brate stayed late after practice Friday for extra red zone work. It paid off.

Todd Gurley might have been seeing 15 guys on that play. 3rd and 1, he's stuffed for no gain. 10 carries, 29 yards thus far.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

Redskins corner Josh Norman said officials talked to him before the game. Norman said they told him something to the effect of "we're not going to make a mockery of the game."

One year ago, Carson Wentz was getting ready to face South Dakota State. He would pass for 183 yards and one TD in that game, Wentz has 133 yards and a TD against the Steelers so far today. What's so hard about this NFL stuff?

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

49ers CB Jimmie Ward left the game with a quadriceps injury. He will not return.

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce is producing vs. the Jets on underneath crossing concepts. Those are staples in Andy Reid's west coast system. These are two-level reads (called Hi-Lo schemes) for quarterback Alex Smith.

How good are the 3-0 Baltimore Ravens?

The Carolina Panthers wanted to make the city of Charlotte feel good on Sunday. Instead they made themselves feel bad with. 22-10 loss to Minnesota.

After that 41-yard contested catch downfield, Sammie Coates averaging 38.8 yards per catch on the year.

Bucs running back Charles Sims told me this week that he's bothered by people thinking he's not capable of plowing between the tackles. "Everyone says that," he said. He told me he believes he is though. Looks like he was right. He showed he can handle short-yardage and run inside on that touchdown.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Another read-option by Jameis Winston, another touchdown. Troy Hill and Josh Forrest, two guys relatively unfamiliar with Gregg Williams' defense, seemed to have miscommunicated on that play.

Jimmy Graham now has four catches for 57 yards and a TD on five targets. Doug Baldwin has three grabs for 105 yards. And Russell Wilson is 12-for-15 for 190 yards and a score. The Seahawks' offense has exploded for three touchdowns on five possessions so far in the first half.

NFL underdogs went 5-2-1 against the spread in the early games with four outright upsets (DEN, BUF, WAS, MIN). The push was the Ravens beating the Jaguars 19-17 after closing as 2-point road favorites. Overs went 5-3 but are just 5-4 for the week as the Thursday night game stayed under (there was no fave or dog in that game as it closed pick 'em.
