Rams kicker Sam Ficken is warming up. Ficken replaces Greg Zuerlein, who is sidelined because of a groin injury. Sean McVay said strategy might shift in Zuerlein's absence, but they're confident in Ficken.

For all you Calvin Ridley fans following at home, the record (1950 forward) for PPR fantasy points in a game by a rookie wide receiver is 41.7 by Anquan Boldin in 2003 Week 1.

Football fans in Nigeria have somebody to cheer for. Panthers defensive end Efe Obada, in his first active game, gets an interception off a tipped pass. He also has a quarterback hit. There's a good reason the Panthers kept him on the 53-man roster.

Tim McManus ESPN Staff Writer 

Carson Wentz makes his first big mistake, throwing an ill-advised pass to Zach Ertz that was picked by LB Anthony Walker in the third quarter. Leads to a Colts field goal.

Vaughn McClure ESPN Staff Writer 

Falcons rookie first round draft pick Calvin Ridley has three touchdown receptions today. Julio Jones has three touchdowns all of last season.

Lindsey Thiry ESPN 

A warm welcome for the Chargers at the Coliseum. Two planes flying overhead are pulling banners that read, "Go back to San Diego, Chargers! LA doesn't want you!" and "NFL listen to Ice Cube, Chargers don't belong in LA!"

Turron Davenport ESPN 

Blaine Gabbert (concussion) and Adoree Jackson (concussion) are both ruled out.

Katherine Terrell ESPN Staff Writer 

AJ Green has been downgraded to questionable with a groin injury.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey topped 100 yards rushing for the first time in his career on his first carry of the second half. His career high was 66 yards rushing last year against Atlanta. He now has 130 yards on 14 carries. .

Turron Davenport ESPN 

Mariota is in a groove now. Has the Titans offense moving with a series of quick passes.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

Dolphins have been outplayed in first half, but their red zone defense (10 points in 3 trips) has kept them within striking distance. It's 10-7 Raiders at halftime. Miami is being outgained 228 yards (on 34 plays) to 126 yards (on 22!! plays). Penalties (5 for 46 yards) and a lack of a running game (8 carries for 14!! yards) have hurt the Dolphins.

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

The Bills shocked the Vikings by opening a 27-0 point halftime lead on the road Sunday despite closing as 17-point underdogs to Minnesota. The Vikings gained only 46 first-half yards, the fewest first-half yards allowed by Buffalo since Cleveland had 2 against them in 2004. Josh Allen has capitalized on the defense's success in his first road start by rushing for two touchdowns and throwing for a third. A win by Buffalo would be the first by at least a 17-point underdog since the Redskins beat the Cowboys in 1995 as 17.5-point underdogs.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

The Packers couldn't contain Adrian Peterson (12 carries for 87 yards) and couldn't cover Redskins tight ends Vernon Davis (two catches for 70 yards) and Jordan Reed (four for 65). Combine that with Aaron Rodgers not being quite as sharp as he was last week, and the Packers are in a 28-10 halftime hole.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

The Redskins have done almost everything they want offensively against Green Bay, with 323 total yards and a 28-10 halftime lead. They've used play-action to set up big plays or score touchdowns. They've taken advantage of man coverage and used big runs to set up other plays. Adrian Peterson has rushed for 87 yards while Alex Smith has completed 10-of-15 passes for 214 yards and two touchdowns.

Bill Barnwell @billbarnwell

Chiefs need three touchdowns in the second half to set an NFL record for most touchdowns over the first three games of a season.

Field Yates @FieldYates

Patrick Mahomes has 13 TD passes in 10 quarters. Marcus Mariota and Jacoby Brissett each threw 13 TD passes in 15 games last season.
