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.

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.

A Pennsylvania accountant, who previously filed for the trademark to "Wentz Wagon," has now filed for "WentzDay."

Took all kinds of grief for saying Carson Wentz might be the best rookie QB I've seen in 14 years of tape breakdowns.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

The Eagles used underneath smash routes (with an inside clear-out) on the Carson Wentz TD pass to Jordan Matthews. With the middle of the field open -- and Matthews working away from the defender's leverage -- Wentz could identify the target and get the ball out. Smart call in the red zone. Eagles jump to a 10-0 lead on the Steelers in the second quarter.

Jeremy Fowler ESPN Staff Writer 

Wentz things are happening again. Steelers getting minimal pressure on the rookie. He's sitting back and waiting for guys to get open.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Will Hayes is back in the game, but DT Michael Brockers walked off the field gingerly. Musical chairs on the defensive line today.

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

Bucs safety Chris Conte recovered a fumble that Lavonte David knocked out of Kenny Britt's hands. Conte told me this week that they were so eager to get back out onto the field after the Arizona game. "That wasn't the team that we are." Bucs leading 13-10 with 8:46 to go in the first half. Approaching Rams territory right now.

Dan Graziano ESPN Staff Writer 

The Eagles' offense appears designed for Carson Wentz's comfort (even though it was actually designed for Sam Bradford's). So many quick-hit options near the line of scrimmage, and he has clear command of them. Spreading Steelers' defense out for an early 10-0 lead here in Philly.


TOUCHDOWN EAGLES! Carson Wentz finds Jordan Matthews for the TD to give Eagles a 10-0 lead.

KC Joyner @KCJoynerTFS

Said it earlier, saying it again - Carson Wentz may be the best rookie QB I've seen in 14 years of breaking down games.

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

The good news for the 49ers is they continue to get takeaways, coming up with a fumble at Seattle's 30. The bad news is takeaways seem to be the only way they can generate points and they settled for a field goal after the fumble recovery. Four of San Francisco's five scoring drives last week came after a turnover. Still have to find ways to get drives without the defense doing most of the work.

Paul Kuharsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Marcus Mariota said he felt good about the last series. "Sometimes the ball just doesn't bounce your way."

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Odell Beckham said he was given special warning before game. Surprised he wasn't kicked out for offensive PI call in fourth quarter.
