Auto Update: On

In back-to-back years, Steelers said they wanted to disrupt Gronk off the line. And here goes Gronk again, untouched off the line. That's 93 yards and a score for the Patriots tight end, who has eight career touchdowns against Pittsburgh.

The following Seahawks are inactive for tonight's game: RB C.J. Spiller, S Kam Chancellor, RB Thomas Rawls, LB Kevin Pierre-Louis, OL Rees Odhiambo, TE Luke Willson and DL Quinton Jefferson. That means rookie RB C.J. Prosise will play and could see snaps on third down.

Mike Tomlin's decision to kick there rather than go for it on fourth-and-three is a reminder that, despite his propensity to be aggressive at times, he does not coach with a classic analytic bent. Tomlin goes for two when he thinks his offense is dominating, and the same is true for fourth downs. He doesn't trust Landry Jones as much as Ben Roethlisberger, clearly, even given the difficulty of a 54-yard field goal.

Cardinals inactives: WR John Brown, CB Brandon Williams, LB Gabe Martin, G Cole Toner, DT Olsen Pierre, DT Xavier Williams, DT Ed Stinson.

Matt Ryan went over 200 passing yards for the 46th consecutive game to set a new NFL record. Ryan surpassed Dan Fouts. But then Ryan threw a key interception with his team leading, 30-27.

Russell Wilson and Kurt Warner catch up on the field before tonight's Seahawks-Cardinals game. With a win tonight, Wilson and the Seahawks would have a 2.5-game lead in the NFC West.

The Falcons have now allowed at least 26 points in six of their seven games this season. They entered the day ranked No. 27 in scoring defense and as a result they haven't been able to put away the Chargers in this game. It's 30-27 with just under five minutes remaining.

Seahawks CB Richard Sherman out on the field warming up in advance of tonight's game against the Cardinals. This is the first time all year that Seattle goes into a game as an underdog.

Former Cardinals QB Kurt Warner stops to chat with Seahawks QB Russell Wilson about 90 minutes before Sunday night's game.

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

The 49ers scored their first points of the second half, a Phil Dawson field goal with 8:08 to play to trim Tampa Bay's lead to 27-17. Given how things have gone since the first quarter, it's hard to imagine the defense getting the needed stops or the offense getting the points needed to put together a comeback, let alone both of those happening in tandem.

Mike Reiss ESPN Staff Writer 

With 11:44 remaining in the fourth quarter, Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount has 109 yards on 19 carries and 2 TDs. Blount is playing his first game in Pittsburgh since the 2014 season when he was a member of the Steelers. His time with the team ended abruptly as he walked off the field before one game ended.

Field Yates @FieldYates

Falcons QB Matt Ryan has now thrown for 200 or more passing yards in 46 straight regular season games, setting an NFL record.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Melvin Gordon scored his third touchdown of the day on a blown coverage from the Falcons in the deep red zone. Quick throw to the flat from Phillip Rivers. But that shouldn't happen given Gordon's pre-snap alignment. When the RB moves to a wider alignment in the backfield (on the outside leg of the tackle), it should be an automatic alert to the flat route. Chargers are now down 30-27 in the fourth quarter.

Bill Barnwell @billbarnwell

Steelers asking a lot of Robert Golden to get to Gronk at LOS and follow in man, he can't, clear out routes on the outside, big play.

Including two of his three touchdowns today, Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston has seven pass touchdowns under duress this season, the most of any quarterback in the NFL, per ESPN Stats & Info.

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston is now 5 of 11 targeting Mike Evans in the end zone this season. He was 2 of 15 last year, per ESPN Stats & Info. They've worked to improve their chemistry and it's showing, especially without Vincent Jackson. Mike Evans is playing like a true No. 1 receiver.
