Saints trail 21-7 after a sloppy, penalty-plagued first half at Kansas City. They had seven penalties for 50 yards – most of them on offense, including a delay-of-game penalty that killed a promising drive just before halftime. The Saints also can't avoid giving up the big play. All three of the Chiefs' TDs are from 38 yards or more (including an interception return for a touchdown after a tipped pass by Drew Brees).

Darius Slay OUT with hamstring injury

It was an eventful first half for the Jets, who trail the Ravens, 16-14. Geno Smith's hard-luck history with injuries continued. He left with a second-quarter knee injury, resulting in the return of Ryan Fitzpatrick -- four days after he was benched. Fitzpatrick provided a spark, leading a touchdown drive on his first series. It never fails; the Jets' quarterback situation always provides drama. Welcome to the last 40 years.

Ravens QB Joe Flacco shows no signs of an injured shoulder, averaging 14.7 yards per completion as Baltimore leads, 16-14, at halftime. Special teams is carrying Ravens with three Justin Tucker field goals and Chris Moore's fumble recovery for TD off mishandled snap by punter.

All three Vikings turnovers have been attributable to their protection issues. They've tried moving Jake Long, T.J. Clemmings and Jeremiah Sirles around at tackle today, but they haven't been able to create a clean pocket for Sam Bradford, who's fumbled twice and thrown an interception when he was hit.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

That was a great finish by Bengals WR A.J. Green on the Hail Mary toss from Andy Dalton at the end of the first half. Even with the Browns defenders in a position to knock the ball down, Green got a hand on the pass and eventually brought it in for a TD. The Bengals take a 21-10 lead into the locker room.

Daniel Sorensen caught Kansas City's eye because of his special team skills as an undrafted rookie in 2014. But he's developing into a reliable defender and he's been one of the Chiefs' best players today as they lead the Saints 21-7 at halftime. The Chiefs are comfortable using Sorensen as a spare safety in passing situations because of his instincts and ball skills. He has a touchdown on a 48-yard interception return, a sack of Drew Brees and an open field tackle that forced a New Orleans punt.

Brandon Scherff has returned to the Redskins lineup after missing two series with a shoulder injury.

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

Cornerback Jimmie Ward has been out with a quadriceps injury since Week 3 in Seattle but is poised to return to the lineup today against Tampa Bay.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

Redskins corner Josh Norman hasn't covered Marvin Jones on every play, but it has been quite often – and it's been effective. Jones, who has been targeted 47 times this year – most on the Lions -- has yet to be targeted. Again, Norman's physical jams off the line have made a difference.

Jamison Hensley ESPN Staff Writer 

In what has been a recurring theme, Ravens K Justin Tucker hits his third FG of the game to put Baltimore ahead, 16-14, going into halftime. He's now converted 25 field goals in a row.

As he said it would happen on NFL LIVE Friday.. Mychal Kendricks and that Eagles defense are balling today

The Dolphins changed their approach to huddle and take their time on offense two weeks ago and it is helping them stay close in games. They've had scoring drives of seven and eight minutes in the first half but still trail the Bills, 10-6. Miami stalled twice in the red zone and settled for field goals, which is an area where the team has struggled this season. Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi is having a strong first half with 99 rushing yards on 12 carries. Ajayi now has 303 rushing yards in the past six quarters.

CINCINNATI — The Browns went to their sixth quarterback of the season when Cody Kessler was sidelined with a concussion. Kessler was hurt when his head hit Domata Peko's elbow as Kessler was being tackled in the second quarter. Kessler had started 9-for-11. Kevin Hogan took over; Hogan was promoted from the practice squad Oct. 11. The six Browns quarterbacks: Robert Griffin III, Josh McCown, Kessler, Terrell Pryor, Charlie Whitehorse and Hogan. No other team has had more than three players throw a pass this season. The Browns trailed 21-10 at halftime.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

Redskins receiver DeSean Jackson said he was quite happy being involved early last week. He can't say the same today. He has no catches in the first half vs. Detroit. Neither does teammate Pierre Garcon. That won't go over well with either player.

Field Yates ESPN Insider 

Wow. AJ Green hauls in an incredible 48-yard Hail Mary catch from Andy Dalton to end the half for the Bengals.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

Incredible catch by A.J. Green on a last-play-of-the-half Hail Mary from Andy Dalton. Green reached out with one hand as he fell to snag the ball and give the Bengals a 21-10 lead. Everyone knew the play was coming. The Bengals still scored.

James Walker ESPN Staff Writer 

Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi has 99 yards rushing in the first half. He has has 303 rushing yards in the past six quarters.

It's Patriots-Steelers game day. Maurkice Pouncey is here to remind you.

Katherine Terrell ESPN Staff Writer 

A.J. Green is unbelievable. He makes juggling catch in the end zone with at least three defenders draped all over him for a 48-yard Hail Mary touchdown pass by Andy Dalton. Green essentially tipped the ball to himself. The Bengals go into the half up 21-10

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

Bills safety Aaron Williams (head/neck) is officially out for the game.


WHAT A CATCH! TOUCHDOWN BENGALS! Andy Dalton heaves the hail mary and A.J. Green makes the catch after it was tipped.
