RBBC alert! Derrick Henry (40) outsnapped DeMarco Murray (38). But Henry (20 for 145 yards, TD) and Murray (16 for 87 yards, TD) both got plenty of touches. Great recipe for Titans offensive success going forward. And a reminder that every Taywan Taylor snap is a good one.

The Panthers sign veteran linebacker Andrew Gachkar, in his seventh year out of Missouri. Could be insurance for Luke Kuechly, who remains in the concussion protocol.

Browns CB Jason McCourty instantly knew Deshaun Watson "is going to be really good," changed Texans offense. Compared his value to Andrew Luck, Marcus Mariota.

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

Lions punter Sam Martin is returning to practice. He has been on the NFI list. It's possible Martin could return for Week 8 against Pittsburgh. Jeff Locke has been handling punting in his absence.

David Purdum ESPN Staff Writer 

The NCAA, NFL, NBA, NHL and Major League Baseball on Monday filed a 71-page brief opposing New Jersey's attempt to legalize sports betting. The U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the case Dec. 4.

Steelers jump to No. 4 in ESPN's NFL power rankings. Pittsburgh moves up six spots from the previous week, the most significant jump among teams in the top 10.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Middle linebacker Luke Kuechly remains in the concussion protocol as the Panthers return from a three-day break. They practice later this morning, so it'll be interesting to see if Kuechly is on the field -- and if he is how limited he is. Before a player can be cleared from the protocol he has to resume practicing with the team with no limitations and be cleared by an independent physician.

Panthers decision to release quarterback Brad Kaaya, per Adam Schefter, shouldn't come as a surprise. They had four on the active roster after promoting Garrett Gilbert from the practice squad. Carolina is trying to develop a third quarterback for the future behind Cam Newton and Derek Anderson. Gilbert apparently is showing more promise.

A group of 10-12 NFL players, commissioner Roger Goodell and select owners will meet at 10 am ET today at NFL offices on Park Avenue, ahead of the scheduled owners meeting that begins at a downtown hotel at 1 pm ET. According to sources, there is no plan for a discussion at this player/owner meeting on a potential rule change regarding the national anthem at games. That's a topic the owners are expected to address on their own later in the day. Players are hoping to continue their discussions with owners about specific ways the league and teams plan to help the players with their social and community causes. One source told me, "The best outcome would be to give players a reason NOT to kneel," meaning that once the players see evidence of positive change arising from their protests, they would know they had the desired effect.

A special MNF second half from Marcus Mariota, Titans D could lift Titans further than one game.

The Colts season-long trend of poor play in the second half continued when they were outscored 27-9 by Tennessee in their loss on Monday

Taylor Lewan hope in Derrick Henry's media scrum after the RB's big day and says, "Derrick Henry, G.O.A.T."

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

Titans ran "slant 35 deuce" four times in a row to DeMarco Murray on 15-play go-ahead TD drive. Big to punch it in after red zone struggles.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Really impressed with Titans QB Marcus Mariota tonight. Clearly limited by that hamstring injury, Tennessee took out the boot and sprint passes in the game plan. All pocket throws. And Mariota still finished with 306 yards passing (23-of-32) with one touchdown and one interception.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

Derrick Henry with the exclamation point. One finally pops. Titans are going to end the 11-game losing streak against the Colts.

Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer 

Colts RB Robert Turbin is headed straight to the locker room after getting injured on a 9-yard reception.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Play-action with a deep corner route from Titans WR Taywan Taylor on the TD. That's tough on any two-deep coverage if the safety doesn't stay on top of the route. And with no help from the CB underneath, QB Marcus Mariota had a clear window to throw that ball.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

Eric Decker also having his best day as a Titan: seven catches for 88 yards and a few huge first downs.

Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer 

The consistent lack of a pass rush is beating the Colts again. Marcus Mariota, who is shying away from running with the ball, has all the time he needs in the pocket. He threw an easy 58-yard touchdown pass to Taywan Taylor to put Tennessee back up 29-22 with 5:29 left in the game.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Physical drive from the Titans. And smart play-calling inside the deep red zone. Forget the gadget plays. Go straight downhill with DeMarco Murray for the TD to take the lead.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

That was a franchise QB drive for Marcus Mariota. He's clearly limited with the hammy, made some great clutch throws and got a huge go-ahead TD.

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

With a short week before the Raiders home game against the Chiefs Thursday night, three linebackers were on Oakland's injury report on Monday. All the more reason, then, for NaVorro Bowman to get up to speed and suit up.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

Avery Williamson with a great forced fumble but Titans waste it with poor red zone offense. It's been a story all game, 3 instead of 7.

Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer 

The Colts have taken a bend, but don't break approach on defense so far. They've held the Titans to five field goals tonight. They should be glad about giving up only three points on that last series after Jack Doyle's fumble in Indy's territory.
