On the Rob Gronkowski offensive pass interference penalty, the talk with him and coaches in recent years has been a focus on keeping his arm in and not extending it to create separation. Looked like too much extension on the play.

Just think, only two teams have a worse record than the Giants (1-6) right now. Only the two winless teams — San Francisco and Cleveland — are worse. The Giants are in the running for Saquon Barkley or a top QB. Either would fit well for the future of the franchise.

The most encouraging thing for the Cowboys going forward would be to know they would have Ezekiel Elliott for the rest of the season, but they won't know that for sure for a week if not longer. But the play of the offensive line is the biggest reason for the Cowboys to have hope whether Elliott is carrying the ball or Alfred Morris, Darren McFadden or Rod Smith. After Elliott ran for 85 yards on 13 carries in the fourth quarter against Green Bay, the Cowboys ran 43 times for 265 yards and three touchdowns against San Francisco. If the line can continue to be as dominant as they have been in their last five quarters, the Cowboys can still be a factor in the NFC.

The Seahawks have to feel excellent about the way their defense is playing. That group has rebounded from a rough performance in Week 3 and has only allowed 33 points over the last three games. They're also starting to take the ball away with more frequency and they're getting contributions from young players like Frank Clark, Jarran Reed and Shaquill Griffin. It's been enough to carry Seattle through its slow starts on offense.

Fantasy football owners take note: The Patriots ran 11 plays on their opening drive and Dion Lewis was the running back on seven of them. James White had the other four.

The Bucs may be 2-4, but the play of rookie O.J. Howard today really added a new dimension in Dirk Koetter's play-calling and the chemistry with Jameis Winston is starting to show. Howard became just the seventh rookie tight end in the last 10 years to record a multi-touchdown game.

Several Jets players said they were disappointed with the field condition at Hard Rock Stadium, which hosted a college game on Saturday. "Pretty bad," Jermaine Kearse said. Jordan Jenkins said he tweaked an ankle because of the chewed-up grass. "It sucked," he said, quickly adding, "But it sucked for both teams."

Tom Brady's parents, Tom Sr. and Galynn, are in attendance. They were on the field pre-game as part of NFL's Crucial Catch campaign.

Ravens have opened as 3.5-point favorites for Thursday night's game against the Dolphins

The Bengals are now several games behind Pittsburgh in the AFC North but the rest of the division hasn't exactly lit things up. They aren't out of it yet. Nothing went their way against the Steelers, but they've had several encouraging performances from their young defensive players this season. The Bengals will need to regroup before facing the struggling Colts.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cowboys were as dominant as they have been all season in their 40-10 win against San Francisco. Was it the start of a run to get them back to the playoffs? The next four games against Washington, Kansas City, Atlanta and Philadelphia will very well tell the story of their season.

After five weeks of near misses, the 49ers got a harsh dose of reality in a blowout loss to the Cowboys.

Andy Dalton said his ankle was fine, but it seemed like he'd rather not discuss it. He never left the game and didn't have a boot on his foot afterward.

Dak Prescott had his 7th career game with a passing TD & a rushing TD. That's as many as Troy Aikman had during his entire Cowboys career.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

At 3-4, the Jets are a playoff long shot, but they weren't expected to be in contention. Their definition of "hope" is different than other teams; they can derive hope in seeing the development of young players, namely rookie safeties Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye and second-year linebacker Darron Lee. That's how the season should be judged -- the progress of their young talent base.

In Broncos locker room wide receiver Demaryius Thomas said quarterback Trevor Siemian "might have broken his nose." So asked Siemian as he walked to the team buses and he said "I don't know maybe," but then added "I don't think so, but my helmet came down on it pretty hard."

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

DRC said his lack of playing time was the fallout from his discipline the previous week. He accepted it.

This is the 2nd time in which Ezekiel Elliott, Dez Bryant and Dak Prescott all scored TD in the same game. The other came in Week 3 this season at the Cardinals.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Jets WR Robby Anderson threw his helmet and was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct with eight seconds left in the game. Anderson: "I was just frustrated, you know. I'm very passionate about this and I love this game. It hurts losing, especially when you're up on division games. Losing hurts, period." Coach Todd Bowles went soft on Anderson, saying he didn't see the play.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Entering Sunday, the Broncos and Colts had the 2 longest active streaks of not being shut out -- and it wasn't even close. Denver hadn't been shut out since 1992. The Colts hadn't been shut out since 1993. Both were shut out on Sunday.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Both the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers recorded shutouts Sunday. It's the first time in the Super Bowl era two teams from the same city recorded shutouts in the same week. In other words…the Giants and Jets have never posted shutouts the same week, and the Raiders and Rams never did it when both were stationed in Los Angeles.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

The Titans are 4-3, tied for first place in the AFC South, relatively healthy with two starters expected to return after the bye week. After an up-and-down first seven games, the Titans are in great position. Tennessee's potential is apparent and it starts with Marcus Mariota, who can lead them to the playoffs.

Jeremy Fowler ESPN Staff Writer 

Steelers FB Roosevelt Nix said he felt Vontaze Burfict's feet hit his helmet/face mask area on kick attempt. The refs told him they didn't see it, so he moved on.

Eric D. Williams ESPN Staff Writer 

After starting the season 0-4, the Chargers have won three straight. And at 3-4, the Bolts still remain in the postseason conversation and therefore have reason for hope nearing the midpoint of this the 2017 campaign. Getting a win on the road next week against the defending Super Bowl Champs, the New England Patriots, would push the Chargers to .500 heading into the bye week.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Ben McAdoo didn't think Paul Richardson had his foot inbounds on the joint-catch-ruled TD. He said they'll look at tape.
