Jaguars CB AJ Bouye on the anthem protest: "I'm not going to lie, I was p****d off last night, just for the simple fact, I don't know the President as a man, just like he don't know us as men. It's not about race, it's not about black and white, it's about right and wrong."

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

There was a lot of talking coming into this game about whether the home crowd would cheer for the Jets. Sounds weird, right? There's a faction of the fan base that wants them to lose so the team can get the top draft pick. So far, the crowd is into it. In fact, the Dolphins have three pre-snap penalties because of crowd noise. Who'da thunk it?

The Dolphins are jumpy in the first quarter. Two false starts and two encroachment penalties by Miami already.

Dan Graziano ESPN Staff Writer 

Giants winning the field position battle, and the defense looks fired up, but I have no idea what they were trying to do on that third-down run play.

Mike Triplett ESPN Staff Writer 

A heavy dose of WR Michael Thomas (five catches, 50 yards and a TD) on the Saints' opening drive as they score a first-quarter TD for the first time all year to take a 7-3 lead at Carolina. Thomas has gotten a ton of attention from opposing defenses this year. Finally got his first TD catch in Week 3.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers give up first touchdown of the season and trail for the first time this season (7-3) after 4-yard touchdown catch by Saints receiver Michael Thomas. Carolina defenders had nothing for Thomas that whole drive as he caught five passes for 50 yards.

Here's what happened during the Eagles' national anthem demonstration:

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Orleans Darkwa in to start the second drive. He is clearly closing the gap on Paul Perkins, who didn't look great on the opening drive.

Courtney Cronin ESPN Staff Writer 

A host of Vikings were joined by GM Rick Spielman and owners Mark and Zygi Wilf on the sideline pregame and linked arms during the National Anthem. Not all Vikings participated in the display, including members of the OL, Dalvin Cook, Latavius Murray, C.J. Ham, among others, who stood with their hands over their heart during the anthem. Running back Jerick McKinnon stood with his arms around Vikings special teams coach Mike Priefer and trainer Eric Sugarman.

Tim McManus ESPN Staff Writer 

Left guard Chance Warmack, starting in place of the struggling Isaac Seumalo, is off to a rough start against the Giants. DT Jay Bromley ran right through him to sack Carson Wentz on the Eagles' second possession.

Giants cornerbacks playing sides. Jenkins is not following Alston Jeffery.

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

Jamal Agnew the returner for the Lions.

James Walker ESPN Staff Writer 

You don't see this every game: Dolphins rookie DT Davon Godchaux jumped offsides two straight plays. He was benched after the second infraction.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

That Carolina field goal drive ate up 8:41 of the first quarter. The Panthers entered the game with the most six-plus minute drives in the league. But at some point settling for field goals is going to bite them.

Dan Graziano ESPN Staff Writer 

Giants' offense up-tempo early, Eli Manning getting rid of ball quickly. Trying to keep Eagles from changing defensive personnel on them, and of course the quick releases are designed to help with protection. They moved the ball into Eagles territory but couldn't convert third-down throw to Odell Beckham.

Mike Reiss ESPN Staff Writer 

From pre-game/national anthem: Patriots QB Tom Brady stood with his hand over his chest, and his left arm locked with WR Phillip Dorsett as others linked arms in a line with them. Also, about 20 Patriots kneeled together during the anthem.

Mike Triplett ESPN Staff Writer 

A big-time sack by Saints DE Cameron Jordan on third-and-4 forced the Panthers to settle for a field goal after marching inside New Orleans' 10-yard line on the opening drive. That's a big win for the Saints defense, which will settle for bend-but-don't-break at this point after allowing more than 1,000 yards and 65 points in the first two games combined.
