Steelers WRs Martavis Bryant and JuJu Smith-Schuster appeared to reenact a play from a few weeks earlier following Bryant's touchdown against the Patriots. The play in question, a blindside block from Smith-Schuster on Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict, resulted in a concussion for Burfict that kept him out two games and a one game suspension for Smith-Schuster. During the celebration, Bryant got on the ground while Smith-Schuster stood over him, and also kicked out his leg and tried to grab Smith-Schuster's leg, all of which occurred on the actual play in question. Smith-Schuster had previously apologized for standing over Burfict after he made the hit.

Tom Brady went 300 passing attempts and 12 years without being intercepted by the Steelers...until Vince Williams picked him off in the open field in the third quarter. Brady's first interception against Pittsburgh since 2005.

"I think we'll just have to watch the film and learn from it, but at this point in time, I really can't pinpoint one thing. It's a game of inches." -- Cardinals quarterback Blaine Gabbert on why Arizona struggled offensively on Sunday.

The only intrigue left in this game is when the Seahawks will pull starters. Bobby Wagner was not in on the last series. He'd been gutting it out on a bad hamstring, so that may have been an easy decision. Russell Wilson and the No. 1 offense are still in late into the third quarter.

How bad has the Cardinals' injury situation been this season? "A little bit worse" than in 2012 when he was the Colts' interim coach. Arians likes to tell stories from that season of not knowing the names of some players who were signed on Tuesdays and playing on Sundays. It's worse this year, Arians said, "because we still had our quarterback then."

1st Time in 12 years Brady's been picked off by Steelers

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

The 49ers' 13-point lead has begun to evaporate but they did well to hold the Titans to a field goal to open the second half and still cling to a 3-point lead. They'll need QB Jimmy Garoppolo and the offense to get something going here as the Titans have much more at stake in this one than the Niners.

Injuries were another storyline coming out of the Cardinals' loss to Washington. Their injured list from Sunday include: RB Kerwynn Williams (quad), DT Robert Nkemdiche (wrist), LB Karlos Dansby, LB Josh Bynes, WR Brittan Golden (arm), S Antoine Bethea (knee) and TE Troy Niklas (ankle).

Jets QB Bryce Petty struggled against the Saints' standard rush. He was 7-for-21 for 62 yards and two interceptions against four or fewer pass rushers, per ESPN Stats & Information — the third-worst completion percentage on such throws this season. He had four batted passes by Cameron Jordan, tied for the most by any player in the last 10 seasons.

The Patriots have ruled out RB Rex Burkhead with a knee injury. Burkhead was injured on a 2-yard run early in the third quarter. This means more work for Dion Lewis in the game, and in the big picture, potentially thrusts Mike Gillislee back on to the 46-man game-day roster.

The Seahawks are going to try to dirty up this game and the Rams can't fall into it. Pretty soon, Sean McVay may have to start thinking about pulling starters.

Todd Gurley streaks to the right, finds himself wide open up the sideline and runs 14 yards for his fourth -- yes, fourth -- touchdown of the game. With more than 22 minutes remaining. It's 40-0, and CenturyLink Field is emptying.

Anthony Barr was asked postgame about whether he'll say anything to Aaron Rodgers next week when the Vikings face the Packers: "I don't know. I haven't really thought about it. I'll see him on the field and whatever happens, happens."

RB Rex Burkhead remained down after a 2-yard gain early in the third quarter, with the medical staff coming on to the field to evaluate him. Burkhead walked off slowly under his own power and then headed to the blue medical tent along the sideline.
