The Colts were without three of their top five receivers, their starting tight end and starting left guard. That didn't matter. They still needed to badly beat the Titans if they expect to have any chance in the AFC South. Quarterback Andrew Luck completed passes to seven different receivers to pick up his 16th victory when trailing in the fourth quarter or overtime in leading the Colts to the 34-26 victory. The Colts have now won 10 straight over the Titans. More importantly they're 3-4 and right back in the mix of things in the AFC South.

The Jets' quarterback situation took another turn: Geno Smith got hurt and Ryan Fitzpatrick got mad, calling out the coach, the GM and the owner for not having confidence in him. My thoughts.

The Chiefs may be in the early stages of yet another long winning streak.

Jaguars LB Paul Posluszny says coach Gus Bradley has not lost the locker room, despite the way things unraveled today: "I don't think that's the case. That means I've done a poor job. I have a 'C' on my chest. That's not going to be the case because as players we're not going to allow that."

Really good start for Julio Jones fantasy owners today....The Falcons WR had five receptions for 107 yards in the first half with a 50-yard gain coming on a deep "Yankee" concept. And that's a play the Falcons can come back to with Jones in a tight split. That scheme allows Jones to get off the line with a clean release and it is designed to beat both zone and man coverage on the deep crossing route.

Against the Titans, Andrew Luck completed a career-high nine passes of at least 15 air yards Sunday, the second-most by any quarterback in a game this season. Ryan Fitzpatrick had 10 for the Jets in Week 2 at the Bills.

The Falcons fell behind 7-0 to the Chargers early but made up for it and hold a 27-17 halftime lead. Matt Ryan is 11 of 15 for 155 yards and TD. Julio Jones with five catches for 107 yards. Tevin Coleman, Jacob Tamme, and Adrian Clayborn with TDs.

Frustration is starting to mount for the Cleveland Browns, who are winless in seven games, and who have used six quarterbacks before the halfway point of the season. Quarterback might not even be the Browns' biggest issue; they gave up 559 yards in offense to the Bengals in a 31-17 loss.

The goalposts at Ford Field are coming down temporarily. Why? A Luke Bryan concert at the stadium next weekend when the Lions will be in Houston.

The Bucs overcame a 14-0 deficit to take a 17-14 at halftime. Jameis Winston has had costly mistakes -- he threw an interception and had an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, but he atoned for it with a 19-yard touchdown pass to Russell Shepard on third-and-9 with :53 to go in the first half.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones has five catches for 107 yards against San Diego's defense and it's only halftime. The Chargers have turned it over twice and look overmatched in this one, Melvin Gordon's two TDs Kept San Diego within shouting distance, trailing 27-17.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Melvin Gordon fantasy owners continue to cash in on deep red zone carries with the Chargers RB. Gordon is averaging only 2.6 yards per carry versus the Falcons, but he just scored his second TD of the day on three-yard run.

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

Matthew Stafford started his fourth game-winning drive of the season right here on the turf. It's the type of play the Lions have come to expect from their star quarterback.

Paul Kuharsky ESPN Staff Writer 

The Titans had better people on the field Sunday at Nissan Stadium. So why couldn't they break through against the Colts?


Jeremy Fowler ESPN Staff Writer 

Three trips to red zone, seven points for Steelers offense. That won't get it done against New England.

James Walker ESPN Staff Writer 

Dolphins running back Jay Ajayi, who became the just the fourth player in the post-Super Bowl era to post back-to-back 200-yard games, said afterwards that he's excited for the rest of the season but the upcoming bye week comes at a good time. Ajayi plans to rest his body after getting 54 carries for 418 yards the past two weeks in a pair of victories for the Dolphins (3-4).


Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

The 49ers entered Sunday's game against Tampa Bay 1-1 after jumping out to 14-0 leads, beating the Rams and losing to Dallas. They had that lead against the Bucs in the first quarter today but immediately reverted back to the things that have plagued them this year. Namely, turnovers and shoddy run defense. The Niners gave up 17 unanswered points and now trail 17- 14 at the half. For a team that has struggled mightily in the second half, the Niners are going to have to find a way to fix those issues at the half if they want to be 2-1 after leading 14-0 and end their 5-game losing streak today.

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

Jacquizz Rodgers now has two career 100-yard rushing games. He said that he carried the ball so much against Carolina (30 touches) that he had to get three massages during the bye week. He's had 13 carries in the first half.

Mike Triplett ESPN Staff Writer 

Want to know what a 7-9 team looks like? It's the Saints, who appear headed that way for the third year in a row after their inconsistency once again reared its ugly head at Chiefs.

My favorite weekly tradition of 2016 is when Melvin Gordon scores a TD and I think about that time I was all "Melvin Gordon will own 2015."

Ravens have lost four straight games but the players say they haven't lost hope on the season
