Welcome to game day.
Note: All times listed in pacific.
The Chargers have rolled over Arizona so far, but not everything has gone their way. Melvin Gordon, who looked like a game-time decision coming into Sunday, has left the game with a knee injury. Los Angeles announced him as questionable to return, but the team might well play it safe given Gordon's other injuries and the sizeable lead.
Philip Rivers' greatness has often flown under the radar, but perhaps the record he set Sunday will bring him some long-deserved recognition. Rivers completed his first 25 pass attempts against the Cardinals, recording the most recent on a touchdown to Keenan Allen. The streak broke Mark Brunell's prevoius record of 22 straight completions to open a game and tied the mark for most consecutive completions at any point during a game.
2:35 p.m. - Andrew Luck: Professional Wide Reciever
The Steelers dialed up a brilliant play fake, opening up tight end Xavier Grimble to the backside with not a defender in sight. Grimble caught the pass and made his way to the goal line where ... a hit from William Parks jarred the ball loose and into the end zone. The play resulted in a touchback and turnover, a massive swing in Denver's favor.
1:41 p.m. - Luck, Ebron hit big milestones
2018 has seen Andrew Luck and Eric Ebron undergo career renaissances. Early in the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Dolphins, the duo hooked up for 14-yard touchdown. That score knotted up the game at seven all and gave Luck his 30th touchdown pass of the year as well as Ebron's 10th touchdown receptoin.
While Josh Allen's passing stat line won't surprise many people (8/19 for 160 yards and a touchdown), his gains on the ground will probably raise an eyebrow or two. Allen rushed 11 times for 101 yards and a touchdown, crossed the century mark during the fourth quarter. The Bills have a 10-point lead, but the Jaguars have the ball and just over two minutes to play.
Christian McCaffrey has paid off for fantasy players today, going over 100 yards both as a rusher and receiver. Most impressively, he recorded literally every yard gained on the Panthers 75-yard scoring drive that restored their lead. McCaffrey currently has two touchdowns with plenty of ballgame left.
So much for Sony Michel missing time. The rookie running back returned from being bent awkwardly and proceeded to break off a 33-yard run.
Carson has 67 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown so far on the day.
The Bengals have more to worry about than just getting blown out by the Browns. Quarterback Andy Dalton left the game after injuring his right thumb, the same thumb that forced him to miss the end of the 2015 season. Whether this injury will keep him out for a significant period of time remains unclear, but Cincinnati's season looks in trouble.
11:12 a.m. - Saquon does it again
The Buccaneers have made their share of mistakes, but they didn't miss on Mike Evans. The wide receiver went over 1,000 receiving yards on Sunday, marking his fifth time he reached the mark in his career. Evans' name doesn't come up in discussions of the top wideouts in the game, but his production and consistency makes a compelling case.
10:40 a.m. - Welcome back, Josh Allen
After missing multiple weeks with an elbow injury, Bills rookie signal-caller Josh Allen reminded the team why it made such a sizeable investment in him. Allen hit Robert Foster for a 75-yard touchdown, the longest pass for Buffalo since Tyrod Taylor connected with Marquise Goodwin for 84 yards two seasons ago.
10:34 a.m. - Fast start for Antonio Callaway
