Pantbers coach Ron RIvera likes what Kyle Allen continues to do at quarterback with Cam Newton out, saying Allen ‘'has been very consistent.'' RIvera said he won't address the return of Newton until he has to, allowing the 2015 NFL MVP to continue to rehab. No timetable.

Teddy Bridgewater started 6-of-13 passing Sunday at Jacksonville after he completed 75 percent of his passes over the past three games (all victories). One of those incompletions was questionable (a deep ball to Ted Ginn Jr. that looked like a possible catch but wasn't overturned after a replay review). But Bridgewater was also uncharacteristically off-target on a handful of other throws. He did finish the first quarter with a 27-yard completion to Ted Ginn Jr. though.

The Chiefs have allowed the Texans to score on two of their three possessions. The Chiefs entered the game allowing either a touchdown or field goal on 44.2 percent of their possessions, which was fifth worst in the league. That puts a ton of pressure on Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs to delver on offense.

For the second time in three weeks, the Saints' defense carried them to a slugfest win with a dominant performance. They silenced "Mishew Mania" and shut down the NFL's hottest running back in Leonard Fournette while escaping Jacksonville with a 13-6 victory. And they are now improbably 4-0 in Drew Brees' absence, even though backup QB Teddy Bridgewater didn't have his best day Sunday.

The Dolphins benched Josh Rosen for Ryan Fitzpatrick three quarters into Sunday's game against Washington. Earlier this week, Brian Flores said Josh Rosen was "settled" as Dolphins QB and he wanted to see how he improved throughout the season. But offensive struggles appear to have led Flores to change his tune as he looked for a spark. Fitzpatrick led Dolphins to their first second half points of the season via a touchdown drive.

What a difference a quarterback makes. Sam Darnold led a 14-play, 83-yard TD drive on his second possession, creating an entirely different feel for the Jets' offense. Darnold hit five different receivers on the drive, highlighting his ability to see the entire field. Luke Falk, cut yesterday after two dismal starts, couldn't do that.
Amari Cooper is standing on the sideline during the Cowboys' second drive with a quadriceps injury, according to the team's radio broadcast. Cooper suffered the injury in last week's loss to Green Bay but was able to make it through practice during the week. He said the ankle injury that bothered him earlier in the season was more of an issue than the quad. He spent time on the sideline riding the stationary bike but he does not have his helmet with him.
Just how potent can the Cardinals' offense be? Look at the drive that put them ahead 17-7 as the perfect example. It took them three plays to go 78 yards down to the Falcons 1-yard-line, and then David Johnson powered in from there for a touchdown. Arizona's three plays went for 17, 30 and 31 yards, respectively. But there's more. Only two players got the ball on that drive: David Johnson had plays of 17, 30 and then the touchdown, and Chase Edmonds had a 31-yard play.
Here's how tough of a time Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew had on Sunday, per NFL Next Gen Stats: Minshew went 0-of-7 passing into a tight window (1 or fewer yards), tied for the most attempts without a completion in a game this season. He also went 1-of-7 with an interception when Saints CB Marshon Lattimore was the nearest defender on a target (including three tight-window throws).

In a game that so far has been predictably low scoring, the 49ers still have to feel like they missed some big opportunities in the first half against the Rams. It's tied at 7 as the teams head into the locker room with both sides failing to score after reaching the opponent's 1. The Niners need to get going on both sides of the ball when it comes to the run as they've been able to generate much on the ground and struggled to stop the Rams. To get to 5-0, they'll need to be better in both areas.

Seahawks center Justin Britt on Russell Wilson: “He's the best quarterback in the league." Wilson threw for two more touchdowns Sunday, giving him 14 on the season to no interceptions, and ran for another score in Seattle's 32-28 win. "He's been balling," Britt said. "He's our leader. He's our guy. He's the epitome of our attitude and what we're about and how we go about things. He's very special and I'm honored to be able to block for him. I'd go to war with him any day. He's one of the best."
Redskins defensive end Jonathan Allen, who had two sacks, said, "When you win you're excited, when you lose you're not. It doesn't matter how you get it done in the NFL. There's no highs and lows. That's what you guys don't understand. I'm not jumping for joy. We won. We were supposed to win."
