New York Jets 13, Indianapolis Colts 10

After a pair of field goals in the first quarter, Colts quarterback Matt Hasselbeck took over and finished with 114 passing yards and 12-yard touchdown to Daniel Herron. Chris Johnson tied the game up halfway through the second period.

Place kicker Andrew Furney nailed a 51-yard field goal in the final minute of the game to give the Jets the victory after a very boring second half.

Colts: Josh Lenz did not play in the game. David Sims recorded two total tackles (assisted)

Jets: Both Jeremiah George and Jeremy Reeves recorded a solo tackle.

Washington Redskins 23, New England Patriots 6

Most notable in the blowout win: former Baylor running back Lance Seastrunk led the way for Washington with 12 carries for 63 yards. Both Kirk Cousins and former Texas quarterback Colt McCoy combined for over 200 yards on 17-of-22 passing.

Redskins: Jake McDonough is currently the third player listed at right defensive end, but the position is missing expected starter Jason Hatcher.

Balimore Ravens 23, San Francisco 49ers 3

The Ravens were dominant in a game that saw the 49ers regret their decision to pick up Blaine Gabbert, the backup quarterback who went a paltry 3-for-11 for 20 yards and a pick. In comparison, Tyrod Taylor went 13-of-21 for 116 yards, a touchdown, and an interception.

49ers: Carter Bykowski recorded a solo tackle.

Ravens: On the offensive line, Kelechi Osemele is the starter at left guard and Reggie Stephens is currently listed as the third guy at center.

Tonight’s games will feature Tim Dobbins on the Atlanta Falcons, Leonard Johnson on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Deon Broomfield on the Buffalo Bills, Jansen Watson on the Oakland Raiders, and Jake Knott on the Philadelphia Eagles.
