Blame Grigson, not Luck, for Colts' mess

"When you pay Andrew what we did, it's going to take some time to build on the other side of the ball," said Colts GM Ryan Grigson, who has had plenty of time and not much to show for it in Indy.

Football Kit Mashups: From A to Zenit

Football. And football. Same name, two totally different sports. But one thing they do have in common is iconic uniforms that help shape team identities. With the club season in full swing (and amid international break monotony), we had some fun.

Darius Slay questionable to return with a hamstring injury.

Katherine Terrell ESPN Staff Writer 

Browns take a 10-7 lead after Isaiah Crowell runs in for a one-yard touchdown. That was set up by the previous play, when Cody Kessler flipped the ball to TE Gary Barnidge, who caught it for an 11-yard gain. Kessler was leveled as he threw and walked off with trainers. Bengals offense needs to respond here after a rough outing on their last series.

Field Yates @FieldYates

Colts just went with a surprise onside kick vs. the Titans. Indy recovers, starts this drive with a 14-6 lead.

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

The Lions secondary is in trouble. Top cornerback Darius Slay is headed to the locker room with what appears to be a leg injury -- although there has been no official word yet. If he is out for any length of time, that's a crushing blow to Detroit's already-struggling defense.


This TD notched Taylor's 4th career Rush TD of at least 10 yards, most among QB since start of 2015 season.

Mike DiRocco ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jaguars have 78 yards rushing after Chris Ivory's 42-yard run. That's more than they had in four games this season (all but Indy).

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

The Bills continue to produce on option schemes this season. That was a triple-option (from an unbalanced front) with Tyrod Taylor pulling the ball on a 10-yard TD run to give the Bills a 10-3 lead over the Dolphins in the second quarter.

Jamison Hensley ESPN Staff Writer 

Ravens K Justin Tucker has now hit 24 field goals in a row. His 49-yarder puts Baltimore ahead, 13-7.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

Brandon Scherff is questionable with a left shoulder injury for Washington. Arie Kouandjio is in the game for him. Scherff played his best game last week vs. the Eagles. He moves better than Kouandjio so his loss would impact certain plays.

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

Tyrod Taylor now has four rushing touchdowns of 10 yards or more, the most among quarterbacks since the start of last season, per ESPN Stats & Information.

Field Yates @FieldYates

Chiefs DB Daniel Sorensen came into today with 1 career sack and 1 career INT. He has a sack and a pick-6 already today vs. Saints.

Matt Bowen @MattBowen41

Bills have been producing on the option schemes the last couple of weeks. Looked like triple-option there on the Taylor TD run.

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

The Raiders offense has stalled in the red zone of late, settling for a pair of field goals today after getting to Jacksonville's 7- and 14-yard lines. The running game stalling has caused fits as Oakland is just 5 of its last 10 in red-zone efficiency.

Mike Reiss ESPN Staff Writer 

TE Rob Gronkowski, who is coming off a career-high 162-yard receiving game, arrives at Heinz Field.

James Walker ESPN Staff Writer 

A blocked punt leads to a 10-yard touchdown run by Bills QB Tyrod Taylor. Buffalo leads, 10-3. Special teams have hurt Miami in recent games.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

A big difference between Rob Kelley and Matt Jones: Kelley uses better body lean consistently. Kelley is more decisive with his cuts and it helps him gain yards after contact more often.

ESPN Stats and Information  

The Vikings offense did not commit a turnover on their first 57 drives of the season, but then committed one on each of their next two drives

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

Bills go with LeSean McCoy and Reggie Bush in backfield in the red zone... and Tyrod Taylor takes an option run for a 10-yard touchdown. Bills getting production outside McCoy today.


TOUCHDOWN BILLS! Tyrod Taylor hit the turbo button and found the endzone. Bills take the lead.

Matthew Berry ESPN Senior Writer 

After 2 fumbles Matt Jones to the bench. Will be interesting to see what preseason star Rob Kelley does here. Gruden won't stand for fumbles

Kevin Pelton @kpelton

The growing conventional wisdom that NFL quality of play is down is a great example of this effect.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

Terrelle Pryor's hamstring has the Browns using Kevin Hogan as the read-option quarterback. Hogan has kept the ball three times and gained 7, 15 and 15 yards.

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

Mike Gillislee enters the game for the first time on 3rd-and-7 in second quarter. LeSean McCoy has played almost every snap to this point but has only 12 rushing yards on five carries.
