Pittsburgh nonetheless leads — however solely by 31-29— after a wonderful 80-yard drive highlighted by the contributions of famous N.F.L. stars Jalen Hurts and Travis Fulgham, an undrafted second-year receiver out of Previous Dominion, who capped it with a 4-yard landing.

Chase, that is everybody.

The Steelers excel at scouting receiving expertise, and Claypool, a rookie from Notre Dame, appears the newest instance. Following the likes of Santonio Holmes and Antonio Brown, Emmanuel Sanders and JuJu Smith-Schuster, Claypool on Sunday has accounted for the Steelers’ first three touchdowns.

Someway, they later managed to attain with out his assist, on a James Conner 1-yard run that prolonged their result in 31-14. The Eagles responded by reducing the deficit to 31-22, on Carson Wentz’s 8-yard landing cross to Greg Ward and subsequent 2-point conversion.

However Le’Veon Bell, getting back from a hamstring harm sustained of their season opener, took flight the place the remainder of the Jets didn’t. He gained 44 dashing yards, greater than half of the Jets’ 82-yard whole.

Placing Bell again into play was no query for Coach Adam Gase this week because the Jets are scrambling for his or her first win of the season. Or at the very least to return inside 9 factors of a victory.

“He did job of, one, getting wholesome after which staying in fine condition,” Gase mentioned of Bell on Thursday. “I feel he feels even higher now than he did after we sort of hit that first recreation.”

Pressure between Bell and Gase rose as he pulled the operating again from observe in August when his hamstring was tight. Since then, the pair appeared to have put their variations apart, nonetheless the extended hiatus and rocky relationship is simply the newest in Bell’s troubles with the Jets. Bell, who earned a league-high 321 carries for 1,291 yards and made 85 catches for 655 yards in 2017 as a Steeler, noticed his worst season for a lot of of his stats in his first yr as a Jet in 2019, together with a mere 4 touchdowns.

Alex Smith made his return to the sphere.

Alex Smith didn’t must play a single down this season to be thought-about a favourite to win the league’s comeback participant of the yr award. Simply by getting back from a grotesque knee harm that jeopardized not solely his profession however his life, Smith demonstrated outstanding resilience and power.

Our Invoice Pennington was at FedEx Discipline on Nov. 18, 2018, and he described the scene thusly: “Smith was sacked by two charging Houston Texans, and in a grisly sequence paying homage to Theismann’s harm, Smith’s proper leg crumbled and twisted, fracturing each the tibia and fibula bones. Tv replays confirmed Smith’s leg buckle and provides method. Mendacity on the bottom, together with his decrease leg bowed, Smith at first tried to drag his jersey over his head to cover his anguish.”

In opposition to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Smith was lively for the primary time since hurting his knee, and when starter Kyle Allen went out after absorbing a helmet-to-helmet hit, Smith got here on to guide Washington’s offense.

Smith ran three performs — Aaron Donald welcomed him again with a third-down sack — earlier than Washington was pressured to punt.

Pittsburgh answered the Eagles’ landing with one other rating by the rookie Chase Claypool, a receiver within the mould of Seattle’s D.Ok. Metcalf: huge, sturdy, tall and quick. Crossing the center, Claypool caught a cross in stride from Ben Roethlisberger, shed one tackler and ran untouched to place Pittsburgh forward by 14-7 early within the second quarter.

Carolina goes forward in Atlanta.

Hey, look, if it’s a day that ends in Y, the Falcons should be dropping once more. They’ve, but once more, methodically relinquished a lead. Carolina, which as soon as trailed by 7-0, stacked a landing — a 57-yard catch-and-run by D.J. Moore — with two Joey Slye discipline targets to take a 13-7 lead in Atlanta.

Bengals rookie quarterback Joe Burrow, who has been operating for his life all afternoon, threw an interception in his personal 43-yard line. An pointless roughness penalty on Cincinnati’s Carlos Dunlap — he gave Lamar Jackson a one-handed shove close to the sideline — and a 14-yard cross reception by Mark Andrews rapidly helped transfer the Ravens to the Bengals’ 2-yard line. Jackson rolled to his proper and on the run whistled a landing cross to Marquise Brown that put the Ravens forward, 17-0.

Eagles’ Sanders scores a homecoming TD.

Miles Sanders performed in his first N.F.L. contest at Heinz Discipline on Sunday, nevertheless it was removed from his first recreation there. A Pittsburgh native, Sanders was a operating again for the Swissvale Golden Flashes, in response to The Athletic, and scored a landing throughout halftime of a Steelers recreation. He performed at Heinz twice at Woodland Hills Excessive College, and twice extra once more as a operating again at Penn State.

On Sunday, Sanders added to his fond recollections at Heinz by operating for the longest landing by a Philadelphia Eagle since 2000. On his 74-yard scoot, Sanders evaded a sort out on the line of scrimmage, then another 50 yards downfield, to even the rating at 7-7. It was the Eagles’ longest landing run since Brian Mitchell went for 85 on Oct. 1, 2000, in response to Professional Soccer Reference.

Lamar Jackson continues to be deadly within the crimson zone.

In his profession, Lamar Jackson has but to throw an interception inside an opponent’s 20-yard line. Jackson prolonged that streak with a 5-yard landing to tight finish Mark Andrews late within the first quarter that gave the Ravens a 10-0 lead over the Bengals.

The rating got here after the Cincinnati protection had been giving the Ravens some bother, particularly when it got here to disrupting the operating recreation and placing stress on Jackson’s passing. However a nifty third-down, 9-yard cross from Jackson to Andrews picked up a primary down on the Bengals 9-yard line. Two Mark Ingram rushes moved the ball to the 5-yard line. Andrews did job sealing off his defender in the long run zone and after ready patiently within the pocket for a couple of seconds, Jackson fired a bullet to Andrews.

Steelers reap the benefits of cross interference name.

The Steelers, aided by a questionable pass-interference name on Philadelphia cornerback Darius Slay, went up 7-0 after a possession that consumed practically half the primary quarter. A 2-yard run by rookie receiver Chase Claypool capped a 14-play collection that featured dink after dunk after dink by quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who accomplished 5 of seven passes for 36 yards on the drive. On his lone lengthy try, from second-and-16 on the Philadelphia 28-yard line, Roethlisberger overthrew James Washington, whom Slay blanketed downfield. However the official threw a late flag, and as a substitute of dealing with third-and-16, Pittsburgh had first down inside the ten and scored 4 performs later.

Jets path in Flacco’s first begin in practically a yr.

With beginning quarterback Sam Darnold out with a shoulder harm, backup Joe Flacco made his first begin in an N.F.L. recreation in nearly a yr; the Oct. 1 loss to the Broncos, Flacco’s former staff, was his first look as a Jet. Flacco himself has solely had minimal observe as a consequence of a neck harm within the low season, which already doesn’t bode properly for the Jets who haven’t gained with a backup since Dec. 2016, when Bryce Petty scraped collectively a win towards the San Francisco 49ers.

The Jets had been hopeful, nonetheless, {that a} changeup on the sphere would rejigger their odds towards the Arizona Cardinals, who’re coming off two losses and stand at 2-2 for the season.

Midway by means of the primary quarter, it was clear that it might not. The Jets began with the ball solely to lose it. And the Cardinals made good use of their time: A 29-yard dashing landing by operating again Chase Edmonds allowed Arizona to take an early lead, placing them up, 7-0.

Among the many league’s worst offenders at blowing leads — you, Detroit — the Atlanta Falcons raced out to a 7-0 lead towards Carolina on a 35-yard run by Todd Gurley.

The Falcons tousled double-digit benefits in consecutive video games, however should have realized Monday night time in Inexperienced Bay that they couldn’t give up a lead in the event that they by no means took one in any respect. <headtap.gif>

Now let’s see how the Falcons deal with prosperity.

Lamar Jackson appears to be like rusty.

The Ravens regarded dominant of their first drive, which featured a devilish misdirection broad receiver reverse for 42 yards by Devin Duvernay. However Lamar Jackson, who spent the complete week listed as questionable for each a knee harm and an sickness, appears to be like a little bit rusty up to now. He bypassed an open receiver that may have picked up a primary down and threw behind one other receiver. These miscues led to a 46-yard discipline aim try that Justin Tucker, after all, transformed with a kick down the center for a 3-0 Baltimore lead. Tucker hasn’t missed a discipline aim or further level this season.

Broncos-Patriots has been delayed indefinitely.

The N.F.L. has indefinitely postponed Monday’s recreation between the Denver Broncos and the New England Patriots, the newest reshuffling of the league’s schedule to accommodate the rash of optimistic checks for the coronavirus.

The league had already pushed again the sport from Sunday to Monday after Stephon Gilmore, the staff’s star defensive again, examined optimistic. The staff returned to observe Saturday, however one other presumptive optimistic check Sunday pressured the league to behave earlier than the Broncos left Denver for Foxborough, Mass.

The league has not mentioned when or if the sport will likely be made up. As a result of this week will now function the bye week for each groups, there are not any different openings on their schedule until different video games are moved, or the league provides an extra week to the season for make-up video games. The Patriots had been initially scheduled for a bye in Week 6, and the Broncos had a bye in Week 8. Learn the complete story right here.

From 0-1 to 3-1.

Proving that an 0-1 begin isn’t so dangerous, the Colts and the Browns have each adopted up their opening-week disappointment with three consecutive wins, every of which got here in convincing trend. Indianapolis is powered by its protection and operating recreation — and quarterback Philip Rivers is becoming in properly as he climbs the profession landing record — whereas Cleveland has lastly discovered its offensive mojo, with Baker Mayfield, Odell Beckham Jr. and the remainder of the staff clicking in the best way everybody thought they’d final season.

So what occurs when the Colts’ protection tries to decelerate the Browns’ offense? The reply may give a strong indication of which of those groups is an actual contender and which one is simply beating up on lesser competitors.

Complicating issues for Indianapolis is linebacker Darius Leonard being questionable with a groin harm. He wasn’t capable of observe on Wednesday or Thursday, and if he had been to overlook the sport that may open up the center of the sphere for the Browns.

Las Vegas thinks these video games will likely be boring.

The Ravens and Chiefs are each predicted to win their video games (towards Cincinnati and Las Vegas, respectively) by 13 or extra factors. The Cowboys are predicted to beat the Giants by at the very least 9.5. So are these video games going to be snoozers? You shouldn’t rely on that.

For Baltimore, scoring on Cincinnati’s protection must be straightforward — very easy — due to the Bengals being weakest towards the run. However Cincinnati has regarded reborn on offense due to No. 1 over all draft choose Joe Burrow, and final week operating again Joe Mixon hit his stride with a monster recreation. Anticipating them to win on the street can be foolish, particularly since they’re prone to enable 200 or extra dashing yards, however Burrow’s adjustment to the N.F.L. has been so easy that he ought to make the sport thrilling even when he loses in convincing trend.

The Chiefs are big favorites, which may be a nasty factor contemplating how little they appear to pay attention towards lesser competitors. Add in Las Vegas having an offense that may rating in a rush and this recreation might simply go sideways, forcing Patrick Mahomes to drag off certainly one of his epic comebacks.

As for the Giants … being 9.5-point underdogs might be correct and anticipating that recreation to be anyplace close to shut can be overly optimistic. However hey, Dak Prescott has thrown for 450, 472 and 502 yards in his final three video games, so perhaps he goes for 530 on this one.

What number of factors will likely be scored on Sunday Evening Soccer?

The Seahawks are averaging 35.5 factors a recreation and the Vikings are averaging 26.5. Each groups’ defenses enable greater than 400 yards and greater than 27 factors a recreation. Las Vegas is predicting this to be the week’s highest scoring recreation, with an over/beneath of 57, and that truthfully feels low primarily based on the strengths and limitations of each groups.

Seattle is powered by Russell Wilson, who tied Peyton Manning’s document of 16 landing passes by means of his staff’s first 4 video games. He has a pair of elite broad receivers in DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, and Chris Carson has proved strong at operating again. Minnesota can do all the pieces on offense, with Kirk Cousins having the ability to select between operating again Dalvin Prepare dinner and broad receivers Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson on each play.

Did we point out that Seattle has a number of vital accidents on protection, together with star security Jamal Adams who is predicted to be out for this recreation?

Probably the most factors scored in a Sunday prime time recreation was the 98 put up by the San Diego Chargers and the Pittsburgh Steelers on Dec. 8, 1985 — the Chargers gained, 54-44 — however the highest-scoring recreation within the present Sunday Evening Soccer format got here in New England’s 43-40 win over Kansas Metropolis on Oct. 14, 2018.

Overly hyped matchups are inclined to disappoint, however the potential is definitely there for this recreation to problem these totals.

The ready recreation.

Along with the indefinite delay of Denver’s Week 5 recreation towards New England, Tennessee, had their recreation towards Buffalo delayed till Tuesday, after a number of extra Titans examined optimistic in the course of the week,.

In an acknowledgment that the Titans should not but within the clear, the N.F.L. rescheduled Buffalo’s Week 6 recreation, which was initially scheduled for Thursday of subsequent week, however mentioned it might return to Thursday if their Tuesday recreation towards the Titans can’t be performed.

To this point a reasonably small variety of groups have been affected by the problems in Tennessee. However with the Titans’ bye already burned, and the bye weeks of the Patriots, the Broncos and the Steelers burned early as properly, any flexibility within the schedule is drying up rapidly.
