Philip Rivers and the Los Angeles Chargers’ offense started out on a roll against Washington.
The Chargers racked up 354 yards against the Redskins while taking a 23-6 lead. Those 354 yards were the most a first half for the Chargers since at least 1991 and their most in any half since 2010.
Rivers passed for 256 yards and two touchdowns while passing Warren Moon for ninth place in NFL history in yards passing.
The Chargers didn’t punt [url=http://www.officialbruinsproonline.com/authentic-adidas-david-pastrnak-jersey]Adidas

The Seattle Seahawks were held scoreless in a first half for the first time in more than a year.
Jalen Ramsey intercepted one of Russell Wilson’s deep passes, Blair Walsh missed a 38-yard field goal at the end of the half and the Jaguars led Seattle 3-0 at the break.
It was the first time the Seahawks were held without points in an opening 30 minutes since playing at Arizona in October 2016. That game ended in a 6-6 tie.

Larry Fitzgerald of Arizona now stands third on the NFL’s all-time receiving list.
The Cardinals wide receiver caught a 23-yard pass early in the third quarter against Tennessee to give him 15,303 yards receiving. That pushed him past Randy Moss who had 15 [url=http://www.buccaneerscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-ryan-jensen-jersey]Authentic
Ryan Jensen Jersey[/url] ,292 yards. Fitzgerald used to wash Moss’ car for cash and borrowed it for the prom.
Only Jerry Rice (22,895) and Terry Owens (15,934) have more yards receiving in NFL history than Fitzgerald.
Tennessee Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan is out against the Arizona Cardinals with a back injury.
Lewan went to the locker room with a back injury in the first half, and the tackle who was a Pro Bowl lineman last season was questionable to return. But he came out for the second half without his gear.
Backup Dennis Kelly replaced Lewan at left tackle.
The Associated Press has counted at least 16 NFL players protesting during the national anthem in Week 14.
After five players protested during the early games, the count jumped with the late afternoon games.
Chargers left tackle Russell Okung raised his fist as he does every game before kickoff against Washington.
In Arizona, Titan wide receiver Rishard Matthews stayed off the field during the anthem and then joined his teammates on the sideline once it ended. Titans linebacker Nate Palmer raised a fist and looked to the sky during the anthem.
Rams linebacker Robert Quinn held up his right fist for most of the anthem. Punter Johnny Hekker had his arm around Quinn in support.
At least seven Seattle Seahawks players sat or knelt for the national anthem in Jacksonville. The group included defensive linemen Michael Bennett [url=http://www.atlantabravesteamShop.com/authentic-matt-kemp-jersey]Authentic
Matt Kemp Jersey[/url] , Sheldon Richardson, Frank Clark, Quinton Jefferson, Marcus Smith and Branden Jackson, and offensive lineman Duane Brown. All seven have sat or knelt previously.
Jared Goff and the Los Angeles Rams have jumped on top quickly in the showdown between the first two draft picks of the 2016 NFL draft.
This game between Goff and Carson Wentz’s Eagles marks just the eighth time in the Super Bowl era that quarterbacks taken No. 1 and No. 2 overall in the same draft have squared off. Goff was the first pick overall in 2016, followed by Wentz.
The No. 1 pick is 5-2 in such matchups.
Wentz and the Eagles got the ball first. But Wentz was intercepted on the third play from scrimmage [url=http://www.seahawkscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-barkevious-mingo-jersey]Barkevious

The last No. 1 vs. No. 2 matchup came on Sept. 13, 2015, when the No. 2 pick in that year’s draft, Marcus Mariota, led Tennessee to a 42-14 victory vs. Jameis Winston (No. 1) and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in their NFL debuts.
Before that, it was all the way back to 1998 [url=http://www.dolphinscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-durham-smythe-jersey]Authentic
Durham Smythe Jersey[/url] , when the top pick that year, Peyton Manning, led the Colts to a 17-12 victory against second pick Ryan Leaf and the San Diego Chargers.
Drew Bledsoe (No. 1, 1993) and Rick Mirer (No. 2) faced off three times – Mirer was with a different team each time – and Jim Plunkett (No. 1, 1971) and Archie Manning (No. 2) faced off twice.

The Minnesota Vikings have missed their chance to clinch the NFC North with both chances Sunday, starting with a 31-24 loss to Carolina. The Vikings still could’ve clinched with losses or ties by Detroit and Green Bay only to see the Lions beat Tampa Bay 24-21 and the Packers kept Cleveland winless with a 27-21 overtime victory.
Philadelphia could have clinched before its game with the Rams [url=http://www.cardinalsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-josh-rosen-jersey]Cardinals

Buffalo’s 13-7 overtime win over Indianapolis means both New England and Pittsburgh will have to win their own games to clinch playoff berths.
Kansas City beat Oakland 26-15 to take sole possession of the top of the AFC West to itself.
Chicago routed Cincinnati 33-7, and San Francisco beat Houston 26-16.
Bills rookie quarterback Nathan Peterman has been shaken up after a run and replaced by third-stringer Joe Webb in Buffalo’s game against Indianapolis.
Peterman took off to his right and dived headfirst as he was being tackled in a cloud of snow by linebacker An. [url=http://www.officialusafootballs.com/seattle-seahawks/dontae-johnson-jersey]Authentic
