-- Cardinals 30, Raiders 23 --
Sun Aug 30, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

AP reports even though QB Carson Palmer spent much of the first half on his back and running from the Oakland defense, Arizona HC Bruce Arians is not concerned about his offensive line. Palmer was sacked three times and threw two interceptions before the Cardinals rallied in the second half to beat the Raiders 30-23 on Sunday night when RB Marion Grice ran for an 11-yard score with 31 seconds left. "Pass protection is not an issue," Arians said. "We've got to do a better job of getting the ball out of our hands sometimes. I thought we held it a little bit longer today." Palmer struggled against his former team as he was under pressure for most of the first half. Palmer was 8 for 22 for 103 yards and was intercepted twice by S Nate Allen. Palmer also was sacked three times, including twice by Khalil Mack. The Raiders (1-2) got five field goals from PK Sebastian Janikowski in the first half but didn't get into the end zone until QB Matt McGloin led an 83-yard drive late in the fourth quarter. He capped it with a 4-yard TD pass to WR Kris Durham with 2:18 left and Oakland tied the game when McGloin connected with WR Brice Butler on the 2-point conversion. Carr finished 18 for 34 for 213 yards but was unable to lead the Raiders into the end zone. Raiders: Amari Cooper had four catches for 62 yards, including a 36-yarder against Arizona star CB Patrick Peterson.

-- Texans 27, Saints 13 --
Sun Aug 30, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

AP reports QB Brian Hoyer led scoring drives on two of his three series on Sunday, and the Houston Texans went on to a 27-13 preseason victory over the inconsistent and undisciplined New Orleans Saints. All three Houston quarterbacks led scoring drives. QB Ryan Mallett threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to rookie WR Jaelen Strong, and afterward downplayed the anger he'd expressed at the initial news that Hoyer was named the starter over him. Houston's third-string quarterback, QB Tom Savage hit rookie WR Chandler Worthy for a 6-yard score in the fourth quarter. Hoyer finished 7 of 11 for 82 yards. Mallett was 9 of 17 for 77 yards, and Savage finished 5 of 7 for 58 yards. Houston took the lead for good on its first offensive series, capped by RB Alfred Blue's 1-yard run. The Saints (0-3) outgained the Texans (2-1), 393 yards to 292 yards, with New Orleans reserve RB Edwin Baker scoring on a 45-yard run. QB Drew Brees marched the Saints 75 yards for a field goal on his lone series, completing his first four passes for 40 yards before his last two fell incomplete inside the 20. QB Josh McCown spent much of the day at quarterback for New Orleans, going 8 of 14 for 117 yards. But his fourth-down pass from the Houston 2, intended for WR Josh Morgan, was batted down by rookie CB Kevin Johnson.

-- Broncos 19, 49ers 12 --
Sun Aug 30, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

AP reports QB Peyton Manning says he'd like to have played more this summer -- and better. He swears he's not worried. "I think we can still win games as we're developing the identity," Manning said Saturday night when Denver rode its stifling defense and good ground game to a 19-12 win over the sputtering San Francisco 49ers. Manning was doomed by protection problems and an interception in the end zone one week after penalties and dropped passes kept him from finding any rhythm. He was 14 for 21 for 124 yards and was sacked three times, twice by LB NaVorro Bowman. RB Juwan Thompson scored the game's only touchdown on a 1-yard run with 2:04 left that erased a 12-11 deficit. The Broncos (3-0) reached the 20-yard line three times when Manning was in the game, but managed only a pair of PK Brandon McManus field goals. CB Kenneth Acker intercepted Manning's underthrown pass to WR Demaryius Thomas in the end zone. 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick struggled again, failing to complete a pass until the final minute of the first half, which ended with Denver ahead 8-3. He was just 2 of 6 for 13 yards and scrambled three times for 53 yards.

-- Colts 24, Rams 14 --
Sun Aug 30, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

AP reports QB Andrew Luck's first touchdown pass of the preseason helped get the Indianapolis Colts off to a fast start. The quarterback also took the blame for a lost fumble on his final play that handed over the lead. It was that kind of game for the Colts, who didn't exactly find their stride but had enough to beat the St. Louis Rams 24-14 on Saturday night. Rams QB Nick Foles got his first TD pass in Week 3, too, hitting WR Chris Givens in stride on a 44-yard play in the second quarter for the Rams (0-3). "I still expect more from myself and I expect more from this offense, as does every player on this offense," Foles said. "But I feel like it's one step in the right direction and we just have to continue to improve on it." PK Adam Vinatieri had a big day for the Colts (1-2), hitting field goals on the first and last possessions of the half, plus his successful onside kick led to WR Andre Johnson's 32-yard reception for a 10-0 lead midway through the first quarter. Then he put it out of reach with a 55-yarder with 2:53 left. Luck was 12 for 21 for 161 yards and still has no interceptions in the preseason. He was 10 for 15 for 114 yards the first two games. Foles was 10 for 11 for 128 yards with no interceptions.

-- Eagles 39, Packers 26 --
Sun Aug 30, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

AP reports shaking off rust, QB Sam Bradford was 10 of 10 for 121 yards and three touchdowns in his most extensive action in exhibition play, and the Philadelphia Eagles (3-0) stayed perfect in the preseason with a 39-26 win on Saturday night over the Green Bay Packers. Acquired in the offseason from St. Louis, Bradford is coming back from tearing his ACL twice in a 10-month span while with the Rams. He kept HC Chip Kelly's offense humming against the Packers' first-team defense. Any doubts about Bradford's health appeared to be answered to Kelly. "I didn't have any doubts on Sam, so I'm not concerned what people outside think," he said. Bradford led three drives before giving way to backup QB Mark Sanchez in the second quarter. Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, the NFL MVP, didn't play. He watched the game in sweats from the sideline with three starting offensive linemen already held out because of injuries. Backup QB Scott Tolzien missed practice this week after being watched for a possible concussion, so rookie QB Brett Hundley got the start. The fifth-round draft pick was 22 of 31 for 315 yards and two touchdowns, improving as the game went on and more backups took the field. For the Eagles, Sanchez was pretty good, too, going 13 of 19 for 150 yards and two scores. The Eagles led 25-0 after the first quarter and 39-14 at the half.

Sun Aug 30, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports the New York Jets can breathe a sigh of relief about rookie DE Leonard Williams (knee). The first-round pick was forced from Saturday night’s victory over the Giants with a knee injury. X-rays taken on Saturday night came back negative and there are multiple reports that a subsequent MRI showed no ligament damage. Williams has been diagnosed with a muscle strain behind his knee and the team does not believe it will be a long-term injury. Williams will have two weeks to recover before the Jets start the regular season with a game against the Browns.

-- Seahawks 16, Chargers 15 --
Sun Aug 30, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

AP reports facing a 60-yard field goal attempt on a steamy evening with 16 seconds left and his Seattle Seahawks trailing by two, PK Steven Hauschka's mindset was to just swing away. His kick barely cleared the crossbar, lifting the Seattle Seahawks to a 16-15 exhibition victory against the San Diego Chargers on Saturday night. He missed a 58-yard attempt a few minutes earlier. He also made field goals of 40 and 27 yards. PK Nick Novak, competing for a job with rookie PK Josh Lambo, kicked a 52-yard field goal midway through the fourth quarter to give San Diego a 15-13 lead. Novak also made a 32-yarder goal in the first quarter. Seahawks rookie WR Tyler Lockett returned a punt 67 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter. He also returned a kickoff 103 yards for a score in the opener. Chargers QB Philip Rivers, who didn't play against Arizona a week earlier, completed 13 of 19 passes for 140 yards. He was sacked twice and hit four times. Rookie RB Melvin Gordon ran 14 times for 34 yards, an average of 2.4 yards. Seahawks QB Russell Wilson was 7 of 15 for 56 yards.

-- Redskins 31, Ravens 13 --
Sun Aug 30, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

AP reports HC Jay Gruden intends to judge the health of QB Robert Griffin III (head) before choosing his starting quarterback in the regular season. If RG III can't go, then QB Kirk Cousins is more than happy to take his place atop the Redskins' depth chart. Cousins filled in capably for Griffin on Saturday night, throwing for 190 yards and a touchdown as Washington beat the Baltimore Ravens 31-13. With Griffin sidelined by a concussion, Cousins went 20 for 27 with an interception to help the Redskins take a 14-13 halftime lead. His second TD pass of the preseason came on a deflection plucked out of the air and carried into the end zone. QB Colt McCoy started the third quarter for Washington (3-0) and produced touchdowns on his first two drives, although both scores came against Ravens reserves and the last march covered only 20 yards following an interception. McCoy completed 10 of 12 passes for 95 yards and two TDs, both to WR Rashad Ross. Ravens QB Joe Flacco went 8 for 13 for 137 yards and a touchdown in what was likely his final tuneup before the regular-season opener at Denver. He also had a touchdown pass to TE Crockett Gilmore waved off because of a penalty.

-- Bengals 21, Bears 10 --
Sun Aug 30, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

AP reports QB Andy Dalton's sore neck gave QB A.J. McCarron a chance for his first NFL keepsake. Dalton sneaked in for a touchdown on Cincinnati's opening drive, then came out of the game as a precaution with a sore neck on Saturday night during a 21-10 preseason victory over the Chicago Bears. On Saturday, he completed all six of his passes during a 16-play, 77-yard drive that consumed 9 minutes, 11 seconds. Dalton finished it with a sneak from inside the 1-yard line, emerged from the pile and spiked the ball. When Dalton reached the sideline, he took off his helmet and HC Marvin Lewis decided to keep him there because he had a sore neck. Dalton didn't go for treatment, staying on the sideline for the rest of the first half. "It was just being at the bottom of a pile and not being able to move," Dalton said. "If it was the regular season, I would've stayed in a played. It was just being cautious." McCarron was impressive during his first stint with the starting offense. He completed his first seven passes, including a 31-yard throw to WR Marvin Jones for his first professional TD pass. He kept the ball, cradling it under his left arm as he jogged off the field. Bengals quarterbacks completed their first 13 passes against the Bears (2-1), who again failed to get a touchdown out of their starting offense. QB Jay Cutler played the first half and one series in the second half, leading Chicago to a field goal. The Bears' offense has managed five field goals and no touchdowns in the preseason. Cutler was 13 of 17 for 98 yards without an interception before he was replaced by QB Jimmy Clausen. The starting offense got six first downs and 123 yards on 29 plays. Bears RB Matt Forte carried six times for 16 yards. The Bears' running game managed only 67 yards on 18 carries, an average of 3.7 yards. Bengals RB Jeremy Hill had 46 yards on 11 carries with a touchdown, an average of 4.2 yards per rush.

-- Tre Mason Strains Hamstring --
Sun Aug 30, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason left last night’s game against the Colts with a hamstring strain, creating some doubt about his availability for week #1. NBC Sports adds rookie RB Todd Gurley (knee) is not expected to play in the opener after tearing his ACL last November, so that could stretch the depth there. The Rams still have RB Isaiah Pead and RB Benny Cunningham, so there are still some serviceable options.

ESPN reports Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (neck) left Saturday night's 21-10 preseason win over the Chicago Bears with a neck injury that appeared to have happened on his first and only series of the night. Dalton capped the 16-play drive with a 1-yard touchdown dive that came on fourth-and-goal. He took a couple hard hits as he fell forward for the score. "He's fine," Bengals HC Marvin Lewis said at halftime through a member of the team's media relations department. "Taking him out was just precautionary."

-- Dolphins Injury Update --
Sun Aug 30, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

The Miami Herald reports multiple team sources say that Dolphins OT Branden Albert (knee) absolutely, positively remains on a time table to be ready for the regular season opener and that even if a setback or caution precludes the left tackle from playing in that game, he definitely will not be out until Week 3 of the season. Earlier Saturday, ESPN reported Albert would not be ready until Week 3. C Mike Pouncey (knee), meanwhile, was wearing a brace on his left knee when he was found him at his locker stall after the game. Relax, he is expected to be fine and ready to play in the regular-season opener against the Washington Redskins Sept. 13, per multiple sources. "I'm not too concerned about it," Pouncey said. "We've got an MRI set for the morning. Basically a guy fell on it but I'm not too concerned about it." Pouncey came to the sideline after it happened than returned to the game. Bad decision. "I thought I was OK when I came to the sideline and wanted to go back into the game to test it out," he said. "Once I realized I couldn't play on it I came out." Pouncey said he's not concerned about the injury. "I'll be back at practice next week," he said. "I ain't missing no game so you don't have to worry about that."

Sun Aug 30, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

ESPN reports QB Philip Rivers appeared to suffer a hand injury against the Seattle Seahawks in the San Diego Chargers' preseason game at Qualcomm Stadium on Saturday. After returning to the sideline after halftime, Rivers told CBS sideline reporter Tracy Wolfson he was fine. “It’s good, it’s good. I banged it, wasn’t real sure," River said. "You immediately think it’s the worst. But all is good; had it been a regular season game I would still be rolling.”
