Week 7 NFL Early Games

* Sam Bradford pick six on first pass attempt.

* Robert Griffin is good to his word rushing for 23 yards.

* Ryan Tannehill Pick-sixed as well. The year of the pick-six!!

* Jordan Reed already has 2 receptions for 53 yards. Rookie Bostic for the Bears is getting beat so far.

* The Falcons sack and cause Mike Glennon to fumble which is returned for a TD. Defense doing all the work so far.

* Chris Ivory getting more touches than Bilal Powell so far.

* Geno Smith with a nice, calm and composed drive and finishes it with a 12 yard touchdown pass to Jeremy Kerley.

* AJ Green catches an 82 yard touchdown from Andy Dalton. That's a whole day of fantasy goodness right there in the first quarter.

* Danny Woodhead scores on goal-line carry. That's bad news for Ryan Mathews.

* Fred Jackson down, grabbing left knee/lower leg

* Rob Gronkowski in and running a route on his first play.

* Rob Gronkowski caught his first pass of the season. He is still alive.

* Harry Douglas with 3 early receptions for 23 yards.

* Rob Gronkowski with a 30 yard reception down to the goal line.

* Brandon Bolden gets two goal line carries and gets in for the second. Stevan Ridley must be back in the dog house again.

* Gronkowski played 9 of 12 snaps (first 4, sat 3, last 5).

* Get in on the Late Games and MNF FanDuel $1500 League for just $10 right here.

* Leon Hall is shaken up for the Bengals. He's their best defensive back and was on Calvin Johnson in the end zone.

* Matthew Stafford with a 3 yard TD pass to Brandon Pettigrew after an 8 minute drive.

* Matt Forte hops over some blocked defenders for a 2 yard TD run. Great news that he got that instead of Michael Bush.

* Fred Jackson is back in the game and runs in a 3 yard touchdown.

* Geno Smith was pick-sixed for an 80 yard TD. That's the third in the NFL today.

* Leon Hall's injury is an Achilles and he's out for the rest of the game.

* Daniel Thomas and Chris Ivory getting a lot of action early over Lamar Miller and Bilal Powell.

* Jordan Reed has a hip contusion, but his return is probable. He's the only Washington player with a reception this game, 4 for 69.

* Jacquizz Rodgers catches a TD pass for 19 yards from Matt Ryan.

* Eddie Royal gets his sixth touchdown reception of the season. He made a great catch and run, diving over the pylon.

* Robert Griffin has over 50 yards rushing on 5 carries.

* C.J. Spiller continues to ask out after most plays. He's not healthy.

* Tavon Austin just had a 60 yard TD called back by a tripping call.

* Roy Helu runs for a 14 yard TD without being touched.

* Vincent Jackson makes a one handed 59 yard TD catch from Mike Glennon.

* Lamar Miller with a 30 yard run up the middle. Maybe they'll get him more looks now.

* And another Pick Six! This one from Jay Cutler to Brian Orakpo.

* Charles Clay catches a 7 yard TD from Ryan Tannehill. He has been a pleasant surprise this season.

* Daniel Thomas 6 touches, 31 yards. Lamar Miller 4 touches, 39 yards.

* 24 minutes into the Pats/Jets game, Stevan Ridley has one touch.

* Jaguars have matched their season high at home with 3 points.

* Stevan Ridley runs for a 17 yard touchdown. Good thing they decided to play him.

* Jay Cutler is down.

* Cutler is up and he is walking with slight limp off the field.

* Harry Douglas has now topped 100 yards receiving.

* Harry Douglas catches a 37 yard touchdown and is now 6-140-1. It's not even half time.

* Mike Tolbert scored a one-yard touchdown. That's what he does.

* Devin Hester 81 yard punt return TD. He ties Deion Sanders for most return touchdowns in NFL history.

* Chris Ivory has 13 carries to Powell's 3. Powell may be hurting though. 

* 12 yard TD pass from Dalton to Marvin Jones. Jones has a lot of talent. This is his 2nd TD in as many games.

* Keenan Allen with 3 catches and 67 yards at the half. He's not going anywhere.

* Terrance Williams has 3 receptions for 50 yards at half on 4 targets. Miles Austin has zero receptions on 2 targets.

* Jordan Reed catches a 3 yard TD with 27 seconds until half. He's having a huge day with 6 receptions for 87 yards and the TD.

* Ryan Tannehill throws an 18 yard touchdown to Brandon Gibson.

* Jake Locker is active.

* Your target leader at halftime is Vincent Jackson with 10.

* Your receiving leader is Harry Douglas with 140 yards and rushing leader is Robert Griffin III with 58 yards.

* Tom Brady is pick-sixed. That's around 70 pick-sixes today.

* Dallas and Philadelphia had a 55 point over/under. They have 3 points total at half.

* The Rams had the worst run defense against RBs coming into this game. Panthers RBs have 11 attempts for 17 yards.

* Doug Martin's down. Took a hard hit on a pass near the goal line.

* Cam Newton is also hurting. Derek Anderson in at QB. Cam Newton back in now.

* Jay Cutler is out for the game with a hamstring injury.

*  Keenan Allen being evaluated on sideline. Seyi Ajirotutu enters game. Blurgh.

* Andy Dalton throws a 32 yard TD to Tyler Eifert, his first TD of his career.

* Doug Martin headed to the locker room. Mike James has looked goodish this game. He would be the speculative add.

* Keenan Allen headed to locker room. Double blurgh.

* Vincent Jackson catches a 1 yard TD, his second TD of the game. That's 4 in the last two weeks. I don't think Glennon is hurting him much.

* Phillip Tanner with a 1 yard TD plunge after Dez Bryant gets the interference call in the end zone. Sad face for fantasy owners.

* James Jones is officially INACTIVE. Jarrett Boykin, Jermichael Finley and Jordy Nelson will be your target leaders.

* Rob Gronkowski has 8 receptions for 114 yards, now in overtime.

* Calvin Johnson catches a 27 yard touchdown.

* Geno Smith runs for a 8 yard touchdown.

* Zac Stacy catches a 4 yard TD from Bradford.

* Brandon Gibson catches his 2nd TD of the day, a 4 yarder from Tannehill.

* Keenan Allen is back on the sideline, wearing his helmet.

* Who needs Jay Cutler? Matt Forte runs for a 50 yard TD.

* Ryan Mathews having a good day on the ground with 14 attempts for 94 yards. Losing that goal line carry to Woodhead is a killer though.

* Cam Newton throws a 19 yard TD to Steve Smith. The old man still has moves.

* Roy Helu runs in for his 2nd TD of the day. This one a 3 yarder.

* Ryan Mathews gets in this time on a 3 yard TD. He officially is having a big day.

* Jacquizz Rodgers catches is 2nd touchdown of the day. The Falcons just needed their best players to get injured.

* Tony Romo intercepted. His second of the day.

* DeSean Jackson had his foot stepped on. He's hurting, but not sure of the severity.

* Nick Foles has looked horrible all game.

* Calvin Johnson out-jumped three Bengals for an incredible touchdown catch of 50 yards.

* Matt Forte ran his third touchdown in for a TD. This one a 6 yader.

* DeSean Jackson is back in game for Eagles.

* Cecil Shorts with 11 targets and Justin Blackmon with 4. Didn't see that coming.

* Robert Griffin throws up a floater for a 45 yard TD to Aldrick Robinson.

* Brian Quick just dropped a perfect pass that would have been a touchdown.

* Nick Foles headed to locker room. Matt Barkley next in line.

* Tony Romo finally gets on the board with a 9 yard TD pass to Terrance Williams.

* Matthew Stafford having another big day with 344 yards and 3 touchdowns.

* Sam Bradford is hurt. It doesn't look good.

* Nick Foles is out for the game. It's Barkley time.

* Cecil Shorts drops an easy TD.

* Mike Brown has 5 receptions for 120 yards in garbage time.

* Martellus Bennett TD reception after a late hit to the head by Brandon Meriweather who needs to be fined and suspended for a long time.

* 9 touches, 7 yards for CJ Spiller. He needs a week off.

* Jordan Reed is on fire today. 8/124/1 on the day.

* Two Matt Barkley drives, two interceptions.

* Vernon Davis already with a 24 yard reception.

* Roy Helu scores his 3rd TD of the day. Alfred Morris owners curl up into a corner and weep.

* Vincent Jackson had the most targets of any player this year with 22, which he caught 10 for 138 yards and two touchdowns.

* Jermichael Finley catches a 10 yard touchdown. Should be a big game for him with Jones and Cobb out.

* Le'Veon Bell off to a good start with 3 runs for 25 yards.

* Ben Roethlisberger hits Heath Miller with a shovel pass for a TD. It was only a matter of time for Miller to get his first TD of the season.

* Brandon Weeden is 1 of 7 for 19 yards and an interception.

* Jamaal Charles 1 yard TD run. His8th of the season. He has scored a TD in every game this season.

* Arian Foster in the locker room with an injury.

* Eddie Lacy 1 yard TD. He beat the browns on that drive by himself.

* Arian Foster is questionable to return with a hamstring injury.

* Case Keenum with the rainbow TD to DeAndre hopkins. Pretty pass.

* Colin Kaepernick scores on 20-yard TD run, his first rushing TD of season. He needs those to be a fantasy force.

* Arian Foster is done for the day.  Cierre Wood was a healthy scratch, so Ben Tate doesn't have a backup.

* Doug Martin had his left shoulder in a sling but said he doesn't think he suffered a shoulder separation.

* Frank Gore runs one in from 1yard for a touchdown.

* Matt Forte and Roy Helu both had 3 rushing TDs this week. Jacquizz Rodgers, Brandon Gibson, Calvin Johnson and Vincent Jackson all had two TD receptions.

* Josh Gordon out of game after being driven into ground on shoulder.

* Josh Gordon is back in the game.

* Heath Miller has the ball punched out. Ravens recover.

* Dwayne Bowe heard I dropped him so he has 4 receptions for 52 yards.

* Alex Smith runs it in on a "draw" play that may have just been a busted play, but it still counts. That was a 97 yard drive for KC. Gives their D some rest after getting beat up by Keenum.

* Nick Foles completed just 11 passes against the Cowboys.

* Frank Gore scores another goal line TD. Good news for his owners agter Dixon and Junter have been stealing TDs from him this season.

* Andy Dalton has back to back 3 TD games. He's done that one other time last year in week's 2 and 3.

* Ryan Tannehill has his first 3 TD game of the season and his career in their loss to the Bills.

* Chris Ivory ran an amazing 34 times for 104 yards (3.06 ypc). Bilal Powell just had 3 carries for 6 yards. He was probable for this game with a neck injury, so it seems like he must have reinjured his neck, but that's conjecture at this point. But picking up Ivory if he is there is prudent.

* Ben Tate is down. Greg Jones, the fullback, would be the ball carrier if he leaves the game for long.

* Ben Tate is back in the game.

* Le'Veon Bell has good vision and more burst than I realized. He's playing well against a very good Ravens D.

* Jake Locker may have been brought back too early. He's having a poor game and has a limp. They have a bye next week and are losing 24-0.

* Torrey Smith hauls in a great pass for 40+ yards.

That's it for me folks! I hope all your teams kicked some arse!
