The Cardinals' offense is still trying to find its way after a day of taking bite-sized yardage chunks just outside the Big Apple. Arizona's defense appears to be in top form after devouring the New York Giants. The Cardinals' voracious defense made up for their inconsistent offense in a 27-21 win on a rainy Sunday, producing eight sacks and three turnovers.

The past three weeks haven't been the greatest for rookie quarterback Daniel Jones and the New York Giants. Jones and the offense have averaged 229 yards in those games, scored four touchdowns and turned the ball over eight times, with the sixth pick overall in the NFL draft throwing five interceptions and losing two fumbles. Jones lost two fumbles and threw an interception in Sunday's 27-21 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

The scheduling gods threw fantasy owners a bone in Week 8 at least—the Bears play host to a reeling Los Angeles Chargers team that ranks inside the top 10 in fantasy points allowed to team defenses this year. But the days of Chicago being a no-brainer matchup-proof must-start, for now at least, may be over. THE NO-DOUBTERS Pittsburgh Steelers (vs.

With their Sunday home loss to the Arizona Cardinals, the New York Giants have lost three straight games, falling to 2-5. Rookie quarterback Daniel Jones has struggled during the stretch, but he won't be losing his job. Pat Shurmur isn't considering another QB change Meeting with media on Monday, Giants head coach Pat Shurmur was asked if, in light of Jones' recent issues, he's considering pulling him for veteran Eli Manning.

The New England Patriots were turned down by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after inquiring about a potential trade for tight end O.J. Howard, according to a published report Monday. Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer reported that the Patriots reached out to the Buccaneers as they attempt to find a new threat at tight end following the offseason retirement of Rob Gronkowski. New England already asked, and was told no on, Buccaneers tight end OJ Howard," Breer wrote.

Last December, when Kenyan Drake completed the Miracle In Miami — a wildly improbable kick return to beat a despised rival in the New England Patriots — there was seemingly little to threaten Adam Gase as head coach of the Miami Dolphins. Three losses and 22 days later, Gase was fired. When I think about Jason Garrett coming out of the Dallas Cowboys' uplifting 37-10 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, the Miracle In Miami creeps into my head because in some years, the ultimate statement about a season is only defined by what happens in January and beyond.

Ezekiel Elliott powered into the Philadelphia secondary and simply ran over safety Malcolm Jenkins. The apparent 14-yard touchdown run by the star Dallas running back was overturned on review because his knee was down at the 1 - but the message had been sent early in a game with the division lead on the line. The Cowboys (4-3) are back in control of the NFC East after ending a three-game losing streak that clouded the high expectations for the defending division champions following a 3-0 start.

Aaron Rodgers was off to a good but not especially amazing start to the season entering Week 7, which was disappointing with Mike McCarthy gone. Then he erupted Sunday, becoming just the third player in NFL history (and only the second in the Super Bowl era) to record 400+ passing yards with five TD passes and a rushing score in a single game, as Rodgers went off for nearly 50 fantasy points despite missing Davante Adams and with Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison both hobbled to the point of nearly not being able to play. The 35 year old signal caller got 13.8 YPA and finished with a perfect Passer Rating, and it almost seemed as if Matt LaFleur was going out of his way to pad Rodgers' stats with all of the pass plays he called around the goal line (he entered with the third-most pass attempts inside the 10-yard line this season).

Rushing - Chase Edmonds, Cardinals, rushed for career highs of 126 yards and three touchdowns in Arizona's 27-21 victory over the New York Giants. Dalvin Cook, Vikings, had 142 yards rushing and two TDs on 25 carries in Minnesota's 42-30 win at Detroit. Leonard Fournette, Jaguars, ran for 131 yards on 29 attempts to help Jacksonville top Cincinnati 27-17.
