7. Cowboys 35, Giants 17
DAL – Kellen Moore used all of his weapons at his disposal and the presence of Ezekiel Elliott opened up all possibilities as Dak Prescott showed off why he deserves to get in on the spending spree of Jerry Jones. The result was the most balance we’ve seen for the Cowboys in the Dak Prescott era. Also, Michael Gallup has officially entered the WR2 market.
NYG – Buried early, the Giants played to expectations. Evan Engram led the team in targets, receptions and yards. It seems like it’s just a matter of time when Daniel Jones takes over at quarterback once the G-Men are out of contention.
8. Bills 17, Jets 16
BUF – It took the Bills nearly the entire game to get in an offensive set that was productive, but it involved Devin Singletary. John Brown and Cole Beasley received 19 targets between the two of them but Josh Allen’s scrambling continues to be the team’s most effective way to move the ball.
NYJ – Sabotaged by rookie kicker Kaare Vedvik, the Jets looked decent against a tough Bills team defense. Le’Veon Bell reminded us again of his versatility and Jamison Crowder emerged as a big PPR target. However, it must be remembered that Robby Anderson was swallowed up by shutdown corner Tre’Davious White.
9. Chargers 30, Colts 24
IND – Jacoby was efficient with his passing game as Marlon Mack dominated the touches. T.Y. Hilton didn’t have the yardage but was money whenever he got the ball. The shocking stat of the day was Adam Vinatieri missing two field goals and an extra point.
LAC – The Chargers looked the same except it was Austin Ekeler’s name called instead of Melvin Gordon. That will likely be the case until at least November, also it was great seeing Hunter Henry back in the huddle.
