13. Lions 27, Cardinals 27
DET – T.J. Hockenson chose to go down a path few rookie tight ends have ever ventured and was an immediate factor, leading his team in receiving yards. Danny Amendola was also a surprise producer, pushing down the Marvin Jones and Kenny Golladay down the pecking order.
ARI – The Cardinals were dead in the water until the end of the game when everything just went Arizona’s way. The veterans helped lift up Kyler Murray put on a magic show and steal victory away from the Lions and force overtime. While it wasn’t a total victory, there was something the Cardinals can build on.
14. 49ers 31, Buccaneers 17
SFO – It wasn’t a pretty performance by the Niners’ offense but they got the job done as a team. George Kittle continues to be the consistent star on offense and everyone stayed healthy for the most part. Tevin Coleman owners will want to monitor his latest injury.
TAM – Bad Jameis Winston reared his ugly head as turnovers plagued him again as the Niners’ secondary put the clamps on Mike Evans.
