Three of those teams - the New Orleans Saints, Los Angeles Rams and Minnesota Vikings - lead the way in this week's Pick Six. "I was real happy for them".
Notable: The Seahawks held Cardinals running back Adrian Peterson to 29 yards rushing on 21 carries.
It's incredible to think how far the Rams have come in the space of a single season.
The team's owners, John Mara and Steve Tisch, issued a joint statement, via Ian Rapoport of NFL Media Monday, to make it clear they won't do anything until after the season. "He's very into it, and he has something to prove, for sure". But it will be fun to watch them go at it in the NFC playoffs. Sunday's loss was the Giants' first to a team with no wins and at least nine losses since November 20, 1966, when they fell to the 0-9 Falcons, 27-16, in Atlanta's first season.
Staley wasn't the only Niners player who was thrilled with the win. "Mainly the quarterback, but also the O-Line, the receivers and the backs".
Host Dan Patrick added that the Giants, who seem to think "tackling is optional", are off to their worst start since 1980. "We have to address what happened out here on the field today, take a look at the tape and be honest with each other".
Shanahan has been tasked with turning around a team that won just two games last season. The loss of Elliott stings, but if Smith is gone for a significant period of time, America's Team is in serious trouble.
Seattle Seahawks poised to bring back cornerback Byron Maxwell
While he finished with 53 tackles, two interceptions and 15 passes defensed, he was benched for inconsistent play. Maxwell, who worked out for the club on Monday, was selected by Seattle in the sixth round of the 2011 draft.
But the New York Giants have yet to remove their head coach from his position despite a 1-8 record that was made worse after a Week 10 loss to the San Francisco 49ers, who entered the game 0-9 on the season. By the time I see them every Wednesday, it's like the first game of the year. The players have stood behind McAdoo in recent weeks, despite their performance on the field and an anonymous report from ESPN last week saying that he had lost the locker room.
There have been a lot of depressing aspects of the National Football League season, but the 2017 Giants might be the saddest.
The good news for Cleveland?
New England's 41-16 win in Denver was a credit to Belichick, who appears to have stopped the bleeding on the defensive side of the ball.
"There's no way anything you guys hear reported could be accurate because I just told you guys our plan, which is we're going to evaluate when it gets to that time, so it depends where Jimmy is at at that time", Shanahan said.
It was the second straight week the Giants' defense did not show up.
