ESPN's Matthew Berry and Tim Hasselbeck say Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls is the handcuff to Marshawn Lynch, Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar catches lots of passes and Raiders QB Derek Carr has a great matchup this week.


Ian O'Connor @Ian_OConnor

I love how Philbin keeps waving at his offense to rush off the field. Like all of England, he can't stand to watch it either.

The Dolphins now have three penalties from the Jets on deep passing plays. That's been their best offensive play.

The Bears QB missed last week's game with a hamstring injury that knocked him out of Week 2. However, he won't have top WR Alshon Jeffery, who is inactive for the third straight week with a hamstring injury.


Ian O'Connor @Ian_OConnor

Dispiriting losses for Miami & Jets last week, brutal travel, & 1 coach had his team ready to play. His name isn't Joe Philbin.
