Five-yard slant route turned into a 70-yard TD for 49ers Bruce Ellington. Chargers CB Richard Crawford and safety Adrian Philips didn't get a finger on him.

This is most likely the final time Dolphins fans will see backup quarterback and former first-round pick Josh Freeman in uniform. Freeman hasn't done enough to convince Miami to keep three quarterbacks when the team cuts to 53 players on Saturday.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien likes to see how his players react in various situations. Texans QB Tom Savage threw a pick six to the Cowboys' Corey White from out of his own end zone that tied the game at 7. Savage then fumbled on the next drive. O'Brien will be keen to see if his developing quarterback can stop the bleeding.

Rams starters played about two series as expected against Chiefs. One touchdown drive for offense and valuable extra reps for young offensive line. Best news for team? No starters with any apparent injuries of note.

It's been a rough first half for the Vikings in Nashville; kicker Blair Walsh is now 5-for-11 in the preseason after missing from 48 yards against Tennessee. The Vikings rested most of their offensive starters, and they trail the Titans 14-3.

After nine series in Cincinnati's preseason finale at Indianapolis on Thursday, QB AJ McCarron had a relatively mixed line. He left just before the fourth quarter after going 15-for-28 for 219 yards. He also was sacked four times and led two FG drives.

Patriots fans celebrate Brady ruling

There were plenty of signs throughout Gillette Stadium to celebrate that Tom Brady's suspension was overturned. However, Brady wasn't around to see much of it as he and a number of other starters were sent home before tonight's game against the Giants.

Steelers had nothing going on offensively against Panthers, failing to convert all seven third-down attempts. Pittsburgh has three first downs through two-and-a-half quarters. The Panthers lead 17-3

The Colts second, third and fourth running backs are all dealing with injuries. Boom Herron (shoulder) and Vick Ballard (hamstring) left Thursday's game against Cincy with injuries. Rookie Josh Robinson is in the concussion protocol.

When football meets futbol

Kaka, on the East Coast for international matches with Brazil, had time to snap a pic with Tim Tebow. No word on if they practiced Tebowing.

The 49ers have announced that CB Tramaine Brock (hamstring), DL Darnell Dockett (ribs), TE Vance McDonald (ankle) and WR Torrey Smith (knee) will NOT play in tonight's preseason finale against the San Diego Chargers.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Biggest Jets takeaway from the first half: QB Matt Flynn (10-for-14, 136 yards, 2 TDs) performed reasonably well for a guy who hadn't played a game since last December. He made 1 horrible decision, resulting in an interception near his goal line, but he didn't look out of place. Looks like he'll be the No. 2 for Week 1...and until Geno Smith is healthy.

Surprised to see Bryce Brown playing this deep into the game. Bills could need him if McCoy, Karlos Williams aren’t 100% — or 50% — for Wk 1

Brady's return improves Patriots' chances

According to ESPN's Football Power Index, the Patriots are now favored in each of their first four games with Brady playing and also now have a 3-in-4 chance of reaching the playoffs.

The Panthers rushed for only 276 yards in their first three preseason games. They had 205 with less than three minutes left in the first half against Pittsburgh. Rookie Cameron Artis-Payne showed why he led the SEC in rushing last season at Auburn, gaining 67 yards on 12 carries. He could be a fifth-round steal and solid insurance for starter Jonathan Stewart, who has had his share of injuries.
