BRONCOS 23, VIKINGS 20 (FINAL): In what was both an impressive comeback and a missed opportunity, the Vikings' struggles protecting Teddy Bridgewater loomed large. Bridgewater was sacked seven times in the loss, including two on the Vikings' final drive, and his impressive second half (13 of 15 for 131 yards) went for naught.

RAMS 24, CARDINALS 22 (FINAL): Just when the Rams needed the offense to pick up the slack, their slumbering run game came to life behind rookie RB Todd Gurley and WR Tavon Austin. Combined with a defense that held the Cardinals to field goals instead of touchdowns five times and came up with three takeaways, the Rams improved to 2-2 and 2-0 in the NFC West division.

PACKERS 17, 49ERS 3 (Final): A game first-half effort by the Niners disintegrated after halftime as the Packers simply wore them down. How dispiriting was it?
