Vikings coach Leslie Frazier hasn't given up hope that WR Greg Childs (torn patellar tendons, I.R.) will help the team in the future.

"We think he's going to be a good player for us [in the future]," said Frazier. "Jarius Wright [Childs' Arkansas teammate] has come on for us here of late, and we're hoping he's going to turn out to be a good player." Childs was once a massive talent, but he's facing long odds after tearing both patellar tendons -- his right one for the second time.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Darren Sproles suffered a broken arm Week 3 against the Giants.

Sproles will undergo an MRI on Monday to confirm the diagnosis, but it looks like he is going to miss several weeks. RapSheet believes he is a candidate for injured reserve. With Sproles out, LeGarrette Blount, Wendell Smallwood, and Corey Clement shared snaps against the Giants. Smallwood would figure to see the biggest boost in playing time with Sproles sidelined, but this likely will prove to be an unpredictable timeshare.

Phillip Rivers completed 20-of-40 passes for 237 yards with three interceptions Sunday in the Chargers’ Week 3 loss to the Chiefs.

Rivers nearly had a fourth interception off a deflected pass in the fourth quarter, though the call was changed to an incompletion on review. Either way, it was a dismal performance from Rivers, who was picked off three times in the first half and never showed even the slightest semblance of rhythm with any of his receivers. A gunslinger if there ever was one, Rivers insisted on challenging the Chiefs with deep passes downfield, an approach that backfired spectacularly. Rivers has now thrown an incredible 21 interceptions over his last 12 games going back to last season. It will be hard to trust him even in an inviting home matchup against the Eagles next week.

Kareem Hunt cruised to 172 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries while adding one catch for 11 yards Sunday in the Chiefs’ Week 3 win over the Chargers.

Another week, another stellar performance by Hunt, who has gone over 100 yards from scrimmage in all three games this year. He’s the first rookie to begin his career with three straight 100-yard games since Matt Forte did the same thing back in 2008. The Chargers had no answer for Hunt, who spent the afternoon breaking off chunk gains with little to no resistance. He saved his best for last, icing the game with a masterful 61-yard touchdown dash in the fourth quarter. Through three weeks, Hunt has averaged an absurd 8.53 yards per carry with six touchdowns. He’s also on pace for 2,138 rushing yards, which would break Eric Dickerson’s single-season record set in 1983. And to think that if Spencer Ware hadn’t torn his PCL, Hunt could be buried on the bench right now. The Toledo product will look to continue his incredible run next week on Monday Night Football against the Redskins.

Geronimo Allison caught 6-of-8 targets for 122 yards in the Packers' Week 3 win over the Bengals.

With Randall Cobb (chest) out, Allison operated as the No. 3 receiver behind Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams. His eight targets were third on the team behind Ty Montgomery (12) and Nelson (9). Allison did have a bad drop late in the fourth quarter but more than made up for it with a tough sideline catch on the same drive and then getting loose for the big 72-yard gain in overtime on a free play that set up the winning field goal two plays later. Cobb may not be ready to return on a short week, so Allison could have some WR4/FLEX appeal Thursday night against the Bears.

Thomas Rawls was held without a touch in Seattle's Week 3 loss to the Titans.

Per Pro Football Focus' snap guru Nathan Jahnke, Rawls was on the field for one play. Eddie Lacy played zero snaps. Chris Carson was the Seahawks' feature back, with C.J. Prosise handling passing downs. We'd imagine Rawls will typically get a touch or two, but this looks to be Carson's backfield for the foreseeable future. Rawls is droppable in 10-12 team leagues.

Jordy Nelson caught 6-of-9 targets for 52 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers' Week 3 win over the Bengals.

Green Bay's offense was stuck in the mud the entire first half, as they managed just 73 passing yards and saw Aaron Rodgers get sacked five times. But things heated up after the break, with Nelson scoring two touchdowns to bring the Packers back from a 14-point deficit. His first was a wide-open busted coverage and the second a perfectly-thrown out route where only Nelson could catch it. It came with 17 seconds left to force overtime. Nelson appeared to avoid setbacks with his quad injury and will be a shoo-in WR1 on Thursday night against the Bears.

Joe Mixon rushed 18 times for 62 yards in the Bengals' Week 3 loss to the Packers.

He caught all three of his targets for an additional 39 yards. After seeing touch totals of 11 and 10 in Weeks 1 and 2, new OC Bill Lazor committed to Mixon in this one. Jeremy Hill got eight touches, and Giovani Bernard only five but scored a touchdown. The three mixed and matched early on, but Mixon was the one in the backfield most of the second half. He wasn't able to break any big plays, but Mixon showed his patience and make-them-miss skills a number of times. It's safe to say Mixon is a comfortable RB2 moving forward under Lazor. The Browns are next on the schedule.

A.J. Green caught 10-of-13 targets for 111 yards and one touchdown in the Bengals' 27-24, Week 3, overtime loss to the Packers.

The squeaky wheel got the grease in predictable fashion. Green's words after the Week 2 loss to the Texans at home played a large part in the firing of OC Ken Zampese. New play-caller Bill Lazor made it a point to scheme the ball to Green with quick passes. Green's 10-yard touchdown got the scoring started in the first quarter. It was a perfect dart from Andy Dalton. Green started slow but should be in for a big rest of the season. He gets the Browns on the road in Week 4.

Aaron Rodgers completed 28-of-42 passes for 313 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception in the Packers' 27-24, Week 3, overtime win over the Bengals.

Rodgers was sacked five times in the first half and went into the locker room with just 73 yards passing, a touchdown, and a pick-six. The pick-six was jumped by CB Williams Jackson on an out route, and the Packers' pieced-together OL couldn't block Carl Lawson and friends. It was a whole different story after the break. Rodgers rallied the Pack back from a two-touchdown hole with a pair of touchdown strikes to Jordy Nelson, the second coming with 17 seconds left to tie the game. In OT, Rodgers got the Bengals to jump offside, and he found a streaking Geronimo Allison down the sideline for 72 yards to set up the game-winning field goal. Rodgers next gets the Bears at home this coming Thursday night.

DeMarco Murray rushed 14 times for 115 yards and a touchdown in the Titans' Week 3 win over the Seahawks, adding a five-yard reception.

Nursing a bulky hamstring, Murray surprisingly got the start. He spent the first half brickwalling into the Seahawks' stout front seven. Having him lace up was looking like a foolish decision from the Titans. Then he went bonkers after the break, with the play of the day being his game-sealing, 75-yard touchdown run late in the third quarter. Murray found the edge, then followed a caravan as he reversed fields. The marathon run made for easily his best game of the season. Murray has still yet to top 14 carries, but remains ahead of Derrick Henry. He'll be on the RB1/2 borderline for next week's game against the Texans.
Sep 24 - 7:42 PM

Russell Wilson completed 29-of-49 passes for 373 yards, four touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Seahawks' 33-27, Week 3 loss to the Titans.

Wilson added seven carries for 26 yards. The Seahawks were once again mired in offensive misery until the their final drive of the first half, where Wilson marched them 86 yards in 49 seconds. From that point on, it was raining points and yards. In fact, Wilson's 373 yards were a new career high. He got cooking once the Seahawks abandoned the run and went fast-paced behind their awful offensive line. The performance was especially encouraging since it came on the road. Headed home against the lowly Colts, Wilson will be a high-upside QB1 for Week 4.
