  • The Chiefs’ Jordan Lucas had four tackles in the Chiefs’ 31-13 victory.

  • The Patriots’ Chris Hogan had three catches for 13 yards on five targets in the Patriots’ 41-28 victory over the Chargers.

  • The Eagles’ Stefen Wisniewski played at right guard after Brandon Brooks left with an injury. Wisniewski led the push on Nick Foles’ QB sneak touchdown to give the defending Super Bowl champions a 14-0 advantage, and combined with the rest of the offensive line to not allow a sack the entire game. Despite his efforts, the Eagles fell to the Saints 20-14.

Other news:

  • The Seahawks signed Sam Ficken to a reserve/futures contract. Ficken will be a part of the team’s roster on March 13.
