He did fumble a snap in the first half at Philadelphia’s 1, but recovered it and plunged forward for a touchdown, with the help of a push from running back Matt Jones.



Philadelphia’s DeMarco Murray, who missed last week’s victory over the Jets with a leg injury, gained just 36 yards on eight carries in the Eagles’ 23-20 loss at Washington and voiced disappointment with the way he’s being used by coach Chip Kelly.

We’ve just got to work on him taking that car out of neutral when he’s running.” — Carolina’s Cam Newton on 255-pound tight end Ed Dickson, who recovered a fumble and rumbled 57 yards for a TD in the Panthers’ 37-23 victory over Tampa Bay.

Then I saw a flag on the field and said, ‘Oh, OK, let’s try again.’ Fortunately I had a second chance.” — San Diego’s Josh Lambo, who kicked a 34-yard field goal to win it 30-27, moments after getting another chance when Cleveland was offside on his missed 39-yard attempt with 2 seconds left.
