For the fourth time in AT&T Stadium history a punt hit the center-hung digital board. Houston Texans punter Shane Lechler drilled a kick into the middle of the board with 13:09 remaining in the game. By rule the Texans had to re-kick and got the ball back after a muffed punt. In 2009 A.J. Trapasso was the first to hit the board. The Cowboys' Chris Jones hit it in 2013 and '14. Only one time has it happened in a regular season game.

Titans flub extra point snap. K Ryan Succop retrieves. Lobs a prayer. Rookie DE Angelo Blackson, listed at 318 pounds, runs under it for fantastic over the shoulder 2-point conversion catch. Undone, sadly, by illegal man downfield.

An ugly, ugly finish to Saints' preseason finale as 10-0 lead turned into 38-10 loss to Packers. But keep in mind, the guys who struggled most this summer aren't supposed to play. The starters looked decent all summer -- scored every time Drew Brees was on the field. The biggest concern is the DB injuries to Jairus Byrd and Keenan Lewis.

Tim Tebow throws nice TD pass

Eagles QB Tim Tebow connected with Rasheed Bailey for an 18-yard touchdown against the Jets as he tries to make the final roster.


James Walker ESPN Staff Writer 

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.

Tania Ganguli ESPN Staff Writer 

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.

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

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.

Ben Goessling ESPN Staff Writer 

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.

Coley Harvey ESPN Staff Writer 

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
