RECAPPING NFL WEEKEND

By Marc Lawrence, PlaybookSports.com — A quick spin around last week’s NFL games found

• Miami led 30-0 at the half before coasting to a 30-15 win over hapless Houston. The Dolphins’ team win total was 30.5. Ouch.

• The Bengals and Titans were tied 13-all when Cincinnati finally woke up. The Bengals were constantly starting in bad field position because of penalties on special teams.

• There were just 14 seconds remaining on the clock, but that didn’t bother Lamar Jackson, who completed a 12-yard pass following a nice kickoff return. This set up Justin Tucker with a 67-yard field goal. The kick was straight, but just a hair shy, allowing the Jacksonville to pull the upset.

• San Francisco made plenty of mistakes and seemed discombobulated at times. RB Christian McCaffrey was a major disappointment in this game. He rushed for just 32 yards on 11 carries, and he caught four passes for only 17 receiving yards. Yet the Niners won, 13-0.
