The Texans lost Torrey Smith in coverage, and the Ravens WR ended up wide open in the end zone, where Joe Flacco connected with him for a career-high ninth receiving TD of the year for Smith, cutting Houston's lead to 16-7.

The Bucs stop the Packers on 4th-and-goal as Green Bay attempted to go up 17-3. Instead, Tampa Bay gets the ball on downs at the 1.
Joe Flacco was just 3-18 (16.7% completion percentage) in the first half. That's the worst completion percentage in a half for any QB in 2014 (min. 10 attempts).
Johnny Manziel left late in the first half with a hamstring injury and Brian Hoyer remains under center as the Browns take the field for the second half, trailing the Panthers, 10-3.
