Dak Prescott's preseason is over after four drives in three games. Since the Cowboys do not play their starters in the final preseason game, Prescott will enter the Sept. 8 opener having completed 11 of 14 passes for 109 yards and a touchdown. He had his first three incompletions of the preseason against Houston but his touchdown pass to Michael Gallup, which was for 12 yards, was typical Prescott. He scrambled, fought through a tackler and found Gallup in the end zone.

A pair of Texans players were carted off in the first quarter: starting running back Lamar Miller and guard Zach Fulton. Miller was checked out on the field after he was tackled just above the left knee by Cowboys defensive tackle Maliek Collins. Fulton was hit on the next play, when quarterback Deshaun Watson was sacked.

Drew Brees made his preseason debut Saturday night — and was done after just one drive since it was so pretty. Breed immediately led the Saints to a touchdown on his first drive with a 19-yard TD pass to a well-covered Michael Thomas. Brees completed two passes to Thomas for 39 yards and two to Alvin Kamara for 29 years on the drive. Brees, Thomas, Kamara and Pro Bowl left tackle Terron Armstead all called it a night after that. As long as that quartet stays healthy, the Saints will be Super Bowl contenders.

As the Cowboys offense comes out for their third series, Jason Witten is showed on the digital board and given a nice ovation by the fans at AT&T Stadium. It's Witten's first game as a player in Arlington since the 2017 finale. He called a game for ESPN's Monday Night Football.

Are the Jets interested in Jadeveon Clowney? Because of tampering rules, GM Joe Douglas couldn't answer a direct question about the Texans' star. But, asked if he'd trade significant draft capital for a player, he said, "We're in the business of making this roster better. If the right opportunity presented itself, I certainly wouldn't shut it down." A trade is worth considering, especially with the losses at linebacker.

Bears announce they will rest all of their starters and several key backups in tonight's preseason game at Indianapolis.

Jets C Ryan Kalil is a late scratch from tonight's game, which certainly raises questions. Explaining the decision, GM Joe Douglas said they decided that four practices wasn't enough for Kalil to get ready for his debut. He said Kalil was involved in the decision. They certainly don't want to compromise QB Sam Darnold if they feel Kalil isn't ready for a game. Kalil, 35, came out of retirement on Aug. 1. The transition is taking a while.

As expected, the Bucs have signed quarterback Vincent Testaverde. Safety Justin Evans has also passed his physical and was removed from the Physically Unable to Perform list. Kahzin Daniels has been waived (knee injury).

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

The Packers released RB Darrin Hall, who had been claimed off waivers from the Bengals on July 27. GM Brian Gutekunst has been working the phones looking for another back in the trade market, according to league sources.

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

Some (possibly) good news for the Lions on the injury front. Matt Patricia said on a conference call that neither Frank Ragnow nor Jarrad Davis will be out for the season. Further, he said that Davis, who was carted off in the first quarter Friday night, is not a candidate for IR to return at this point, either. Wouldn't give a timetable for either player, though.

Overall, Kyler Murray looked sharper against the Vikings than he did last week against the Raiders. He made some beautiful throws but the only point of concern were his two throws to the end zone, both of which were long. Other than that, Murray looked to be in control. His lone designed run Saturday went for a three-yard loss.

Josh Weinfuss ESPN Staff Writer 

Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray saw his day against the Vikings end with 2:24 left in the second quarter. He finished 14-for-21 passing for 137 yards with another 9 yards rushing on four carries.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton remains in a boot and didn't practice today, staying inside for treatment. Ron Rivera remains cautiously optimistic Newton will be ready for the opener and hopes to see him on the field soon.

Kyle Allen says he working as though he will be the Panthers' starting quarterback in Week 1 even though the team is cautiously optimistic Cam Newton (foot sprain) will be ready. But as he reminds he works with that mentality every week.

Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson is not dressed for today's game. It looks like his preseason is over, which means he won't see the field again until Week 7 against the New York Giants. He's not just standing around, though. He helped the secondary coaches put the defensive backs through drills during pregame warmups.

Wow, just watched Cardinals-Vikings highlights. Anyone who was on Minnesota -4.5 should buy a Kyle Sloter jersey now.

Some context for the struggles we are seeing from the Bucs' offensive line: Dirk Koetter used a lot of max protection, which helped a lot on those long-developing plays. Bruce Arians does not. More strain on the offensive line, but more options in the passing game. The has to come out though. The quarterback has to be decisive if this is the way they want to go. Against the Browns, and perhaps if it was a regular-season game where they didn't have specific plays they wanted to see in game situations, they could have dinked and dunked more down the field (more screens to Chris Godwin, more slants to O.J. Howard).
