Philip Rivers has been throwing passes to Antonio Gates for nine seasons now, so games like Sunday's are bound to happen. Gates had three touchdown catches, including a spectacular, one-handed grab, and the Chargers controlled the tempo to keep Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch off the field to beat the Seahawks 30-21 on Sunday.

Frank Gore ran for an 8-yard touchdown after a long scoring scamper was negated by a holding penalty, and the San Francisco 49ers had a 20-7 lead against the Chicago Bears after three quarters in a sloppy, penalty-filled game Sunday night. Five key defenders went down with injuries for Chicago: cornerbacks Sherrick McManis (quadriceps) and Charles Tillman (triceps), defensive end Trevor Scott (foot), safety Chris Conte (shoulder) and defensive tackle Jeremiah Ratliff for evaluation of a head injury. Phil Dawson kicked a 24-yard field goal for San Francisco for the only score in the third quarter.

The New England Patriots took full advantage of Adrian Peterson's absence, though he might not have made much of a difference. Six sacks, four interceptions from Matt Cassel and a blocked field goal for a touchdown doomed the Minnesota Vikings Sunday, as the Patriots breezed to a 30-7 win, coach Bill Belichick's 200th. ''I certainly never got into coaching expecting that to ever happen,'' Belichick said, ''so it is very gratifying to reach that milestone. Devin McCourty, Darrelle Revis, Logan Ryan and Dominique Easley all picked him off, setting up 17 points for the Patriots and prompting chants from the crowd for rookie Teddy Bridgewater.


Newton, defense lead Panthers over Lions 24-7 (Yahoo Sports)

Cam Newton showed he has no intention of changing the way he plays the game. The fourth-year quarterback shook off some early rust and returned to his fearless style of play, helping Carolina defeat the Detroit Lions 24-7 on Sunday, capping a distraction-filled week for the Panthers. In his first start since fracturing his ribs in a preseason game, Newton threw for 281 yards and a touchdown and ran for 19 yards on four carries, He helped the Panthers improve to 2-0 for the first time since 2008 and grab sole possession of first place in the NFC South.


Broncos fend off Chiefs 24-17 with goal-line stand (Yahoo Sports)

Hidden inside Terrance Knighton's gargantuan body listed generously at 330 pounds is a former tight end who dreams of playing offense. ''I have great ball instincts being an ex-wide receiver,'' Denver's mammoth nose tackle said after preserving the Broncos' 24-17 win over the scrappy Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. Knighton deflected Alex Smith's fourth-and-goal pass from the 2 to Dwayne Bowe with 15 seconds left. So, what would it take for Peyton Manning to have Knighton line up with him as a not-so-secret offensive weapon, like J.J. Watt did in Oakland on Sunday?

FINAL 2014 NFL Mock Draft Updated For: 5-8-2014

1.)Houston Texans(2-14): DE Jadeveon Clowney- South Carolina

 

Team Needs: QB, OL, S, OLB

 

Pick & Team Analysis: Jadeveon Clowney and JJ Watt together would be unstoppable and Texans fans are already creating a buzz and calling for it to happen. Not sure how well Clowney would fit in a 3-4 as a outside linebacker but he is certainly athletic enough to pull it off. 

Texans are a Veteran team so maybe they look to address the QB position via Free Agency (Michael Vick, Josh McCown, Josh Freeman or trade for Kirk Cousins or Ryan Mallett (A Recent Rumor That Makes A Lot Of Sense!) and drafting a QB later in the Draft would be the wiser move.

2.)fromSt. Louis Rams(3-13):

 

OT Greg Robinson- Auburn

 

Team Needs: QB, OL, LB, S, CB

 

Pick & Team Analysis: With Jake Long serious knee injury, Rams could really use Auburn Tackle Greg Robinson or Texas A&M Tackle Jake Matthews now! Rams will probably restructure Sam Bradford contract and bring him back, but also add a QB later as insurance. Robinson will likely be considered Top 2 Players in this entire Draft after more scouts study his film and see him work out, he is NASTY and he finishes Blocks.

3.)Jacksonville Jaguars(4-12):  DE/LB Khalil Mack- Buffalo

 

TEAM NEEDS: QB, DE, OL, WR, RB

 

Pick & Team Analysis: Jaguars Head Coach Gus Bradley is a defensive guy so the Jaguars could still go with the Best Defensive Player Available and try to find a QB later in the draft. Very similar to what the Seattle Seahawks did while Gus Bradley was the Defensive Coordinator their. They Drafted Bruce Irvin in the 1st Round of the 2012 NFL Draft and then was able to get Russell Wilson in the 3rd Round. Khalil Mack is a even better prospect than Bruce Irvin was coming out of West Virginia.

4.)Cleveland Browns(4-12):  WR Sammy Watkins- Clemson

 

Team Needs: QB, LB, RB, OL, WR

 

Pick & Team Analysis: On Offense they have one of the best Offensive Tackle (Joe Thomas) and Center (Alex Mack) in the NFL, as well as one of the best Receivers in the NFL in Pro Bowler Josh Gordon and a extremely athletic playmaking TE in Jordan Cameron. So this would be a great situation for a young QB like Derek Carr, Bridgewater, Johnny Manziel or Blake Bortles.

Maybe...Just Maybe New GM Ray Farmer go gets a Veteran QB to come in a compete with Brian Hoyer for the starting position next season and add yet another playmaker like Sammy Watkins at Receiver to go with Josh Gordon. With all those weapons it wouldn't really matter who was playing QB for the Browns. If they are not confident in Hoyer, then it is a great chance they can get David Carr with that 26th Pick they have from the Colts.

5.)Oakland Raiders(4-12):  QB Derek Carr- Fresno St.

 

Team Needs: WR, OL, DL, QB, S, CB

 

Pick & Team Analysis: Raiders would be taking a huge risk trading back and trying to draft Carr later, so they might have to "reach" for the guy the truly want with this pick. Raiders Owner Mark Davis is a HUGE FAN Derek Carr!

6.)Atlanta Falcons(4-12):  OT Jake Matthews- Texas A&M

 

Team Needs: DE, TE, RB, OL, DT

 

Pick & Team Analysis:

7.)Tampa Bay Buccaneers(4-12):  QB Johnny Manziel- Texas A&M

 

Team Needs: DE, TE, QB, OLB, OL

 

Pick & Team Analysis:

8.)Minnesota Vikings(5-10-1):  QB Blake Bortles- UCF

 

Team Needs: QB, DE, OL, LB, WR

 

Pick & Team Analysis:

Team Needs: OL, DE, OLB, S
