Emmanuel Sanders posts career-high 149 receiving yards in Week 3
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10:17 pm ET) Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders got off to a fast start, receiving a ton of targets in Sunday's Super Bowl rematch against Seattle.

With the focus on Demaryius Thomas, Sanders shined as Peyton Manning's primary target. He came down with a 42-yard grab on the final drive of the day, which led to the touchdown that sent the game to overtime. He caught 11 of the 15 passes thrown his way for 149 yards in a 26-20 overtime loss -- all a career-high for the 27-year-old.

Sanders has surpassed the 100-yard mark in back-to-back games. The Broncos will get a week of rest before returning to action in Week 5 at home against Arizona.


Wes Welker has six grabs in first game back from suspension
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10:10 pm ET) Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker checked in as the third receiver in the second quarter of Week 3 in Seattle, his first game back from suspension.

Welker caught passes for 3 and 9 yards on that drive for his only grabs in the first half. However, he bounced back and earned a bigger role in the aerial attack in the second half, receiving six targets in the final two quarters. Welker caught six of the eight passes thrown his way for 60 yards in a 26-20 overtime defeat.

The Broncos have a bye week, so Welker will get a full week of rest before squaring off at home against the Cardinals in Week 5.


Demaryius Thomas makes a couple of pivotal catches in OT loss
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10:05 pm ET) Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas worked through a sore foot injury and still managed to make some big plays in Week 3 overtime loss to the Seahawks.

The 26-year-old got off to a dreadful start on Sunday, as he was held without a grab in the first half. He came down with an 11-yard reception with just over a minute remaining in the third quarter for his first grab of the day.

Down eight points, Thomas converted a pivotal third down with under 30 remaining, which led to a Peyton Manning touchdown to Jacob Tamme on the following play. Thomas kept his feet in bounds near the back of the end zone for a spectacular catch for a two-point conversion following the touchdown, which sent the game to overtime.

Thomas, who was covered by Richard Sherman through most of the afternoon, finished with four catches for 31 yards. He was targeted 12 times in a 26-20 defeat. Thomas has not racked up more than 65 receiving yards in a game this season. He'll get a bye week before facing the Cardinals at home in Week 5.


Daniel Thomas, Damien Williams held in check vs. Chiefs
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9:58 pm ET) Dolphins backup running backs Daniel Thomas and Damien Williams both took a backseat to Lamar Miller in a Week 3 loss to the Chiefs. Thomas was limited to two carries for 15 yards on the ground, and tacked on a 21-yard reception in a 34-15 defeat. Williams was held to just one carry for minus-3 yards.

Bengals expect Marvin Jones back after bye
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9:56 pm ET) Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said receiver Marvin Jones, who has not played this season due to a foot injury, should be healthy enough to return after the team's Week 4 bye, reports ESPN.com. That means Jones could make his debut Oct. 5 at New England.

Charles Clay barely a factor in Week 3
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9:54 pm ET) Dolphins tight end Charles Clay, who caught seven passes last week, took another step back in a Week 3 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.

Clay was held without a grab through the first three quarters of the game. His first catch did not come until the penultimate drive on offense for Miami. He finished with three catches for 24 yards on seven targets in a 34-15 defeat.

Clay has 82 receiving yards through three games. He'll look to bounce back in Week 4 against Oakland.


Miami's receiving corps held in check vs. Kansas City
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9:48 pm ET) Dolphins receivers Jarvis Landry, Brandon Gibson and Rishard Matthews all failed to make much of an impact in a Week 3 loss at home to the Chiefs.

Landry outperformed Gibson was heavily targeted as the team's third receiver on the afternoon. He caught four of the seven passes thrown his way for 24 yards. Three of his four receptions came in the first half. Gibson was targeted four times but finished the day with only one grab for a gain of 4 yards.

Matthews caught a short pass for a gain of 13 yards late in the fourth quarter for his only catch and target of a 34-15 defeat.


Mike Wallace held out of the end zone in Week 3
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9:40 pm ET) Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace was unable to extend his scoring streak to three games in Week 3 against Kansas City.

Wallace also ran an end-zround for 12 yards in the first quarter, his only carry of the afternoon. He caught a 30-yard pass on a playaction play in the second quarter for his longest reception.
He had four catches for 60 yards in the first half, but finished with five catches for 74 yards on 12 targets in a 34-15 defeat.

Wallace has 211 receiving yards and two scores through three games. He will look to get back in the end zone against the Raiders in London in Week 4.


Brian Hartline scores first touchdown of the season
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9:36 pm ET) Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline came down with his first touchdown catch of the season in Week 3 against Kansas City.

Hartline broke free on a crossing pattern and caught a playaction pass from Ryan Tannehill in the end zone for a 1-yard score. Hartline suffered a left elbow injury in the third quarter, but managed to work through the pain. He was targeted seven times and finished with three receptions for 25 yards and a touchdown in a 34-15 defeat.

Hartline has not had more than 436 receiving yards in a game this season. He will look to get back on track in London against the Raiders in Week 4.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9:33 pm ET) The Chiefs received minor contributions from several role players in a Week 3 win over Miami.

Fullback Anthony Sherman took one carry for four yards and caught one pass for one yard. Anthony Fasano, Junior Hemingway and Donnie Avery were each limited to two grabs on the afternoon. Fasano registered 23 yards, Hemingway picked up 18 yards and Avery finished with 12 yards in a 34-15 victory.
