Gilchrist Eric Wood
Jersey
, who died in 2011 at age 75, was posthumously recognized
for his Bills’ career from 1962 through 1964.

Gilchrist was the American Football League player of the year in 1962 when he
rushed for 1,096 yards and a league-leading 13 touchdowns. Along with
quarterback Jack Kemp, he helped the Bills win their first of two AFL
championships in 1964.

Gilchrist is third all-time in franchise history with 31 rushing touchdowns
behind Thurman Thomas (65) and O.J. Simpson (57).

2:10 p.m.

Seven NFL players visibly protested during the national anthem in early
games.

Most of them were at the 49ers-Eagles game Colton
Schmidt Jersey
, where Philadelphia players Malcom Jenkins and
Rodney McLeod raised their fists. Kneeling on the 49ers sideline were Eric Reid,
Eli Harold, Adrian Colbert and Marquise Goodwin.

Chargers tackle Russell Okung raised a fist at Foxborough, Massachusetts.

At Cincinnati Cordy Glenn
Jersey
, the Colts joined arms on the sideline, and in the final
NFL game in London this season, almost all of the Vikings and Browns stood
arm-in-arm during the playing of ”The Star-Spangled Banner” and ”God Save The
Queen.”

Some members of the Houston Texans will likely make some type of expression
later at Seattle in reaction to comments by the team’s owner.

Bob McNair has apologized after a report revealed that he said ”we can’t have
the inmates running the prison” during a meeting of NFL owners about players who
protest by kneeling during the national anthem.

12:45 p.m.

Week 8 began with another Cleveland loss. The Browns fell to 0-8 with a 33-16
loss to the Vikings in London.

There isn’t a single game in this weekend’s schedule pitting teams with
winning records but there are several milestones in reach.

Saints quarterback Drew Brees needs a dozen completions against the Bears to
reach 6,000 for his career and join Hall of Famers Brett Favre and Peyton
Manning in that exclusive club.

Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston needs 225 passing yards against the
Panthers to reach 10 Jerry Hughes

,000 for his career.

Bills kicker Stephen Hauschka needs one more field goal of 50 or more yards
to set the NFL record with 13 consecutive conversions from that distance.

12:20 p.m.

The Cleveland Browns are closing in on their eighth loss, halfway to a
winless season.

The Browns had their first halftime lead of the season, and led Minnesota
16-15 late in the third quarter before the Vikings responded with two touchdown
drives to take a 30-16 lead in London.

Jerick McKinnon scored from a yard out and added a 2-point run to make it
23-16. Then, tight end Kyle Rudolph caught a 4-yard pass from Case Keenum.

A win would make the Vikings 6-2.

The Browns are one of two winless teams in the NFL this season. The other is
the San Francisco 49ers Preston Brown
Jersey
, who play the Philadelphia Eagles today.

11:19 a.m.

The Cleveland Browns have their first halftime lead of the season after
DeShone Kizer put them up 13-12 against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday at
Twickenham.

The rookie quarterback capped an 82-yard drive with a 1-yard run for a
touchdown to give the winless Browns (0-7) a four-point lead with 42 seconds
left in the half.

The Vikings responded with a 34-yard field goal as time expired.

The Browns took a 6-0 lead through a 26-yard touchdown run by Isaiah Crowell
on their first drive before the Vikings responded with nine straight points.
Both teams missed an extra point.
