Thanks for reading.

Betting results for every game — full game, first half and second half — are listed at the bottom of this story, along with some key boxscore stats.

8:23 p.m.: FINAL: Buccaneers 19, Cowboys 3. Ryan Succop booted four field goals, and the Buccaneers covered easily as 2½-point favorites. Tampa Bay’s defense smothered the Cowboys and made sure the game never threatened the total of 50½.

8:15 p.m.: Dak Prescott officially listed as questionable to return. Come on, just say he’s out. He’s not coming back into this game.

8:04 p.m.: Cowboys QB Dak Prescott leaves with what appears to be a hand injury. From bad to worse for the home team.

7:34 p.m.: END OF THIRD QUARTER: Buccaneers 19, Cowboys 3. Buccaneers are -2000 on the live line (Cowboys (+1000), total 35½.

7:26 p.m.: Mike Evans was +750 to score the game’s first touchdown.

7:19 p.m.: Yep.

7:17 p.m.: The in-game total continues to plummet. It’s down to 32½ (-115).

7:06 p.m.: That sequence with the punter might be the most exciting part of this game so far. Buccaneers 12, Cowboys 3. Buccaneers are -380 on the live line (Cowboys +290), total 35½.

6:46 p.m.: Second-half line: Cowboys -1½, total 23½

6:44 p.m.: HALFTIME: Buccaneers 12, Cowboys 3. First-half winners: Buccaneers and under. Nothing but field goals, and it doesn’t look promising for those who took the points with the home underdog or the over. The Cowboys are getting steamrolled by the Buccaneers defense.

5:33 p.m.: The Cowboys settle for a Brett Maher field goal from 51 yards and lead the Buccaneers 3-0 early in the first quarter. The Cowboys are -110 on the live line (Buccaneers -120), total 48½.

Buccaneers (-2½, 50½, -140) at Cowboys (+120), 5:20 p.m.

The Giants got the outright win as 5½-point underdogs and the total of 44 stayed under on the failed kick.

4:20 p.m.: FINAL: Chargers 24, Raiders 19. Davante Adams showed out, but the Raiders made too many mistakes on offense and the Chargers covered as 3½-point favorites. The total stayed under 52.

4:14 p.m.: Late drama in Tennessee, where the Giants scored with 1:06 left in the fourth quarter and added a two-point conversion to take a 21-20 lead. The Giants are -380 on the live line (Titans +290).

3:59 p.m.: Derek Carr engineers a nice drive after the missed field goal and hits Davante Adams for a touchdown with 4:32 remaining. Adams was +110 to catch a TD. The two-point conversion is a wreck, and the Raiders trail the Chargers 24-19. The Raiders are +575 on the live line (Chargers -900).

3:19 p.m.: A couple of the Justin Herbert player props that have gone over: longest completion 37½ yards (42), 2½ TD passes.

3:16 p.m.: The Packers have 115 total yards and are losing 17-0 to the Vikings. Brutal. Minnesota is -4000 on the live line (Packers +1400), total 37½.

3:09 p.m.: Justin Herbert flicks a dart for his third touchdown of the game and unofficially is 23-for-27 for 259 yards. Somewhere, Marcus Arroyo is telling a recruit he coached Herbert. Chargers lead the Raiders 24-10 midway through the third quarter and are -1200 on the live line (Raiders +700), total 52½.

3:05 p.m.: Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen is ruled out for the remainder of the game with a hamstring injury. Los Angeles went from -550 to -500 on the live line (Raiders +375) after the announcement, total 50½.

2:56 p.m.: Second-half line: Chiefs -½, total 26½

2:52 p.m.: HALFTIME: Chiefs 23, Cardinals 7. First-half winners: Chiefs 3½, over 27. Kansas Ciy kicker Harrison Butker limped off the sideline to hit a 54-yard field goal with two seconds left in the second quarter that pushed the total over. Kickers, man.

2:46 p.m.: Second-half line: Raiders Pick -110, total 24½

2:46 p.m.: Second-half line: Titans -1½, total 21½

2:42 p.m.: HALFTIME: Titans 13, Giants 0. First-half winners: Titans -3, under 21½.

2:41 p.m.: HALFTIME: Chargers 17, Raiders 3. First-half winners: Chargers -3, under 26.

2:36 p.m.: The late Derek Carr interception proves costly. Justin Herbert’s second TD pass gives the Chargers a 17-3 lead over the Raiders with 35 seconds remaining in the second quarter. The Chargers are -1300 on the live line (Raiders +750), total 46½.

2:07 p.m.: Herbert to Horvath, and the Chargers take a 10-3 advantage with 9:34 left in the second quarter. Los Angeles is -380 on the live line (Raiders +290), total 48½.

1:54 p.m.: Raiders 3, Chargers 3, end of the first quarter. First score will be a touchdown (no +165) and will there be a made field goal in the first quarter (yes even) props cash. First-quarter winners: Raiders +½, under 10.

1:49 p.m.: FINAL: Steelers 23, Bengals 20. What an adventure this turned into for bettors. The Bengals scored on the final play of regulation but had the extra point blocked. The Steelers had a field-goal attempt in OT doink off the upright before Chris Boswell hit from 53 yards for the outright upset. The total managed to stay under 441/2.

1:45 p.m.: The Raiders answer with a field goal of their own from Daniel Carlson after a good drive. It’s tied 3-3. The Raiders are +140 on the live line (Chargers -170), total 49½.

1:38 p.m.: FINAL: Colts 20, Texans 20. Tough break for Texas money-line bettors, who appeared safe entering the fourth quarter. The Colts missed a field goal in OT for the straight-up win and didn’t cover as 7-point favorites. The total also stayed under.

1:34 p.m.: The Chargers strike first and lead the Raiders 3-0. Los Angeles is -210 on the live line (Raiders +170), total 49½.

1:24 p.m.: FINAL: Commanders 28, Jaguars 22. Washington rallied from an eight-point deficit in the fourth quarter to cover the -3. The total also went over with the Commanders’ late offensive surge.

1:22 p.m.: Here are the props we’ll be tracking for this afternoon’s Raiders-Chargers game:

Team totals: Raiders 23½ (over -130), Chargers 27½ (over -130).

Alternate point spreads: Raiders -3½ (+250), +10½ (-240); Chargers +3½ (-300), -101/2 (+200).

1:21 p.m.: FINAL: Eagles 38, Lions 35. The Eagles nearly let a 17-point lead slip away and allow the Lions to cover as 51/2-point underdogs. The total easily went over.

1:16 p.m.: FINAL: Browns 26, Panthers 24. Cade York banged home a 58-yard field goal with 8 seconds remaining for the Browns, who closed as 1-point underdogs. The late flurry of scoring sent the total over.

1:11 p.m.: FINAL: Saints 27, Falcons 26. The Saints kicked a late field goal for the straight-up win and blocked an attempt at the end of regulation. But the Falcons cover +5½. The total went over.

1:09 p.m.: Chaos in the early games. Steelers-Bengals are headed to overtime. Colts-Texans are already in the extra session. And the Eagles are no longer covering against the Lions late in the fourth quarter.

1:08 p.m.: FINAL: Ravens 24, Jets 9. Give Lamar Jackson a contract extension. The Ravens covered as 6½-point favorites and the game stayed under the total of 44.

1:05 p.m.: FINAL: Bears 19, 49ers 10. The Bears answered the challenge in the second half and get the outright win as 6½-point favorites. The wet turf at Soldier Field helped the total stay under.

12:53 p.m.: FINAL: Dolphins 20, Patriots 7. The Dolphins cover as 3-point favorites, while the total of 46½ was never threatened.

Buccaneers (-2½, 50½, -140) at Cowboys (+120), 5:20 p.m.

12:38 p.m.: There are upsets brewing all over, including in Chicago where the Bears cashed in on a turnover and lead the 49ers 19-10 with 7:21 remaining in the fourth quarter after the extra point was missed. The Bears are -1800 on the live line (49ers +900), total 34½.

12:30 p.m.: The Baker Mayfield hate was a tad premature. His rushing touchdown early in the fourth quarter cut the Browns lead to 20-14. The Panthers are +290 on the live line (Browns -380), total 43½.

12:14 p.m.: Baker Mayfield does not appear to be the answer at quarterback in Carolina. The Browns lead 20-7 late in the third quarter and are -1600 on the live line (Panthers +850), total 40½.

12:05 p.m.: So much for that earlier comment about the Lions looking good. Kenneth Gainwell’s rushing touchdown put the Eagles on top 31-14 with 10:21 left in the third quarter. This looks like it will sail over the pregame closing total of 48½. The Eagles are -5000 on the live line (Lions +1600), total 65½.

11:57 a.m.: O.J. Howard burns the Colts for his second touchdown of the day, and the Texans are rolling. They lead 20-3 midway through the third quarter and are -700 on the live line (Colts +475), total 39½.

11:38 a.m.: HALFTIME: Commanders 14, Jaguars 3. First-half winners: Commanders -1, under 21. Jacksonville dropped a likely touchdown at the 1-yard line with 4:59 left in the second quarter that would have covered the over.

11:36 a.m.: Second-half line: Saints -5, total 21.

11:36 a.m.: Second-half line: Ravens -3, total 20.

10:45 a.m.: Jalen Hurts fantasy football owners are pleased. The Eagles QB scores on a 1-yard run on fourth down, and it’s tied 7-7 in Detroit. Philadelphia is -220 on the live line (Lions +180), total 50½.

10:36 a.m.: Soldier Field is a swimming pool. Bears QB Justin Fields looks like he’s on a slip-and-slide in the front yard of his neighbor’s house. No scoring yet in Chicago, but the 49ers are -350 on the live line (Bears +270). The total has plunged to 31½.

10:30 a.m.: The Lions were a sexy pick with bettors to go over their season win total, probably because of “Hard Knocks.” But they look good so far. Detroit leads the favored Eagles 7-0 with 5:51 left in the first quarter and are +110 on the live line (Eagles -140), total 49½.

10:10 a.m.: Rough start for Bengals QB Joe Burrow, who gets sacked and then throws a pick-six. The Steelers lead Cincinnati 7-0 with 12:33 left in the first quarter. The Bengals are -190 favorites on the live line (Steelers +155), total 50½.

10:04 a.m.: Bettors showed faith in quarterback Baker Mayfield against his former club, as the Panthers closed as 1½-point favorites at the Westgate SuperBook over the Browns after the line bounced around all week. Also, the Eagles climbed to -6 favorites against the host Lions at kickoff.

9:50 a.m.: BetMGM reported two six-figure wagers on today’s games:
