The Indianapolis Colts are hoping for good news from an MRI on tight end Dwayne Allen's injured hip.
The former Clemson star left Sunday's opener in the second half and did not return. Allen, who missed most of the preseason with a foot injury, caught a 20-yard touchdown pass in the Colts' 21-17 victory over the Oakland Raiders.
Jacoby Ford had one catch for the Raiders, and also averaged 23.5 yards on two kickoff returns.
The New England Patriots geared their defense to stopping he Buffalo Bills' running game, and were successful in bottling up C.J. Spiller, who was held to 41 yards rushing on 17 carries and 14 yards on five pass receptions. He also lost a fumble, which the Patriots turned into a touchdown en route to a 23-21 victory.
Fred Jackson, meanwhile, came off the bench and had better success against the Patriots' defense, as he rushed for 67 on 13 tries.
"We have two great running backs," Spiller said. "I'm pretty sure they're going to try to come in and stop the run. I'd be surprised if any team didn't do that and we know that going into the game. We just have to try to find ways to counter them."
"Whenever we play a team, they are going to think about C.J. and rightfully so," Jackson said. "He has played out of his mind the last two years. It's just my job when I get that opportunity to take some of that pressure off him.
Both Jaron Brown and Andre Ellington caught passes for the Arizona Cardinals in their 27-24 loss to the St. Louis Rams. Brown's catch went for 14 yards, and Ellington's for 13.
