Lions 31, Browns 17: This GIF of wiener dogs is an attempt to soothe sad Browns fans. Forget about Brandon Weeden; just watch these rambunctious puppies run.

Now, to the gory stuff: The Browns blew a 17-7 lead at halftime due to Matthew Stafford's four-touchdown day. Weeden attempted to rally back, but these were not the Bills on a Thursday. Also, Weeden threw two ugly picks.

Yeah, that's why I started with the puppies GIF. Eesh. Oh, watch Ndamukong Suh jump the snap and run over a Browns lineman forever.

Panthers 35, Vikings 10: The Panthers seem to be incapable of playing back-to-back good games. They'll either destroy their opponent or be astonishingly ineffective. (The last-second loss to the Bills is the outlier.) Fortunately, today was one of those good games for Carolina. Cam Newton threw for three touchdowns and 242 yards, and the Panthers plowed over Minnesota easily.
