49ers fool Giants, Aiyuk does the rest

Brandon Aiyuk was selected by the 49ers with their second of two first-round picks, but a training camp injury slowed the hype. Not for long, though. Aiyuk made his debut in Week 2 and turned it up another level in Week 3. The 49ers completely fooled the Giants with an end-around and Aiyuk followed a parade of three blockers to the end zone.

Ertz makes a one-handed grab

Zach Ertz is being counted on more in Week 3 with Dallas Goedert out and he has responded. Ertz reeled in an impressive one-handed catch — is it the catch of the week? Time will tell but this is one is certainly in play.

Cook finds a crease, takes it to the house

The Vikings (0-2) are another team facing what is essentially a must-win Week 3 game and that means they’ll have to lean on their best offensive player: Mr. Dalvin Cook. After the Titans jumped out to a 6-0 lead, Cook found a crease and took the ball 39 yards to the house, showcasing his trademark breakaway ability.

The Washington Football Team entered Week 3 as massive underdogs (seven points) against the Browns, and Haskins clearly took it to heart. The second-year QB came out firing and threw a perfect strike for a TD to Dontrelle Inman.

Watson finds Cobb to give Texans lead

It has taken some time for Randall Cobb to get rolling with his new team, but he gave the Texans a huge boost in the first quarter of what has turned into a must-win game for them at 0-2. Watson connected with Cobb for a 28-yard catch-and-run to give the Texans and early lead.

The 49ers’ injury list is long … really, really long

If you took a just a quick glance at San Francisco’s current list of injured players — including nearly double-digit projected starters — you would think it reads like the final injury report for an entire regular season. You would be wrong. After just two weeks and a training camp, the 49ers have been absolutely ravaged by injuries. Here’s a look right now at their current injury status heading into Week 3:

Out for Week 3:
QB Jimmy Garoppolo
TE George Kittle
RB Raheem Mostert
LB Dre Greenlaw

Short-term IR (out Week 3+)
CB Richard Sherman
WR Deebo Samuel
RB Tevin Coleman
CB Richie James

Long-term IR (out rest of season)
DE Nick Bosa
DE Solomon Thomas
WR Jalen Hurd
