Vikings remain undefeated

MINNEAPOLIS — Minnesota's defense denied Odell Beckham Jr. all night and forced two turnovers that led to 10 points, and the Vikings mystified Eli Manning again Monday during a 24-10 victory over the Giants.

Sam Bradford threw a touchdown pass to tight end Kyle Rudolph for the third straight game and kept his turnover-free streak intact, helping the Vikings (4-0) lead from start to finish after falling behind in each of their first three wins.

Beckham, who has yet to score this season, was smothered by cornerback Xavier Rhodes and had 23 yards on three catches. Manning was 25 for 45 for just 261 yards and Rhodes picked him off in the third quarter.

Bradham arrested: Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham was arrested at Miami International Airport after authorities say TSA workers found a loaded gun in his backpack. A Miami-Dade police report said Bradham, a former standout at Florida State, was arrested Sunday morning on a misdemeanor concealed weapons charge. The arrest report said TSA workers spotted the gun as Bradham's bag went through an X-ray machine. Bradham, who has a concealed weapons permit, told workers he forgot the gun was in the bag. He was released Sunday on $500 bail.

Siemian uncertain: Broncos coach Gary Kubiak told KDSP-AM in Denver that "our plan is for Trevor (Siemian) being there Sunday, but we have to take it day by day" after the quarterback was injured Sunday against the Bucs. Siemian injured his left, non-throwing shoulder when Bucs defensive tackle Clinton McDonald threw him to the turf in the second quarter Sunday. Rookie Paxton Lynch replaced Siemian at Raymond James Stadium and threw for 170 yards and a score.

Still Fitz: Jets coach Todd Bowles reiterated that he plans to stick with Ryan Fitzpatrick as his starting quarterback despite 10 interceptions — including nine over the past two games.

Palmer update: Carson Palmer was going through concussion protocol a day after leaving the game against the Rams, and Arizona coach Bruce Arians said he wasn't ruling out the quarterback for Thursday night's game at San Francisco.

Browns: Starting center Austin Reiter, a former standout at USF, is out for the season with a turn ligament in his left knee. Also, Cleveland waived linebacker Armonty Bryant on the day he was eligible to return from a suspension. Bryant recently pleaded guilty to a charge of attempted drug possession.

49ers: Linebacker NaVorro Bowman is out for the season with a torn left Achilles tendon. He suffered the non-contact injury Sunday against Dallas.

Titans: They fired special teams coordinator Bobby April a day after Tennessee allowed a 67-yard punt return for the winning touchdown in a 27-20 loss to Houston. Special teams assistant Steve Hoffman will take over April's duties.

Other injuries: Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon (ruptured right Achilles tendon) is likely out for the season. … Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis (mild hamstring strain) is unsure for Sunday's game at Pittsburgh.
