No lead was safe on Sunday, with several teams engineering huge second-half comebacks (yes, the Falcons collapsed again). There was a little of everything — there was even a tie! — and a week that was expected to be an appetizer for Monday night’s matchup between Kansas City and Baltimore proved to have plenty of its own entertainment value.
Here’s what we learned:
*Except when it takes more.
Seahawks 38, Cowboys 31 Dak Prescott kept up with Russell Wilson for nearly the entire game, throwing for 472 yards — his second straight game with 450 or more yards passing — and three touchdowns, but after getting Dallas as close as the Seattle 22-yard line on his team’s final possession, he scrambled around before throwing an interception in the end zone that cost his team a potential upset.
Bills 35, Rams 32 Los Angeles controlled the time of possession, had a 103-yard advantage in total yards, took all the second-half momentum as they erased a 28-3 deficit, and then they lost. Maybe this season isn’t so different from last season for the Rams, who seem to have used up all their good luck during the 2018 regular season.
Patriots 36, Raiders 20 New England ran what amounted to a modified version of the Air Raid offense during Tom Brady’s best seasons, but the Patriots are loving running the ball thus far in the Cam Newton era, with 250 rushing yards on Sunday — the second time they have gone over 200 this season. They dedicated the run-heavy win to running back James White, who missed a second consecutive game after the death of his father.
Steelers 28, Texans 21 At halftime in Pittsburgh it looked like an upset could be brewing, with Deshaun Watson having no trouble scoring against the Steelers’ vaunted defense. In the second half, Houston managed just 51 yards and two first downs.
Titans 31, Vikings 30 Derrick Henry chewing up yardage, Ryan Tannehill finding room to work downfield, Tennessee’s defense looking absolutely useless and Stephen Gostkowski trotting onto the field in the final two minutes to win the game with a field goal. It’s a bit like “Groundhog Day,” but it’s also a recipe that has worked just fine for the Titans in all three games this season.
Buccaneers 28, Broncos 10 There wasn’t much hope for a decent game once Denver starting quarterback Drew Lock was injured last week — his backup, Jeff Driskel, was pulled in the second half, leading to snaps for third-stringer Brett Rypien — but a turn-back-the-clock game from Tom Brady made it a laugher. That Brady looked young again in a game in which Rob Gronkowski seemed to shake off the rust was likely not a coincidence.
Colts 36, Jets 7 Philip Rivers joined Drew Brees (550), Tom Brady (547), Peyton Manning (539), Brett Favre (508) and Dan Marino (420) as the only players in N.F.L. history with 400 or more career passing touchdowns.
49ers 36, Giants 9 The most interesting aspect of a game in which San Francisco’s practice squad embarrassed the Giants’ starters in New Jersey was the fact that it was a Scorigami, i.e., it was the first time this score has happened in a game — the 1,056th unique score in N.F.L. history.
Bears 30, Falcons 26 Mitchell Trubisky somewhat surprisingly beat out Nick Foles for the starting quarterback job to start the season, but that experiment is likely over, as Trubisky was pulled for ineffectiveness against Atlanta, and Foles engineered a thrilling comeback with three touchdown passes in the fourth quarter. For Atlanta, a second straight week with an epic collapse could have Coach Dan Quinn on the hot seat.
Panthers 21, Chargers 16 Despite playing without running back Christian McCaffrey, Carolina won for the first time since Week 9 of last season, ending a 10-game losing streak. And while Justin Herbert lost again, the rookie threw for 330 yards, becoming just the fifth player to have 300 or more in each of his first two starts.
Browns 34, Footballers 20 Washington kept things fairly close for three quarters, but Cleveland asserted itself in the fourth, Nick Chubb continued to thrive and the Browns (2-1) have a winning record for the first time since 2014.
Bengals 23, Eagles 23 (overtime) A 59-yard field goal is hardly a gimme, but Matt Pryor, a Philadelphia guard, has to be blaming himself for his team’s failure to win after his false start late in overtime took away Jake Elliott’s chance at hitting what would have been a game-winner.
The source code for Windows XP and other elderly Microsoft operating systems appears to have leaked online as the mega-corp’s Ignite developer shindig came to an end.
Heck, there’s no physical swag for attendees nowadays so how about a big ol’ source dump?
The source of the alleged code leak is unclear; a torrent for the archive popped up on internet armpit 4chan and contains what appears to be Windows XP Service Pack 1, as well as some other past-their-sell-by-date flavours of Microsoft’s greatest hits.
The Microsoft source boat is infamously leaky and unseaworthy. Chunks of Windows code seeped out from under the door in 2017, giving those not in the magic Microsoft circle an insight into how the company’s systems work. Another leak, in 2004, saw bits of Windows NT4 and 2000 source from the turn of the century nose their way into the sunlight.
This week’s leak looks both relatively complete and the real thing, according to experts. However, that could change as those with the skills dig into what has been exposed.
A Microsoft spokesperson told The Register: “We are investigating and will take appropriate action to help keep customers protected.”
Support for Windows XP finally came to an end in 2014, although the Windows POSReady 2009 (beloved by our bork pages and based on Windows XP SP3) lingered on until 2019. Support for Service Pack 1, which is what this leak appears to be, ended in 2006.
Service Pack 2, which debuted in August 2004, was the one where Microsoft took some determined efforts to deal with XP’s habit of welcoming attackers with open arms. SP2 added a firewall and the Security Center.
As miscreants pore over the source in search of new and exciting exploits for old machines, many may shrug and point out that XP, bar the POS version, is long out of support and only a fool would still entrust the venerable OS with any task other than target practice.
That said, back in March we revealed the operating system was still at work within the bowels of the UK’s Ministry of Justice, and we doubt Blighty is alone in having the code still knocking around the place. We’ll draw a veil over the whole NHS thing.
While parts of Microsoft may have embraced open source with the fervour of the born again, MICROS~1 keeps the code of its operating systems secret (unless one is a government or hardware maker and asks really nicely). As such, it is tricky to know just how much legacy code from Windows XP might be lurking in the damp basement of its newest and shiniest.
The alleged leak aside, the incident is a reminder for those still running the elderly operating system that the time to migrate to pastures new is well overdue. And for others, an excuse for a bit of sport: below is apparently part of the SMB code that was exploited by the NSA’s EternalBlue tool that was later stolen and leaked online and used by the WannaCry ransomware. Given the security warnings in the routine’s code comments, if we were a government agency with access to the source code, this is probably where we’d start looking for bugs… ®
Warning: 27 years from now, a bug in this function will be used by EternalBlue.

“Echelon does not have a formal partnership with Amazon. We are working with Echelon to clarify this in its communications, stop the sale of the product, and change the product branding,” an Amazon spokesperson said in a statement.
Amazon also sells other similarly priced (or cheaper) stationary bikes. But using the Prime branding suggested it wanted to make its mark into the booming at-home fitness category. Prime is the company’s popular subscription service and commonly uses the name on products.
That’s why Amazon wanted Echelon to change the branding — Amazon isn’t trying to disrupt Peloton (not yet, anyway).
Echelon told CNN Business that it built the product to sell on Amazon, and it has been in communication with Amazon since the product’s inception. It will continue making the bike (which sold out), and it will sell it once again after it gets the branding sorted out.
