Week 10 rankings: Perfect Patriots possible

By Dennis Dillon - SportingNews

The '72 Dolphins can keep that bubbly on ice. But they shouldn't count on popping the cork this year.

After beating the Colts in the Game of the Century, everyone is wondering if the Patriots can run the table and complete a perfect season. Given their schedule, they can. Of their remaining opponents (Buffalo, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Jets, Miami and Giants), only the Steelers and Giants look like they could give New England a competitive battle.

Even though it didn't produce the offensive fireworks most people expected, Sunday's game in Indianapolis wasn't lacking in big plays or dramatic moments. No matter what team you were rooting for, I'm guessing your blood pressure spiked several times throughout the game.

The Patriots were on the ropes in the fourth quarter, but Tom Brady brought them back. What a surprise. He's on his way to a record-breaking season and we might as well hand him the league MVP award right now. Randy Moss, Wes Welker and Donte' Stallworth -- receivers acquired in the offseason -- all played important roles in New England's victory.

And let's not overlook the contributions of reserve running back Kevin Faulk and defensive lineman Jarvis Green. Faulk took a pass from Brady and turned it into a 13-yard, game-winning TD as he dove across the goal line. When Green stripped Manning of the ball on the ensuing Colts possession, it popped into the arms of linebacker Rosevelt Colvin. Game over.

Yes, the Colts lost. But they stood toe-to-toe with New England for almost 58 minutes -- and no other team has been able to do that this season. Their defense played well for most of the game, Joseph Addai looked like the second coming of Barry Sanders and Peyton Manning was his usual pillar of consistency until a late fumble. And don't forget: Indy played without wide receiver Marvin Harrison and some other starters.

The Colts have nothing to hang their heads about. They remain the No. 2 team in the league (a lot of their fans still insist they're the best) and there's a good chance they'll meet New England again in the AFC championship game.

But for now, there's no debate. The Patriots are in a class by themselves.

Now, here is this week's power poll.

Rk. Team Record Prev.
1. New England Patriots 9-0 (1)
The road to Super Bowl 42 runs through Foxboro -- but you probably knew that already.
2. Indianapolis Colts 7-1 (2)
There's still a chance they could go 15-1.
3. Dallas Cowboys 7-1 (3)
Give Tony Romo that first paycheck from his new $67 million contract. He earned it.
4. Pittsburgh Steelers 6-2 (4)
Roethlisberger was a towering Big Ben vs. Baltimore.
5. Green Bay Packers 7-1 (5)
Winning at Denver and at Kansas City in a span of six days is remarkable.
6. New York Giants 6-2 (6)
They can make a statement by winning Sunday's rematch against Dallas.
7. Tennessee Titans 6-2 (7)
Defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz can expect some head coaching interviews after this season.
8. Detroit Lions 6-2 (10)
Who would have predicted it? Other than Jon Kitna, I mean.
9. Jacksonville Jaguars 5-3 (8)
Their vaunted defense took a big hit against New Orleans.
10. Washington Redskins 5-3 (13)
Jason Campbell's next touchdown pass to a wide receiver will be his first of the season.
11. Tampa Bay Buccaneers 5-4 (14)
The Bucs must run the ball better to contend for the division title.
12. San Diego Chargers 4-4 (9)
Hey, Philip Rivers, how do you like playing football indoors?
13. Cleveland Browns 5-3 (17)
Imagine how good the Browns would be if they had a defense.
14. New Orleans Saints 4-4 (21)
Don't laugh. After starting 0-4, the Saints have a shot at finishing 12-4.
15. Baltimore Ravens 4-4 (12)
There's a reason why Steve McNair looks like a beat-up, 34-year-old quarterback. He is.
16. Seattle Seahawks 4-4 (11)
The best thing the Seahawks have going for them right now is that they're in the weak NFC West.
17. Carolina Panthers 4-4 (15)
Besides winless Miami and St. Louis, the Panthers are the only team which hasn't won a game at home.
18. Kansas City Chiefs 4-4 (16)
If a foot injury keeps Larry Johnson out for long, the Chiefs are going to need a Priest.
19. Buffalo Bills 4-4 (22)
Props to Dick Jauron for keeping the Bills competitive after an 0-3 start and a long list of injuries.
20. Minnesota Vikings 3-5 (25)
What's next for Adrian Peterson? Eric Dickerson's single-season rushing record?
21. Arizona Cardinals 3-5 (19)
When Kurt Warner said he was disgusted and embarrassed after the Cardinals' loss to Tampa Bay, do you think he was talking about his two interceptions or his 26.0 passer rating?
22. Houston Texans 4-5 (24)
Enjoy your open week, boys. Your next three games are vs. New Orleans, at Cleveland and at Tennessee.
23. Chicago Bears 3-5 (23)
Does Brian Urlacher have a back injury? Only Jay Glazer knows for sure.
24. Denver Broncos 3-5 (18)
If you throw out the 41 points San Diego scored and the 44 Minnesota scored, the Broncos have played pretty good defense.
25. Philadelphia Eagles 3-5 (20)
The Eagles can't even get a little brotherly love from their own fans.
26. Cincinnati Bengals 2-6 (26)
Marvin Lewis could be on the endangered coaches list.
27. Atlanta Falcons 2-6 (29)
Does the team's first home blackout since 2001 mean the fans are upset Michael Vick isn't showing up or that the Falcons are?
28. Oakland Raiders 2-6 (27)
Time to see what JaMarcus Russell can do. The only thing the Raiders have to lose is eight more games.
29. San Francisco 49ers 2-6 (28)
It's not looking like this 49ers-Alex Smith relationship is working out.
30. New York Jets 1-8 (30)
Leon Washington (three kick returns for TDs) is providing some pizzazz in an otherwise dismal season.
31. Miami Dolphins 0-8 (31)
Wonder if the Dolphins miss Wes Welker.
32. St. Louis Rams 0-8 (32)
Most teams come out of their open week healthier. The Rams lost DE Leonard Little (torn toe ligament) for the season.

it's a big game for the Giants, we played some really bad teams and took advantage of the easy schedule, this will really show how good the Giants truely are. A win would create a nice division battle with the Cowboys

Former UCLA teammates, Pac-10 rivals reunited in Carolina

By MIKE CRANSTON, AP Sports Writer
November 10, 2007

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Drew Olson's tiny locker is tucked away in the auxiliary area of the Carolina Panthers locker room. Matt Moore's space is on the main row of quarterbacks, next to veterans Jake Delhomme, Vinny Testaverde and David Carr.

Because of the injuries sustained by the three veterans, Moore practiced with the first team this week and could start Sunday against Atlanta. Olson is on the practice squad, with an outside shot to be brought up to the 53-man roster.

How the roles are reversed from college, when Olson beat out Moore for the starting job at UCLA, leading Moore to leave school and eventually transfer.

"It's hilarious, but it's cool, you know?" Olson said. "It's good to be back with Matt and seeing him play well and getting a chance to play. It's unique."

Olson and Moore grew up in California, were part of the same recruiting class at UCLA and were even roommates for a time. As freshmen in 2002, they thought they would be behind returning starter Cory Paus.

But Paus got injured, and Olson came in. Then he got hurt and Moore started a game and played in six.

Moore was picked to be the starter the next season, but got hurt early. Olson took over and was eventually anointed the long-term answer. Moore left school, unsure if he wanted to play football anymore. He eventually transferred to Oregon State, where he became the starter.

"We were talking yesterday it was the best thing for me to go up there," Moore said. "He supports that and I supported him throughout his college career. All I can say really is we're good buddies and we kind of understand each other's situations so it's really not an issue."

Going to another Pac-10 school meant the two would meet up again. And Olson would win that matchup, too.

Olson, a senior, threw for 262 yards and a school-record six touchdowns with no interceptions in the No. 8 Bruins' 51-28 win over the Beavers in 2005. Moore, a redshirt junior, threw for 279 yards, two TDs and two interceptions.

"It was a good day," Olson said. "Those are fun games and we'll always remember that stuff. We always joke about it and just have fun with it."

Despite Olson's success over Moore at the college level, Moore was considered a better pro prospect. At 6 feet 3, Moore is at least an inch taller than Olson and has a stronger arm.

Olson went undrafted in 2006 and spent last season on Baltimore's practice squad. He was then cut by the Ravens in training camp. Moore also wasn't drafted in the spring, but the Panthers signed him in September after he was cut by Dallas.

With the injuries to Delhomme, Carr and Testaverde, Moore has played in three games. He's completed 3 of 7 passes for 79 yards and an interception.

Neither thought they would be together again. But on Tuesday, the Panthers signed Olson to the practice squad.

"I was actually excited. I actually called him up. We went out to lunch," Moore said. "All that stuff a long time ago really wasn't a big issue. But I'm glad he's here. It's nice to have a friendly face around. We're buddies, so it should be fun."

The two said there is no animosity. They were seen joking this week -- when Olson came from his cubicle in the back to the front of the locker room to see Moore.

"It's never been a personal thing," Olson said. "It never has been, and when we played against each other in college it was big hugs and smiles. It's always been friendly and always will be."

NFL picks for Week 10

November 10, 2007

By Chris Palochko
PA SportsTicker Staff Writer


The "Glacier" melted under the pressure last week. Trying to restore some order, we now turn to the man nicknamed "Sheriff."

Season to Date: 13-28 Best Bets: 1-8

(Home team in caps)

1. (Best Bet) ARIZONA (-1) over Detroit - An intense individual who has a propensity to fly off the handle at a moments notice, "Sheriff" may see his blood pressure reach the boiling point if the Cardinals are unable to take down the Lions in the desert.

PICK: ARIZONA, 24-20

2. Jacksonville (+4) over TENNESSEE - Talking about this game, "Sheriff" was quite calm at the outset. But when the discussion turned toward struggling Titans quarterback Vince Young, his intensity started to rise. "Sheriff" also sees the Jaguars' defense dishing out some hard justice this week.

PICK: Jacksonville, 17-16

3. KANSAS CITY (-3) over Denver - With or without Jay Cutler, the Broncos are not very good. "Sheriff" agreed with this statement, raising his voice to a feverish level.

PICK: KANSAS CITY, 20-14

4. Chicago (-3.5) over OAKLAND - This game immediately caught the attention of "Sheriff," who unleashed a verbal assault on the disappointing Bears. However, he had even harsher words for the Al Davis-run Raiders before strutting off.

PICK: Chicago, 26-13

5. SAN DIEGO (+4) over Indianapolis - "Sheriff" never had been a fan of Peyton Manning until last season. He's no fan this week, either.

PICK: Indianapolis, 27-24

6. NY GIANTS (pick) over Dallas -- With his judgment perhaps clouded, "Sheriff" thinks Giants quarterback Eli Manning has the ability to throw for 50,000 yards in his career. This week, "Sheriff" expects Peyton's younger brother to come through. If not, there may be consequences.

PICK: NY GIANTS, 27-24

Giants' pass rush a challenge for Cowboys


New York has four in NFL's top 30 in QB sacks


By Albert Breer
The Dallas Morning News



- Some eyebrows were raised when the Giants selected Boston College defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka with the last selection of the first round of the 2006 NFL draft.
For one thing, the team already had a future Hall of Famer in defensive end Michael Strahan. For another, New York used two first-day draft picks in the previous three years on ends Osi Umenyiora and Justin Tuck, who were to be developed behind the aging Giants legend.

So why would the Giants need another pass rusher? Everyone's finding out now. The Giants' 30 sacks are five more than any other team in the league, and all four pass rushers rank in the top 30 in the NFL in sacks.

Collectively, they present a pass-protection challenge that, if not the toughest, is certainly unique in facing the Cowboys' offensive front.

"There's a lot of speed and ability and talent with those four guys," Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. "The different matchups put a lot of stress on an opponent in terms of protections."

Defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo is the man creating those matchups. In doing so, he has veered from his roots working under blitz-happy Eagles coordinator Jim Johnson the last eight years. Where Johnson uses everyone on the field to bring extra pressure, Spagnuolo hasn't sent more than the standard four rushers as often.

That's because he hasn't had to. With a glut of quick rushers on the outside, Spagnuolo has used the team's nickel defense to put all four in the game at the same time. That forces guards and centers, used to blocking bull-rushing tackles, to try to fight off quicker players.

"They're playing with a lot of confidence, a lot of swagger," Cowboys center Andre Gurode said. "And they look like a totally different team."

It starts with a run defense that ranks seventh in the league and has been good enough to influence opponents to throw on 98 of 144 first-down plays. That works to create long-yardage situations, when 300-pound tackles Barry Cofield and Fred Robbins come off the field and are replaced by Kiawanuka from linebacker and Tuck off the bench.

There's no telling who's lining up where, and that's allowed Spagnuolo to keep linebackers in coverage.

Pressure, too, comes from within. All four are competitive with one another.

"If I get a sack or two, they look at me like I stole something from their momma," Strahan said.

The race to the quarterback has brought impressive results. Each has a multiple-sack game this season. Strahan, who missed the preseason, has the low-water mark with four. Umenyiora has eight, Tuck has seven and Kiwanuka 41u22152, meaning the four account for 231u22152 of the team's 30 sacks.

But the Cowboys have a talented group of their own along the offensive line. Dallas starts a three-time Pro Bowler at left tackle (Flozell Adams) along with two longtime starting left tackles (right tackle Marc Colombo and right guard Leonard Davis).

So the idea of facing a top-shelf pass rusher, or four of them, isn't exactly foreign. And the confidence they can stop such players, no matter where or how they line up, is key to the Cowboys.

"They're doing their thing," Davis said. "But we can't really worry about them. We've got to worry about ourselves because that's what we can control."

NFL telling officials to eject players for helmet-to-helmet hits

By DAVE GOLDBERG, AP Football Writer
November 10, 2007

NEW YORK (AP) -- The NFL has told its officiating crews to start ejecting players for flagrant helmet-to-helmet hits.

The new policy was outlined Saturday in a memo from supervisor of officials Mike Pereira, which was obtained by The Associated Press. It followed two fines last weekend for what the officiating department had determined were hits against players in defenseless positions.

One fine was against Washington Redskins safety LaRon Landry, who will forfeit a game check of $16,764 for a helmet-to-helmet hit on New York Jets quarterback Kellen Clemens. The other was against Philadelphia defensive tackle LeJuan Ramsey, who was fined his game check of $21,176 for spearing Dallas' Julius Jones.

Two weeks ago, San Diego cornerback Drayton Florence was fined $15,000 for a helmet-to-helmet hit that gave Houston quarterback Matt Schaub a concussion.

"Officials will be reminded this week to pay strict attention to these rules and disqualify the fouling player if the action is judged to be flagrant," Pereira wrote in the memo sent to the 32 NFL teams. "Actions that involve flagrant helmet to helmet contact are the likely acts that will include disqualification. Our commissioner and this office remain very focused on the safety of our players."

In the memo fining Landry and Ramsey, NFL director of football operations Gene Washington said emphasis would be on hits against players in defenseless positions.

Landry previously was fined $7,500 for two unnecessary roughness violations on Oct. 21 against Arizona. Ramsey was fined $5,000 on Oct. 14 for roughing the passer against the Jets.

After Florence was fined, the Texans complained that the punishment wasn't severe enough.

"We are disappointed in the sense that we have lost our starting quarterback for at least one game after the player took the crown of his helmet and delivered an illegal blow to Matt's jaw and the fine levied is only a small fraction of the player's weekly pay," general manager Rick Smith said.

"Is that equitable? The punishment doesn't appear to fit the crime when all factors are considered."

Indianapolis (7-1) at San Diego (4-4)

Game Info: 8:15 pm EST Sun Nov 11, 2007


By MATT BECKER, STATS Writer


After coming up short in one of the most-hyped regular-season games of the last decade, the first-place Indianapolis Colts don't have much breathing room atop the AFC South.

The Colts try to bounce back from their tough loss on Sunday night when they visit the underachieving San Diego Chargers, who are coming off their most humiliating defeat of the season.

Indianapolis (7-1) fell to New England 24-20 last Sunday in a matchup featuring the NFL's final two unbeaten teams.

The Colts took a 20-10 lead with 9:42 left in the game on Peyton Manning's 1-yard sneak into the end zone, but the defense allowed two long pass plays in the final minutes as the Patriots took over.

"That hurts the most," cornerback Kelvin Hayden said. "The main thing we have to focus on is the fourth quarter, and that's something we've got to learn from."

Indianapolis' lead over second-place Tennessee in the division is down to one game, and the Colts must now avoid any further letdowns - something they struggled with last season.

The Colts started the 2006 season 9-0 before losing 21-14 at Dallas on Nov. 19. Indianapolis ended up losing four of its final seven games and missed out on a coveted first-round bye in the playoffs.

"We had the same situation last year when we went to Dallas and had the lead and couldn't hold it and then we got into a stretch where we didn't play very good football," Colts coach Tony Dungy said. "This is the same thing as last year. So we've got to bounce back and do it a little better than last year.

"I think we know what's at stake and we can't afford a letdown after this loss."

The Chargers (4-4), meanwhile, are trying to get back on track following last Sunday's 35-17 road loss to a Minnesota team which entered with a 2-5 record.

Vikings rookie Adrian Peterson rushed for an NFL single-game record of 296 yards, while reigning NFL MVP LaDainian Tomlinson was held to 40 yards on 16 carries.

"We got our butt kicked. Point blank," All-Pro outside linebacker Shawne Merriman said.

San Diego entered last Sunday's game with the seventh-best rush defense, but has since dropped all the way to 22nd, allowing an average of 125.0 yards on the ground.

The loss to Minnesota also snapped a three-game winning streak for the Chargers, leaving them tied with Kansas City atop the weak AFC West.

San Diego was considered by many to be a Super Bowl contender this season, but it hardly looks like one. The combined record of the four teams the Chargers have beaten is 12-21, while their four losses have come against teams with a 23-10 record.

"We're not an elite team at all," Tomlinson said. "We're a team that's in the middle of the pack and we're struggling trying to win games.

"We've got to find a way to get back to playing successful football and playing the way we're able to play when we're good. We've got to start beating teams that are good and teams that are elite in this league."

Tomlinson has been unable to duplicate the success he had last season when he scored 31 touchdowns. He ran for 113.4 yards per game in 2006, but is averaging 82.1 yards on the ground this year with eight total TDs.

Tomlinson has rushed for 157 yards and one touchdown on 45 carries in two career games against the Colts.

In the last meeting on Dec. 18, 2005, the Chargers won 26-17 to end the Colts' 13-0 start.

Indianapolis ranks third in the NFL in total offense (396.0 yards per game) and scoring (30.5 ppg), but finished with season lows in points and yards (329) against the Patriots.

Running back Joseph Addai, though, had an outstanding performance, becoming the first Colts player to gain more than 100 yards both rushing and receiving in a game. Addai ran for 112 yards on 26 carries and had five receptions for 114 yards, including a 73-yard score on a short pass from Manning right before halftime to put Indianapolis up 13-7.

Manning threw for 225 yards against New England, but also had an interception and a costly fumble with 2:25 left in the game.

Manning, who won his previous three games versus the Chargers before the last meeting, has thrown for 1,260 yards, six touchdowns and five interceptions in four career games against them.

He will once again take the field without one of his top targets. Pro Bowl wide receiver Marvin Harrison did not make the trip to San Diego and will miss his second consecutive game - and fourth of the season - due to a knee injury.

Actually, watching Sanders when moss get his 55 yard catch, the safety looked like as wanting to make a cheapshot, a helmet to helmet hit on moss, while the recever went down already. fortunatly he missed(in addition too, the defender got a lesser injury while he made the move.
