New England 19, at N.Y. Jets 10: Matt Cassel doesn't look like Tom Brady but actually looks better than he did in his last start -- for Chatsworth High.

at Denver 39, San Diego 38: Chargers fans can rightfully curse the referees for this loss all week. They can get back to cursing Coach Norv Turner by the weekend.

at Arizona 31, Miami 10: Now Matt Leinart knows how Cassel felt back at USC, watching Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner take advantage of superior receivers versus an overmatched secondary.

at Tampa Bay 24, Atlanta 9: Jeff Garcia said he felt healthy enough to start this week, but bet Coach Jon Gruden will be very careful not to bring him back too soon after Brian Griese's successful start.

Pittsburgh 10, at Cleveland 6: In another AFC North shootout, the Browns lose to their rivals for the 10th straight time. Where's Brian Sipe when you need him?

Green Bay 48, at Detroit 25: Lions quarterback Jon Kitna threw four touchdown passes in the fourth quarter. Unfortunately, two were scores for the Packers.

Oakland 23, at Kansas City 8: Coach Lane Kiffin finally comes up with a game plan the Raiders can handle: Just hand off the ball to Darren McFadden.

Buffalo 20, at Jacksonville 16: Bills find the formula to winning on the road: Play a team with an injury-riddled offensive line.

Tennessee 24, at Cincinnati 7: Bengals fans starting to wonder whether their team made a mistake by not drafting Cassel to be Carson Palmer's backup.
