at Indianapolis 27, Tennessee 17: Coach Jeff Fisher secretly wears a Peyton Manning jersey under his Titans gear. Feels like a loser.

at Jacksonville 23, Houston 18: Jaguars in playoff hunt; Jaguars fans can't find stadium (smallest crowd in club history, 42,079).

Denver 44, at Kansas City 13: Remember when Coach Josh McDaniels wanted Matt Cassel to be the Broncos quarterback? Chiefs concur.

Oakland 27, at Pittsburgh 24: A forgetful Al Davis labels the deciding touchdown pass with nine seconds left, "The Immaculate Reception."

at Miami 22, New England 21: Bill Belichick thinks Miami should have gone for a touchdown instead of a field goal on fourth down.

at Carolina 16, Tampa Bay 6: UCLA product Matt Moore thanks Jake Delhomme for lowering expectations of Panthers quarterbacking.

at Chicago 17, St. Louis 9: Jay Cutler shows he's a good guy by not running up score and not padding stats (12 passing yards after first quarter).

at Cincinnati 23, Detroit 13: Bengals lapse into thinking they're playing Detroit for a better draft position before the Lions show who lapses last.

New Orleans 33, at Washington 30 (OT): Jim Zorn says if he was still calling plays, he'd have ordered Shaun Suisham to make that field goal.

Philadelphia 34, at Atlanta 7: Michael Vick heard a lot of barking from crowd, but Chris Redman proved who the dog is at quarterback.

San Diego 30, at Cleveland 23: Jim Brown is on hand to watch LaDainian Tomlinson pass him on the all-time rushing list. Browns watch too.

at N.Y. Giants 31, Dallas 24: Tony Romo finds calendar taped to his locker, reminding him Giants are Cowboys' first opponent in December.

at Seattle 20, San Francisco 17: Frank Gore rushes for 202 yards in last meeting; gets nine carries this time. Nice element of surprise, 49ers.

at Arizona 30, Minnesota 17: Best news for Vikings fans who've learned to expect worst: Brett Favre and Adrian Peterson were not injured.
