at Baltimore 35, Pittsburgh 7: Ravens proclaim monkey off their backs; it's a new season. So are playoffs, right, Steeler Nation?

at Chicago 30, Atlanta 12: Just like last season, why does everyone keep overlooking the Bears? Don't crown the loaded Falcons yet.

Cincinnati 27, at Cleveland 17: If it weren't for the Browns, losers of 12 of 13 season openers, the Bengals would be as bad as the Browns.

at Houston 34, Indianapolis 7: First hint that Colts might be much, much, much, much, much, much worse without Peyton Manning.

Detroit 27, at Tampa Bay 20: What's more shocking: Lions are 1-0 or Matthew Stafford isn't sidelined by an injury yet?

at Jacksonville 16, Tennessee 14: If David Garrard coached either of these starting quarterbacks, he'd probably cut him.

Buffalo 41, at Kansas City 7: Chiefs' most lopsided season-opening loss; worst at home since 45-0 loss to Steelers 35 years ago.

Philadelphia 31, at St. Louis 13: What's that dream team angle again ... the free-agent-filled Eagles or the Rams on your schedule?

at Arizona 28, Carolina 21: Cam Newton hadn't lost a game since junior college. With Panthers, it's considered a learning process.

at San Diego 24, Minnesota 17: How does magician Donovan McNabb do it? Passed for 39 yards and lost by only one touchdown.

at San Francisco 33, Seattle 17: With no one else to turn to, Pete Carroll asks his Seahawks "What's your deal?" on covering kicks.

at Washington 28, N.Y. Giants 14: Good news for both sides: With brother Peyton out, Eli Manning tops in consecutive QB starts (111).

at N.Y. Jets 27, Dallas 24: Even after missing most of last season, Tony Romo hasn't forgotten how to blow a game in fourth quarter.
