The quarterback carousel continues to spin in Cleveland, where the Browns said Jason Campbell will start Sunday's game at Kansas City. Browns Coach Rob Chudzinski announced the move Wednesday in a morning meeting with reporters. “He's been productive, given us leadership, gives us the best chance to win,” the coach said. Cleveland is 0-4 with Weeden as a starter this season, most recently losing to Green Bay on Sunday, 31-13. Weeden was replaced by third-stringer Brian Hoyer, who gave the team an unexpected lift until suffering a season-ending knee injury.

Talk about a quarterback scramble. Through the first seven weeks of the NFL season, nine teams have started at least two quarterbacks - Minnesota has started three - and this weekend you'll be able to add Chicago and St. Louis to that list. Come Monday, 45 different players will have started at quarterback for the 32 teams, among them a promoted practice-squad player, Buffalo's Thad Lewis, and one who has made starts for two different teams this season, the Vikings' Josh Freeman, formerly of Tampa Bay. Through seven games last year, just three teams had started multiple quarterbacks - Arizona, Kansas City and Tennessee - and all of them went on to have losing seasons.

Aldon Smith had more than twice as many sacks as he's had in a single game during his two-year NFL career. He had the second-most in San Francisco 49ers history. He now has more than anyone else in the league this season. And the defensive end did more than enough to ruin the night for backup quarterback Jason Campbell and the Chicago Bears, who lost to Smith and the 49ers, 32-7, on "Monday Night Football. " Smith's 5 1/2 sacks gave him 15 for the season. Fred Dean holds the franchise record of six sacks in a single game, a mark set in 1983.  “I think I have a thing for night games, I love playing at night,” said Smith, who has 25 career sacks.

It was the kind of interception any NFL quarterback would welcome. Jason Campbell, new quarterback of the Oakland Raiders, pulled off his helmet and walked toward the locker room at training camp recently when he was pulled aside — picked off, if you will — by Pro Bowl cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha. "I just told him he's having a great camp, straight up," Asomugha said. "What we have now at quarterback, we haven't seen in the past couple of years. . . . He may not be looking like Peyton Manning right now, but because we've never had it, it might seem that way. It's so new to us. " Asomugha stopped short of taking a direct shot at the pampered and wildly overpaid JaMarcus Russell, finally released last spring, but he clearly voiced what everyone at Raiders camp is feeling: This is a new day. For everyone.

LANDOVER, Md. -- "Avoid, reset and throw." Jason Campbell did just that, then connected with Santana Moss for a 67-yard touchdown pass play that won the game. Campbell and new Washington Redskins Coach Jim Zorn's West Coast offense succeeded in Week 2 as spectacularly as it failed in Week 1. Campbell went from uncomfortable to prolific, completing 24 of 36 passes for 321 yards in a 29-24 win over New Orleans. The big play came with 3:29 left and the Redskins (1-1) trailing 24-22.

Key: The Panthers scored the final 18 points, including the deciding touchdown after a bizarre fumbled punt gave them the ball at the Washington 12. Carolina's Quinton Teal blocked Byron Westbrook into returner Antwaan Randle El, which was ruled a legal play because Randle El had moved forward to catch the short punt. The ball bounced off Westbrook's foot and Carolina's Dante Wesley pounced on the loose football. Panthers said: "Anything that could have gone wrong the first month or so has gone wrong.

Will the St. Louis Cardinals fear the beards when the Boston Red Sox host Game 1 of the 2013 World Series on Wednesday night at Fenway Park? Or will it be the Red Sox who will be wary when the Cardinals' hitters stride to the batter's box with runners in scoring position? Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis, who is breaking down the World Series for The Times, believes Boston has the better pitching staff while St. Louis features the better lineup. What was the tiebreaker for Ellis?

Jason Campbell is running the West Coast offense like an old pro and turning Auburn into a national title contender in the process. The often-criticized quarterback threw for 252 yards and two touchdowns, and the eighth-ranked Tigers overwhelmed No. 10 Tennessee, 34-10, on Saturday night. Carnell Williams and Ronnie Brown each ran for a touchdown to complement Campbell, and the Tigers' swarming defense made Tennessee's two freshmen quarterbacks look like neophytes for the first time this season.

Quarterback Jason Campbell will make his NFL debut Sunday for the Washington Redskins, replacing Mark Brunell for a 3-6 team apparently heading nowhere and needing a plan for the future. Coach Joe Gibbs announced Monday that Campbell, who has been inactive for all 25 games of his pro career, would start against Tampa Bay.

Jason Campbell and Yenicia “Jenny” Montes held a party for 162 family members and friends at an exclusive Dominican Republican resort. Sounds like a nice gesture, although things might have gotten a bit awkward when the wedding that the guests were expecting never took place. The Oakland Raiders quarterback and his fiancee had been planning their wedding for more than a year. But, Campbell told the Washington Post, he and Montes made the decision to "put things off" after discussing it for a couple of weeks.

For the Oakland Raiders, quarterback Carson Palmer is the man of the hour. The eleventh hour. "Really, it was the eleventh-and-a-half hour," his father, Bill, said in a phone interview. "We pretty much had it in our heads that he wouldn't play this season. " That changed Tuesday when the Raiders shipped two premium draft picks to Cincinnati and pried loose the former USC Heisman Trophy winner and No. 1 pick who had vowed to never again play for the Bengals. The deal was cut mere hours before the NFL trade deadline.

When it comes to offensive systems, Washington Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell has learned them from A to Z. That's from Auburn to Zorn. Campbell, suddenly among the NFL's hottest quarterbacks, is on his seventh offense since his freshman year at Auburn, and he's flourishing in the West Coast scheme of rookie Coach Jim Zorn. Gone is the notion that Campbell is too much of a drop-back passer for the system, a strong-armed misfit bound for the scrap heap of failed Redskins experiments.

Only four weeks into the season, the NFL already has that transitional feel. There's a distinct hint of out-with-the-old, meaning the Patriots and Colts, and in-with-the-new, meaning the Titans and Bills, both surprisingly undefeated, and now, quite possibly, the Washington Redskins. Three straight victories won't guarantee a team a spot in the playoffs, but in the NFL's sprint of a season it does produce an extraordinary buzz. Just maybe it's the Redskins who own the most impressive win of the season, last Sunday's victory over a formidable and presumptuous Cowboys team in Dallas.
