The Oakland Raiders took a big step toward improving their struggling run defense by acquiring five-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman Richard Seymour from the New England Patriots on Sunday. The move does not come without its risks, as the Raiders gave up a first-round pick in 2011, which could be in the top 10 based on Oakland's recent history, to acquire a lineman who turns 30 next month and is in the final year of a contract paying him $3.7 million this season. Raiders owner Al Davis wanted immediate help for a defense that has struggled to stop the run in recent seasons.

Key: Rookie Shonn Greene ran for 144 yards and two scores, and Thomas Jones had 121 in 26 carries as the Jets rushed for 316 yards and became the first team in 34 years to run for at least 300 yards in consecutive games (Buffalo, 1975). Jets said: "It makes it so easy on the offense when your defense is playing like that. . . . I don't care who we're playing, that's a big-time accomplishment for our team." -- Mark Sanchez, quarterback Raiders said: "I don't think we could have beaten an Oakland high school team today."

As NFL divisions go, the AFC West is the AFC Weirdest. Wasn't Denver supposed to be doomed? The Broncos are 4-0 for the first time since 2003, and rookie Coach Josh McDaniels , who bumbled into town by first alienating then trading Jay Cutler , is beginning to look like a star. He's even mended fences with sulky receiver Brandon Marshall , who only weeks ago wanted out of Denver in the worst way. Even more surprising, last season's 29th-ranked defense is suddenly a force of nature, ranked first in points allowed and second in yards.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the American Football League, and the four teams playing tonight -- Buffalo at New England, and San Diego at Oakland -- all began as AFL franchises. But that's not the only nostalgia NFL fans might feel. There's also the immediate. New England's Tom Brady is coming back. So is San Diego's Shawne Merriman. A doubleheader featuring the elite franchises of the AFC East and West also showcases a pair of the league's best players from both sides of the ball, both of whom missed last season with knee injuries.

He was a star player this season, dominating opponents and helping lift his team to the Super Bowl -- until he was sidelined with a leg injury. Now, he vows he'll be back -- ahead of schedule -- to play in the Super Bowl. Not Terrell Owens, but New England defensive tackle Richard Seymour. Seymour practiced Wednesday for the first time in nearly six weeks and appeared to have no problems with his injured right knee, one that kept him out of the regular-season finale and first two playoff games.

Richard Seymour shoved forward, raised his arm and slapped a Miami field-goal attempt that could have beaten New England. One week earlier, the 6-foot-6 lineman deflected two New York Giants passes that were intercepted and tipped another field-goal try. Add that to a Super Bowl title in his first year, a Pro Bowl spot in his second and a team captain position in his third, and he has emerged as one of the NFL's top defensive linemen.

Matthew Stafford won the Detroit Lions' quarterback derby. Daunte Culpepper didn't lose the job. That's what Detroit's new coach, Jim Schwartz , emphasized Monday when he made the No. 1 overall draft pick the starter for Sunday in New Orleans, when the Lions try to win for the first time in 21 months. "I've had a lot of very tough decisions in the last few days -- guys making the 53-man roster or not making it -- but none more difficult than at quarterback," he said.

A federal appeals court on Friday cleared the way for Minnesota Vikings Pat Williams and Kevin Williams to play all season, despite the NFL's attempts to suspend them for violating the league's anti-doping policy. The NFL had already said the two defensive tackles could play in Sunday's opener at Cleveland because their court fight over the suspensions would not be decided in time. "It's a big sigh of relief to know we're going to get to play the whole season," Kevin Williams said.
