Quarterback Trent Green scored three touchdowns Saturday and Vaughn Dunbar rushed for 205 yards as Indiana rallied for a 28-20 Big Ten victory over Wisconsin. Wisconsin, 3-4 overall and 0-4 in the Big Ten, took a 17-0 halftime lead before the Hoosiers (4-2-1, 3-1), playing without Coach Bill Mallory, battled back. Mallory was suspended from Saturday's game for violating a Big Ten rule by criticizing game officials and conference personnel after Indiana's 24-16 loss at Michigan a week earlier.

Quarterback Trent Green sustained a "very, very severe concussion" when his head was slammed into the ground while being tackled by Cincinnati's Robert Geathers and will be hospitalized at least until today, the Kansas City Chiefs said Monday. "He's feeling much better," Chiefs President Carl Peterson said. "But he has a very king-sized headache. Hopefully he'll be able to go home tomorrow." The two-time Pro bowl quarterback will be listed as questionable this week at Denver.

Trent Green was perfect. In their own sad and historic way, so were the Detroit Lions. Becoming just the second quarterback this season with a perfect quarterback rating of 158.3, Green threw three touchdown passes in a 45-17 victory that clinched Kansas City's first AFC West title since 1997. The Lions (4-10), despite their first 100-yard rushing game in more than a year, did what they've done without fail for almost three full seasons, losing on the road.

This would be a good week for Trent Green bashers to give it a rest. With his finest game since 1999, Green threw five touchdown passes--three to Tony Gonzalez--to lead Kansas City past previously unbeaten Miami, 48-30, Sunday. He even ran for 48 yards and threw a textbook block on Priest Holmes' touchdown run. "It's fun to have a day like that," said Green, who completed 24 of 34 passes for 328 yards. "Throw the block in there and that makes it that much more enjoyable."

Trent Green looked and felt like new. He was at his best when Kansas City needed him most. After passing for barely 50 yards in his return from a 10-week layoff, the two-time Pro Bowl quarterback threw for 50 yards in a game-winning fourth-quarter drive. Connecting on three of five passes in the final minutes, Green set up Larry Johnson's one-yard go-ahead touchdown run and rallied the Chiefs past Oakland, 17-13, Sunday.

Now it's Carson Palmer's turn to return the kindness and reach out to Trent Green. When Palmer went down in January because of a knee injury, Green was one of the first to call the Cincinnati quarterback. Although the two barely knew each other, Green offered words of encouragement, advice drawn upon his own experience with career-threatening knee problems.
