    - Am I glad I started Bernard Scott for one of my bye week fillers today? Yes I am. Scott just put Cincy back on top with a short TD run.

    - Matt Cassel just threw his fourth TD pass of the game… Steve Breaston caught his second of the game. The Chiefs take the lead for the first time today.

    - I’ve seen it all now. Just wait till you see the highlights from the Giants/Seattle game. Eli Manning threw a pass up for grabs to Victor Cruz… a pass that should have been intercepted. Instead, it was tipped and tipped and Cruz makes the catch and runs 20 yards for a TD. Unreal. They add the two-point conversion and now they lead, 22-19.

    - The Eagles won’t die. DeSean Jackson and LeSean McCoy both had big plays on this latest drive and Jackson was the recipient of a 31-yard TD pass from Vick. 31-21.

    - Somebody blew coverage in Cincy’s secondary… because Jason Hill was wide open for a 74-yard TD pass. Jags take the lead, 20-16. It’s Jacksonville’s first, second-half touchdown of the year.

    - Greg Olsen got a chance to redeem himself… and he did. Of course, the play is under review, but it appears it was good. That would be Newton’s second passing TD to go along with one rushing TD.

    - Isaac Redman came off the field with hamstring injury of some sort. Jonathan Dwyer is in.

    - Greg Olsen just dropped a TD from Cam Newton on third and goal, but Newton was roughed and they get a fresh set of downs.

    - Beanie Wells just got stopped on fourth-and-one. Long day for the Cardinals as they trail 31-10.

    - Sebass just kicked his third straight field goal of over 50 yards.

    - 4th turnover by the Eagles. Jason Avant had the ball ripped from his arms after a 30-yard gain. Buffalo has it in PLUS territory with a 28-14 lead.

    - So the Titans recover an onside kick after a score, and on the first play from scrimmage Matt Hasselbeck is picked off. Steelers ball. How about Mike Wallace please???

    - Seattle QB Tarvaris Jackson was taken to the locker room with a shoulder injury. Charlie Whitehurst is in after the Seahawks just got a safety against the Giants.

    - Nate Washington owners… to which I am one, have to be ready to hang themselves. How many heartbreaks can he have??? He was tripped up at the half-yard line. !!$^#@$^#@^ Chris Johnson runs it in from a yard out.

    - Why did everyone try to talk me out of Dwayne Bowe this pre-season? Bowe was interfered with and still caught his second TD pass of the game. Matt Cassel has three TD passes today.

    - LaFell was not in. First and goal. Cam Newton… one-yard TD run. Panthers creep to within 23-20.

    - Cam Newton just hooked up with Brandon LaFell for what appears to be a 21-yard TD pass. The play is under review.

    - And as soon as I say that… Michael Vick rips off a 53-yard run followed by a 12-yard run from LeSean McCoy… touchdown. Cuts the lead to 28-14.

    - This is amazing… the Bills are WHIPPING the Eagles all over the field. Never saw that coming. WR Brad Smith from the Wildcat scored on a five-yard run. 28-7 Bills. #Unreal.

    - I don’t know how many targets Ben Obamanu has, but it’s going to be double digits before this game is over. Is he now the #1 target in Seattle? Hello, Sidney Rice anyone?

    - It would figure that on a day Big Ben has four TD passes… Mike Wallace would have none of them. Unreal. Hines Ward????

    - Michael Vick… another bone-headed play to end the first half. He decides to take his time with only 9 seconds left before halftime. He uses all 9 seconds to throw an incompletion… and now the Eagles can’t kick a field goal. DOH!!

    - Matt Cassel has his second TD pass of the game… this time to WR Steve Breaston. Chiefs draw closer.

    - Giants two-minute offense pays off. Eli Manning connects with Hakeem Nicks with just a few seconds left to tie the game at 14.

    - Ryan Fitzpatrick picked off by Jamar Chaney. Now Michael Vick has the Eagles inside the Buffalo 30 with :13 seconds remaining.

    - Raiders WR Derrius Heyward-Bey just ripped off a pretty good run after catch and scored Oakland’s first TD of the game from 35 yards away. They go for two and miss. 14-12 Texans.

    - Darren McFadden owners have to be pulling their hair out. He just ripped off a 42-yard run to the one-yard-line, but it was called back for holding.

    - Texans OLB Mario Williams just left the game with a pectoral injury and WILL NOT RETURN.

    - After a review, Colts RB Delone Carter was given a touchdown. Colts extend to 17-7.

    - I’m glad I told a few people to start DeAngelo Williams today, because I know there were a few that I told to bench him. Williams just ripped off a 69-yd. TD run on a toss play. They draw closer to New Orleans, 17-13.

    - Jermaine Gresham just put Cincy on the board with a nice catch from Andy Dalton. But Mike Nugent missed his first ever extra point so the game is tied at 13.

    - Eli Manning back to his old tricks. Horrible pass into double coverage. Seattle ball in good field position.

    - Cincinnati just converted a fourth-and-seven pass to WR A.J. Green.

    - By the way… that latest Pittsburgh TD pass from Big Ben was to backup TE David Johnson. 21-3 Steelers over the Titans. Roethlisberger came limping off the field after that TD pass.

    - How is it the Giants constantly draft GREAT defensive ends?? Jason Pierre-Paul just planted Tarvaris Jackson in the turf as the Seahawks were driving.

    - Why is it on a week that no one suggests starting Matt Schaub he decides to throw two TDs in the first half? He’s too erratic for me.

    - Saints rookie RB Mark Ingram just scored from a yard out. With the extra point the Saints will lead 17-6.

    - ROFL… Michael Vick was just picked off again… but this time the Bills DST returned it for a TD. I’m so glad the Ravens had a bye week… it gave me the chance to pick up the Bills DST in two leagues.

    - Just one bright spot in Kansas City… and he scored again. Dwayne Bowe has the Chiefs on the board, but they still trail by two scores.

    - Steelers backup RB Jonathan Dwyer just ripped off a 74-yard run when the Titans least expected it.

    - Another Steelers offensive line injury. We’ll get you a name in a minute.

    - Seattle tries to get fancy and hand off to their FB. He fumbles at the goal line. Giants recover and avoid a 21-7 deficit.

    - Whoever the first person was to call the Eagles defense the “Dream Team” is a moron. David Nelson just caught a 9-yard TD pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick… Bills lead 14-7.

    - Seattle in the red zone again, already leading 14-7 over the Giants and looking for more.

    - Matt Schaub to Joel Dreessen for a 50-yard TD… it’s obvious the Raiders blew that coverage. Texans extend their lead.

    - Okay, maybe Pierre Garcon is becoming an every-week starter!! His second TD of the day in the first quarter and he’s almost over 100 yards again. That’s four TD receptions in two weeks with Curtis Painter under center. Dang.

    - How about Hines Ward with is first TD reception of the year?!?! Steelers extend their lead to 14-3.

    - Eagles in the end zone… Vick to Maclin. 7-7 with the Bills.

    - Joseph Addai’s injury is a hamstring and he’s questionable to return.

    - Michael Vick gets what he’s been begging for… a roughing the passer penalty. Eagles have the ball at the 2-yard-line… first and goal.

    - Steelers run a nice fake punt to keep a drive alive.

    - Michael Vick is limping around again, but nothing major happened. It was just a basic tackle. I’m beginning to think he’s just not built to take the rigors of the NFL anymore.

    - Adrian Peterson has his third TD of the game. Dang. 28-0 and their STILL IN THE FIRST QUARTER!!

    - Sebastian Janikowski has his SECOND 50+ yard field goal. Dude is amazing.

    - Where has this Marshawn Lynch been all season? He has over 50 yards and a touchdown already in the first quarter against the Giants.

    - Bills WR Donald Jones was just carted off the field with an unspecified injury. He will not return today.

    - Wow, a little scrappy in Carolina. After an amazing Cam Newton-to-Steve Smith TD pass, Saints S Roman Harper hit Smith after he already crossed the goal line and a fight ensued. And the fight was between Malcolm Jenkins and Smith, not Harper and Smith. There might be some fines  levied from this. Stay tuned. Then Jenkins proceeds to block the extra point. 10-6 Saints.

    - Donovan McNabb just rushed for a TD. 21-0 Vikings.

    - Marshawn Lynch is back.

    - This is getting old… Sebastian Janikowski hit a 50+ yard FG again.

    - Another Kevin Kolb turnover… sheesh. Minny, leading 14-0, has the ball in great field position.

    - Colts RB Joseph Addai limped off the field in the first quarter. His return is questionable.

    - Dang, Michael Vick was picked off again. Buffalo, leading 7-0, has the ball again.

    - Andy Dalton absolutely loves rookie WR AJ Green. They just hooked up for Cincy’s first TD of the day.

    - Kevin Kolb was picked off on his first throw of the day. And that pickoff turned into an Adrian Peterson 21-yard TD run…his second of the day.

    - Fred Jackson just scored a short TD run. 7-0 Bills after a Vick INT. I’ve never seen this many touchdown this soon in the day.

    - Eli Manning has his team in the red zone. Now he’s got them into the end zone. Touchdown pass to TE Jake Ballard. 7-7.

    - The Vikings are on the boad… guess who? Adrian Peterson from two yards out. 7-0 Vikings.

    - Nate Washington had a touchdown in his hands, but when he fell to the ground after an incredible leap the ball came out. Titans settle for a Rob Bironas FG. 3-0 Titans.

    - A lot of early TDs here in Week 5. Curtis Painter just hooked up with Pierre Garcon on a short TD. Colts lead the Chiefs, 7-0.

    - So the Seahawks have the lead over the Giants? It’s true. Seattle’s Tarvaris Jackson just hit Ben Obamanu on a short TD pass. Seattle leads 7-0.

    - Without Andre Johnson, Matt Schaub has been improvising and just hit Kevin Walter for a short TD. They lead the Raiders early 7-0. BTW… Arian Foster is okay… he was on the field for that Walter TD.

    - Uh oh, Arian Foster just limped off the field. Not sure if it was a hamstring or an ankle.

    - Maurice Jones-Drew is running over Bengals early in this game. He just scored. 7-0 Jags.

    - So Cam Newton’s first pass of the day was picked off by Patrick Robinson. What the heck??? Steve Smith ran an out route and Newton wasn’t expecting an out route. Saints first-and-goal at the three. On third down, Brees hit Jed Collins for a short TD.

    - Marshawn Lynch is the first injury of the week. He limped off the field with an ankle injury. His status is questionable.
