    Jets @ Bengals (-6 1/2)
    Cowboys (+3) @ Lions

    Steelers @ Raiders (the 1970's aren't walking through that door)
    Panthers @ Bucs

    Mike Shanahan returns to Denver. Don't know if he'll have dinner at Shanahan's or Elway's the night before.

    MNF is dy-no-mite
    The Rams, staring Kellen Clemens (no relation to Clarence?) at home against the Seahawks

    Are you referring to a restaurant or a home?

    I am really curious to see what sort of reception he gets in Denver. He did, after all, win two Super Bowls, which Andy Reid never did in Philadelphia.

    My favorite betting number of the weekend would be actual head count of attendance at that game while the Cardinals play WS Game 5 at the same time. I'm saying football draws 6,200 max.

    If Carolina manages to win Thursday, the Panthers are 4-3. Chance at a Wild Card berth?

    By default, Redskins vs. Broncos is probably the most interesting matchup.

    It's a remarkably bad week.

    Rex being dumb might have helped him -- it sounds like he was playing dumb on his reaction to the FG penalty and everyone bought it.


    In fact, the Jets' sideline alerted the officiating crew during the game to watch out for it, a person familiar with the situation told ESPN.com Monday.

    After some of the injuries last week, it seems possible that Carolina could enter the mix for the last WC spot. I would have bet that the second place team in the NFC North would have been the favorite, but it now seems possible that Carolina could be in the mix.

    Not a game that week that you'd stay home to watch on purpose
