NFL Roundup: Portis' Head

• Contrary to popular belief, Redskins running back Clinton Portis was not doing an impersonation of Yankees center fielder Bernie Williams chasing a fly ball while doing that cartwheel in the end zone yesterday. Good guess, though.
• We're not saying that Cincinnati was getting a little too excited about this week's game with Pittsburgh, but sheesh, they were already making a team song (with Bootsy Collins!). So yeah. Maybe a little jumping the gun there.
• Just asking: You think maybe Kenny Chesney is wondering if he "backed" the wrong Manning?
• The Eagles might have had their breakthrough moment yesterday. It would not surprise us at all to see them reel off, like, seven straight wins right now. Still, Terrell Owens' touchdown celebration didn't really make sense to us. Maybe we should Ask Jeeves?
Kyle Orton, baby. The guy's the frontrunner for Rookie of the Year, a first-place quarterback and a world-class Jack Daniels man. How do you not love that?
• Honestly, it's no fun when the Vikings win anymore. We want chaos and madness and fights and self-destructions. We find it difficult to get behind a Mike-Tice-rises-from-the-ashes storyline.
• Hey, the Buzzsaw won! Sweet.
