Peyton Apologists Scramble to Prepare For Monday

It's always a bit difficult for a quarterback to lose a favorite receiver and a couple of offensive linemen, but Peyton is making it look torturous. Even with Reggie Wayne and Dallas Clark Peyton has gone 12-26 for 104 yards and an interception. If they can't find a way to put up some more points they could wind up losing to the Chiefs in their own stadium. Kansas City 10 - Indianapolis 10

Andre's back, baby! I love me some Andre Johnson (and not just because my team in the Yahoo(!) blogger league has been tanking without him) and so does Matt Schaub. The quarterback is 20/29 for 279 yards and two touchdowns with 105 yards and one score to his favorite receiver. Reggie Bush has 19 touches but only 63 yards while Mario Williams has three tackles, a sack, and a forced fumble. Let the debate begin anew! Houston 20 - New Orleans 10

This game blows. Remember how the Lions and Giants were supposed to entertain us with a display of aerial mastery? Yeah, no so much. I've been forced to watch just about every second of this game and it hasn't been pretty. Balls and players have been dropping to the ground at a startling rate, including Mathias Kiwanuka who suffered a broken leg. Michael Strahan has sacked Jon Kitna three times. New York 16 - Detroit 3 Update: Hey, Calvin Johnson just made an awesome touchdown catch. I take it all back. New York 16 - Detroit 10

Old guys need more painkillers. Green Bay sure seems to be rolling through the NFC with ease (although Gibbs handed them one game). They're currently destroying Carolina which is good news for fans of teams with shitty coaches who are really hoping that John Fox becomes available by some miracle. Favre's gone over 200 yards with a trio of scores. Ryan Grant is still looking pretty damn good, which just goes to prove the point that running backs do in fact grow on trees.

Update: Carson Palmer just threw another touchdown pass to Antrel Rolle.
