• Pittsburgh 17, Carolina 0. The Steelers have picked a pretty good time to start playing decent football. They're all over the Panthers right now, taking a 17-3 lead into the half. Willie Parker has 72 yards rushing, Ben Roethlisberger has a rushing touchdown, and the Panthers have been held to 8 yards rushing on 5 carries.

• Patriots 27, Texans 0. Tom Brady's taking the Bridget Moynahan break-up pretty hard, throwing for two touchdowns in the first half against the Texans. The lone bright spot for the Texans has been Ron Dayne, and... that's just not a sentence you ever want to hear. David Carr, who I'm beginning to think isn't a franchise quarterback, is 6-of-13 for 59 yards and 2 touchdowns at the moment.

• Ravens 17, Browns 10. Steve McNair has some kind of a hand injury, but it doesn't matter to the Ravens. You know, why? Because they still had Kyle Boller. Thank goodness the Ravens were able to resist trading him to one of the legions of teams that wanted to acquire him in a trade. The two or three 1st round draft picks they could've gotten were tempting, but they showed restraint. He's 6-of-9 for 73 yards, a touchdown, and an interception.
