• The funny thing about Brandon Jacobs is that when he actually feels like trying he can be a productive football player capable of punishing opponents with his size and grinding the clock down. So in short, he can be the typical power runner. Now he just has to master that trying part.
  • Something strange happened in the Dolphins’ locker room after their win over Kansas City yesterday. People were smiling.
  • Those smiles came after another interesting week of practice highlighted by Brandon Marshall reportedly throwing a ball at Vontae Davis’ face from point-blank range.
  • With Gerald McCoy done for the season, rookie Da’Quan Bowers could play a larger role on Tampa’s defensive line.
  • As part of their 13 thoughts wrapping up Sunday’s action, Blogging the Boys noted that the Patriots have now scored 20 or fewer points in three straight games, a streak that started against the Cowboys three weeks ago. Coincidence? Probably not.

  • DeMarco Murray has 466 rushing yards in just three games as a starting running back, and broke a stretch of rushing futility in Dallas by already becoming the first Cowboy since 2004 with multiple 100-yard games in a season.

  • Philip Rivers is flattered by your concern and appreciates your theories that attempt to diagnose why he sucks so much right now. But other than the uncharacteristically brutal numbers, there’s nothing wrong. Damn numbers.
  • It’s quite rare that the Internet witnesses sober, unbiased commentary from a Steelers supporter after a Steelers loss. So soak it in, because the recap from Behind the Steel Curtain on last night’s loss will soon be a relic.
