What the hell is going on with the Patriots? This is MIAMI they're playing!

Ronnie Brown's playing like a Hall of Famer today - and I think that says more about the Patriot defense than Ronnie Brown. Do the Pats have some defensive players hurt?

I know losing Brady hurt the team, but he didn't play defense. I'm just really surprised that they're falling apart the way they are today.

Brown's not exactly lighting it up all over - he's just getting redzone carries. The real story is Pennington only missing 2 passes so far.

No, nobody is injured. They are getting outcoached so far, though.

Carson Palmer should try throwing to a wide reciever.

I can't believe I'm typing this, but the Vikings should put Tavaris back in

The Dolphins are killing the notion of a pro offense today. These are plays you would expect from a college team and they are working against the Pats. I'm impressed.

Bears had a nice 3rd quarter - TD +2 and Orton escaped a couple of sacks.
