Well, another week of NFL football is in the books and the main question to be asked is this: who’s sweating more between Cowboys fans and Vikings fans? After Dallas seemingly had everything in their hand (home crowd, a rocky Bears team, Jay Cutler going up against Dallas’ D), it slipped into a second straight loss. Cutler stepping up and committing zero turnovers against Dallas was something to behold as the Bears might be the luckiest team to find themselves 2-0 so far this season.

Vikings fans might want to start paging for Vincent Jackson until Sidney Rice comes back later in the season. Despite Adrian Peterson running all over the Dolphins defense, three Brett Favre turnovers signaled doom for the Vikings. The defense actually did its job, holding the Fins to only two scores but with Favre still a little off with the receivers, 0-3 might be possible unless the $20 million gunslinger can take a dip into the fountain of last year’s youth to save them.

As for the rest of the league, it’s time for Show & Prove.


– The Houston Texans are for real. Despite having probably the most shaky pass coverage in the league, the Texans escaped the nation’s capital with a win unlike the Cowboys last week. Matt Schaub threw for 497 yards in the win, which means the Texans/Cowboys matchup Sunday is even more serious.

– Rolando McClain pulling off the Chris Benoit German Suplex in the Raiders W against the Rams. I salute you sir.

– One week against the Texans obviously took the Colts to another level in thrashing the Giants in Manning Bowl II. Little brother Eli got absolutely schooled by big brother, who still affirms that despite one loss, the AFC South still goes through the Colts.

– After pushing the Saints to the limit on Monday Night Football, the Niners are 0-2 but at least look a lot more impressive than their record suggests.


– The matchup of the weekend was in the Meadowlands as the Jets came back from an early Pats run to stun Tom Brady and co. 28-14. Revis Island was closed for renovations after Randy Moss once again proved his last name is a euphemism for “did you see that” catches. Question remains, was this the real Jets or was this just the Pats sputtering when they had everything going their way?

– Detroit Lions, owners of more “moral victories” than anyone showed that they have promise with Jahvid Best adding another piece to a promising puzzle. Instead, all the praise went to Mike Vick who showed he still deserves to start somewhere in the league. Although, news out of Philly has Kevin Kolb starting in Week 3. I smell a quarterback controversy coming if Kolb struggles next week.

– Chris Johnson struggles against the Steelers, it’s been proven before. By compiling only 34 yards against the Black & Yellow, Johnson’s early season prediction of 2,500 yards rushing went up in smoke along with his 12-game 100-yard rushing streak. Maybe Vince Young’s starting job could be as well.
