EAGLES at COWBOYS
Dallas won't be facing the same Ty Detmer who replaced the injured Rodney Peete at quarterback and struggled in a Sept. 30 loss. This Detmer is 3-0 as a starter and has thrown for 246 yards a game. How far can he take the Eagles? Watch how he handles the NFL's best pass defense.

BRONCOS at OAKLAND
Denver's Terrell Davis may be getting more publicity, but the Raiders' own second-year runner. Napoleon Kaufman, is netting an NFL-high 6.3 yards per carry. Oakland has had a bye week to prepare for the AFC's top team, and should not be underestimated at home on a Monday night.

CHIEFS at VIKINGS
Kansas City's defense yielded 499 yards in Sunday's loss at Denver, its most porous performance since 1990, when the Oilers (led by current Vikings quarterback Warren Moon) rolled up 563.

RAMS at STEELERS
Pittsburgh running back Jerome Bettis welcomes his former team to Three Rivers Stadium. Steelers fans have taken to calling the burly Bettis, who is averaging 4.5 yards per carry, the Bus. Rams fans may soon take to calling his replacement, rookie Lawrence Phillips (2.7 per carry), the Bust.

BENGALS at RAVENS
This matchup will have an Erie feel to it. The former Cleveland Browns welcome the team that, should it fail to get a new stadium in Cincinnati, may very well be the next Cleveland Browns.
