What's happening to the NFL's young quarterbacks? Ryan Leaf came down to earth in rain-swept Arrowhead Stadium. Peyton Manning keeps finding open receivers in enemy uniforms.

The Bengals over the Ravens in Baltimore. Just noticed that we need an upset, and here it is. Cincinnati played aggressive defense against Green Bay; it's just that the Bengals' offense faced an even better one.

Wonder what would happen if St. Louis coach Dick Vermeil cut out practice entirely? Silly thought for the end of a column, but I do like the Rams over the Cardinals at home.
