1. Hold Those Eulogies How about Broncos 31, Packers 10? Brian Griese outpassed Brett Favre, 363 yards to 120. Olandis Gary outrushed Dorsey Levens, 124 yards to 12 and had two more carries (37) than Green Bay had plays from scrimmage. Denver's finished? Not so fast.
2. Coming-Out Parties Redskins rookie cornerback Champ Bailey, 21, became the youngest NFL player ever to pick off three passes in a game in Washington's 24-10 win at Arizona. He returned the first interception 59 yards for a touchdown. Then there was the debut of 72-year-old Bill Arnsparger as a Redskins defensive coach. After watching his team give up 118 points in its first four games, coach Norv Turner summoned Arnsparger out of retirement. "There's nothing wrong with admitting to certain things you've come up short on," defensive coordinator Mike Nolan said.
3. Double Trouble The Falcons geared up to stop the Rams' vaunted passing attack, so all Marshall Faulk did was run for 181 yards in a 41-13 St. Louis victory. "It's a great feeling," said Rams free safety Keith Lyle. "Everything we're doing is working."
