1. This Guy Knows Football
Think Mike Holmgren has had an impact in his inaugural season in Seattle? For the first time in their 24-year history the Sea-hawks entered Sunday's play with a two-game lead in the AFC West. Then they improved their record to 8-2 with a 31-19 victory over the Chiefs, winning at Arrowhead Stadium for the first time since 1990.
2. Automatica Gramatica
That is the nickname of Martin (pronounced mar-TEEN) Gramatica, and it's what the Bucs' rookie kicker was on Sunday against the Falcons. On a day the Tampa Bay offense failed to score a touchdown—surprise!—Gramatica kicked four field goals, including 50-and 53-yarders in the last six minutes, to lift the Bucs to a 19-10 win over Atlanta.
3. Miller Time
Dumped by four teams, Jim Miller has the following numbers to show for his two games as the Bears' starting quarterback: 68.6% completion rate, four touchdown passes, one interception and a stunning 779 yards through the air. "Where he leads, we will follow," Chicago tackle James (Big Cat) Williams said after a 23-20 overtime win over the Chargers.
