Running back LaMont Jordan may be falling out of favor in Oakland. Backup Justin Fargas is getting more work and for longer stretches, especially with Jordan nursing a sore back. (Jordan suited up but didn't play in Sunday's 22--9 win over Arizona.) The Raiders expected Jordan to become their workhorse back, but Fargas's speed and instincts intrigue them. A 2003 third-rounder, Fargas (above) is in the final year of his contract, so Oakland will have to consider his long-term potential.... After all the talk about J.P. Losman's progress, the Buffalo QB has had three straight lousy outings, the latest being a two-fumble, one-interception game in a 28--6 loss to New England. Losman has six touchdown passes, six interceptions and five fumbles in seven games.... The Seahawks have played three teams that run the base Cover 2—Detroit, Chicago and Minnesota—and scored a total of one touchdown.
