Some perspective, please. "That's just the way a lot of kids are today," said wise old Chicago linebacker Mike Singletary. "They talk more."

STATS OF THE WEEK

?The Seahawks-Chiefs game was marred by 20 penalties, including one (15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct) against Seattle sales and marketing director Reggie McKenzie, a regular on the Seahawks' sideline. A former guard for Buffalo and Seattle, McKenzie argued a call with an official.

? NFL rushing leader Marion Butts of the Chargers has been tackled for a loss only once in his last 117 carries. He rushed 16 times for 114 yards in a 19-7 win against the Broncos to increase his season total to 827 yards.

? Marcus Dupree's first carries since 1985 came on the last four plays of the Rams' 31-7 loss to the Giants. A former Oklahoma freshman sensation who gave up the game after injuring his knee while playing in the USFL, Dupree gained one, seven, 10 and four yards. "I took a lick, the same old lick," he said. "It hasn't changed."
