I will make the 5 observations, some head scratching, some others surprising.

1) The Oakland Raiders are for real. Both sides of the ball, two weeks in a row. Who would think that first week in November, Raiders-Chiefs would be a pivotal matchup? If the Raiders continue to run the ball this well, (you heard it here first) they could present real matchup problems to a team like the Colts in the playoffs this year. If you think now,two years later, about the Richard Seymour for a first round pick next year, who got the better end of it? At this rate, the Patriots pick will probably be in the lower regions of the first round.

2) Clay Matthews of the Packers will be a strong candidate for defensive player of the year award. I had the misfortune of watching that game yesterday, and though brutal, it can't be understated that if the Packers did not lose four defensive starters, a suspended player starter (Jolly) plus Ryan Grant and Jermichael Finley, the Packers would probably be a one loss team right now. Dom Capers isn't a head coach, but man, he's a damn good defensive coordinator.

3) The Cowboys should take notes on the Buffalo Bills effort. They are the least talented team in the NFL, but they try, and almost won on the road in Arrowhead Stadium. The Cowboys, conversely, are not. Forgetting about the Romo injury for a second, it does NOT excuse that defense from the dismal performance yesterday. David Gerrard looked like Johnny Unitas.

4) On the ball that Randy Moss was interfered on, if he continued on through the play, full effort, instead of bitching and moaning to the referees, he would have caught the pass and scored.

5) In that same game, when Favre was knocked out of the game at the end, and subsequently carted off the field, the close up camera angles made me think it was fitting it was Halloween: he looked like a mummy. 41 going on 81. It was bizarre. He looked like he died about 15 years ago and someone forgot to tell him to quit moving.

I know, right??

My observation for the week..maybe someone should test the water they are giving the Titans to drink. Aggression running rampant over there. First it was Britts bar brawl and now Donny Nickey ejected for punching that poor sideline offical. Maybe they will cool off on their bye week!

ANYBODY looks good playing against Dallas right now. This team has flat quit.

About halfway through the third quarter I wondered if Rex Ryan made a mistake not taking a field goal after getting down to the one yard line and going for it on fourth down. The Jets missed big plays all day long in the passing game. Either Sanchez wasn’t seeing open guys are they were dropping balls on him. Give Green Bay credit for playing four quarters of tough defensive football.

McNabb got thrown under the bus and had it put in reverse and rolled back over him.

The Raiders have had a lot of offensive weapons of the last two years. They are getting some halfway decent quarterback play and the defense is playing better.

Josh Freeman is one of the most physically gifted quarterbacks in the NFL. I saw him play a couple of games at Kansas State and knew in his junior year he was an NFL player. He's even stronger now than he was back in college. I'm not surprised he's going well in Tampa Bay.

The Bills will get one this year. I know it. I was hoping they would've at least tied Kansas City. Sadly they didn't. But hey. I think three times the charm for the Bills. And how bout them Cowboys?! The Bills of the NFC lmao

As a Bears fan I almost agree with this. The Bears are really bad, if the Bills can put up 24+ points they should win. How depressing
