    Tale Of The Tape: Denver Broncos At San Diego Chargers

    The Broncos should be in excellent form for their first road game against a divisional opponent. Peyton Manning should be at his best and most alert form in this game.

    Tale Of The Tape: Houston Texans At Arizona Cardinals

    The nightmare just continues to get worse for the Texans. After coming out against the Indianapolis Colts in top form and building a sizable first-half lead, the Texans fell apart in the second half and lost the game.

    Tale Of The Tape: Carolina Panthers At San Francisco 49ers

    Cam Newton appears to have put his inconsistency beside him and gotten on a roll. He has magnificent athletic talent and he can get the job done as a passer and a runner.

    Tale Of The Tape: Buffalo Bills At Pittsburgh Steelers

    The Bills are hoping to get Thad Lewis back in the lineup because Jeff Tuel does not seem likely to win any game, let alone one against a very angry Steelers defense that is looking for redemption.

    Tale Of The Tape: Jacksonville Jaguars At Tennessee Titans

    The Jaguars don’t often threaten on the offensive end. They rank 32nd in total offense and while some of that has to fall on Chad Henne’s shoulders.

    Tale Of The Tape: Seattle Seahawks At Atlanta Falcons

    The Seahawks are 8-1 and in first place in the NFC West, but they aren’t exactly rolling after their 27-24 overtime victory at home over the winless Tampa Bay Bucs.
