Terrell Owens, WR, Dallas - 7 catches, 213 yards, 1 TD
After five consecutive games of posting under 40 yards receiving, T.O. broke it open against his former team on Sunday. His yardage accounted for half of the Cowboy's total against the 49ers. Tony Romo threw for 341 yards and three touchdowns. The Cowboys are still in the playoff picture and their offense may finally be back to form.
Matt Cassel, QB, New England - 30/43, 415 yards, 3 TD, 1 Int, 1 Rush TD
No Patriot fan will ever forget Tom Brady but Cassel is doing his best to help them. For the second week in a row Brady's back-up topped the 400 mark in passing yards and the Pats totaled more than 500 yards of offense. Randy Moss took center stage with 125 yards and three scores. But Wes Welker was right there with him with 120 yards on eight catches. The team may still be struggling to run the ball but at this rate it may not matter.
Clinton Portis, RB, Washington - 29 carries, 143 yards
Portis reclaimed the lead for the leagues leading rusher with his performance against the Seahawks on Sunday. Unfortunately he was once again held out of the end zone. The Redskins stud has not scored in the last five games and has just seven touchdowns on the year. Ladell Betts did score from the one yard line for the team's only rushing touchdown of the day. Jason Cambell hooked up with Antwan Randle El for the teams other score.
Michael Turner, RB, Atlanta - 24 carries, 117 yards, 4 TD
The Falcons won a big divisional game thanks in large part to the big, strong, tree-trunk legs of Turner. With his performance on Sunday, Turner now has 13 touchdowns on the season including seven in the last three games. The Falcons put up 45 points versus the Panthers and are now very much in the thick of things in the NFC playoff race.
NY Jets Running Backs - 35 carries, 178 yards, 2 TD
The Jets pounded one of the toughest Defenses in the NFL on Sunday and pegged the Titans with their first loss of the season. Thomas Jones had the bulk of the carries, 27, but it was Leon Washington that scored twice including a 61 yard dash. Brett Favre also had a good performace, completing 25 of 32 passes for 224 yards and two scores. And, he only threw one interception. Not only did the Jets victory put Tennessee in the loss column for the first time it kept them in the lead in a tough AFC East.
Ed Reed, S, Baltimore - 2 Int, 1 TD
The Ravens did more than just take care of business on Sunday, they pounded a faltering Eagles team. Philly's only score came on a kick return as their offense was shut down by the Ravens. After throwing two interceptions and fumbling, Donovan McNabb was benched for Kevin Kolb. But it didn't matter to Baltimore as the defense continued to previal. The topper was a Reed interception that he returned 108 yards for a touchdown.
The Game Used Sock Award
Brady Quinn, QB, Cleveland - 8/18, 94 yards, 2 Int
It was only the third start in the career of the young Quinn, but that was all it took for his butt to find the bench. The Browns were not able to get things moving against a stout, no, actually, quite weak Houston defense. The good news for Quinn was that although he watched the end of the game from the sideline, Derek Anderson did not fare any better. But Anderson already has a couple of dirty socks in his drawer. Tonight Quinn gets one all to himself.
