Had the Jaguars had a healthy Byron Leftwich at QB they would really be the right team to end the Colts undefeated run. However, with David Garrad under center it would be hard to imagine the Jaguars winning this one. It will still be close, but in the end the Colts will be too tough and will reach 13-0.
What do Mike Martz and Daunte Culpepper have in common? Each may be sitting and watching their jobs go bye bye. The Vikings are 5-0 since Brad Johnson took over at QB for the injured Culpepper while nobody on the Rams wants Martz anywhere near the team. Culpepper maybe lucky in that Johnson is 37 but Martz won’t be as fortunate as the
The Jets season has been an unmitigated disaster. The Raiders have not been much better, and now they are changing Quarterbacks.

Fearful of losing Reggie Bush the Texans decide to lay down from opening kick off in this one as the Titans benefiting from playing teams that are actually worse then they are win for the 2nd time in 3 games. Look for a big game from Steve McNair while David Carr continues to be the Sack King.

The Eagles are going through the season from hell. Coming off a NFC Championship, this season has been nothing but pain, as Donovan McNabb suffered a Sports hernia, while Coach Andy Reid had a pain in his ass from the now departed Terrell Owens, now Brian Westbrook is lost with a foot injury. The Giants coming in should bring out a good game in the Eagles but it won’t bring a win.

Maybe a loss here would help the fans achieve that goal.
The Falcons need a win badly and on Monday Night Football they do just that as Michael Vick shines brightly in the primetime spotlight with a big game against a Saints team playing without fire or desire.
