Any Given Sunday: Vikings over 49ers

The Vikings take down the 49ers with a heavy dose of their short passing game, and some nifty misdirection with Percy Harvin.

Any Given Sunday: Chargers over Colts

San Diego, with Norv Turner at the helm, went into Indianapolis and beat the defending champions. Impossible, right? It took the development of a well-executed downfield passing attack made possible by an injury to Dwight Freeney. Are they up to the challenge of taking down the Patriots? In a word, "Volek."

Any Given Sunday: Giants over Buccaneers

The way to beat the Giants is to stop the run, take away the deep pass, and make Eli Manning beat you with precise throws, right? The Bucs tried that but were thwarted by Manning, who was exceptionally accurate. Meanwhile, a fierce pass rush and a banged-up Joey Galloway combined to shut down the Tampa Bay offense.

Any Given Sunday: Redskins over Vikings

The Vikings won five straight games by pounding the rock and stopping the run. What happens when the other team loads the box against Adrian Peterson and decides to throw the ball against their defensive backs in man coverage? Answer: A loss, and very likely a January tee time.

Any Given Sunday: Eagles over Cowboys

The Eagles finally win a close one over the no-longer-dominant Cowboys. An injured quarterback is forcing throws to his closely-covered primary receiver, so why consider the running game with one of the game's top backs? For the Eagles, Donovan McNabb is starting to regain his elusiveness, which could open up the offense.

Any Given Sunday: Texans over Buccaneers

The Buccaneers lost, but maybe a little perspective is in order. Luke McCown runs out of magic on third down. Andre Johnson makes the Texans a radically different team. Sage Rosenfels is a competent NFL quarterback. Plus, the story of two stud defensive ends who took very different paths to the NFL.
