Once again, the Patriots and Colts are 1-2 in this week's DVOA ratings, and they are closer than you might think. In fact, the difference between them comes down to one unit: special teams -- and, in particular, one very ironic position. And speaking of special teams, what is Seattle doing at number one?

The Bills finally finished the deal, holding on for an upset of Baltimore. Of course, the Ravens are not all that impressive a team to beat -- they have no vertical pass threat and a flimsy pass defense. Kyle Boller is not the answer in Baltimore, but there is no guarantee Trent Edwards is the answer in Buffalo.

It seems that every national-championship season is marked by one special play. Did LSU -- courtesy of Les Miles' perfectly illogical call to go for a touchdown -- just have its memorable moment? Plus, the JLS Trophy and the latest BlogPoll ballot.

Kickers set records and start fights. The Patriots are automatic, and so are the Rams (in a different way, of course). Everyone says kind things about Trent Edwards, the Cover-2 is debated, and Matt Vasgersian cooks Tiki Barber's goose in a very wide-ranging Audibles.

The Giants have been driving quarterbacks crazy by putting Michael Strahan, Osi Umenyiora, Jason Tuck, and Mathias Kiwanuka on the field at the same time. As Mike Tanier learns this week, there's more to this "Four Aces" package than just speed. Find out how the Giants are using athleticism, creativity, and discipline to make life miserable for offenses.

This week, Roy Williams devotes his life to comic books and pizza, everyone says something mean about a tight end, the Chargers get way too happy about their new wide receiver, and Willis McGahee tries to make nice with the city of Buffalo.

Brian Fremeau is back with the season's first set of FEI Ratings. If you are an SEC fan who feels the conference is punished for being ultra-competitive, you will be happy. If you are a Boston College or Ohio State alum, well, not so much.

Bill takes a look at the ten most successful in-season swaps in NFL history. If you even remember the man who shows up twice, let alone name him, you have our utmost respect. Plus: the Packers' likely draft strategy, an unlikely KCW winner, and Jason Beattie's very old new cartoon.
