He was once among the NFL's best defensive linemen, but Warren Sapp is a shadow of his former self. We explore his role in the Raiders' defense in this week's installment of Every Play Counts.

The Patriots have officially slipped the bonds of reality, the first team ever to have a DVOA over 70% later than Week 5. The Colts are the best team of the past dozen years other than the Patriots. Maybe the hype is warranted this time? Plus: San Diego returns to the top five and Tennessee's defense widens its lead.

The Lions are 5-2? Really? And they're not winning with an explosive passing game, but rather an opportunistic defense? They continue to feast on mediocre offenses but that may not continue. Chicago, meanwhile, is starting to realize that leaving good enough alone in the off-season may not have been the best strategy.

Two teams remain undefeated and two more stay winless, as America now prepares for the next installment of Pats-Colts. (Too bad the Rams and Dolphins don't play each other this year!) Also, the Jets try a non-defense defense, Andy Reid gets cute in the red zone, Frank Gore tries to remember what the red zone looks like, and the Saints and Chargers continue their positive turnarounds.

In this week's quote extravaganza, Chad Johnson makes Keyshawn Johnson look like a team-oriented player, Peyton Manning disses Tony Kornheiser, and Ray Lewis scares the hell out of everyone. Still.

The unbeaten teams climb in this week's Fremeau Efficiency Index -- but still rank behind 5-3 Auburn. And how far does South Florida fall in our new college football ratings after losing to Rutgers? Not as far as you'd expect -- not by a long shot.
