After all the controversy, the backlash against the backlash, the media crush, and a season full of teams who played them increasingly closely, the New England Patriots beat the New York Giants on Saturday night to run their regular-season record to 16-0. Congratulations to the Patriots, and a salute to the Giants, who played a great game in defeat.

Looking for surprises? Look elsewhere. The third annual Too Deep Zone All-Rookie Team has all the names you expect: Peterson, Ugoh, Willis, Edwards, Okoye. But Mike Tanier does have a few tricks up his sleeve, including a snub for a Pro Bowl kicker. Find out who made the cut this year.

This week, Warren Sapp leads a meltdown in Jacksonville, Philip Rivers impersonates Warren Sapp in Denver, and Herman Edwards explains Brodie Croyle's aura. Seriously. All this, plus Wade Phillips' daughter talks about stripping in public!

Bill has nostalgia for an age yet to come, when his fantasy leagues stop playing their championships in Week 17. He looks back at some great performances from otherwise-forgotten folk in this week's Scramble. Plus: You know Warren Sapp can't help it, he just can't help it.

The Patriots stay on top, but could the second-best team in football right now really be the Jacksonville Jaguars? Plus: Green Bay tumbles, the 49ers climb out of the gutters of history, and defensive parity gets even stronger. NOTE: Both DVOA Premium and Loser League are now updated through Week 16.

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.

"Win and you're in" should be good motivation, but in Week 16 the teams playing out the string rose up and fought back. Also: John DiGiorgio enters the realm of FO favorites, Shaun Alexander experiences the sensation of actual blocking, and Warren Sapp just flat-out loses his mind.

A few weeks ago the Steelers' defense looked good enough to make Pittsburgh a legitimate threat to Indianapolis and New England in the AFC. Now, not so much. What has changed? We examine the Steelers' subpar performance against the Rams in an early holiday-week installment of Every Play Counts.

Here's a look at our game charting data for defensive backs through Week 13. Which team's cornerbacks might be a lot better than we realized? Which Pro Bowl selection was a lifetime achievement award for a player having unexpected struggles in 2007? And how astonishingly bad has Jason David really been?
