Peter King has his awards for the quarter pole. His offensive MVP is Matt Ryan, and his defensive MVP is J.J. Watt. (We've got plenty on Watt in tomorrow's Quick Reads, as well.)

Today's upset watch looks at the Bears, fifth in VOA and underdogs on the road against Dallas, 18th. Two similar teams, with one big difference: special teams. Special teams are also the secret behind our Cover Watch, Tennessee at Houston.

I'll be doing a Reddit AMA today at 1:30pm EDT to help promote the Blogs with Balls conference in Toronto next weekend. Maybe this can help make up for the fact that I'm way behind on trying to answer reader e-mails or questions left in discussion threads. As for the conference itself, I'm appearing on a panel to discuss the use of sports analytics in the media; our old buddy Doug Farrar will also be there, on an NFL panel Friday. Link to come.

It looks like there's an agreement, and the regular officials will return tonight. Now we can get back to complaining about how nobody understands the rules for pass interference, instead of complaining about how nobody understands any of the rules, period.

Atlanta, Baltimore, and Houston are at the top of the Football Outsiders ratings after three weeks, but the Steelers are nowhere to be found. What's wrong with Pittsburgh?

While the ball is in the air, Tate can be seen shoving Green Bay cornerback Sam Shields to the ground. This should have been a penalty for offensive pass interference, which would have ended the game. It was not called and is not reviewable in instant replay ... When the players hit the ground in the end zone, the officials determined that both Tate and Jennings had possession of the ball ... Referee Wayne Elliott determined that no indisputable visual evidence existed to overturn the call on the field, and as a result, the on-field ruling of touchdown stood. The NFL Officiating Department reviewed the video today and supports the decision not to overturn the on-field ruling following the instant replay review.

This week, Peter King addresses -- what else? -- the sad state of officiating in the NFL. Plus, thoughts on Torrey Smith and his tribute to Steve Sabol.

The Lions didn't mean to actually run a play on fourth-and-1; they were trying to draw Tennessee offside. But what if they were trying to actually convert fourth-and-1? Let's run some math. (Click to read more.)
