This week: How the replacement refs can help the Cardinals surprise the Eagles, and why the placement of cornerbacks is critically important in this game. "Cover Watch" looks at San Francisco at Minnesota. A change this week: From now on, we're only going to cover games where the line is at least three points.

Sadly timely article from the next issue of The Atlantic, profiling Ed and Steve Sabol, including interviews with both.

Are the Cardinals really the 2003 Panthers? Are the 49ers possibly the 2002 Patriots? And are the Houston Texans the best team in the league? (Maybe, maybe, and so far it looks like it.)

The great communicator of the joy of football died after an 18-month battle with brain cancer. Share your NFL Films memories here.

Kent Babb is very, very angry. Clearly, the post-injury rebound doesn't seem to be properly post-injury rebounding in Kansas City, but still, it is just two games from a team that made the playoffs two years ago. So do readers think this is typical sports columnist overreaction and blustering, or does Babb have a point about Pioli's inability to build a roster?

Once upon a time, the Ravens brought pressure, but Michael Vick was great when pressured. Last week, the Ravens didn't bring as much pressure, and Michael Vick was awful when pressured. What wins out this Sunday?

You may have notice that FO has been attacked by spammers the last few days. (The FOA 2012 discussion board is now basically unusable.) We're working hard to fix this problem going forward. One of the problems is that the spammers are actually registering as users. This means that even registered users may have to enter CAPTCHA for comments if our filter thinks your comment is possible spam. It's also possible that comments may not appear or be blocked, and you may need to wait for us to approve new discussion board threads. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Denver, Baltimore, and New England make for a fine AFC trio atop the first Football Outsiders DVOA ratings of the year.

Vince Verhei points out just how much the Giants' Week 1 loss hurt them when it comes to winning a tight division. Based on a simulation run yesterday, the Giants' playoff odds dropped from 45.7 percent to 19.8 percent in one day. (This may be different from the odds posted later today due to Monday Night Football results.)

Great job by Will Brinson at CBS Sportsline. This is why all-22 film for the media will be great. Plus, now I can ask Andy Benoit to write about something else next week, because somebody else took care of Kevin Ogletree for us.
