This week's Any Given Sunday looks at the future of the Dolphins, who desperately need a number one wide receiver and help in the middle of the front seven. Hey, you can't run a whole defense with just two really good strong safeties.

The FO crew takes on surprising comebacks in Tennessee and Atlanta, and a not-so-surprising comeback in Houston, and the continued dominance of Darrelle Revis.

First pick was obvious -- actually, first five picks are obvious. I was stunned to see sweet potatoes slip to 11, though, and sweet potato pie fall into the second round. On the other hand, I thought Chinese takeout and chitlins were pretty big reaches.

This week's Any Given Sunday does double-duty, looking at both the Oakland win over Cincinnati and the Kansas City win over Pittsburgh. Did these games represent the culmination of trends that could cost these teams their playoff spots? The answer will please Bengals fans and disappoint Steelers fans.

Last week's Any Given Sunday talked about how bad the Packers' offensive line was. Then they went out and beat the Cowboys. So what about the other half of the team? This week's Any Given Sunday talks about how their defense (top-ranked in DVOA) could drag that awful offensive line into the playoffs anyway.

The NFL fined Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler $20,000 for verbally abusing an official during the Bears' Week 9 loss to Arizona. They also fined defensive lineman Tommie Harris $7,500 for punching Arizona guard Deuce Lutui on the ground after a play.
Yes, the NFL finds foul language to be more than two-and-a-half times as offensive as physical violence.

The vicious cycle of Green Bay weakness... sacks lead to punts, punts lead to field position problems, and field position problems lead to Tampa Bay's first win of 2009.

Should the Chargers give up on LaDainian Tomlinson? Should the Redskins give up on Jason Campbell? Should the Dolphins give up on the Wildcat? Should advertisers just give up? All this and more in Audibles.

Roy Williams in 16 games since being traded to Cowboys: 33 catches, 447 yards, three touchdowns
Miles Austin in the last three games: 21 catches, 482 yards, five touchdowns.
In the story, Williams claims that all the passes thrown his way are inaccurate, while those thrown to Austin are always precise. This is a fascinating case of a man in denial.

Baltimore's domination of the previously undefeated Broncos helps show us that the Ravens are a major contender despite their 4-3 record.
