This is a major blow to a team many expected to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. Kris Jenkins tore his ACL in Sunday's opener against the Saints. He'll miss the rest of the season. Jenkins established himself as one of the best players in football in 2003, but he missed 12 games last year with a shoulder injury and now won't be on the field again until 2006.

A Super Bowl berth could be decided by the Patriots' ability to contain Le'Veon Bell -- and by Pittsburgh's ability to avoid their usual defensive breakdowns against New England.
