It was really only a matter of time before Chad Pennington gave way to Kellen Clemens, but time has a way of speeding up when your team is 1-7 and the offense just finished putting up three points against a very shaky Bills defense. There is no question that Clemens has a gun, and he looked good in preseason, so there really is no reason for the Jets not to play him at this point. Pennington still has some football left in him, but he is clearly better suited at this point to play a caretaker role on a team with a top defense. It's kind of a sad decline for a player who flashed real brilliance before his career was derailed by injuries.

Denver's defense carried the team all season, and carried Peyton Manning right to a second Super Bowl ring in his worst season. Carolina's offense joins long list of postseason duds from the 500-point club.
