The New York Jets have announced that second-year quarterback Geno Smith has been benched in favor of Michael Vick, who will start this weekend against Kansas City. Smith's DVOA of -36.0% this season ranks 32nd out of 34 quarterbacks with at least 100 pass plays, better only than rookies Teddy Bridgewater and Blake Bortles. In his limited action this season (58 plays), Vick's DVOA is -65.0%, so this may not be much of an upgrade.

Bad years for the Rams and Bears just keep getting worse.

This article is a few days old (it was written in advance of the Detroit-Atlanta game in London), but it still offers an interesting look of the NFL's replay process and technological advances, contrasted with the behind-the-scenes goings on of English sporting life.

Peter King, like everyone else, was impressed with Ben Roethlisberger's big day. He's also impressed with Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, and Arizona's latest find at receiver, but he's still worried about Seattle.

Get the RSP pre-draft sample evaluation on Martavis Bryant, who has three touchdowns in two games since the Steelers made him an active contributor in the offense.

Just a little top-down synergizing on the "culture trumps scheme" paradigm.

For this week's SNF feature for NBC Sports, I wrote about the Green Bay Packer receiver leading the league in DYAR. Nope, it's Randall Cobb, not Jordy Nelson.

This was supposed to be the week Jake Locker returned to the starting lineup in Tennessee. Plans change. Jim Wyatt of The Tennesseean reports that the Titans plan to give sixth-round rookie Zach Mettenberger his first career start against Houston this Sunday.

I know what you're thinking: It's about time the New England Patriots got a little coverage on this site. The good news is this isn't a story about Bill Belichick's frosty demeanor, or Tom Brady's latest modeling gig. No, this piece by Brian Filipiak at Sons of Sam Horn breaks down the recent successes and failures of the New England run defense, and though it's a specific analysis of the Patriots, there's a lot of good stuff in here that will help explain what's going on with any other team.

The Playoff picture likely remained unchanged as the contenders all had unimpressive wins in Week 13.
