For this week's NBC Sports column previewing Sunday Night Football, I use DVOA to help me look at some of the reasons behind (or in one case, not behind) New England's offensive improvement in their last five games.

Austin Davis' stint as a starting quarterback in the NFL is over after eight games. The St. Louis Rams have benched the second-year player in favor of veteran Shaun Hill, who started in Week 1 but was knocked out of the game with a thigh injury.

Wow, the NFC West just got crushed this weekend. You already knew about Carson Palmer tearing his ACL. This morning, we have reports that the Seahawks have lost defensive tackle Brandon Mebane for the year with a torn hamstring. He's probably the most important player in their front seven. And there are reports that Patrick Willis' turf toe is so bad that the 49ers will be forced to put him on injured reserve. Ugh. The Seahawks have Kevin Williams to plug in for Mebane, but depth is a serious problem on that defensive line.

Peter King still has faith in "the NFC's best team." Plus: how the Lions have eliminated "dumb mistakes," the Jets' keys to shutting down Pittsburgh's aerial attack, and the Bears' chances of turning their season around (spoiler: slim).

Carson Palmer was not the only prominent starter on a playoff contender who will miss the rest of the season.

Also, the Bears make the rest of us hate them as much as they hate themselves.

The kicker just got thrown out the window. And he was on fire.

Carson Palmer, who was set to be a free agent at the end of the season, has signed a three-year extension with the Arizona Cardinals. ESPN's Adam Schefter says the deal is worth about $50 million in total value.

Beyond the immediate considerations of Hundley's potential, the quarterback's tape raises larger questions about the position.
