The Patriots needed to blitz Mark Sanchez on Sunday, and they didn't. Will the Steelers make the same mistake? And will the Jets play the same heavy coverage-oriented defense against Ben Roethlisberger that they played against Tom Brady?

To beat the Kansas City Chiefs, you have to stop three players: Jamaal Charles, Dwayne Bowe, and Tamba Hali. The Raiders were able to stop two of them. How many will the Ravens be able to stop?

This week: Is it sometimes better to go without star receivers? Sunday's Bengals performance seems to suggest so, and even the Chargers have a higher DVOA this year without Antonio Gates than they do with him -- he's been amazing, but the rest of the offense hasn't been quite as good when he's in the lineup. Likely coincidence, but still interesting.

Rusty Smith or Kerry Collins, does it really matter? If the Titans make the playoffs, they'll do it with defense and special teams -- and even in an upset loss, those two units still came to play against Washington.
