Among the tidbits in this week's Numbers Crunching: The Steelers defense could (maybe) slow down Chris Johnson, the Cardinals should stay spread against Atlanta, and the Panthers should break a lot of tackles this week.

Is 2010 destined to head down the same path as 2007, a season marked by unexpected upsets and poll instability? Our projected win expectations suggest there may very well be several elite teams with damaged resumes at season's end. Boise State and TCU are already in prime position to take advantage.

As the first Any Given Sunday of the season points out, it isn't Houston's victory over Indianapolis that is important. It's how the Texans won, finally showing a running game to compliment their passing game and exposing the return of Indy's run defense issues.

The first ESPN Insider MNF feature has fun with similarity scores for the young running backs playing this Monday night: Jamaal Charles, Ray Rice, and Shonn Greene. (Ryan Mathews, of course, can't have scores since he's a rookie.) Before you click on the piece, see if you can name the only two players other than Charles to average 5.75 yards per carry with at least 150 carries (since 1978).
