Team Commentary
SAN DIEGO CHARGERS The Chargers are not only riding the longest win streak in football, but they are matched up against a Jets team that is overachieving.  Antonio Gates is the key to defeating the Jets blitz-happy D.  He and Phillip Rivers are more than up to the task.
INDIANAPOLIS COLTS Peyton Manning and the Colts might get the rust knocked off by the Ravens defense in early going, but is there anyone you have more faith in during the 4th quarter than Manning?
MINNESOTA VIKINGS Minnesota has been patiently awaiting this moment for the last month.  With playmakers all over the field on both sides of the ball, the Vikings have more than enough talent to run the table.  The only question is do they have the heart? 
NEW ORLEANS SAINTS No one can question how good the Saints are on offfense.  Unfortuantley for them, their opponent this week can score just as many points as New Orleans can.  It will all come down the defense making a few big plays.
DALLAS COWBOYS Dallas has proven for the second straight week that they can beat a team that cannot (or will not) run the ball.  Now they need to prove they can beat a complete football team, and on the road no less.
ARIZONA CARDINALS The Cardinals are coming off of an overtime victory in one of the most exciting playoff games in recent history.  This weekend's game in Nawlans should be just as exciting …
NEW YORK JETS New York looked impressive on both sides of the ball in their convincing win over the Bengals.  San Diego, however, plays at a completely higher level than Cincy.  The Jets are going to need an almost perfect game from their defense if they hope to pull off a second straight road upset.
BALTIMORE RAVENS The Ravens beat down an aged Patriots squad in Foxboro last week.  It will be a tall order to repeat that success in Indianapolis.
