At our Cowboys site, Mike Fisher says, "This
season’s battle for the title of 'NFL’s Best Team' figures to change hands
as frequently, as violently and sometimes as clumsily as stolen O.J. Simpson
memorabilia in Sin City." And as he compares the Cowboys to some of the
other top teams in the league, he points out that Dallas' next opponent -- the
Chicago Bears -- have an offense "so limp they oughta be asking Wade Wilson
to ship ‘em his leftover samples." Don't miss this Scout.com
At our Lions site, Nate Caminata says, "No
one will ever replace Steve Yzerman as the city of Detroit's sports hero.
But for one afternoon, at least, Lions' quarterback Jon Kitna ingrained himself
in Motown sports lore." Kitna came back from a concussion to help the Lions
secure a 20-17 win over the Vikings to push their record to 2-0. Learn more

Brett Favre's performance on Sunday against the Giants evoked this comment
from former NFL fullback Harry Sidney at our Green Bay site. "What I
witnessed on Sunday reminded me of the mid 1990’s as he ran the West Coast

by yard. Even though his passing average was very good, what he did with the
ball was even better," he said. Read his analysis of the offensive and
defensive effort by the Packers in this Scout.com

Our Chiefs team expert says that after watching Kansas City's offensive
play-calling over the past two weeks, head coach Herman Edwards may need to take
over the offensive play-calling instead of relying on offensive coordinator Mike
Solari. "His offense had four trips inside the Bears’ 30-yard line in the

Scout.com NFL analyst Chris Steuber thinks it's time for the Cowboys to abandon the tandem running back approach in Dallas and make Marion Barber the feature back. "Barber is by far the better and more complete back between the two. When Barber's in the game, you see more energy out of the offense," he says. And check out his commentary on the Browns, Packers, Chargers, Rams, Jets and the Raiders/Broncos game in this
feature at our NFL site.

After failing to score an offensive touchdown in their season opener, the
Bears put up a second-quarter touchdown on a 2-yard pass to reserve offensive
