Monday morning one-liners

The Bills defense is the first in history to allow a quarterback to throw for 300 yards in the same game that his team runs for 300 yards.

Dolphins DT Randy Starks considers himself “fortunate” to have come up with an interception that led to a touchdown in Miami’s win.

A big day for Patriots RB Stevan Ridley almost went sour when he fumbled in the fourth quarter.

An examination of the decisions made by Jets General Manager Mike Tannenbaum heading into this season finds them lacking.

Ravens S Ed Reed said he predicted the quarterback sneak by Chiefs QB Matt Cassel that wound up as a fumble recovered by Reed.

Said Bengals DT Domata Peko, “We should have had this one. You could feel it in the locker room after the game. Tempers were flaring. Guys were mad. That’s different than years before. Nobody wants to lose around here. That’s going to carry us through.”

Browns WR Josh Gordon only caught two passes on Sunday, but both of them went for touchdowns.

The return of RB Rashard Mendenhall coincided with a strong day on the ground for the Steelers.

The Texans appear to be facing the Jets at the right moment.

Said Colts DE Cory Redding of the defense’s halftime adjustments, “We just said, ‘You know what? Enough is a e-freekin-nough. Put our foot down and let’s go after this ballgame and make them beat us.’ Our attitude changed in the second half.”

Being the home team on a hot day didn’t do much for the Jaguars.

It wasn’t a great start for Titans QB Matt Hasselbeck.

Mark Kiszla of the Denver Post thinks Broncos coach John Fox lost his matchup with Patriots coach Bill Belichick.

Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles is fine with the team running him early and often.

DE Andre Carter feels ready to roll when the Raiders return from their bye.

Chargers WR Robert Meachem’s homecoming was a bright spot in the team’s loss.

It will come as no surprise to any Cowboys observer that Drew Pearson has decided to share another opinion about Dez Bryant.

Giants rookie RB David Wilson and WR Rueben Randle came up with performances that should quiet some of their critics.

Members of the Eagles defense lamented their failure to come up with a stop at the end of their loss to the Steelers.

A leap into the stands didn’t really go off as planned at the end of Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan’s interception return for a touchdown.

Bears CB Charles Tillman and LB Lance Briggs are the first teammates in history to each return interceptions for touchdowns in two straight games.

Rookie WR Ryan Broyles is waiting for his shot with the Lions.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said that the team’s underachieving starts with him.

WR Percy Harvin is the first Vikings player with a rushing, receiving and kick return touchdown in three straight seasons.

The Falcons are 5-0 for the first time in franchise history.

Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams wasn’t happy to hear from fantasy football players on Twitter.

Saints QB Drew Brees and WR Marques Colston made some nice music together on Sunday night.

The Buccaneers run defense should probably prepare itself for a heavy dose of the Chiefs ground game.

Cardinals wide receivers Larry Fitzgerald and Andre Roberts have made the most of their touches this season.

DE Robert Quinn has blossomed into the pass rusher the Rams envisioned he would be.

49ers WR Kyle Williams’ 43-yard touchdown catch was his latest step away from being just the guy who fumbled in the NFC Championship Game.

Two sacks from DE Bruce Irvin helped the Seahawks hold on to beat the Panthers.

    I hope the football gods or wizards stop over rating the Packers and give them the rating they deserve. Last year was last year. This team has not improved over that and its not a fluke they are 2-3. They are a 2-3 team. They probably will end up 6-10 team and everyone will say WTF.
    There’s no WTF here. This team is not talented.
    Rogers can’t pass without O line protection, no one can so eliminate his talent.
    Mathews can’t get to to QB when all the plays go the other way and there is no one on the other side playing the ball.
    The defensive backs are 5’9 and trying to cover all the 6’4 receivers when most other teams have all gone to 6’1 6’2 DB’s. Oh, that’s right the Packs DB’s were mostly 4,5,6 round picks available for a cheap price. Forgot that.
    The Pack did acquire the always hurt always fumbling Benson. That is their running game and that running game is now hurt.
    But the O line. This is the worst O line in football. So lets rate the team accordingly and understand, this is not a talented team.

    No… Jack DelRio and the Denver D lost that one. You actually have to stop the other team from scoring a few times, eh Jack? Sadly, the NE Offense was no surprise. Denver D was woefully unprepared.

    Just a heads up… you have the wrong link posted for the Fitzgerald and Roberts one-liner.
